So I was seriously considering wearing two slips underneath my dress to really poof it out but then when I tried it with just one, I was already sweating! Does anybody else have this problem??? I feel like it just gets so hot wearing a slip and a corset under the dress that’s pretty heavy to begin with. My wedding will be mid-October. It won’t be too hot but it won’t exactly be cold. If I was having a winter wedding I’d wear the two slips.
Anybody have any similar problems? Solutions? Opinions!? haha

I don’t have a ballgown but I had purchased a crinoline slip to help add some fullness to my dress. When I took it to my alterations lady (not getting it altered in-store), she told me to lose the slip and she is just adding crinoline in herself. She said she thinks the slips can sometime add a “sausage” effect and it’s easier and more comfortable to just add it in. It’s cheaper, too!

I’m wearing a flexible hoop skirt to help puff out my big tulle ball gown. It might be 85 degrees when I get married. I tried the other slips and started sweating bullets. My legs in particular were melting. I was worried the hoop skirt would look ridiculous and pop up when I sit down but it doesn’t and it keeps me from sweating like I ran a marathon. Plus, it is so much easier to walk in my dress with the hoops. I got one that has a fabric train attached to it so it also puffs out my dress’s train and keeps my dress from getting grass stains and twigs and what not caught in the tulle.

Thanks for the tips! I’ll ask my seamstress if she would be able to add. If not, I’ll look for a hoop skirt! 🙂
