The historical skirt for Ladies
The history of the medieval skirt is actually short, unlike the skirt itself. In the Middle Ages there were dresses or tunics for ladies
. With the start of the Renaissance in the 15th century
, when people liked to emphasize
the waist with the help of bodices, skirts, so to speak half dresses,
were developed. It was simply more practical. The hoop skirt was
developed to emphasize the female forms even more and at the same time
to keep the male counterpart at a proper distance, hence the name
. Medieval skirts are versatile in Larp and a common way of dressing. Combined with a blouse
one quickly has a solid basic garment together to represent, for
example, a farmer's wife or maid. But also in other epochs than the
skirts were worn. For example, in Steampunk Larp
, which is
generally oriented towards the Victorian era, skirts are a popular
accessory for women.
Buy Crinoline, Bustle and Farthingale from Andracor
The hoop skirt is an underskirt spread by hoops made of wood, fish
bone or spring steel. Depending on form and epoch one differentiates
between Verdugado, Farthingale, Panier, Crinoline or Bustle.
Verdugado is a wicker hoop skirt from the 15th century from
Spain, first bell-shaped and later conical. In France, the hoop skirt
was made in barrel form. The French Farthingale was also worn by Elisabeth I of England. Less wealthy women wore the bum role,
a hip cushion. In the middle of the 18th century the Panier came into
fashion and later the short Cul de Paris, which were very popular in
rococo. These baskets sat right and left on the hip and gave it a partly
extreme width. In the middle of the 19th century the hoop skirt came
back as an extra wide crinoline. Due to the frequent accidents caused by
this rather impractical piece of clothing, the fashion disappeared
again quite fast. Instead of the crinoline, the Bustle was used. The
Bustle is a padding under the dress and strongly emphasizes the buttock .
At the end of the 19th century, however, this aid also went out of
fashion. In the middle of the 20th century the petticoat came up with rock'n'roll, a puffed up underskirt. Nowadays these are only worn with wedding dress or ball gown.
