Granted no one will see these Petticoats or Half Slips but that doesn’t make them less important!
There is nothing like the sensation of a petticoat against your body to make you feel all dressed up. A petticoat is a skirt like garment that can be worn under either a German dress, a Dirndl or a Trachten skirt. The folds and pleats of this garment tend to provide a good foundation for the outer skirt giving you a more feminine silhouette.
A petticoat is also known as a half slip because unlike a full slip that starts at your shoulders this item of clothing begins at the waist and falls down to either just above your knees or to just above your ankles. Other names for this type of clothing is an underskirt or a waist slip.
We carry both long and short half slips ranging from size 2 to size 22. They are made of high quality materials and are sure to be a great addition to every woman’s wardrobe.
While these petticoats are supposed to be mostly functional they are also quite pretty. With the different layers of material gathered and pleated they tend to give you the feel of a ballerina when you have one on. In fact you may find that your daughters or your granddaughters will be raiding your closets to play dress up in these beauties.
Back in the Victorian times petticoats were quite cumbersome with hundreds of layers of material making the garment uncomfortable and annoying to wear however you won’t find that to be true with these petticoats. Our Petticoats or half slips offer just the right amount of “oomph” with none of the bother of the fuller versions.
I recommend that you buy two today! One long and one short so that you will have a petticoat for every occasion in your life!
