Most generally Lingire refers to undergarments worn by females. These garments are made of stretchy, sheer, Flexible and decorative materials such as nylon, polyester, Lycra, silk and other sheer fabrics. Sometimes it simply refers to functional synthetic or cotton undergarments that women wear.
The word Lingire comes from the French word linge, which means “washables”, stated like ‘faire le linge’, “do the laundry”–connected with lin which signifies washable linen. Linen was the material that European undergarments were made of before cotton from Egypt and later from India were introduced.
Origins Of Lingire
The idea of Lingire referring to visually appealing underwear for women developed in the late nineteenth century. Lady Kuff-Gordon from Lucile was the main pioneer that started developing Lingire that gave women freedom from restrictive items such as the corset. From the mid 19th century through to the early part of the 20th century, women only wore undergarments for three main reasons. First for hygienic reasons, for modesty, and to alter the outward appearing shape (with girdles, bras and corsets). Undergarments for women were very bulky before crinoline was invented. Starting in the latter part of the 19th century, garments started being made that were less constricting and bulky. Mary Phelps Jacob was the first to patent the brassiere in the 20th century. During the WW1 women were drafted into filling men roles at work. This made more practical undergarments for women a big demand. Finally manufactures started using more breathable and lighter fabrics.
The 20th century made the transition to smaller and more form fitting undergarments for women. In the 60′s we started seeing Lingire manufactures like “Fredrick’s of Hollywood” bringing out more glamorized Lingire. In the 21st century the Lingire manufactures started designing underwear that could also be worn as outerwear. The French would refer to this type of clothing ‘dessous-dessus’ which roughly translates as innerwear as outerwear.
The transition in function, for women’s undergarments, has run the gambit from merely functional for modesty to a fashion statement. While there are still simply functional underwear for women, the vast majority would fit more into the category of Lingire that is comfortable, beautiful, and even romantic in nature.
Hear is a short list of what some of the Lingire is currently named:
Babydoll-a negligee or short nightgown worn at night
Basque-a form-fitting. bodice or coat
camiknickers-camisole and knickers joined as one outfit
Cheeky -exposes the buttocks
Corsage by elastic
Drawers-some with are split where the crotch seam was left open
Garter – Garter belt – used to keep stockings up
Jersey night shirt
The statement found in some advertising “You’ve come a long way baby” often refers to and is accompanied with sales in modern or current ladies undergarments. Today many, if not most,women’s undergarments are worn as fashion statements or as romantic enticements for the pleasure of men.
