Eleanor Hazel French Knickers

£50.00 £100.00

The epitome of old-time glamour, the Eleanor Hazel French knickers, or tap pants if you prefer, are expertly crafted from luxuriously soft silk satin, flowing over the curves of the body and sitting on the natural waist for a true vintage silhouette.

The addition of a touch of stretch to the silk allows for the comfort of modern wear, with delicate silk binding at the waist ensuring the classic look is maintained.

Fastened with three silk covered buttons and loops at the waist, these French knickers are perfect as a standalone piece, worn beneath a full dress for swing dancing, or paired with the matching DD+ bra.

Silk French knickers / tap pants with lace, with vintage style high waist and silk covered button fastening.

Available in sizes XS-XL, designed to be worn on the natural waist.

The hint of elastane in the silk adds a slight stretch to the fit, but the nature of the design with button fastening allows for less adjustability than our elasticated garments. Please size up if you prefer a looser fit at the waist.

For an in-depth guide to fit, alongside body measurement charts, please see our Fitting Guide.

These are so luxrious and silky smooth, and I love the design. I think I will be wearing these with my dresses from here on out.


These are absolutely beautiful, the cut is perfect for my small waist/large hip ratio and the material is more superior to other more expensive underwear I’ve bought! I’m absolutely converted to these for under dresses!

Thank you so much Roisin! They are perfect for summer swishiness under dresses. Hope you enjoy!

As beautiful as I had expected

I've been a long time admirer of Harlow & Fox, but this is my first time purchasing something from the brand. I have to say, my expectations were really high after looking at their social media for years — and this piece was just as stunning, soft, and luxurious as I had expected. Even my partner (who likes all my lingerie but isn't particularly passionate about the details) was really impressed with the packing details and how the knickers looked on. I definitely look forward to purchasing something else from the brand in the future.

So lovely to hear Claire, thank you very much! Glad you've been following along on social media too, and look forward to you adding to your collection soon.

Wife adores them

Not cheap but my wife insists worth every penny. Very luxurious and makes her feel special (she tells me). She's happy so I'm happy.
