    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. =)

    @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! 🙂
