Men Wearing Lingerie in Public: Avoiding Visible Panty Lines
One of my readers pointed out that his biggest concern as a man who wears lingerie out and about during the day is the fear of visible panty lines. Visible panty lines (VPL) are barely acceptable when seen on women, let alone when seen on men, so if you want to wear panties discreetly, its something you'll have to think about. Nothing ruins that big presentation like leaving the CEO of your company wondering where you get your panties from.
What to Wear to Avoid VPL
Here are some tips on what to wear to avoid the curse of visible panty line. They're all fairly common sense and straightforward.
1. Thick Pants
It's pretty hard to get VPL under jeans, because the thickness of the fabric doesn't allow for the contours of your underwear to show through. If you want to wear panties to work and you work in a corporate environment, look for thicker dress pants made of stiff, substantial fabrics.
2. Thin Panties
Another way to cut down on visible panty lines is to wear thin panties with just a little elastic around the legs. Not all panties are made with the same kind of elastic, and whilst some have quite thick, strong elastic which stands out in relief against your skin, there are some with lighter elastic that does not grip so tightly and is not so easily noticeable.
3. Loose Panties
Loose panties make for far less VPL than tight ones. VPL is essentially what happens when your pants pull tight over a tight pair of panties. If the panties underneath are quite loose, then there is much less VPL than if they were tight.
The woman's eternal answer to VPL, wearing a thong is a surefire way to make sure that there are no visible panty lines showing when you wander around the office. Of course, the trade-off is that you're likely to get sweaty cheeks and severe chafing on a hot day.
If you don't like the idea of wearing a thong, you can always go in the opposite direction and put a pair of full brief panties on. While you're wearing these panties, the panty lines will run around under your backside instead of across it, leaving far less scope for visible panty lines.
Then Again, Who Cares?
Whilst you might be all atwitter about wearing panties to work or out and about, the odds are that nobody else is going to notice, even if you bend over right in their face. Because they don't expect a man to be wearing panties, they're not going to attribute lines under your pants to panty lines; rather, it is much more likely that they'll think they're some tighty whities or something of that nature—assuming they think about what's covering your ass at all.
