Knickers

What’s this? Are we seeking more rather random hits on this blog by displaying lady’s knickers? The answer to that is an emphatic ‘no’.  The knickers in question are on display on a clothes airer in our kitchen (that’s subject to change for we get different clothes out each year) and thus they have absolutely no contents.

This pair of knickers dates from around 1950 and they are made of artificial silk. This fibre name covered quite a multitude of actual substances. It could mean rayon, made from wood pulp or something wholly synthetic – even just plain nylon. We do not believe these knickers are nylon.

They certainly look to be capacious and roomy – certainly not at all figure hugging. The lady who wore this item of clothing would now be about 90 so maybe such knickers will bring back memories for older readers of this blog.

And apologies if you arrived here hoping for something a bit salacious. That just isn’t going to happen.
