New Idea, May 1903

(There was also an Australian magazine of this name around the same time, but this is an American publication.)

The lady on the cover is dressed fairly plainly for the era, but she is still corseted into the characteristic Edwardian "s-bend" shape and has to hold her skirts up to prevent them trailing on the ground.   Her clothes are not in any sense practical, even though they are less decorated than many from the same period.
