"Vesta Tilly emerging from carriage at Ascot, 1904." Fashion trends for women of Edwardian era were characterized by the hourglass silhouette, where the waist was contracted with the use of a corset. The hips and bust were made to look fuller. The trend of that period was "S-curve". Blouses and dresses were puffed, high-collar were prevalent, and the waist was narrowed further with a belt.
