I am wearing a <span class=”description”>satin/chiffon split front A-line with a sweep train with a slip.  I don’t think you need crinoline unless the dress skirt really needed to be supported to look full.

Personally I hate crinolines.  They are itchy and sometimes heavy.  I say go for a slip – it looks like a really pretty dress without any extra pouf.

teacher bride, you dress doesn’t look like it would need anything more than a slip underneath (to prevent your dress from tucking itself between your legs).

  A petticoat (think slip with many layers of sewn-in tulle) makes your dress wider, a crinoline (a slip with hoops built in to give it a bell shape, also sometimes with tulle) will give you a very big ballgown look IF you had a dress that was already that shape.  Your dress is a very slim a-line/sheath so you wouldn’t need anything except for a floor-length plain slip! 


Ps. your dress is beautiful!

Any department store with a lingerie section would have one – even though us youngsters don’t wear them much these days, they’re still popular with the older generations!
