Ladies Undergarments

A note about Hoops: No standard hoop will be the right length for every one. If the hoop slip is too long for you you can make horizontal tucks to shorten it. Use one of more tucks to adjust to the length you need.

In general, for a small skirt the circumference of the skirt bottom should be about 50% of your height. For a large skirt the circumference of the skirt bottom should be about 70% of your height.
