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.

Jezebel Hipster Panties With Garters

Garters belts and panties unite! I like these, I like these a lot. I think it has something to do with the mesh and the lace both playing an integral role in the general wonderfulness that is this panty combination. Jezebel makes many such wonderful garters if the length displeases you, but I think there’s a certain femininity about the way these garters extend far down the thigh, shrouding it in meshy lace mystique that will delight even the casual panty wearer – or indeed the panty wearer looking to branch out into the delights of hosiery.

‘Edgy Girl’ Lace and Ruffles Hipster Panties

Ruffles and lace and hipster panties, oh my! If you’re an edgy sort of girl, or an edgy sort of guy more likely, you might fancy edging your end into these pretty panties which come in lovely black and white and also white and black, if that’s more your speed. Also ‘Carribean Blue’ and some kind of pink perhaps. I don’t want to get your hopes too high, especially when the black / white, and white / black options are so very classical and monochromatically lovely in their aspect.

Barely There ‘Go Girlie’ Flirt Microfiber Thong

These panties have such a long name one almost suspects that they’re making up for something. It turns out that what they’re making up for is a lack of rear coverage because they’re a thong style panty.

The color of the panties pictured is called ‘lovely orchard’ which is perfectly charming and mildly agricultural. What better color scheme to adorn the region of the body where one’s seed is produced? (That’s not vulgar, I maintain that the designer knew exactly what they were doing when they called purple and blue ‘orchard’. What orchard has blue and purple in it, I ask you? Blue and purple are berry and vegetable colors. But now I have digressed so far from the topic of lingerie that returning to it will take more skill than I have. So I shall end this parenthesis here and allow you to do with this information what you will.)

DKNY Classic Beauty Hipster Panties

The DKNY classic beauty hipster panty is an entire range of panties, a variation on a single theme, a panty plethora. The plain versions of these panties are wonderfully meshy and see through, so if you like having your rear somewhat visible, these will work for those purposes.

If you forget who made your panties, DKNY have thoughtfully written their initials on every single pair, so you can impress other people and enjoy the thrill of brand recognition. Mmmm branding. Saucy.

But seriously, there are some very pretty panties here in a range of colors and styles so whether you’re in a plain white mood or a sort of sparkly red sheer mood you can satisfy your desire.

Maidenform French Collection Tanga Panties

Tanga panties are panties that seem to be bikini panties from the front, but when one turns around they transform into something more like a thong, with minimal rear coverage that leaves a saucy amount of cheek showing.

These Maidenform tanga panties come in several colors and patterns, each mnore lovely than the last. There are deep reds that bloom with sensual style and lighter, pinks that blush across the wearer’s behind. Those who prefer a more austere and serious look will be glad to discover that these panties also come in ‘steel grey’, a very rare color in panties indeed. When it comes to variations on a theme, Maidenform are at the top of their panty game.

If you’re looking for panties that are light, lacy and able to reflect your changing moods throughout the week, I suggest browsing the Maidenform French Collection.

Calvin Klein Lace and Sheen Hipster Panties

Calvin Klein’s lace and sheen panties have a delicate shine to the fabric, a quality that catches the light and elevates what might have been a common lingerie experience to a new plane of sleek smoothness. The effect can be seen quite clearly on the plain blue styles, though it runs throughout the entire line. What’s their secret? I don’t know for sure, but I’m reckoning it can be found in the nylon / elastane blend. These panties come in a wide range of colors and styles, so if you like the cut and style but the color doesn’t leap out at you, you might be well served by viewing these panties more comprehensively at your leisure.

Natori ‘Feathers’ Beige Lace Panties

Today’s lingerie selection was something I poured over for quite some time. I wanted something special, and when you’ve looked at as many pair of panties as I have (which, to be fair, many of you probably have,) you know that a sort of lingerie fatigue can set in after a while. But Natori is a brand that can always be guaranteed to bring two things to the table, originality and luxurious feel. These panties are no exception to that rule. They’re high cut, though the bulk of that high rise is lace. Only the gusset is made of an opaque nylon spandex blend, the front and rear are one solid band of feather styled lace and mesh that leaves little to the imagination.

You’ll notice that these panties are beige, which is an underrepresented shade on this site for reasons I’ve gone into many times, but I’ll give panties as beautiful as this a pass. They can be as beige, or as ‘cafe’ as they want to be. Those who share my aversion to beige can also find these panties in black and a creamy off white. The black is much more dramatic looking than the beige, the high contrast of the darker lace and mesh emphasizes the sheerness of the panties.

Sheer Lacey Panties For Men

Here are two very cute, very feminine and very sweet sheer panties, panties that will not hide all that lies within their soft boundaries. Though quite different in their own ways, they both embody a concept of light lingerie, the sort of lingerie to be worn on a balmy summer’s evening, or a sweet spring day.

Coquette Sheer Panty with Satin Bow

The first panties, from Coquette are absolutely gorgeous. Not only do they have a white mesh that is quite sweet, they have a short lace trim and a rear seam that will define your cheeks in a way that will make you see your rear in a whole new light. These are not the sort of panties that will withstand rough treatment or hard nights, but if one wishes to wear something delicate and to drift for just a while in the flimsy floaty dreams of light lingerie, these are your panties.

Lavinia Sheer Lace Thong

The second panties I’d like to talk about today are actually thong panties. They are rather ornate in nature and unlike the panties above, do not feature a rear of any consequence at all. The thong ensures that the front of the panties is where all the action occurs and with contrasting colors and patterns tracing their way across your intimate areas, there’s going to be a lot of attention drawn there.

On Gossamer Layered Luxe Thong Panties

These panties have a name that makes them sound like one of Santa’s Reindeer, which is a strong selling point. Aside from that they’re also gorgeous, shiny and many layered oh and they have dark contrasting lace. What more can you want? What more do you want? They’ll adorn your crotch region whilst leaving your rear end bare for other activities. Sort of like a reverse mullet.

The panties pictured are the ‘Sapphire’ model, but they also come in Black / Champagne, Champagne / Pina Colada, and Ink / Cornflower – so plenty of ridiculously overdone names to go around there.

Leonisa Laser Cut Bikini Panties For Men

It’s not very often that a pair of plain white panties gets featured on this site, but the moment I laid eyes on them I knew there was something different about them. They fit the moodel snugly with no unseemly seams (no seams at all, as it turns out). They appeared to me to have the semblance of a new species of panty, a panty that no longer relies on primitive joining techniques that have been used since man first realized chewing an animal skin would make it softer.

If you don’t like the plain white, these panties do come in a series of other colors and patterns. Of course, they were designed for stealth, for panty plausible deniability, so maybe white or beige is the best choice. But if you really insist you can indulge yourself with pretty stars on a bold red backside backdrop, a blazing hot pink, a cornflower blue with pretty mauve flowers and more.

Warner’s Lace Hipster Panties

Thick lace waistband – check. Low hipster cut – check. What could make these panties any better? Note the waistline. Warner’s ‘No Pinch, No Problem’ panties eliminate the dreaded ‘muffin top’by having a ‘V’ style front that eliminates the ‘meat in a sausage skin’ effect that can occur with some panties (though one might very well say that if one’s panties are tight enough to do that, one might want to look at going up a size.) These panties come in a veritable riot of colors and prints so there’s sure to be something for every taste. From restrained black lace to wild animal prints with bold colors in between, it’s worth browsing the color range at one’s own leisure.

Almost A Bra! The Piikabu Lace Mini-Cami

Here’s something a little different and a lot fun, a ‘mini cami’ made of lace. It’s not quite a bra, but it is a very exciting entry into the world of chest bound lingerie. Halfway between a brassiere and a camisole, you find this sweet creation. There are no straps to adjust, no back clasps to cause bra lines that might be difficult to explain to the public at large, or to get caught up in other bits and pieces of clothing in awkward fashion. But there is a nice thick band of lace that walks the fine line between drama and comfort. With rave reviews from several satisfied customers, this is a little piece of lingerie you might want to consider.
