- Wedding: September 2012
I’ve purchased a ball gown wedding dress that has a capel length train. When I tried the gown on in the store I had petticoat 1 undernealth. It looked nice but looked weird at the same time as you could cleary see where the petticoat ended. The dress poofed out and then stopped suddenly and layed flat. I asked the consultant if I could wear a petticoat with a train undernealth and she said no, I was confused as to why but left it at that.
When I showed my Mum the gown (she wasnt with me when I found and purchased the dress) I asked the consultant (a different lady than before) what petticoat I should wear with it, she said the one you are wearing now petticoat 1 (a brand new one of course) I was a bit surprised as too why both consultants are suggesting this petticoat.
Sadly the store doesn’t have a train petticoat in store for me to try on. They just dont do them.
The model pic of the dress looks as if she isn’t wearing a train petticoat and it looks like the train of the dress is caving in! My train doesn’t sit like that, it lays flat like a pancake. So my question is should I buy petticoat 2 to wear under my dress?
Should I wait until my gown arrives in March???
