The name Leotard was originally born in 1886. Corset has to be mentioned in the history of Europe has long been popular with women's waists. This custom is related to the clothing of women at the time. In the centuries after the 16th century, women with identity in Europe generally wore corsets and long skirts that were towed to the ground to tie the waist. Wearing this tight-fitting suit, the waist is thin and elegant. The aesthetic concept at the time was a bee waist and a buttocks. In order to make the waist branches slender, use the whale bones to make a skirt, and use a soft canvas like a kail to tighten the waist. This kind of corset has the functions of the three basic underwears of the corset of the bra, the waist of the girdle, and the corset of the trousers, and the chest, the waist, the abdomen, the buttocks and the ankle are adjusted as a whole, and the local parts are avoided. Adjust the possible shift of the flesh. The overall tension of the one-piece corset tightens the muscles and fat on the entire torso. Women wear tights to shape their bodies from a girlhood, and Western women wear perverted corsets, which make the internal organs deformed, so the life span of people is very short.
By the 19th century, with the rise of the feminist movement, some women advocated clothing reform and opposed the waist, thinking that women can wear long pants like men. In 1887, the Viscount Viscount of England put on trousers and declared: "Pants are not only comfortable, hygienic, but also dignified." However, the respondents were not enthusiastic, and there are still many women wearing skirts and skirts.
Until the outbreak of the First World War in the early 20th century, the number of women employed was greatly increased due to the lack of labor. Many people began to abandon the flamboyant style of clothing and put on practical trousers for work convenience. People's aesthetic concepts have also changed a lot. They began to admire the simple and natural beauty, and hated the deliberately modified kitsch practices. The custom of women's waists was abandoned. [This, in fact, there are reasons why medical technology is not developed at the time, even if it is a cold, it can kill people. If I got used to the waist since I was a child, I don’t think it’s short-lived. ] So Europe at the time can be said to be the same as ancient China. Trends and folk customs are spread by nobles.
At the beginning of the 20th century, tights began to be worn by actors engaged in circus and acrobatic performances.
