I have a ball gown dress and will be wearing a mega full 6 hoop skirt. It’s not as uncomfortable as I thought. I will be getting married in 2 days and have pracice walking, sitting, and dancing in the hoop skirt several times. I have a satin gown with crinoline lining, so the hoop doesn’t bulge out very big. I adjusted the hoops closest to my waist line so it doesn;t fluff out too much around my hips. I am 4’9 and my dress has lots of beading and crystals. I thought about getting it bustled, but the dress is far too pretty to mess up the original design. I love my huge hoop skirt. I practiced dancing with my FH while wearing the hoop skirt only, and it didn’t bother him at all. Although everyone has their own opinions, I really, really love mines.

I don’t think hoops are uncomfortable per se…I just don’t love them sylistically.  My aunt wore hoops for her wedding dress and when she walked, I could see an outline of one of the hoops against her dress.  Showed up in some photos as well.  Also, she had to sit at dinner with it, and it was all over the place.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I am so sorry….I haven’t bee on here in quite some time. Dancing in my gown was sooooo much fun! I ordered a mega full petticoat off Ebay that had flexible rings, so it didn’t feel uncomfortable when we danced or when people hugged me. I twirled the night away in my extra poofy dress. I was told several times that it looked as if I was floating on clouds! The extra hoops gave the dress a completely different look and I felt like a true princess.
