  2. I'd be really interested to see some "rational dress" worn in the 1890s! Have you come across much?

    1. That's a very good question. I've searched for examples of rational dress only to decide I'm not qualified enough to notice the difference between the dresses that I've posted above, and examples of hygienic or rational dress. When you get right down to it, as with Warner Brother Corsets, the difference was in the way that clothing fit, and how it allowed women to breathe or move. There are a few obvious pieces, like outfits designed for specific activities (bicycling, for example), but in terms of a ball gown... I don't really notice which dresses were rational and which were not.
      See: for more on ladies' underwear in the US re the healthy dress movement. I'm going to see if I can add some sporting costumes to this post.

  3. All the vintage clothing's that has been posted here are extremely elegant, stylish and beautiful. They are very impressive.In Edressit you can get the latest collection of a wide range of evening dress with sleeves, party dresses and prom dresses.
