Summary, etc.:
Underwear can be practical, it can be lucky, it can be just plain bizarre. And just one mention of it can make you giggle or blush. But if you really want to laugh out loud, take a step back in time and check out what people in past centuries used to cover up "down there". With uproarious illustrations this book sets out to uncover the truth behind underwear.
