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.

Grenier Serenade Garter Belt

Just for something a little different, let’s talk about garters. I think that this garter will be popular with the ‘lingerie for sensuality’ and ‘lingerie for femininity’ crowds because well, it’s utterly gorgeous and comprised of thick bands of lace that will swaddle your midsection in the way only loving lingerie can do. ┬áThe lace band is a full 7 and 3/4 inches long at the front and sides, that’s coverage above and beyond the call of duty. The rear of the belt is also divine, you can follow the link below to see more product pictures, but trust me when I say that the ‘U’ shaped cut out will show your pantied rear to perfection!

Lingerie Challenge Accepted: Pretty Plus Size Panties Under $10

There’s been a little discussion on the forum lately about the panties and lingerie I post about here. One reader mentioned that many of the posts weren’t entirely relevant to his interests as he wears larger size panties and also likes to maintain a respectable $10 budget when it comes to his lingerie. That sounded like a very worthy challenge to me, so I’ve collected a few attractive plus size panties under ten dollars, for people who like their lingerie large and their price low.

Torrid Plus Size Black Lace Cheeky Short

I had to go deep for something truly naughty and lacey under ten dollars, but these panties by Torrid came through like the champions they are. Gorgeous and revealing, they’re available all the way up to 4XL for $8.50.These panties come in a range of colors, ranging from hot pink to sweet feminine baby blue with stars, to stripy buzzy bee, to polka dot to popcorn theme. There are a lot of panties in this range, and they have a lovely soft whimsical nature. You can even get them in ‘Hello Kitty’ styles if that sort of thing floats your boat.

Olga Secret Hug Panties

I almost added an additional limiting factor of ‘nothing that comes only in white or beige’ (even if it was a little pretty) because frankly, frumpy plain plus size panties are an insult, to panties and the people that wear them. But I made an exception for these Olga panties, because Olga is notoriously allergic to color in all sizes and frankly, these panties are gorgeous and a total bargain at just $5.00.

Avenue Plus Size Rose Hi Cut Panty with Lace

These panties are somewhat of an unknown proposition, but at $8.90 and running all the way up to size 28, they fit the plus size bill admirably. They’re a hi-cut cotton blend panty, and the hi-cut style has always been popular with men who wear lingerie on account of the coverage the cut offers. They too come in an admirable range of styles and colors, perfect for the plus sized panty wearer who wants a bit of choice.

Leg Avenue Lace Garter Belt w/ Matching Thong

Pretty? Check. Pink? Check. Comes with a garter belt, which was also a request on the forum? Check. Under ten dollars? Check at $9.75.

Good Devil Lace Panties For Men

Here they come, the lace panties made for men, lace panties that not only fit the male figure, but also, and I quote ‘provide lift for your package’. Lovely.

These are brilliant panties for men who don’t want the (social or perhaps spousal) hassle of wearing women’s underwear, and whilst that’s not every man who visits this site, it’s got to be a relief for those who are tired of fighting about what constitutes ‘men’s underwear’. These say ‘men’s’ right on the label.

Even the copy from the retailer is delicious: Your fetish for lace need not go forbidden anymore! The Good Devil Lace Boxer gives the manly lover of lace the same sheer, delicate feeling with a more anatomical fit in the pouch area. Elastic trim around the waist and legs keeps a snug fit that won’t show up under your pants. The stretch lace feels airy and smooth against your skin, and is sheer enough to be both naughty and luxurious.

Embrace Lace For Men, Wacoal Panties

Afraid of getting coal for Christmas? What about Wacoal? Ha! I see what I did there. Barely tenable seasonal puns aside however, would you look at these pretty purple lace panties? They’re from the ’embrace lace’ series by Wacoal and they’re beautiful. There’s the white floral embroidery that makes the waistband its own, and then there are the horizontal beams of pretty, sensual material that give these panties structural integrity. So delightful! The color you’re looking at there is ‘Deep Wisteria’, they also come in Naturally Nude (beige), Fig / Very Berry (one name is not enough), Mocha Espresso (the sort of beige that makes other beige jealous, and Black and white.

See the pretty panties!

Satin Low Rise Bikinis With A Lace Frontage

I don’t know about y’all, but I find Christmas very stressful. What I don’t find stressful is lingerie. Which is not to say that lingerie is part of this alleged war on Christmas lead by Jim Carrey’s grinch and a pack of rabid penguins.

Anyway, on with the panties, where my coherency might be greater. These panties are low cut, satin in the back and lace in the front, which is a sensual way to package your, ahem, goods this Christmas. We’re back to Christmas again. Deck your manly parts with delicate lace this season, and celebrate good will to all!

Lace Thongs and Mini Shorts For Men

These lace panties are 100% lace and 100% designed for men. I know this will be somewhat contentious for some men, who prefer their panties to be made for women, but for those who have been waiting for lingerie manufacturers to get around to giving men some visually appealing underwear they may be very welcome indeed. Also for those men whose partners whine when they don’t wear ‘men’s underwear’ – well, here’s your men’s underwear! They come in both black and white, which is one more color than the original Ford automobile, so that’s nice.

Cheeky Lace Panties For Christmas

We’ll get to the pretty panties in a second, but first, Christmas madness!

December 15th or thereabouts should be remembered as the day that Amazon.com went a bit mental and started putting choking hazard warnings on their panties and noting that they should not be given to children under three. I’d advise not giving adult sized clothing to children under three as a general rule, but it’s nice to see Amazon taking a stand for those challenged by the notion of basic common sense. Now on with the panties, which I can assure you are perfectly safe for adults of either gender.

Jezebel Show Off Cheeky Boyshort

 

My favorite style of panties, boyshorts with a high rear cut are the perfect fun panty. Actually, they’re pretty much the mullet of lingerie. ┬áBusiness in the front, party in the back! Who’s with me? Everyone, that’s who.

Olga Without A Stitch Hi Cut Panties

Endorsed by so many men who love women’s lingerie that some women have been slightly intimidated, Olga Without A Stitch Hi Cut panties have turned out to be a winning style for both men and women. The proof of that is in the widespread popularity of their leopard skin, butterscotch, and ruby coloured panty pudding.

From Amazon reviews…

‘For men who like to wear panties with a little feminine touch, these panties are a good choice. They fit a man well, are very light weight, and the lace makes them look very feminine. They hold up great to washing, lace doesn’t fray and they keep their elasticity so they don’t sag, another great quality panty by Olga.’

What’s really nice about these is the fact that the ‘no stitch’ design means that they’re almost undetectable under everyday clothing. Perfect for a man who likes good coverage and even better discretion.

Calvin Klein Naked Glamour Bikini Panties

It’s been a week or so since the last update and I wanted to find some fun panties to talk about. These ‘naked glamor’ panties are just the ticket for several reasons. Let me itemize them for you, we can pretend as if we’re in a meeting if you like.

1. Bikini. The bikini cut is one of the most popular cuts of panties for men.
2. ‘Naked’ right there in the title. Cheap titillation always wins me over, I don’t know about you.
3. The nakedness in the title seems to refer to a certain native indetectibility about these panties. I just made up a word. Get someone from legal to protect that, would you? The beige model in particular could probably cause some consternation from onlookers thinking you’d lost your genitals entirely on account of the smooth somewhat shiny optical illusion created by these panties. Is that a selling point? I don’t know.
4. Shininess. These panties are made of microfiber and they shine. They gleam. They may even glisten under the right circumstances. Though I have the beige model pictured, they come in a wide range of colors and indeed, prints.
5. The last, but perhaps the most important. These are in the top twenty of all bikini panties sold on Amazon.com – that means someone’s doing something right with these babies.

Super Soft Touch Wacoal Panties

Bright red panties are always an eye catcher, and for reasons best known to the elves that run the lingerie industry, relatively rare throughout most of the year, save for certain occasions that need not be named. These gorgeous ‘Awareness’ panties from Wacoal come in both crimson and iris orchid (a pale purple, if you find the red too brash and glaring.)

Wacoal has a reputation for producing lingerie that is second to none in terms of quality and comfort, so you’re in good hands when you purchase a pair of Wacoal panties. The ones pictured here are made from a special blend called ‘tactel’ nylon, which is a type of nylon created to have a similar feel to cotton. Unlike other nylon, which can cling and cause the wearer to become sweaty, tactel nylon dries eight times as fast as cotton, is three times as resilient and is twice as soft as other similar fibers. In non scientific terms, that means wearing panties made of this type of nylon is not unlike wearing a gentle summer’s breeze about your nether regions.

Shadowline’s Luxurious Nylon Nightgown

The nights are growing colder in the northern hemisphere and many are changing their skimpy lingerie for warmer woolen garments. But you need not fall prey to nature’s assault on your wardobe, you can choose a different kind of lingerie with fuller coverage.

This lace gown from Shadowline is immensely popular, those who buy this often return to rave about the softness of the lace, the classiness of the cut (perfect for the lingerie lover who prefers to be slightly restrained in their expression of their desires) and the luxurious feel of the nylon fabric.

The stretch lace bodice means that the gown will fit you no matter your level of chest endowment, and the long trailing cut of the gown ensures a regal appearance. Because of the gathered waistline there’s plenty of additional fabric to go around, which means one thing – twirling.

The gown comes in a full range of colors, from Ivory, to Purple, to Gray, to something they like to call ‘Peri Frost’, which is another word for light purple. There are also two shades of red. There’s a simple Red, a deep, passionate red ready to set the world ablaze and there’s Holly Red, which will have you decking the halls all year long.
