Through the ages, what was fashionable for the shape of the female body has gone from one extreme to the other.
However, the charming female body has always been subject to what is happening and history shows us that it has been covered in different ways.
In addition, different parts of the female form have been intensified, obscured, reduced, augmented by the style of the current fashionable ornaments.
We have witnessed unimaginable extremes, ranging from devices that have forced a small army to force the hapless fashion victim to be the loveliest, whimsical and fanciful.
Let's take a look back in time on the evolution of sexy lingerie
When we (at least we, men, think of the world) think of lingerie, we think of a fragile material embellishing the female body so as to give us an idea of the delights that are hidden below.
But the 'first' lingerie, probably from one of the islands of ancient Greece, was very different.
These captivating Greek women used a boned corset fitted around the belly, not to support or even for a slimming effect, but to attract their men by showing their breasts depressed in the most obvious way.
Probably not what we would call lingerie today, but with about the same desired effect.
As time went on, the female form adopted new perfect forms depending on what was in it.
In medieval times, it was thought that the natural form of a woman should be narrowed and that the breasts should be firm and small.
This situation was probably satisfactory for those built naturally in this way, but perhaps less well for those of a wider construction.
It has been said that in order to draw attention to that part of the anatomy that was not to attract attention, some women wore ringing bells around their necks to remind men of the pleasures that still awaited them.
The Renaissance saw another change in the favorite female form.
The women now had to have cone-shaped breasts, a flat stomach and a thin waist.
Towards the end of the 19th century, the brace supported not only breasts but also newly developed stockings.
