For a very long time women have been using petticoats as an important inner wear garment. A petticoat is used in different countries in various different shapes and ways. In the United Kingdom, the use of this garment is primarily with long skirts, and so the design and shape of the petticoat is according to that. In some countries where the fashions are different, the shape of the petticoat is also quite different. The stitching pattern, size and weight of the finished petticoat are different than that which is being used in the United Kingdom.
Online purchasing of the petticoats is now quite easy, and so you can now say goodbye to the old fashioned petticoat. The waist area of these petticoats is generally elasticated for a better fit and the rest of the petticoat is quite wide and made from mesh. These petticoats are not suitable to wear with really short skirts; they are for wearing with knee length dresses or longer to give them a feminine shape. If you are wearing a 50s style dress or vintage style summer dresses, then you can use this petticoat.
