She’s Got Legs- The Book

She's Got Legs CoverThose of you who have followed the blog, must have noticed that beyond our lively facebook page I haven’t posted in almost two years. It’s not because I got lazy or shifted all my attention to posting links on FB, but because during this time I was laboring over my first book, She’s Got Legs, which comes out this week from Schiffer Publications. The book, co-authored with Jane Merrill, has really been a labor of love and I am so thrilled it is finally out. The book is a fashion history survey from antiquity to present day which aims to examine, study, and explore the relationship between body and clothes from the waist down.

We offer a lens from which to look at attitudes toward exposure, concealing, and shaping of the lower-body and a complexity of influences on beauty and body ideals through the ages. Some of the topics we cover are posture, undergarments and shaping of the body, sports and fashion, dance and fashion, the hemline history, and swimwear to name a few.
