Zygmunt August i Barbara Radziwiłłówna z dworem, Jan Matejko

1860  The vast hoop skirts of the mid-19th century were supported by crinolines – steel, cage-like structures worn with a corset and petticoats. They were cumbersome and dangerous (it was tricky to sit down and to get in and out of carriages plus they could get trapped in machinery and catch fire) but at least they were lightweight and allowed the wearer’s legs to move freely. The crinoline reached its maximum dimensions in 1860 and then started to shrink to less ludicrous proportions.
