Q Why do women's shirts button on the opposite side than a man's? A Way back in Medieval times, women did not usually dress themselves. They had handmaids to help them. Therefore the dressmakers designed the garments so the buttons were in the proper position for the dressers, the person USING the buttons. The tradition continued throughout the ages and even into today's styles. Source: Wave Shoppe Hawaiian Shirts
