The Bare Essentials: A Passion for Lingerie

Author(s): Tracy Martin


This invaluable guide pays homage to the silk, satin and lace (or sometimes the Lycra and pvc) that has evolved to become the 'bare essentials' of every woman's wardrobe. Offering practical advice and tips on what to wear in every situation and occasion from your wedding day to a romantic assignation or even a little nocturnal naughtiness, Tracy Martin also advises on how to obtain that seam-free silhouette and avoid those lingerie fashion faux pas that every woman dreads. Beginning with the fascinating history of lingerie from the bustles and bloomers of the Victorian age to the more current, racy and bold burlesque style, this book is crammed full of information, facts and anecdotes as we celebrate how lingerie has literally shaped women's lives as well as their figures.
