Exquisite, exclusive designer lingerie.

Lingerie History


Lingerie takes its influences from everything around it, animal, vegetable and mineral, always re-creating, constantly re-inventing. Take the simple bra, for example, born out of necessity, but evolving into beautiful, delicate lingerie with inspirations from our glamorous ancesters, our avant-garde fashion designers and from the most unexpected sources from around the world.

Have you ever wondered where the word ‘lingerie’ came from or who or what inspired us to call a sexy nightie a babydoll!  Or just when in history did our love affair with these glamorous undergarments begin?  

Take a look at Honeys Lingerie Boutique Blog latest page addition A “Brief “ History and let us guide you through the decades with a few nostalgic memories thrown in, do you remember Madonna’s vogue bra!
