Panties are how I stay in touch with my femme side in male mode. And in girl mode. And all the time. When I started to purchase my own clothes, panties were the first thing I bought. I would go shopping, then purge, and then build my wardrobe once more. I would always start with panties. Like bras, I have always been drawn to the sheer variety and options. Push up, halter, racerback, strapless…you can find a bra for any occasion or mood. Panties are even more so. Thong, tanga, boyshort, bikini, hipsters, g-strings, seamless, french cut…and let’s not forget the fabric. Silk, satin, cotton, leather, mesh…
And the adornments. Nothing wins me over like a small bow or rose on the front of a pair of cute panties. Lacey edging, mesh inserts….simply put, panties are cuter and more interesting than the boy equivalent to look at. And wear.
The heartbreaking moment comes when you find a perfect pair only to have them not fit right. Sizing is one thing, but perhaps the elastic in the waistband is not of high quality, or there’s not enough stretch, or the gusset is not quite wide enough and…well, we fall out. You know what I mean.
Crossdressing is very much hit or miss. It’s learning by doing. You learn which stores sell panties in your size. Not every cut or style is right for every body’s anatomy. Like most clothes, you get what you pay for in terms of quality.
It’s a little easier to eyeball a cute pair of undies in the store to see if the will ft you. Of course, this can be a little awkward if there are other shoppers in the vicinity. Shopping online is easier but that is not without risks either.
My clothes for the day, in either gender, determine what lingerie I will wear. My strapless bra was necessarily for these photos because of the mesh and the cut of the dress itself. I did not want shoulder straps showing. Straps would look a little silly next to the seams in the dress in the top picture.
Panties are the same thing. I don’t think I am alone when it comes to choosing what I will wear based on the day ahead. If I am wearing a tight dress, I’ll wear a thong. If I have a day full of difficult meetings, I’ll pick out something cute and pink to wear under my male clothes.
At any rate, that’s the joy. I have tons of panties for any mood, outfit, or occasion. But I am always looking for more.
“Panties for men” is one of the most common search terms people use to find my website. I think this is used for two reasons. First, finding a designer that makes lingerie for men makes it a little easier for someone to get started on building their wardrobe. If someone is nervous dipping their toe in this world, it’s easier when there is a company out there that makes lingerie for men. They’re not girl panties, they are panties made for men. They are made for me.
Secondly, as most of us know, not all clothes are made for every body. Searching for panties for men is an effort to find cute undies that fit a certain body type or can accommodate certain anatomical… characteristics. Lingerie is no exception.
I tend to be skeptical when it comes to ‘lingerie for men’. For the most part, I think lingerie for men misses the point. I don’t want panties that are designed for men. These tend to be no different than boring boy undies but with the addition of a little lace around the waistband, but if you remove the lace they are just briefs.
Some panties for men are cut differently. Most are. Sometimes the leg holes are a little bigger but this can make the panties a little looser and baggier. Yeah, not too sexy. Sometimes the front has a little more fabric for, well, you know.
So, what do I look for in a panty? They have to be cute. There needs to be a variety of color, fabric, and style. I love a cute pattern, I love a cute bow on the back. Of course they must fit. Always. They need to move with me. You know what I mean. I want a panty that is comfortable. It should have a little stretch but not so much that they feel loose. I want a panty with a nice, smooth front.
So, basically a panty that needs to be designed by NASA. In a fabulous way.
I am thrilled to say that HommeMystere has nailed it. When I opened my package from them I was immediately impressed with, well, to be honest, how cute the panties were. The four pairs they sent were all different from each other so there was a lot of variety in style, color, and fabric.
My favorite pair is easily the Anneve Panty. I love the mesh side panels with the delicate pink flower pattern. But the standout is the four garters (which are removable). The garters have metal hooks and do not easily become loose. I never had to worry about my stockings pulling the garters off the panty itself. The garters hold stockings up really nicely and did not unfasten on their own. The back has a seam up the middle to create a flattering shape as well.
I also loved the Violet Panty which also has a matching bra. I love a panty with different fabrics and this pair has a lovely purple fabric with black lace. The lace is adorned with a subtle, silver highlight that catches the light in a playful way. A cute black bow finishes the look.
The Krystal Panty also has a matching bra, and is made out of a really sexy, sheer fabric. Mesh can be itchy at times but I found this pair to be comfortable and wore it all day. It has a lacy edge at the front and a really cute floral pattern as well.
Finally, there is the the Natasha Panty. It is cut a little differently than the other panties here and is a little snugger than the others. My favorite detail is the lacy edging around the leg openings in the back. I love the fabric and the pattern, but the overlay of a second fabric on the sides of the front is just super cute and unique. The satin bow on the front is the perfect cherry on top for these cute panties.
The panties fit well. In every sense. There is just enough stretch for everything to fit but the stretch is not limited to just the front of the panties. It’s an all over stretch that feels comfortable and creates a very flattering and smooth look.
Finally, for those of us who have worn “panties for men” before, I can honestly say that these panties feel and fit like girls panties in every way.
I think you know what I mean. 😉
Thank you to HommeMystere for providing these perfect panties.
