Wedding puffy dress

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. Wedding dress with hem Ani Lorak
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?

It is so ben­e­fi­cial to empha­size the fea­tures of the style of the dress you have cho­sen, like a pet­ti­coat, it is impos­si­ble in any oth­er way. The skirt is grace­ful­ly designed, lush and com­plete. The bride in this image has a stun­ning look.

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 price is not great, that’s just the view is unaes­thet­ic. The pet­ti­coat with crino­line rings ris­es slight­ly when mov­ing, and if the skirt of the wed­ding dress con­sists of thin fab­ric, then its frame is vis­i­ble. There­fore, it is suit­able for skirts made of dense mat­ter, for exam­ple, satin and mod­els with a train. Met­al rings are the best way to pro­vide the nec­es­sary sup­port.

With train

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.

Petticoats without rings

In terms of beau­ty, showi­ness and high cost, mul­ti­lay­er pet­ti­coats win, in the design of which there is no hint of rings. This option does not com­pare with crino­line mod­els, as its advan­tages speak for them­selves:
    • lay down beau­ti­ful­ly;
    • are not vis­i­ble through the fab­ric of the skirt;
    • are not translu­cent even through very thin fab­ric;
    • look spec­tac­u­lar with any move­ment of the bride;
    • allow you to sit down freely and not wor­ry about pro­trud­ing rings, which sim­ply do not exist here.
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. Puffy wedding dress with layered petticoat

Idea for petticoats without rings

It is for­bid­den to show the crino­line on the rings — this is a sign of bad taste and even bad taste. After all, you don’t want to show your under­wear to any­one, so why should every­one see your pet­ti­coat?

How to fold a wedding petticoat?

So, the pet­ti­coat was cho­sen cor­rect­ly, the wed­ding has already passed and the brides face a log­i­cal and expect­ed ques­tion — how can and should the naughty ele­ment of the image be fold­ed. Here, in fact, every­thing is sim­ple — the rings are stacked on top of each oth­er and fold­ed in such a way that the num­ber eight is obtained. After that, we unfold the struc­ture with the reverse side and apply two of our new rings to each oth­er. We place the fold­ed pet­ti­coat in a spe­cial bag and store it in a seclud­ed place.


Most like­ly, you will buy a wed­ding dress with­out a pet­ti­coat. So leave an amount in your wed­ding bud­get for the pur­chase of this impor­tant item. The price can be very dif­fer­ent. It all depends on the type of pet­ti­coat, the lev­el of splen­dor and the mate­r­i­al used. If your dress is expen­sive, don’t ruin it with a cheap pet­ti­coat.
