Eleanor Almond French Knickers


Beautifully soft cream silk satin floats over the body in these vintage inspired French knickers, or tap pants if you prefer! Three silk covered buttons with loop fastening and delicate binding at the waist show careful attention to detail, adorned with side panels of sheer eyelash lace in ivory.

Designed to be worn on the natural waist and flow over the hips, wear them with the matching Eleanor Almond bra and robe for indulgent lounging, or beneath a full skirt or dress for channelling 1940's glamour on an evening out.

The cream and ivory shades also make them perfect to wear as bridal French knickers beneath your gown, whilst still being an elegant neutral to enjoy long after the big day.

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.

At last! A great design & fit.

I have been searching for proper vintage style french knickers in silk. At last they are found. Great fit ( I am 10/12 and chose M) they are not too close and are very comfortable. Lovely details of lace and side buttons. A real treat, will make you feel a million dollars. Quick delivery.
Thank you

The perfect bridal lingerie!

These gorgeous French knickers were just the thing for the morning of my wedding. They're beautifully-constructed, and the almond colour is just right (especially with that exquisite French lace!) Highly recommended to make you feel like an absolute queen!


Eleanor Almond French Knicker

Perfect knickers

There's not much better than lounging around on a Sunday morning...the only thing better is when you're doing it in H&F French knickers! They are comfortable, fit well and look great on.
