Skimpier. Lacier. Sexier. Pushier.
Seems to be on the rise these days.
No less than sacrosanct Miss USA contestants were wearing revealing lingerie for a recent photo shoot.
Venus Williams was turning heads at the French Open last week with her lacy lingerie inspired tennis dress.
Dita Von Teese continues to tease for her Wonderbra lingerie line with smaller panties and bras that are discreetly installed with quick-release magnetic clasps.
Well, it all behooves us to ask, what's going on—and coming off.
"It’s not about doing it for your lover," Dita says, "It's about embracing womanhood."
Maybe it's that simple.
“Lingerie” derives from the French word 'linge' for linen. While it applies in France to all undergarments for either sex, it was originally introduced into the English language as a euphemism for scandalous underclothing.
(Negligee, from the French "neglect," is mainly for the boudoir though it strays occasionally.)
Where did it all start?
I'll be brief.
With men, the loincloth.
Except for pondering the age old question—what do men wear under their kilts—women's undergarments are far more fascinating.
We do know that women of Crete, around 2000 B.C, wore a tight whalebone corset and breasts were bared.
Definitely ahead of the curve.
In the medieval era, it was all about concealing breasts and women would decorate their flattened chests with little bells.
“Come and get it?”
The Renaissance brought a renewed focus on curves, and many women actually passed out from the excessive constriction at the waist.
By the end of the 18th century, doctors, (the ones that had wives) finally got the message and were speaking out about the health hazards of corsets.
Herminie Cadolle in 1905, invented the brassiere, and was quickly followed by stockings, garters and more than a few men.
The flapper period silhouette was smooth and curve-free.
In the 1930s we discovered women had a figure and the girdle was born.
Even though thongs are the fastest selling women's underwear, African tribal people and Japanese fundoshi wore them as their only garment around 2000 years ago.
Sisqo's "Thong Song," singing about—the thong, th-thong, thong, thong may have put it over the top.
I’m all for anything that makes women feel good about themselves.
Being that it was predominately us male idiots that subjected women to all sorts of confinement in the first place.
Feel free to be as revealing as you like on the subject.
