This version of the long crinoline underskirt is based on originals from the victorian era - that means it is perfect to support your historical gowns and skirts, especially for periods around the 1860's - the era of the american civil war, "Gone with the Winds", "Sissi" and many more - and it also supports any modern type of dress that should follow a bell shape, and not the common A-silhouette, e.g. your bridal gown or gothic robe.
This special hoop skirt is designed to be worn under a dress, if you are searching for a cage skirt without a solid part at the bottom - e.g. to wear with a sheer skirt or solo - have a look at our shop! We offer full cage skirts in long and short versions (with 3 hoops) as well!
The crinoline consists of a solid part at the bottom that holds two steel hoops, both 300cm/ 118inch wide. This does not only prevent you from stepping between two hoops and get tangled up, it also makes the bottom part stronger!
The cage part has 6 more hoops that fit perfectly together, they form a beautiful bell shape that is typical for the crinoline era. This makes overall 8 hoops to support your gown.
For the hoops, we use only solid 13mm wide flat steels from a well-known german supplier - these are suitable for heavy skirts as well and won't bend or break.
Like already mentioned, we make this skirt to order - and to your personal measurements - please choose your waist circumference and preferred length from the menu!
The length refers to you leg length, NOT the skirt length! We advice to choose this length 10cm/ 4inch shorter than floor length. If you have any questions regarding this - feel free to ask! We're glad to help! If you already have a gown to go with and need the crinoline to match the skirt length - drop us a note.
If you need other measurements than listed - you can write us as well! We can make almost all sizes - prices may vary in that case!
Other colours are possible as well.
We also offer the matching petticoat for this crinoline - you can find it in our shop, in "Historical Clothes" - you can see it there, pictured over the cage crinoline.
We ship this hoop skirt unassembled, which means - the hoops are separate and you have to insert them yourself. You will recieve instructions for that.
A fully assembled hoop skirt would be too big to put it in a box securely :) .
And - you can always remove the hoops yourself again for storage and transport.

Absolutely amazing! I ordered a skirt cage to go under my wedding dress. And it’s better than what I wanted! Totally worth the price and such amazing quality! It fits me perfectly, and I am so happy with the results!
Very nice quality. It looks wonderful under my historical dresses. Easy to move in for dancing. My only suggestion is that to make it easier for assembly the metal support strips should be numbered from top to bottom .
The colour was gorgeous, and it can support both my skirt and petticoats. This was exactly what I needed and wanted, thank you!
its nice and flexible, letting me sit without my skirts flipping up, while also remaining stiff enough to hold the shape plus skirts. Its perfect!
