I was able to attend two Boobiethon education events, all be it somewhat briefly. The first was presented by Rowan Derryth on the History of Women’s Undergarments. The presentation was attended by Giles Berithas, Serra Anansi, PJ Trenton, Bellealuna Galaxy, CeeJay Wrtier, Bookworm Heinrichs, Eva Bellambi, JJ Drinkwater, Ellidh McCullough, Annachen Lowey, and Astroia Ronnin and several others.
An interesting subject, one does not give much though to the history of one’s undergarments, however they do indeed have a history. I did a quick internet search and found the following website if you wish to learn more:
