    "The beauty Ideal of the time was to be flat and have no boobs whatsoever."
    What? Why? This seems to contradict what men desire.

    One of the benefits of space operas over period pieces is all the costumes are inherently accurate to a time created by the designers. Plus all the potential for allegories & extrapolating styles out a few centuries seems super fun.

    There are a couple vintage-inspired and reproduction sites that I really like for clothes that generally do a good job of capturing different eras accurately, but all of them always fail at the 1920s. Like 20 form fitting above-the-knee flapper dresses and TWO day dresses, one of which had long fringe :(

    Everyones talking about how unrealistic 1920s beauty standards were, and i mean they definitely were, but damn i literally have that body. Itsy bitsy boobs, but still sort of chubby, alongside plump, heart shaped, cupids bow lips and droppy doe shaped eyes. (I also look amazing in short hair) only difference is that i have a bigger butt. Idk i just find this era so validating it gives me the good feels 🥰

    I didn't actually know that really high heels were a stereotype of the 1920s. I love the short little heels of the shoes from that time. I've never been very into shoes but I have a couple pairs that are 1920s ish and I love them so much

    At 16, my grandma bobbed her hair, and her dad gave her a good cussing. That was 1925, and he was not amused. Her clothes were dresses that DID look like a potato sack, and as the Depression came about, probably WERE made of those sacks at times. I thought she was beautiful, and she never wore makeup, because first, the expense, second, the impracticality, as she picked cotton to feed her children. A bob would have been practical in the hot sun, and she told me she wore an old bonnet to keep the sun off her face. Also, VERY practical. Thanks for the video, and for keeping it honest and real.

    The 1920s looked better on drawings than in real life. A silhouette almost impossible to achieve, the androgynous ideal.
    But we have an exception to the rule, La Robe de Style de Lanvin, some sort of 18th centuriesque revival.

    I've got a few 1920 things from my grandmother, who went out dancing the Black Bottom skipping shorthand classes. They include quite a few gloves; she had to get them from Paris as her hands were so small. Mostly, they are shorter and were in loads of different colours.

    I have to push back on this a little. Although it's true dark makeup wasn't an everyday look for most people it was considered fashionable especially for artsy crowds. Also gloves were a staple for the wealthy for evening events, as well as pearls. Fringes and feathers were also definitely in. It's true that a lot of this was more seen in hollywood or magazines and obviously daily outfits were a lot more subdued however these things were popular at the time. I also agree that the modern costume with the feather band, gloves and fringe is a bit contrived but there is definitely some truth to these elements.

    I suspect that, like all eras, people wore a variety of styles. Many would no doubt have continued to wear the clothes they had always worn whilst others adopted new styles readily.
    I looked after women who still wore old fashioned undies similar to those worn in the 1910's - in the 1980's!!
    Also, our 21st century penchant for throw away clothing did not exist. Clothes were expensive and mostly hand made or home made - so people kept them for years. Even when I was a teenager in the 70's it was cheaper to make clothes than to buy them and we had fewer clothes.

    I so wish I'd asked either or both of my grandmothers so many more questions about when they were young when I had the chance to ask. Had they lived, they'd both be well over 100. The one did live to 96, the other died at 65 (a year younger than I am right now). I know both of them had fathers who were barbers, which is interesting, because they were "country" people here in Ohio. They came from conservative types yet were not religious. I think for both my grandmothers, it was about getting out and away from their folks to find jobs in the city. They married young, had kids early, the hubbies got good factory jobs after the war, worked hard, and they were basically set for life. What I do know is that I'm very thankful I had a good childhood and plenty of attention as the oldest grandchild on both sides and good memories. What's sad is that there is nobody left in the family now to ask.

    At 1920s-themed parties, it's alway flappers and gangsters lol. I think one of the reasons for all the misinformation about 1920s fashion is Hollywood. Film fan magazines and the "cult of Hollywood" often pushed the flapper look, sometimes even going so far as to show above the knee. Though that was pretty rare. But plenty of actresses who got a lot of coverage in magazines didn't wear "flapper clothes." Even looking through trendy fashion magazines, most women's clothing was still pretty conservative and more elegant than sexy. I hope more people watch this video and the myth finally goes away. Flapper fashion or not, it's still pretty cool and should be appreciated.

    dear miss zebrowska - i do like your videos; they are informative, fun, educational... but, please, allow me one slight suggestion, from a linguistic point of view. your english is very nearly excellent, you obviously have a good "ear" and seem to have picked up the american mode of expression quite well. you also seem to have picked up a language parasite - i am, like, referring, like, to the, like, excessive, like, use of the, like, word "like". this is called a filler and it is quite an unnecessary part of speech, usually, like "er" or "umm", serving the purpose of buying time, or filling the empty space. unfortunately, though rarely perceived by speakers, it can be very annoying and even alienating to listeners. it can also make the speaker appear to be less educated or less intelligent than he/she would desire to appear. i hope i have not offended, that was never my intention, i merely offered a bit of professional advice i thought you could benefit from. best of luck!
