Getting to Know Your Babydoll

2 PC Lace Tie Front Peek-A-Boo Baby Doll

Today’s sexy fashion has exposed more and more people to the different kinds of lingerie. Unfortunately, not much people are really familiar with how sexy lingeries came to be.

Take the case of babydolls. Very few people are aware that the name “babydoll” was inspired by a movie of the same name which starred Carroll Baker as a 19-year-old nymphet.

Babydolls first came into the public’s eye in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. During that time, babydolls were made of lace-trimmed bed jacket. The hemlines is usually six inches bove the knee. From then on, babydolls became a part of fashionable day wear.

Lately, however, women have found a better way of wearing the babydoll – as a lingerie. Instead of a bed jacket, sheer and see-through materials were used. A number of babydolls even feature bra cups as well as matching panties. They can also be a bit shorter with most ending near the buttocks.

Many fashion experts believe that the babydoll would be around for a long time. So, if you are looking for a way to make your nights sizzle, then go get yourself some babydoll!

Till next time, flaunt on!

The Rise Of The Bikini

Yes, even I can’t believe that it’s already Fall. It seems like, just the other day, we’re in the middle of summer. Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit here.

As a last salute to our friendly bikinis, we go down memory lane and relive once more the rise of the bikinis.

The first bikini ever saw light in 1946. It was named after the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Although the idea of bikinis have been around since 1600 BC, it was Jacques Heim and Louis Reard who pushed bikini into the spotlight.

Heim who was a French couturier designer, made a small bathing suit which he named as “atome,” the French word for “atom”. When word got out, Reard, who was a Mechanical Engineer, came out with his own version and marketed it as being “smaller than the smallest bathing suit in the world.” It was Reard who came up with the name “bikini”.

The provocativeness of the bikini shocked many people in France, earning reactions that were comparable to the shock that could be felt everytime an atomic bomb exploded in the Bikini Atoll.

By 1960, the popularity of the Bikini has reached America. And the rest, as they say, is history.
