A Road Scholar Program by Elizabeth Carlson
Women’s fashions are shaped, literally and figuratively, by their underclothes. Throughout history a woman’s frame has not always been entirely her own. These delicate pieces of linen and lace, stiff corsets, and sturdy hoops and bustles are fascinating to modern eyes; they are the unseen history of an era. Modern contrivances are no less remarkable. Join Elizabeth Carlson as she explores the history, and unveils the myths, of women’s "unmentionables."
