Sexy Panties, G-Strings & Thongs
Pretty, sexy and practical panties have a history of their own. These popular undergarments that are worn by most women come in many styles and varieties which serve both fashion as well as functional purposes for today’s savvy woman. (You can learn a lot more about the various styles and functions of the many types of panties by reading our article titled 'Panties 101'.)
Women first were known to wear undergarments to cover their lower halves as far back as the time of the French Revolution. Catherine de Medici is often credited with this style of under fashion, as she needed something to cover her legs when she rode her horse sidesaddle. These original panties were actually very long, and came down to the ankles and actually looked like what we would now call bloomers.
As fashions changed throughout the years, it became necessary to have the ‘bloomer’ change as well. Parisian Can Can dancers shortened their bloomers so that more leg would show during their high kicking, tantalizing dance numbers. By the 1920’s, bloomers were far shorter than ever before and eventually became an undergarment that was used just to cover the intimate parts of a woman’s body with little if any leg involved in the coverage at all.
Panties, because of the intimate nature of their use, will always have a sexual mystique associated with them. Although most women have panties that are worn for practical purposes, it has become increasingly popular to wear panties that are sexy and pretty in addition to those that serve a more everyday purpose.
