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)?

In the books, the Featheringtons are notorious for wearing hideous dresses so Bridgerton got that right.

I decided not to watch it because I saw the preview on Netflix and thought "why is everyone's bustline halfway through their titties?" And I ultimately decided I couldn't get past that.

honestly, really glad you had the disclaimer at the beginning RE: costume design is not all about accuracy. there's a level of entertainment and meeting audience expectations--whether those expectations are accurate or not--that can sometimes take precedence. the disclaimer at the beginning just helps me know that you're doing a good-faith analysis. much easier to watch!!

Bridgerton, like the books it's taken from, is a regency fantasy romance. It's not meant to really reflect the era it's inspired from. Although it's much less obvious that it's artificial in the books because your brain makes up the environment, people, costumes etc, as you read along. So you're less susceptible to imagine cheap synthetic fluorescent fabrics lol I like the bold color choices for the Penelope character and even her mother, BUT I hate the feeling that the people who casted the actresses and those who created the designs thought they were too fat and/or old and adjusted the cuts according to that stupid opinion. Which gives us the quad boob effect on Penelope's dresses, or the wtf fitted-waist on a high-waisted dress for the mom…

I would be interested in what you think of the costume accuracy in Stanley Kubrick’s movie BARRY LYNDON. Kubrick was a stickler for accuracy and for me it looks to be one of the most accurate depictions of the 18th century that I have seen. But you know far more about this than I do and if you’ve seen it , it would be interested to hear your opinion

Yes, a lot of series and movies show what Americans THINK Brittish people looked like, but they have no idea of the class system and such. The garments are not always that bad, some are actually good. Bridgerton is just fantasy and fine.

The mid-breast empire waistline of some of the dresses made me wince - had to be uncomfortable and looked jarring. And the park daywear dress that was clearly meant for evening wear made me wonder if the character was going to get a set down from one of the fashion dragons...but she didn’t.

I say this to my students all the time (I’m a costume design teacher) that mixing periods is probably the most difficult thing you can do as a costumer. People think mixing modern aesthetic and historic shapes is easy, or even mixing multiple periods. It is oh so very not! I’ve seen some truly wretched Elizabethan dramas wheee the costumer tried to mix periods, for some reason that era of costuming makes people think they should think outside the box. Get back inside the box, sometimes, the box can be useful.

I like your output though I'm honestly not sure what about it appeals to me. Not that it's not interesting and well-presented but I have practically no interest in fashion. I guess what I like is the backlash against modern presentism. I would say that I don't think the random distortion effects really add anything to this one (not sure if that's the right term, referring to the ones at 5:57 and 6:48)

I can't believe shows like Outlander or Bridgerton are popular. Generally there's so much soft-porn, gratuitous nudity and violence in shows and movies with little substance elsewise. This generation must have the worst taste ever (women anyway).

For anyone wondering, hand embroidery takes forever especially when dealing with small details, simpler colour fill can be faster but anything detailed or curving takes awhile. Part of the problem is that you have to kind of find the right spot to pierce through or it looks really weird and can be hard to correct without making it look weird or pulling it back through the hole again and just trying again. That being said in the era of mass manufacturing and cheap clothes its very easy hobby to start because you can get a set of needles for a few dollars and its like 50c for 8 metres of the threads.

Another video of yours, March 7, 2021, mentioned this series. Bookworm and music, music, music. So never seen Bridgerton - are those "acid colours" accurate, neon puce, peculiar peach, etc. Now to be fair do you expect authentic "hand woven" ? To me, just want I've seen in few clips,mthe costumes are slightly off- now is that to make the character seem like the "ugly" stepsister, loser? That hot pink dress with the Dollar Store, necklace/ Hawaiian lei! I doubt I will watch it - another Jane Austen spinoff of a spinoff. Never watched, thanks in part to YOU, the most recent remake of Little Women. I was happy with the Winoba Ryder, Susan Saradon one, still want to watch the Elizabeth Taylor one- now that will be interesting, will the mindset of the 1940's influence the costumes of a Jane Austen story. Wow amazing factoid, the slim gowns, vs the court ladies hoop skirts- atrocities is an understatement...Thanks as always for info, inspiration, and a laugh. Namaste, Z. ( I almost always look at the women's costumes more, the men- how accurate are they? and are they dull like most men, 1960's excepted)

I was today years old when i realised that Bridgertones action is set two years later then Pan Tadeusz action and im shook (I chcecked because costumes in 1999 movie seemed somehow familiar in silhouette to the regency era dresses and turnes out for a reason). It`s crazy how different it has always felt to me, like it was completely different time

late to the party, but, my take on the overboob issue is, I suspect, the costume designer trying to make the actress's bodies appear younger and less developed. I looked up the ages of Daphne, Eloise, and Penelope's actresses out of curiosity and two of them are 30+ year old women playing teenagers. Daphne, I suspect, would be in her late teens to make her marriage and sex scenes with Simon less creepy. But Eloise and Penelope are probably mid-teens, if the average age of coming out is an indicator. In the spirit of making them look that young: well-freaking-done. So yeah, my guess is that the costume designer intentionally designed the dresses in an attempt to mask the actress's fully matured bodies, and that, as the characters age and the show progresses, the dresses will magically fit correctly to reflect their blossoming into womanhood. I will say this, though: I hated the jewelry.

I think with Penelope's mom, her atrocious dress shape might have been to let the viewer know that she has terrible taste. I think that's a main point about her character in the books and I think it's lightly touched on in one of the episodes.

Stop having nonsensical blogs and debates about Historical Accuracy and colour blind casting about "FANTASY FICTION" movies, there were no Fire breading Dragons or Dragon princess ever on earth, yet there were in Game of Thrones because it was a "FANTASY FICTION" movie just like BRIDGERTON , if you want Historical Accuracy do not watch "FANTASY FICTION" movies that came from fiction novels or books like Bridgerton, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Peter Pan, Harry Potter, beauty and the beast, Game of Thrones i think you got my point they are all fantasy fiction movies, watch "A united Kingdom, 12 years of Slavery, the green book, roots, and many other none fictional movies if you looking for Historical Accuracy those are the movies worthy of that kind of debate, SMH
