Untll now I have not thought about whether to wear a poofy slip under my dress or not. I am wearing the Maggie Sottero Grace gown which is a clean, strapless A line… I kind of like the non-poofy look of it. But I suppose even on the maggie website the girl modeling the grace still has a small slip underneath?
Who i wearing a poofy slip underneath (I don’t even know what its officially called) ha ha. ? How did you decide?

i was wondering the same thing about my dress. i personally prefer without the poof, but be it that it is a wedding dress, i can see how the poof CAN work too… i’m still stuck on deciding, good luck on your poof process!

I think the model is definitely wearing a slip with crinoline underneath.
If you want an Al-line look, you will want to buy the A-line slip. If you want more of a sheath look, don’t wear. Just be sure to tell the tailor so he or she will alter it correctly.

I think you probably will need a crinoline to get the look the model has. I would suggest looking on craigslist or ebay for a used or cheap one. That way if you don’t like the look, you didn’t spend a lot on the slip!

definitely “poof” – a regular crinoline will give you the look of that model – lifted, full, but not necessarily puffy or big.

Hmmm… well, the more I look into this – it seems that some kind of slip will be in order…. I suppose I have to wait for my dress to arrive before I can try any on!

I was not planning on wearing one, but the more I look at the pictures of my dress, the more I think about it. I think it would look my waist look even smaller.

I’m trying to decide on the same thing. The slip that was recommended for my dress made it way too “poofy” for me when I tried it. My dress already has some crinoline underneath and I like it as is. However, the consultant informed me that the dress could get stuck between my legs while walking if I wear nothing underneath. I’m planning on looking for just a plain slip to (hopefully) avoid this. Not sure what my options are.

No poof, you’ll be a lot more comfertable and the dress will drap very prettily across your body!
Always go for comfert!
