i saw on here a bride who dyed her crinny purple. it was so pretty. my only thought is do i need a crinny with a bubble hem dress? what is it really worn for?
i don’t think i do but i really want that little secret pop of color now that i saw hers!

No, you don’t ever *need* a crinoline under any dress! You should only wear one/several if you like your dress to look fuller/poofier. If that is your dress, I personally think it would benefit from some crinoline-ing, but if you like the way it looks better without one, then by all means keep it so. Also, crinolines are mostly (and historically) used to fluff out the dress and do not peak out from under the hem; it’s only in the past thirty years or so that allowing your crinoline to poke out has been something not totally tasteless/a sign of an ill-tailored garment and instead something cute and fun in certain cases.

I think that it really depends on the look you are going for. I suggest you try some on with your gown and if you like the fullness, then you will be better able to make your decision. I am getting the fullest one they sell because I want my gown to be poofy. I am also considering dying my crinoline for that extra pop of color.

You never “need” one, like veganglam said, but if you want one, I think it would look great!

Ooh, bubble hem. Love bubble hems. I think your dress is a nice amount of pouf-y as is, but it all depends on the desired look.

You only need it if you want more poof. If you don’t and still want some crino showing through check with a seamstress. They may be able to add some to one of the inner layers of your dress.

thanks for the comments and suggestions everyone! my only concern was that maybe the waist would show because there isn’t much detail around the dress. that will change a little bit once i add the beading/lace and sash. i will try some on. thanks again.

i found a crinoline to wear under my bubble hem dress! i never though it would add such a “cindarella feel” to it. and better yet, it was from a lady on craigslist who sold it for $20. i can’t wait to dye it purple now. thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions. i will post final results in my DIY section when it’s done.
