"Here's a great Tumblr blog for fans of The Bouffant. 
Many of the images link to the Japanese manufacturers...

 blog without joining it or going through their 'dashboard' [machinations]."

Dior - 1957

Designer area


 

This picture demonstrates that a simple outfit, which could be seen commonly in The Era,
could easily be accepted today.  So why are day-to-day women reticent to wear such?

From John N.

 


Here we have rarely seen
tight layers - delightful!

From Kristi


Sometimes the skirt lays SO nicely over the hoop - many times this 
due to the existence of a ruffled petticoat between the hoop and the skirt...
