Throughout the beginning of time, gowns have been a staple of women’s attire. Gowns used to be the exclusive domain of the nobility, and those who wore them made a statement about their money, familial rank, and social standing. In the courts of the world’s rulers, it became the goal of every woman to dress better than the others by donning the finest robes. Styles of Gowns with exquisite needlework, trimmings, and embellishments, made of the most expensive cloth, became the standard attire for everyday, not only special events.
Long trains, tight bodices with tightly laced corsets, draped outer layers, high and low necklines, and elaborate sleeves were common features of the gowns worn in European courts for a very long time. The skirts also featured numerous layers of petticoats and hoops to maintain the shape. The gowns were made from pricey materials like taffeta and silk brocade.
Empire line clothing, which featured gathered skirts, very low necklines, short sleeves, and light, airy fabrics, was popular during the 18th century. Gowns were created in simpler designs that were more in line with the natural contour of the feminine figure after the French revolution in 1780, according to the naturalism trend.
1. EVENING GOWNS
Long dresses that are appropriate for wearing on formal or special occasions are known as formal evening gowns. These dresses are typically made of pricey fabrics, have exquisite embellishments, and are intended to make the wearer stand out in the crowd.
2. MORNING GOWNS
Long, informal dresses known as morning gowns are worn during the day.
3. BALL GOWNS
The most popular silhouette for gowns is the ball gown, which has a fitted bodice, a narrow waist, and a very long, floor-length skirt with or without a train.
It has a good drape and fits the body perfectly without adding volume at the waist or hips or being tight fitting at the hem. This gown is cut with the true cross grain/bias of the fabric. The fluidity and body-hugging fit of the skirt’s fabric make this dress incredibly alluring on a variety of body types.
