Medieval female fashion

There is no such thing as one, all-purpose medieval female costume. In the Late Medieval period, between 13th and 15th century, medieval dress and other garments were undergoing numerous changes. Clothing in 13th century, medieval dresses primarily, was usually loose and not fitted to the body ( cotte , surcoat ). Around the middle of 14th century, medieval dress started to change and became well-fitted ( cotehardie , Burgundian dress ). Since the end of 14th century, women's outer garments started to appear again, very spacious, with a cloche-cut and fastened with a belt under breasts ( houppelande , robe ). Such medieval dresses were used among other kinds of garments ( cotehardie ), together creating a wide range of medieval female clothing . This section gives you a chance to choose from a full selection of medieval fashion for women.

We offer you both casual wear and court clothing. What is more, you can find here a wide range of medieval woolen coats , indispensable during cold, windy days.
