Great video about women’s undergarments throughout history

Ok. We can file this under “errata” – The Indianapolis Museum of Art posted this very interesting presentation about women’s undergarments and how they’ve changed over the years. I find it fascinating how fashions in history were influenced not only by the materials one could afford, but also by the amount of support staff required to create and maintain garments, and to dress the final consumer in them. And it’s fascinating to consider how some garments shape and control the activities that can be performed while wearing them.

In any case, I thought I’d pop this up here for future reference.
