History of Stockings

History of Stockings

 

 

What makes a woman’s legs sexier to look at is when it’s covered by a stocking. History of stockings tells us that it may also be synonymous to pantyhose, hold ups or thigh highs. But just the same, stocking refers to hosiery worn by women. It is the general term for a stocking that is used with the aid of a suspender belt. A suspender belt is meant to hold the stockings in place. Thus, it creates a sexier look when worn by women.



A pair of stockings may look just like a pair of socks, only that it’s smoother in texture and finer to the touch. Both may also have a function of keeping the body warm when it’s cold. However, a stocking functions more than that. In fact, when it was first discovered before the 1590’s, a stocking was made of woven cloth. When knitting machines were invented, they were meant for making stockings. Stockings then were made of materials like cotton, silk, linen, or wool.



Stockings have gone a long way in providing warmth for the body. As it evolved through the centuries, stockings still keep the body warm - not only of the women wearing them, but also for the men who heat up when they see sexy women wearing the hosiery. With the changing fashion of the times, the stockings came in tune with every style and fashion that evolved through the years. In the 1920’s, miniskirts became popular. Hemlines of women’s dresses rose above the knees, and the legs were exposed. To leave something to the imagination, the exposed legs were covered with stockings. They were made of sheer and were made of rayon or silk. This became a fashion which made women look sexier.



Pantyhose made its first appearance in the 1940’s when it was worn in film and theater shows. In the 1950’s, continued wear of pantyhose contributed to the decline in the wearing of stockings.

 

 

 
History of Burlesque

History of Burlesque

 

The word “burlesque” evokes several meanings. Today’s generation may associate the word with something “sexy” or anything sexual, but in truth, it’s far from these in the past. In fact, in the history of burlesque its original meaning which is Italian means “mockery.” It was also used to refer to a series of entertainment that used sketches and what we call nowadays as “cartoons”. It also included mockery and ridicule, and even distortion. Now, that’s far from being sexy or sensuous.

As the years unfolded, burlesque really lived up to its current name. There were stage shows in the mid-1800’s in the United States wherein stars performed on stage. It was called stage burlesque. Dancers did exotic numbers and performances on stage. Some stars got famous because they were so good at burlesque shows. Popular names like Mae West and Fannie Brice of Hollywood started as burlesque stars.

Later, in the 1920’s, the meaning of the word became more provocative and daring. Burlesque became associated with “strip-tease” show. Imagine a sexy lady gyrating on stage, to the tune of sexy background music. At the end of the strip tease, nothing is left to the imagination. You can imagine how the male audiences gaped in awe and thirst as the show progressed and halted. Because it was too vulgar and too provocative, burlesque shows were banned. It went into hiatus for some decades because movies flourished along with the popularity of night clubs. But like history that keeps on repeating itself, it started to resurrect in the 1990’s  and burlesque became popular again. This time however, it had a sexier appeal but just the same, it’s still burlesque.

“A rose by any name would still smell as sweet.” And though burlesque may be called by another name, it would still be burlesque - not mockery or cartoon or distortion as it originally meant – but a dance that can tickle one’s imagination!

 

 

Corset

 

Ask any woman if she desires an hourglass figure. Definitely, the answer would be a resounding “yes.” Though modern technology makes having a sexy figure easier to attain, nothing compares when it’s done the natural way. For centuries, ladies have attained the whistle bait figure of a 24 inch-waistline with the aid of a corset. Yes, it’s the secret of women for ages. A corset holds and shapes the torso into a desired shape- specifically the trim and slim shape of a waistline.



Indeed it’s true that ” beauty lies in the eyes of a beholder”, but you can’t deny that a perfectly shaped figure and a slim waistline is definitely an attraction for men. If not, why would women desire to keep their waistline  a perfect 24- or lesser? It’s not about “feeling good” about one’s self alone. It’s about being attractive to men. It’s about feeling sexy- and moving sexy. It’s feeding one’s ego with worthy comments and feelings of sexiness which eventually would make one pretty confident about one’s self.
