In the very beginning, the full dresses were very popular. They were usually supported by a vast array of petticoats which made of horsehair, or stiffened with cane and padding to achieve the full effect. The natural waist could be slightly longer than natural, with points in front and behind. Most trimmings were applied in a manner that was wide at the shoulder, narrowing at the waist and then widening again at the hem of the skirt which would accentuate the tightly laced waistline.
The bodice shoulder line ended well below the natural shoulder, often pinning the arm of the wearer down.  The sleeves were in the fitted design.
The overall look of an early victorian woman did not change much during this period. Only a little bit. But the basic look of a victorian women during 1840-1855 is as what I mentioned and posted above.
