    • Dear Meme mom! I have been trying for years to understand on how REAL court dresses were constructed during the Regency Era -- alas, without success! Therefore, I depend on your expertise: Did those ladies wear panniers like their predecessors during the 18th century (albeit circular ones), were their underpinnings constructed like a Spanish farthingale from way back, or did British courtiers invent something entirely new, i.e. a kind of flexible hoop construction that anticipated the crinoline by more than four decades? And did the British court dress have any impact on early Victorian fashions, when women all over Europe started to sport much wider gowns with an almost natural waist (i.e. just a few after the hoop-dress court style was abolished at the discretion George IV)?

I don't give two hoots about the costumes not being historically perfect, but don't even get me started on the historical nightmare of their music references.

  • There are so many reviewers of Bridgertpn out there that are historical purists and kind of snobs. This series was set in an alternate universe in which King George III married a statuesque black queen and Regency England was diverse. If you accept the alternate universe, the fashion style of this Queen Charlotte would influence the rest of society. She is a woman of color, her hair and wigs reflect that. As a queen she wouldn’t have to force herself into adopting white lady hair, she sets the style.

Julia Quinn always does amazing historical romances (unfortunately not entirely historically accurate but still amazing) I will admit that I haven't read all of it, so Maria edgecomb being married and marina Thompson confuse me too (which book were they in?) But while it's still not completely like the books themselves it is still amazing!😍 and the queen's robe a la francaise are just beautiful and amazing (if outdated but I suppose royals still have to cover up)

  • Can someone talk about the scene where the opera singer is performing in what is suppose to be an eccentric but still polite ball and has *full legs* showing? There she was, in *public*, full legs and up to *that* point in the show no legs have been seen in public view (aside from the sex scenes of course) XD I could forgive all the other silliness of this fantasy regency-era fanfic romance drama but that was jarring to me ...the fashion should reflect the cultural norms of this fictional society and it could stand a little consistency, and it raises the question if this period-inspired society cares about modest clothes at all or not. And remember this particular society deems a rumor of a woman being unchaperoned with a man for two seconds her "ruin", and strict ideas about modesty tend to go along with patriarchal ideas. It was just jarring to me, although the show doesn't promise accuracy at all so I let it slide..

  • My main complaint is that Eloise was the only female character that wore a proper day dress, Daphne is always in evening gowns, and it makes her ball gowns so underwhelming, because they're hardly any different from her more "casual" gowns, meanwhile Eloise has this very dramatic shift once we see her dressed for her first ball

    Olivia TynerOlivia Tyner11 օր առաջ
    • I think that added to the characters though. It showed that Daphne had to be on pointe at all times, she could never relax. She never wore a day dress because she had to be on her best at all times, a suitor could show up at any moment and she had to be ready to impress. The same with Eloise, her dramatic transformation signified the great change and social expectations she would now have as a young woman out in society, etc.

  • Opening the series with the tight corset scene told us immediately where this show was going. The could have called it 'spot all the inaccuracies and have fun doing so'. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I realized that Portia Featherington 'pre-invented' 1950s cocktail frocks and as the series progressed I almost hoped for a barbecue scene organised by Lady Featherington at the Serpentine Lake, the location chosen to do all the perambulation by the 'ton'. The 'mistakes' came thick and fast, one could hardly keep up or track every single one, sometimes I almost thought it deliberately created to give pain to the people obsessed with historical accuracy. French court dress at the English court with a marvelously acted black Queen Charlotte. My thought at that moment was 'My, hasn't Dame Helen Mirren changed!' Her ever changing hairstyles throughout the series had me spellbound. Unlike the hair of our heroine Daphne, did she deliberately cut her fringe too short before the series to challenge the series's hairdressers? Though I had to laugh at her boots she so carelessly abandoned after her early morning ride. So quickly taken off in a matter of a second, the convenience of having a not yet invented zip at the back of each greatly helped Daphne not to be discovered by her servant. There was so much more, and more and more, I could hardly keep up, and I haven't even mentioned any of the inaccuracies in the men's fashions, the general lack of headdress of any kind. And of course, the constant need for new dresses was clearly that the gowns were just worn too often, morning, noon, afternoon, and evenings, when in reality one had different outfits for each time of day, though it is much more fun to parade in one's best finery at the lake and at the opera.

Except it's not in 3/4 so not a waltz, and that particular excerpt lasted MANY times longer than it should without even continuing to the tuneful parts of the piece. Then there was the blatant violin miming where the violinist wasn't even touching the strings with her bow. I fuckin lost it man.

  • I just finished watching Bridgerton and immediately came to watch this video! In my experience, the “mid-boob empire waist” look is due to inexperienced (or maybe overworked?) tailors not knowing how/when to make a full bust adjustment. I was in a theatrical production of Pride & Prejudice in 2010 and ended up making my own costume. As I was cutting the pattern I noticed, hold up, that bodice is NOT enough fabric to cover my boobs!!! So I adjusted it. Anyone else with a full bust who had costumes made by a seamstress who just took measurements, decided on a pattern size, and then sewed the pattern as-is, had the mid-boob waist problem. A few years later I was in Sense & Sensibility and the same thing happened, although in this case I WARNED THEM and the costumers got all snippy with me because they were supposedly ~*~experienced~*~ but wouldn’t you know, everyone but me had a costume that cut them at the nips. Although I gotta admit that the problem is pretty bad when even Daphne doesn’t get an empire waist that fits!

  • I think that the argument of "not everything has to be historically accurate because we need to convey the right emotions and share our ~Vis!oN~" is bullshit. Emma 2020 proved it : costumes can be totally on point historically speaking AND also visually represent a modern cinema team's vision and convey emotions to modern audience. Regency does not need to be all white and cream, and even weird hairstyles can be relatable, in many ways (serious or ridiculous or or or).

  • I completely agree! I am always taken out of the movie or show, if it clearly tries to establish a historical setting, but doesn’t match the costumes. For example with The Greatest Showman, I watched it the first time without knowing what it was about, and I had no idea when it took place. I hated the costume and make up design, because everything about it confused me. And it was about a REAL PERSON! With Bridgerton, they gave you context, when it wanted to take place but early on established that this is not the real world. The audience immediately understands, that this is, like you said, a fantasy, a sort of fanfiction. It gives you enough information about the „historical period“ that you kind of know what to expect, but at the same time it makes clear, that this is all for fun and doesn’t really take place in the real 1813. I didn’t like the dresses of Lady Featherington and a lot of the Heavy make up was too much in my opinion. But overall, it didn’t break the illusion of the show, because you knew everything was a conscious choice and didn’t just feel like they were doing a bad job and weren’t aware of that. So, I agree, it works 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Everyone is British in the show, and they had training on how to speak with those old English accents, as well as other training. They put a lot of work into what they did, even if they exaggerated many things, it is supposed to be an alternate reality of what could've been, and that's what the story is about. I still find the costumes to be beautiful, because they add a lot of symbolism to the story, even if they are all over the place.

  • I completely agree! The costumes hit me very hard, right from the beginning and I understood that more than historical, it was "Alternative universe" historical feel. In that way, it strongly reminds me of a book called Incarceron, which tells story of modern world, in which the King has decided to rule out overt and visible use of anything modern, they even dress the same as in 1850s or earlier, they do housework the same way, everything. Bridgerton gave me the same impression, as if it is only pretending to be historical, as if something is stirring in the background, I was expecting to be told it is some alternative universe, alien planet, I dont know... Once I got used to it, however, I appreciated the novelty very much, but completely separate it from true or believable category of historical.

  • The books that Bridgerton is based on are not un-analagous to Jane Austen fanfic. The Regency Romance genre (which does NOT include Jane Austen, as she was writing in that era about her era; the Regency Romance, as a modern marketing category, is historical fiction, i.e. written about a past historical period) is heavily inspired by Jane Austen, but, well, things have changed since the actual Regency. Heck, things have changed since Georgette Heyer pioneered the genre in the 1920s! So a lot of things that were invisible or unquestioned in romantic fiction of the Regency Era are actually pulled out and questioned in Regency Romance Novels. The genre is really interesting to explore, but it's important to remember that historical fiction has the goals of fiction, not the goals of history.

  • Frock Flicks (my go to on this stuff, sorry Karolina) have great blog posts on Bridgerton. They talk about how the costume designer (who I think was probably on a pretty strict budget, and spent most of it on choice damasks and velvet fabrics and used what she could elsewhere, and I must say a lot of the fabric is very cheap) says that she wasn’t going for historical accuracy because it takes place in a completely fictional universe. I think she took appropriate creative license with what she was given, a historical world vaguely similar to ours. She knew costuming sticklers would hate her creations and rake her over the coals, but that she’s cool with it because she knew that what she envisioned didn’t line up with historical accuracy. I think she had fun with it and did her own thing which I applaud her for! My only criticism is that there are no chemises in sight under those corsets and that they shouldn’t have been wearing corsets but stays because the whole point of the regency style (like modern spanks almost) was to show off your natural figure.

  • it's just a show, it doesn't claim to be historically accurate. it's not a documentary, no need to take it so serious. they are obviously are going for a fictional take on history, so i find it really weird that people are getting upset because of it. btw this comment isn't directed at karolina or her video, but at the upset people in the comment section and in general.

  • Currently wearing a corset (I actually own a steel boned long one which supports my entire body weight, but this is the cane one) and I'm wishing my clothes were designed to fit over it. I mean, it's a set shape - it would actually be far EASIER to fit into fashionable clothing if it was designed to follow the shape of a specific corset style than "one-size-fits-all-boobs-hips-and-waists" attitude... And in the meantime, I have comfortable abdominal compression (for my IBS), back support (once I loosen it; may have done it up a wee bit too tight), a killer hip curve and relief from my tight straps bra rash!
