1700  half bodice by Tadarida 1700  half bodice by Tadarida
A new pic! Two ladies wearing late 17th/early 18th century haristyles and some pretty unusual dresses, with decorative or even armor-like bodices worn outside. I've been intrigued by those gowns for quite some time now. I've been seeing them on numerous paintings (mainly by Nicolas Largilliere but not only), but I haven't found any description anywhere....

Here's some examples:

This isfascinating me. It looks in the references more like stiffened satin than actual metal, but I'm not sure.

It's so weird since these outfits look like they belong in a fantasy novel, but instead they are actual history. And I love them.
