Historically accurate 1850s/1860s crinoline/hoop skirt undergarment question.

Hi, I hope it's okay that I ask these questions because I want to be informed. I was wondering what is a historically accurate crinoline/hoop skirt undergarment in the 1850s/1860s? What does it look like and made out of? What are the different styles of historically accurate crinoline/hoop skirts? I'm sure they used cage crinolines, etc. but any more? Did they have clothed ones and were there adjustable ones? Also, what is the historically accurate circumference? Pictures and/or descriptions appreciated. Thanks.
