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.

Gorgeous Vintage / Pinup Style Panties

Do you love the look of vintage panties but don’t want to shell out for the real thing? These modern made vintage style briefs are gorgeous. They are very high waisted and highly reminiscent of pin up style lingerie. The black contrast trim extends around the rear of the panties into a triangular point that is quite interesting from a style perspective. Those men who prefer a 1950’s feel to their undergarments are sure to fall head over heels for these panties, which also come with a matching brassiere.

These panties are available on Amazon.com…

Mesh Panties for Men

What’s not to love about mesh? All the ‘see through-ness’ of lace without the interruption of floral patterns. Mesh is a very revealing sort of fabric, so one must pick the appropriate time to wear it. I’ve got a few pairs of mesh panties picked out today, so let’s look at them and see what we like.

On Gossamer Mesh Bikini Panties

The ‘On Gossamer’ panties aren’t just mesh, they are also very pretty with scalloped trim and contrasting edges which add a little decoration to what could otherwise be a very serious and sombre panty affair. They also come in a riotous range of colors, from purple and pink to black and blue and many more. This range is definitely worth checking out! There’s also a matching mesh bra for those who like bra and panty sets – and yes, the mesh bra is also see through for added fun.

American Apparel Nylon Spandex Micro-Mesh Low Slung Panty

The American Apparel micromesh panties have the decided benefit of being somewhat gender neutral, so if you’re trying to wear women’s panties without anyone getting their panties in a bunch about it, these have the ‘plausible deniability’ factor that so often comes in handy. These come in just the four colors, black, white, beige and pink so there’s not quite so much color to play with, but the micromesh style might very well appeal to men looking for a slightly less revealing and entirely low cut mesh panty.

Maidenform All Lace Hipster Panties

Two bright berry tones make these lace panties visually appealing whilst Maidenform quality guarantees a soft touch and nice fit. The color shown is called ‘Angel Violet’ with purple trim and there truly is something ever so slightly divinely inspired about these panties with the pretty swirls and feminine colors that draw the eye in for a tasty feast. If the colors don’t appeal, these panties also come in plain white and a variety of other colors and designs including a swirling baby blue, ‘party dot’ pink and several animal prints as well. Long story short, there’s something here for every style sensibility.

Wacoal Retro Chic High Cut Brief

There’s been a lot of focus on the low cuts lately, so here’s something a little higher, the Wacoal ‘Retro Chic’ high cut brief. These panties come in the pictured black, crimson and white. There’s also a range of beiges, tastefully named things like ‘Toast’ and ‘Cappucino’. I consider it no accident that they are named after things you can eat. Though if they really wanted to sell it I’d go with something like ‘milk chocolate’. That would make things completely irresistible.

No Panty Line Panties by Jockey

These panties are white, and as we all know, if I post something in plain white it’s because it is special for one reason or another. These panties are special because they promise no visible panty lines and they deliver on that promise. This is especially useful for men who like to wear panties in their day to day lives, but don’t like to have them seen by all and sundry. Fortunately for people who can’t stand plain white, these panties actually come in quite a range of colors. They come in white, beige and black for instance – also ‘Imperial Plum’, something called ‘Crocodile Gray’ (for people who have never seen a picture of a crocodile, one assumes), ‘Spotty Leopard’ – an animal print for people who do know what animals look like, ‘Steel Gray’ and a variety of ‘sands’ and ‘lights’ and ‘browns’ for those who like a wide variety of beige to choose from.

Biatta Liza Hipster Panties

These are gorgeous panties aren’t they? The black mesh and lace is exciting enough, the cream lace trim around the outside is quite delightful. The cherry on the top is the laced fabric on the back of the panties. In fact, these panties are almost more exciting from the rear than from the front, which somewhat subverts one’s usual expectations for a pair of panties. The rear seam doesn’t hurt the architecture either. I love it when lingerie does something a little bit different. You might think that these are going to be wildly expensive, but they’re on sale between $5 and $7.50, making them pretty cheap for a cute pair of panties.

Dreamgirl Shalimar Charmeuse Babydoll

A babydoll is something longer than a camisole, but shorter than a robe or gown. It’s a little dress like scrap of lingerie that’s designed to hit around about the upper thigh. A silky smooth babydoll can turn the simple act of going to sleep into a slip and slide sensation. This particular babydoll from Dreamgirl also comes with a matching robe so you can cover yourself for a more modest look or let your inner doll shine.

Starting at just $14.95 for the set, this item does come with something of a buyer beware caveat, as it is at the lower end of the price spectrum for lingerie some sacrifices have been made in the name of fabric quality, it is also a rather short item, so if you’re a tall guy you may find that it reveals much more than it covers. This item is probably best suited to those who want to dip their toe into the world of longer lingerie without making significant financial commitment, rather than anyone looking for a long term lingerie investment.

Cotton Bikini Panties With Extra Ruffles!

These panties are so cute, and they’re also cotton. I’m trying to be more open to cotton these days because its a natural fiber and quite a good one for having next to your intimate skin. The ruffles soften what might otherwise be a severe cottony landscape and even better, these come in a twelve pack and they’re only twenty bucks for the whole lot. The bikini cut is perfect for the panty wearing man too, so win win win win win. And win.

Supernatural Low Rise Panties by Wacoal

The low rise and lace party continues with these ‘Supernatural’ low rise panties from Wacoal. There’s probably nothing truly supernatural about these panties. Probably. There is a lot of lace and a great many color combinations however, which are very appealing indeed. The pair pictured are called ‘blue radiance’, but there are many many more color / lace combinations including black and pink, blue and green, red and white, black and white, white on white, lilac on a little deeper lilac – the list goes on.

Barely There Animal Print Lace Tanga Panties

Cheetah print is primal, but when softened with vintage style lace it becomes something different. A fusion between caveman and Victorian – a battle between time travelling stone lords and cane wielding men with stiff upper lips. I love the thickness of the lace bands and many men will find the low Tanga cut both comfortable and appealing. These panties come in the animal print pictured as well as white, black and red, or Electric Rose, Girlie Black and Bright White. The white, black and red models are all 100% lace, so that’s nice if you like a full lace panty.

Half Lace Hiphugger Panties

Hiphuggers are low cut panties that snuggle low around the hips. They’re cut quite nicely for the masculine figure and in the case of these specific panties from Leonisa, are pretty much 50% lace, which is an awful lot of lace, especially for such a small pair of panties. It isn’t lazy lace either, it serves a very noble and beautiful purpose, curving over the cheeks to frame the derriere. In some respects, these panties remind me of the older Olga type panty styles updated for a more carefree and skimpy modern wearer.
