In 1991, the remains of a body believed to be 5,300 years old were discovered. It was wearing underwear.
From the ancient past to the $27 billion industry today, UNMENTIONABLES uncovers the history, romance, mystery and controversy of underwear. What did the ancient Greeks wear under their togas? When was the brief invented? How on earth did the Victorians negotiate their masses of petticoats, corsets and other strange undergarments? Where did the word lingerie come from? These questions and more are explored in this fun, fascinating, feature-length special that reveals, among other things, how movie mogul Howard Hughes invented the figure- enhancing bra. From the fig leaf to BVDs, from Madonna to the Victoria's Secret catalog, the story about what gets between you and your Calvins is entertaining, informative and just a little bit racy!
