I have recently learned there are three diffrent types of volumizing skirts. Petticoats, which are made of layers of fabric worn under skirts and dresses to add volume.
This is the style I want becuase it is soft, and ruffley! Next, there is Pettiskirts,which are not to be worn under dresses and skirts. But to be worn, as a skirt. It's not really my style, but it could work.
Last is a crinoline, which is made with tulle or net, This one is better for a more extreme volume, however if there isn't a layer of fabric in between your legs and the tulle it is scratchy.
Which style is your favorite?
