What is lingerie?

Lingerie is a term for fashionable and alluring women's
undergarments. It comes from the word linge which means
washables.

In the early days lingerie was made from a washable linen
before the introduction of cotton from Egypt and India.
Later on there was the invention of lycra and nylon which
was used in the manufacture of lingerie.

Although in Europe the word lingerie is normally describing
male or female undergarments when the word lingerie is
commonly used it normally refers to women's under garments
and is normally designed for the visually appealing. The
most common material used for the manufacture of lingerie
now days is satin, polyester, lace or silk.

The concept of lingerie as a very fashionable item started
in the early 19th Century with corsets, girdles and bras.
The lingerie industry has really expanded it's manufacture
and marketing in the 21st Century. Manufactures and Fashion
Houses are now really pushing the limits with their sexy
and fashionable designs with colours and fitting being more
appealing to the female and also being much more
comfortable for them to wear.

Women today are finding that the lingerie now available on
the market have much more sex appeal than there used to be
in the old days. Some fashionable lingerie can even double
up as outerwear. lingerie is now available as wedding
lingerie, designer lingerie, outsize lingerie. The
Victorian lingerie is now also available.

Lingerie boutiques are very popular in our shopping centres
and in our major cities like London, Paris, Rome, New York
and even cities such as Beijing in China and Dubai In the
Middle East.

More and more partners are going into boutiques and
choosing a item of lingerie for their partners as a special
gift for a special occasion.

Lingerie parties at home are also a way of women purchasing
this type of item. These parties allow women to try on some
articles before buying and the evenings can also be fun as
guests normally bring a bottle of something for
refreshments.

Lingerie is also available in gift packs. One of the most
busiest period for the lingerie business is the period
running up to valentines Day.

With the introduction of the world wide web, internet web
sites are becoming a very good means of buying and selling
lingerie. The internet is full of web sites selling the
latest fashion in lingerie. As these web sites have lower
overheads than the local boutique shop the prices are
generally cheaper. Millions are spent each year on lingerie
and the.The web site market is growing rapidly each day.
