Sharing a fun lingerie-related post, treating yourself to a new piece, or taking some time to learn about the storied history of lingerie. Brands often have sales or special promotions, so keep an eye out for those.
Lingerie, derived from the French word 'linge' meaning linen, had its origins in the 18th century. During this time, undergarments were primarily made of linen and were basic, unadorned pieces. They were worn to provide modesty and support, but were not considered fashionable or luxurious.
In the 19th century, lingerie started to evolve with the introduction of new fabrics and designs. Women's undergarments began to shift from practicality to aesthetics. Corsets, petticoats, and chemises were popular during this time, and they were often elaborately decorated with lace and embroidery. The focus on enhancing the female silhouette became increasingly important.
In the 20th century, lingerie took a significant step towards becoming a booming industry. With advancements in mass production and the advent of synthetic fabrics such as nylon and rayon, lingerie became more accessible and affordable to a wider range of people. The emphasis shifted towards comfort and practicality, while still incorporating elements of style and sensuality.
The 1960s brought about a cultural shift that impacted the world of lingerie. With the rise of the sexual revolution and changing attitudes towards sexuality, lingerie began to reflect a newfound freedom and expression. Controversial lingerie styles such as the bra burning movement challenged traditional norms and pushed for women's liberation and body positivity.
The 1990s witnessed a surge in designer lingerie brands, marking a shift towards luxury and high-end products. Famous lingerie houses like Victoria's Secret and La Perla gained popularity, offering a range of luxurious and sophisticated lingerie collections that blended fashion and fantasy. Lingerie became more than just undergarments; it became a symbol of empowerment and self-expression.
In recent years, there has been a rise in diverse representation and inclusive sizing within the lingerie industry. Brands are now embracing body positivity and catering to a wide range of body types and sizes. Lingerie has evolved to become more inclusive, with emphasis on comfort, individuality, and self-confidence. The industry continues to push boundaries, celebrating all forms of beauty and promoting inclusivity.
