Dressing vintage means owning petticoats, especially to achieve the 50s silhouette. Puffy slips are feminine, whimsical, and can help keep you warm on a cool day. Crinoline slips are popular, but after owning a few over the course of some years, I feel they loose luster. My preferred slips at the moment are nylon with many layers and a pretty show. My favorite petticoat maker is Malco Modes . This family owned business has been around since 1932 and is still making their slips in the USA! Not everyone can afford Malco Modes, especially for the one-off color slips some gals seek to match a dress. Many other-branded slips are made in China and some even charge as much as Malco. I have made such purchases and feel taken to have paid the same price for lesser quality. Whatever your budget, volumize your wardrobe! Ebay is a great place to find a bargain if that is what you seek. The difference made in your look, whether twirling about the dance floor or striking a pose at the car show, is impeccable.
