All you big knicker fans out there rejoice! It’s out with thongs and a huge in for big knickers! After the rep Bridget Jones gave big pants, no one wanted to shout about the knickers that we all judged yet secretly owned. But now it seems the nation is on their side!
In the nineties, thongs rose to popularity due to the demand of hipster jeans and of course thanks to Sisqós very catchy tune Thong Song. Well we’re sorry to say Sisqó, but no one wants to let them see their thong any more. Big knicker sales are on the rise and not just in the UK – US retailers have seen a soar in their sales for larger knickers.
Who’s to say however that bigger knickers have to be horrid and unflattering? We have a range of high waisted knickers to briefs to Brazilians that showcase that a big knicker doesn’t have to mean unattractive.
Take the Curvy Kate Smoothie for example – not only is it in a gorgeous animal print, but it helps to shape too! (Also available in black and in a short style)
Curvy Kate Smoothie Shaper Brief Wild Blush Available in a size 8 – 22
The Curvy Kate Scarlet High Brief in black has a similar vibe in a luxurious satin fabric topped off with a cute star pedant.
Curvy Kate Scarlet High Brief Black Available in sizes 8 – 22
To add a dash of colour, the Pour Moi Imogen Rose Emb Brief is perfect for any occasion and the plum shade is so gorgeous and autumnal.
Pour Moi Imogen Rose Emb Brief Plum Available in sizes 8 – 18
It could be thanks to retro styling that is bang on trend right now or purely because we want comfort as well as style. For whatever reason it may be, big pants are here to stay! This isn’t to say people aren’t still buying thongs – I’m a thong girl through and through but after seeing this I’m definitely more open to trying some big knickers out for size.
