    @O.My.Heart:  Gosh, that’s a tough decision! It looks beautiful both ways! I think I would go with the hoop though. Especially knowing you can walk easier!

    @O.My.Heart:  I like the hoop! It’s not a huge difference, but just enough to take the dress from pretty to GORGEOUS!

    I like the hoop.  I think the salesperson is right that the hoop shows off the details on the bottom more and it would be easier to walk in.  The difference is very subtle and the hoop doesn’t look too mermaid-ish to me.

    I like the hoop it gives it the right amount of added volume! Have you tried sitting with it on thou? I’ve heard they are awkward to sit in.

    I voted no hoop because I like the movement of the dress better.  But it’s so not noticeable…so I would go with whichever is more comfortable/less expensive.

    This is going to sound strange, but I feel that with the hoop your curves look better! I guess the slightly more dramatic angle emphasizes them, simply for that and the fact that its easier to walk I would use the hoop!

    I like the hoop too! It accentuates the shape, but its not overdone! I am wearing a hoop too and it makes my life easier!

    I agree with minipenguin!  The hoop makes you look classy and sexy at the same time.  It makes the dress very chic looking and adds a better shape to the ruffles than without the hoop.  Of course this is all my own opinion, and if you originally liked the dress, and fell in love with the dress, without the hoop, then don’t wear it.  You’re the one who is wearing the dress, you need to love it!  I hope the decision is an easy one for you!  Everyone with love you and the dress, no matter how you wear it!

    I vote no hoop, as I prefer the flow of the fabric without!

    I vote with hoop. It makes the dress pop just a little more. Either way you look amazing in the dress! If its easier to walk in it thats a plus too

    I like the added volume with the hoop, it looks fantastic.

    If you aren’t comfortable in moving or sitting with a hoop (which can be awkard) have you considered a mermaid slip? That is what I ended up getting and it provided just the right amount of added volume but was super comfortable and easy to move around in.
