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--vis frou-frou

2001 THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN  (Set in the early Fifties, the scene is a dance.  Actual filming was done in New Zealand, using members of a swing dance club there.  Couple of very nice pettis to be seen.  Miss. Hathaway, alas, is more modest than the extras. Something that she's wearing shows, but I'm at a loss to characterize it.) -- Review by Lisa      Stills
1999  THE OTHER SISTER (Several flurries of bride's maid's petticoats at the end!!) JULIETTE LEWIS
1972 OUR MISS FRED (Danny LaRue is Britain's foremost female impersonators. It is WWII and [s]he is playing the female l
ead in the show and is mistaken for a real woman and therefore let free by the Germans. In order to escape back to England and not be shot as a spy, (he) must carry on the charade. His journey necessitates many disguises including a French maid.. At one point (s)he is trapped into appearing in a fashion show, with many changes of frocks. Many of the clothes (s)he wears would appeal to poufbunnies and petticoat fans. You don't really get to see the frilly pettis under his maid's outfit, but at one point he is trying to change out of a skirt suit and we see that (s)he is being very authentic in his disguise - he is wearing a lacy white slip. What's the betting he is also wearing the prettiest panties [s]he can find as well?)
