Women´s fashion in the 16th century in Spain was formed by corset that was reinforced by underwire and in case of girls even by metal blades that should prevent their breasts from growing. Women´s skirt was supported by crinoline with metal hoops and padings. These paddings were made of felt and sea grass. Over their corset and crinoline women used to dress double outer robe of heavy silk, decorated by pearls, precious stones, ribbons and embroideries.
By the end of the 1960s in the time when Biedermeier fashion was ceasing, new fashion appeared in upper class to which all women surrended. Its base was tightly contracted corset and padding which was being tied to the belt back. Paddings were made mostly of horsehair. From the side view, observer could see unnaturally stylized figure in S-shape.
