The other is to make the upper gown or skirt look more "full" and aboundant. The third is to put it over the hoops so that they wouldn't be visible under the upper skirt. Especially when using hoops, the best results are obvious only with several petticoats. They were usually made of linen or cotton, the more expensive and exquisite ones were made of silk, hemmed with lace. In 1820-1830, when the bell shape of the skirt was fashionable and the hoops were not yet re-envented, petticoats of some more solid materials were used, like horse and goat hair.
