ok so I had ordered my dress online because I knew it would work out but now I need to find a good petticoat/slip for under it. I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I’ve been looking on ebay but I don’t know what to buy.
My dress is from the Mori Lee Blu Collection. 4816- It has a crinoline slip already built into it, but I’m trying to avoid having my dress lifted because it would cost a pretty penny to lift it only like a quarter to half inch off the ground… So I thought “why not put another slip on underneath it?” I like that it poofs out a bit like a ballroom gown.
I’m trying to avoid hoops because I don’t want the dress to fly up when I sit down, but if hoops is what I need, then I guess I’ll have to get one with hoops. I’ve attached pictures of the gown (note: i’m not wearing a bra and the person who help me put it on didn’t tie it tight enough so it’s a little saggy) and hopefully some of you can help me to decide if i should get a hooped slip, a crinoline slip or any other kind. Suggestions are wonderful! Sharing experiences are too so please ladies help me out!

I’m wearing the same dress! In the store we added an extra slip-on peti coat, and it helped fill it out a lot more. Looked really good, because it seems to kinda “sag” on the bottom with nothing under there.

I recommend hoop skirts for comfort. Crinoline is so hot! I need a hoop skirt to keep myself cooler. I have practiced sitting in it and it does take practice, but it can be done :o)

The skirt I have on in the picture only has 3 hoops in it. Some lady tried telling me that I needed six but that just seemed ridiculous.
And I’m going to say it again, hoops allows your legs to breath so much more! even without a crinoline underneath my dress I was getting warm, but with the hoop skirt on I was just perfect! I also learned how to sit with a hoop skirt on which really wasn’t that hard of a concept at all. Just lift up the back of your dress before you sit. You’ll be sitting on the hoops a little but they face downward when you do so your dress doesn’t fly up. I love hoops!
