Petticoating[edit]

Whoa, whoa. You've taken a 2 page article about an item, and expanded it by 300% to 8 pages to include an elaborate discussion of a marginal behavioral matter, to bordering on a fetishistic fascination. This is not the way to resolve your problems with Petticoating. Please consider other options. (for background see Talk:Petticoat Discipline and Talk:Petticoat Punishment and ...)

Petticoat pictures[edit]

The illustrations in this article don't really make it clear which bits are the "skirt" and which bits are the "petticoat", since all of the women in the pictures are wearing both. Are there any pictures available of just a petticoat? One hanging up and not being used would be fine, I'm just still a little confused about what it consists of.

This concern has, hopefully, been resolved with the inclusion of a color photograph of a typical crinoline petticoat manufactured by Malco Modes of San Francisco. This is the type of petticoat that was very popular in the 1950s because it was relatively inexpensive and was available in a variety of colors. The length is correct for the 1950s: mid-calf. Shorter versions have been manufactured for use in square dancing. One woman who wore petticoats years ago said they typically wore three single crinoline petticoats during the 1950s, until manufacturers began manufacturing double or triple layer petticoats. They also usually wore a narrow slip under the petticoats because the crinolines were scratchy and, when they danced, the petticoats and dress would fly up and reveal their girdles or garter belts. Dancers in movies of the time, such as Cyd Charisse, avoided this by wearing tights under their dresses.Sallyrob 17:29, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

The color photograph of Amy Sedaris on the David Letterman Show gives a very good idea of what multiple petticoats looked like when worn with a full skirt. Whenever girls or women sat down, their skirt and petticoats would billow like this. Amy is clearly wearing two different types of petticoats, too, which was a common practice in the 1950s and 1960s. Some girls would wear as many petticoats as they could fit under their skirt to create the fullest look possible. Sallyrob 12:47, 21 December 2006 (UTC)


NPOV[edit]

There is some NPOV in this article. Namely "However, there are women (and cross-dressing men) who still like the feminine, sexy look of a dress or skirt with petticoats, as well as the use of corsets, girdles, or garter belts with nylon stockings instead of pantyhose. When comedian Amy Sedaris appears on television wearing a 1950s gown with multiple petticoats, there are many who wish that others would follow her example." I edited it. 68.229.56.8 13:05, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Problems with references[edit]

The references are often vague. For example, a reference to You Tube that doesn't give the specific site where the video may be seen isn't much good, and makes me wonder whether the source really exists. 71.142.75.20 18:39, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Why is "Jupon" redirecting here?[edit]

A jupon is a late development of the medieval surcoat, a short outer garment worn over armour in 14th and 15th century Europe, as detailed in the article on surcoat. Why is "Jupon" therefore redirecting here? The word "jupon" does not appear in this article. 71.200.89.119 (talk) 14:35, 10 January 2011 (UTC) [edit]Never mind, I figured out how to reach the redirect page and re-redirect it to the article on surcoat. 71.200.89.119 (talk) 14:38, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Etymology???[edit]

The most basic info is missing: What is the WORD "petticoat" derived from, where and when was it first used/recorded? ChrisZ78 (talk) 20:21, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
