Style Blog - The Lost Art of Ladies Undergarments

In the modern world of fashion, the intricacies of women's undergarments often go unnoticed, yet their history and evolution are rich with significance. From the restrictive corsets of the Victorian era to the sleek, minimalist designs of today, undergarments have played a crucial role in shaping women's silhouettes and styles over the centuries. 

The corset, once a symbol of femininity and social status, evolved from the stiff, boned structures of the 16th century to the more flexible, hourglass-shaped designs of the 19th century. Alongside corsets, slips emerged as a necessity to create smooth lines under dresses, providing modesty and comfort.
