Whether it’s a ‘50s inspired dress or a flirty poodle skirt, a vintage petticoat helps add some flair and va-va-voom to your retro looks. The primary reason ladies often wore petticoats throughout history was to add some structure and volume, hence the reason why many of them featured hoops or boning. In fact, some of the earliest petticoat structures were made of whalebone! But don’t worry, no animals were harmed in the making of our vintage-inspired petticoats.
While these undergarments have been worn for hundreds of years, we’re pretty keen on the way they were sported in 1950s America. Fashion king Christian Dior revived the full-volume underskirt in 1947 with the debut of his “New Look.” After that, petticoats dominated the fashion scene, and were even sold in some stores until the 1970s. Obviously, we’re all about repurposing our favorite retro fashions to help you put together looks that are over-the-top fabulous, which is why we’ve made a collection of our own!
