Flappers (Roaring ’20s)
The Flapper style of the 1920s was a huge shift from that Gibson Girl image. These ladies had short hairdos, hats, and loose dresses that hid the waistline. During this period, the government ratified the 19th Amendment, allowing women to vote!
Margaret became Miss America in 1921. People thought she had the ideal body type at the time. Seemingly boyish, she was long and lean, which was a big shift from that hourglass figure in the previous decade.
