French Knickers

French Knickers are a type of lingerie. The term is predominantly used in the UK to describe a type of underwear worn from the hip. They cover the hip, part of the upper thigh and part of the buttocks. They are regarded as more comfortable and sexier than thongs.


In the mid to late 1970s French Knickers, designed by Janet Reger and others, brought erotic and exotic style to lingerie. Of course major manufacturers through the 1980s to present day latched on to the trends. Now luxury lace and silk French Knickers are available in high street stores.
