Reforming Women's Fashion, 1850-1920: Politics, Health, and Art, Patricia Cunningham

1 Reforming Women's Fashion, 1850-1920: Politics, Health, and Art
Patricia Cunningham
264 pages, Kent State University Press
The first comprehensive study of women's dress reform.
During the latter half of the nineteenth and the first decade of the twentieth centuries, books, periodicals, and newspapers were rich in discussions related to women's roles, health, beauty, and dress. Many believed that restrictive and unwieldy women's fashions compromised health, distorted women's true physical beauty, and curtailed the potential role of women in society. Reforming Women's Fashion, 1850-1920 focuses on the efforts toward reforming women's dress that took place in Europe and America during this period and the types of garments adopted by women to overcome the challenges posed by fashionable dress.
