Petticoat: History, Styling, Care

Clothing and Accessories

Anne who thinks the petticoat is a limited to the fashionable meaningless relic from another era, is on the wrong track: because there are only a few items of clothing which have managed to influence the culture of an entire decade.

In addition to the pair of blue jeans, petticoat is the symbol of the 50s. His influence on the society is clear, inter alia on the film titles of that era. Would have to call “the guns of Fort petticoat” from 1957 or “the iron petticoat” (1956) with the incredible Katherine Hepburn. Unforgettable is also “Operation Petticoat” from the year 1959 with the charismatic Gary grant and women’s favourite Tony Curtis.

History Of The Petticoat

The petticoat itself can look back on a long history. As early as the end of the 16th century the first petticoats were worn. You made the frames from fish legs, wood or metal. Not for nothing, the Spanish version Verdugado, which translates to as much as “Guardians of virtue” said means. On the Spanish Court the petticoats disappeared at the end of the 17th century back out of fashion before they appeared a few decades later.

Different variants of the Reifrockes were held during the 18th century: the bread (French for basket), produced also usually made of wood or whalebone, 1715 came about and was replaced mid of century by the spring skirt and the so-called pals, pockets on the hips. Still later, around the French Revolution, was the motto for the former fashion: “Back to nature”. The ladies of the aristocracy showed your class affiliation, by they wore heavy satin and silk fabrics with several cloth petticoats. Women of lower social strata were content with wearing several petticoats.

Only in the 19th century the tiered skirt became popular again and this time became the crinoline in appearance. The crinoline was originally made with horsehair, which served to strengthen the substance. However more diffused on the Crinolines made of spring steel bands. They were simply cheaper in manufacturing.
Half frames in fashion, which bolstered only the rear portion of the dress came to 1870.These so-called Tornüren disappeared but at the end of the century back from women’s fashion. The crinoline was from now on, apart from a brief interlude of war crinoline, only on wedding dresses and costumes.

Mid-20th century, 1947, fashion designer Christian Dior helped the petticoat with his “calyx”line to watch. After the deprivation of the war years, the new femininity in scene should be used. The “petit” “coat”, the “small cloak” helped to make the waist women’s feminine look narrower and hips.
The Petticoats of the Rock ‘n Roll era consisted of nylon or nylon materials, which were up to a smooth saddle and processed for bouffant-wide ruffle levels below. This form gave the desired hourglass look of the female figure and stood almost every woman – what was certainly a reason for his high popularity.
Of course you can also with us in the shop buy petticoat, that range is expanding steadily.

Young Girls Or Even Grown Women?

Undeniably, petticoat makes a fabulous figure. It conceals and emphasised the right places. The question should therefore not be whether or who can wear the petticoat at the present time, but how it is worn. Namely confident. It must not be substance equal to three or four layers. The petticoat will be suitable for everyday use when you’re wearing it as a double layer, then he seems also not to loft and you can still comfortable to sit.

Also the issue hotly debated in the 50s, whether a petticoat underneath the upper dress may outburst or not, today no longer so strictly speaking. Some specimens of lace, it would be almost a shame, if they not every now and then, for example, would outburst with a twisting motion.

Care And Storage

In the 50s and 60s used sugar water, to get the shape of the petticoats. Today, there are the appropriate finish, so that the piece retains his sack after washing.
In the care of petticoats to depends on the material: nylon, for example do not too hot wash and should not dry in the Sun – white fabrics are otherwise yellow. Keep should be his prom on a strap or in a bag.
