My wedding gown is a trumpet fit and flare, with a chapel train attached.
I wore it for the first time yesterday, and found that the train did not stay (puffed and flat out), needed someone to pull it taut everytime I took a turn.
Is it advisable to use a crinoline for my train and type of gown?
What sort of hoop should I use, as I don’t want a full hoop, I worry that a full hoop will take away the silouette for the front part of my dress.
Any ideas, anyone? It will be greatly appreciated if anybody can provide me with advice from their own experience, and perhaps include a picture of how the recommended undergarment looks like?
Thanks everyone! here’s a pic of the train that I need to keep flared 🙂

I ordered a slip like this one – http://www.amazon.com/Merry-Modes-White-Trumpet-Mermaid/dp/B00659Z3A2 – from the bridal shop where I got my dress. It’s very form fitting (like shapewear) and then has layers of tulle to keep the bottom of my dress poofed out!

I’m wearing the AA princess jasmine which is a fit and flare/trumpet, i found wearing a mermaid hoop definitely made my dress look more dramatic and gave it a lovely shape 🙂

My dress is shaped like this and I am wearing a single hoop. The hoop is at the bottom so it poofs out the skirt just nice and gives the dress nice shape! Plus i felt sooo much cooler with it on!
