I have been to a lot of bridal shops, and you always had to buy them separately.

A lot of dresses come with tulle or some other fabric built in if you’re looking for a puffy dress, but if you want that extra poof, like a more structured less droopy look you will have to purchase your crinoline separately.

SOME designers make dresses with crinolines already inside, but for the most part you purchase them.

So, my dress actually has a small lining of tulle under it, but it still doesn’t quite give it the shape I desire with my dress.  I have yet to find out if the added crinoline is what i’m looking for.  So, to answer your question, some dresses will come with a bit of material underneath, but probably not enough to poof up a dress necessarily the way you see it on the model photos!  It all comes down to preference.

Most dresses have a layer or two of tulle but not enough to really show the shape of the dress. Higher end dresses like Pnina Tornai come with a full crinoline already built in. Ofcourse considering the price of a pnina dress I would expect it to come with a  car built in too!

I was wondering this myself lately.

It depends on the style of dress you have and the look you are going for.  Most dresses will have tulle underneath like others have mentioned, but if you want to keep the material away from your legs and help keep you cool, a hoop skirt is a great option!  Davids Bridal has some great slips, and a medium one for more A line styles.  I think I am going with that… its this one:
