Review Warner examines a heretofore untapped area of US social history: how informal clothing developed in the 1800s in response to middle-class leisure activities, competitive sports, and attitudes related to health. With wit and personal anecdotes, she reveals the rationale for the evolution in fashions from body-restricting women's Victorian styles to loose, comfortable, informal modern wear. ... This pioneering work should spawn further women's history studies. --Choice

From the Back Cover "This will be the book on women and sport clothing and will no doubt open the doors for additional research on the topic. . . . Patricia Warner has long been considered the expert in this field and numerous scholars have been anxiously awaiting the publication of this book."--Gayle V. Fischer, author of "Pantaloons and Power: A Nineteenth-Century Dress Reform in the United States"
