This is why lingerie is more a question of mentality and of human nature. A plump woman can feel good in her body, accept who she is and have a desire to emphasize that beauty by wearing gorgeous underwear. Lingerie should respond to all these aspirations and suit every kind of woman. A designer’s work should be orientated towards this fulfilment.

However, in choosing to wear pretty and seductive underwear, women behave and carry themselves in a slightly egoistic and indeed narcissistic way. Furthermore, lingerie can help a woman feel good about her body, helping her thus to like and accept it, and in doing this, affirming a real sense of self-confidence. The reason behind it is simple. Surprisingly, although no-one can see our underwear, it contributes effectively in enhancing our silhouette and sometimes even shaping it to our personal preferences.

ingerie is directly and very strongly related to a woman’s intimacy. For centuries, men have always believed that lingerie was created with the aim of seducing them. This desire to seduce undeniably exists.

In the 1880s the front of the silhouette was increasingly emphasized, thanks to corsets with long metallic stiffeners that diminished the stomach and constricted bust and hips. From 1880-1905 a woman’s body was physically distorted into an “S” shape: her bust was pushed forward, while her hips and buttocks were propelled backwards.

ut lingerie is only rarely fully displayed due to its association with nudity, as demonstrated by Georges Feydeau’s play, Put Some Clothes On, Clarisse! in which Ventroux chastises his wife for appearing in front of her son in a camisole. “That is completely see-through!“ he tells her. Clarisse replies that she cannot be nude because she is wearing her camisole.

Roman civilization continued the war against curves. In a male-dominated society where women had no role, females were apparently prohibited from revealing their morphological traits. Some physicians even offered treatments to prevent an over-developed bust. Dioscorides advised applying a powder ground from Naxos stone to the breasts; Pliny suggested the mud used by knife-grinders; and Ovid recommended poultices of breadcrumbs soaked in milk.

The “divorce corset” (so named because it separated the breasts) introduced in 1816 continued the trend of distinctly separated breasts.

Needle lace, such as the Alençon and Venetian varieties, consists of a network of loops covered in stitches made with the needle; the technique actually comes from the refinement of openwork embroidery. Almost all contemporary lace is machine made. Machine made lace usually imitates traditional motifs and is manufactured in former handmade lace centres, such as Valenciennes and Chantilly.

from a woman’s perspective lingerie provides coverage, whereas the male sees the nudity underneath. Because of its contact with skin and its close association with feminine intimacy, lingerie was and remains an object of fantasy among men, discretely fostered by the women who wear it.
