DEFINITELY the first one!

The second one is made for a dress with an ENORMOUS train (it’s the hape of hoop I had, and my train was about 10ft long)

And when you bustle the train, you’d have to bustle the hoop, too, which is a pretty serious PITA.

@jjackson1982:  I’m not sure about all David’s Bridal or if you have one around you but I would call and see if you can bring your dress in to try on with their crinoline/hoop.  

I know the one near me lets you bring your dress in to try on with belts, shoes any other item you might buy there.

What is your dress made of? The fabric looks quite thin and lightweight, I’d be worried that a hoop from the hoop skirt would actually show through. If the dress doesn’t weigh much on its own, you could try a hoopless petticoat, which is basically just layers of tulle to give some shape and fullness.

@jjackson1982:  I think most petticoats include a layer of soft fabric where it touches your legs so the tulle doesn’t scratch you. If you don’t manage to find anything in a bridal shop near you, try looking on ebay. 

I’m a little jealous your dress is made of silk, it feels so good against your skin, doesn’t it? 🙂
