I checked the Fashion dictionary and found several references to these things:
Underpants worn by men from 16th through 19th century, first in linen, footed, or with stirrup straps under the instep; later, any pants drawn on and called trousers.
Underpants worn by women in early 18th century consisting of two seperate legs joined by waistband and, at the end of the 19thc, knitted or woven, trimmed with lace.
pantalettes, women's and girls' underpants with long straight legs to or below the knee, ending in ruffles, tucks or embroidery, usually shown below the dress for girls and worn from late Regency to 1865.
