Ancient Roman Dress

I think the following website pretty much says it all on the subject. :-)

Hmmm...interesting to see the Byzantine dress and how it's closer to my idea of Medieval dress. Yet you can see how it evolved from the Roman dress...

Absolutely. :-)

In Nero's time, it was fashionable for women to wear entirely transparent dresses and no other clothing. Paradoxically, if not perhaps surprisingly, it was lust that brought an end to the fashion: Seneca wrote that it ended because women no longer had anything to show their lovers in the bedroom that they hadn't already seen on the streets.
