Whalebone To See-Through: A History of Body Packaging
A history of Body Packaging by Michael Colmer
Any woman can relate to the wonderful of feeling of taking off your bra after a long day at work, but then slipping into something more glamorous and freer at home… we prefer a komoko in this respect.
Also, sometimes you need to put a bra on just to think properly, it helps you feel organised and prepared for the day.
When it comes to undergarments, the masochism associated with corsets or brasseries has always been present to a degree. Throughout history the favoured outline of female physique has varied in the extreme – this book will open your eyes to how extreme the pendulum swings in taste.
The last section of the Colmer’s book focuses on the sexy Brook-Shields-era, our favourite perhaps because it is looser and free, and no underwire!
