Medieval Dresses for LARP and Medieval Markets

For the visit of a medieval market or the representation of a LARP character with medieval background, the choice of the appropriate medieval dress is indispensable. Because this is not only part of the basic equipment, but also significantly shapes your outfit as the most eye-catching piece of clothing.

In the early Middle Ages, women's robes were very simple: Until the eleventh century, women often wore a long undergarment, which in many cases was made of linen. The garment was supplemented by an overdress or an apron, which is characteristic for Viking dresses.

In addition to simple medieval dresses, Leonardo Carbone offers a versatile selection of body-hugging cuts that reflect the High and Late Middle Ages. Long, wide outer garments and lacing were considered extremely popular and shaped the fashion at this medieval time.

Medieval dresses for noblewomen and peasant women

Noblewomen and peasant women wore their dresses not only as garments. At the same time, the dresses indicated the status of women by their specific cut. Nobles in the Middle Ages mainly resorted to dresses that had wide and long arms. The lower class, on the other hand, wore dresses with tight sleeves in the Middle Ages, as they were much more practical for daily work.

At Leonardo Carbone you will find a wide variety of cuts, colors and materials, so you can put together the garb for your LARP character or a visit to the medieval market optimally.

From simple peasant dresses to noble medieval dresses 

We offer you a wide range of designs in different colour combinations and fabrics. Breathtaking floor-length noble medieval dresses with or without border provide for an elegant appearance. Various headgear or bags go with it. Our short-sleeved summer dresses are available in light fabrics such as cotton or cotton/linen and are colourful in red, blue, green or simply in natural or black. If you want to combine a simple underdress with a viking apron you will find in our leather corner brown or black leather belts that can be combined with leather bags. The icing on the cake for this outfit are our leather shoes, which are essential for a complete costume.

Medieval dresses for ladies: From the time of the Vikings to the late Middle Ages.

A medieval dress is always inspired by the particular era. At the time of the Vikings, in the High and Late Middle Ages, the medieval garb for ladies therefore turned out differently. While a Viking lady rarely wore a distinguished medieval dress in the early Middle Ages, this changed in the late Middle Ages, when part of the Vikings went native.


However, medieval garb was not only based on the era, but also on the status of the wearer. Thus, middle-class ladies wore rather simple medieval dresses, which were kept in natural colors and were increasingly tight-fitting. This cut made daily chores easier, as the medieval dress did not hinder the ladies. Noble ladies, on the other hand, wore splendid and ornate medieval dresses, whose colors turned out more brightly and often had wide sleeves.


LARP medieval dresses for ladies

If you want to visit a medieval market or authentically embody a female LARP character, the medieval dress is part of the basic equipment. The medieval dress determines a large part of your medieval garb and complements it as the most eye-catching element. Depending on the medieval background of your LARP character, you can choose from different cuts, colors and decorations. Whether you're a peasant woman or a noblewoman, you're sure to find the right medieval dress at Leonardo Carbone to bring your character to life authentically.



Undergarments and outer garments for a medieval dress.

In the Middle Ages, the medieval dress was not worn as a simple garment, but was complemented by the appropriate undergarments and outer garments. Until the eleventh century, long undergarments made of linen were especially popular, which were extended by an overdress or an apron. In the High and Late Middle Ages, undergarments and outer garments with lacing also found favor.


The undergarments and outer garments worn by a lady in the Middle Ages not only served as pure medieval garb, but also gave an indication of the wearer's respective status through their cut and color. While the nobility mainly used red and green colors and wide sleeves, the lower class found tight sleeves and natural colors more practical.

A medieval dress forms the most striking feature of your medieval garb. To make your entire outfit authentic, it is also recommended to complement it with the matching accessories.
