Trends The
20's Post-War Fashion Social customs and morals were relaxed due to the end of WWI ad a booming stock market. Women became a huge part of the American workforce, shifting the balance of the usual society. Fashion changed and became more accessible. This was the beginning of something no one had ever seen before. Womenswear The Boyish Figure The desired figure for a women was very different in the 20's. Undergarments were made to give women a flat chest and flat hips, which was considered desirable. A muscular form was a plus. The Flapper The flapper dress is usually connected to the 1920's. It flattened the breasts and straightened the waist. A girl wearing one of these dresses would usually be thought to be rebellious or showing disdain for what was considered acceptable behavior. But there are other meanings to the word flapper, much to the confusion of the girls who had no knowledge of these sometimes old, underlying messages.
