Origin of camiknickers

  • The term was coined in the 1920s when camiknickers were introduced as a briefer garment than combinations. It is derived from camisole and knickers, effectively joining those two garments together as one. The garment re-appeared in the lingerie market in the 1990s under the name teddy or body.
