Lingerie box is the basis
Women’s underwear. Some underwear is designed to be worn tightly under other clothing, while others (such as T-shirt or shorts) can be worn underneath as well as normal.
In addition to protecting the inner layers of the garment from soiling, the underwear is worn for a variety of other reasons, such as warmth, comfort and hygiene. Underwear is often used to manifest modesty or eroticism, sometimes both of which are present at the same time.
Men’s underwear consisted of underpants worn from the early Middle Ages and a shirt used on top (e.g. rubella). Currently, underpants are being replaced by slips or boxers.
Women wore panties – depending on age and fashion – in different lengths and made of different materials and slips. Currently, brassieres are also included in underwear. A large part of women’s underwear was used for shaping the figure: a fortune, a corset, a crinoline, a coat of arms.
Lingerie boxes and what else
Underwear worn directly on the body under clothes, to which panties now belong, appeared in Europe at the end of the Middle Ages, but at that time panties or similar garments were not yet known. In the 16th century, women wore short shorts called underpants under the spacious dresses. In the 18th century Ludwik XV issued an order obliging the actresses and dancers to wear such underwear, because of the reluctance to use it. Emperor Josephine had several hundred shirts and dresses in her wardrobe, and only two pairs of panties.
Only the elderly ladies praised this kind of protection for fear of the cold. The panties appeared in the 19th century. The introduction of machine sewing, conversion of rigid material into soft knitted fabric, resignation from wearing rigid corsets and systematic shortening of dresses caused that panties also changed their cut, length and tightness.
