Silk and Satin Underwear – Making Beautiful Choices

Satin underwear is very popular. If you have not already discovered it, then it is time to trade in those tired old cotton garments and enjoy some real luxury. Satin has been in existence for many centuries; its name is used to describe what is known as a satin weave using fibres such as silk, indeed traditionally real satin was always made from silk. It was first woven in the middle ages although variations had been around since the time of the ancient Greeks. Samite was a luxurious and heavy silk material which was quite common in mediaeval Asia and satin was a version of it. Nowadays it usually has a very silky and slightly glossy appearance and is extremely sensuous to the touch. This is one of the reasons, of course, why it so popular for lingerie garments and other types of satin underwear.

Women find satin an absolute delight to wear. The feel of the lustrous fabric sliding over a woman’s body as she puts on a camisole is guaranteed to make her feel both sexy and desirable. Satin underwear oozes femininity and charm and it will cling to every curve as it flows over her body like liquid silk, accentuating her very feminine features.

Having such a soft and compliant fabric next to the skin is a very sensual experience and it is not surprising that satin lingerie is one of the most popular types available today due to its suppleness and the comfort it gives to the wearer.

Satin or silk is often a favourite fabric to use for women’s camisoles, slips and other garments as it provides a soft and silky layer between a woman’s skin and the comparative roughness of her outer clothes.

Nowadays, many women like to wear lace and silk lingerie as outerwear. The French term for this is “dessous-dessous”. Lingerie itself is also a French word used to describe clothing which is both sensual and appealing, and often erotic. Satin underwear is ideal for this as its silky feel and softness make it a very tactile material. It lends a feeling of unashamed luxury to any occasion. Women love to wear satin underwear and men love to see women wearing it. It is almost thought of as underwear to put on to take off later. Satin underwear makes an ideal present for a special occasion or just as a romantic gift, and of course if you are about to get married then silk and satin bridal underwear is a great choice. The garments are unobtrusive under wedding dresses yet will look very special on the wedding night.

Satin Underwear is not the sole preserve of women; satin underwear for men enables them to enjoy the luxury of this fabric. It helps a man to feel comfortable through the day under his business suit and also helps him to feel more exciting and sensual in the bedroom. Satin underwear for men is sophisticated and sensuous and these days, it is available in a wide range of styles which are both sexy and yet comfortable. Most manufacturers and designers have a satin collection within their range of garments as they understand the versatility of the fabric. Some silk satins require careful hand-washing and ironing while still damp but good quality silk is often machine washable. One should always be careful though, as some versions of satin can be difficult to care for, so always take care to read the garment care labels. Nowadays, satin fabrics can be made from many fibres including easy-care polyester which can be washed on low temperatures. Whichever you choose, whether it is for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, you will both certainly get much enjoyment from it.
