The Language of Lingerie

If you are confused by the different names given to under garments then you are not alone! The naming of lingerie is not an exact science and in modern times it is driven by the manufacturers whose first aim is not accuracy of description. Sorry lingerie manufacturers but that is the truth, here at Ever-so-Sexy we see it all the time. New garment details arrive in with our buyer and she can be heard muttering... "that is not a xxxx what are they talking about!" So we are starting a section in our blog which we hope will throw a little understanding and some background information into this confused subject.
