The task of medieval underwear
was to isolate the body from the outer woollen clothes
- it was the only element of garments that was regularly washed. Usually it was made of linen, for wealthier users of silk, and in the late part of the Middle Ages of cotton. It is a basic and inseparable part of medieval clothing
. Medieval men's linen
consists of a shirt
(bracca) and sometimes an underwear belt, and medieval women's linen
consists of a long shirt
Medieval shirt made of linen is an essential part of medieval underwear for
men. Together with braies it makes a basic set for reenactors who start
completing their historical costumes.
