Sacks can have a good bit of shape in the waist, and I prefer them that way. BB's sack silhouette fluctuated quite a bit over the decades. They were generally boxy like all sacks in the earliest 20th c., gained more shape in the 20s and 30s, lost it in the 50s, and gained some back in the 70s and 80s.
