As I posted a few days ago, I found my dream dress!! Now to make the decision… the bridal consultant told me people normally don’t use a petticoat/crinoline with this dress, but the photo from the catalog shows the dress looking bigger so I assume they used something under it so I wanted to try it out…
Catalog photo for reference.
With the petticoat/crinoline

@MissFireFlower: agreed. i have to be honest i can’t tell the difference. which to me would mean go without because it will be more comfortable.
but go with whatever makes you the most confident!

Very pretty dress; you look absolutely lovely! The profile is MUCH more graceful without the crinoline, and it will feel much more natural to move around in it if you’re taking up so much space 🙂

I say make it bigger.
It really depends on how much oomph you want to add to your look. I like the skirt both ways, but I think the crinoline steps things up a notch. Also, more volume on the bottom makes you look even slimmer

Looks the same to me.. the crinoline may just make it a smudge fluffier.
But, it’ll stay fluffy when you move, where as you might need to adjust it everytime you want to take a picture without it.

@MlleFabuleux: Thank you!!! I’m going to ask for a bigger petticoat next time to see the difference but I like the look a bit more with the crinoline!

I like it either way, its such a pretty dress! Keep in mind though, that when YOUR dress comes in it will be much fuller then the sample. The samples get so crushed up and abused. Could you possibly wait until your dress comes in to make the decision on the crinoline or not? That way you dont order it unnecessarily… Good luck!!!!

I think it looks much more balanced with the crinoline. Beautiful dress!

I say with…only because it will keep the shape once the dress is hemmed. The first pic the dress lays ln the floor giving the illusion the dress has a shape. Once that is taken away the dress would fall flat a tad. Both options are gorgeous but a little more poof will keep the shape as well as keeps the dress away from your feet.

Beautiful dress! Don’t think its a huge difference with or without it.
