How Underwear Got Under There: A Brief History

by

How Underwear Got Under There: A Brief History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I see London, I see France...heres a book about underpants!

 

Did you know that warriors at the time of Genghis Khan invented arrow-resistant silk underwear? Or that the recommended age to begin wearing a corset in the late 1800s was four years old? Or that King Tut had a particular fondness for underwear? He was buried with 145 pairs!

 

This lively text consists of ten chapters on various aspects of underwear, including the social and historical ramifications of different undergarments and their development for warmth, support, protection, cleanliness, and status. Regan Dunnicks clever illustrations and Kathy Shaskan's accessible text is giggle-worthy, page-turning, and well-researched. From boxers to bustles to briefs, from history to humor, from support to society, the story of underwear is the story of humanity itself.

 

“Most highly recommended.”—Childrens Literature

 

“Certain to keep young readers in, so to speak, stitches.”—Kirkus Reviews
