We have a fantastic range of wedding dress underskirts in various circumferences to match almost any size of wedding gown. Depending on the shape of your dress, you can choose between our mermaid and A-line silhouettes, and then decide how full you'd like it.
Understanding Underskirt Hoop Sizes
Our standard length underskirts have hoop sizes ranging from 190cm all the way up to 370cm. The different hoop circumferences dictate the overall size of the circle around your feet, and in turn how full they will make your dress look.
Which Underskirt Is Right For My Dress Shape?
It’s hard to advise without a picture of the dress to look at, but here’s a rough guide:
Underskirts for completely straight column or sheath dresses, or dresses that are quite figure-hugging and slinky without any netting sewn into them — For this we would suggest no underskirt. Let your dress drape naturally.
Underskirts for ballgown style dresses with long, wide trains — A-line shape from 270cm all the way up to 370cm. You can choose your own fullness level but most brides stick to the lower end, especially when their dress has many layers of netting shaping it out already. Try our ball gown petticoat BP1-270 – Elasticated 270cm (106 inch) A-line bridal underskirt with two hoops and see if you need anything more.
The most popular hoop sizes are definitely at the narrower end of the scale — the 190cm and 220cm hoops sizes sell much more than the larger sizes. This is likely due to the current dress trends and the shapes they require.
Do I Need An Underskirt For My Wedding Dress?
Bridal underskirts, aside from shaping out your dress, also free up some much-needed walking space for your feet! With the exception of brides with column/sheath dresses as mentioned above, pretty much every bride will need an underskirt to help them walk gracefully down the aisle.
Which size Underskirt should I choose?
Our underskirts all have Lycra waists so are able to accommodate for a size up or down your standard dress size. here is a handy size chart to help you:
