The bloomers were not actually invented by Amelia J. Bloomer. Bloomer caused their popularity by writing about them in her newspaper, the Lily, and wearing them in public, along with the famous Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Contrary to popular belief, Amelia J. Bloomer did not actually invent the bloomers. She popularized them in her newspaper, the Lily, and her association with the garment caused it to gain her name.


The bloomers were named after Amelia Bloomer because she popularized them in her newspaper, the Lily. She also wore them across the country to lectures and on a day-to-day basis, along with other historical women's rights activists such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. However, Amelia Bloomer did not actually invent the bloomers.

Amelia Bloomer died of a heart attack in Iowa, after receiving electrical treatments for her poor health. Her death date was December 30, 1894.


She was an American activist for women's rights. Who is she? Amelia Jenks Bloomer was her name. Amelia Jenks was born in Homer, New York on May 27, 1818. She was a very famous for women's right and for being a reformer. Amelia was also a school teacher, which led her to meeting her husband, whose name is Dexter C. Bloomer. (She was 22 when she got married.) Her husband was a lawyer and a part time owner of the Seneca Falls Country Courier. Her new husband encouraged her to write for the paper. In 1849, Amelia began writing a newspaper called The Lily. Articles in The Lily were mostly about temperance. (Temperance is an effort to get people not to drink alcohol.) The Lily had about 6,000 subscribers. Eventually Amelia started writing about women's rights, such as unequal educational opportunities, hateful marriage and property laws, and suffrage (the right to vote) for women. The Lily supported a change in women's dress. Amelia wanted to do away with the long dresses and corsets. She thought women should wear shorter dresses with something that resembled baggie pants underneath. The pants came to be know as "bloomers." They never really became popular but people still remember Amelia for the "bloomers." Sadly, Amelia Jenks Bloomer died on December 31, 1894 in Council Bluff, Iowa. We think Mrs. Bloomer was an amazing woman.


No, Amelia Earhart didn't invent something


Amelia Jenks Bloomer died on December 30, 1894 due to a heart attack, most likely caused by electrical treatments she received not long before her death.


Bloomers were a type of loose pant for women. Think long loose harem pants gathered at the knee. This was popularized by Amelia Bloomer who wrote about them in her paper The Lily. It was the first American attempt for women to wear loose pants rather than the restrictive corseted fashions of the 1800's. Their importance was that it was very scandalous, similar to wearing your underwear in public as acceptable clothing. See the link Bloomer Girls. Over time, the bloomer pants became shorter although still very full in the seat. They eventually became shorts with a tighter cuff on the leg, giving a rather "fluffy" look in the back. See the link. Because bloomers looked similar to ladies' underwear of the time, the name stuck to lower half underwear known as panties today. In the 1950's gym uniforms for girls were typically a shirt and bloomer shorts. Occasionally designers will try to bring back the bloomer style.


Bloomers were a part of a Victorian woman's underwear, and diametrically the opposite to today's garment of fashion, the thong. Bloomers were traditionally cotton (for working classes) or silk (for wealthy). they covered voluminously from the waist down to point just above the knee. Bloomer is also a type of bread loaf.


because hoopskirts were blamed for lameness Look it up and you'll find a lady named Mrs Bloomer was responsible for this atrocity.


no because everyone is unique as they say so if your puberty is late then it's not a big deal because there are early bloomers and late bloomers in puberty and you are a late bloomer.
