Youth Section - see through dresses

Fashions of The Fifties and Later
Youth Section
See through bodice/skirt Era fad


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.




Here is an (unfortunately) small picture of a typical little girl dress from 1958.  Only this one is interesting, in that the petticoat is apparent through the transparent material of the dress, and, of course, shows en frou frou as well. Technical Producer Crinolyn has blown up the image as best as she could - click on picture.



Above right: 1956
