The Brief History of Sexy Lingerie

It is well recorded that the female Cheap Shapewear figure varies a greatly. History shows that it has always been like this!

Historically, what's been fashionable Cheap Sexy Clothes for the shape of the female body has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous! However, the dazzling female body has always been subject to what is covering it and history shows us that it's been covered in many different ways. Also, different parts of the feminine form have been accentuated, concealed, reduced, enlarged by the style of the current fashionable frill fripperies.

We've witnessed some almost unthinkable extremes, from devices that required a small army to force the unfortunate fashion victim into, to the flimsiest, most whimsical mere flutter of a garment. Let's take a trip back at how sexy lingerie has developed and how it got to where it is today.

To start with, let's get some terminology straightened out. Thanks to the world's most passionate language, we now usually refer to female 'underwear' as 'lingerie' - unless we're being derogatory in which case, depending on where you live, you can fill in the spaces!

When we (at least us men) think of lingerie, we think of a flimsy material embellishing the female body in a way that gives us a hint of the pleasure that lie underneath. But the 'first' lingerie, probably from one of the Ancient Greek islands, was much different. These bewitching Greek women used a boned corset fitted tightly around the midriff, not for support or even for a 'slimming' effect, but to attract their men by showing their thrusting breasts in a most conspicuous way. Maybe not what we would call lingerie today but with much the same desired effect.

As time passed, the female form took on new 'perfect' shapes dependent on the vogue. As each 'perfect' form emerged, frill fripperies were perfected and developed to flatter and accentuate that desired shape. The culture of the society dictated whether the breasts, the bottom or both would be highlighted and glorified. You could argue that nothing much has altered!

During Medieval times it was thought that the natural form and shape of a woman should be constrained and that the breasts should be firm and small. This condition was probably admirable for those normally built that way but perhaps not so good for those of a more luscious construction. Many types of corset were worn with the single purpose of flattening the breasts and/or the bottom. It has been said that, in order to draw attention to that part of the anatomy that shouldn't draw attention, some women folk wore small bells over their breasts to remind the men folk of the pleasure that still lay tantalizingly beneath.
