There is something unique and special about quality French Knickers. Intimate items of lingerie, these can be considered as exclusive just by owning a pair. From their rise throughout the nineteen-fifties and sixties where naughtier styles and promotion increased their popularity, french knickers still hold a place in underwear fashion today.
Popular with those who grew up with them originally, french knickers are a very useful addition to any woman’s underwear drawer as they will rarely show up under clothing so avoiding the dreaded VPL (VisiblePantyLine).
Also it goes without saying, but we will anyway.. that french kickers are very comfortable as well as sexy. What could be better, more can be less we think!
In addition to French Knickers there are also a great selection of many other classical and new lingerie styles to choose from.
The plain and simple reason why French Knickers are so called is because of their similarity to knickerbockers which were often sported by the Parisienne dancing females famed for the Can-Can and then bought to further prominence during and after the second world war years.
For decades ever since the mid 20th century this french design of ladies stylish underwear became popular throughout the UK and remains so to this day. In fact like so many trends this lingerie fashion is enjoying a well-deserved revival as although a prevalence of sexy lingerie may have perhaps overtaken them these days, the timeless style and comfort of french knickers endures even now.
A properly cut set of original style french knickers will cover the hip, a lot of the upper thigh and most of buttocks. Fast forward to 2012 lingerie styles and you will find many variations of this understated and rated, sexy lingerie including the french thong. This thong version loosely based on the french knicker can be tiny with really just an effort at coverage on the front with a g-string style thong for the back.
Back to proper french knickers, the French have always understood that if you want to look sexy, less is not always more. Sometimes sex appeal and sensuality is increased purely because of what something does not show, but rather what it only hints at. So fear not that by wearing some really comfortable non-figure hugging french knickers you lose any sex appeal you will no doubt project even more latent sensuality.. enjoy your french knickers!
