Ask the Addict: Where to Find Plain, Black, High-Waisted Knickers?

Via: Vintage Stockings Archive

Today’s Ask the Addict features comes from one of our Tumblr followers, who writes:

Might you know where to get plain, black high waisted knickers? Or even all-lace ones. I only seem to be able to find the lace panelled ones or mesh kind. Thank you!

Great question! For plain, black, high waist knickers that you can’t see through and that don’t have mesh panels, I recommend Rago and Hopeless Lingerie. Rago makes an all-satin as well as an all-lace knicker, and Hopeless handmakes a super soft bamboo jersey one. All three are shown below; just click the photo to visit the site. Hope this helps!

Rago High Waist Satin Brief – $15.00

Rago High Waist Lace Powernet Brief – $22.75

Hopeless Lingerie Jersey Knickers- $45.00

    I just bought some black lace high-waisted knickers at American Apparel yesterday!

    Despite the possible, and certainly unjustifiable, stigma you should try some very affordable (and reliable!) pieces at Macy’s. Here are my top three choices, all come in black:

    Olga $10.50, 3 for $19 Note: may run a little too big to some, choose a size down.

    Bali $10.50, 3 for $19

    Vanity Fair $8.50, 3 for $19
