History of lingerie

History of Lingerie

In 2009 was the release of the book “A History of Lingerie”. From the tunics of the Middle Ages to the petticoats of the Belle Epoque, from the corsets and bustles of the pre-revolutionary days to the 20th century feminists who burned their bras, there is no one single history of lingerie; rather, several different stories which overlap. Criss-crossing the threads of the story, Chantal Thomass, along with Catherine Örmen tell in their own voices the unedited story, which is not just a story of modesty, eroticism, and seduction, but also of norms and transgressions.
