Scope note
Reform dress was a reaction to the perceptions of discomfort surrounding women's clothing at the end of the 19th century. These movements campaigned in different countries to ban the corset, garters, tight bodices, and the train. Dress reformers championed garments that do not restrain the body, but let it move freely, during both work and leisure.
