About Tulle Petticoats
Petti is as petti does — with tulle petticoats featuring beautiful cascading skirts, you can show off all of your good sides when wearing dresses and skirts with a bold new look. Petticoats date back to the late 1500s when women wore them beneath long gowns to create a fashionable, curving feminine shape. Petticoats extend from the waist in a dome shape, giving the illusion of a thin waist and longer legs. Then, women wore petticoats over thin gowns and long looping overskirts. Today, tulle petticoats serve the same function and give you a flattering waistline and add dimension and depth to your long skirts and dresses, fanning elegantly out from the hip to the floor. These petticoats feature soft and comfortable elastic waistbands, making them easy to pull on. Zippers or small clasps in the back let you close them firmly, ensuring a snug fit. Layered tulle petticoats feature soft and pillowy layers of mesh or fine silk, extending from waistbands deriving from cotton and polyester. They come with extra layers of thick fabric or thin wires, which appear in cascading hoops throughout the length of the petticoat, helping them retain a round shape. You can look for these wardrobe essentials on eBay, where a large inventory gives you many options to explore.
