1920s – Flappers
In the 1920s, there was a huge fashion shift. People now wore flapper dresses that were looser to hide waistlines. Pair that with short hairdos and hats, and women were branching out and celebrating their right to vote (after the ratification of the 19th Amendment).
Many people remember who Miss America was in 1921. Margaret Gorman had the ideal body shape at the time. Her boyish (long and lean) figure was a complete change from those hourglass figures before.
