She's Got Legs: A History of Hemlines and Fashion by by Jane Merrill & Keren Ben-Horin, Photography by Nasser K

Did you know that there is a legend that women shave their legs because of the Queen of Sheba or that the Etruscan ladies wore pretty, tiered skirts?  I didn't! This book is full of fascinating anecdotes about royalty and strange myths, but it also provides an excellent analysis of the fashion of hemlines.

I especially liked the illustrations and pictures.

Unfortunately, this was hard to read because the e-book kept freezing.

I received this ebook from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
