Maybe we could mention somewhere (not necessarily in this article) skirts which are intentionally designed to tip up revealingly whenever a woman bends over. They're a rather minor phenomenon, but they're described in book 20 of John Norman's "Gor" series, and the members of the group Electrik Red wear them in the original "So Good" music video, so they do exist...

Yes, worth a mention, especially if we can have a photo. I'd suggest it belongs in Miniskirt or Voyeurism.--Ropeuser 16:18, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I really wouldn't even know where to begin to try to find a freely-licensed photo, since finding any reasonably good photo at all is difficult. All I can find right now is (rather small and blurry)... It could be said to have more to do with exhibitionism than with voyeurism, since they're fully intended to do what they do.

Anyway, what they are is miniskirts which are neither tight nor loosely flowing, but instead a kind of mini-hoopskirt, where the fabric is held away from the thighs on all sides when she stands (bell shaped as described in Players of Gor, drum-shaped as worn by Electrik Red). Unless the woman is standing still with her body held straight, there is a possibility of exposure to those around her -- and possibility becomes a near-certainty if she bends over...

Sounds like they aren't a hundred miles in principle from tutus.--Speedoslover 14:25, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Only a little bit -- a tutu is starched gauze bunched together, if I understand it, while one of what we're talking about has fabric (not necessarily transparent) stretched over a frame. By putting in "mini-hoop-skirt" and "mini-hoop-dress" into Google image search, I found one or two semi-relevant images (such as the "Organza Bow Hoop Dress", which has an added underskirt to avoid exposure), but nothing which would be a very good illustration, even they were under a free copyright license. If I actually knew the proper name, then it might be easier to do a search... AnonMoos 17:24, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
