“This will be the book on women and sport clothing and will no doubt open the doors for additional research on the topic.... Patricia Warner has long been considered the expert in this field and numerous scholars have been anxiously awaiting the publication of this book. ”

—Gayle V. Fischer, author of Pantaloons and Power: A Nineteenth-Century Dress Reform in the United States

“Patricia Campbell Warner has completed a compelling and insightful book that poses the question, "Which came first, the sportswear or the female athlete?" ... This fine book should be read by interested in the history of women and sports in the nineteenth-century. ”

The American Journal of Play

“Warner examines a heretofore untapped area of U.S. social history: how informal clothing developed in the 1800s in response to middle-class leisure activities, competitive sports, and attitudes related to health. With wit and personal activities anecdotes, she reveals the rationale for the evolution in fashions from body-restricting women's Victorian styles to loose, comfortable, informal modern wear.... This pioneering work should spawn further women's history studies. ”
