Baroque is a historical period and artistic movement that was manifested in Europe about from about 1600 to 1750. The word "baroque" probably comes from the Portuguese. It is a French transliteration of the Portuguese phrase "pérola barroca", which means "irregular pearl". This phrase was used in 16th century.
Baroque dresses ladies were characterized by flamboyance, lightness and decorativeness. Slim waist was fashionable again; therefore corsets were also starting to use again. One kilogram of fish bones was used for production of one corset. Skirts were formed by structure of steel designed to their support. Girth of skirts got bigger. Skirts were sewn from many fabrics and were made in detail and richly decorated. Rich women wore dresses from the most expensive fabrics, such as brocade or silk.
