In the 1920's, curvy was not the ideal body anymore. Instead, it was a more boyish figure. Therefore women weren't forcing their waists in and popping their butts out with giant hoop skirts under their dresses. They hid their figures with short dresses and bandaged their chests. #rothzroom

FlappersFlappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms.
