Our wonderful undergarment that accompanies us on a daily basis has a long and ancient history, which began around the second millennium before Christ.
Already we see sketches of our current lingerie in Crete, in the statues of goddesses Snakes, found in 1903 in an archaeological expedition led by Arthur Evans, and are dated to approximately 1 600 years BC, the figurines are Currently at the Museum Heraklion archaeological (Crete, Greece).
The goddesses use a species of underbust corset (bodice that falls below the breast, leaving it exposed, but prancing), boosting her breasts to show.
In Archaic Greek, we found female paintings using the proto bra (the prototype of the current BRA), a strip of fabric that was passed around the thoraxand/seios fabric bands wrapped so as to cover the area of the hip and groin, as a kind of Pampers.
This model was still very utilizadoem Rome, around 40 Bc, while in Greece were triangles tied with wires on the sides (nossaaaaa will be the great-tatarara-a lot of thing of our bikinis triangle top?) that were used under the robes to bask in Athens.
In the middle ages, the first drawings of what we can call pantsuit: Cota (tunic with lace), the Beaud (corset tied back with frilled forming a kind of skirt), the Sorquerie (similar to the Quota) and the “Sukkot” (a species vest overlay dress).
With the Renaissance, the era of the eroticism, the corsets and corseletes gained much importance, raising the breasts, leaving larger, tapering the waist to give greater prominence.
t is this time nothing was thought of comfort, because they were developed by men. There were pieces that weighed over a pound! All in the name of eroticism, aiming to press to highlight. But in 7 of September 1675, because of complaints that women were “pawed” by tailors, French Parliament authorizes seamstresses to make underwear to solve this problem and contributing to the improvement of parts more comfortable and light, but don’t think that were easier to use.
A peek at this video showing how it was complicated you dress this time, I was tired just watching!
Women’s life was never easy isn’t it?
