Lingerie serves many purposes. It warms the body, protects our outer garments, offers modesty, and provides a barrier between our skin and harsh fabrics. Lingerie also supports the body and helps shape the figure according to current standards of beauty. That means lingerie isn’t just bras and briefs; it’s also sleepwear, shapewear, activewear and accesories. Lingerie includes the expensive, special-occasion stuff and the everyday, basic stuff. It’s all lingerie.
