Ballgown, ca 1858 United States, MFA Boston

1864

Gown 1869, French, Made of cotton and silk taffeta

c. 864 Met: A rounded shoulderline that enhanced the length of the neck was prized through most of the nineteenth century. From the 1830s to the 1880s, it was accomplished by the lowered splayed stance of corset straps. The open neckline apparent in this wedding dress and the underbodice of this summer gown from the period suggests its romantic effect.
