Clothing changed with women's changing roles in modern society,
The Feminine Liberation movement had a very strong effect on women's
fashions. Most importantly, the confining corset was discarded,
throwing away the hourglass shape and creating a more linear
silhouette. For the first time in centuries, women's legs were seen
with hemlines rising to the knee and dresses became more fitted. A
more masculine look became popular, including flattened breasts and
hips, short hairstyles such as the bob cut.
