About Hope

Hope Alexander is an unlikely fashion guru, pseudo philosopher, and lady who likes men who wear lingerie. Some say that Hope Alexander once round housed Chuck Norris. (After he claimed that public health care would have invariably resulted in the Virgin Mary aborting Jesus.) Others say she eats LOL cats on toast for breakfast and that she once scaled Notre Dame holding a freedom fry in one hand and a baguette in the other. It later turned out that the whole stunt had been filmed not a mile from a major road, which caused a major backlash against her popular bounty hunting tv series in which she bailed out ice heads, then tracked them down whilst wearing feathers and beads in her hair. Today, a shadow of her former self, she writes on the Internet.

Palais Royal Panties For Men

calais royal panties

Royal things are in at the moment, thanks to the courtship, marriage and subsequent nigh inevitable spawning of a couple of late twenty-somethings being fetishized internationally in a way that makes the love for panties in this place look like a passing interest. But we’re not here for my views on current events and the world at large, we’re here because panties. And these are certainly panties. The ‘palais’ in the name of these panties evokes a certain Frenchness, which I approve of because to my mind, royalty rather peaked with the French Revolution and frankly hasn’t been the same since.

Behold the beautiful sequined mesh of this lingerie, formed like the spokes of a wheel which turns and turns but never becomes stale. There is a matching bra for this panty, the blue style of which is referred to as Konigsgarten, or as we English speakers like to call it ‘the King’s Garden’ – and what more appropriate name for panties which will surely appeal to male wearers of the finest lingerie?

Sand Zebra Animal Panties For All Day Comfort

sand zebraDo you like to wear panties all day long? Do you like to be comfortable whilst you do it? Do you think the concepts of sand and zebras aren’t combined often enough? If you answered yes to any of those questions. Or if you answered no to any of those questions, then these are possibly the panties for you. Designed to be super comfortable in a range of color styles, including the outrageous animal pattern shown above. But there’s also two shades of brown, which is great news for the beige brigade. One is mocha, and one is plain sand. For people who thought that the animal print waistband was too gaudy. In addition to mocha and sand there’s black, black with animal print waist and minty blue. Minty blue. Heck yes.

But that’s not what’s truly exciting about these panties. What’s truly exciting about them is that they feature 4-way stretch, which I think means that these panties stretch through the x,y and z axis – as well as through time itself.

Panties Under Five Bucks From Rene Rof

cheap panties for men

In spite of the fact that the maker of these panties sounds like something my dog might say after spending an afternoon chewing grass, these are some pretty and inexpensive panties that won’t break the budget. Unless the budget was less than 4.95, in which case, they sort of will. What these panties lack in price, they make up for with a plethora of prints and styles. Frankly, I can’t stop feasting my eyes on many of these designs, they look good enough to eat. Click on any of the images in this article to be taken to product information for the panties displayed. There are just so many in such a vibrant range of colors I can’t pick one pair or style to feature.

Some might call these garish, and maybe they’d be right. But you know what else was fairly garish? The 80’s and I don’t think any of us regret the 80’s. Right?

Embrace Lace Chemise, Bra and Panty Set

embrace lace lingerie for men

Why not wear a chemise with your favorite panties? This three piece ‘Embrace Lace’ set from Wacoal is comprised of highly sophisticated and unique lingerie. I say three piece, but you can mix and match out of several different panty cuts and bra styles, which means whether you’re a follower of thongs, or a believer in briefs, there’s an option for you. I started this little piece because I had a fascination with the chemise, which is so wonderfully detailed, especially in the white on black version. There’s something about white lace laid across black mesh type fabric that is sensual and alluring. The bodice of the chemise is much more detailed than one commonly expects to find in a garment of this nature. The cup area is sheer, but the herringbone pattern of the light mesh fabric makes it a classy kind of sheer, a dance of the seven veils sheer, rather than 1980’s Cheer sheer. You know what I mean.

Perfect for anyone in the plus sizes, or a man who likes a little room in his lingerie.

Shapely Long Thong Panties

The thing about thong panties is that the wearer is often denied the pleasure of a great expanse of lingerie. With these long line shaping thong panties, that’s not so much of an issue. You can have the cute thong cut that leaves your derriere bare for activities of one shape or another, and also enjoy a nice comfortable and comforting high rise panty. These come in the boudioir maroon pictured above, also in a black and cream and an almost beige combination, so you can be as daring or as demure as you like.

Jade Green Rose Red Lingerie

red green lingerie sets

Lingerie is best when worn in combination with other lingerie. Lingerie lends itself to layering, but it doesn’t much lend itself to lending. Something about hygiene or something along those lines. I don’t know. Who can keep clean thoughts in their head when feasting eyes on satin and lace in colors which are frankly more appropriate for Christmas time, but I’m against seasonal grasping at colors. They limit imagination.

With this lingerie set you get yourself a nice lace trimmed bra, a garter set and matching panties. Get one in each color and you can turn yourself into a veritable vintage Christmas tree in mid-summer.

Corsellete Lingerie Shapewear For Men

corsellete for men

It looks like a corset, but this shapewear will do more than suck you in. It will help put curves in the right places with a clever design which not only tucks in anything that might be hanging loose, but also creates the visual appearance of curves by merit of the shape of the patterned material against the black ‘background’ of the garment. That’s science! Lingerie science! And art.

Wearing Lingerie With Your Lady Can Be Done | He Wears Panties Reader’s Story

This came in the form of a letter, but the writer was kind enough to let me share it with everyone. Hopefully this will inspire those of you perhaps feeling as if lingerie and relationships just can’t mix.

Hi Hope,

I’ve been reading your hubs for years now and your point of view helped me to further understand myself as a lingerie wearing man. I was married for a little over five years and it came to an end for various reasons, but one of them was that I was not honest with my ex about wearing lingerie. I look back on it now, some three years later and own my part in the breakdown of my marriage however, I am now with a wonderful woman who understands, accepts and encourages my lingerie wearing! We are both second timers and when we met and knew the relationship was going places, we promised to always be honest with each other about everything no matter what. NO secrets this time!

I was able to build up the courage and I explained myself to her and she was fascinated! She didn’t run away or freak out. She took the time to hear me out and understand who I was. It’s been an amazing ride so far! We shop for lingerie together and have a HUGE selection of bras, panties, stockings and the list goes on. Before I met her I mostly stuck with panties and a bra here and there but not often. Now she encourages me to wear bras and loves to see me in them. My sex life has never been better!

What’s even cooler is that she spent some time reading all she could about men like me, and found your sites (here and the Hubs) and it further expanded her understanding. If it wasn’t for people such as yourself, men like me would still be pretty apprehensive about exposing who we really are. I’ve never felt so free and comfortable in a relationship before. I don’t have to hide or keep my collection under lock and key anymore. All of our panties are where they should be; in a dresser. Same with our bras. Our outfits hang in the closet as they should and I have free choice to wear whatever I want, when I want, unless she chooses for me of course!

So, I just wanted to send this off to you to say THANK YOU and to let you know another one of your readers/fans made it to the promised panty land by finding an amazing, supportive woman who just lets me be me.
