I just started reading a Coco Chanel, An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney and without even being that far in, what I love most about her is the way she empowered women by designing the iconic, practical but flattering Chanel suit. Isn’t it funny how empowerment through lingerie is kind of opposite? Since lingerie is a luxury, and at times not very practical, it’s not filling any physical need for women… but is it filling a psychological and emotional one? I say yes. Think about it, the last time you wore a well fitting and beautiful bra and panty set under your clothes, were you not more confident and bold than usual? This little black number certainly does the trick. More on this idea soon, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
