Queen Victoria’s Underpants

French, Jackie / Whatley, Bruce

A very funny story about the most famous underwear in the British Empire.

Meet Lizzy, whose family are in the clothing industry. Very few people probably know that Queen Victoria made the wearing of underpants popular. At the beginning of her reign very few women wore them. But Queen Victoria made tartans, perambulators and chloroform fashionable. By the time she died just about every woman in Britain wore underpants like hers.
