Brief History of Chemises
The chemises that you can obtain from here have a long history. They were developed from Roman Tunica and gained popularity in Europe in the medieval times. Women would wear a shift or chemise under their gowns or robes. In the eighteenth century, they were worn as undergarments. They were only underwear until the end of Regency Period in 1820. Besides, it used to be the only piece of clothing, which would be regularly washed. In 1810, the term ‘chemise’ also started using for the outer garments. In the western world, using chemises as undergarments became out of trend in 20th century, and some other costumes took their place. In late 20th century and early 21st century, they became the fashion statements. Moreover, several styles of chemises have been developed during this era. Some new styles came in the limelight, plus some old styles were rejuvenated. The available renaissance and medieval dresses are also part of this fashion. New innovations have been added to these chemises with the changing fashion trends. Some modern dressing styles are also being added to make these dresses more flamboyant. Moreover, the blend of one or two genres also adds a lot to these costumes.
