The History Of Lingerie And The Evolution Of “Sexy”

Fashion’s closest answer to the puzzle of sensuality is simple: lingerie. A myriad of shape, texture and color, lingerie manipulates our individual concepts of sexy and the clothes that represent those tastes. It suggest, it flirts, but it never reveals all. And that’s the core of it’s essence: mystery. Complete exposure could never suffice, as it signifies an e-vite of constant availability. No, lingerie has always been seen as a curious subject, carefully choosing what to hide and what to bare.

Throughout history lingerie has served as women’s answer to questions of individual sensuality and suggestion, and so from the many years of bustiers, bras and the babes that wore them, we’re exposing it all.

Not to any surprise, the 1800s’ version of sexy was’t any version at all. Any suggestion of intimacy was of a covert matter, an almost shameful secret only divulged behind closed doors and only shared between man and wife. The suppression of sexuality then quite literally translated into sartorial matters: the corset. Nearly every aspect of this garment was engineered to pull, push and manipulate the female body, from the drawstrings that cinched the waist together to the whalebone that pushed the breasts forward. Such constraints had a definite affect, causing women to suffer from organ deformation, crushed ribs and even miscarriage. But the era of lingerie’s suppression would quickly come to an end as fashion’s newest invention found its limelight.

Bloomers and Bras

With Mary Phelps Jacobs’ invention of the bra in 1910, women were finally getting the choice and freedom that lingerie was meant to offer. Society’s corset requirement began to fade with WWI shortages and lingerie companies were in need of new solutions for their customers, one of these being the bra. Because of the 20s’ sleek and skimpy silhouette, women were going to need underwear of the same cloth, thus also introducing the slip. Much contrasting from the suppressive nature of earlier centuries, the slip granted a newfound liberation and simplicity. Granted, this image was quite androgynous and promoted a sort of boyish figure not usually associated with an image of sex, but by using lingerie to celebrate the female body, “sexy” was exactly the term for it. As styles changed in the 30s and 40s, underwear followed suit and women bought their lingerie in separates: bras and bloomers. These options again were a step in a positive direction, but still had a certain veneer of secrecy. Something would need to break this wall in order for a more available version of “sexy” to be found.

The Curves of Rebellion

But with the 1950s, lingerie finally developed its overt display and societal acceptance. The image of sex could finally become tangible, and this was in part due to the rise of pin-up girls. Pin-up girls were pictures of often scantily-clad models printed on posters for the walls of America. On these models were the lingerie trends of the decade, advertising everything from seamed stockings and girdles to bustiers and corselets. In total, these trends encapsulated the newest image of sex: curves. With the 60s and 70s continued an era of sexual liberation and lingerie styles again evolved, but almost in a digressional manner. The 60s version of underwear was no underwear, as seen in the decade’s infamous bra burning and invention of the No-Bra. The 70s had a return to lingerie, but in a sleeker sense with trim nightgowns and loose fabrics.

Cher And Body Suits: A Love Affair

80s lingerie could not be explained without Cher, who was famous for debuting this little number in concert. Lingerie had officially gone back to the one-piece or teddies that had been forgotten for quite some time. Along with the body suit, popular styles were thongs, g-strings and any piece with a high-cut leg. Much opposed to the 80s’ version of sex, the 90s found its version in an androgynous display of very little clothing. The most commonly known example was in Calvin Klein’s controversial ads of the decade. Even though he was technically selling clothing, his models often wore no clothing at all, challenging ideas of nudity and the connotations of sex that go with them. In addition he created the unisex Calvin Klein waistband to prove that sexuality didn’t always have to be determined by gender. While his ideas and ads were widely known, they were also heavily censored and even faced a few child pornography charges. Still, his ideas of sex represented a new version that defied past standards and limitations.

The New Sexy

Today lingerie is obviously more accessible than ever in a variety of forms, but more importantly it has contributed a modern version of sexy completely unique from past eras. This new version is not about what’s covered up or not, but about the woman underneath it all. A woman of confidence. A woman of strength. A woman who encapsulates whatever sort of sexy she wants.

After all of these years, we’re happy that this is the sort of woman that lingerie has become.

How to care for your corsets

After getting your beloved corsets, it is important to care for them.

Below are something to note to care for your beloved corsets:-

Corsets should be aired laying flat, or hung by the laces over the top of a chair, with the halves of the corset on either side. You shouldn’t roll a corset up for storage.

A corset should really be dry cleaned, but unfortunately cleaners who would handle corsets are few and far between unless you know of a theatrical cleaner in your area. If you must wash one do it so:

Wash the corset by hand in warm not hot water, NEVER in a washing machine, and wash in a mild powder and in a non-biological detergent, as they tend to attack the materials. They are all right for modern clothing that aren’t expected to last very long, but corsets are put under a lot of stress and any deterioration will vastly shorten its life.

Rinse well in running cold water – just swish around until the water runs clear but do not wring it.

Wrap in a towel and rub gently to remove as much moisture as possible.

Dry on a frame, as you would a real wool garment, and NEVER place near a heat source like a radiator, as it can warp the steels and cause uneven drying, which will warp the garment itself.

Corsets should not be washed frequently, as the metalwork, even though it may be stainless, will exhibit some corrosion, which will eventually show. The reason that Victorian women wore a chemise under, and a cover over their corsets, was so that they didn’t then need washing too frequently.

If you are looking to buy your first nice and beautiful corset, you can visit http://www.lingerie-supplies.com.  Below are a few of their beautiful selection.

So do you have what it takes to be a model?

What are the basic must have traits for any mainstream model?

It all sounds pretty shallow because it is. In the end models are clothes hangers and their role in the fashion industry is to make clothes look good so that they will sell. It is an industry heavily influenced by physical appearances. making it as a model requires the following traits and skills:

  • A slim build
  • A height somewhere between 5’8″ and 5’11” (there are exceptions)
  • Good bone structure with a symmetrical and angular face
  • Being naturally photogenic and/or a good knowledge of ones “angles”
  • Good posture and a strong runway walk (learned or natural)

What do modeling agents look for when signing a new model?

When agents look for new models to sign they look for a very specific set of physical criteria. How you look is definitely the first thing agents see. First and foremost models need to be tall and slim; for the most part they need to be slimmer than the average girl. This is the reason that the modeling industry gets such a bad rap, because the call for slim models could be seen as promoting an unrealistic body image. While this is a valid criticism there are some equally valid reasons that models need to be slender. Clothes hang better on a smaller body and the fashion industry is essentially about selling clothes and other trappings of style like cosmetics, skin care, accessories, and perfumes.

The fashion industry’s love-affair with skinny girls is not part of a conspiracy against average sized bodies. Slimmer figures are important on the runway but they also photograph better. Why? Pictures are two dimensional and for this reason the body loses some of its angles in photographs. Without the proper angles even slender girls can appear heavy in pictures. Lighting plays an important role in counteracting the flattening effects of photography but it can’t correct for all the effects of transferring a three dimensional object on to a two dimensional piece of paper. Using a slim model also helps eliminate the problems associated with losing the all important angles.

What is meant by “having good angles” or “knowing your angles?”

Often you’ll hear agents and photographers talking about “knowing your angles” and this is something that contributes to the next important trait that models must have; models must be photogenic. They must take a good picture. Even the prettiest girls can take terrible pictures and the reasons are simple. Some elements of being photogenic can be learned but many of them are at the mercy of genetics.

Knowing your angles, knowing how to pose and knowing how to hold a pose convincingly without looking strained are important and can all be learned. What can’t be learned is bone structure. Models almost always have very angular faces with strong yet balanced features. Symmetry is also important; most models have very symmetrical faces meaning one eye is not bigger or lower on the face than the other, the nose is centered on the face, the cheekbones are high and level and the jaw line is even. Ironically, angular faces are often considered odd looking in real life. In a three dimensional world angles create shadowing which can look strange at times.

So do you have what it takes to be a model?

We are looking for young and photogenic girls to be our models at www.lingerie-supplies.com to showcase our new Wella corsets and bustiers as well as other sex lingerie collections.
