    As a representative of le reddit army I can attest that this is a true m’lady and I have been tipping my fedora to the screen for the entire video.

  4. MonoDde says:

    Wait a minute… you keep saying “working woman” in the video. Is this being said as a euphemism for prostitute or is it just meant as a woman who works for a living?

    Lol like she is putting on body armor

  6. victoneter says:

    It does seem kind of comfortable. I think it had to be such a chore to get dressed back then because they couldn’t make single pieces of clothing that fit comfortably. Or regular people couldn’t afford it

  7. Nico The Rabbit says:

    A friend of mine has decided that people should only wear one type of fashion.
    He’s very clothes-minded.

  11. M Ziegler says:

    At least women had pockets back then…

      Some Random Name it’s honestly such a blessing if my pants have back pockets

    • DesktopDragon says:

      Some Random Name who uses back pockets for anything… you can’t use it for your phone, it’s too uncomfortable… gosh, what am I doing with my life, I’m having a conversation (argument?) about pant pockets….

    • TooBlue says:

      DesktopDragon Wdym??? I buy skinny jeans all the time and they always have enough room to hold my earbuds, my entire iPhone X, and a few extra things (gum, lipstick, stylus, etc.). I’ve never seen/worn a pair of women’s pants that didn’t have normal pockets.

    • DesktopDragon says:

      TooBlue Wow….. I guess I’ve been getting the wrong pants XD

    • Breezie Newcomb says:

      Really big ones too.

    I’m getting a fever just from watching her put on all those layers. I’m doing good to walk up a hill wearing jeans and long sleeves. I would have died back then.

  13. DonutTheTrap says:

    The things women go through to have pockets in their clothes

  14. Chanel Number2 says:

  16. Lenora Mars says:

    Soon as I think she done getting dressed she adds another piece of clothing

  17. rahul says:

    Cleanliness was important but she didnt shower

  18. NooB-Noob says:

    I would pay her father 3 cows 2 pigs and a goat for her hand in marriage!

  19. Chronological c says:

    18th century: 5 layers of clothing 5 minutes
    21st century: one layer of clothes an hour

    Somethings not right here
