Curious to know what ladies’ underwear was in the 1850s? Join us for a fun and informative event to discover exactly what a lady wore under her skirt as our special guest takes us through her daily dressing process.

The sight of women in hooped skirts, petticoats and impossible waist lines is familiar to many. In this unique event in the Como Ballroom, Dame Victoria will demonstrate and explain all the ins and outs of her undergarments. Learn all about the various layers under the dress and discover how a corset was a girl’s best friend for life.
