The Victorian Guide to Women

Hilarious Victorian admonitions!

If you think about it, the first hasn't changed much: 'Girls, be a size zero to be attractive'.

And the second - the only way women were allowed to be successful was to marry well and ride on the success of their husbands.

Great video. Made me smile. xx

Goodness me it must have taken them so long to dress, can you imagine.

Very funny! And so true. I'm reminded of the Little House series (the books, not the tv show). In them, Laura detests corsets and refuses to wear them at night and sometimes during the day, to the scandal of her more traditional mother and sister. They insist she'll ruin her figure if she doesn't wear one all the time!
