Description by

Lingerie: A Modern Guide is a lingerie lookfest filled with fabulous pictures and cheeky commentary. Covering the fun, often deliciously risque, history of lingerie, you'll meet the first innerwear-as-outerwear model (a 5000 year old Snake Goddess in a corset!), take a peek beneath the astounding 11 pounds of underpinnings worn by our Victorian sisters, and discover the special sewing secret behind the military - inspired bullet bras of the '40s and '50s.

You'll also see how, in more recent times, Madonna has manipulated the power of underwear to maximum effect. Clad in crinolines and bustiers, she channeled one part 50s prom queen, one part Marilyn, and just enough S&M spice to bring lingerie out in the open, helping to launch the innerwear-as-outerwear phenomenon.

With its engaging combination of alluring images, fascinating history, and modern musings, Lingerie: A Modern Guide is your one-stop guide to the shape wear that has helped shape the world.
