What We Wear Under ThereBook - 2008
From the team that brought you "How Sweet It Is (and Was): A History of Candy" comes another humourous picture book about the history of underwear.Underwear. It can be practical, it can be lucky, it can be just plain bizarre. And just one mention of the word can make you giggle or blush. But if you really want to laugh out loud, take a step back in time and check out what people in past centuries used to cover up "down there." Women in the 18th century wore underwear that made their hips look six feet wide! In the 19th century you could buy underwear that opened and closed in the back. With uproarious illustrations by John O'Brian, Ruth Freeman Swain sets out to discover the dirty truth behind underwear and what people wear (and wore!) under there.
