In the 18th Century womenswear became larger and more formal than ever before. Still corsetted, formal gowns became heavier, stiffer and more embellished; skirts extended sideways and bodices had extended panels hanging from the shoulders. Ordinary women wore gowns that mimicked the rich, formal gowns or simpler bodices and skirts that were more practical for working in.
