Inside Out: A Brief History of Underwear
Drawing on the National Trusts costume collection, Shelly Tobin traces the items that were used to squeeze women into a variety of shapes and styles, from the stays and corsets of the early 18th century to the silk and lace-trimmed items of the early 20th century. She also looks at nightclothes, maternity garb, and menswear.
