This style of underwear sits high on the torso, resting just above the bellybutton at the natural waist and offers full coverage.
Black picot elastic is used to line the waist and leg of the garment.
The lace, and ribknit silk in both black and creme, are dead-stock fabrics. This means it is fabric left over from mills and garment factories (pre-consumer waste). Each piece is sewn in Chicago, and made to order.
