The Marie Antoinette Panniers or side hoops are women's undergarments worn during the eighteenth century. Panniers/side hoops extended the width of the skirts at the side while leaving the front and back flat. This provided a flat panel where boldly scaled woven patterns or rich embroidery could be seen very vividly.The style originated in Spain during the 17th century. By mid-eighteenth century it had been developed into the robe à la française, which ensured that a woman took up three times as much space as a man and always presented very dramatic, imposing spectacle. At their most extreme, in the French court of Marie Antoinette, panniers could extend the skirt several feet at each side.
