She puts on her clothes, with help in a particular order, including, a shift, stays, petticoats, pockets, roll, stockings and garters, gown and stomacher, apron and shoes. Read more about this from our curator Pauline Rushton on our blog: http://blog.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/2016/08/getting-dressed-in-the-18th-century/

I wish we still dressed like this today....most of the young ladies walk around half naked looking like trash today. We went from class to trash....

Bro...... you dropped your pockets

At one point (2:10), the woman being dressed is handed a stick and places it inside the front of her "stays" ( i.e., that orange vest-like garment). What is that? And what purpose does it serve? The narrator never explains.

18th century women: no rights, dresses with pockets 21st century women: rights, hardly any decent pockets to be found 🤔 This is a backwards development if you ask me...

At least they have big pockets. I mean, I would kill for those!

Modesty in 18th century: YOU DONT HAVE 5000 LAYERS ON!? HOW SCANDALOUS! Modestly now: You can see me butt, boobs and stomach? Perfect. 😂

Okay but the dress has pockets
Peppermint Snowdrift (11 days ago)
I HATE layers! I ESPECIALLY hate something BUNCHY underneath something TIGHT, like underwear under tights, or a loose shirt underneath a tight jacket. I'd have HATED having a top with a blousy bodice underneath a corset. Today, the tank tops that I wear out into public would be considered to be my UNDERWEAR....if a time machine were suddenly invented. LOL! Oooh, gee! She's gonna stuff those big sleeves into that TINY BODICE? I'd have rebelled! Doesn't that STOMACHER cut into your lower abdomen when you sit down?

Alice Wilde (16 days ago)
No knickers makes sense, I bet they practically never had UTIs. When they were menstruating they probably just stayed in bed.

This is what interests me about history. Their day to day lives, and how they dressed. Things that people in this day and age take for granted, but back then they put so much work into. They put so much thought into something so simple. It’s appreciative
They didn't explain why she just put a carrot in her bodice

+Accomplished Diplomacy Oh, cool!!! Try to put some feathers in your hand and you will fly. I guarantee, everybody do this!
Accomplished Diplomacy (19 days ago)
Well, you see, in the 18th century, women didn't menstruate. They simply slit their wrists fortnightly in order to expel any toxic blood. Try it, it works, and you will never have to deal with periods again!
Beverly Archer (20 days ago)
Then anybody else think Anne Hathaway from the side on the person being dressed?
Peyton c (20 days ago)
At least their womens clothes had pockets
desireeissonotcool (20 days ago)
i wonder if they ever woke up and were just not feeling it, deciding to wear just like 1-3 layers instead of 50. kinda like how people will wear sweats and a hoodie now. i bet people with depression had their ass handed to them.

I assume this is a higher class woman. Now, I see where the idea of waking early and have your assemble laid out the night before comes from. With so many layers and steps to follow.

val Fletcher (25 days ago)
Half of these comments marvel at pockets. I guess they never saw the earlier periods of dress videos. Pockets have been around at least since the 1100's...the term means simply a small bag tied around the waist. Now they are (sometimes) sewn right into clothing and that is the only difference.

Everybody had a maid in those days. And what about the maid? Did she also have a maid?
