A Babydoll is nightwear for women. It is short, usually six inches from the knee, loose fitting and sleeveless.

A Basque is an item of women's apparel. The term is from French origin. It refers to a type of bodice or jacket, and in modern usage a long corset, characterized by a close, contoured fit and extending past the waistline over the hipster. It's called a basque, because the fashion was adopted from Basque traditional dress, intially by the French and then throughout Western fashion.


A Bikini provides more coverage than a Thong but less than Brief.


Blanket Sleeper
A Blanket Sleeper is a type of especially warm sleeping garment. A blanket sleeper is typically, but not always a loose-fitting, one piece garment of blanket-like material, enclosing the entire body except for the head and hands.

Bloomers is a word which has been applied to several types of divided women's garments for the lower body at various times. Women's baggy underpants fastened to just below or above the knee are also known as "bloomers" (or as "knickers" or directoire knickers"). They were most popular in the 1910s and 1920s but continued to be worn by older women for several decades thereafter. Often the term "bloomers" has been used interchangeably with the pantalettes worn by women and girls in the mid 19th century and the open leg knee length drawers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
A Bodice, historically, is an article of clothing for women, covering the body from the neck to the waist. In modern usage it typically refers to a specific type of upper garment common in Europe during the 16th to the 18th century. The term bodice, comes from a pair of bodies, because the garment was originally made in two pieces that fastened together, frequently by lacing.
A Bodystocking is an article of lingerie, similar to a leotard. It is much the same as a unitard, but the term bodystocking is likely to be preferred when the type of garment is worn as an underlayer in cold weather. A bodystocking is usually a sheer close-fitting one piece garment for the torso; many variations have sleeves and legs. It is usually made from a sheer fabric similar to those used for stockings and tights, or from fishnet material. This is why bodystockings are not normally considered acceptable outerwear, and are meant to serve as novelty items of lingerie. Bodystockings also serve as an alternative to camisoles, and can be worn under a sheer blouse as a way of covering up the body without the lines of an underlayer showing through.
Boyshorts are modern lingerie attire. They offer full coverage.
A Brassiere, (commonly referred to as bra) is an undergarment that covers, supports, and elevates the breast. Since the late 19th century, the bra, has replaced the corset as the most widely accepted method for supporting breasts.
Brazilian Panty
A Brazilian Panty covers more of the back than a thong but less than a full panty. A Brazilian panty has a full crotch, but the back is cut back to follow the apex of your cheeks in a V-shape.
A Brief is a traditional rise panty with full coverage in the rear.
A Bustier (alternatively bustiere) is a form-fitting garment for women, which is traditionally worn as lingerie. A bustier's primary purpose is to push up the bust by tightening against the upper midriff and forcing the breasts up, while gently shaping the waist. Nowadays, it might also be worn as a push-up bra under a low-backed dress, or as a camisole for outer wear. The bustier can also be worn as a half-slip under diaphanous upper garments if a bold display of the midriff is not desired. A bustier resembles a basque, but is shorter. It reaches down only to the ribs or waist. Modern bustiers are often made with mesh panels rather than the traditional boning..

Advice: Make promises and keep them

The following are some suggestions for taking care of your bras so they last longer:

  • The first thing you should do is read the manufacturer labels for the ideal type of cleaning of a particular garment. Follow the instructions they provide.
  • In general we recommend that you hand wash all bras in cold water with mild soap.
  • If hand washing is difficult for you, then you may use laundry bags to place your intimates and do your laundry with a washer. Choose the delicate cycle. Use cold water and mild soap.
  • We recommend that you air dry your bras after washing  them. Do not use the dryer to dry your bras.
  • Stack your bras neatly in a drawer after they are dry.
  • Have a good selection of bras. Do not keep using the same bras over and over again. You can get better results from your bras by giving them time to re-energize. Please note that the fibres in your bras get stretched each and every time they are used. You have to give the fibres enough time to reset before their next use.
  • In general make sure you buy good quality and well made bras. In the long-term well made bras are easier to care for and will always last much longer.

Lingerie is a term for fashionable and possibly alluring undergarments. The term in the French language applies to all undergarments for either gender. In English it is applied specifically to those undergarments designed to be visually appealing or erotic.

The concept of lingerie as visually appealing undergarments was developed a long time ago during the late nineteenth century. Lady Duff-Gordon of Lucile was a pioneer in developing lingerie that freed women from more restrictive corsets. Through the first half of the 20th century, women wore underwear for three primary reasons: to alter their outward shape (first with corsets and later with girdles or bras), for hygienic reasons, or for modesty. Before the invention of crinoline, women's underwear was often very large and bulky. During the late 19th century, corsets became smaller, less bulky and constricting, and were gradually supplanted by the brassiere, first patented in the 20th century by Mary Phelps Jacob. When the First World War broke out, women found themselves filing in men's work roles, creating a demand for more practical undergarments. Manufacturers began to use lighter and more breathable fabrics. As the 20th century progressed, underwear became smaller and more form fitting, The lingerie industry expanded in the 21st century with designs that double as outerwear. The lingerie market at the turn of the 21st century was driven by the advent of modern technologies and fabrics that help in designing innovative products such as laser-cut seamless bras and moulded T-shirt bras. Designers are putting greater emphasis on rich-looking fabrics, laces, embroideries and brighter, more daring colours.
