Crinolines on The Tube
Pictures here may be enlargeable
notice: These productions 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 productions which feature classic crinolines and petticoat as well. You might
also review the corsetfilm list located at here.
Many of the corset-era productions show gowns and petticoats as well!

popular German folkmusic act. The picture on the right is from a
program in 1990s. They don't dress quite so nicely these days, especially
when they on mainstream programs. There are dozens of regular "Volksmusik
and pretty petticoats on German
television. They used to be better a few years ago but there are plenty of
repeats of old shows and programs that show clips of old shows when the
costume were more "petticoatful".

Latin films on Television
A few years ago, Tessy received a video from an avid Pond fan with many excerpts of Latin films on it, mostly Mexican. In one case, the film portrayed a happy summer party with a myriad of 50s-styled petti-ed dresses on a myriad of pretty girls. Shelley was kind enough to render some frames for our enjoyment. With that, we present them to you! Wish we knew the title!
From a visitor: "On YouTube I discovered the Mexican telenovela Amor Real. The background of the series are the Mexican revolutionary uprisings in the 1860`s and, of course, many elaborate crinoline dresses are shown. I picked up a scene, when the heroine is getting dressed with a corset and a simplified crinoline-petticoat. Watch:Amor Real Cap 26 (4/4), Start at 4:32. Maybe there are more eye-catching moments."

"One of the
contestant's on the [19 Nov] programme was wearing a pink fluffy
petticoat under her skirt that was constantly showing below the hem by a
couple of inches. Naturally a totally delightful programme to watch
simply because of that. The first part of the programme shows the
