Victorian women wore an extraordinary amount of underwear: first came the chemise and drawers, followed by a corset, under-petticoat, crinoline or hoop skirt, over-petticoat, and bustle.

While our Hopeless Romantic Camisole & Petticoat set isn’t true to the original in all ways, it will certainly keep you cooler in those hot summer months. Layer this soft cotton duet beneath sweaters and skirts, or wear as a night set.
