Long before Victoria's Secret, Munsingwear was mass-producing undies for the American population. For In the Mood for Munsingwear: Minnesota's Claim to Underwear Fame, author Susan Marks explores the rich and fascinating history of the business, from its itch-less long johns of the late 1800s to its bullet bras and lacy merry widows of the '60s.
Marks's book also explores labor struggles over the decades, from sweatshop management, to employee benefits.
