Today, most repro and vintage inspired dresses and skirts don’t need many petticoats. One thin crinoline slip will add enough volume to still be modern, while larger full petticoats will create a more dramatic 1950s rockabilly style. Naturally, it is fun to wear a crinoline skirt in a unique color under your dress as well as ruffled pettipants or bloomers.
The crinoline skirt length can vary from tea length’s mid shin, to at the knee (most common), to above the knee (seen in the ’60s). Some of the softest repro petticoats and crinolines brands are Malco Modes and Banned.
