Due to the difficulty involved in putting on a toga, wealthy Romans often employed a vestiplicus, being a slave, whose sole puspose would be to aid their masters in their dress.

Being a slave, the vestiplicus himself would not have to worry about wearing a toga , since this garment was allowed only to Roman citizens. If the slave were to win his freedom in some way, he could gain the right to wear this garment.
