Victorian Ghosts, 1852-1907: EN 4573 Collection


Translated directly from French, décolleté means cleavage, or low cut around the neck. In this case, it’s likely the text’s intentions means to say the shepherdesses don low neck-lined clothing so that their cleavage is very visible. Citation used: “décolleté.” Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 2020, [RL]
