"Odette" Tap Shorts

All my designs are like my children, and although I'm "supposed" to love them all equally, Odette challenges that notion because I definitely play favorites with her. She's easily the star of the show in this first Samsara collection set, inspired by her underwear ancestors as far back as the Victorian era and then made very popular during the 20s-30s. Her 100% silk charmeuse body drapes beautifully from your waist down to her flirty hem. She has an elastic waist and adjustable satin elastic straps on her sides that make for a perfect, comfortable fit. Her V-shaped side seam cut outs give you an additional sense of coquettishness, especially when worn over her sister Yasmeen. One of her most distinctive details is the silver o-ring in the center front, that is used to connect to the adjustable stability strap that also hooks to the center front of the Rosaline bra, giving you a unique 1920's inspired undergarment look that also helps keep your skivvies in place throughout the day. Although clearly she's a beautiful piece of loungewear, she is an excellent choice of underwear worn underneath fuller skirts and dresses.

The name Odette is of French and Old German origin, meaning "wealthy, rich" which is how you'll feel treating yourself to this piece of luxurious lingerie. The name is also famously associated with the tragic princess from my favorite ballet, Swan Lake.
