Are you under an impression that lingerie was always this beautiful and comfortable? If YES, then you are dearly mistaken my friend. Lingerie has evolved thoroughly from the time of its inception, and the sexy pieces you see now, is the result of these evolutionary changes.
Corset was the first only available version of female innerwear available in the 16th to the 19th century. Women wore them for the sole purpose of achieving thinner waistlines. These corsets were so tight that many women lost their lives due to contraction because of the corset’s tightness.
The actual evolution in the lingerie industry began after the First World War, when women started entering in the corporate scenario. Women felt the need of an underwear that was both comfortable and pragmatic.
