Pettipants - frills and ruffles
If you like feminine frilly garments such as petticoats, then you’re going to love pettipants. These are a kind of modest lingerie that used to be worn under the petticoat when it was fashionable. Pettipants also have layers of ruffles, making them the perfect addition to the petticoat and also adding even more pretty frills and ruffles to the whole outfit. You can buy pettipants in most shops that also supply the petticoat at very affordable prices. These are dance wear stores (especially square dance) and also cross dress shops sometimes have pettipants because they’re a beautiful accessory to the sissy dress.
Types of Pettipants
The defining feature of pettipants are the ruffles. They’re normally made of softer fabrics like satin and nylon. Pettipants also come in any length from the size of shorts all the way down to almost the ankles. Those long pettipants are also sometimes called bloomers or sissy pettipants. Now I wonder where the latter name comes from ;). Even the very long ones have ruffles that go all the way down to the bottom which makes for a cute and pretty sight. So pettipants are generally more concealing than panties which is why they’re considered modest by me at least.
The colors are usually white or pink so if you want other colors they might be harder to find in some shops. I suppose white and pink are just more suited for the character of these kind of panties.
Pettipants in Today’s Fashion
Well they’re really something from the past I’m afraid. I think the only people who might wear them today are square dancers and cross dressers. Isn’t it a shame how modern fashion has kind of moved away from frills of that kind. I guess I wouldn’t wear them either so who am I to talk? But I do hope we might one day see a revival of the petticoat style along with the matching panties.
Crossdressing and Pettipants
They can be very popular with cross dressers, which is why you’re probably going to find more of them in a crossdressing shop than in a regular dance wear shop. I’m not sure what exactly the appeal is given that you already have a frilly petticoat over the top. I can only say what I really like about them and that is that they express a very innocent and modest kind of femininity which is so beautiful to see in men.

If you like pettipants as a cross dresser then please let us know what in particular you like about them. Is it the material itself or perhaps the ruffles? I’m always curious to know more about the ins and outs of peoples’ minds – especially crossdressers.
