Regency Fashion: Dumpy Lady

Cabrio4 from eBay always sells the nicest Regency fashion plates. Her description of this lady and her companion made me laugh.
"Here we have two delightfully dumpy ladies in Morning Dresses from February."

Well, better to be delightfully dumpy than just plain dumpy.

If you took away her huge fur muff she might not look so dumpy!

If they are Ladies and dumpy, they are probably well fed and rich, a nice place to be during that time !
