I had always been fascinated by lingerie. Growing up I knew everyone had to wear underwear, but I was mesmerized by how beautiful it could be. I was in love with the different styles, the different fabrics, and how… elaborate it could be. Matching bras and panties? Perhaps pairing it with a garter belt and stockings? Lingerie was your secret. What you wore was for you.
This fascination never went away. When I first started buying my own clothes, panties were the first thing I purchased. Underdressing helps me stay connected to the beautiful side of me when I am in male mode.
Wearing lingerie isn’t always easy, though. It is very much designed for someone with different… ah, anatomy than I have. Sometimes it fits like a dream, sometimes it’s tighter or looser on me than I would like.
There are companies that specifically design and make lingerie for people who have the body shape and body parts that I do. Again, this can be very hit or miss. Not only can the quality be inconsistent, but the fit just isn’t quite right.
If I am wearing panties designed for men, it just… misses the point, I think, in a way I can’t quite put my finger on. I think it’s because some panties feel like they simply made men’s underwear and dyed in pink or sewed a tiny rose onto the front. They don’t… feel like panties. Take the rose off and they are simply pink briefs. Sometimes there is a added… pouch, I guess, sewn into them to accommodate my “feminine flaw” that just looks awkward and too much like boy underwear.
Bras for men can be disappointing, too. I know that they are not meant to be practical and I have nothing that needs support, but the bras just… look too flimsy and boring. This is a personal opinion and not meant to be a slight on any company at all. I am thankful that there are so many options these days for those of us looking for lingerie. I have gorgeous lingerie from many companies that I love to wear that helps me feel beautiful.
That being said, I am always looking for new companies that understand how to make bras and panties (and everything else!) for people with bodies like mine. Google ‘lingerie for men’ and you will be provided with an array of options that fifteen year old me would have never dreamed possible. I wear panties from some of these designers, but I mostly wear “girl panties”.
Until now. I have been aware of HommeMystere for some time and I was always impressed by their selection and variety of panties and bras. I have always wanted to add their lingerie into my wardrobe and thanks to their generosity, I have some new beautiful items to wear.
Over the next week or so I will be reviewing the items they sent. Sorry, no photo shoot 😉 but I am excited to share with you my thoughts and impressions!
