In Vermont in the 1700s, women did not wear underpants. Neither did men.
And no kilts involved!
In addition, women did not wear bras. … Neither did men.
Women wore a gown. Their gown was what we would call a dress, but they called it a gown. Under their gown, they wore a shift and possibly a corset. The shift resembled a cotton nightgown. Women also slept in their shift. During the day, they often wore an apron to protect their gown.
Men wore a shirt during the day and slept in the same shirt at night.
These dressing habits were not limited to Vermont.
All in all, the 1700s were very exiting times!
