Four easy steps! That's all it takes to choose the right bridal petticoat for your dress. It's all about the measurement. The following easy and quick guide will help in the final selection of your wedding gown slip.
1.Decide what type of petticoat or hoop will work best with your dress.
If your gown already comes a crinoline built into your dress you may only need a hoop to help push out the botton. If your gown does not have a crinoline, you will need a petticoat with a few layers of material to make your dress look its best.
2.Measure your Dress
Measure the circumference of the gown hem from side seam to side seam at the bottom, following the curve. Do this with a measuring tape.
3.Double this measurement
Your measurement is the circumference of the gown. Double it For example: if the measurement you have taken is 85 inches, then your circumference is 85*2, or 170inches.
4.Compare to the slip Fullness Guide
Compare your dress measurement to the Slip Fullness Guide. The numbers represent a range. It's important not to get a bridal petticoat fuller then your wedding dress, unless, and only unless, the weight of your dress material is very heavy.
Example: Dress Measurement: 170" inches Recommended Slip Fullness: VERY FULL.
