Chapter Three, The Secret Weapon, brings up a topic we find ourselves discussing in the shop regularly; your underwear can set the tone for the day. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from different French women in this Chapter:
"If your underwear isn't right, nothing else is."~ Chantal Thomass, French lingerie designer
"If I start with a good base, the I know I will dress well...If I want to seduce, I wear a certain ensemble, if I am filming and have to be comfortable, I wear another."~ Sylvie Tellier, former Miss France and TV personality
"It may not be seduction of someone else...for a French woman this can mean the seduction of herself, to feel good about herself and happy in her skin."~ Odlie Morvan, director of underwear at Galeries Lafayette
Have any of you ever experienced a time when you felt like wearing a matching set or a garter belt changed your mood and made you feel more confident? What do you think correlation is between a women's self awareness, the way she communicates with her environment, and what lies underneath her clothes?
