I am going to have a ballgown wedding dress (not tooo large because I am only 5’4") and I want it to look really full but I don’t really want to have that big hoop thing underneath – I don’t want to look like the women from the King and I! I want to have more of a natural movement to it, especially in the pictures.
However, I am not sure if it is possible to walk down the aisle WITHOUT the hoop thing. will my dress get caught between my legs? When I tried on the sample, I had to hold onto the skirt of the dress as I came out of the fitting room – but I am not sure if that was just because it was really big on me. I don’t want to walk down the aisle holding my skirt up, how can I do this with a bouquet in my hand? haha!
Can i ask what you all did? Thanks!!

Mines big and pooy ball gown type, I would suggest using a large crenolin (spelling error there I know) The poffy slip you put under the dress. They come in all sizes. This will give you poof and keep you from needing the "hoop"
The dress shop you go to should be able to let you try on all different sizes of them and offer you more help as well in case you don’t like that option or it doens’t quite work for you.

My dress has built in crinoline, so I don’t need to wear a separate one. However, my bridal salon suggested that I still wear a slip under my dress so that the dress doesn’t go between my legs, just like you said. Hope that helps!

thanks, ladies. my dress will also be coming with built in crinoline, but the dress maker said that it looks better/fuller with the hoop along with that, so i wanted to see if it was really necessary. you all made me feel much better about no thaving one!

You can add a crinoline and/or wear a petticoat instead. 🙂
