I am going to try this …. but have no idea if it will work. Thank you for your patience!
What would you wear under this dress (in terms of crinoline, slip, etc) It has a small sweep train and is A-line in the front, but really not that full. Is there a smaller slip I should know about?
Thank you in advance!

I am wearing a <span class=”description”>satin/chiffon split front A-line with a sweep train with a slip. I don’t think you need crinoline unless the dress skirt really needed to be supported to look full.

Personally I hate crinolines. They are itchy and sometimes heavy. I say go for a slip – it looks like a really pretty dress without any extra pouf.

teacher bride, you dress doesn’t look like it would need anything more than a slip underneath (to prevent your dress from tucking itself between your legs).
A petticoat (think slip with many layers of sewn-in tulle) makes your dress wider, a crinoline (a slip with hoops built in to give it a bell shape, also sometimes with tulle) will give you a very big ballgown look IF you had a dress that was already that shape. Your dress is a very slim a-line/sheath so you wouldn’t need anything except for a floor-length plain slip!
Ps. your dress is beautiful!

Any department store with a lingerie section would have one – even though us youngsters don’t wear them much these days, they’re still popular with the older generations!
