Miniskirts are a form of short skirt, with a hemline well above the knees, generally at mid-thigh level, normally no longer than 10 cm (3.9 ″) below the buttocks. That length allows sitting on the skirt, but glimpses of the woman's panties can be seen in certain conditions.
Historically, miniskirts first appeared after World War I, although didn't become mainstream until approximately the 1960s, returning again in the 1980s following a fall from fashion in the 1970s.
Unlike more traditional skirts, miniskirts - whilst socially accepted in many North American and European cultures - are still seen as highly sexual and provocative. Due to this, miniskirts are often made of leather or PVC, although sometimes denim is used as well, and are commonly associated with fetish clothing. In the BDSM community, leather miniskirts are popular, while in spanking scenarios, traditional skirts are preferred in many instances, especially when role playing, as miniskirts are not part of many traditional costumes or uniforms.
