古代服装对妇女历史地位有参考作用。 首先，女人的特点便是她与家庭的关系，以及她们挣脱父权家长式社会的能力，从而获得本身强大的力量并产生巨大的影响。 在这系列作品中，女性生育孩子和照顾家庭的的美德能力和性别物理特性可从腰和臀的比例以及胸围上体现出来。 至于权势，可以从脖子周围的装饰褶边体现出来，这立刻让人想起伊丽莎白时代的庄严性，由透明和脆弱的织物做成的装饰褶边也说明了女性微弱的权势。 作品中的文字，引自匿名女性发布在博客中的忏悔文章。匿名女性叙述她们在工作生活中无法获得平衡的一种挫败感，如缺乏社会、工作、配偶或家人的支持以及在不失去家庭生活的比重中的挫败感。

Historical dress is overwhelmed with references to the social status of women. Women, are at once characterized by their connection to the home, and their ability to surpass assumptions by a paternalistic society to achieve great power and significance. Within this piece, the physical features of a woman’s ability to have children and exemplify domestic gender virtues are seen in the emphasis on the waist to hip ratio and the focus on the bosom. The reference to power is seen in the frill around the neck that at once suggests Elizabethan grandeur but is made of a sheer and fragile fabric commenting on women’s tenuous hold on that power. The text within the piece, are quotes from women who have anonymously posted on a confessional blog. The women relate their frustration in not achieving a balance between work and life, lack of support by society, work, spouse or family to assist in domestic concerns, and a frustration in not loosing the weight of domesticity.
