"Beauty, a gift of a day that the sky envies"
[Alphonse De Lamartine]

During the Renaissance, women's clothing long kept the fashion of tight bodice slatted support, from where it started the skirt very curled, often raised to allow a glimpse of the precious petticoat. The tight sleeves with puffs and sumptuous embroidery it accentuated the sumptuousness.

"What makes the vanity of others unbearable is that terribly offends our"
[Francois De La Rochefoucauld]

In the eighteenth century the novelty, the farthingale for women is a kind of cage metal semicircles, to be connected at the waist, under her skirt, to enlarge on the sides. The corsets trimmed with ribbons and lace, with generous necklines completed the surcoat, raised to the side to increase the volume.

"The clothes change the appearance of the world in our eyes and in the eyes of the world we"
[Virginia Woolf]

By this time the ladies dresses are enriched with flounces, festoons and flowers, and widen greatly supported by multiple petticoats and crinoline. After 1870 the fashion changes radically, skirts become flat front and swollen behind, resting on a small pillow placed as a saddle on her hips. The train back touching the ground, the waist and close-fitting bodice will give the female figure a special charm.
