A picture may speak a thousand words, but when choosing a crinoline, measurements are the key factor for selection. KnotTheGroom.com has outlined a simple method to select the correct fullness for your wedding gown slip. Other factors, such as wedding dress fabric, a crinoline pre-built into your wedding gown, and your personal preference of how the dress should look also play a part in the final fullness that you select. Since heavy silks and satins may weigh down the slip, it may be necessary to order a fuller slip than what is normally recommended by the measurements. If you receive a slip that is too full, you are always able to cut out a layer of crinoline/netting to make it the perfect fullness for your dress. The following quick-measurement guide will help in the final selection of your wedding gown slip. If your wedding dress is in storage at a bridal shop, have your bridal consultant measure it for you. The correct selection of the crinoline slip is the most essential step to assure that the wedding slip will best embellish and highlight the key features of your bridal gown and achieve the effect that accentuates your total look.
