Let’s face it, appearances are important in the world of dating. What you’re wearing projects a certain image to others. If you wear jeans and a t-shirt, you’re seen as casual, while a form-fitting shift dress gives off the impression of a sophisticated allure. Regardless of what you’re wearing on the outside, what’s underneath is what’s really impressive.
Lingerie has been around since the 1900’s, but what constituted as lingerie in the 1900’s is now mere underwear to us modern women. These days, the world of lingerie is filled with garters, bustiers, corsets and teddys. Soft and sensual fabrics such as lace, silk and even leather, are used to amp up the sex appeal.
