Hot, skimpy and sexy is what describes lingerie. Not a social wear, suitable in bedrooms and private areas. It is most commonly used as nightwear. Lingeries comes in various styles, coverage and patterns and since it is not expected to be worn on public, lingeries may not hide all the privates or may not have cloth on strategic places.
