  • Tulle is a fine net that when used as wedding dress fabric, creates a very soft looking, full bouffant skirt.
  • Wedding dress designers most often use the ball gown style silhouette when designing bridal gowns using tulle fabric.
  • Tulle wedding gowns have many layers of tulle net. It usually has anywhere from 4 to 10 layers, sometimes more.
  • The more layers the gown has . . . the less you see of the underlining. This creates a cloud-like, soft, billowy, pouf skirted wedding gown.

Under the lining there usually is a petticoat of crinoline net built into the gown to make it stand out very full. Sometimes for a fuller look you might want to wear a separate petticoat slip.
