I haven’t even considered a crinoline for my dress, but it occurs to me that it might look lovely with one. I bought it off the rack, and I don’t have spare crinolines at my house to try on. So… I want your opinions! Should I buy one from ebay? If so, what kind? How full? (photo below is pre-alterations)

@Sunnybrook: I had this very same issue, so went back to store and tried it again with and without a crinoline, it’s worth doing

@CatyLady: Thanks! I didn’t get it from a traditional bridal shop, so I couldn’t go back to try on crinolines there. I wonder if another bridal shop would let me come in to do that… I suppose I’ll call around to see. Thanks for the suggestion.

I think that would look good with the A-line slip from David’s Bridal. I think they would let you try it on with it. If not, you can order them off the internet.

I think that a crinoline would look fab with your dress. I cant really tell you which on to get because I know nothing about them. However, I can’t see how more fullness could go wrong.

even a light crinoline will help your train lay flat as you walk, instead of folding in on itself. At the shop I work at, if someone wants to purchase a crinoline from us, they are very welcome to bring their dress in to try out the different fullnesses. Be sure to take your shoes along, as the fullness in the skirt will affect the hem directly.
