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 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-ŕ-vis frou-frou

If you think something is missing -- tell us!

TVM = TV Movie

1964
WHAT A WAY TO GO! (Aside from typical 50s pettis, there are some very unusual gowns, notably
a red "Oriental" number with tight, long lower skirt and extreme balloon-like upper skirt, and another - a front split floor length gown which, when pushed aside, contains crinies. Also, some wide peplum and short hoop outfits--worth a viewing!)      Video stream     #2
