As a woman, I write a great deal about men who wear lingerie. It has become a passion of mine over the past few years.
When you talk to men who love wearing lingerie, one brand comes up time and time again: Vanity Fair. Vanity Fair is not one of the showiest brands, nor is it the most feminine from an aesthetic standpoint. It is, however, undeniably one of the most comfortable and soft brands with designs that lend themselves well to being worn by men.
What is it that makes Vanity Fair so wonderful? Well, first off, there is the abundance of high-cut styles which, on a woman, extend all the way to the belly button. This means that male wearers have plenty of room to spare inside these panties, unlike other styles which may leave things a bit cramped.
Ravissant Tailored Nylon Brief
Though this may look like a pair of granny panties, you can trust the wisdom of Vanity Fair: These will fit very well. These 100% nylon panties come with a 100% cotton gusset which can always be removed if you're not in need of a gusset. Described as premium panties with a tailored fit, this is top-of-the-line Vanity Fair.
Body Caress Hi-Cut
Not only is there a slight metallic sheen to these panties, but they also come in pink, which makes them the rock and roll rebels of the Vanity Fair line. In their aforementioned wisdom, Vanity Fair has seen fit to restrict this much color excitement to sizes 6 to 9. Wouldn't want any size 12s to be able to wear pink nylon, would we?
Perfectly Yours Cool Comfort Brief
This doesn't work so well on a woman, but just look at the space above the gusset! That's perfect for the male wearer. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Vanity Fair designed these panties with male wearers in mind, and yes, you can get them in beige! Hallelujah!
Fits You Perfectly
These panties are tighter, but they also come with a semblance of trim around the top of the panties. Don't get too excited though, it's not lace, or even attempting to be lace, it's just some kind of old wallpaper pattern appropriated to satisfy a whiny designer in the back row.
Downsides of Vanity Fair
White and beige seem to be the order of the day when it comes to Vanity Fair. Occasionally they'll slip in something with a bit of a metallic sheen to it, and I believe you can purchase at least one pair of Vanity Fair panties with a trace of pink in them, but other than that you're stuck with black, white, or beige.
Vanity Fair also doesn't spend much time faffing about with lace and other decorative trims. It's all about the function and fit of the panty, which means men who are looking for pretty styles are out of luck with VF, I'm afraid.

Vanity fair loved by me and so many others.

I love Vanity Fair for men LOL
I have ten different colors wear everyday.

I like panties as well. I ordered new panties this morning. I have a drawer full of used panties that I have worn in the last year. I am 71 years old and panties are the under wear for me. I have briefs, bikinis, boy shorts, hipsters, french cut, and of course more than one of the G-string type of panties. I wear panties made of nylon exclusively. They are more comfortable for me. I have no plans to wear any other female underclothing. .
Sean on September 20, 2019:
I have been wearing panties for years now. The first time I tried a pair on, I was hooked. They are so much more comfortable and cooler than the thick cotton men’s are made of.
I wear high rise and don’t mind all sheer or lace because they are cooler. In fact it’s almost like wearing nothing.
I guess it’s the same for many women who are now wearing men’s . Don’t understand why anyone would want to wear mens . Women claim they are more comfortable. To each his/her own. It is not cross dressing it’s a matter of comfort nor does it have anything to do with gayness.
Wear what you like and forget what people think. Amen!
jerry on September 17, 2019:
I enjoy wearing panties. I enjoy wearing Vanity Fair panties the most. I like the full brief most of all. I wish more colors were available for my choice. Nylon panties have such a nice feel to my skin. I like wearing them during the summer most of all. Panties with a nylon half slip and skirt is wonderful for wearing in the summer, fall,and spring. It is ok in the winter but a little cool. Panties with lace are very nice as well. Men should try wearing panties with lace they will love them.

I real love wearing VF panties I started wearing PANTIES WHEN I WAS 13 YEARS OLD I A'M NOW 55 I wear panties 24\7 and its all that in my underwear drawer next to my bra's. I 'm not gay just know what I like in my undies.
Old panty man on November 10, 2018:
Been wearing VF panties 24-7 for 54 years started wearing at age 6 I have well over 100 pair of VF panties. They feel great ant are so comfortable. I only wear the full briefs size 6, I like a full coverage brief. Everybody says VF has limited colors. I dont find that to be the case. Over the years I have collected every color you can possibly name. Thats not to mention the prints, and other designs. The main thing with VF panties is they are just so comfortable.
Dave on November 03, 2018:
15712 have a different color for every day of the week. I am 24-7

I recllback in the 40's there were two major panty brands. They were Vanity Fair of course and Van Raalt. I used to were them both
, don''t know when or why the Van Raalt panties disappeared but they did. Any way I have been wearing Vanity Fair all that time anf will until I can't any more, for whatever reason. I know the Drs. in the hospital don't like men in panties. oh well. OK enough said love VF and always will.
roy on January 10, 2018:

Been wearing VF for over sixty years wife doesn't care, just love the fit on October 15, 2017:
At this point in time &% yrs old I don't think I am going to wear anything else. I have a lingerie girl (woman) at Kohl's that notifys me when new colors come out. I buy 3 pair every 2 weeks. Have well over 100 pair. They feel good and I like the way they look.
Sissy. on September 03, 2017:

stevie on August 16, 2017:
panties are for everyone...the softer the better
Jim on March 08, 2017:
I discovered my panty fetish at age 13 when I hopped into a pair of mom's
pink nylon (tag read: Hollywood Girl 100% Nylon exclusive. . ) married at 22 and once a month I'd pleasure myself in my wifes. Then one night when we were fooling around I remarked how soft her panties were. She invited me to try on a pair. She liked the large bulge. From then on it's been VF's for the last 65 years. I wear panties even to the doctors. Not a word said.
Others have mentioned that VF full cuts are ugly. To me they are soft, nylon, pink panties that when I was preteen all the girls wore. Even though my beloved passed three years ago I can still go it alone in my VF panties.
Bill benet on October 23, 2016:

ed on March 12, 2015:
72 and started wearing vanity fair at age six. Not about to stop now.
David on June 16, 2010:
I am a long time wearer of FV panties and have been seen by other guys in the gym changing room with no reactions. I wish pink was an available color.
Nolyn on June 13, 2010:
Yeah Vanity Fair! My favorite: great fabric feel and a great fit.
Dave on April 16, 2010:
They are the best the high cut are hard to find I like the lace on the side Y yes i have some on right now to bad thay don't come in hot pink.....
Jadi on March 06, 2010:
Thank you, Hope for the great forum, and THANK YOU,Anony... for the 'pleasingpanties.com' info. I have never seen such a bountiful selection of my favorite VF panties. My first order arrived yesterday! They also have a private line of double-gusset panties that I found irresistable!! THANKS!!
Jadi on January 22, 2010:
I love my VF 'Perfectly Yours' panties. I've been wearing the Ravissant and Lace Nouveau briefs for years in both the nylon solid colors and the gorgeous polyester floral prints. I have found them at Penneys, Sears, and the BonTon stores in addition to the ones mentioned above. These panties are, at least in my opinion, the greatest!!
Tom on January 05, 2010:
I wear Vanity Fair Illumination String Bikinis and they are available in 8 different colors at Kohls , I like the fit and feel of these panties and the assortment of colors is an added bonus.
SilkyLuver on November 09, 2009:
I love wearing my smooth soft VF undies. I have 3 pair of body shine illuminations panties. One each, brief, hipster, and high cut. I thought it was cool that a married guy could go into a Macys store to shop for them and the clerk would know right away that I was shopping for me and not my wife. Must be that there are more men wearing Vanity Fair than there are women in them.
TIMWILLIAMS on October 27, 2009:
I am a guy that wears panties. I recently bought a few pairs of the "Fits you perfectly" panties at a JC Penny store a couple weeks ago. They are nice to wear, thought not fancy.
levi on October 11, 2009:
i am a 35 year old male who wears panties all the time. i have tried different brands but vanity fair is my favorite. i love how well they hold up after wearing them under rough blue jeans and wash after wash. not only do i wear them to work, play, and sleep, but as swimwear. my black bikini panties i wear those for sun bathing and swimming. even with all this extra wear my vanity fair panties stil look great. thanks for a fine panty.
nylonpantyman1961 on October 06, 2009:
VF does use wonderful nylon, but the waistbands tend to run tight (no belly here) and the seam falls right on my hip and digs in under jeans. I do have the stretch lace waist that are really cute and fit perfectly. Love your hubs Hope! Thanks for supporting the male panty cause!
cheshirekatt40 on September 05, 2009:
Thanks Hope, Vanity Fair rocks. I recently picked up a pair of honeydew-colored, lace-waist panties that I like just as much as the Illumination style pairs I had been relying on for years.
Bill on September 04, 2009:
You haven't seen Vanity Fair Illumination high cut panties? They come in all colors and fit men great. I have them in red, pink, white, and navy blue. My favorites are the red ones. They are sooooo naughty!
Hope Alexander (author) on September 03, 2009:
I retract my earlier statements, I clearly got this one quite wrong. Woe! :)
Thanks for the link with extra info, anony...
anonybutt on September 03, 2009:
No lace and/or colors on Vanity Fair panties? Surely you jest.
Now, I don't know whether or not these are current production items, but I do know that they are not hard to come by on eBay.
kidme on September 02, 2009:
Many guys has some form of pot bellies.
High waist panties is actually quite uncomfortable, the band will be tight, and will gradually slip down. So.. it very much depend on the wearer.
phil on September 01, 2009:
many of my panties are vanity fair. And they do make colors. I love mine with lace. I discovered vanity fair in the 50's when i stole my first pair from a clothesline. I was too ashamed to buy my own then. I now have many that I bought myself. And unlike other brands,not only are they lovely but they last a long time
Gunnau from Central Coast NSW Australia on August 31, 2009:
I have a few pairs of Vanity Fair panties purchased in the US.
Gotta love the Outlet Malls.
These panties are everything they are made out to be.
Nylon panties are nice against the skin. Very soft and sensuous.
We were also fortunate to pick up some seamless body-wear by Vanity Fair. Shame they don't make them anymore.
Another beautifully soft brand of lingerie is Bali. Only available in the US or online but well worth the try.
