Medieval dress and former customs

The impressive length of this medieval cotte is the result of the former traditions and customs. Women in the medieval period were urged to cover their calves with their historical dresses as precisely as possible. Exposing this area of a body was perceived as highly inappropriate and perverse.

Cotte – a popular historical dress

This type of medieval dress was worn both by women and men. The difference was with its length – men wore it shorter, women longer. Medieval cotte was put over a shirt and as an under garment it was rarely used as endmost layer of clothing. Usually people used another layer in a form of an outer garment.
This is the reason why cotte as a historical dress had a rather simple design.
