It was unheard to see Victorian ladies legs. Ladies wore long skirts or dresses.

At the beginning of the Victorian era skirts went straight down.

Later it became fashionable for women to wear their skirts spread over large hoops.

At the end of the era, the hoop disappeared from view and it was back to slimmer skirts, although now sporting a bustle.

Shawls
Women often wore shawls.

Corset
Ladies wore a corset to pull-in their waist. Young Victorians tried to have a waist the same size as their age. Eighteen years old? That meant you would strive for a seventeen inch waist.
