Tap Pants : According to Wikipedia, "Tap pants are a form of lingerie worn mostly by women. They are also known by the names of French knickers, side-cut shorts, and dance shorts. As the name implies, they are a type of shorts, in that they cover the pelvic area and the upper part of the upper legs.  Tap pants look much like track shorts, allow freedom of movement, and can be worn as an outer garment over other types of underwear (e.g., g-strings).  However, most wearers may wear them as innerwear or leisurewear with nothing underneath.  From a distance, one could mistakenly identify tap pants as a half slip."  Tap pants are loose short that graze the body as you move.   They are often manufactured from very delicate, feminine fabrics like lace and silk.  They go well under a skirt or dress.
