Traditional costumes of Myanmar consist of two sets, one for men and one for Burmese women. The traditional costume of the men is called Longchy (sewing pants and tight pants) combined perfectly with the shirt or jacket called Taipon (traditional clothes). The “dresses” for men are different in size, suitable any shapes of the body. There is one interesting thing is that men’s dress was strapless and tied with a simple operation; therefore, they often have to adjust the skirt when they move frequently. Longchy has no pockets, so if they want to carry cash, mobile phone or other personal items, they have to put it outside and around the skirt.

Burmese women’s traditional clothes are Thummy. Thummy is similar to Laos or Thailand’s dress. Both Burmese women and men wear flip-flops. Besides the traditional costume, Myanmar people wear European clothes in many occasions and when they wear suits, they wear shoes.
