French Knickers | The Modern Classic
I’ve always been massively nit picky about my clothes and whilst I’m not as bad as I were as a kid, I’m still super fussy about what I wear on my butt. So much so, I would say knickers are probably one of my biggest bug bears. Fabric cut to a marginal slither that insists on riding up into the unknown giving an irritating wedgie. Everyday knickers must be comfy and forgettable, I hate to say it so bluntly.
So all my knicker thinking culminated recently to the point I decided I would give French knickers a go. I admit, I’m kinda surprised myself I’m taking on such a project, since French knickers – or ‘tap pants’ – are the most girly whirly pants ever created, and the polar opposite to your typical cotton and-a-bit-of-elastic brief.
Taking on my new homework with a fierce determination I was surprised by how difficult it is to actually find a pair of French knickers. It transpired that this isn’t your usual underpant of choice and it required a little delving to come up with the goods. And good they are! I found a variety of styles to suit most tastes, from the biggest names, luxury labels and ‘made with love’ artisans.
Gossard ‘Flower Rush’ French Knicker
This is the knicker I’m wearing in the photo above, which the peeps at Gossard kindly sent me. These are super slinky with the freshest floral print trimmed with deep lace at the hem. Comfy knickers I’d even wear for bed!
A vintage polka dot design with a cute frilly waistband. Absolutely adorable!
A more refined knicker, these are super stylish with ample coverage on the tummy. The soft barely pink accented with black binding and a bow give this an effortlessly chic look.
Silky satin and delicate lace combines with hot, juicy pink for a youthful and on trend look. I adore the vibrancy of the colour.
