Why do women's clothes button from left to right which is opposite to men's clothes?
Women's clothes button the opposite of men's clothes because of
old traditions when women were dressed by their mothers or nannies.
It becomes easier to button when in reverse.
A woman's blouse buttons the opposite of men's clothing because
of when women were evailed certain rights in history. When women
were allowed to ride horses it was proper for a lady to ride side
saddle. Thus she always rode on the left side. This caused a
woman's blouse to come open in the wind. So the blouse was changed
to button opposite as not to be obscene.
