I requested this book on a whim from NetGalley, and I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from it, as it’s the first of it’s kind that I’ve read.
One of the things I liked about this book was all of the history of underclothing that I learned. From the bra to underwear to slips and lingerie. All of the history was fascinating to see how fashion has changed over the years.
I also really liked how simply she put the information. I learned a lot about how to shop for bras and underwear, it gave me a better understanding of sizes which is something that’s always confused me. Reading the book made me want to shop for underclothing, which is a feeling I’d never had before in my life.
Overall I think that the book could have been formated better. I found the images conected with bras and underwear confusing. Maybe this is just because of the way the kindle ARC was? I hope that the book is easier to read. The writing style also wasn’t my favorite, the author has a sort of ”cutesy” voice that was annoying as all get out.
In the end I gave the book 3 stars.
