Now, onto this week’s historical fun fact -- featuring … bed time!
I had a few options this week but will tell you a bit about what people wore to sleep in the Regency era. Both men and women wore a nightshirt or nightgown. For women, this typically looked like a slightly longer chemise, coming down just under the knees. Overtop, women often wore a bed jacket or other layer, if they needed to be warmer. The bed jacket was simply a loose-fitting cotton shirt. Night caps were also often worn either for warmth or to keep hair from becoming messed during sleep. Men would wear a shirt as well to bed, and around the house would add breeches and a dressing gown, or banyan, which was basically a robe they would wear around the house and with family only.
