Looking for memories

Today I feel nostalgia. Nostalgia for a time I did not live. The lingerie boutique Janina (Rosellón, 233. Barcelona) has invited me to travel back in time with an exhibition of corsets, slips and bras of the 50s, 60s and 70s that the owner of the firm (also named Janina) has rescued from the closet of her grandmother and mother, the last owners of this company of intimate apparel and swimwear.

We´ve lost a lot of glamour! because now we prefer comfort. It has been worthwhile? Not for me. The real elegance of dress is measured always door inward, and often not links with comfort. Aesthetics is not a matter of opinion.

If I could, I would go a few decades back, when the woman marked waist and showed off her upturned bottom.
