Can You Be A Feminist And Sill Wear Sexy Lingerie?

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

This is the 21st Century, after much struggling and brow beating woman achieved liberation; gone are the days where we have to hide our bodies and minds, yet many women still cower when it comes to sexy lingerie designed to raise blood pressures. Why is it that even the most independent modern woman can still be crippled with self-consciousness and dislike parts of her body? Or is the problem related to the fact that sexy lingerie is seen as an indulgence for the men's eye?

Sexy Lingerie - Can You Wear It For Your Own Pleasure?

Wearing sexy lingerie doesn't make us anti-feminists or any less of an independent woman. Sexy lingerie it is a multi-million pound industry and, girls, now is the time to jump on the band wagon if you haven't already! Sexy lingerie is not about the man who gets to see it. It's about how it makes us women feel, it's a piece of clothing that can make us feel confident and sexy. You don't even need to have a man, sexy lingerie isn't always about having someone to show it off to, and you should only ever wear clothing that makes you feel good!

Bra Burning - What Does It Even Mean?

Some may say its anti-feminist, however lingerie has been a tool used by the feminist movement as far back as the 1800's, from corset burnings in 1874 to the Bra burnings in the 1960's and 70's. The fact is women were not burning bras and corsets because they didn't believe that women should indulge in sexy lingerie. The bras were used as a symbol. The very purpose of bras and corsets were to be restrictive, structured and supportive this was why they were used as a symbol of the restrictions for women in society. In fact the feminist movement in the late 1800's and early 1900's promoted the idea of the bra over the corset as they believed it was more suitable for women's advancing role in society.

Wear Lingerie Because You Feel Like It!

So even if you purchased a sexy chemise, babydoll or teddy to show off to your partner, are you pandering to a male's whim or your own? No longer do we wear lingerie to pander to society's preferred female shape, like women suffered for hundreds of years. We can wear whatever type of lingerie we want whether that is a teddy, corset, chemise, or baby doll. The shape and look that you go for is entirely your own choice.

So just because you are strutting your stuff in a delectable piece of lingerie does not make you anti-feminist even if you are wearing it for your partners enjoyment. The stereotype of a feminist is not a common reality!
