    Ever wonder what all this Lingerie terminology means?

    The A-Z Of Lingerie

    A – Appliqué

    Appliqué is a decoration method where lace, embroidery or additional fabric are stitched or bonded onto the base fabric to create a three-dimensional effect. Often, satin or silk bras, briefs, suspender belts and negligee are decorated with appliquéd lace, creating a sumptuous, opulent look and feel.

    B – Bra

    Bras are arguably the defining and most referred to item when it comes to lingerie. The bra is designed to offer support to the breasts, and even alter the appearance of breast shape, offering uplift, rounding and much more. Bras come in many types, from seamless t-shirt styles to sensual ouvert designs.

    C – Corset

    Corsets are a historical lingerie pieces, and were designed even before the bra, to sculpt and enhance the female form. Today, corsets are used in the boudoir as a seductive look, and with enthusiasts for waist training. Quality corsets contain steel boning and are secured with lacing to create hourglass contours.

    D – Dessous

    Dessous, is French for 'worn underneath', or 'underwear' and is now a commonly used and fashionable term for fine underwear, or lingerie. Some lingerie constructed with sheer mesh and the finest of silks is described as 'dessous' to evoke a sense of luxury and delicacy.
