AB: Carter – Underwear

(This is an entry in the Annotated Bibliography.)

Carter, Alison. Underwear: The Fashion History. New York: Drama Book Publishers, 1992.

This is a very sensationalized portrayal of the history of undergarments, with a great deal of 1970s-1990s images and no particularly cohesive narrative. The text is not a reliable source of information. It offers very little before the late 19th century. Overall, it is not a particularly useful or reliable resource, though it has some good images. It is not instructional. It contains monochrome images as well as a color section. It contains a bibliography.
