On this webpage, constructed by Cornell University, we get to see the “historic dress” of the Romantic Period. What is different between Cornell’s webpage and what we learned in class is they have the Romantic period from 1815 to 1840. According to them, dresses became fuller and more natural. According to them, women dressed both “weak” and decorative. This is because at this time, they were still considered the “weaker” sex. Below is the image they use to illustrate what was commonly worn.
