Description
This uplifting history of America's favorite undergarment begins with the revelation that, a mere 100 years ago, there was no such thing as a bra. Invented neither by Otto Titzling nor Philippe DeBrassiere, as Cheree Berry assures us, the brassiere was in fact patented in 1914 by socialite Mary Phelps Jacob as a liberating alternative to the corset. Decade by decade, Berry takes us through the rise, fall, and evolution of the bra in brief accounts, quotes, and anecdotes, with appearances by Marlene Dietrich, Jayne Mansfield, Madonna, and other famous bra wearers, while illustrating her points with hilarious pop-up models—including pancakes, teacups, and ice cream cones. Among the book's many physical attributes are a pink satin spine and a hook-and-eye closure strap.
