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.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
