Drawers & Tap Pants
A Victorian woman started her marathon dressing session with a pair of drawers. Drawers are most often split (crotchless) and about knee length. Some drawers aren't split, and it makes you wonder how they worked, since they were under alll the other layers. Many times you'll see drawers refered to as bloomers, pantalets, or even pantaloons, which are really men's pants. Beginning around the 1920s, drawers morphed into tap pants, which had much shorter legs and a closed crotch.
