Hoop skirt or Petticoat
So I'm making my Christmas list, and being the strange person that I am, I want to ask for a hoop skirt/petticoat/something that will give me poof for ball gowns. The problem is, I have no idea which is better: a petticoat or a hoop skirt. In my head, I always favored petticoats because I thought it wouldn't be so stiff/would be more flowy than a hoop skirt, but now I don't know. Which is better, just in general?
