When the economy is strong it makes women want to reveal more of themselves than when times are tough.

The hemline index is a theory presented by economist George Taylor in 1926.[1][2]

The theory suggests that hemlines on women's dresses rise along with stock prices. In good economies, we get such results as miniskirts (as seen in the 1920s and the 1960s),[3] or in poor economic times, as shown by the 1929 Wall Street Crash, hems can drop almost overnight. Non-peer-reviewed research in 2010 supported the correlation, suggesting that "the economic cycle leads the hemline with about three years".[4]
