Although slightly dated, Stuart and Elizabeth Ewen's "Channels
of Desire: Mass Images and the Shaping of American Consciousness"
(McGraw Hill, 1982) has an interesting Marxist analysis of the
women's fashion industry, including a chapter on the sociology of
women's undergarments from the nineteenth century to the present.
