Getting dressed
« on: August 13, 2018, 07:12:06 PM »
on youtube a stumbled on to a video "Getting Dressed WW I the VADs" which showed you what a VAD (Volunteer Aid Detachment) nurse wore. No doubt other women of the period also wore the same underneath. I thought some people of this site would be interested.

Interesting video.  I've never seen anything like it before.  The number of items put on and buttoned and laced up is amazing.  Of course it would all have to be done over again in reverse at the end of each day.  No wonder rich women had maids to help them dress.

there are other videos on youtube that I have watched: "Dressing Edwardian lady" and " Dressing Elizabethan lady" and there are many others. lets say women really needed a maid or maids to help them dress. As for the VAD nurse remember these women had to work dressed like this.

'Ladies' were a small elite group who belonged to the aristocracy. Most of the female population in English-speaking countries were referred to as 'women' and only a small proportion of the wealthier women would have had maids to help them dress. We plebians would have had much less elaborate and more practical clothes and we would not all dress for dinner every night. Things have not changed all that much.

Great videos of Elizabethan and Edwardian dressing!  All that lacing and hooking must have taken forever - and to think they went through that at least once a day.

Yeah, it probably did. 

I can't even imagine having to go through that rigmoral every day.
