Since becoming a sell out last Christmas, we have been on tenterhooks awaiting the reprint of this fantastic little gem from Taschen 1000 Dessous: A History of Lingerie by Gilles NĂ©ret.

Beautifully compact with a substantial 576 pages and a snip at £9.99, this publication is stylish, saucy, informative and outright cheeky. 1000 photographs and illustrations trace the evolution of lingerie from the dawn of civilization to modern times. Documenting all areas of lingerie through time from the first pair of briefs (Sumeria 3000BC) to the signature corsets of Gaultier, 1000 Dessous reveals the conflict between the need to conceal and the will to reveal and covers the areas of art, advertising, fetishism, illustration, film, performance and media with the lingerie industry.

A joy to flick through, women like to buy it and men love to sneak a peek at it.
