Tudor Clothes

What did Tudor women wear?

Rich Tudor women would have worn big dresses that covered all their bodies. The dresses would have been made out of expensive and rare materials like silk or Velvet.

Poor women would have had to wear cheap dresses made out of wool, linen or sheepskin to show their rank in society.

All women would have to hide their hair once they got married .

How did the clothes you wore, show what rank in society?
In Tudor times, if you were rich you could wear clothes made out of silk, velvet, satin and sable fur. You could also wear colours like purple, gold or silver.
If you were poor you had to wear dull clothes that were made out of cheap materials.
That way people just had to look at someone to know what rank in society they were!

What kind of underwear did people wear?
Both rich men and women wore corsets!
