Eleanor Damson French Knickers


Silk tap pants will never go out of style, and ours combine the very best in classic vintage styling with modern comfort, to bring an indulgent dose of old time glamour to your lingerie drawer.

Rich burgundy silk skims gracefully over the body, with finely stitched binding at the waist adding a luxurious edge, leading to silk covered loop and button fastening.

The hint of stretch in the silk allows for contemporary comfort, whilst maintaining the elegance of a vintage aesthetic, with side inserts of contrasting black Leavers lace adding that exquisite finishing touch.

Wear them with the co-ordinating Eleanor Damson bra and dressing gown for indulgent lounging, or beneath a full skirt or dress for old time glamour on an evening out.

    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.

    The most exquisite French knickers!

    I love these French knickers, they’re so versatile! This is my second pair, I never thought I would wear them as frequently as I do. I really enjoy wearing them as lounging, but I also wear them regularly under skirts and dresses. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe.
