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.

Felina G-Kini Panties

Right now I’m all about panties with fusion names. (As demonstrated by the recent Cheekini post.) If Jekyll/Hyde or Frankenstein’s Monster had a panty line, I’d be all over it. Instead of either of those options, we have something much prettier to feast our eyes upon. It’s the G-Kini from Felina. Bikini in the front, g-string in the back, G-Kini panties provide as superior level of comfort and stability, plus a smoother ride and shorter stopping distances.

Cheekini Panties For Men

Cheekini panties are clearly a play on the ‘bikini’. The general idea of the cheekini is that the rear of the panty is cut quite high across the buttock, leaving a fair amount of cheek showing whilst also reducing panty lines in the process. These are a viable alternative to thong lovers who are growing tired of feeling as if they have a never ending wedgie.

The cheekini panties pictured today are by Betsey Johnson, a firm that isn’t afraid to give their panties some serious names. ‘Hottie Dottie Powderpuff’ is the moniker for the sweet pair shown at the top of this article, whereas the pair demonstrating the rear cut below have been named ‘Layla Leopard Skinny Dip’.

Elle Macpherson Daisy Christmas Panties

These panties were apparently designed to evoke the idea of a daisy chain. Somewhat ironically, they do not come in yellow, leading me to believe that the designers of Elle Macpherson lingerie are locked away far from the corrupting influence of unchecked nature. These, therefore, are panties designed by people imagining the essence of a daisy chain.

Though these show little in the way of the floral theme they are named for, the jolly ‘lipstick red’ of these panties makes them a perfect pair of Christmas panties – and the perfect little lingerie gift for oneself this season. If the red is a little too much, these also come in ‘Jet’ (black) and ‘Vintage Cream’ (beige). In each case, contrasting lace and a smooth fit make these panties look very sophisticated, whilst retaining a little olde worlde feminine charm.

Betsey Johnson Chantilly Floral Bikini

These panties are cute, and I mean super cute. They caught my eye from a mile away, they did. A literal mile. Maybe not a literal mile, but quite far away anyway.

There’s something about a contrast of pink and blue lace that puts a smile on my face, these are some cheerful panties that’s for sure. How could you be sad wearing these panties? You couldn’t be. I’m not saying that putting on some lingerie instantly solves all problems, I am saying that it has a diminishing effect upon them. These panties are therapy in and of themselves. Yes they are.

Perhaps you’re wondering how Betsey Johnson with the extra ‘e’ describes the panties you are even now feasting your eyes upon. She calls them ‘Bluetilicious’, a name that walks the line between cute and sort of ridiculous with all the aplomb of a frilly tightrope walker.

Bali No Lines No Slip Tailored Hi-Cut Brief

He wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny black and white polka dot bikini brief… Actually he wore a rather full hi-cut black and white or perhaps purple and white or maybe even Flirty Magenta Hi-Cut pair of panties, which he felt slipped on like a super soft second skin, revealing no panty lines under his every day clothing, proving softness, smoothness and comfort where it counted, even though the winter days grew long and cold.

These panties from Bali have a sort of retro appeal whilst being made of space age technology, and when I say space age technology, I don’t mean fibers spun from the tear filled remains of NASA’s space program, I mean nylon and spandex, blended in a special formula of no herbs and spices to give you a whisper soft, comfortable, full figured fit.

These briefs know their place, having been designed not to slip, ride up, or require adjustment during the course of a busy day. For a touch of feminine fashion that won’t demand to be picked out of personal crevices at every turn, why not try…

Wacoal Animal Attraction La Femme Panties

You don’t often see brown panties on this site, mostly because the term ‘brown panties’ conjures up unspeakable laundry challenges of the type even the bleach ads won’t directly address. But these panties are different, they’re different because their deep beige coloration is part of an evolutionary strategy to help these panties survive in the lingerie wilds. The sheen to the mesh panels is quite deliberate and very sinuous, making the wearer look a little like they were crossed with a serpent somewhere in their ancestry. Could these be the panties that convinced Adam to eat from the tree of lace delights?

Flexees Panties For Men

Flexees is all about control. These are people who make panties that rise from the tops of one’s thighs to just under one’s bust. They are shaping panties, but being shaping doesn’t put them out of the lingerie arms race for comfort and style. Take these Decadence panties for instance. They may not look overly decadent at first glance, but it is the fit and feel that makes people rave about the soft smooth joys of panties that not only make them look their best, but feel amazing in the process. I love the fact that there’s something just a little gym short about these panties, and the beige piping gives them a little retro touch as well. Men who like to wear panties without drawing vast amounts of attention to themselves in the process will probably like these as well, once on, whose to know you’re not just channeling the spirit of great 1980’s cricketers?

Jockey Microfiber Lace Hipster Panties

Jockey. This is a lingerie brand name I’ve never quite been able to wrap my head around seeing as the word ‘Jockey’ brings to mind a small man wielding a whip. Then again, when we’re talking about the subject of men wearing panties, what better name brand? And what better panties than these lace hipster panties that come in a veritable riot of colors. The fabric is a super soft, almost sheer nylon / spandex blend otherwise known as Lycra, so whilst you’re flashing your panty colors (in the purple above, or rose pink, bright lime, aqua mist, grape jelly and more) you’ll also be inordinately comfortable.

Flirty Ruffled Mesh Boyshort Panties

The thing I most love about these panties is that they are being worn by the invisible man. The thing I second most love about these panties is the combination of mesh and ruffles, which I haven’t seen a whole lot. Usually you get a lot of ruffles and no mesh at all, or mesh, but no ruffles to speak of. These panties combine the best of sheer and flounce to create a pair of devilish panties that will light the spark of lingerie love in even the most jaded lingerista’s heart.

Lace Kiss Bralette

A bralette is a bra for people who don’t really need to wear a bra for support, but like the way it looks. Thus the bralette is perfect for the discerning fellow who likes to not only wear a little lingerie, but an entire ensemble, or for the guy with an eye for lovely lace located a little north of the usual lingerie location. (I’m all hopped up on alliteration folks, it’s been a long weekend.)

The bralette featured in this little article is clearly beige, but guess what they’ve called it ‘mother of pearl’. I like to imagine mother of pearl as a distinguished woman just back from riding her favorite stallion across the English countryside, but this works too. This little lace bra also comes in black and in a rather lovely blue teal.

Viaggio Italian Seamless Cheekie Panties

The Italians do have something of a reputation for being able to do fashion right, and these panties by Viaggio are no exception. Don’t let their relatively plain exterior fool you, these seamless panties are perfect for the everyday male panty wearer, not just because of their low cut, seamless edges and timeless ‘plausible deniability’ design, but because of the silver infused fabric that offers additional protection from sweat and odors that can accumulate during the day.

These panties come in a range of bright colors, including the sunshine yellow pictured above, perfect for bringing warm lingerie rays into the coming winter days. Other colors include a demure pink, a bright blue and a bold fuchsia.
