A little history of underwear and 10 most interesting lingerie sets
On a mosaic of the 4th century BC graceful girls in underwear sets resembling modern swimwear or underwear are depicted. In fact, the girls portray the sports competitions of these distant times. At the same time, such a thing as underpants, surprisingly, was present exclusively in the men's wardrobe.
In the sixteenth century, women in Italy began to wear knickers in protest, or at least in order to protect themselves from hypothermia. Pantaloons acquired the erotic charm thanks to the courtesans and only a few centuries later moved to the plane of the Puritan and even asexual item of clothing.
Thanks in part to Gabrielle Chanel’s rebelliou in the 1950s and 60s, the production of surprisingly frank sconces, belts with fasteners for stockings and seductive panties was in full swing.
The sexual revolution of the 60s freed up the desire of society to demonstrate sensuality and the world saw the first bikinis and products that resemble thongs. One of the most striking sex symbols of those times was the inimitable dancer and model, Batty Page.
Today we have the opportunity to choose lingerie of the most inconceivable shapes and sizes - from thin interwoven strips to cutesy pantaloons with ruffles in the style of Marie Antoinette.
We have selected 10 sets of underwear that are definitely worth keeping in shape during quarantine.
