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 corset film 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

If you think something is missing -- tell us!

1955 FEMALE ON THE BEACH --Watch the froufrou as Jeff Chandler chases her down the terrace steps to the beach and she falls before him! My! JOAN CRAWFORD 
1975 FEMALE TROUBLE -- Ms Stole plays a retarded girl (grown adult, really) who dresses in little girl dresses. She's not outwardly retarded, so I don't know what the deal is there. She wears one really cute frilly number in the film that had my heart racing! The dress was fifties vintage and was made of stiff organdy; although she had no petticoat on underneath, the illusion that there was one was "palpable". Worth it just to see a couple of scenes where she wears little girl fashions.  TAFFY DAVENPORT
