The Nobility - The popular image that we have of Renaissance costume particularly that of England is what was worn by the upper classes. Style was paramount, and both men and women in the Renaissance wore clothing we would consider costumes, similar to the 'costumes' we wear in formal occasions today. To the modern eye, Renaissance costume appears to be highly constrictive and extremely uncomfortable. This is true, but only because we tend to associate the formal clothing of the nobility with the period.
This is natural, as most of the examples we have of Renaissance clothing are from paintings and written descriptions. Historians and artists generally do not record the activities of the poor.
The Poor - Clothing in the Renaissance for everyday became less like 'costumes', both in formal and daily wear as you went lower in the class system. Where a lady of the aristocracy might expect to wear a corset as a near requirement, except when in her chambers, a merchant's wife might wear a bodice that was heavily boned, but no underlying corset, giving her more freedom of movement. Going lower still, a peasant woman would have a single color, plain boned bodice.
We have medieval and renaissance dresses, gowns, shirts and hats that come in a variety of styles, shapes, sizes and colors. To keep you warm during that cold medieval faire we have medieval cloaks, capes and robes. Finally we have period footwear like leather boots, suede boots and dress shoes to keep your feet warm and to add the final touches to your medieval outfit. We have styles for any occasion, whether you want to be an authentic peasant at the fair, a princess bride, the village idiot, or even the King, you are sure to find something here.
