What Lies Beneath

Victorians firmly believed in the importance of wearing the appropriate clothing for every occasion. So how did Victorian women create their famous silhouette? With no fewer than seven undergarments!


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.
