THIS Is Why Women Jeans Don't Have Pockets Like Men. There Is A SHOCKING History Behind This!

Ladies, this one is for you!

#7 POCKETS!

#7 POCKETS!
Everyone loves pockets - be them on dresses, pants or jackets!

And why wouldn't you? They are convenient, functional and make life so simple. Can you imagine a world without pockets?

Sometimes, these little things in life have very unsettling reasons of existence and now is time you got to know about one of it!

#6 YOU WONT BELIEVE THIS!

Today, pockets in women clothes are much smaller and inconvenient as compared to those in menswear. Like, it would be amazing if you could get a chocolate bar in there!

Clearly, sexism and pockets go a long way, much longer than their sizes in our pants these days! Let's figure what this was all about!

#5 THE HISTORY!

#5 THE HISTORY!
In the Victorian era,women wore huge flaring dresses that made them more uncomfortable than they looked. On top of this there was the pain of a corset bodice and complete lack of pockets! 

So a few smart ones would hide pockets inside their huge dresses. Although it was more like a satchel hanging by a thread around the waist, it atleast was something!

#4 THE EVOLUTION!

But then life evolved and the garish, fluffy attires gave way to sleek, elegant gowns that embraced bodies beautifully. But here came a problem. Where would the secret pockets go now? 

At this point, as a saviour to all those women, came the purse. Back then, it was called the reticule. While some were embellished, some were sequined, and some were embroidered. Every woman was now carrying a purse!

However, now the conflict of the purse sizes began where big ones meant the woman worked...and the society oh, so hated working women!

#3 THEN CAME THE PANTS!

But then, soon fashion changed again and then came the pants!

Designed primarily to be worn by men who worked outside their houses, these pants obviously had huge pockets so that they would carry things. So when women started wearing pants, they wore those huge pockets with style. But society put its brain together again and decided something seemed off! 

Thinking that it sabotaged the women's petite figures, women denims started being made without pockets itself. They felt that if a woman put something in her pant pockets, it would bulge out and disfigure her appearance, making her look bulky and unappealing. Gone!

#2 WHO GIVES A DAMN?

Ever since then pockets in women pants have been diminishing in size and in most cases even disappeared!

Infact, it had completely disappeared in between when everything from our jeans to our skirts, we don't have pockets in anything. And for the longest time, it was okay. Plus, it was cheaper to make pocketless pants. Eventually, pockets disappeared from most other clothings.

#1 THE AGE OF PSEUDO -POCKETS!

#1 THE AGE OF PSEUDO -POCKETS!
But today we are living in an age of tight jeggings or leggings and no one really seems to care about the good, old pockets. So most of the brands prefer to make their clothes that will fit perfectly on a woman's body and either avoid pockets completely or make pseudo ones that practically are useless for anything other than a strip of gum! 

So much for fashion over utility and comfort!
