Lingerie is a term for women's fashion undergarments.
It derives from the French word 'lin' for linen. While the term
in the French language applies to all undergarments for either
sex, in English it is applied only to those women's undergarments
designed to be visually appealing or erotic, typically incorporating
materials such as lace and silk, and not applied to functional
The concept of lingerie being visually appealing is relatively
recent. Up through the first half of the 20th century women selected
underwear for three major purposes: to alter their shape (first
with corsets and later with girdles or bras), for reasons of hygiene,
or for modesty. Women's underwear was often very large and bulky.
As the 20th century progressed underwear became smaller and more
form fitting. In the 1960s 'controversial' lingerie manufacturers
such as Frederick's
of Hollywood begin to glamourise lingerie and the idea of
lingerie having a sexual appeal slowly developed.
Before recent times, women's underwear were made with the primary
function of body contortion. In the 1940s, Fredericks of Hollywood
opened shop in Hollywood and began selling corsets and lingerie
with a much more fashionable appeal to them. These new styles
of women's undergarments possessed a greater sexual feel, made
even more glamorized by models such as Bettie Page.
Colorful, bright and flashier fashions of women's lingerie were
becoming available. More fabrics such as satin, lace and silk
began to be incorporated into the makeup of women's lingerie,
making them more desired by females and more sensual to males.
This is perhaps the great turning point when panties became more
then simple hygiene products and developed into an icon of sexuality
Since then, women in flattering lingerie have become a staple
of several functions of men's popular culture. Several men's magazines
such as Maxim and Lowrider often use images of attractive females
in sensual lingerie to capture mainstream appeal.
During the 1960s, there was a stir among the old, traditional
views of women's undergarments that they wanted to look more like
females anatomies. Female anatomy was largely misunderstood due
to censorship of the subject. Some feminist women were proclaiming
how traditional women's undergarments were created to impose control
and distort the appearance of women's figures. This movement caused
many females to have a new outlook on how they viewed their undergarments.
The underpants began to have themselves made more like woman anatomy.
Not long after, in the 1970s, a new chapter in women's taste
opened. In the 70's, women's undergarments became even more sexualized
due to the sexual revolution going on at that time. The underpants
got smaller and skinnier and began to sexualize themselves more
In today's society, panties have become an entity in themselves.
Considered by some to be taboo, the lingerie industry has boomed.
Lingerie chains such as Victoria's Secret and Frederick's of Hollywood,
hold annual modeling shows to showcase new varieties of panties
and other assorted lingerie.
Several non-nude pornography websites survive off selling photo
sets of women posing in panties and other lingerie.
In most modern cultures, panties have become a bit of a cultural
icon describing sexual mischief and a fun way of life, especially
for high school and college age girls who are more likely to enjoy
them than the woman who grows up wearing granny panties. In Japan,
panties (pantsu) are commonly depicted as being a highly flirtatious,
naughty element to a female's persona.
When a girl's skirt comes up high enough for her panties to be
seen, it is called a 'panty shot'. Many websites on the internet
make profits from selling the aforementioned kind of pornography
When a male or female wears clothes without undergarments, it
is often referred to as Going Commando or, in the male version,
