Victorian Era V.S Today Fashion
- Women of the Victorian Era wore full skirts that were supported by petticoats that were made of horse hair or stiffened with can and padding.
- 1865-1869 the skirt became unpopular and was replaced by a framework known as a bustle. After a while, the pobraise was born. A pobraise is a bodice and overskirt in one garmet, in many shapes or styles. In 1877, the bustle had deminished from the wire frames of wire of earlier to a small pad or nothing at all. These skirts had strings inside to hold together the front to the legs leaving the back like a train. 1883-1889 The bustle came back a vengance. The skirts were slim in the front but remained bigger in the back. In 1890, the bustle disappered for good.
The men wore a vest covered by a frock with a coat with a top hat. They wore trousers that had stripes or often wore checks. There accessories was a cravet and a pocket watch.
