Fit for a queen, or her successor

I have been reading a lot about the foundation garments women wore in different eras- corsets, panniers, hoops, etc. Someone like Anne Bolyn, second wife of Henry VIII, would have had so much stuff on under this dress, it is a wonder she was able to move around very well. I guess that is why these royal women didn't do all that much.
