This first comprehensive study of women's dress reform considers the many advocates for reform and thoroughly examines their motives, their arguments for change, and how they promoted improvements in women's fashion. Drawing on a broad variety of primary and secondary sources, this volume will make a significant contribution to costume studies, social history, and women's studies.
