Both fashionable and alluring, Lingerie generally refers to women's undergarments. It derives from the French word "linge," meaning "washables." With a myriad of designs and styles, Lingerie's primary objective is to appeal to the sexuality of the wearer. Typical Lingerie may include fancy bras, panties, and even sleepwear. Certain costumes may be considered Lingerie as well. Recently, Lingerie has become more appealing to a wider audience, becoming popular intimate apparel worn by many men.
