      Court dress, ca. 1750. British. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Purchase, Irene Lewisohn Bequest, 1965 (C.I.65.13.1a–c) | The most remarkable examples of eighteenth-century dress had extreme proportions, appearing barely wider than the body in profile but as broad as possible in a front or rear view. The skirt of this English gown is fifty-five inches wide and was supported by panniers, or side hoops, of bent willow or whalebone covered in linen. #OneMetManyWorlds

As illustrated here, the robe à la française has a fitted overdress. It is open at the front, with a decorative bodice insert called a stomacher covering the corset and an underskirt, the petticoat, showing under the splayed drapery of the overskirt.
