Petticoats let you take any skirt or dress and make it a bit wilder and more fun. Petticoats are pretty and also functional. Layers of tulle and ruffles add fluff and fill to skirts and dresses by giving them support. Petticoats are elegant and fun to wear with other lingerie sets as well adding to the romantic appeal of your evening collections. Petticoats can be short to help fluff out the mini-skirts of costumes or just casual skirts. Longer petticoats can help give form to longer skirts and dresses helping to create a fuller design reminiscent of dresses of the Fifties. Adding a petticoat to your costume or casual dress can give you a fun way to add an extra element of surprise to any outfit.
