Petticoats and Crinolines in Films
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
