Malco Modes 580 Petticoat/ Promenade Dance Shop Review 
18th-Jul-2011 08:17 pm


Hello everyone! Today I'm reviewing a malco modes 580 petticoat, as well as the company I bought it from Promenade Dance Shop. There doesn't seem to be much on 580 on egl, the 582 is more popular I guess. I'm hoping this review will help people make an educated decision, unlike me who bought blind XD

The petticoat itself feels wonderful. Light and fluffy like sitting on a marshmallow! I bought the small, as I wanted a longer petticoat. If you would like a more cupcake/traditional Lolita shape I would go with the petite which is shorter. The petticoat I bought was 21 inches long.

Pros:

* Chiffon petticoats are more likely to stay poofy.
* The material is soft and not scratchy like tulle can be
* I like how there is a pretty lace hem, I can have it peak out on longer dresses.

Cons:

* The 580 is not as poofy as I thought it would be, I kinda wished I had gotten the poofier model
* The chiffon really shifts around the waist band. It gets caught between my legs and makes me feel like a man : /

As far as promenade dance shop goes link my experience was meh. It took MONTHS for my petti to come. When I contacted the owner she said they were waiting to have the petti in stock. She was kind, and offered me a refund. But I'm patient and decided to wait. Personally though, I really think promenade shop should have listed the item as out of stock. Its not really fair to those purchasing who have no idea how long they may have to wait for there item.


I have pictures of the petti worn on me in this post:

I have this petticoat too! Did you know that the waist has two channels? if you move the elastic down to the lower one, it makes it a little more cupcakey and poofy. I generally wear more classic looks so lots of poof is not always the best, but moving the elastic really seems to make a big difference.

I know what you mean about the fabric shifting, I'd like to sew it in place!

Maybe if you wore a slip underneath, the chiffon wouldn't shift to your legs.

maybe I totally forgot about slips XD. I usually only wear them with sheer dresses.

your welcome! I'm happy it helped you :) I found I liked the poof more after shortening it like someone suggested. But on longer classic/ Alines its perfect how it is.

I apologize for my late response.o//o No way I should talk to the person choosing the models they must have trouble choosing good models (seriously) because you are the ideal model, pretty features,gorgeous hair,tall...But do not mind me making a sugary hail storm here I see good things in your future :D I mean every word of it too
