My love affair with lace lingerie began the very first moment lace caressed my hips. The idea for writing this particular post came from the fact that today is national lace day! Lingerie comes in several cuts, types, materials, and colors. Today, I decided to write one about lace.
The word lace originated from the Latin word for entice or ensnare. Literally, it’s referring to a noose, but that sounds a lot less fun. The oldest lace came from cleverly embroidered threads used to decorate clothing or linen. But we all know what we like to decorate with lace!
While lingerie originated from Ancient Egypt (like 3000BC), using sexy materials like lace only just began in the late 18th century in France!
Lace appeals to both men and women for different reasons. For men, it’s aesthetically pleasing to see their partner adorned in the nearly sheer material. For us that enjoy wearing it, well we know how sexy the elegant strands feel against our most sensitive skin!
If you have any comments or questions, I’d love to hear from you!
I grew up in Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua, México, where people either owned cattle ranches or fruit orchards. Much of my work ethic came from working on Rancho La Mesa (my family’s ranch). That ranch also sparked what grew into my wild imagination. I read somewhere that you should write the story you want to read, and that stuck with me. My writing began in sixth grade, around the time I began learning to type.
