The petticoat has been in fashion for many years, if you want to know how it all started see our information below.
The petticoat refers to any seperate skirt worn with a gown.
These petticoats are not strictly speaking underwear as they
were made to be seen! The practice of wearing petticoats as
undergarments was established by 1585. For the first two
decades of the twentieth century, multiple petticoats fell out
of fashion.Petticoats were revived by Christian Dior in his
full-skirted New Look of 1947. A feminent shaped silhoutte
with wide circle skirts and petticoats. Recovering from
catastrophic tragedies related to the second World War
, the 1950's brought restored hope; a chance for a new
way of lise whose destiny would be decided by them alone.
The pettiskirt was a big hit in the 50's
Women especially dramatically altered the way they dressed and presented themselves; during the evolution of an increasingly liberated society, women began to favor casual, relaxed clothing over traditional dress rules and associated formality of previous decades. Some of the most admired new trends for women in the 1950's included button-up sweaters with simple necklines, fitted blouses, and full knee-length skirts. However, the most prevalent fashion for women during this time was dresses. Most dresses were worn casually, and were accentuated with circle skirts, halter straps, or small collars. Evening wear dresses seemed soft yet daring, coming in many pastel hues and accompanied with bold ruffles, tulle trim, and dazzling velvet bows. The fitted evening wear of this period, which was usually sleeveless or strapless, was also emphasized with sheer silk.
Growing increasingly popular, the full skirts of the 1950's needed
some sort of support in order to maximize their look. To address
this problem, Nylon petticoats were created exclusively to be worn
in conjunction with full skirts to create fullness. Nylon was a favorable
material because of its high quality and easy care wash. This fullness
it created transformed the skirt who gave nothing more than a gentle
swish, into a glamorous royal-like flutter.
