Intimate Apparel: Who Is It For?

Who Wears Intimate Apparel?

Let’s take a look at intimate apparel and the role it has come to play in modern society. Most will say that intimate apparel is for women or more specifically, for a woman to wear to entice her lover. Most heterosexual males are of this mainstream opinion. You may be surprised to find that many women today do not agree. corset.laurie.ct_1_largeThese are the women who have found confidence in their sexual appetites. They are attracted to a man that will throw on a pair of form fitting, or see through mesh briefs without a care. The men who take the extra step to please them visually and not with technique or performance alone are their treasure. Today the term “lingerie” is more often referred to as “intimate apparel” as it has progressed beyond the red light district affiliations typically associated with women who wore these garments. The fashion industry has broadened to include seductive male attire on a larger scale. More men are wearing these items which had previously been purchased mainly by male exotic dancers for their performances.

Some willingly and others having been sold into the profession. Many of them were the favored bed-mates of wealthy men of court. However, they were free to live independently and amass their own fortunes. Unlike mistresses, the courtesans did not seek to have the love-or children of their wealthy lovers. These women were often required to be easily identified by their type of dress in order to conduct their business within a city.
