“BEST BIB & TUCKER” means one’s best clothes. The term’s first printed use was in 1747 in the translation of the Marquis d’Argens’ ambitiously titled work, New Memoirs Establishing a True Knowledge of Mankind: “The Country-woman minds nothing on Sundays so much as her best Bib and Tucker.” Both bibs and tuckers were women’s clothing items in use from the 17th to the 19th centuries. Tuckers were lace, modesty pieces fitted into the bodice of a dress. Early bibs were used by women much like tuckers but were frilled. A shirt with a frilled front was also worn by men.
