When it comes to effortless, yet sexy, style, French fashion is unparalleled. It only makes sense that underwear in a “French cut” – cuts that land high on the hip – exudes the same vibe.
Much more than a trend, the French cut has been around for decades. It hit an all-time high in the 1980s when showing off lots of leg was all the rage. Nowadays, that same style gets a modern upgrade with new brands, cuts, fabrics, and designs.
So step into “high” fashion with these classic French cut lingerie styles. They prove that high-waisted isn’t always a synonym for the granny panty.
