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 at 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!
TVM = TV Movie

|2007||WAITRESS -- Visible petticoats at the end.||KERI RUSSELL|
|2005||WALK THE LINE -- Some pretty 50s dresses...||REESE WITHERSPOON|
-- This cult film is set in the early 60's and features a few good scenes. The
best is when nice looking teenagers play strip poker and when the time comes to see the
girl's dress we see some lovely (full view) petticoats!
