For centuries women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, teased, twisted and tweaked into clothes of varying shapes and styles according to the dictates of fashion. Using items from the National Trust's costume collections, many of which are not on public view, Shelley Tobin reveals how these styles were achieved. She traces the development of the foundation garments from vast skirt supports, stays and corsets of the 18th century, to the early 20th century when the use of colored silks and lace trimmings made underwear something to show.

As the first survey of the history of women in Russia to be published in any language, this book is itself an historic event -- the result of the collaboration of the leading Russian and American specialists on Russian women's history. The book is divided in to four chronological parts corresponding to eras of Russian history: (I) Kievan/Mongol (10th - 15th centuries); (II) Muscovite ( 16th - 17th centuries); (III) 18th century; and (IV) 19th - early 20th centuries. Each part gives coverage to four main topics: (1) The role of prominent women in public life, with biographical sketches of women who attained prominence in political or cultural life; (2) Women's daily life and family roles; (3) Women's status under the law; (4) Material culture and in particular women's dress as an expression of their place in society.
