The number of hoops doesn’t mean the skirt will be longer, it means the hoops are closer together. Generally, the more hoops, the more bell-shape you get. I’ve also heard that if your dress is really heavy, you need more hoops to be able to support it. My dress is a simple satin gown, and I got a 3 hoop skirt to just make it a very full A-line.
I also suggest buying your hoop skirt off EBay. They have every style of skirt you could ever need, and mine was $8 with free shipping. Great quality.
