In response to Low necklines, written by Bethany on August 27, 1998 at 21:05:12
] Did women in Jane's time really wear such low necklines as were worn by women in the movies "Sense & Sensibilty" and "Emma"?
They could be pretty low (depending on exact year and circumstances), but lower necklines actually tended to be associated with formal or semi-formal indoor eveningwear; some of the movies (I seem to remember P&P2) have been criticsied for making it appear as if they were worn all the time everyday...
