Lingerie: Why Do They Call Them French Knickers?
Why do they call them French Knickers?
French knickers are very popular in England. They are loose and comfortable around the thighs, with no elasticated leg cuffs and they feel sexy too. They are best worn with skirts and free flowing dresses.
The term French knickers come from the fact that they look similar to the underwear worn in Parisienne dancing, called the Can-Can. This dance originated in Paris around 1830 and became regularly performed in the Moulin Rouge. The word can-can is French and means “scandal”. It has always been thought of as a very sexy dance routine.
Advantages of wearing French Knickers
a) Very comfortable – quite the opposite of a thong, that could get stuck in your bum.
b) Air could get to your nether regions.
c) Smooth appearance under clothes. There is no VPL – Visible Panty Liner.
I was wondering what the French call Englands’ Knickers…
Could it be, Le Knickers Anglais?
