Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
How many of you ladies are wearing a hooped petticoat instead of or with crinoline?
Just for the heck of it, I got a hooped skirt. I decided to try it on with both of the dresses I am taking apart. I had a feeling that the snow-princess one below ( the one that looks overwhelming) would look better with a hoop, as you would be able to see the detailing more & it wouldn't just be hanging.
So, then I decided to try it on with the other dress. I had always thought of just wearing an A-Line petticoat with it, but decided to go for it just ofr sh*ts & giggles. Well, I must say, that one looks a bit better as well. When I just put the crinoline on with it, it looks like it's hanging as well ( I guess I never thought of it before)
So, I guess my question is this: How many of you are wearing hoops?
How do you go about sitting in one ? ( I assume I'll have to practice this)
Does it make it difficult to move between tables at the reception or to dance (like, will it push backwards & make the back of my dress look funny when doing our first dance & the father/daughter)?
The one plus is that I noticed that I will not need to hemm either one, as the hoop brings it up enough so I'm not tripping (not like that would really matter as I'm taking them both apart)
I will still wear my pint petticoat under it. I actually tried them on with both just to see & it looks fine. I really want to use the pink one, so I'm going to wear it either way.
