The Lingerie Lounge

Updated on February 5, 2013

Lingerie For Everyone!

Lingerie can make you feel good about yourself or it can create a sexy atmosphere when you're feeling romantic. The Lingerie Lounge offers sexy undergarments from a number of different sources so that you can shop around to find the best styles and prices.

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 glamorize lingerie and the idea of lingerie having a sexual appeal slowly developed.
