Ok a few days ago i bought a cheap petticoat from China, it’s a floor length ball gown petticoat made with mulitple layers of tulle and a layer of taffeta, it has three tiers. It was their number one selling ball gown petticoat and it had loads of good reviews, but sometimes I worry if I picked the right petticoat. I did research and I read that if your gown is made of soft fabric like organza, you need to stay away from hoop petticoats. My gown is an organza gown so I wanted to stay away from hoop skirts, but since it’s a ball gown I worry if the tulle petticoat will be able to hold it’s shape against the gown. The gown isn’t heavy (compared to satin ball gowns) so I hope the tulle holds up.
So what petticoats are you using, and did you have a hard time picking out yours? Is there anyone with a satin sheath gown? What do you wear with that? I’m having a built in bra put into my reception sheath gown, and I have no-show underwear as well. My reception sheath hasn’t come in yet, so I don’t know what I need for that, my dress maker is putting boning in it if that helps. Also, is there anyone out there with a ball gown that can help me with my deliema? I opted for the cheapest form of shipping, so I’ll have to wait 2 – 4 weeks before I can try the petticoat on with my dress.
This thread is mostly for everyone sharing and helping eachother with the confusion of petticoats and undergarments. So feel free to share whatever you feel like. 🙂
