Uplift: The Bra in America
Jane Farrell-Beck (au); Colleen Gau (au). Over the years, the bra has been stereotyped as an object of seduction, glamour, & even oppression. Here, Jane Farrell-Beck, a prof. of textiles & clothing, & Colleen Gau, pres. of a home-based conservation of textiles business, use this item of clothing to gauge the social history of women & to understand the business history of fashion. Viewing fashion as a means to entertainment, self-creation, & everyday art, the authors illuminate the effect the brassiere has had on womenís lives -- their style, health, & economic opportunity. This book is an informal yet comprehensively researched work of history & sociology that isnít dull pretentious, or politically correct (or incorrect), & thatís fun to read as well as being instructive.
