beautyofdreams: I love the ‘banding’ on each layer of the skirt. Yea I’d go for a trumpet crinoline. Can you go to the shop and try some on with the sample of your dress.

beautyofdreams: A mermaid’s shape flares out at the knee not on the thigh like yours.

Get a hoop skirt petticoat!!! 

 

I loved mine so much! It gives you the shape you want and the volume without extra weight and it keeps you cool under the dress. Best decision ever!

eBay. Super cheap and they have sooo many different styles. You can always get it altered with your dress. I showed my seamstress the ones I was looking at and she helped me pick the best shape. Mine had like 4 hoops which I thought was great at first but we wound up removing 2 and that worked better but it was easy to work with ans honestly the bottom is the most influential on holding the shape.

Sorry I glossed over this but I don’t think the terms mermaid and trumpet matter. Thy really have so many shapes that even if it doesn’t have the right words you want to pick based on how the shape of te hoops look in relation to your dress shape.
