Eleanor Lilac French Knickers

Regular price £100.00
Regular price £144.00 Sale price £100.00

Channel old-time glamour with beautifully draping silk French knickers, expertly crafted from luxuriously soft lilac 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 binding at the waist ensuring the classic look is maintained.

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

Heidi S.
In Love

I recently made my first purchase at Harlow and Fox in the Eleanor Lilac French Knickers and I’m absolutely in love with them. They fit perfectly. They are so luxurious and feminine. I had wanted to purchase a matching bra but alas I’m too small. The customer service at Harlow and Fox is wonderful and Elizabeth was very helpful and encouraging that we could work together to find a perfect fit and match. I ultimately decided to first see if the French knickers fit before going for a matching set. Seeing others reviews where customers who also were sized out of the bras were able to collaborate to get a perfect fit and match, I have confidence that when I order again (and I most assuredly will as I need the all the colors) I too can come up with a perfect solution.

Ahh this is so lovely to hear Heidi, thank you so much! Look forward to coming up with the perfect sized set for you very soon, and enjoy your French knickers for now!

Marijana S.
Eleanor Lilac French Knickers

This is my first pair of Harlow and Fox's French knickers, and I'm absolutely in love with them. The fit it perfect (I followed the size chart), the silk feels amazing against the skin, and the lace inserts on the sides make them look feminine and delicate. The craftsmanship is immaculate, just like my other Harlow and Fox pieces. I really love the little silk-covered buttons on the side; it is such a small detail, but speaks volumes about the intricacies of the design and how even the smallest elements are well thought out. Harlow and Fox have the best customer service I have encountered, not just in the lingerie community, but in general. Elizabeth has been so kind and helpful and has patiently answered all my questions. I am already in the process of placing another order...or two.

So happy to hear this Marijana, it is always a priority to make sure we help however we can! The buttons are my favourite detail too, sometimes it's just those little things that bring so much delight! Look forward to seeing what you choose next.

One of my favorites

The silk is so smooth and the fit is perfect. Definitely one of the of my favorite pieces. I look forward to adding to my Harlow & Fox collection. It's my favorite brand of lingerie.

That is the very best compliment to hear! Thank you so much, and hope you love lots of swishing about in these.
