A to Z of Lingerie: G is for Guipure

More women should have the confidence
to do this!
Here's another one of those French words. Do you see a theme emerging here? Guipure is a type of lace but it's a heavy lace. When I think of guipure I don't necessarily think of lingerie although it is indeed used in camisoles and nightwear.
The only guipure I own is a camisole which I actually wear as outwear. I team it with a plain white cotton camisole underneath and wear it with jeans or shorts. I think the garment was supposed to be a sexy nighty but it's too pretty to stay hidden. Perhaps I should do a post on wearing lingerie as outerwear?
