You all enjoyed part 1 of reacting to bizarre Victorian fashion so much, and many of you asked for a part 2, that I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to release a follow-up video. Historical fashion continues to challenge our understanding of history, with so many weird and bizarre items appearing throughout my time researching antique garments and going through museum collections. These videos are always so much fun to film as a lot of the items can be quite comical too.

Please note: It has come to my attention that the use of the term “skin-coloured” to describe the buff gown in the video was a very harmful and poor choice of words on my part. I’m incredibly sorry for any hurt I may have caused and have educated myself on why that was a hurtful choice of words (and will continue to educate myself). I have removed that section of the video so that it will not continue to do harm and I will work to be even more mindful of my language and microaggressions in the future.

If you’d like to see even more bizarre historical fashion items, I regularly post my findings on my alternate Instagram page:

I’ll be back next week with a very special video. Thanks so much for watching and see you all on Friday!

Yours, etc.
