There was a time not so long ago when bigger pants were considered deeply unfashionable, their sole purpose being in holding one in place a la Bridget Jones or catering to the needs of those who considered comfort over style.
However, there has been a real shift in attitude. Women have now discovered the joy of the so-called ‘granny knickers’ in offering it’s wearer a flattering, stylish, alternative to the ubiquitous thong. Think Lady Ga Ga, Scarlet Johannsen (Lost in Translation) and all manner of lovelies who have woken up to the understated appeal of the bigger pant. We could go even go further in saying that the big knicker sums up the current mood within fashion towards a more restrained, minimalist chic.
Naturally there are degrees of big. For those just dipping their feet in the water so to speak, why not try Mimi Holliday’s divine Amoureuse Boyshort, with detachable suspender straps, a gorgeous vintage inspired piece, teamed with the equally gorgeous Amoreuse bra, due to hit our site mid September.
For those that who want to fully embrace the big knickers they don’t come more spectacular or unashamedly ‘big’ than Fleur of England’s Something Blue Knickers. Silk Satin panels interwoven with Austrian Lace make this a supremely beautiful yet wearable piece, the sugary blue perfect also for any blushing brides.
Fox & Rose is loving the look!
