Posting to see some, I’m debating getting a hoop skirt too to accomodate that extra 2 inches or so that make the dress too long without having to alter.

i tried on a hoop with my original dress:

it made the skirt hard to walk in. with my current dress, i won’t be wearing a hoop. i don’t have photos of me in it, but it could be worn with one. i just don’t want any more poof at the bottom, it’s got enough layers of tulle inside and outside (:

@raisedonrobbery:  it made it awkward. like, i kept feeling the hoop. maybe it was just the hoop that the store had, but it was pretty awkward. i find that ballgowns with huge amounts of tulle underneath, or a tulle petticoat were easier to walk in than the ballgown with the hoop. they were much hotter, but i couldn’t feel the hoop hitting my legs as i walked.
