Your dress will not get stuck between your legs!  Since there is already a built in crinoline, I really don’t think it will need more poof.  Do you have a picture of the dress so we can see it?

I remember cullotes πŸ™‚

Without seeing your gown, I don’t know if it would be a problem or not. I suggest walking around in it; like up and down a hallway or something similar to see if that is a problem. Also, if you are going to be outside and the wind picks up, it may be a problem. Another suggestion would be to ask if you can purchase one of the used slips that they have at the store. They have usually been worn a lot, so don’t have as much poofiness.

I am going with the fullest slip available to have as much poof as I possibly can.

What style is your dress? Do you have a picture? The only wedding gowns I’ve seen lately that have crinolines under them are ballgowns. I can’t imagine your dress doing as you’ve described unless you were in tornado force winds.

 I just had one removed from my dress as I’m way too old for that poofiness and felt ridiculous in it. My fear was that it would throw off the lines of the dress but it was much better without it. If you like your dress the way it is,don’t be talked into anything that makes you uncomfortable or doubt yourself.

Sorry…posting at the same time. Pretty dress! Is this without the added slip? I don’t think you need anything more than you have if it is.

I think your dress looks great without the extra, and with that style, I don’t see you having and “cullote” moments πŸ™‚

I like the poof that the dress has without having an additional crinoline.  No cullotes there!  I took pictures and it was massively windy and I didn’t have any cullote moments either!

I honestly don’t know if it’s something you have to worry about, but I doubt it. If all else fails, you find a way to fix the problem (if there is one) AFTER the dress has been hemmed and you’ve gotten to walk around in it some.

Your dress is beautiful, by the way!
