Buy or not
Well, what bride doesn’t want to look beautiful at her wedding and feel comfortable with every move. No matter how beautiful a puffy dress looks, the presence of petticoats in the image is in no way associated with convenience and comfort — this is the opinion of most brides. It is also embarrassing that the petticoat can rise at the moment when the bride is in the hands of the groom. The case is quite curious and very common.Do not blame the petticoat for not fitting it correctly. The right petticoat will not behave in this way, putting the bride in an uncomfortable position and providing inconvenience on any successful occasion.
So let’s look at the length. Too long will make every step difficult, and short will bring incompleteness and even absurdity to the image. The most optimal length of this element in a wedding look is in the range of 120 — 150 cm. There is another principle for choosing the length of the petticoat — from 10 to 30 cm should remain to the floor. So let’s choose the right wedding element that is responsible for the splendor of your wedding dress and be surprised at how easy your movements remain and how high comfort you can experience.
What can be petticoats?

The Jest petticoat consists of five tiers of fabric or a rigid mesh. In an independent version, it is suitable for A‑line and empire dresses. Can be used in combination with crinoline rings, preventing them from spoiling the silhouette of the dress. And here there is a minus, which is insufficient splendor if the Jest petticoat is used without hard rings.
With soft rings on the fabric
Similar in design to classic petticoats are elements of a wedding look with a soft fabric base and flexible rings. These petticoats do not irritate the skin and do not rise during movement. They are so invisible under a skirt that they can be used for very light fabrics folded in several layers (chiffon and tulle).
From how many rings are present on the petticoat, it should be used with various outfits:
- if there is not a single ring, then you can complement the empire and mermaid dress;
- if you have one ring, you can use it in outfits from the previous paragraph, A‑line and any dress with a straight cut;
- two or three rings are suitable for an A‑line outfit and ball gowns;
- four or five rings — an option for ball gowns.
Crinoline on rigid mesh
Crinoline ring petticoats are considered the most classic, most popular and inexpensive. Their shape is characterized by rigidity, which is supported by rings placed one above the other. Such a petticoat can have one ring or as many as seven.
The advantage is that the bride will not feel tight around her legs, will be able to move freely and not get tangled in her skirt. Everything would be fine, if not for one but.
The meaning of petticoats with a train is the same as in the options discussed above. But here additional support for the cable is needed, which affects the cost. However, this can also be considered a disadvantage, since when sitting down or lifting the skirt, it can expose the petticoat.

This option does not compare with crinoline models, as its advantages speak for themselves:It is very difficult to find such a petticoat in free sale, because in most cases it is created by an individual order. This has its advantages, because you can take into account the length and model of the already chosen dress, the height of the bride and her figure.

- allow you to sit down freely and not worry about protruding rings, which simply do not exist here.
