Always Wondered

Have you ever wondered why are the buttons for female and male clothes on different sides?


According to legend, the different sides for male and female buttons come from a time when men dressed themselves, while women were dressed by servants. Since most people were right-handed and it was deemed easier to use a button if the opening faced your dominant hand, clothiers designed the buttons so men could easily button themselves up, while the servants could easily button up women.
