These beautiful 1940s style French Knickers are incredibly authentic, from the flowing, soft satin, to the fit and the fastening. Designed to fit tightly at the waist, before flaring out to skim the very top of the hips and draping to perfection around the wide legs; they fasten with a row of pearlised buttons on the left-hand side.
They're incredibly sexy whilst still looking rather demure to modern eyes... but you'd have scandalised the vicar if he caught a glimpse of these black satin smalls on your washing line back in the War!
Creating these French knickers has been nothing short of a labour of love. But luckily, there's nothing we love more than vintage lingerie, so we've kept going until they were perfect in every way! They're just the ticket for all you 1940s gals, as well as swing dancers who want to keep their modesty intact.
