The shape of the dress/ figure you want should be the first thing considered when looking for a petticoat, the amount of pouf second. I agree mostly with what was already said- organdy (not chiffon, they look the same but chiffon is soft while organdy is stiff) hold it's stiffness better than tulle but both can be starched & re-poufed with some time invested. Hanging them where they won't get crushed when not in use it the best way to have a petticoat last a long time.
