Lingerie of the Week: Curve Couture Corsetry Black Lace French Keyhole Knickers


One of the really awesome things about the lingerie industry today is the comparatively low barrier to entry. While you can go the traditional route with investors and factories and tradeshows, a designer can literally start their own line out of their basement using websites like Etsy and Big Cartel to open a storefront and make sales.

I first found out about Chrissie Nicholson-Wild, the designer behind Curve Couture, through her blog, also named Curve Couture. I followed the link to her shop, saw these knickers, and the rest... well, you know the saying.


I've been enamored of French knickers lately, and my adoration of all things black, lacey, and sheer is very well known. I love these. I love the material. I love the cut. I love the idea of lounging around the house in French lace knickers, a flowing peignoir, a silk headscarf, and marabou feather mules. No, these pants aren't "practical," but they sure are pretty. And since when has TLA made practicality its mission anyway? No reason to start now.

    If lacy French Knickers are making a comeback, can lacy Directoire Knickers be far behind? The latest in sheer nylon and a palette of colors would make some women and men go wild.

  2. I love how, like me with my jewelry design, anyone can become an entrepreneur with the drive and a little internet access :) After all those are how dreams start out!

    These are gorgeous!

    You know you’ve been spending too much time in fabric stores when you look at those and think-“I know that lace, I made a robe out of it!”
    But seriously, those are lovely and I too have been feeling the french knickers lately.
