The godress has a fascinating history and is now being transformed by technology. High-performance underwear claims to do anything from filtering flatulence to soothing vibration.
The first type of underwear is a loincloth worn by ancient Egyptians.
Known as schenti, it is made of woven material, usually cotton and linen, fixed with a belt.
The lower classes and slaves are almost naked, so technically, the loincloth is often a “coat.” However, the Egyptian art in Queens Valley from 1189 BC to 1077 BC showed the pharaoh wearing a transparent coat, making the belt a panty.
In Europe, in the Middle Ages (500-1500 AD), underwear included shirts made of fine linen or cotton by men and women. In the 15th and 16th centuries, when a male’s leg was bifurcated (in two parts), one form of panties returned.
In order to provide extra protection to the male genitalia, a padded squid was added. The cod fillet is also a symbol of sexual energy, designed to strengthen rather than hide the genital area.
In the early to mid-19th century, both men and women wore forked drawers – a loose knee trousers hung from the waist. This simple panty style makes it easier to manage, especially if you wear several layers of petticoat or breeches.
The closed panties of women (pantalettes) appeared in the mid to late 19th century.
In 1882, the dress reformer Gustave Jaeger believed that wearing natural wool fibers next to the skin would allow the skin to breathe and help dispel the body’s poison. He also believes that the elastic quality of knitwear is more likely to promote sports.
Also in the 19th century, the popularity of men’s long-leg pants led to changes in men’s underwear, and the hose (Long John) extended to the ankle. These are made of silk for affluence and flannel, or later wool, for the public.
For women in the early 20th century, wearing clothes involved multiple layers of underwear, including petticoats and drawers, followed by a tight corset.
During the First World War, more women were physically working in factories, mines and farms, and therefore needed practical clothing. The contours of the jacket, such as loose pants and sleeves, paved the way for women to wear shorts that began in around 1916. Beginning in the 1920s, corsets were gradually replaced by less restrictive elastic versions, such as belts and “walk-in” that gradually replaced corsets.
Latex is a rubber yarn that was introduced in 1930 and allows elastic underwear to become more fit. These eventually evolved into a style similar to the panties worn today. In 1938, after the invention of synthetic nylon, lightweight and easy-to-wash underwear began to appear.
Shorter, crotch length panties or male pants appeared after 1945. In 1959, a new type of artificial elastic fiber called Lycra was invented. Combined with cotton or nylon, it is strong, stretchable and well restored. The result is that men and women are more concerned with the underwear of the body.
In the more relaxed 1960s, underwear became more succinct, and Y-front was largely eliminated by men’s underwear. In the 1970s, the underwear was almost seamless. (I think thongs or thongs are hard to define as panties – its main popularity seems to be that it provides the wearer with an invisible line of pants.)
