Welcome to our website. We are the best source for bra information and links.

Bra type apparel originated in the 1400s BC during the Minoan civilization era.

The word bra was derived from the word brassiere which is an article of clothing that covers, supports and elevates the breasts. Since the early 19th century it has replaced the corset as the most widely accepted method of supporting a woman's breasts. Did you know that Bra-wearers are getting younger!! 8 and 9 year old girls are now starting to wear bras!!

LINGERIE

Lingerie is a term for fashionable and possibly alluring undergarments. The term in the French language applies to all undergarments for either gender. In English it is applied specifically to those undergarments designed to be visually appealing or erotic.

The concept of lingerie as visually appealing undergarments was developed a long time ago during the late nineteenth century. Lady Duff-Gordon of Lucile was a pioneer in developing lingerie that freed women from more restrictive corsets. Through the first half of the 20th century, women wore underwear for three primary reasons: to alter their outward shape (first with corsets and later with girdles or bras), for hygienic reasons, or for modesty. Before the invention of crinoline, women's underwear was often very large and bulky. During the late 19th century, corsets became smaller, less bulky and constricting, and were gradually supplanted by the brassiere, first patented in the 20th century by Mary Phelps Jacob. When the First World War broke out, women found themselves filing in men's work roles, creating a demand for more practical undergarments. Manufacturers began to use lighter and more breathable fabrics. As the 20th century progressed, underwear became smaller and more form fitting, The lingerie industry expanded in the 21st century with designs that double as outerwear. The lingerie market at the turn of the 21st century was driven by the advent of modern technologies and fabrics that help in designing innovative products such as laser-cut seamless bras and moulded T-shirt bras. Designers are putting greater emphasis on rich-looking fabrics, laces, embroideries and brighter, more daring colours.

Types of Panties:

1.Classic Briefs - Also called full brief, the sides extend below the hip.

2.High-Cut Briefs - Also called French-cut Briefs, they are somewhat narrower.

3. Control Briefs - These are panties designed to give support and give a slimmer appearance and usually contain a stretch material such as spandex that may extend beyond the waist.

4. Hipster - These are similar to briefs, but are worn lower with the waistband around the hips.

5. Bikini - These are also worn at the hips, but the fabric at the sides is narrower.

6. Boyshorts - Also called Boyleg Briefs, they are styled after men's briefs and may have short legs extending below the crotch.

7.Tanga - These have full rear coverage, but the waistband is reduced to a narrow strip at the sides.

8. Thong - These have waistbands similar to tangas, but the rear coverage is not as full.

BRAS & MORE

 

The following are some suggestions for taking care of your bras so they last longer:

1. The first thing you should do is read the manufacturer labels for the ideal type of cleaning of a particular garment. Follow the instructions they provide.

2. In general we recommend that you hand wash all bras in cold water with mild soap.

3. If hand washing is difficult for you, then you may use laundry bags to place your intimates and do your laundry with a washer. Choose the delicate cycle. Use cold water and mild soap. 

4.We recommend that you air dry your bras after washing 

them. Do not use the dryer to dry your bras.

5.Stack your bras neatly in a drawer after they are dry.

6. Have a good selection of bras. Do not keep using the same bras over and over again. You can get better results from your bras by giving them time to re-energize. Please note that the fibres in your bras get stretched each and every time they are used. You have to give the fibres enough time to reset before their next use.

7. In general make sure you buy good quality and well made bras. In the long-term well made bras are easier to care for and will always last much longer.

The History of Brassieres

The history of brassieres is inextricably intertwined with the social history of the status of women, including the evolution of fashion and changing views of the body. Women have used a variety of garments and devices to cover, restrain, or modify the display and shape of their breasts. Brassiere-like or bikini-like garments are depicted on some women athletes in the 7th century BCE in the Minoan era. Similar functionality could be achieved by both outerwear and underwear. From the 16th century onwards, the undergarments of wealthier women were dominated by the corset, which pushed the breasts upwards. In the latter part of the 19th century, various alternatives were experimented with, such as by splitting the corset into a girdle-like restraining device for the lower torso, and transferring the upper part to devices suspended from the shoulder. By the early 20th century, garments more closely resembling contemporary bras had emerged, although large-scale commercial production did not occur till the 1930s. Since then bras have replaced corsets, although some women prefer camisoles and a minority go without. Brassieres are a multi-billion dollar industry dominated by large multinational corporations. During the 20th century, the emphasis on brassiere usage has shifted from functionality to fashion.
