Claudia's Fashion Ideas

There can be no doubt that fashion has evolved in the direction of sheerer, lighter, more like skin, less like architecture. The first nightgowns were developed in the 15th century, after textiles became cheaper and at the very beginning of industrialization. Before that period, most people only had 3 sets of clothing, and sleeping in one’s attire was not unusual. By the 18th century the nascent middle class was developing a nighttime dress code, and only the lowest classes slept in their clothing or naked. The first sheer nightgown appeared on the scene in the 1950s after nylon production resumed for civilian consumption. It is an ironic fact that the war production of nylon goods resulted in overcapacity that was unused until fashion stepped in and called for a vogue of sheer sleepwear in the form of babydolls, negligees and sheer pajamas.There can be no doubt that fashion has evolved.

What woman doesn’t love to flirt? It’s nice to play at sexual innuendos and teasing in a fun way with your mate. It’s also fun to dress up and wear different outfits and pieces of lingerie to entice your mate with. It’s also a lot of fun to go shopping for sexy lingerie. Who doesn’t love looking at all the fishnet stockings and sheer chemises available in a lingerie store? Today’s lingerie comes in so many different styles and colors it’s impossible to choose what you want. A lot of the lingerie items can also be worn as everyday intimate apparel. Chemises come in a lot of soft sexy designs and are perfect to wear with a business suit to make you feel more feminine. You can also wear sexy little panties under your work clothes and no one will know except you. That also adds a little sensual spiciness to your everyday life. With today’s selection of intimates, a woman can feel feminine and flirty anywhere she happens to be.

Sometimes, it can seem like you know everything about your mate, and things have just gotten stale. Trying to find a way to rekindle both of your interest in something can feel like a daunting task, and you may keep putting it off or ignoring the problem. But some hot lingerie might just be a simple solution you can both agree on. Finding something you feel (or your partner feels) comfortable in and is visually appealing for the other may be as easy as just talking about it. Remembering not to judge one another for what you might come up with, talking about what you each find appealing could open up doors you didn’t realize were there. A surprise might be nice, too. Going to the store and picking out what you like will help you have confidence in the outfit, something that’s always attractive. It may be a real treat for both of you to get a little dressed up, whether it’s conventional lingerie or even just something you both think is cute!

I heard a story on the radio this morning about the young Queen Victoria. They were talking about corsets. The actress who was playing the role was joking that to be an English actress, one must wear a corset in the movies at least one. She claimed to be on her third movie with corsets involved and was looking forward to wearing sweatpants soon and giving her ribs a break. When you think about it, imagine having to lace up like that every day, we who have made a fashion statement out of being comfortable. The American woman barely wears control top panty hose, much less anything truly confining. But they were beautiful, those Victorian fashions. I can just picture those great skirts and fabrics and the expanse of shoulders and bust. We’d all like to sweep into a room looking that magnificent at least once, wouldn’t we? I’d take the swashbuckling cavalier too.
