A lady gets dressed in the fashion of 18th century. She puts on her clothes, with help in a particular order, including, a shift, stays, petticoats, pockets, roll, stockings and garters, gown and stomacher, apron and shoes. Read more about this from our curator Pauline Rushton on our blog: http://blog.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/2016/08/getting-dressed-in-the-18th-century/

So elegant.. Those were the days when women were not objects of display...their bodies not commercialised to sell goods....now women are brainwashed into thinking the less the clothes more forward and liberated they are...and those who do not wish to display their bodies and prefer to be covered from head to toe are mocked...

What a beautiful and full covered dress.very nice. Bible teach us, women should wear this type dress.

To all the people calling women these days with shorts and shirts classless sluts let it be known that women, especially aristocratic women those days would most often faint and even die because of how tight their corsets were tied and how would often suffer heatstroke too during summer times. So ya lets TOTTALY die of cinched waist just cause you think women shouldn't be allowed to dress how they want.

I totally understand now why underwear wasn’t a thing unless they were on their period. They probably just lifted their skirts to go to the bathroom (I assume they would need help lol). If you had to take underwear off it’d even more of a struggle. Couldn’t imagine.

The hip pad cracks me up!!! Can you imagine a guy (dreams of a Brazilian round butt) only to see a small flat butt after undressing her and finds the hip pad?

Wah. Good luck to the husband trying to undress her. Reminds me of Draupadi of Mahabharata. She was dragged to the assembly because her husband had gambled her away. When people tried to disrobe her, there were magically so many layers of her cloth that the villain got tired of undressing.

This is beautiful I wish we could still get something like that still in stores but maybe with less layers. It seems really thick and like too many layers for a dress I do appreciate the fact that they try to make it so it’s fit for winter but I don’t think they’re that popular anymore because we live in a society

Serious question, what did they do when they had their period since they didnt wear knickers?
Emira Abdulovska (8 days ago)
+PoisonTheOgres maybe i didn't frame my question correctly, I'm not a dumb cunt they obviously used something but i was wondering as to WHAT they where using since they didn't wear knickers.
PoisonTheOgres (8 days ago)
They would use tampons, just like us, or they would tie rags (pieces of fabric) between their legs with a tie around their waist to catch the blood. The tampons could be made from natural sponge, or from tightly rolled up fabric. People weren’t idiots back then :)

For those wondering about the wooden thing she slid under her corset, here is the answer: A busk (also spelled busque) is a rigid element of a corset at the centre front of the garment. They were intended to keep the front of the corset straight and upright, and were typically made of wood, ivory, or bone slipped into a pocket and tied in place with a lace called the busk point. These busks were often carved and decorated, or inscribed with messages, and were popular gifts from men to their sweethearts.

I'm so happy I didn't live back then! Besides that, I would've been a scullery maid or cook or some such thing. Looks like even the servants wore restrictive clothing. It would be uncomfortable enough being a rich "lady" lounging around in all that but I can't imagine manual labor in uncomfy clothes. By the way, what was that thing she stuck between her boobs?
John Morrison (14 days ago)
The five percent dressed this well, not the peasants whose clothes were usually handspun and many fewer layers. The aristocrats had maids to help them dress and as this video shows with all that tying and pins, you could not dress yourself. Dressing in silk and embroidered clothes was showing off your status. Zippers were not invented yet.
