  • Women's Fashion in the Victorian Era
    By: Hannah Miles and Marnee Kirkpatrick
  • Dress Lenghth
    The longer a woman's dress was, was the indication of how old she was. Unlike people today, these ladies wanted to wear longer skirts or dresses.
  • Pale Skin...Is Sexy?
    Back in the Victorian Era, to be pale was considered attractive because it meant that you didn't have to work in the fields to make a living. To become more pale, women could avoid fresh air or drink vinegar.
  • Hair
    Hair styles for women were typically very long. They hardly ever got their hair cut, unless they had gotten lice.
  • Cosmetics
    For a woman to wear make-up, apart from the actresses, was wrong.
    They had bare faces, but some occasionally wore a small amount of blush.
  • Clothing
    *Victorian era fashion had many layers!
    1866- Princess Dress- cut from one piece with other pieces sewn on to give a woman shape
    1867 to 1875 - Soft Bustle Silhouette - the behind of a woman was puffed out
    1878 - Curaisse Bodice - form fitted with a train in the back, trailing from behind
  • 1883 - Hard Bustle - more flat front, still very large behind
