Question about Victorian fashion

Hi there--I just joined today! I am reading A.S. Byatt's new book, "The Children's Book," and there is a line where a man thinks the main character is not comfy iin corsets etc., and that she probably wears "rational dress" or a "Liberty gown" at home.

Can anyone tell me what that is? What did it mean to do so? Any links to photos would also be great! Thanks!
