    If you want it more full like the model picture than definitely a hoop skirt would be a good option. Alterations also might be able to add extra layers to your existing crinoline to make it fuller.

    and it could depend on what size  crinoline. if its a regular vs. a mega. if yours is regular, I would look into the mega

    this particular dress, In My Humble Opinion, looks best with the hoop skirt.  I like the way they create the fullness, but every bride I have ever talked to said you cannot sit down at all while wearing one. That would suck to be so uncomfortable all day!

    I kind of like it without the hoop (just the crinoline)…

    Are the hoops really hard to remove? Maybe you could wear it just for the ceremony and pics and then take it off for the reception so you’re comfortable.

    @europomme: I LOVE my hoop skirt.  It gives my dress the fullness I want without it being too puffy and it also keeps all the crinoline built into my dress off of my legs which was the selling point for me.  No way I wanted to have layed of crinoline laying on my legs all night.

     

    ETA: I made sure when I tried on the hoop skirt at the bridal salon with my dress that I walked around and sat down in different chairs they had there and I honestly didnt have any problems with sitting in the hoop.

    I personally think the dress looks better on you than on the model. So my vote is no hoop skirt.

    Wow I never knew there was that much of a difference until now… I love the look with the hoop!

    You could always just wear it for the ceremony and photos and replace it with the crinoline for the reception…

    I have the same problem!  I also wanted the fullness of the model pic of my dress, and my crinoline is not doing it.  I thought about a hoop skirt too, but all the reviews on sitting keep me away from it.  BUT, I would love to get that crinoline away from my legs!  SO HOT UNDER THERE!  Please update us when you try it!  Maybe I’ll try it too 🙂

    Here’s me in my dress with my crinoline…needs more poof!

    @europomme:I actually bought my crinoline from that ebay seller.  Great prices and they ship super fast!  I got my slip 2 days later.  I might try sewng more crinoline to my slip…hmm….Definately let me know how it feels on when you get it and if you can sit!
