Chemises Hoop Skirts

Just because you are going to dress in medieval or Renaissance fashions does not mean you have to be uncomfortable. Ladies, pick up one of Dark Knight Armourys medieval and Renaissance chemises, bloomers, or hoop skirts to add that traditional look and shape to your medieval or Renaissance outfit without sacrificing any level of personal comfort. A chemise is basically a shirt worn next to the skin, often used as a sort of undershirt or shift for women in medieval or Renaissance styled fashion. We have full length gown chemises, waist length chemises, short sleeved chemises, bell sleeved chemises, long sleeved chemises, and all manner of other styles and color options. Chemises can be used as a classic undershirt, or can be paired with a bodice or corset for a classic pirate wench look. You can even wear our chemises off the shoulder. It really just depends on how sassy you are feeling! Hoop skirts are another of our offered items that are great for adding shape and style to your medieval or Renaissance look. They are the perfect choice for creating that authentic silhouette that is associated with period dress. And of course, we also offer a number of comfortable bloomers that can be worn under any skirt as well. If you are looking for period accurate underclothing, you have found it.
