    I like the fullness in the photo – so if that’s what it looks like on you, I vote to stay as-is.

    I’m curious about this too. How many inches does one layer of crinoline raise up the skirt? I got mine custom ordered at HTH=57″ at 5’3″ + 3″ heels + 1″ of margin in case I want to wear higher shoes. I didn’t think about the crinoline until later. I’m wondering if the extra inch will cover this if I want to get one?

    I dont know what I am doing yet, but my dress kind of has a similar bottom.  I tried on the dress with crinoline and without, and I couldn’t tell a huge difference (altho my dress is a little more “naturally” poofier than yours).  I WILL say it made me super hot even just walking around in the dressing room with that on.  

    I would suggest trying it on locally with the crinoline to see if it makes a difference to you.  If you still can’t decide right now, i would say add an inch to your height, if you would feel comfortable wearing an inch higher shoes if you end up not wanting to wear the crinoline.

    i’m petite (5’1″, 95 lbs) and i got the same dress. for me the train was way too long. i’m getting a permanent bustle meaning they’re lifting and stitching it up. it looks soo much better on me like that.
