Sexy Lingerie Lace: The semi-transparent lace sexy lingerie make many draw on them. The fit shows elegance and innuendo; an explosive mixture. St. Gallen is the capital of embroidery and lingerie, as we can see in the Textile Museum, visiting her show "Secrets." 

The great design makes women's lingerie (Victoria 's Secret, La Perla, Chantelle, Passionata, Lejaby, etc) buy their embroidery and lace in the textile companies of St. Gallen.
The history of textiles and embroidery in St. Gall, dating from a millennium. But during the last hundred years, several companies have flourished as Bischoff Textil, Forster Rohner, Union, Filtex, Rau & Co., Eisenhut & Co., Jakob Schläpfer and Embrex. They make the same embroidery and lace for the world's leading brands.
Women's lingerie in St. Gall: The exhibition "Secrets" of the Textile Museum, shows the evolution of underwear from the Victorian era, beginning with a crimson corset, 1865, which is the oldest piece in the collection, and is reinforced with whalebone. In the late Victorian era, a significant shift in the role of women, which rose from her maternal role and marked social status of the husband, the practice of sports, the concern for hygiene. During the First World War, women had to assume leadership of the families and go to work, so that the needs of clothing substantially modified.
Also among the collection, a set of trousers and shirt that belonged to the legendary Coco Chanel, in pastel shades and with his initials engraved GC (Gabrielle Chanel), which was described as androgynous style.
After the First World War garçonne style emerges, in which the woman wants to look like a guy, as opposed to the earlier position that emphasized the figure, accentuating the waist and lifting the bust. This change was not capricious, but that was due to the need for freedom of movement. This trend disappeared in the late 1930s.
As an interesting sample, is collection of locks that contain photos inside, invite the visitor to practice voyeurism. This is the "patriotic postcards" created during the First World War to boost morale of the soldiers on the front. It is a collection of erotic cards, where women's lingerie is shown as sublimation of eroticism.
In the 30s, there are two technology product fabrics, silk mousseline (adapted to the thin fabric lingerie), and rubber, the predecessor of spandex (lycra).
Arises at this point a new feminine silhouette, the figure of peanuts, which highlights the bust and shoulders, and with the hip reduced. This image was popularized by Christian Dior, Roger Piguet Swiss student in Paris. Another innovation of the times is the emergence of the female figure pictured in the catalogs, which replaced the previous drawings.
The exhibition aims to highlight the creativity and success of Swiss industries of St. Gallen. A portion of the sample, is dedicated to the textile and machinery.
