Many Incroyables were "nouveaux riches" who had gained their wealth from selling arms and money lending. Members of the ruling classes were also among the movement's leading figures, and the group heavily influenced the politics, clothing, and arts of the period. They emerged from the muscadins, a term for dandyish anti-Jacobin street gangs in Paris from 1793 who were important politically for some two years; the terms are often used interchangeably, though the muscadins were of the…

We think that these stays date from the first half of the 18th century, and that they were worn by a child 2 to 3 years old. Letters and diaries of the time show that little girls as young as 3 wore stays like this up to about 1750.

"Wrapping gowns were a form of daytime clothing worn by babies and young children between about 1700 and 1800. They were loose fitting, but often worn with a sash around the waist. The adoption of wrapping gowns and other similar garments for children as daywear was probably influenced by Asian clothing given to the families of those who had trade links with the region. Lord Shelburnes two year old son Lord Fitmaurice had a jummer (jama) of flowered gauze over blue silk in 1768."
