First of all utilitarian, the underwear seems very brief during Greece and ancient Rome.
Under the traditional shtetl, a woman from Hellenistic Greece wears a linen jacket covering several systems consisting of ribbons to control female morphology. To erase femininity by flattening the chest and hips, she wears an abdomyosum, bandage forming a belt under the chest to keep it. It can be worn incendantly on chitone or directly in contact with the skin. To hide the hips and abdomen, she used shingles, a belly band, girls wear mastodon, thin tape rounded the chest to prevent the development of the breast. Silhouette of Greek women is deliberately deliberate and attests to the taste of ancient Greeks for women with less developed breasts. Some doctors will go so far as to suggest treatments to prevent the development of the statue.
Romanian women usually carry a tunic or a dome, and under the same devices as Greek women. Hips are spoiled by shingles, and released from the girls with the help of a bandage Alchenya or roll, the Roman equivalent of Mastoditon. The larger bust is crushed by the leather mamilyar. The most widely used device is Struvium, a bandage similar to the Greek Bodyssey. Some of the underwear of the time looks as exotic as the bikini or the current panties and bras.
The Middle Ages (486 to 1598)
Lingerie is completely ignored from the fifth century to the dawn of the sixteenth century. Only a piece of cloth placed no longer under Obodesm but on the chest, called Gorgiti, will be worn as a supplement for coarse cotton or linen tunic is also under stress.
Corset carefully, whale and reduce the size, only exist of the Renaissance. It is not the Middle Ages who know nothing of it.
He appeared in the Spanish court, then quickly spread to other courts in Europe. The corset first forms the body of the nobles, where it is supposed to mean righteousness and firmness of spirit and morality, wishing to distinguish itself from the society that governs. And soon imitate fashion in the bourgeois circles. It was not until the seventeenth and eighteenth century that a large part of the population carried it, going up to the most popular circles in a simpler and less whale version. But the women of the people who want to imitate the great ladies will be harnessed by caricaturists but will be socially acceptable.
Leather corset for a humble person
In the sixteenth century
The corset makes a conical silhouette with a low point in the waist and a flattened chest. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, there will be little or no decrease in size but rather a conical formation of the recession. Born of masculine and military world, the corset is seen as physical and moral shields, and is reserved only for high society. Women do not wear underwear under her dress, except Queen Catherine de Medicis who put on pants for horseback riding.
[The first appearance of the pants is due to the cotton pants that the young girls wore under their robe. Then the latter will be imposed on women in a shortened version by health experts (19th century movement) who refuse to see them without intimacy. Pink or originally white, women’s panties will then be black from the early 20th century until the First World War, for honest women. This black who will become a 40 years philosophy code. In the eighteenth century, the wearing of shorts will be imposed by order of the police lieutenant of the opera blocks during their performance, the issue of decency. In the 19th century, people were washing a little but the shirt had to be immaculate. There was talk of worn clothes on the body of knitted leather. Since the sixties pants are no longer boxer shorts, using new synthetic textiles and different colors].
