Buy crinoline before or after fittings?

Recommended Posts

My dress needs a large crinoline under it - should I buy it before or after fittings? I didn't know if they fit the dress to me and the crinoline...or if I should buy a crinoline to fit my dress.

if youre going to have crinoline at all, you need to have it before. my alterations lady refused to do anything to my dress if i didnt have my undergarments or crinoline if i was using it.

BEFORE! my underskirt had to be taken up, or else it would have shown out from under the dress (i'm only 5'3".)

also, the dress wont lay right if you dont have it on, but plan on getting one later, when they alter it it will be totally different without the poof underneath.

Thanks ladies! I thought it was after so it's good to know that I should get on it. I was just looking at them online and they don't come in different 'heights'. Is that normal? I thought you would need to get one that's the right length. Or am I just looking at the wrong websites?

 

Also, I was planning on having her sew cups into the dress so I don't have to wear a bra - or anything else under the dress. I thought most people did this. Should I be looking at undergarments instead of getting it sewn in?

a lot of girls that have low-backed or corset have decided to go with cups, but if it's high backed, like shoulder blades, then i guess it depends on how big your girls are :) if you need a lot of support or boost, then you probably want a bridal bra. but if you are small and high, then cups are probably ok. i guess it depends on the support of your dress as well, loose or fitted.

 

oh, and some girls like cups only because it's not as hot in the sun and heat as a full length bridal bra would be.

I had cups sewn in but day of, I ended up using a strapless bra because I was scared of my girls being exposed. Thanks goodness I did.

oh you have to have it before any fittings, they will hem your dress too short if you don't have all the under layers on it.

lol...thanks for the picture Rachel! Pictures always work better for me. By the way, you look GORGEOUS!!! in that picture - bra and all.

 

Since my girls aren't tiny, maybe I'll start bra shopping.

 

My dress isn't getting hemmed at all, since I'm tall it works perfect. If anything, I would have them make it longer.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
