Petticoats and Crinolines in Films


UPDATE SOURCES TEXT EMAIL FEATURES HOME CHAT BULLETIN IMAGES GROUPS BOOKS PINUPS ADS

Please take notice: These films mostly contain lovely visions of bouffant skirts, particularly of the 50's style, and MIGHT show peeks of petticoats. Very few show full petti-views (these will be noted). We are also now adding films which feature classic crinolines and petticoat as well. You might also review the corsetfilm list located here.

Many of the corset-era productions show gowns and petticoats as well!

Any rating comments obviously refer to the quality of the film vis-à-vis frou-frou

1958 CAREER --  There are a couple of scenes which feature a lovely woman wearing a beautiful full dress and she models her frock while standing in a sexy manner at the bedroom door. Real cute! Later she is seen seated in a chair and Ms. MacLaine taps her several times on her wonderfully noisy skirt, as does her husband, played by Tony Franciosa. SHIRLEY MacLAINE
1989 CATCH ME IF YOU CAN -- Poodle skirt with pettis. LORYN LOCKLIN
2003 THE CAT IN THE HAT -- Plenty of youth petti and adult bouffant here! DAKOTA FANNING
1958 CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF -- Although best known for Ms. Taylor's slip, this movie boasts a scene featuring a group of little girls at a birthday party, all of whom are wearing delicious little girl party frocks. One scene features one of the young girls in a bedroom scene with Taylor, and we get a wonderful shot of the girl's yellow frock and white petticoat as she bends over to pick something up off the floor! Very scenic!    LIZ TAYLOR

2004 A CINDERELLA STORY -- Some great shots of Ms. Duff in a huge ball gown and another shot of her in the crinolines, less the gown. 

1960
CINDERFELLA -- The well-known Cinderella story (w/ Jerry Lewis) with the sexes swooped over. There is a Princess Charming and a Fairy Godfather. The film story is pretty abysmal, but the last half-hour in particular, has some really very bouffant dresses, and some low view-point shots. The ending thus redeems the general tedium of the earlier part of the film. Review by Janet

Joe A.: "The film is very good quality - Miss Bardot, besides looking stunningly beautiful is, for most of the film, dressed en bouffant in a green gingham full skirt with a white nylon cancan petticoat beneath. There are many low level camera shots, and some great dance sequences where Miss Bardot beautifully displays her petticoats. The story is also entertaining!."

COPPER -- TVS -- In this series we can find a lot of very fine dresses of the 1860's era.  Also there is, especially, a gorgeous dressing sequence with a cage crinoline and a splendid lace and ruffles petticoat, combined with a fine ball gown at the end of sequel ten.       
Review and stillclips by Ralf S. 
1994 CORRINA, CORRINA -- A glimpse of a little girl's pettis under her dress as she sits on the stoop toward the end.  Nothing major, except some 50s bouffant on adults. Another favorite scene is of the girls jumping rope in full skirts. JENNIFER LEWIS

1990 CRY-BABY -- This wonderful film is peppered throughout with nice shots of Ms. Locane in full skirts. Just too many to itemize.  Watch the motorcycle departure scene. AMY LOCANE
1979 CUBA -- Sean Connery and Ms. Adams are lovers in this virtual remake of "Casablanca" set in 1958 during the Cuban revolution. There are numerous glimpses of typical late fifties gowns, and one young lady gives a full view of her white, crinoline petticoats as she dresses after seducing and killing one hapless man.
Review by Rhonda Risque
BROOKE ADAMS
1987 CYNDI LAUPER IN PARIS (Concert) -- Ms. Lauper performed in Paris whilst wearing the cutest, shortie dress and petticoat. Typical petticoat of the New Wave era.   CYNDI LAUPER
