Fijian women and changing dress

Courtesy of Rod Ewin's excellent website, the Fiji Museum, and oceania-ethnographica, here are a few examples of the changing dress of Fijian women - from the liku to cotton cloth.

It reminds me of my childhood and we all had to wear cotton clothes but partial nudity was not a big deal.
For formal occasions and going to church, we dress up neatly, often in white and some colour. At other times people usually dress very casually wearing old second-hand clothes or working clothes.
