|Little Girl’s Full Petticoat Slip|
Girls petticoats are some of our most beloved items at Sophias Style. We have so many gorgeous special occasion dresses, and petticoats just give them that extra bit of volume that really perfects the look.
I personally really love the toddler petticoats and infant petticoat, all the little Christmas and Easter dresses look so precious with the full skirts! My brother is getting married in three months, and I will definitely be getting a toddler petticoat from Sophias for the flower girl.
We have a variety of styles, include half slips, full slips, tea length and knee length. For younger girls, I recommend the full slip petticoats. The fabric is very soft and will help her stay comfortable in dresses that are made of stiffer fabrics. Older girls tend to prefer the half slips, because they work with every style of neckline.
Whatever the occasion, make sure you find the perfect slip or petticoat for her dress!
You know what word I never get to use? Bouffant. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever even said that word out loud, I only ever read it. According to Wikipedia it’s a hairstyle, “the bouffant was popular in Western culture in the 1960s, when it was created with the help of back-combing and large amounts of hair spray.” Wiki also says the the style is suspected to have originated in France, where it was developed because Marie Antoinette wanted her hair to look thicker. Fascinating. Girls bouffant slips are used for the purpose of making skirts look fuller. They have without a doubt been around longer than Marie Antoinette’s thin hair, so I kind of feel like the word “bouffant” should reference the slips before the hairdo.
Anyhow, enough rambling about word origins, the purpose of today’s blog is for me to remind you that you might want to get petticoat slips to go with all the pretty Christmas dresses you’ll be buying. Sophia’s Style dresses are made to be stunning as they are, but an extra fluffy skirt always looks extra adorable.
In other news, did you know that as of this week, Sophia’s Style is carrying a whole new line of absolutely gorgeous dresses by Sweetie Pie? Just look at how pretty these dresses are!
Remember when you went shopping with your mother for your very first bra? I do, and although she was mostly just humoring me at the time, I felt so special- because this was something that was just between us girls, and my dad and brother “wouldn’t understand.”
At Sophia’s Style, we have a great selection of girls undergarments, which of course includes girls bras. The great part about our store is that it’s online, so you can help her find undergarments for girls without any embarassment!
Even if she’s not quite old enough to be needing any bras just yet, we have adorable girls underwear and beautiful girls petticoat slips. If you’ve got any special occasions coming up, make sure you check to see if she’ll be needing a petticoat- they make dresses look so sweet!
Here’s a bit of trivia: petticoats have been around since before the year 1585! Do you know what that means? It means they work. What else do we still use from the 1500’s? Fire? The wheel? I have another interesting fact: petticoats weren’t used at all during and for awhile after WWII, due to rationing, but they were brought back in 1947 by Christian Dior‘s New Look.
So there you have it, petticoats are tried and true, and most importantly, endorsed by Christian Dior. If you’ve got a wedding, pageant, or any kind of special occasion coming up and you want to get her ball gown silhouette just right, head over to Sophia’s Style and check out our girls petticoat slips, girls slips, and flower girl petticoat slips.
