Patterned after the 16th C. Italian ladies' underwear which are part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume collection (inset photo), our "ladies' braies" are split waist to waist through the crotch. The opening falls together while standing providing full coverage, and the mid-thigh length leg prevents chafing. The split crotch design allows the wearer to use the privy while wearing the braies, eliminating the need to lower and raise undergarments under bulky period gown skirts.
