As readers of regency romance, I know you are well aware of the beautiful gowns and dress styles. If you could, would you love to dress in such styles, or do you prefer simply reading about them?

I much prefer my sweats and t-shirts. The typical woman in the regency era, such as Olivia in my upcoming novel, wore a chemise, stays, drawers, petticoat, stockings, garter, and the dress itself.
