I was born slightly before the 1980's so I've been there. I still regret I was born too late to fully appreciate it. Spending the 1990's as a teenager was fucking depressing.
1880's would have been interesting, but it depends into what class I'd be born into. Not to mention if I'd still be willful and stubborn enough to be a Woman Of My Own. My prime would be the earliest 20th century, though, so at least the start of indoor plumbing will be something to look forward to.
But the disfigurement caused by corsets would be a deal-breaker, despite how much better the styles were for my figure.
