A short coat or garment without sleeves, worn under the coat, extending no lower than the hips, and covering the waist; a vest: a similar garment formerly worn by women. "You'd best come like a mad woman with a band on your waistcoat."-Dekker. "Waistcoat was a part of female dress as well as male. It was only when the waistcoat was worn without a gown or upper dress that it was considered the mark of a mad or profligate woman. Low females of the latter class were generally so attired."-Nares.
