They used to wear WHAT?!! The history of maternity wear
Maternity wear has come a long way in the last ten years. Or has it? Dr Catriona Fisk is a dress historian who did her PHD in the history of maternity wear. Her research goes all the way back to the 1700s, and offers insights into the ways women adapted fashion to fit their bodies - and how they themselves fit in society. Cartriona offers up some surprising information - particularly about how the corset was used for pregnant women. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
