n modern times, erotic lingerie has become relatively civilized compared to the past.
On the one hand, it no longer hurts at every turn, bringing irreversible damage to women's health. On the other hand, it can not only be a prop to please men, but also a toy for women's self-pleasure.
To discuss the history of sexy lingerie, we first need to look at how ordinary lingerie has evolved.
With the rise of the feminist movement at the end of the 19th century, women became more aware of what they needed, and the corset, which was so tight that it could strangle, finally left the stage and was replaced by a looser, lighter lingerie for women.
Then, as the number of women participating in social activities increased, the legendary bra emerged.
The first bra was born in 1913, made by New York socialite Mary Phelps Jacob out of two handkerchiefs and ribbons. The following year, the business-minded woman patented her bra and began marketing and promoting it.
At the end of World War I, avant-garde women in Europe and America wore bras, which soon after spread to Asia, Africa, Latin America and other regions.
In the 1920s, with the development of the feminist movement, young women called "modern girls" (Flappers) saw cutting their hair short, wearing short skirts and listening to jazz music as a trend.
They also wore lingerie that did not emphasize their body types.
In the 1930s, more and more women went to work, and bras were designed with practicality in mind to facilitate their work. The American lingerie manufacturer Maiden form differentiated the cups for bras to make them fit better.
In the 40's and 50's, Maiden Form also designed conical underwear like torpedoes, which became popular. As history progressed into the 50s and 60s, the styles and types of bras evolved, from padded underwear that made the breasts look full and plump to the steel ring underwear that supported and gathered the breasts, but was anathema to many modern women.
In the 70s, sports underwear emerged to meet the needs of women's sports.
In the 80s, women's lingerie designs became more sexy and daring, and Victoria's secret was created in the same period and quickly became a sexy lingerie brand that became popular worldwide.
At that time, people often had to go through a lot of trouble to buy a sexy lingerie for the boudoir. However, the creation of Secret in 1977 gave consumers a more diverse choice and unlocked people's imagination for erotic lingerie.
Unfortunately, after 43 years of glory, the performance of the Secret has been slipping, and the concept has been questioned by some feminists. This shows that people's aesthetics are constantly changing. Especially for women who have gained economic independence and the right to speak, many people's demand for lingerie has changed from "shaping" and "covering up shortcomings" to "comfort" and "show your true self". "Show your true self".
But as a special clothing to help in bed, the market for erotic lingerie has not only not shrunk, but also has more patterns and play ...... This is also worth thinking about, in the end what women want?
