Corsets and Codpieces by Karen Bowman

The book, Corsets and Codpieces by Karen Bowman is an excellent way to learn about what clothing was worn back then and how it happens to now be used by many of us. I love that it goes into detail and explains the entire history of the unique pieces worn. Some things like Corsets and Codpieces, which codpieces I never ever knew or known what they were till I read this book. Plus, it explains other trends and original pieces that were worn. Plus, I've always wondered about the body odor issue, as now we have showers with hot water and can bathe all the time but back then it wasn't as easy. So what I've ready they would douse themselves in tons of perfume like scents to get rid of the odor. I guess that is a plus if you have no way to remove the smell.

However, this book will pack your brain with fashion from back during Roman times and many other eras, which has happened to bring out the fun designs we have today and styles. Old clothing and styles coming back into fashion, thanks to this book you can get an idea how many of them were thought up and what we still wear or use as they've worn back then.
