Nicola Coughlan reveals side effects of wearing Bridgerton dresses

You will burn (the sun) for this inner look Bridgerton season three.

Nicholas Coughlanwho plays the character of Penelope Featherington in the Netflix period drama, shared the unexpected memory cast members get when they wear Regency dresses in the Bridgerton establish. The answer? A particularly unfortunate sunburn where vintage dresses expose their necks and breasts.

“And so…Bridgertan* is back,” Nicola joked on Instagram Stories on July 29. “You get sunburn when you wear a regency dress.”

So the costume grants a painful side effect. But that’s not to say Nicola’s character won’t look stunning in season three. In fact, a July 20 teaser video announcing the production of the third season gave fans a glimpse of Penelope’s striking brilliance. While Penelope has always been a beauty, the character has made some changes to her previous appearance, including an intricate hairstyle paired with glamorous makeup.

And her beauty routine isn’t the only thing that changes. In May, Nicola shared that the third season is “going to be very different” from the previous ones.
