Do I need to a mermaid petticoat for this dress? I’m not really sure. It looks fine without one, but I just finally found it on the model and I’m not sure now. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Also, would you call it classic? Just wondering

What’s a petticoat for? To make the bottom poof out more? If so then I would say that’s personal taste…
I think the dress is really pretty and definitely a classic look. The only part I’m not sold on is how thick that band of beading is. I love dresses with belts or sashes, but that’s too thick of a band for my taste… otherwise i think it’s classicly beautiful

@MsSteelTea: I think the petticoat could make it a little more poofed out at the bottom, but I also think it is a matter of personal taste and preference. I am not sure if the model is wearing a petticoat or not. Have you gotten the dress yet? I would try it on with and without one and see what you like better. The dress style is classic in my opinion, I would agree with the post above me that I am not a huge fan of the big band of beading but is a beautiful dress nonetheless. =)

Thanks! I did buy this dress in September and loved the way I looked in it. I asked for the simplest dress and this was what I got. I too wasn’t a fan of the beading around the waist, but for the price (can you imagine, $99 dollars?!) I couldn’t give it up. This is the first I’ve seen it on a model and was worried, since it looks a touch more poofy on the bottom.
Thanks so much! And on a different topic, there’s probably no way I can add a bustle to this, huh? Lol.

@MsSteelTea: I had the same dilemma I’d try one on so you can be sure

@MrsPhilly: +1 on the width of the beaded waistband. Otherwise it’s a stunning dress and a very classic take on the ever-popular mermaid silhouette.
You’d have to see the dress in person to judge whether it needs a crinoline (I assume it’s for just the flared part of the skirt). From the stock photo it looks like the fabric is already structured enough to stay full.

Thats a steal. I agree with the others, try it on with and without a pettycoat.

I agree that it’s a personal preference thing. Try it with and without and decide for yourself! 🙂
