The Lingerie Handbook
Rebecca Apsan is the lingerie evangelist. She knows that intimate
apparel has the power to transform. That the right bra affects
not only look, but outlook. That sexy silk or lace are feminine armor,
offering a soft layer of protection against life’s vicissitudes. Her
New York City store draws shoppers from around the world—and not just
the celebrities who swear by it. New York Magazine sings her praises
as “the best bra-fitter in the country”; so does Lucky. The Wall Street
Journal wrote up her role in catapulting Hanky-Panky thongs onto
every well-dressed woman’s must-have list—on their front page! She provided
all the intimate apparel for Sex and the City. And now Rebecca
Apsan is ready to divulge thirty years of wisdom and insider information
about how underclothes can make the woman.
For a world where
85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra, The Lingerie Handbook
is a complete tops-to-bottoms guide to bras, panties, slips, sleepwear,
shapewear, stockings, teddies, camisoles, and accessories. There’s
the how-to on proper fit, including before-and-after photographs. Guides
to matching the right underwear to different outfits. (T-shirts,
jersey dresses, white pants, strapless gowns? No problem!) Straightforward
advice on shopping, cleaning, organizing, and storing. But inspiration,
too: how to cure body-image hang-ups by finding the right undergarments.
And romance: how to find your own inner flirt, develop a unique style,
and, when the occasion is right, how to dress to undress.
