I recommend trying both on whith your dress when it comes in. I purchased a hoop skirt on ebay and it ended up being too big for my dress to I took the hoop out and I added some tulle to it to make it fuller. It is a little warm but I plan on wearing some form of underarmor shorts to wick away the sweat.

I got an ebay 3-hoop skirt to wear and it was awesome. The hoops were pretty massive at first, but they are adjustable so you can shrink them down (they are a PAIN IN THE ASS to adjust, but no pain no gain, right?). You may want to look into a single hoop skirt, as that won’t get you in trouble with sitting down since the only hoop will be at the bottom. Sitting down in a hoop skirt is easy, though — you just have to pull it up a bit before you sit so you don’t have the pop up and flash everyone effect Wink

I do agree that your best bet is to try on both once you get your dress in!

I can’t stand hoops.  Hate them with a passion.  Sometimes they show up in pictures if you’re angled a certain way.  They are annoying when you’re trying to sit.  I prefer the full netting to achieve your look.

I’m a big fan of a hoop. It keeps the skirt off your legs and lets you move more comfortably.

Adding to the hoop love! I bought an adjustable 3-bone hoop skirt and it was the easiest thing in the world to wear.

My hoop showed in absolutely none of my photos (except where I purposely lifted my dress), nor did I flash anyone when I sat down. I loved that it kept all the layers of my dress off my legs, and going to the bathroom was SO easy (just popped the hoop upside down like a big bucket and lifted everything out of the way).

I’d say unless you want your dress huuuuuuge it’s better to go hoopless. If there aren’t a lot of layers in your dress, you could possibly see bumps from the hoops, and I feel like the shape and movement of the dress seems less natural/pretty with a hoop skirt.

I have heard hoop is the way to go to keep the dress off your legs and keep you cool. I’ll definitely be getting one if I go with Enzoani Farlow.
