The first hoop petticoats were worn way back at the end of the 16th century. The frames were made of whalebone, wood or metal. This type of Farthingale petticoat, as it was known in English, originated in Spain where it was called Verdugado
, or 'guardians of virtue'. Which was very apt, as by the end of the 17th century they were only worn in Spanish courts and had gone out of fashion elsewhere, but made their comeback a few centuries later. Various forms of the hoop petticoat were worn during the mid 18th century: The Pannier
(French for basket), also made primarily from wood or whalebone, appeared in around 1715 and was replaced in the middle of the century by the Spring Skirt and the Pocket Hoop petticoat
with its pockets sitting on either hip. Later, around the time of the French revolution, the fashion motto of the time was "back to nature". Women of the aristocracy made their social class apparent by wearing heavy satin and silk fabrics with numerous fabric underskirts. Women in lower social classes made do simply by wearing multiple underskirts. Later in the 19th century the hoop petticoat became popular again and this time in the form of the Crinoline. The Crinoline was originally made from horsehair. As they became more widely distributed, spring steel strips were used to make the Crinolines because they were much cheaper to manufacture. In around 1870 the Bustle came into fashion, which only plumped up the back section of the skirt. The so-called Bustle Skirt disappeared from women's fashion at the end of the century. And since then, apart from its brief reappearance in the form of the "War Crinoline", the hoop petticoat has only been apparent in wedding dresses and historical costumes. Many years later - approx. at 1954 - the petticoat was born again due to the appearance of Rock'n'Roll music. Till that time the petticoat is very popular in all kinds of length and colours.
