    A beautiful book with great photos and diagrams.I really had little interest in the post 1950 s underwear in the book but it was fascinating to see the metamorphoses of the undergarment from the 16 century to the 21st.

    Oh historical underwear, you subject of oh so many wikipedia spirals I was put over the edge finally by a twitter thread about corsets and the need to be able to speak with some authority when I get all up in arms about people having weird hangups about corsets when making period set movies Gerwig, i love you, but i m looking at you I went to the nonfiction section of the library Me The nonfiction section And finally some answers Andquestions I loved this book, the historical overv Oh historical underwear, you subject of oh so many wikipedia spirals I was put over the edge finally by a twitter thread about corsets and the need to be able to speak with some authority when I get all up in arms about people having weird hangups about corsets when making period set movies Gerwig, i love you, but i m looking at you I went to the nonfiction section of the library Me The nonfiction section And finally some answers Andquestions I loved this book, the historical overview from the seventeenth century to the high fashion of the beginning of the 21st The focus was on the specific pieces of the collection of the VA museum, so the pieces were actual historical artifacts and were photographed beautifully The blurbs were well done, even if they were a little repetitive as the book clearly wasn t to be read straight through word for word on a Friday night like a gossip magazine The photographs were sometimes too close and detailed to get a feel for the whole piece, but the sketches were wonderful Really I wanted about sixteen pictures of each piece It also was clearly about the standout pieces of the museum collection and less about offering a representative overview of the history they were tracking.In short, this was totally delightful and I need about ninetybooks to answer all my questions How did these pieces work with the clothes How did what the rich, titled women with maids wear compare to what the maids were wearing How much was fashion and how much was morality adjacent modesty and how were they interconnected How did the pieces work together, and what about movement I must know every single fact This and Russia, I have two 2 research interests I must be an expert flashes forward to sixty years in the future, where my grandchildren repeat the inevitable cycle, cleaning out my house full of books, hitting the curse you grandma, how many books about underwear and russia does one person NEED refrain at the same pitch and frequency we ve been saying isn t there a limit to the amount of things one can learn about trains and american history, papa, come on

    Organizationally and sometimes grammatically challenged The blurbs are excellent The photos, however, are too artistic to be useful though the sketches are educational.

    I mostly just looked at the pictures, but I did scan most of the text as well I do just wish there were photos from other angles.

    I saw this title mentioned on a recommended reading list I found buried in the depths of the historical costuming internet, and immediately put in an Inter Library Loan request for it hoping a library somewhere would have a copy They did, and let me just say this book is absolutely amazing.Do you want a book with high quality, full page detail photography of extant garments not full length shots, but those nice tiny detail shots that are hard to find online A book with simple flat line diagr I saw this title mentioned on a recommended reading list I found buried in the depths of the historical costuming internet, and immediately put in an Inter Library Loan request for it hoping a library somewhere would have a copy They did, and let me just say this book is absolutely amazing.Do you want a book with high quality, full page detail photography of extant garments not full length shots, but those nice tiny detail shots that are hard to find online A book with simple flat line diagrams of the extants photographed A book which gives you the museum collection information including the piece s official number so that you can actually look up the full museum shots and information if a piece interests you Or quotes historical text examples from the time periods Has a bibliography with superscript referrals in the body text A freaking further reading and recommendations list A mini glossary Then you absolutely, positively want this book this book, to me, is the holy grail that I ve been looking for It s organized into sections based on subject focus,, instead of being a straight timeline of history Which does mean that several pieces appear across multiple sections, and information is repeated Personally, though, I enjoyed the opportunity to see garments from different angles in the detail shots and was happy to see them repeated.Unlike someone in another review complains, it is not mostly modern 20th century in terms of extant examples While the majority are from the mid 1800 s to the early 1920 s which is rational, given how few examples of earlier garments survive let alone are in good enough condition to photograph , it has a healthy mix of time periods ranging from 1500 s all the way up to the 00 s the book gives you an absolutely lovely, broad view of undergarment history and does allow you to see the evolution over the course of it.I love this book beyond words so much so that I ll definitely be picking up both it and the 2nd edition blue corset cover 2014 from Barnes Nobles for my personal collection as soon as I can afford the 49.99 pricetag per book
