Here’s what the process of putting on ballroom dresses looked in the 1850-1860s. It was practically impossible to get into the outfit with Krinolin on its own, so the maid helped every girl. Krinolin himself came up with the French designer of English origin Charles Frederick Vort. Once, they and his wife sold a couple of these dresses to the wife of the Austrian Ambassador Paulina Background of Mettern. TU in an unusual dress saw Empress Evgenia and immediately ordered several similar specimens. After that, Krnolin quickly entered the fashion.
Krnolin could reach a diameter of 180 cm, so lovers constantly had problems with overcoming doorways. There were more dramatic cases when Krnolin became literally dangerous for life: several girls died due to the fact that they were tanned with dresses, and they did not notice this in time. However, the situation is known when Krnoline, on the contrary, saved. In 1885, Sarah Ann Henley quarreled with her lover and jumped from Clifton bridge in Bristol (United Kingdom). She survived after falling from a height of 75 m, as Krinoline slowed down, playing the role of parachute. Previously, "my planet" talked about what other victims of the Women of the past went to look beautiful and fashionable.
