Sophistikitten is a little online shop that specializes in gorgeous knickers from the classic designs of the 1940s and 1950s. All items are hand made to order and generally four weeks time is required to fill an order. Custom size orders are not accepted but the company does accept custom orders on fabric or colour if either can be easily sourced.
Presently Sophistikitten offers three styles of knickers including French Knickers, Silk French Knickers, and the Tie Side Silk Knickers. All three designs are luxurious bringing the wearer back to an era of elegance, romance and class. They are offered in sizes 26 through 38 and international shipping is accepted.
The French knickers are made of georgette, a delicate, translucent fabric, with six panels for best fit, side openings with shell buttons and a wide waistband that should match with one’s natural waistline. A 1940s style knicker, they are offered in both peach and eau-de-nil.
The silk French knickers are the same design as the basic knickers but instead of georgette, they are made with pure silk satin in dusky pink, black, red, rich chocolate and deep emerald green.
Lastly, the Tie Side Silk knickers are again very similar in design but use a side tie instead buttons as closures. The large sash type bow is integrated into the waistband allowing the knickers to look elegant and preventing the sash from being lost. Made from pure silk satin, the colors are dusky pink, black, red, rich chocolate and deep emerald green.
For any woman craving to wear luxurious, authentic 1940s knickers, it is probably worth the wait to have one of these masterpieces specially sewn.
