] Yet, this is also true of these times. Take "jeans" for instance. In these parts they are worn very tight, specially by teenagers. Add a very low waist and you'll find nothing so uncomfortable. You cannot even sit down with those things on. When I was a teenager, many of my friends had to lie down in order to zip up their pants, and they did that as a matter of course. Then, what about high-heels? OK, one looks better in them, but they are really uncomfortable. And the same with miniskirts. And what about make-up? I know some women that spend one hour of every day getting ready to go out...to work. And they do that for beauty's sake.
] I won't deny that clothes are more comfortable now, that I think that we still sacrifice comfort for appearance
Yes, but we choose to do so. Walking around in simple, comfortable clothes isn't unthinkable. A woman today can dress comfortably and still be a proper woman, even if she gets a few nasty remarks, she can do it. Victorian women couldn't.
