(Here’s an extra bit of interesting info about the history of the underskirt, petticoat or hoop!)
The petticoat has varying different names……. underskirt, hoop, slip and the practice of wearing petticoats as undergarments was well established by 1585.
Petticoats were worn throughout history by women who wanted to have the currently fashionable shape created by their clothing. The petticoat(s), if sufficiently full or stiff, would hold the overskirt out in a pleasingly domed shape and give the impression of a smaller waist than the wearer actually had. It would also complement the desired large bust. (Which woman wouldn’t want this look ?!)
In more recent years and specifically in the bridal industry underskirts have been used to again provide fullness in the skirt of a wedding gown, but more to provide comfort to the bride. Until you’ve been in a wedding dress you won’t appreciate the ventilation it provides and also the freedom to walk easily!
