Wendy A. Burns-Ardolino discusses her book, which spans the fields of women's studies, cultural studies, and media studies as it examines the significance of women's embodied experience with the most intimate feminine foundation garments. Burns-Ardolino weaves together feminist theory of the body, the cultural production and consumption of fashion and beauty cultures, femininity, and female subjectivity to tell the story of how women are shaped physically, culturally, socially and politically by shaping garments.
