This probably won’t be too helpful, but I think with this dress, it depends what kind of profile you want to achieve. Do you want all of the ruffle-tiered part to look full?  then get a regular crinoline.  Do you want the top tiers to stay closer to your body and only have great volume on the bottom 2, maybe three ruffles?  then get the mermaid.

I bought “Jenna” as well. I was originally only trying on mermaid/trumpet style gowns, tried on this dress on a whim, and ended up purchasing it- now I’m having second thoughts!!! I really like the way this dress looks on the Maggie site, but on me it sort of fell flat (granted it was very wrinkled), it seemed like it didn’t have as much tulle, etc. underneath to create volume like on the Maggie site. Have you noticed this? I’m thinking about potentially going for a hoop or really poofy crinoline under this dress. I want my dress to make a statement, which is why I was only looking at really different mermaid styles, and as is, this dress is giving me major second thoughts!


Have you found a crinoline you think will work?
