When cremation isn't recognize yet traditional of burial is served. Corpse is dressed and maked-up so it'll be comfortable to look at and to make the corpse feel good ( as what we believe). I had a movie marathon last weekend and a thought crossed my mind , does corpse have fashion? They have simple suit which is often a white long sleeve and a slacks pants. Others are wearing tuxedo or their cultural heritage dress. What about in your place can you observed different fashionable dress or dress codes for corpse?

Not that I call it a dress code but more of a special dress, one final dress that the corpse will be able to wear. And so, it usually looks formal or elegant. Yes, typically, the national costume is worn, if not a tux. The corpse would not mind if it was dressed in T-shirt or denims but the bereaved ones choose to use a more decent attire, in respect to the deceased beloved.

corpse whose dressed with t-shirts and denim are those thrown away..lolz. I haven't seen a corpse like that...Though at first we may say it's the choice of family members but it is actually the mindset of people , to dress them with a decent attire.
