In 1881 the Rational Dress Society was formed which called for dramatic changes to Victorian fashion. The Rational Dress Society thought no woman should have to wear more than seven pounds of underwear. The figure actually halved what had been worn by most women in 1850, when ladies often wore up to 14 pounds of undergarments. The goal was to introduce fashion that would neither deform the figure, nor prevent movement. This led to the development of bloomers.
