Ouvert is a French word for 'open' and in the lingerie world, it's the descriptor used for panties that feature a revealed back. I tend to like more fabric (longline, high waist bottoms) rather than less so this trend has never appealed to me. And truthfully, when I saw the Claudette Ouvert line at Curve, I wasn't into it - I'm not a snake skin fan either. Since then, I've come around because no matter my personal preferences, the Ouvert set is a truly unique design for full busted women. The "bottom cup" shape is meant to provide 55% of overall coverage so the nipples are contained, but barely. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that this straightforward and unabashed sexual feature has ever been available to full bust women before. Three cheers for Claudette.
There's a photograph of the eponymous panty after the break (Sacrè bleu, the buttons are all functional!):
