Vive Le Confort! For Corseted Courtiers, This Dress Was A French Revolution

This rare 1700s robe volante, or "flying dress," was recently purchased by Palais Galliera, a fashion museum in Paris.

A "robe volante", derived from negligee, which was worn during the latter years of the reign of Louis XIV (1638–1715), enjoyed popularity as formal wear in the early 18th century. The large flounce flowed from the shoulders to the ground and was shaped to spread softly over the skirt, characterized this style of gown. Although the corset was worn tightly laced underneath, the loose-fitting robe gave a comfortable and relaxed impression on the outside.
