for the people who ask, what did they do when they had their periods: 1. there was probably more female underwear around in the middle ages than is generally shown. Male researchers don't like the idea of it and there's very little research into it. 2. Consider that women in the past were on their periods FAR LESS OFTEN than we are today. A woman has no period when she is pregnant and neither when she is breastfeeding a baby (for a certain time, after which fertility returns and the possibility to become pregnant and with this periods start again even if she can keep breastfeeding the first child). There was no contraception available then so women would have had babies very often. Also when your nutrition is lacking, girls mature phyisically later in life than today and if the nutrition situation is very bad and you're starving, your period stops. this effect is known in modern women when they suffer from anorexia. Frequent times of starvation might sadly have been a regular experience for many people in the middle ages. 3. underwear, also for men, could be constructed in a very simple way (a cloth and a string...) and it's not far fetched to say that women could fashion something to wear a rag between their legs during the period.

imagine 14th century women watching 21st century women getting dressed. This is a pair of panties use as under garments, sometimes women could also wear tongs under their low waist jeans...

And now they have an ISSUE if a Muslim women or girl wears hijab or head covering. It's a religious thing and is for modesty....

Personally I think these women are way more beautiful in their chaste apparel than the girls who go out in spandex and a tank top. I want to enjoy your face and not have to fight the urge to look at your body! Save your curves for your spouse. That applies to both men and women. The idea that promiscuity is sexual freedom is a new and deceitful idea. Our bodies are beautiful and can be enjoyed beautifully, and it’s a shame that they are defiled by our culture

Can you guys make a series of videos showing what nuns from different periods of time wore? I've been very interested in the lives of nuns from the past. Even as someone who practices Judaism, I find some of the catholic aesthetic beautiful.

I was born in the late 1940s in England and nobody would go out or be seen dead, without their heads covered by a hat or scarf, this carried on and ended in the 60s for whatever reason I don’t know, but I still love to wear a hat or headwrap/scarf.

How many layers they wear in winter then? It seems every layer is very thin and the head piece as well.

What the hell did they wear in summer, there’s no way they walked around like that, they would have gotten a heat stroke.
Mina the fiddler (1 day ago)
one layer less. Plus, the weather didn't get as warm then as it does now, it's called the Little Ice Age. Indoors, specially in a building made of heavy stones, it remains cold, even in summer. I've tried it. ;)

Oh my god, I wish I could just tell all the people who think that they'd overheat in those clothes that linen and wool is much more breathable than modern clothing. Essentially today we're wearing plastic bags over our skin. Think about it, when you sleep in your beds, you place the blankets with the most polyurethane plastic on top because that is much more heat reflective than the cotton blankets. Also, for all of you people saying that it must have been dreadfully uncomfortable and hot, think about it for a minute. Do you really think that your ancestors were so stupid that they'd go about wearing clothes that would give them heatstrokes? Really? No. People haven't changed since then. We always preferred comfort to discomfort. One more thing to consider. Ever heard of Muslims? Look at how they dress in Saudi Arabia. You understand it's pretty hot in Saudi Arabia, right? See, when you don't wear polyurethane plastic all the time, your clothing is much more breathable. They're not dropping dead from heat stroke in the desert, your ancestors in Europe wouldn't drop dead either.
Mina the fiddler (1 day ago)
+Milk Boy that's the main point. I've worn medieval clothing for the length of two to three days several times. And yes when it's hot, three layers of linnen is hot. But it wouldn't get that hot outside very often. Also inside an ancient building, specially if it's a castle made with thick stone walls, it's pretty chilly even in summer.
Milk Boy (9 days ago)
Also, the weather and temperature was very different in those times. Europe had experienced a mini ice age for a while. The people from the past dressed accordingly to what the temperature was.
Lily Chu (18 days ago)
Yes. High-qualify natural fabrics are not cheap though. I splurged on two pairs of well-cut linen pants a while ago and during hot weather, they are cooler than wearing shorts while keeping my skin protected and appropriate for non-casual settings. However, the cost/ wear worked out very well for me: I found myself wearing them more often than cheaper clothes because they were so comfortable.
Camelya Goh (1 month ago)
+Pi for breakfastits better to cover yourself in the heat with breathable clothes as sun protection than taking on the sun head on. I live in southeast asia and ppl working hard labour will don some sort of hat or mask.

Ro Bastard, last summer, I wore long cotton dresses and a thin white long sleeved cotton blouse as sun protection. I can tell you I was a million times cooler than when I wore shorts and a tank top. I was so much more comfortable. Add a straw hat and I was able to step outside during the hottest days of summer. No disgusting sun block clogging my skin, too, making me hotter. This was 35*C weather in the shade.

Do you know how difficult thick, curly hair would have been to keep like that?
I seriously wouldn't mind this if I lived in Europe where it never got too hot. I like a lot of loose layers and dresses (though I don't much wear them as other things are more covenient at the moment). Although I tend to prefer to the light loose Roman/Greek style tunics, obviously more fitted to their climate. I could do previous centuries easily, clothes wise. As long as I wasn't a slave, I would be fine. And, if I was a slave, not that I'd love it, but not all slave-owners were terrible. Maybe I could find a way to buy my freedom. But I'd just as soon prefer if I was an average, free person, even if I was a servant. Freedom kinda matters.

Resting Funeral Face (12 days ago)
Everyone commenting about it seems to have never learned that from 1300 to 1870 we were literally in an ice age. It made sense to need so many layers during the year. Now with global warming weather is increasingly extreme on both scales- hotter summers and colder winters mean wearing the same style of clothing all year round is totally unfeasible. Setting aside people's opinions on ThE SkAnKy MoDeRn ClOtHiNg, even people who dress in historic clothing for a living or as a hobby can find it extremely difficult to keep temperature regulated wearing completely period accurate clothes- it's just meant for entirely different weather than what we have now.
