Fucking gross. 1750-1800. The shirt was an item of underwear in the 18th century. Its purpose was to protect the outer clothing from the body in an age when daily bathing was not a common practice. Shirts were purchased in the dozens if the owner could afford them, so that a clean one could be worn every day. They were usually made of linen, a washable and durable fabric.

This bathing gown is a rare example of the survival of a complete garment worn by Martha Washington. The gown, made of blue and white linen with lead weights sown into the hem for modesty, was probably worn by Martha on a 1769 trip to the mineral waters in Berkeley Springs, Virginia. The trip was primarily for the benefit of Martha’s daughter Patsy; it was hoped the waters would help cure her epilepsy (image courtesy of Mount Vernon Ladies' Association).
