1800 ca. Sleeveless Chemise or Nightgown of white cotton and lace. #Regency #Fashion #underclothing

1800 ca. Sleeveless Chemise or Nightgown of white cotton and lace. via National Trust Collections, UK. 

Definition Chemise or Shift: Sleeveless, or small sleeve, mid-calf length undergarment usually of linen worn next to skin & under corset. Sometimes doubled as nightshift. 

From around 1700, women wore a long garment, like a man’s shirt, next to their skin, day and night. ‘Costume In England’ describes this as originally a shirt or smock and adopted by women as an undergarment. 

This undergarment fell from their shoulders to calves, and was called a chemise, shift, or vest. During the day, it was worn under stays, or a corset, and at night it could be worn as a nightshirt. The rich and the upper classes wore embroidered and otherwise decorated versions of this simple linen or cotton shift. Other classes of women wore a very simple version with little or no decoration as they had no time for decorative embroidery and no money to buy silk threads. Wealthier women could afford specific bedroom attire, but lower and working class women wouldn’t have had this luxury and so wore a chemise as both an undergarment and as sleepwear.

Want To Know More About Georgian Era Men’s Fashions? Try History Notes Book 2 By Suzi Love. Fashion Men 1700s Late. books2read.com:suziloveFashMen1700s

What was fashionable for men in the late 1700s? Extravagant colors and fabrics and outrageous styles. Take a look at their suits, hats, accessories and bedroom fashions.

Strictly speaking, the Georgian Era might include all the years that a ‘King George’ ruled in England, but for the purposes of this book the ‘Georgian Era’ is primarily the late 1700s when mad King George III ruled. His son became Prince Regent in the early 1800s, therefore creating the years known as the Regency, and became George IV on the death of his father.

  • The Georgian years officially ended with the death of King George IV in 1830.
  • George I ruled 1714-1727
  • George II ruled 1727-1760
  • George III ruled 1760-1820
  • George IV ruled 1820-1830
