Petticoats


Petticoats have been worn for hundreds of years, yet they really hit their heyday in 1950s American fashion. Christian Dior revived the full-volume underskirt in 1947, and the look just kept on growing, literally, from there. Flouncy, fun and full of vim and vigor, Unique Vintage keeps petticoats in the mainstream of the most fashionable closets by creating a collection of our own.

Before you dive into the adorable underskirts, a few tips can help you pick the one that best suits your usage and style. Take heed of what kind of skirt you plan to wear atop the petticoat, as heavier fabrics will need a stronger base to fluff them up. Crinoline is a good pick for a solid foundation. You can also layer petticoats if you’re looking to add over-the-top flounce beneath your swing skirt or evening dress.

The length of the petticoat is another consideration. Do you want the edges to show or not? Keep in mind you can always roll the waistband to make the undergarment a bit shorter, but you always want to roll the waistband inward so you don’t overstretch the elastic. You also want to make sure the top of the petticoat is not visible. That’s just tacky.

Wearing a petticoat takes a bit of practice, but, darling, we know you’ve got what it takes! Be careful taking the undergarment on and off. Take your shoes off first so they don’t catch on the thinner fabric. Fluff it up to the sides when it’s time for a bathroom break. Shake it upside down, and inside out, before and after wearing. This helps to keep the fluff factor going for the long haul.

Store your petticoat on a hanger, hanging inside out, which also helps to retain the volume. Never store your crinoline in a drawer, where it will only get squashed and flattened. Keep in mind that petticoats can take up a bit of space, both in the closet and when you’re riding the bus or sitting in crowded spaces. Give it plenty of room to breathe.

One final fashion tip is to have fun. Petticoats by their very nature are tons of fun, and our vintage options increase the glee exponentially. Add a layer of bounce, flounce and fabulousness to your outfit. Shop Unique Vintage petticoats now.
