"By the 1920s trains were generally light-weight and much less fussy which allowed a more elegant line. However, in contrast to pre-war fashions which favoured stays and corsets and all manner of rigid undergarments to force the body into a more curvaceous feminine shape, it is apparent that the flapper-style dress did not flatter women whose own bearing could not carry it off.
