Synopsis

The Revealing Story of Underwear by Katie Daynes

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.

About the Author

Katie Daynes

Katie studied languages at Cambridge University and soon discovered it wasn’t just French or Italian she loved, but language itself.

Katie now has two little children of her own and they are definitely her fiercest critics.
