In this post I’d like to share with you all some tidbits about Soviet lingerie. I saw a similar blog called RealUSSR.com tackle this issue already. I agree with the author in almost all aspects however I’d like to specify and somewhat counter their claims!
The author of the blog said the following:
Due to a series of not so fortuitous events (the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917, the First World War, the overall rundown of the young Soviet country) women never had their needs attended to properly. Underwear was made, first and foremost, for the working class with no preferential treatment for the females so women had no choice other than to wear those sexless garments. This is probably the saddest part of the Soviet history.
