I’m looking for a particular style of panty to wear with a corset. I’m attaching a photo of something similar but this is a little too “costumey” and likely can’t be worn under everyday wear. (Also, this particular panty is handmade and although gorgeous … is around $150). I’d love something full and gathered but not quite this full.
I do lots of my shopping online and was wondering is you’ve seen anything like I’m describing and if so, when I might find it; and if not, what would be a good search string for me to use when searching? What would you call them?
Thanks so much for writing. I know exactly who made the panty you’re talking about, a wonderful corsetiere and costume designer named Espalore. While I won’t be able to find you any knickers exactly like hers (they’re simply too exquisite), I did some find some similarly ruffled, satin panties for a lot less money. Most of the knickers I’m linking to are sold through a UK site, FairyGothMother; which carries an excellent selection and ships worldwide for around $15 USD.
As far as search terms, I’m not sure what the best phrase would be. I tried a few different search strings (including ruffled knicker and bustle panty), but none of them gave me the results I was looking for. Maybe posting it here it will give us a few more ideas.
Hope this helps!
