Episode #20-'History, Bitches' Gets Undressed, Part 1



Centuries before the Victoria’s Secret Angels were raising eyebrows on the cat-walk, European noblewomen set fingers wagging and hearts racing with their voluminous skirts! For this week’s episode of ‘History, Bitches,’ I chat with Sarah Bendall, a Phd candidate researching women’s history through the lens of underwear. For the first in a two-part series, we discuss the farthingale, a structural garment worn under the skirt to increase its diameter. For visual reference, check-out the show notes.
