On your wedding night, there are so many different choices when it comes to lingerie. Below, we have a few options for you to peruse through and get those creative ideas flowing! Remember to choose something you feel confident and sexy in. Choosing something extravagant or delicate or dominant is all at your fingertips. You’re open to spice up the night with a masquerade mask or a teddy with body contouring straps. After all, this is your special day and there’s no time to be afraid of the boldest, baddest version of yourself! Bra and Panty Set This is our most basic product that comes in a set. These two typically matching pieces allow you to wear a little bit less while leaving your most intimate parts up to the imagination. This is a great way to accentuate your chest and midsection while not showing everything quite yet. The Babydoll This lingerie is similar to the bra and panty set but with a sexy addition. The babydoll comes as a two part set as well. The top is complemented by a sheer fabric that falls from the bra. This piece is added to cover the midsection. Typically, the sheer fabric is lightweight and loose fitting for your comfort and coverage. This piece gives elegance and delicacy to the body that no other lingerie can. The Teddy This one piece is similar to a bodysuit that you can slip into. It’s usually simple to put on and allows for coverage in all areas you desire. These can also be played with as it’s easy to customize additions such as a halter top,a choker, ribbons, or straps if you wish. These also allow you to play up areas you feel most confident with accentuating certain parts of your body. Bustier The bustier is similar to a corset as it hinches the waist and fully covers the midsection. It’s purpose is to accentuate your bust and hips. This is a great piece of lingerie to own when you want to shamelessly show off those curves while tapping into the traditional wedding corset look. This is also a lovely piece to accessorize with straps, stockings, or garters. Have fun! Garters and Garter Belts The origin of garter belts was to help keep stockings from falling down. With the evolution of intimate wear into what it has become today, garters and garter belts have transformed into their own statements add a seductive ornamental touch to any lingerie set. They cinch the waist, emphasize curves, and elongate legs. The straps are typically adjustable to maintain perfect fit and conform to your desired length. The wonderful addition of garters is their flexibility to be used with many different tops, pantys, or proudly stand on their own!
History of LingerieLingerie is hardly a new concept in the field of women’s fashion. However, as the style shifts with the ever-changing times, so does lingerie’s functionality and purpose. Embracing a wide range of uses like sport to shapewear, lingerie’s modernization rides a fine line between practicality and beauty, utilizing both characteristics to create what we see on shelves today. Dating back to Ancient Greece, women began using gauze wrapped around their chests for sport. While not for beauty, these are the first uses of a bra specifically for women’s comfort. Called mastedetons, these breast bands can be found in a painting named, “Coronation of the Winner” where three women are fitted in these bands while playing sport. As a result, this piece has also been referred to as “Bikini Mosaic.” The next evolution of undergarments for women in the Middle Ages also had purpose for simple practicality. Women wore shapely linens under their clothes in order to maintain the cleanliness of their outerwear. In these “Dark Ages,” washing was not a priority so steps to maintain personal hygiene and comfort took to undergarments for women. Now begins the transformation into luxury lingerie. At the time, the beginning of shapewear was spearheaded by the wealthy who created corsets-like undergarments in order to cinch waists and accentuate breasts. This expanded the whalebone corsets in the 1400s as waists were tightly cinched and hips were extended and exaggerated. The continuation of this trend continued into the Victorian Era which thus began the irresistibility of the hourglass figure. As corsets, pantaloons, and silk underwear became luxurious, women began using these additions for beauty underneath the show of the dress. The process of unveiling each piece of clothing underneath these intricate and complicated dresses gave the world the first “strip tease.” This idea spread and began a sexual revolution of beauty and eroticism in the Victorian Era. Following this period, luxury lingerie skyrocketed as flappers trailblazed the use of lingerie to reject the shapely Victorian corsets and began the mass production of bras with two cups
