When a man decides to wear panties, he is faced with a decision. Either he purchases women's underwear and wears it, or he purchases specialty underwear that is made of the same fabric as women's underwear, but is cut to accommodate the manly parts that women lack.

One would think that men would opt for the underwear designed for men, but it would seem from the comments on these hubs where men have mentioned what panties they like to wear, that men often prefer to wear women's lingerie. In my own experience too, men who like to wear lingerie generally elect to wear women's panties rather than special panties for men.

This is a discussion of the pros and cons of men's and women's lingerie. Comments are more than welcome if you'd like to share your own favorites.

The Comfort Factor

It is a simple fact that men's and women's bodies are different, and in more ways than the obvious. Not only do men and women have different equipment, they are also shaped noticeably differently. Men tend to be longer in the panty region, and women's hips make their bodies rounder. Thus panties designed especially for men are generally much longer than women's panties, and have extra space in the crotch region.

This would appear to be advantageous, as it provides for a more 'natural' fit, but many men seem to enjoy the more restrictive feeling that wearing women's lingerie provides. It is also worth noting that most fabrics will stretch to accommodate the male figure, rendering a special panty for the purpose obsolete.

He's Got The Look

From what I have seen, many panties designed for men don't actually look like women's underwear when they are being worn. They tend to be cut long, and have an appearance somewhere between a bloomer and a diaper. Perhaps this is a harsh comment, but the effect of creating a panty that covers the body from a man's waist to his upper thighs is not at all like the effect that wearing a womans panty, where the material tends to cling to the skin.

Depending on your reason for wanting to wear women's lingerie, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Men who purely wear women's lingerie for the feel of the material may find panties designed for men to be the perfect solution. Men who like not only the feel of the material, but also the feel of the particular way women's panties cling to the body will probably find panties designed for men to be unsatisfying.

On the plus side, panties designed for men do tend to have a great deal of detail on them. Because the manufacturers understand that their clientel is in love with pretty colors, lace, and smooth silky fabrics, you will generally find that Panties for Men or Manties as they are sometimes known are more feminine in appearance than most women's underwear.

      Buying Panties made for men would take the fun out of wearing Panties, I tried a pair of the wife's years ago, they were to small but felt nice, a few years later I found a pair of Panties at a laundry matt that fit, I was hooked, started buying my Panties at stores, plane black & white ones that I could wear to work & the gym, when I found out about online shopping I started buying my Panties online I found so many kinds of Panties, now I have pretty flowers & lacey Panties, I've found that hi-cut & hipster Panties fit the best, I have 2 drawers full of Panties, I like wearing hi-waist Panties that show above my pants when I go out shopping, when I bend over my Panties are showing & thats the fun part of wearing Panties, I don't care who sees my Panties, I also like to wear nylons & womens leggins, with Panties underneath, of course, so guys put on your'e favorite pair of Panties & enjoy the feeling.

      When I was a little boy (I am going on 70) My mom would take me to stay with her baby sitter (Margret). I was about 4 then. She had a daughter (Kathy) the same age and size as me. I would often stay over night with them. After my mom left to go to work or wherever, Margret would put me in Kathy's dresses and slips and fix me up like her little daughter. She would put me to bed wearing silky, very girly slips. I later became addicted to silky panties. She painted my finger nails too. I remember it felt exhilarating !! I have been addicted to women's lingerie and dresses ever since then. I have never been able to kick this addiction. I all feels indescribably exhilarating while at the same time it is incredibly embarrassing ! My mom never knew about this and I kept it a deep personal secret until she died in Oct,2011.

      I have been wearing women's painties since 2012, when I had prostrate surgery called the "Terp" procedure. After healing up, I was left with a small drip after peeing. If I pee at home, I can stand or sit until the drip completely stops, but when I'm off working, shopping or just away from home, I can't stay in a public restroom at the urinal for five minutes dripping, so I wear womens thin panty liners without wings and that solves the problem. By dealing with that problem, my wife sugested that I wear a pair of her painties, so all I have to do is unzip and pull down my panties, and take my hardwear out to take a leak, without taking my trousers off. The nylon painties stretch without my panty liner coming unhinged and loose. My old men's cotton underwear want accommodate the pantie liner with a fly. She handed me a pair of her Victoria Secret painties and said, "Lloyd, you can wear my painties and your problem is solved". That's when I started wearing women's panties and I absolutely love them and will never go back to those very uncomfortable men's underwear. The nylon with Spandex, fits me just great. My wife gave me all 12 pair of her medium size Victoria Secret bikinis and I love them. I originally gave them to her. They have just a little bit of lace. She purchased several different brands of painties for me, to see what fits me best and Jockie nylon string bikinis are a perfect fit. The Victoria Secret cotton crotches and Jockey cotton croches are removable. I wear Jockey Classic Tactel Nylon Stretch with 10% Lycra Spandex. My wife bought me a varity of them, all different colors, because we coud not buy just one color. The stores only had about 1 or 2 of the same color. I wear conservative colors to the doctor's office. A nurse told me she was goung to buy her husband some now, after I told her how comfortable they are.

      They feel so good on me. Right before my wife passed away, 2 years ago, she said, "Lloyd, you can inherit my panties, so don't give or thro them away. I want you to wear them and think about me". We both wore size 6 or medium. Oh how I miss my beautiful wife.

      The whole reason for wearing womens panties is because they're womens panties. I wear them daily,even to sleep in. Makes me feel sexy and a little feminine. And when I add garter belt hose and heels the prancing begins!

      Having been a wearer of women's panties for over 30 years, it is my preference to wear exclusively the vintage nylon styles of the 50's and '60's.

      This steams from my early panty experiences from the 1960's, when lingerie was quality.

      It's also the nice wide double fabric gusset...

      Keeps me in a semi state of arousel.

      Love wearing panties. Its not only the comfort, but mostly for turn on of wearing a women's intimate. The softer the better. Lace also adds a sexy touch. There are times that I enjoy the feeling of my panty riding up my butt. That is a constant reminder that I have on panties. It will create some VPL so beware.High cut is one of my everyday panty choices.

      I wear womens underwear for support. I'm normal size but I shrink up, and whitey tighties suck. The pocket in the front you have to fill degrades you. Panties are soft, supportive. Mens underwear SUCKS they just dont get it.

      These are the best quality and silkiest nylon panties of all to wear.

      The ultimate nylon panties for me.

      Have many of them, and always buying more.

      My lingerie drawers runneth over with them.

      I enjoy very much wearing women's panties. I have been wearing panties for 5 years now. I never wear men's underware anymore. Panties feel so much better. I'm trying to wear bra's in public but am still nervous about the idea. I have read the article about men wearing bra's to work. I'm trying to get over my fear of being noticed with a bra on.

      I have a lovely, understanding wife and tge young ladies who design my knickers/panties are lovely and understanding too.

      I'm known has the bodyguard in and out of work, so I wear panties/knickers that are designed for men to help me chill.

      Plus knickers/panties are more comfortable and more softer than mens pants.

      I started courting my wife at age 19. She was 20. She wore Vanity Fair panties. We got into heavy petting. She used Jerking lotion to cut down on the friction but it would mess up my pants. She started putting her nylon panties over my privet parts and smoothness drove me wild. It wasn't long before she suggest I wear her panties all the time. She made them part of our love making. That was 55 years ago. Since then we have worn the same kind of panties every day. We shot for them together. She loves to touch me in my panties till I climax at home or in the car and even in the movies. I will never stop wearing women panties. If I die first she said she wants to bury me in a pair. When I go to the hospital or doctor,s office the female staff seem more excepting of my having on panties and often voice their approval and many say they wish their husband would wear women panties. I tell them to buy some and ask them to wear them. My doctor's nurse said she took my advice and her husband wears her panties every day and it has stimulated their sex life.

      I think most women are flattered if their men wear their panties.

      What can be said.....women's panties are the most amazing panties ever. I love the Victoria's Secret Everyday Panty in silky smooth fabric. The colors, the smooth feel against the skin, the thrill of buying them for yourself in a store that is set for women, and you are wearing them while shopping....amazing! They fit so perfectly, both the thong and bikini and even the boy short! They caress, and snugly hold your package just so, and should you get excited, they still hold you in place perfectly!

      I love wearing them backwards even, as you get more coverage and material in front to caress your business....even while working during the day and no one is wiser to your perfect panty experience...and you now have a perfect thong!

      Then, when you couple it with thigh high stockings, it just completes the feeling of complete sensual coverage of panties and nylons.....

      But even more when you slip on a Victoria's Secret slip in white....to complement your perfect panties, it is overwhelming!

      I LOVE WEARING PANTIES!

      My one experience in buying "panties for men" from Manties.com was a negative experience mostly due to the fact that they were poorly made. It's a lot easier to just shop for women's panties at the store - you can see what your getting and they are generally well made.

      I only wear real, authentic women's panties. Manties not only don't look like real panties but they don't fit like "real" panties. If I'm going to bother wearing panties, I want the REAL panties and get the full effect of wearing women's panties, not men's panties. There is something taboo about wearing women's clothing made for women as opposed to wearing women's clothing made for men.

      I prefer the cut, the look and the feel and knowing that they were designed and made for women. it's far more exciting and emotionally rewarding wearing the real thing, shopping in the women's section of the stores and wearing what women would actually wear.

      I am a man. I wear panties all the time. But I won't go for these "mens panties" that are now out in these sites. I wear the womens/girls panties that you get at Wal-Mart, Sears, ETC that are sold in the womans/girls lingerie departmants.

      I intend to stick with the actual girls and womens panties/underwear and the actual womens and girls bras as well. I won't wear the "panties for men" nor "bras for men".I just stick with the womens/girls stuff. Besides, if you want to wear bras and panties, get the real womens and girls stuff like I do and wear. It's the whole fun of it to wear the actual girls and womens underwear and bras.

      I love my selection of panties. I have also chosen women panties due to other reasons. I would love to see more women support the men in this. Reading Hopes writings it fully supports what a man wants to wear. I am not against cross dressers. In fact i support them. My wife does support me wearing panties, other than that she don"t agree with. I can live with that, and respect her for what she wants and likes. In fact i have tried a bra and not happy with the looks or fit. I will stick to my panties and be happy that me and my wife enjoys my panties. I also enjoy when she wears matching panties with me. In short men if you want to wear panties, bras or anything else go for it and don't hide it.

      Personally, I have been wearing panties since my mother dressed me in them as a young child. As a middle age man, I still love them. My wife now buys them for me often but balks at the lacy frilly type. I wear them everyday, even to the doctors office as I do not own any male underwear. I have purchased panties from xdress and from other specialty shops but they are much more expensive than the run of the mill ladies panties and personally, I like the high of wearing ladies panties. The xdress panties I have purchased do hold up though. One thing I love about wearing ladies panties is the VPL and the lines of the crotch area. Mens panties do not have the cotton liner and thus do not have the look that I adore. Personally, If I am going to wear panties, I want to look in the mirror and see a visible panty line that looks accurate.

      for a couple days now I have been reading this site. Today I was going in and out of hospitals(12) for my job, this site mde me want to be adventurous. I wore my 6 strap garter belt, black lace top stockings back seem, and pink ruffled boy cut rhumba panties. I did a lotof walking though hospitals talkking to doctors, yes it was a thrill feeling the straps on the back of my legs with every step I took.

      I almost exclusively wear panties under my ladies pants, and either the tin ladies pant socks or PH. No i do not try to hide it under my legs, nd yes I have been caught. My pants today were light enough tht the straps could be seen if you knew to look. I also like to wear Ph under shorts, or with an oocasional Denim or my leather skirt, both knee leangth. It definitely is fun beeing a secure male.

      I remember dressing in my sisters clothes at 8 yrs old, today I have my own wardrobe. I also don't see a problem with a t-shirt dress or a caftan type outfit. I don't think I woul go much further thou.

      I have been wearing panties, bras, lingerie, and female clothing virtually all my life. I had an overwhelming desire to dress as a girl by the time I was 5 years old. In my opinion, wearing panties and girly things in general come from the need that some of us guys have to be feminine women. We love to be women in every way and slipping into a soft, pretty pair of panties, a new shiny satin bra, or some pretty lingerie satisfies that need and makes us crave it again and again. To meet this need, we need to be able to purchase and wear panties, lingerie, and clothing that is designed for women, not some ugly tacky looking garment that was designed for men but with feminine qualities. We do not think like men. We are women in every regard except for our physical bodies and we want to look, feel, and be treated as such. I personally love being a woman and will never be able to buy enough pretty panties, bras, lingerie, and pretty clothes to satisfy me.

      Panties from Shadowline-lingerie.com are the best available. The Hi-cut satintrique panties fit exellent for men.(get 1 size smaller than you usually get) They have others without a cotton crotch. Their slips are great. They have the silkiest fabric ever. You can find them on e-bay but are cheaper on their web site. The slips are cheaper on e-bay.

      The bad thing is they are going out of business this summer 2009 so get what you can now. They are much better than Vanity fair or Victoria Secrets.

      I've been wearing their panties for more than 15 years and have a drawer full and am stocking up. Try them once and you will scramble to get more quick.

      I started at 13 wearing my mom's pink nylon full cut panties. I stopped just before I got married, but after a year or so I tactfully brought up the idea that her panties looked comfy. My lovely wife told me to try on a pair. From then on we/ve both been wearing Vanity Fair full cut nylon briefs. Her age is an unlisted nuimber, but Im eighty. Thirteen to eight is. . . You do the math.

      My wife has paid a lot for silk boxers for me. The soft, light, tickly fabric makes nice sleepwear. The lack of stretch manifests as splits in the fabric the next morning weven in the largest sizes. Non-stretch satin produces the same result. I coninue wearing them after they split so that she won't feel badly. For me these these are better suited to vertical activities.

      To avoid splitting, stretch panties hug and can hide a bulge if you want to. Didn't Maasters & Johnson report that 77% of men wear or have worn their wife's or girlfriend's underwear? I guess I'm not the only one who enjoys that endorpen rush - that "peaceful easy feeling." Cuddling, snuggling, spooning when both wear a loose nightgown is another source for those endorphens.

      Here's an unexpected bonus: until the onset of my wife's arthritis, my wife would massage my shoulders after a long drive. When I wore a bra (or backpack) the straps would pinch close to the aching muscle. I would always push the straps closer to my neck. Now I enjoy a racer-back sports bra that hits the spot for 2 reasons.

      Pantielover has hit the nail on the head so to speak. Why in the world would I want to buy panties made for men! Vantie Fair make about the the best soft and silky pantie I have found. You can buy them for a good price compared to the crazy high price they want for Manties or any other pantie made for men. My wife and I have a great time going to the store and buying them for her and I. I have benn wearing silky panties for 35 years and love every minute of it.

      thr thrill of having womans panties next to your softest spot is a thrill that no pantie made for men can give you . panties are sexy,taboo,forbiden ,arowsing .A pantie made for men takes all of that alure away and leaves you with a mans undershorts that no woman would ever wear .We wear panties to fil a sexy need inside that mens underwear can not fill.

      You can lie to yourself and say that it is ONLY the matirial but in that case the manties still look like panties .so why bother ,it is just someone trying to make money on our choice of attire .

      the entire allure of womens undies is that they are WOMENS undies.

      I too am a married man of 30 years and I began wearing panties when I grew tired of finding nylon bikini underwear to only have a store stop carrying them.

      After discussing it with my wife I decided that nylon panties would always be around and began wearing them 24/7. love it because I have so many choices in fabric, styles, and colors.

      I wear Nylon and Satin Brief, bikini, string bikini, hipster, and control brief panties and womens fit me great! I guess because there aint to much down there.:)

      I agree with nylon & ross I also love the nylon panties of yesteryear. I like them so much that I probably spend close to a $100 a month on Ebay shopping and buying brief and vintage style panties, this is not to mention the panties that my wife buys for me. She loves it that iam comfortable with her and myself, it has made our relationship as strong as I've ever had. I've been wearing panties for about 30+ years and have loved every minute of it.

      I agree with Ross...I love the nylon panties from yesteryear that my mom & sisters wore. The kind that had the double nylon in the crotch. I really do wish that I could find a manufacturer that still makes them like that.

      I wear womens panties because they are panties. Manties are usually made cheap with lower end materials. I like quality fabrics as I am a very tactile person. I only own items created by Victoria's Secret or Fredericks of Hollywood. I have tried panties made for men and was turned off by the low grade fabric. It is also much easier to go to the store and shop then play a guessing game with online purchases. I would rather have bras and panties of high quality than high quantity.

      Personally, I like the full silky lacy satiny most femenine panties because I think if I want to wear panties, I should go the whole hog. But they are impossible to buy over the counter. Which department stores offer the best off the shelf panties?

      I agree with both your assesments Hope but you left out one other aspect of wearing traditional ladies panties.....the mental/emotional THRILL of wearing panties meant to be only worn by WOMEN. However...my site offers the perfect 3rd alternative. I go to true panty manufactures and have them make there regular panties but with double nylon gussets rather than cotton.....like the panties from the 50's and 60's. In every other way they ARE ladies panties. Plus...in some cases...I suply the fabics as today panty manufactures use the cheapest nylon fabric available while I supply fabrics of vintage nylon quality.

      I agree with the your assessment about how Panties made for men (Manties) don't

      really don't look like womens panties. I also think that they are extremely overdone. Even the xdress variety. Personally, I will stick to my women's hipsters, boyshorts and thongs. They are more accessible and there is such a huge variety out there that is infinitely more tasteful.

      And they are far more comfortable...sometimes even more so with a careful alteration at a dressmaker.

      This is true and applies not only to panties but to many other items. In my opinion even the most efeminate pink silk shirt will have no chance if compared with any simple and severe cotton blouse. It is not a matter of fabrics, colors or designs, it is a matter of gender identities.
