What Are Some Types of Clothing That Start With the Letter I?

Two types of clothing that start with the letter “I” are “Intimates” and “Indian headdress.” Intimates are women’s clothing, which are typically worn to cover the skin beneath outer garments. A Native American’s ornamental head covering, which is worn during a ceremonial function or war, is called the Indian headdress.

Intimates serve various purposes, such as concealing a woman’s intimate parts and reducing the friction of outer garments against the skin. Examples of intimates are brassieres, thongs and G-strings.

The Indian headdress, which is symbolic of a specific Native American tribe, is usually made of feathers. Each feather represents the Indian warrior’s brave deed. The headdress is only made after sufficient feathers have been gathered.
