Mediaeval armour

Today I learned that Armour in mediaeval times had some quite strange accents from today’s perspective. They tended to have an extra small waist because hat was considered a male attribute as well as having extra off-showing areas on the lower front-side of those armours.

I came across those seemingly random facts while checking for Skyrim mods. One of the YouTube videos suggested was “Female Armour: Fantasy vs. Reality”, which provided those insights.
