What do the thousands of images of bras and panties on perfectly sculpted bodies that we see spread across billboards and magazines say about our society Many women indulge in lingerie to please men Yet, since Antiquity, women have always kept lingerie hidden away under outer garments Thus, lingerie must be than erotic bait Authors Muriel Barbier and Shazia BoucheWhat do the thousands of images of bras and panties on perfectly sculpted bodies that we see spread across billboards and magazines say about our society Many women indulge in lingerie to please men Yet, since Antiquity, women have always kept lingerie hidden away under outer garments Thus, lingerie must be than erotic bait Authors Muriel Barbier and Shazia Boucher have researched iconography to explore the relationship of lingerie to society, the economy and the corridors of intimacy They correlate lingerie with emancipation, querying whether it asserts newfound freedoms or simply adjusts to conform to changing social values The result is a rigorous scientific rationale spiced with a zestly humour And the tinier lingerie gets, the scholarly attention the authors believe it deserves.

Encontramos este libro en uno de esos días.Agus lo quería, yo no vi por qué no.Llego a casa y la primera que lo tomó fui yo.Con hermosas fotografías e ilustraciones de catálogos de lencería de época, este es uno de esos libros curiosos de los que comenzamos a hacer colección.Como parte de historia de la lencería o en el caso de Agus, como una referencia a los distintos nombres que las prendas y sus telas tuvieron en las épocas es un bello libro.

I've had this book for ages, maybe nearly ten years. It comes in a very large size, and the hardback version is fantastic, detailing the history of lingerie right up until the modern day. Loads of great pictures and the authors know their subject. The section on corsets is particularly fantastic. Recommended.
