Ancient Romans wore underwear


Ancient Romans wore underwear

Ancient Romans wore underwear. They were simple hip covers, tied on both sides. Roman lingerie had several terms, which was probably due to the many shapes and forms of clothing. It was referred to as subligar, subligaculum, campestre, licium or cinctus

Women also wore simple bras in the form of tight and tightly tied bust material (fascia – under clothing) and under the bust and on clothing (strophium, mammillare, cingulum).

Linen was supposed to be made of linen, where Spanish, Syrian and Egyptian types were of exceptional quality.
