 In 1917, Bernard Baruch, chairman of the U.S. War Industries Board specifically asked the women to abandon their habit of wearing a corset. The use of corsets is essentially harmful to health. Although forming the body of a woman according to the standard of beauty in those days, girdle makes breathing difficult, and in some extreme cases lead to dislocation of organs.

Styles that are considered modern when it is a style of women's clothing is made practically without using many ingredients and make women more easily moved. The shift followed the trend of women becoming active in a variety of jobs. Women who follow fashion, which is thought to reflect the rebellion, then commonly called a flapper.Bra with this modern form began to be mass produced later in 1920-аn. But mass production has not noticed the size of each individual woman.It was only in 1922 with a woman can wear a bra more comfortable when Ida and William Rosenthal revolutionized the form of a bra. They created a standard size bra which consists of a linear ring ribs and chest volume size (cup size) by using the alphabet (A, B, C, D, and so on).
