See-through dresses, popular for a while during The Era, allowed the onlooker to see most of the full-bodiced petticoat underneath.  This was of great comfort to said onlookers, including Tessy and a myriad of otherPoufies...what a great fashion!  The image on the left is definitively from 1958.  The right is 'first day of school,' 1960.
