Best Kept Secret

This book is definitely fabulous. Rebecca Apsan has a wealth of knowledge that she's willing to share with the world. Whether women want to know more about how to look better just by adjusting a few wisps of clothing or men want to know more about the mysteries of our undergarments; this book combines the history, present and future of our most intimate apparel.
Informative, pretty, entertaining.

useful review
I love having this as a reference book in order to help me with a variety of things. Whether I need to know different styles of bras, what would look best under a certain types of clothing, various names and styles of panties or even how to decode the symbols to wash my delicates properly.

    Wonderful review for what sounds like a wonderful book! Does the author talk about different kinds of lingerie specifically? How is the book split up?
  • Airlia
    The book is split up into a few sections:

    Bras, panties, slips and sleepwear, shapewear, stockings and tights, tips for men and women (on sizing and style extra), care and upkeep, and a few miscellaneous sections on lingerie.

    Apsan talks about different styles in each section, what could be best for each body type and each occasion (t shirts, weddings, formal wear, etc).

    Hope that helps!

    Hmm. I am not very nice to my underthings and they would likely last longer if I were.

    Was there anything specific which caught your attention? (I like specifics and excerpts in my book reviews).
  • Airlia
    Well you'd love the section on how to take care of them - it explains how to fold, sort, wash, and keep them smelling pretty.

    My favourite part was all the little tips scattered through the book. Some weren't lingerie specific but still useful... like what to boil to make the entire house smell inviting.

    There are too many parts of this book to explain properly, but trust me it's worth the read.

    I like that the book is split up into sections and that it has sections on the best lingerie for your body type. I know what I enjoy and like, but am not always certain if it is what I should be wearing.
