If there are true differences between Americans and their French counterparts, it is this: to the French, fancy lingerie doesn't stay at the bottom of the drawer. No, to the French woman, sexy lingerie is a wardrobe staple, and taking care of that lingerie is a feminine habit that has been passed down through the generations.
And on this front, the French have it right. Studies show that wearing lingerie you feel comfortable, beautiful and sexy in shows in your confidence and outer demeanor, even if no one else ever sees it. So, in the spirit of raising our good will and self esteem in 2013, it's time to revamp our lingerie drawer and make sure that what we wear and how we wear it will make our bra burning ancestors very, very proud.
