Victorian Hats -Some Are Very Unusual

I am not a hat person.  I do not wear hats, I don't look good in hats.  I recently purchased several old postcards of women and their extraordinary hats.  I wonder about the weight of some of these hats, were they heavy to wear?  Did your neck get tired?  Did they ever take them off, when they were out and about?  And in one of the pictures, there is the baggy hat.  I'm afraid my mother would have to threaten me pretty severely to get me to wear such a hat.  I have seen a photo of a young girl with this style of hat, I was guessing maybe someone had made it for her  -as a lark.  I can see I have much studying to do on the history of women's hats!
