Lingerie, like any other fashion accessory, has undergone many transformations over the decades. From the agonising apodesme used in Ancient Greece to the peculiar pantalettes of the 1800’s we have seen it all.
Sex experts Katie Lasson and Tatyana Dyachenko from Dimepiece LA have created a handy infographic which delves into the changing fashion trends of lingerie over the last 100 years.
“What I found most interesting whilst doing the research for the infographic is the concept that lingerie should be visually appealing didn’t come into effect until the late 19th century.” Katie
Lady Duff-Gordon of Lucile was one of the main pioneers for developing lingerie that freed women from the traditional restrictive undergarments such as corsets. The famous Flappers of the 1920’s further cemented these ideals with their blatant disregard for society standards and desire for more free-flowing lingerie.
Both Katie and Tatyana understand the important role that lingerie plays in a person sexuality and sexual experiences. The right underwear can transform the way you feel about yourself. It gives you a confidence boost that you never knew you needed.
Katie had this to say “Lingerie is a tool that, when used correctly, can help you to feel more sexy and confident. Everyone deserves to feel good in their own skin and sexy underwear has the power to transform the way you feel about yourself”.
Tatyana says “Remember to wear lingerie for you, if you feel good it shines through and makes you appear more attractive to others. Confidence is sexy so embrace your body, curves and all. It’s time for you to feel good and lingerie can help you achieve that”.
