In contrast to most European countries, reports Dr Gurova, "the Soviet revolution cancelled corsets and dressed women in bras more quickly".

My favourite line: "Underwear," explains Gurova, "was a compulsory part of that regime. A goal was established: everyone should have at least two sets, and should change sets at least once every 7-10 days."

ALL HAIL THE GLORIOUS PROLETARIATE STATE!

and, erm, would you lot mind standing down wind?
 
Specious? Is that any way to describe the Glorious Soviet Undergarment? Counterrevolutionary attitude to pants I call it.
 
Gurova says that dark underwear becomes dirty more slowly and then refers to 'black, vinous, khaki or dark blue' colours. Wouldn't brown be more suitable?
 
I lived in the USSR for a while, and met up with a few of the old exiles in the Gorno-Altaiski region of Siberia. Their stories of how they ended up in the gulags were enough to make you weep at the insanity of it all. Have no doubt that having an extra pair of nice trolleys would be enough to get you denounced back in the '30s as a bourgeois counter-revolutionary, probably by someone who couldn't be asked to wash their own.

Proletarii vsyekh stran', soyedinyaityes'! You have nothing to lose but your keks...

I went to Moscow on holiday two summers ago. Just looking at the Lubyanka (former KGB HQ) made me wish I was wearing brown underpants.
