Luxurious fluffy skirt is a characteristic feature of a classic ball gown wedding dress. It is a magnificent dress, like a princess, that every girl dreams of wearing to her wedding. The puffy skirt of a wedding dress can only remain a mystery to those who have never chosen and worn it. Well, everyone else is well aware that for such an effect you need only one small, hidden from the eyes of strangers, but a very important detail — a wedding petticoat. As it turned out, not only classic wedding dresses need it, but also A‑silhouette or empire styles, with the exception, perhaps, of tight-fitting and ultra-short models.
What are the petticoats for a wedding dress?
A petticoat under a wedding dress favorably emphasizes the peculiarity of its style, gives the skirt a formality, splendor, completeness and helps the bride to look her best. Let’s find out what are wedding petticoats?
- Petticoat with rings crinoline — This is the classic, most common and relatively inexpensive option. It has a rigid shape, which is supported by rings located one above the other. The shape of such a petticoat depends on the number of rings, which can be from one to seven. An important advantage of such a petticoat is that it creates space around the bride’s legs, which allows her to move freely and not get tangled in the skirt while dancing or walking. Of the minuses, it is worth noting that when walking it rises, and the frame of the rings shows through the thin fabric of the dress a little.
- Lush tulle petticoat Can be worn on its own or over a crinoline hooped petticoat to give the dress even more volume and hide the hoops. When used alone, it is not possible to achieve the same effect of splendor as when worn over a petticoat with rings.
How to fold a wedding petticoat?
Many brides who have chosen a petticoat with rings for their wedding dress have a question about how to fold it in order to put it away for storage. If there are three rings in the crinoline, you need to put them on top of each other and fold them so that you get a “figure eight”, and then turn them back and put the circles on top of each other. If there are more than two rings, then for the same actions you need to take two rings each. Having folded the petticoat “eight”, you can put it in a special bag for storing the crinoline.
