Yeah..I decided that making a video about the history of women’s bustlines and necklines needed to be done…and wow was there a lot to unpack.
We’ve all seen 100 years of women’s dresses/shoes/hairstyles/etc. etc. etc. but the evolution of fashion isn’t that simple. As this video will show you, ideals in female body proportions, shapes, and positions change constantly. It’s not just about big sleeves, bustle, or a hoop skirt. The upper body changes as well, from up at ’em to low and wide, it’s all over the place.
So, in this video, we’re going to explore the 500-year history of women’s dress through the necklines and the bustlines. Beginning at the Tudor period, through the Elizabethan, the 1630s, Louis XIV and the Restoration, all of the 18th-century, Regency era, and every damn decade of the Victorian era (cause wow, is there a lot there.🤯) We’ll also discuss how bodies, stays, and corsets changed and affected the female body shape via padding, wadding, compression, lift, and support, so if you enjoyed the Corsets vs. Stays video, then you’ll also really enjoy this video.
