Why We Love High Waisted Knickers

I've been getting a lot of questions lately about high waisted knickers, so I thought I'd do a little article on the subject. 

The high waisted style stated as a loose fitting over the knee pantaloon during the early 19th Century and evolved into the figure hugging foundation garment of the 1950s, becoming shorter and more fitted as the decades passed by.

Modern industrial manufacturing methods along with textile innovations are what gives us the style and features we know and love today, such as body conturing, flat felled seams and beautiful stretch lace. 

The design may have changed over the years, but the basic function remains the same; A good foundation to build upon that works with the fashion of the era. These days the high waisted knicker helps to create a smooth body contour to suit figure hugging fashion of today and offers comfort and support for the modern figure.
