I would go with hoop skirt B…I love big ball gowns. And I really think that crinoline slip will help give your mermaid dress some volume.  Beautiful dresses!

I would go with A. I’m not a huge fan of poof though, so a bit biased.

I think having less poof is more flattering to your figure.

I would go with hoop skirt A, seems perfect. The other one will add way too much poof to your dress and may make all those layers sit quite weird. Hoop skirt B would work on a ballgown with less detail in the skirt.

The crinoline for the mermaid looks perfect.

I personally would go with Hoopskirt A, I think it would be perfect and not too princessy. I dont think it will make it look aline either when its in addition to the dress. Love the mermaid dress and think that crinoline will be perfect.!

Regarding your mermaid underskirt: bees call it ‘crinoline’ but it’s not. It’s a one-hoop underskirt. I actually ordered similar underskirt for my dress (I posted a picture in JBS thread), which is kinda trumpet, even though I didn’t want any. But my dress is a bit too long and my wedding is in August, so I hope that I will solve 2 problems with just one underskirt: adjust the length and keep the skirt away from my legs.
