In ancient Egypt, both sexes wore robes called kalasiris by Herodotus. Material and cut varied over the centuries, though the cloth of choice was always linen. The kalasiris women wore might cover one or both shoulders or be worn with shoulder straps. They covered the breasts most of the time, though there were periods when fashion left them bare. While the top could reach anywhere from below the breast up to the neck, the bottom hem generally touched the calves or even the ankles. Some had short sleeves, others were sleeveless. The fit might be very tight or quite loose. They were often worn with a belt which held together the folds of cloth. -- http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/timelines/topics/clothing.htm
