I didn’t buy a hoop, rather a small crinoline skirt to wear under my dress. My dress is an aline tulle ballgown. It looks good and rather puffy already without adding the tulle skirt under but the when added the skirt gives the dress a bit of umph!
Are you guys wearing anything under your ballgowns or wearing them as is?

I wore a crinoline under my dress. It really enhanced the skirt!
There are one or two photos where I kicked up my dress a little and the crinoline looks so nice underneath!

Mine is a tulle ballgown too, and WITHOUT a crinoline or hoop it’s already so damn puffy I’m seriously considering removing a layer to tone it down a notch.

I wore a hoop! My dress was 53lbs, so a crinoline couldn’t properly lift it!

I wore a hoop! it kept the dress off my legs and it was soooo much cooler (June + outdoors = hot). Plus it puffed out the way I wanted it too 😀

I wore a drop waist crinoline skirt. It was more mermaid/trumpet fitted but woked great because I wanted my ballgown more fitted at the waist and flared out towards the bottom:

I’m just wearing the skit slip thing that DB sold me. It does the trick to make the skirt poof.

I also wore a dropped waist crinoline skirt. My dress had built in crinoline but I wanted more poof.

@Ryansgirl: Squeee that’s exactly (well, in possibly a different color) what I want to do! Where did you get it, or did you dye it yourself?!?

I’m planning on wearing a hoop skirt to poof out my aline tulle skirt. I want it to be more round at the top…like Cinderella.

@supersandra: Actually I found someone on Etsy (who happens to be on the Bee too!) who made it for me! But I just tried searching for her on Etsy, and she’s not there anymore 🙁
