So I tried on my dress today with a full mermaid hoopless petticoat and now I know I definitely want one. I tried on 4.5in wedges with it and it was still 1 to 1.5 in too long. Too me I thought it made it too short, But i really dont know how to tell. I could definitely walk in this time! Without a petticoat I just waddled lol! So they told me they could iron/steam/starch (one of those, can’t quite remember what the lady said) the petticoat to make it fuller. Which might solve the problem, or I could get 5.5-6inch wedges, or I could get my dress hemmed. So I’m thinking of getting 5-5.5 inch wedges and a fuller petticoat. What’s the difference between a hooped petticoat and a hoopless? Which would be better? And where’s the best place to get a cheap full mermaid petticoat? Any other advice from fellow bees is welcome as well!! Thanks!
