Sportswear 1890s – 1930s. Bicycle.
Briefly about sportswear for cycling.
In 1817, Laufmaschine appeared – the progenitor of the bicycle. In the 1820s, women began riding them. Bicycles entered mainstream use in the late 1880s, and they became the impetus for a radical change in fashion in subsequent decades. Since the 1890s, there has been a fashion for cycling for women, which means that the skirt should not be so voluminous, or should be transformed into trousers. Corsets become special, not as tight, allowing you to breathe.
