What is lingerie and where was it derived from? The term lingerie comes from the old French word “linge” which means linen. The term lingerie came into the English vocabulary as a euphemism for scandalous clothing unbecoming of a lady. Throughout the years, the design of lingerie has varied but the appeal is in influencing key factor in the world of seduction. Let’s face it, women love lingerie and men adore them in it. So often though, people ask me what is the difference between this and that? I’m here to share with you our perspective of lingerie.

For decades the look of lingerie strived to keep the feminine presence while it exhibits flirtatious lingerie for the lady of the 21st century! A woman’s appearance is a manifesto of who she is, and her facade transpires her into mastery. At Simply Delicious Lingerie we believe that a huge part of the anticipation is the sex appeal. Finding the right piece of sexy lingerie that accentuates your curves may not always be that easy. No two women are of the same build, therefore, the determination of recognizing a gorgeous piece is quite dazzling to the woman whereas it can be mind blowing to the person undressing her.

Corsets

corset is a garment  worn to hold and shape the torso into a desired shape for artistic purposes.In recent years, the term “corset” has also been borrowed by the fashion industry to refer to tops which, to varying degrees, mimic the look of traditional corsets without actually acting as one. The most common and well known use of corsets is to slim the body and make it conform to a fashionable silhouette. Modern bustiers are a reincarnation and modified  version of their earlier 16th century linen cousins. They were called the “payre of bodies” and “stays”. Stays had shoulder straps and a small waist ending in flaps.Their shape was an inverted cone meant to compliment the large multi-layered skirts below. They pushed up the breasts, narrowed the waist and straightened the back. In the 80s Madonna brought the corset back to life as she wore them as an adornment in videos and at her concerts. Women went nuts over them and they were recreated keeping much of the appeal with an embellishing and bountiful glamorous flair!

There are basically two types of modern corsets. An overbust corset encloses the torso, extending from just under the arms to the hips. An underbust corset begins just under the breasts and extends down to the hips. Some corsets extend over the hips. A shorter kind of corset, which covers the waist area is called a waist cincher. A corset may also include garters to hold up stockings or alternatively a separate garter belt may be worn for that. Don’t forget to accessorize it with those sexy thigh high stockings or a titillating pair of fishnet stockings.

So what is the difference between a bustier and a corset? Well a bustier is shorter than a corset and does not attempt to shape the waist at all. Remember a bustier is designed to shape the bust whereas the corset is more about the hips and waist. Another way to make sense of it is to remember that a bustier shows off the tummy and the corset does a magnificent job of hiding it.

Bustiers

bustier is a splendorous one-piece, tight-fitting, sleeveless garment, designed with cups and flexible boning. It is meant to fit around your breasts and down around your ribcage. It usually ends at the waist unlike a corset. Hooks and eyes, cord or ribbon, connect most of them. They are almost always strapless.They are  meant to define a woman’s shape and enhance her breasts. The bustier is often worn on the outside directly over the skin, or over other garments like blouses, shirts & t-shirts.

Chemises

chemise is generally a woman’s garment that vaguely resembles the older shirts but is typically more delicate, most stunning and oh so provocative. Most commonly the term refers to a loose-fitting, sleeveless undergarment or  type of lingerie which is unfitted at the waist. It can also refer to a short, sleeveless dress that hangs straight from the shoulders and fits loosely at the waist. A chemise typically does not have any buttons or other fasteners and is put on by either dropping it over the head or stepping into it and lifting it up.As lingerie, a chemise is similar to babydoll,, which is also a short, loose-fitting, sleeveless garment. Typically, though, babydolls are more loose-fitting at the hips and are generally designed to more resemble a young girl’s nightgown, although many modern styles have added various sexualizing features.

Camisoles

A woman’s loose-fitting undergarment for the upper body, typically held up by shoulder straps and having decorative trimming. Camisoles are light loose fitting sleeveless tops typically made with soft cotton, delicate lace trim around the chest and held up by thin spaghetti straps. Always shorter than a chemise, the camisole typically rests on the hips but may show off the tummy too. Nowadays the camisole is a staple of any girl’s fashion and may even be worn as outerwear. Our camisoles beauty is defined with a feminine presence and an eloquent look.

Baby Dolls

babydoll is a short, sometimes sleeveless, loose fitting nightgown or neglegee intended as nightwear for women. It sometimes has formed cups called a bralette for cleavage with an attached loose fitting skirt falling in length usually between the upper thigh and the belly button. The garment is often trimmed with beautiful lace, ruffles, appliques marabou fur, bows and ribbons, optionally with spaghetti straps. Sometimes it is made of sheer or translucent fabric like nylon, chiffon, satin, or silk.

Teddy

The teddy is basically a body suit that is sexy and fun. It can have cups for a bra, with out cups and straight or have no cups at all. No matter what kind you have the teddy will be an intricate part of your wardrobe. The word teddy is probably the first thing most people think of when they hear the word lingerie, at least it is for me. An image pops up of this sexy spaghetti strapped little lacy one-piece suit right? Well the teddy is more than just that. The teddy adds flare to your clothing by enhancing what you have and hiding any flaws you might think you have. Find your favorite color and wear it with confidence. A Teddy is lingerie which combines both a camisole top and a panty into a single piece. A teddy can have many variations but most are made of light, delicate fabrics that fit smoothly and comfortably over the torso. They hug your body and fit your curves so that the breathtaking overture is captivating and astonishing!

Garter Belts

Today, a garter belt is considered exotic lingerie. The belt is worn around the waist or hips directly against your skin. The silky or fishnet stockings are attached to the garter belt from four to eight dangling straps with clips. These straps are called garters. To complete this exotic lingerie look, a pair of high-heeled shoes could be worn for an added effect. This sexy lingerie look could also be complemented with a push-up bra, see through bra or other type of matching bra. The result is a sexy look that will definitely get your partner’s attention. The temperature will go from steamy to sweltering in the bedroom with this erotic piece!
