No i think I would hate this fashion as they would be so hot and tedious to put on.

You need help to do it all up and put the corset and things on, so definitely not -would rather today's open, cool fashions.

No - it would take way too long to get ready in the morning

I wear one a couple of times a year. This photo is at the Colonial Ball. Although I wouldn t want to wear this fashion daily, it is fun and you do feel different. Corsets don t have to be ridiculous and are less uncomfortable that many bras. Getting in a car with a crinoline is trciky but the hoops do squish. When you do the whole thing properly you can see why they needed a maid.
No,for various reasons,including the acrid smell of bodies not washed as regularly as we do today!!!
I think they look much more elegant than a lot of recent fashions but so impractical - a lot of ladies fainted on a frequent basis as their internal organs were crushed by the corsets needed to obtain this silhouette and their ribs couldn't expand sufficiently to breather properly.
Also because fabric was expensive and a dress like this takes yards and yards and yards of fabric, even the very rich didn't own many dresses so they would have smelt. No doubt about it.
Then there's the practicality of how you would get through a door frame - a lot of the wide skirts meant ladies had to sidle sideways into rooms!
As for being too hot, I don't think that would have been a problem - Victorian ladies wore these dresses with MANY layers of petticoats underneath in India and other hot countries that were part of the Empire and didn't seem to suffer unduly. To a certain extent, being covered up is cooler than having uncovered skin in hot countries.
No, we have moved on to much more liberated times... thankgoodness

I have never had one of these and I do not know much about these dresses. I find them really beautiful and elegant. I would love to wear it for just once and take lot's of pictures.

Nope. Too many layers of clothing! Doesn't go down well in the sub-tropics!

It's only that they had so many people 'fanning' them cool, that they could wear them in the East!
Not unless they were split down the front with matching trews underneath. They are lovely, though.
