It really depends if you want “air conditioning” for your legs basically. Crinoline will be against your legs all day, and what the hoop does will provide you a fuller looking dress with ventilation because your dress will not be sitting on your legs but rather the hoop itself.


What I would do is try both on under your dress, see which is more comfortable to you and which one looks better and go from there. I am getting a hoop because I found it more comfortable and my dress is rather heavy so adding the crinoline would have added extra weight. I attached a picture of the hoop below. There are different types of hoops as well, some have 2-3 hoops while others have one. Hope that helps 🙂
