Hi All! I am looking for kind of fifties style circle dress is midnight blue/navy. I ideally want this kind of shape, but with straps (and in my colour)
I found this style in Coast in the colour I want but no oomph- would a hoop or petticoat oomph it out? I am not sure what would do this. Sorry if this message shows twice, it looks as though it never loaded first time…. for me anyway! Has anyone seen anything similar?

A petticoat would indeed give it a little extra poof, as long as there is enough gathers in the skirt. From the picture I think it would be fine.
I wouldn’t recommend using a hoop in a skirt that lenght, they wouldn’t be able to sit!
Maybe check out unique vintage or etsy for more options?

Definitely no hoop! If they sit, their everything will be showing! I like the idea of using a slightly poofy petticoat or something.

I’m sure I’ve seen dresses perfect for what you’ve described on the Dessy website. Straps, prom style with a bit of poof- in lot’s of colours too. The only problem with Dessy is tracking down who stocks them, and if they even stock the one you are after. Worth a look though!
EDIT: not Dessy sorry, Kelsey Rose! For more poof though, I agree with the petticoats. Get them cheap on ebay!
