By Kate Galvin

*crinoline is a stiff fabric made of horse hair and cotton or linen thread.
Other undergarments French women wore were called shifts or slips that had low necklines and elbow length sleeves. They also wore stays which are the same things as corsets, which have whale bone or wood in them. The stays were covered with a stomacher*.
*A stomacher is a decorated triangular panel.
In my opinion, I think 18th Century women's fashion was beautiful, but I wouldn't want to wear it.
The shoes they wore had high curved heels and were made of fabric or leather with separate shoe buckles. The shoe buckles were made of either polished metal, silver, paste stones, etc.

18th Century French Women's Fashion
The hairstyle French women wore in the 18th Century was called a pouf. They powdered their hair and put extravagant things in and on their hair.
On top of the shift, stay, and panniers,they wore gowns or robes. They were low necked, and opened up at the bottom to show the petticoat wore beneath. Some dresses were open at the top to show the stomacher on the stay. Some dresses had close fitting sleeves with ruffles. The sack-back gown had back pleats hanging loosely from the neckline. The stiff-bodied gown had a low oval neckline.
