Manufacturer Description

The retrospective of lingerie through the ages offers the admirer and wearer fashion tips by example for making these bare essentials look great so you can feel great. Lingerie is part icon, part turn-on, and an international symbol of feminine mystique.

Author and former fashion stylist Catherine Bardey takes a tasteful and entertaining look at the history, iconography and appeal of women's underwear, from bloomers and emancipation and the evolution of underwear. From the confining corsets of the Edwardian era to the conical shaped bras of the 1950s to the sheer, supportive shapes of today's lingerie, styles have changed dramatically through the decades, influenced by cultural changes as well as sports and the entertainment industry.

Lingerie is lavishly illustrated with over 100 photographs, illustrations, advertisements and ephemera.
