Organizationally and sometimes grammatically challenged The blurbs are excellent The photos, however, are too artistic to be useful though the sketches are educational. This is so much eye candy Ideally, I would have likedpictures of each garment, but this is an amazing book. 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. ½ Underwear ↠´ I have mixed feelings about this book, so I ll list both sides Good The detailed photos in this book are FANTASTIC There were several facts in this book that I didn t know preciously about undergarment fashion history, and was pleased to learn. Bad There are hardly any full length photos That drove me bonkers The sewing pattern inspired illustrations left much to be desired, so I wondered what many of the pieces in the book actually looked like as whole garments As I got deeper into the book, I noticed that the blurbs containedandrepeated information. Overall it is a pretty book, but I am glad that I borrowed it from the library rather than buying it. Way too much modern Underwear for my taste if I want to see men s boxer shorts, or balcony bras, I can look in the laundry hamper and too much of the non modern Underwear is from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, which is still too recent for my taste Probably only about 20% of the book were things I actually found interesting Glad I borrowed it, rather than purchase it myself. 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. A quick look through today Fantastic photographs and details of undergarments from the 16th century to the modern Terrific drawings, and showing a great collection of corsetry and the like All from the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum I must go there I MUST GO THERE.
