"To my mind, late teens/early 20s illustrations look, well, sort of matronly, with a more rounded bust and hips and less willowy arms and legs." Well, I'm a "late teens/early 20s illustrations look", eh... :( Really NEAT project, Margaret!!

Thanks! Rhonda, I know *I'm* more like an early 20s than late 20s drawing ;) Looking at 1920s photos, I would say most people then were, too. The later 20s illustration style got more abstract and sometimes very unrealistic, IMO. But "matronly" sounds pretty negative, doesn't it. I have seen ads for patterns/clothes for "young matrons" up to the 1920s, I think, so it maybe wasn't bad then, but probably I should have stuck with "rounded".
