Your mother wouldn’t do it, and your grandmother would have a fit at the idea. But you most certainly would. That’s right, you’re happy to wear your underwear in public – and I’ll bet you didn’t even realise you were doing it.
Not so long ago, talking knickers was a taboo subject…let alone modelling the stuff in public. However, slowly but surely since the mid 80’s designers have been sneaking underwear into their clothing styles and desensitising the population in general. Sure, the trends come and go, but the concept remains the same – wearing underwear as outerwear gives women a certain sense of empowerment and sensuality.
Corsets, stockings, shifts, crop tops, tights and even bras have made regular public appearances for years. After the 2009 introduction of lingerie modelling at fashion shows to the world, designers released all stops and launched into creating underwear-outerwear hybrids.
With the strange roads fashion trends sometimes follow, I can only guess what the next underwear trend will be.
