Comments Off on Lingerie Care Tips

Caring for your lingerie is important if you don’t want to spend on new lingerie after a few wears. It is important not to simply throw the lingerie into the wash with other clothes as the different types of styles as well as fabrics require special care. It may be best if you hand wash the lingerie or use light cleaning in a washing machine and clean the lingerie by itself without any other accompanying clothes.

Make sure that the detergent you use to wash lingerie is of a mild nature and also use fabric softeners to ensure that the delicate material does not get damaged. If your lingerie happens to be of an expensive nature it may even be advisable to dry clean such items. It is also important that you follow the cleaning instructions on the labels on your lingerie, and also try and avoid washing the lingerie too often as it could shorten the life of the item.

Lingerie made from synthetics such as polyester as well as rayon require especially careful handling due to their delicate nature, and are best cared for by washing in warm water with mild detergent in a sink. Most lingerie items that have padding or wires in them should be washed infrequently to prolong their life.

When you dry the lingerie make sure that the heat level is very low and do not dry for more than fifteen to twenty minutes, while line drying may also be preferable. Care should also be taken that the lingerie does not shrink as the lingerie will not only lose its shape but also become un-wearable. With a little extra care, there is no reason why the care of your lingerie should be a matter of concern. Treated rightly, you might be able to wear the lingerie longer and thus save money on not having to purchase new lingerie every so often.

Most baby doll lingerie fully exposes the legs of a woman and is considered to be very inviting for the opposite sex. Other baby doll outfits show the breasts of a woman or sometimes slightly reveal it so that it can have that tease factor.

Baby doll outfits have been around since the 1950’s. Through the years, the baby doll lingerie has developed. There are several vintage baby doll outfits for sale nowadays and they symbolize sexuality through the years.

Comments Off on Agent Provocateur Designer Lingerie Brand

Agent Provocateur is a lingerie brand that is well known in the United Kingdom. The company has stores in thirteen countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Hong Kong, the Middle East, and Canada. Their first shop was opened in London at Broadwick Street in 1994.

Agent Provocateur has been known to push the limits of lingerie advertising. Their advertising campaigns are known to be highly provocative and are normally banned in certain countries. They always try to have sexual innuendos when they advertise which causes them to get into a lot of trouble. Their models include Kylie Minogue, Paris Hilton, and Carmen Electra. These models are known to be very provocative. They can send messages of sexuality without them talking at all.

The advertising campaigns of Agent Provocateur are very creative and unconventional. They do not go main stream like everyone else. You’ll see their ads mostly on the internet, in catalogues, and in cinemas.

Why does this brand get so much heat from the press and why does it always get flagged? You’ll have to understand the philosophy behind their brand in order to realize why they always get into trouble for their advertisements. The Agent Provocateur vision is to avoid British prudery that categorizes anything to do with sex as sleazy or smutty. The goal of Agent Provocateur was to develop high quality designer lingerie that will stimulate, enchant, and arouse those that wear them and their partners. Agent Provocateur believes that this is a positive sexuality and there is nothing wrong with it. Of course, many conservative British people will attest to this. Even people around the world will say something about this too.

Agent Provocateur tries to separate the mass experience versus the personal experience. They believe in the intimacy of the sexual act versus those market forces that commercialize it. They try to personalize the woman and make her experience something intimate with her man. Agent Provocateur is definitely one brand that you would want to try out. If you believe in intimacy and hate that run off the mill experience then maybe you should start ordering Agent Provocateur products over the internet already.

The Agent Provocateur Brand was made by Joseph Corre and Serena Rees. In 2007, Corre was honoured for his services to the fashion industry but controversially rejected it in response to Tony Blair’s actions towards Iraq. Aside from the lingerie brand of Agent Provocateur, they have expanded to other items like fragrances and other beauty products.

Function of the Bra

Comments Off on Function of the Bra

There has been a very long debate going on regarding the role of bra underwear in women. One side says that bra lingerie plays an important role in supporting breasts. They say that if you do not wear bras then there will be greater chances that your breasts will sag or droop earlier than normal. On the other hand of this long debated topic, there are those that say that bras are not necessary in order to prevent the sagging or drooping of the breasts. They say that it is biologically impossible to prevent the sagging and drooping of the breasts. In time, all women will experience sagging or drooping of the breasts and the only way to correct this is through plastic surgery.

The people who believe that bra is necessary to prevent sagging have several arguments to support their belief. They say that bras prevent gravity from acting on the breasts at full force. They say that with bras, the forces of gravity are put on hold. Since the weight of the breasts will act on how they are attached to the whole body, the lesser support it has means that there will be more downward force against the attachment. More force separating the attachment of the breasts will cause more and more stress on them. Imagine jogging without a bra. More force will go downward and there will be less support for the attachment of the breasts to the body. This lack of support will cause the breasts to sag or droop in the long run.

Those that believe that bra lingerie is unnecessary argue that breasts were fine even before the invention of the bra itself. Sagging or drooping is a natural occurrence and whether you wear a bra or not, your breasts will really sag or droop because of age, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. There is no way to stop the sagging and drooping of the breasts. It is only through plastic surgery that these ageing effects can be reversed. Aside from that, breasts will always sag whether you wear a bra or not.

The decision to wear a bra or not is up to you. There are studies that show that there are no dramatic effects on sagging or drooping breasts for women who didn’t wear a bra. There are also studies that show that bras can actually help in the prevention of drooping or sagging of the breasts. At the end of the day, it is really up to you to decide which side you’ll take.
