A fascinating delve into the history of underwear, from the first medieval pants to rib-cracking corsets and petticoats so wide women had trouble fitting through doors. Children can read how historical, social and industrial factors have affected what we wear under our clothes. Specially written as part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme for children growing in reading confidence.show more
