This is a useful introduction to the history of women's underclothing, well illustrated with small monochrome photographic images from the author's collection. It is brief (!), succinct, and it strictly avoids titillation. It provides a short introduction useful for collectors, and those with a more general interest in its once-taboo subject. Of course, a book such as this cannot supplant the experience of viewing a collection, which should allow appreciation of the undoubtedly large variability in design, particularly in respect of hand-made garments, but it allows an appreciation of the social and technological factors which have determined the design.
