It looked really uncomfortable to be a woman in the 1900s. Besides waddling around the streets in these disfiguring contraptions - this was offset by a tight corset worn underneath. Add to that a long, heavy, frilled skirts and puffy, lacy blouses. Skirts were bell-shaped, tightly hugged the hips and flared at the bottom. And holy heck - how many ostriches died to make these hats for these women. Ostrich feathers were all the rage back in old-timey days. In 1908, a new look emerged for women. This involved tailored suits, blouses, and skirts. And remember, all this was going down during the days when woman weren't allowed to vote.
