Why is it so surprising that they'd be shaped like modern bras? It's like when people see the ruins of Roman baths and marvel that toilet seats haven't changed shape for thousands of years.

It's not like the ancients had cube-shaped boobs and conical asses or anything...

Powerful username video sync going on here.

This is from last year, actually. My Medieval Women students got a kick out of that story.

And whoseoever unhook this bra shall be crowned King of England!

And it's nice to hear someone is teaching the disturbingly elderly women in our society. Though by now I'd almost call them zombies. Have you had them checked for that, by the way?

Also, the PC term is "Historical Babes," I would have thought as someone in academia you would be aware of that.

Also, are you Hooper X in disguise?

The Mothership
Was Hooper X a professor of medieval history too? Not the same person, I'm afraid. Also, I manage to work sundry B&T references into my lectures.

He does a lot of gender studies courses.

They show those antique panties but, in their embarrassment, can't mention them.

It's Ayla's lingerie.

Seriously, I would think the medieval thong would be more newsworthy. As far as I knew, medieval women didn't even wear underwear period because of hygiene standards making it likely you'd just get thrush from wearing it.

And a thong in particular seems...impractical. That's a far more recent invention as its acceptable to show more and more skin. Is there a point to wearing ass-floss under heavy robes and gowns? Is there a sexy medieval calendar I'm unaware of?

It's hard to tell if that's a thong or more like the bottom of a bikini where the strings are tied on each hip.

As for the point, there are several possibilities I can think of:

1. It's worn not for comfort, but to appeal to a spouse/lover. It's not like impractical clothing weren't all over the place (and still are today).
2. This medieval woman probably didn't toil or labor as much, or this was worn when she wasn't doing anything so strenuous. Not all medieval women were peasants.
3. Perhaps there were times where you weren't wearing loads of heavy gowns and wanted to have another layer for warmth or comfort. I could also see it being used as a means of controlling odor, especially if it was perfumed.
