* Banned Lifeforms 26" Petticoat in Emerald *
I recently purchased the Banned Lifeforms 26” petticoat in Emerald. I’m wearing the XL/2XL and found it true to the chart. I have never been a big petticoat wearer, finding them itchy on my sensitive skin, but I’d heard wonderful things about the Banned ones, so I thought I’d take a chance.
I was utterly blown away with how soft and gorgeous they are, while still remaining full and fluffy. This petticoat also has an adjustable waist, so it can be adjusted during weight fluctuations, or differences in waist size when wearing corsetry.
I absolutely love that the Lifeforms petticoat is fully lined- something I haven’t seen before- as it keeps the look modest when you’re twirling away on the dance floor, or get caught in a gusty wind. It also provides extra comfort.
I do think the 26” is a little long for me, as I’m only 5’2”, and I wore it above my natural waist so it would sit at the right length, but I don’t feel it was noticeable.
I wore this petticoat all day, running errands, having lunch, working, and didn’t find it uncomfortable or scratchy at all. I would definitely recommend investing in a Banned Lifeforms petticoat to take your dresses and skirts to the next level.
