The different forms of negligee inherited from the 18th century continued to exist through the 19th century. Social evolution, with the bourgeoisie increasingly determining political, economic, social and cultural life, meant that a lifestyle that had hitherto been accessible only to the very privileged, was now becoming widespread. With this, the ritual of dressing and preparing oneself according to the moment of the day, or th especific activity, was a fundamental part of this development.
