					Lingerie is a term for fashionable and alluring women's undergarments. It comes from
the word linge which means washables.

In the early days lingerie was made from a washable linen before the introduction of
cotton from Egypt and India. Later on there was the invention of lycra and nylon
which was used in the manufacture of lingerie.

Although in Europe the word lingerie is normally describing male or female
undergarments when the word lingerie is commonly used it normally refers to
women's under garments and is normally designed for the visually appealing. The
most common material used for the manufacture of lingerie now days is satin,
polyester, lace or silk.

fitting being more appealing to the female and also being much more comfortable for
them to wear.
