Spanish term or phrase: braga ancha
Braga ancha de encaje gris con motivos de flores.

No hits in Spanish to speak of really, but perhaps that gives me more freedom!

I'm thinking that these could be "full" or "maxi", but perhaps I am wrong. Please help! Thanks in advance. UK English please. :)

French knickers
Explanation:
I think these are French knickers, the wide kind of women's underwear. If you look on goole images, they're quite lacy too (de encaje).

Happy translating!

Paul
