Uplift: The Bra in America






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  University of Pennsylvania Press
Summary: Over the years the bra has been stereotyped as an object of seduction, glamour, and even oppression. In Uplift: A History of the Bra in America Jane Farrell-Beck and Colleen Gau use this item of clothing to gauge the social history of women and to understand the business history of fashion. Viewing fashion as a means to entertainment, self-creation, and everyday art, the authors illuminate the effect the brassiere ha...s had on women's lives--their style, health, and economic opportunity. Rich in examples from advertising, movies, and other areas of popular culture, Uplift moves beyond featherbones and fiberfill to provide a sense of the dynamic relationship of the bra to wider issues in society.

Jane Farrell-Beck is the author of Uplift: The Bra in America, published 2002 under ISBN 9780812218350 and 0812218353. One hundred fourteen Uplift: The Bra in America textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, fifty nine used from the cheapest price of $0.49, or buy new starting at $10.95.
