What kind of knickers should be worn with a garter belt?

I absolutely love the authentic pin up girl look with fully fashioned stockings and garter belt and I’d love to re-create that look.

I remember hearing in a talk show that garter belts are not supposed to be worn with thongs, at least authentically.  It makes sense since thongs are a relatively recent invention.

But what kind of panty would one wear?  Or, should I say the British way, what kind of knickers? I would appreciate if someone can send me some ideas.

I am also trying to understand if in the vintage image below garter belt straps are attached to the panty or if the panty is being worn over the belt.  Ideas?

I would really like to do a photoshoot dressed in the most authentic way possible.

    The black garter belt straps would suggest a black garter belt worn underneath the panty. Apparently this is the proper way to wear the two items. The panty is often seen under the garter belt in product shots because this allows both to be seen to their fullest effect. However, for practical purposes, panty on top would seem to work best.
