Which details from Chapter 3 of Wheels of Change does the image help the reader better understand? Check all that apply. In the 1890s, riding a bicycle in traditional clothing could be hazardous to a woman's health. This combination of a shortened dress and flowing trousers became known as the Bloomer costume. As female cyclists continued to choose from a variety of styles for their wheeling outfits, images of women in bloomers entered popular culture in some surprising ways. By the 1840s, dresses had become longer and fuller, with women wearing several layers of petticoats to create a teepee-like effect from the waist down. One undergarment in particular, the corset, made the very act of getting dressed a challenge.
