  • The boudoir cap was a must-have for women across all social classes. They were worn first thing in the morning when drinking morning tea. Advertised as 'for the smart bedroom woman', boudoir caps were widely used as they were cheap to buy or make. Essential for women in the Twenties, 'the absurdity didn't follow us into the Thirties.' (Ethel Mannin).
