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.

The maids and slaves didn’t dress like this. Would be great to see how they dressed without having servants to help them.

I believe most of this clothing was designed for heat in the way that doesn't seem practical to us cuz we enjoy showing their belly Right girls.

I think at that time there was no concept of bra ... thats why ladies do the hiding job with kind of boards underneath the dresses 😞

Да, я понимаю, это безусловно роскошный убранство. Но будто ей быть, если ей захочется в уборную. Не будет же она это все снимать, а позже облекать. А вобщем я незнаю. Может быть кто нибудь знает, будто в этом случае они поступали.

Heather Dabdoub (11 days ago)
I feel sorry for the women who lived in the hot-humid-sweltering-heat south who had to dress like that. O the torture🤦🏻‍♀️
Starlexia Moon (11 days ago)
Onestly I would die after just the 1st layer, and I can't even Imagine how uncomfortable that is!Especially in the summer!😌
slvrangel22 (11 days ago)
This was actually really cool to see. A little overwhelming to think of how long it would take to get dressed. I am curious as to how many layers the maid wore. Clearly not as many... she would need her own maid just to get dressed.
...and they say, asians are perverted... Hip pads! HIP PADS, MY AXXE!
CringeFramesTNM (12 days ago)
I like these outfits, other than it looking extreamly hot, they have pockets, and it isn't like the revealing crop tops that are popular today. It looks respectable.
BLUE BIRD (12 days ago)
WOW! No wonder they needed small waists. If we wore all those layers nowadays, some of us would look pregnant. Those women were tough!
Cheryl Garrigo (12 days ago)
i would not be able to wear that many layers of clothes...i just would not survive if i had to live in that century.
Pink Clouds (12 days ago)
No wonder they were so thin , you must burn a ton of calories when the clothes weigh more than you do .
Felix the cat (12 days ago)
