Lingerie for women has come a long way from the boned corsets worn by the women of early Crete and the whalebone corsets worn in the 18th century. In those days women were wearing the undergarments to attract men and to display what was thought to be the appealing form of the day.
Today's women’s lingerie is designed more for the woman in that it is made to be comfortable in addition to being sexy. This has resulted in a boom for women’s lingerie. We see intimate sexy lingerie showing up everywhere.
We have practical lingerie which is bought for everyday use. This includes everything from everyday garments for work to just plain standard night time sleepwear. Sometimes you just want something plain for lounging around in and women’s lingerie doesn't always have to be babydolls and teddies.
Then there is the intimate lingerie category. Some women who buy this type of lingerie do so to feel sexy throughout the day having the knowledge that they are hiding something provocative under their everyday clothing. This also can give a woman a sense of power and confidence.
Finally, we have sexy lingerie! This is the kind of lingerie that is designed to seduce and entrance. While usually worn for special occasions it can be exciting to wear nightly if you have several different items to make it stay interesting and fun.
Have fun with shopping for lingerie and don't be afraid to take a walk on the wild side.
