Love-in-Idleness knickers

£ 52 GBP

This embroidered lingerie is a tribute to the mythological properties of the Love-in-Idleness flower, so famously referenced by Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We can't guarantee that this rumored love potion will work - but maybe it's worth a try!

A darling combination of embroidered mesh and silk satin, the sweet lilac tones of these knickers will certainly indulge you. They have a silk gusset that's also lined in silk satin for the ultimate luxury feeling, and they also feature soft plush elastics that won't dig in.

Hand wash gently and lay flat to dry. Made in the UK. Models wear size S and XS respectively.
