After the First World War, lingerie became less expensive and corsets were discarded in favour of more comfortable clothing. It was at the beginning of the 20th century that the most sensual lingerie burst onto the scene, which was perfected over the following decades.
During the 1930s and 1940s, femininity in clothing was revived with the help of the cinema, which promoted the appearance of the bra and nylon stockings.
The 60s were a turning point for sexuality, what we would know as the sexual revolution that was promoted with the approval of the contraceptive pill in the USA. A decade of social change in which anti-subjugator demonstrations were held as a symbol of women’s liberation.
The underwear continues with its process of becoming smaller and smaller giving way to the 80’s with the irruption of the thongs, where different artists enhanced sexual provocation and the use of sophisticated lingerie also in everyday life.
