Maureen Dowd is always fun to read and today she wrote about underwear! An historical look at underwear at an exhibit in Paris to be exact. And, her article is provocative to read, as usual.
One thing I learned was the word "lingerie" comes from the French word to wash, which makes so much sense, I should have know that before!! Since most clothing back in the day was pretty much impossible to wash, the best people could do was to wash all the underclothing they wore next to their skin ... their lingerie!!
So, I would love you all to read her article, especially you "Extreme Research" folks and please comment on Ms. Dowd's assertions.
