The Lingerie Handbook by Rebecca Apsan and Sarah Stark
I recently received this book as a gift from Merit, the owner of my favorite lingerie store Night and Day Lingerie in Andover, MA. It was a very fitting (so to speak) present and one I have been reading regularly. I have always been a big believer in having beautiful as well as functional undergarments and know that many women feel totally lost when it comes to all the subtleties of lingerie. Rebecca Apsan and Sarah Stark talk about everything from how to choose the proper undergarments for a particular outfit (yes, it makes a difference), to shapewear (so much more comfortable and functional than a few years ago), to finding the proper bra size (85% of women are wearing an ill-fitting bra). This book is a fabulous guide to lingerie, and it is lovely to look at as well.
