I was doing quick background on the history of women’s underwear for this scene I’m writing. Mostly I wanted a nice synonym for ‘underpants’.
And I crashed head-on into The Museum of Menstruation & Women’s Health. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! (Yes, there is a link. To the “what sort of underwear did women wear in the past” question, the answer is apparently, “Mostly, they didn’t.”)
Talk about an eye-opening site. Shocking. Informative, in frightening ways. Be warned, this is not a site for the faint of heart. If you passed out from the tonsil chunks discussion, this will kill you.
