Strictly female attire in Western fashion, a dress is basically a large shirt or tunic with the waist or the entire upper half of the garment half-fitted or fitted while the lower half can be loose or tight (which inhibits the ability to walk).
The lower half, or skirt, ranges in length from above the knees to the floor.
"Skirt" comes from "skyrta", an old Norse word for "shirt", so it seems appropriate to call an entire dress a skirt and not just the lower half.
Skirt is also slang for a woman, often one who is morally loose.
The skirt was once practically a gender-neutral garment before the Rennaissance; men and women wore togas and tunics and nobody said anything about it, and leggings were worn beneath for warmth. Now skirts are limited to women, unless you count the kilt, which looks absolutely stunning!
An undergarment, first coming to view in the Rennaissance, that women have worn to mangle their natural body into the shape of an hourglass: corsets pinched the waist in, pushed the breasts up, and rearranged the spine and abdominal organs.
The corset used to be made of whalebone for support, but it now comes in a variety of fabrics.
Women have had many health problems and have died from the restrictive, impractical corset; many homes in the Victorian era had fainting rooms for women who had been laced up too tightly.
Nowadays, the corset is popular among the gothic crowd and has become a symbol of erotica.
-"Do I have to wear this corset? I can hardly breathe."
-"This is a period film; yes, you have to wear the corset."
-"This thing hurts like hell! Are you crazy?"
A slang term for masturbation
"I saw a nerd play Warhammer at the Rennaissance Faire."
A hairstyle that involves completely or almost completely arranging hair on top of the head, for example crown braids, buns, ponytails, etc.
The woman at the Rennaissance Fair wore an intricate updo.

The largest city in western Kentucky's Jackson Purchase region, and the only significant city in Kentucky who's name is of native american origin. Has alot of character for a town it's size, even having it's own Symphony Orchestra. Paducah once had a light rail system, as all significant cities once did, now has a bus system. The founder of Dr Pepper was from here, and the first factory was in the nearby suburb of Lone Oak (also the hometown of Jeri Ryan).
Paducah has long had a significant jewish community, which was periodically evacuated during the civil War.
Lower Town, which borders downtown to the northeast is Paducah's fine arts district. Once a slummy red light district with crackhouses, meth labs and crime, but thanks to the artist relocation program, artists from as far as NYC, San Fransisco, Hawaii and Paris France have relocated here and have fixed up the dilapidated old mansions which were often sold for less than $10 apiece. This is where the Yeiser Art Center and many galleries are.
Paducah Is finally being reborn, like a phoenix from the ashes.
