No hoop. I think it looks odd with it.

JeannieMarie12391:  Maybe instead of a hoop you can try a slip? It’ll be more comfortable and flow with the dress better.

No hoop. It looks more sleek and sophisticated without it.

I vote no hoop.  If you want to fluff it out a little you could get a slip with some poof at the bottom like this: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_a-line-silhouette-slip-alineslip_accessories-slips-and-shapewear

I used something very similar to the above slip and it helped fill out the bottom of my dress a bit so it wasn’t limp.  If you see how my dress is below, without the slip it just laid flat against my lower legs.  Although I think your’s looks fine without anything.

I vote not to hoop, but to try the slip with tulle. It doesn’t have to make it completely full, but I think it looks great with a little bit of volume. 🙂

No. Looks way more natural without it.

I agree no hoop. It drapes really nicely as is!

I actually really like the hoop. I think it makes your skirt more dramatic and more of a statement. I wore a hoop with my gown (though I had a ballgown, not a mermaid), and it had the added bonus of keeping the dress off my legs so I didn’t get so hot (I got married in October and it was only 70 that day, but the dress was hotter than I thought it’d be).

I know you wont want to make it too tight around your knees but if a dressmaker nipped it in a teeny bit right where it starts to flare I think it would really make it and your amazing figure pop even more. It’s a really fabulous dress on you.

Hoop it up! I like poof in a wedding dress, regardless of the style. It’s probably going to be the only time you will ever get a chance to wear one too. I feel like it gives it more of a wedding dress look  and somehow it makes your waist look smaller & your booty pop!?! I’m not sure how, but it does…and that’s a good thing!

Hmm. I want to say without but I think you should have it fitted before you decide
