It has long been known that fashion repeats itself after a certain period of time. Not that the styles of the outfits are exactly copied, but in general they have a general similar look. This applies to both outerwear and underwear. Women's dress slips are no exception, and have undergone a lot of changes over the past few decades.
What is a combination
The combination is a kind of union of two elements, namely pantaloons and shirts. Women wear it over underwear under some kind of upper outfit, for example, under a dress or a suit with a skirt. In general, women's combinations under the dress are designed to emphasize the dignity of the figure and hide the flaws. They also help make the dress look more attractive. According to fashion experts, the combination once replaced the corset and was positively received by the ladies. She did not constrain movements and did not squeeze the ribs, as was the case with the corset.
History of occurrence
Underwear craftswomen sewed inRussia since the days of tsarism. Later, when the revolution took place, they continued to make underwear and tried to maintain quality and bright colors. However, in the 1920s, everything changed. In order to equalize everyone's rights for the fair sex, they began to produce clothes that are affordable for every Soviet woman. In stores and on the market, only a discreet combination was available, which some even managed to boil to remove stains. Only the wives of major officials had the opportunity to order beautiful silk underwear from foreign catalogs.
After the war, the Soviet Union began to gradually import women's combinations under the dress, made of natural silk. Soviet ladies at first perceived them as ordinary festive clothes and put them on to go to the cinema or to a concert.
After some time, namely in the 50s of the last century, the government introduced new standards in the production of underwear. So, a silk combination appears in the wardrobe of a Soviet woman. And after a couple of decades, they begin to produce combinations of fabrics with the addition of synthetics (for example, viscose, nylon, etc.).
As for the fashion trends of that time, under the Women's Union, in order not to flaunt the body in a transparent dress, they always wore a combination under it. Moreover, the latter had to be somewhat shorter in length than the upper dress, so that the edges would not protrude, which was considered very indecent in society.
In the 1990s, gradually women's combinations under the dressare transformed from ordinary daily items into clothes of an erotic nature.
Today, underwear on the market is represented by such a variety that combinations are no longer the only possible option. However, there are several types of such shirts that are offered for different occasions: for sleeping, at home and wearing under a dress.
The first option is usually the easiest, because for sleep, as a rule, they sew an unremarkable shirt with a minimum amount of decor. Usually such combinations are made from natural materials.
Homemade lingerie, slips in particular, can look stylish and charming. Over the past few years, women's clothing companies have paid attention to household items and decided to add a little charm to them. Now, in a light home combination, a woman can do household chores and at the same time not lose her attractiveness.
As for a special shirt for a dress, at the moment both a combination for women in large sizes and a combination for petite ladies are being produced. There is already a variety of styles that allow you to create the most unique images. Short and long, decorated with lace, various inserts of contrasting colors, combinations make every woman feel feminine and sexy.
