This magnificent gown originally belonged to Ann Fanshawe, daughter of Crisp Gascoyne who became Lord Mayor of the City of London in November 1753. This type of dress with its very wide skirt and short train was called a ‘mantua’. Mantua gowns are first mentioned in England around the 1670s. The name might have been derived from the French word for coat, manteau, or from Mantua, the Italian town where expensive silks were produced.

It is difficult for real bodies to meet the fashion ideals. Fashion History shows many examples where people have shaped and changed the body to achieve the desired objectives. The waist can be minimal with a Corset, hips or shoulders may be made wider with padding, and high heels to compensate for lack of height. In the 1700s, women with narrow waist and wide hips considered particularly desirable. Little girls were - especially in affluent families - very early accustomed to be laced so they could get the right figure and good posture. In the 1700s used women Corset and hoop skirt. Fish The legs were used as stiffeners of the skirt. From around 1745 changed fiskebensskørtet form from being bell-shaped to become flatter and rear. In 1760s skirts reached their greatest extent. To be as inclusive as possible were used pockets. Pocher was drum-shaped pads, which were tied around the hips. They consisted of hoops of whalebone with stretched fabric, often with inside pockets (Poche = pocket). It took practice to move the big skirts, for example, you had to walk sideways through a door.

1778 British Side hoop at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "The hoops were also made of linen and stiffened with whalebone or cane. They shaped the petticoat of the gown to the appropriate silhouette. At various times during the 18th century, this profile varied from round, to square and flat, to fan-shaped."

2-11-11 Side hoop 1778 Women’s underwear served two purposes in the 18th century. The first function, carried out by the shift or smock, was to protect the clothing from the body, in an age when daily bathing was not customary. Made of very fine linen, the shift was the first garment put on when dressing. Over the shift went the linen stays, heavily reinforced with strips of whalebone. Their purpose was to mould the torso to the fashionable shape and provide a rigid form on which the gown could be arranged and fastened. The hoops were also made of linen and stiffened with whalebone or cane. They shaped the petticoat of the gown to the appropriate silhouette. At various times during the 18th century, this profile varied from round, to square and flat, to fan-shaped.
