Over the Knee: Skirt Lengths Through the Years

Hair Removal : Over the Knee: Skirt Lengths Through the Years

We all know how fast fashion trends change - what’s ‘hot’ one day is gone the next. The same applies for women’s fashion. It has evolved dramatically over the years especially in terms of skirt lengths…

Tightly bound corsets and bell-shaped skirts used to be the norm amongst women in the early 1900’s.

It was not acceptable for women to show their legs so they would wear floor length skirts and dresses to ensure they were fully covered.

The roaring 20s saw the arrival of the dropped waist dresses that ended just below the knee. A very popular style which we still see in the Gatsby style adapted to fashion today.

Although lengths varied throughout the years depending on what was in style at the time, the invention of the mini-skirt by Mary Quant in 1965 was a real game changer in women’s fashion.

As it became socially acceptable for women to be more independent and confident, it became fashionable to show off your legs whether the sun was shining or not. So, as our skirts got shorter, it’s no surprise that the demand for effective hair removal increased.

Some of the oldest forms of hair removal include razors made from flints, tweezers, creams and stones. Another form of hair removal was walnut oil and bandages.

Luckily hair removal has evolved in time with fashion. Whether it is depilatory creams, shaving or waxing – there is a form of hair removal to suit every woman.
