Hoopskirt/Crinoline question.

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone here has made a boned hoopskirt/crinoline before?
Like the one here: http://gloomth.com/k27.html or here: http://www.fanplusfriend.com/servlet/the-2078/Gothic-Steampunk-Full-Birdcage/Detail
I want to make one but I'm unsure how long to make each length of the boning.
I ran a search on google and on here but I couldn't really find anything that answered my problem. Is there a particular calculation for it?
If it's any help, it will have 3 hoops and I have a 25 inch waist.
I've also posted to sew_loli but I thought I might have more luck here since I came across posts about them (just not about this particular thing).

Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks! :)
