How Underwear Got Under There

We would never get caught with our pants down even if we are wearing our best underwear, but have you ever wondered how it got there? I came upon this cool and information-packed book entitled How Underwear Got Under There by Kathy Shaskan and was really amazed at the history of underwear. Our underpants are the descendants of a  funny little garment called the loincloth. Much like the ones you’ve seen Tarzan wearing! I found out that before the mid 1800s underwear did not come in sizes because it was handsewn and fitted for a particular person. There are a lot more cool facts in the book so go and check it out at children’s non fiction area the call number is J 391.42 SHA. Happy reading!
