Canvas Underskirt in Black

Availability: In stock

$56.00
This innovative underskirt was inspired by the underpinnings that Dior designed in the 40s and 50s. Its two layers of canvas are designed to make your skirts full yet remain flat around the tummy area for girls who don't want the look of crinolines, petticoats, or overly full skirts. It has an elastic waist band that is designed to nip in your waist and two snaps which go in the front. Because of the stiffness of the canvas, this can be worn to provide hip fullness on any length skirt.

A nice idea, excellent construction, but not always functionalReview by AJ

I originally ordered this underskirt based on the size chart (that appears to still be in use) where it says a 35" waist requires a 2XL. Seemed a bit off, but okay. When I received the item, it was as I expected--- massive on me. I had to exchange it and I informed PUG of the size chart issue.

When I got my correct size, I found that it does not fill out as well as pictured. The description notes that it's for hip fullness and is flat around the tummy, which I found to not be very true. It added puff in a lumpy manner which makes me appear to have a muffintop, and defeated the purpose of switching out a crinoline or petticoat for this. I was only able to disguise this with a wide cinch belt. I will try washing it a few times to see if I can even this out.

That said, the quality of this piece is very high. The elastic used for the waist is very good, and I trust the two snaps used to close it. The construction is excellent and I only wish it worked with my skirts and dresses better. I will cross my fingers and hope for it to work better after washing. (Posted on 4/13/2016)

I have a 30" waist with 43" hips, so I don't need too much help getting the hourglass effect ;) That said, I've found a few of the dresses and skirts (especially the Ella dress and Snow White Jenny) somehow make my hips look tiny (I don't know what sorcery is at work here). The canvas underskirt is wonderful under these items, giving beautiful shape without too much bulk - and no need to worry about the length of the skirt as this won't show, or cause a waterfall effect. It washes very well and the elastic waist means it'll stay comfortable throughout the day. I was able to wear it during summer here in Australia without overheating and I love it so much, I have it in black and white! (Posted on 4/6/2016)
