Men In Panties – A Basic Guide To Panties

Take your pick fellows...

If you've decided to become a Man in Panties, congratulations. It's a big step, and one you should be proud of. Now that you've decided to wear the panties, it's really time to learn about them. Women's underwear is a strange new world. There are a multitude of fabrics, textures, and cuts to learn about, and you're going to want to learn about most, if not all of them.

The Thong. A thong can be very sexy indeed if you like the 'whale tale' effect. If worn lower, a thong is virtually undetectable, which can be a huge bonus for the Man in Panties who would rather not have VPL (that's visible panty line to the uninitiated) at a business meeting, or in the auto shop, or wherever you might happen to work. Of course, if you spend a lot of time bending over, you may find that the thin strip of material rubs unpleasantly between the cheeks, causing chafing and redness.

Bikini Cut. Bikini cut is a popular simple but sexy cut. Rising high on the hips and leaving a little of the buttocks exposed, the bikini is a good look if you want to try something a little more adventurous without going overboard.

Full brief. For those says when you just want a little more coverage, a full brief covers the entirety of the buttocks. The full brief may appeal more to the older man, or you could perhaps wear a full brief when you want to feel particularly serous or professional.

Now that we have the basic cuts covered, let's look at fabric.

Satin/Silk. Luxuriously soft and supple, the feeling of satin and/or silk against your skin may send you into the heavens with every step you take. These materials are very sensual, sexy, and

Cotton: Very simple, very basic, cotton breathes well and can be a good choice if you're just having a low key kind of day.

Polyblends: The poor man's silk and satin, polyblends can be good for men who want some of the texture of silk and satin, but don't want to pay the heinous price tag.

Lace. Ah lace, the most classic of all the materials. You can purchase panties made entirely of lace, or you can have a little lace trim on an otherwise unadorned pair of panties. Classy as you please, or trashy as you like, lace is versatile and ever so delicious.

Mesh. Mesh is often used in various panels to provide a see through effect. Mesh can be a playful, naughty way to express yourself.

Those are the basics. Now sally forth into your department stores and boutiques and treat yourself, you deserve it.

tom 8 years ago

I love my panties, everytime i put them on (24/7) i get a wonderfull feeling about myself. I find the sensation of the fabric, nylon, satan, lace or silk very appealing. The fit is just fine, the narrow crotch is very comfortable and sensious. My wife is happy with my choices and shops with me when i buy new panties. I just wish we wore the same size so that we could share them with each other, i wear a smaller size than she does ( me 5 -she 8).

Calvino 8 years ago from Canada

Being wearing panties for last 6 years 24/7. Don't care if I get seen in public. The other day I went to garage sales and accidently having them poking out to see what people will say, but the only thing I noticed was a few girls looking and smiling!!!

Gemini II 8 years ago

Been wearing panties for at least 20 years. I now wear panties 24/7. Like Calvino said, I sometimes let my pantie show over my trousers to catch peoples reactions. Men usually do nothing, most women just smile. Ocassionally young girls will giggle a little. I love it.

I like to wear satin panties even though they are getting harder and harder to find cheap. I like to wear white shorts with pink silk panties. I know you can see right through them. I only wear them to stores where the emoployees are mostly female. I went to a Wallgreens and bought two pairs of silk panties from the lady at the cosmetics register, one pair red and the other pair dark pink. I went back the next morning with white cotton shorts and the red panties under. When I walked by her, she followed me around a little. I was wearing a baseball cap and knowing that she was following me, I stopped at the area where they sell the fake pony tails. I stood there bending and looking like I was searching the whole while she was behind me or where she could see. She then came up behind me, picked two pony tails and held them up by me and said this one or this one. She was helping me match my hair color.

Hope, I Fell in love with Panties at around 5yo. I'm 49 wear them all the time now + panty hose, girdles, corsets, bras, shoes etc.. Always sleep in soft sexy gowns. No where near passable but I do wear, at least panties, when I go out. I'd like to find a woman that was turned on knowing what's next to my skin. Your hubs have given me some courage to let some ladies "catch me" wearing. As you say, Hope: It's my life, it's what I feel, if you don't approve, tough, I ain't askin' for your leave to live my life!

Thanks Hope

Panties 24/7 for me except visits to the doc or undressing in public, lets face it they are only fabric it is society that has to put a label of "boys wear" or "girls wear" on everything, if you could go into a store and womens and mens underwear was in a big bin together and not in separate "mens" & "womens" sections i bet most of us would wear panties especially once you try them they are so much more comfortable, but the clever manufacturers & retailers wouldn't make as much money so i don't see it happening

Jack 7 years ago

I've been wearing panties since 10. I wear thongs or bikinis 24/7. The girlier the better. I've had some girls notice, many smile, some laugh. but one took me ut shoping for more panties!. That's kick ass.

IMy passion is to wear sheer panties Oh I love it.

Aaron  7 years ago


I love wearing panites & bras; my wife hates it: I also will wear two pairs at once and a body shaper: I also love the feel of a kotex between my leg.

I love tight panties; one or two sizes too small.mty favorites are pink and soft blue; silk; rayon; no cotton.


ILoveLingerie 7 years ago

I love wearing panties, but I can't wear them often. Too risky in my social environment for my tastes.

Thongs, bodies (called teddies in america) and bikinis are my favorites.

Coral 7 years ago

Ive been wearing womens pantys for at least 10 years now,24/7 . I also wear womens shorts and tank tops out on public all of the time.

iwhcpanties 7 years ago

Hi-cut or French cut panties are my choice for any function. Cotton for the SC heat and nylon/spandex combinations for the sexy feels!

Bernie 7 years ago

There is nothing wrong with boys wanting to wear soft pretty things. Why should girls be the only ones who can enjoy the special feelings that female clothing brings to anyone who wears it. I have been cross dressing for many years and I love wearing lingerie 24/7. My wife supports me 100 percent!

iwhcpanties 7 years ago

Would love to wear 24/7 but cant, wife and society won’t allow it. Oh, it is Hi-cut or French cuts only for me though! Bernie, wish my wife was supportive. Thanks Hope!

i love wearing sexy silk and lace pantys.i have on a silk pair of hot pink pantys and matching bra now thay fill so good on me.i wear them 24/7.i have about 100 pair!!!!i will never stop wearing them.

Cory Smith 6 years ago

I know that my girlfriend especially loves when I have a silky pair on that covers all my parts completely. Some styles of panties, especially the hipster, look and fit very nicely on the male figure. A thong or thin lacy item can result in the male member falling out or being too constricted. So, if you're trying to impress your mate by wearing lingerie, make sure to keep this in mind.

I am a man in girls panties/underwear and bras too. I am proud of my self doing this. I like the bikini and hi cut panties the best of all. I am also proud to wear girls bras too. I feel honored for that and I don't care what other people think about me doing this because it's personal.

I love wearing panties, and panty girtles are my favorite. I love the tight feel and the boys not getting tangled up. and the silker the better. Don't have a wife but love the feel

Radovich 6 years ago

I have been wearing panties since I was young and I feel that they are more comfortable than mens underwear. I like the basic cotton bikini because it is comfortable and looks like mens micro briefs. I tend to get embarrassed when shopping for panties but my wife seems to support what I wear. I like cotton bikinis that are plain, with no lace because they are comfortable and still very manly. In the mens section there is virtually the same bikini underwear just one is comfortable and the other leaves me sore and uncomfortable in places.
