The babydoll dress, has a rich history. A skirt ending above the knee along with an empire waist defines the construction of the dress. The evolution of the dress is anchored in gender politics. The babydoll dress has become intertwined with female liberation. The dress broke away from female fashion restrictions of the distance past such as strict rules regarding dress length and the corset. Famed designer Cristobal Balenciaga began his development of the baby doll dress in 1958. Balenciaga expanded upon and introduced the piece in multiple iterations throughout his career. Today women continue to enjoy the liberated feel and beautiful design of the babydoll dress. You’ll see that the look has evolved somewhat – we are featuring some babydoll looks with a more fitted bodice. Whatever the variation, we are sure you will enjoy these items. Look, click, spin, shop, and enjoy!
