Better Late than Never

Who do we thank?

When you think about lingerie, do you know where it all first began? Who do you thank for the start of lingerie? History suggests that it was the ancient Greeks that show records of women wearing a garmeant to support their breast, for the very first time.

Crazy today, Fashion Yesterday

What may seem crazy to you today was once the largest fashion of the lingerie world. Back in the early 1900s, women went with a popular look ‘’monobosom’’. Monobosom, as the name suggests, is defined as breasts hoisted together and held up in such a way that women would appear as if they had one large bosom.

It all begins small

Victoria’s Secret, a lingerie retailer that today has become a global craze, was first started only on a surprisingly small level. A married couple created Victoria’s Secret as mail-order catalog thing hoping to popularize sexy lingerie for every day wear. This mail-order catalog quickly expanded into brick and mortar stores.
