100 Years of Workout Style

The newest edition of the Mode 100 Years series shows us what women wore to exercise in over the past century. The model is YouTube fitness vlogger Cassey Ho. It’s not just a fashion video, either: Ho demonstrates what was considered a “workout” in those bygone decades.

 We may laugh now, but 100 years ago, household chores meant heavy lifting, transportation meant walking, and “fitness” was something people rarely had time for anyway. As real life got easier, we had to adjust our recreation to fill in the physical fitness gap. Most of us don’t exercise enough even now. (via Tastefully Offensive)

I just love the cut of those shorts from the 40's.
