  4. 5. Flirting With Fans <ul><li>On hot days, beautifully decorated fans were used as portable air-conditioners, but women also used them to flirt with men. </li></ul><ul><li>Fans were used to send signals without speaking.

  5. 6. Underclothing <ul><li>A shift was worn next to the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>A corset made of linen, cotton, or silk was worn. They were stiffened with either wire, whalebone, or wood.

  6. 7. Why all the Pain? <ul><li>Women often laced their corset tight which was uncomfortable and dangerous. </li></ul><ul><li>The lack of air could sometimes result in fainting. </li></ul><ul><li>This was done because very small waists were a fashion. </li></ul>

  9. 10. Women’s Modesty <ul><li>Women of the 1700s did not feel comfortable wearing low-cut dresses. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of this, handkerchiefs, modesty pieces, buffons, and frills called ruffs were worn around the neck. </li></ul>
  10. 11. Warming the Hands <ul><li>Women wore gloves made of leather or silk usually at elbow length. </li></ul><ul><li>They also placed their hands in a short tube of fur or other material called a muff. </li></ul>
