The History of the Flapper, Part 3: The Rectangular Silhouette

Hello everyone, no sooner do I share Part 2 than Part 3 on the history of the flapper is already out.  This one talks about the undergarments that were used to help flappers gain a rectangular shape.  Although my thesis heavily involved travel clothing of the 1920s and the advice surrounding what to where when on the road, little is mentioned of undergarments beyond what materials they should be made of as advised by travel writers during that time.  Wonder what that material was?  Take a guess here and check Facebook or Twitter on Sunday for the answer.  While you wait, read Part 3 at the link below.  Enjoy!

  1. My guess is the new artificial silk, Rayon, due it being lightweight.
