Love Our Lace
From time immemorial women have worn undergarments to support, suppress, enhance or accentuate their bodies.
In the 16th century chemises, petticoats and corsets were designed to accentuate the female form.
By the 18th century tailored artwork and embroidery on fabrics ranging from silk and lace to sheer linen symbolised a shift towards elegance and a carefreeness.
In the 20th century bust bodices finally took over from corsets and only then did bras came to the fore when in 1939 the word entered the English dictionary for the very first time.
Advances in fabrics, designs and styles in this century allows a wider range of women around the world indulge their age-old passion for lingerie.
