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.

The Cutest Little Lace Chemise Ever

How adorable is this lace chemise? Made by Hanky Panky, the people who make the lace thongs that drove Wall Street wild, this lace chemise is perfect for nightwear for the discerning man who loves lace. Oftentimes lace can be scratchy and uncomfortable, but Hanky Panky uses only the finest laces to guarantee the wearer total comfort.

With a sweet floral design and coming in innocent white, this is one piece of lingerie I think most men will find hard to resist.

Would You Be Loved More If You Were A Woman?

A reader left a comment on one of my articles, and I thought it went to the very heart of why some men like pretending to be women. He said:

“For those of us who are touch with our feminine side, I truly believe we do the best we can do to provide that comfort for our girlfriends or wives, so it seems unselfish to me to try to create an environment where we might possibly be able to feel some of that love and comfort”

It would seem then, that some men associate femininity with being loved, cared for and protected.

Jimmy Shares His Love Of Slips

Naughty Nylon Dreams | Fabulous Full Slips For Men

JimmyC20593 says:

I wear a nylon full slip or half slip under my clothes to work everyday depending on what top I am wearing. I cannot get over how wonderful my full slip feels on my chest area and the way the nylon material glides over my panties and the straps pulling on my shoulders as I move. Most of my panties are VS Second Skin Satin Hi Cuts/briefs but have a few VF nylon hi cut panties. I find that the satin slips from Farr West feel wonderful the way it caresses my skin but it does not glide as smoothly over my panties than the nylon slips so that’s all I wear. I wear slips under my jeans, and shorts and love when a little lace escapes from the bottom of my shorts. I would love to have a lady see my slip showing and make a positive comment. I often drive around at night in my full slip, matching bra and panties and thigh highs for fun of it.

The slip is a staple in my wardrobe.

Wives Are Not Jailers

I have received not one, but two separate comments today on various articles from men who wear lingerie and whose female partners either agreed to it up front, then changed their minds after 16 years, or who refuse to allow their men to wear lingerie at all.

First, here are the comments along with the articles they were posted to, following that, my response to men who find themselves in this situation.

Want To Wear Panties and Dresses But The Wife Says No?:

JimmyC20593 says:

Hope. Thanks for this Hub. My wife and I have been married 15 yrs and together for 22 years. I told her about how I liked to wear panties after 6 months of dating and she embraced it. It lead to us wearing matching panties each day, no thongs or cotton lingerie for us. We had numerous matching night gowns and matching baby-doll nighties w/panties we wore to bed, hosiery of all types, a few bras and slips and camisoles that were a match to hers also and a dress or 2 of my own. She was never worried about me looking better or sexier in my lingerie than she did in hers which is what made it fun. I would come home at the end of my work day and change into a casual tank style dress to lounge in until it was time bed. I even went out to pick up food in the drive in wearing this outfit. I received a few looks but never anything bad.

Black Lace Boyshort Panties

Is there any kind of panty  more darkly  alluring and mysterious than the black lace panty? The panties pictures are from Affinitas Intimates, a lingerie designer evidently highly skilled in the art of taking playful panty styles and coaxing the deeper allure out of them.

I love the slightly vintage feel of the large floral pattern mixed with a significant slice of modern minx.

These are panties you’ll be begging to be seen in.  Interested? Just click here for more information.

Pretty Polka Dot Lingerie

polka dot lingeriePolka dots, the remnants of a bygone era have an undeniable charm that becomes even more charming when it is displayed upon lingerie. Polka dot lingerie is sweet, fun, playful lingerie that flatters any body type and provides an admirable alternative to beige. We must always be vigilant in searching for alternatives to beige.

Moderated Comments | Your Penis Is Still Attached

Originally posted on Manly Corsets for Men, this comment includes the word ‘penis’ which as we all know, is enough to make ladies pregnant if they read it. Please be a little more careful people!

Mikk says:

I think the term “manly” is a pretty warped perception for most men these days. I mean come on guys do we really have to be unshaven, fat or super buff, eat raw bloody animal flesh, and be an asshole to be considered a man? Think back in history to the heroes and soldiers of greece, rome, scotland, ireland, asia…every one of them wore dresses of some fashion and they’ve been exalted throughout history. What gives people the right to look down on men who wear anything other than what the latest GQ says we should wear. I say wear what you like and what’s comfortable to you, and if it does happen to be a corset or some kind of frilly underthing, take a good look. Chances are, your penis is still attached.

Also a bonus comment and a link to a story about getting caught with the lingerie. Oh what fun! I warn you, it is quite filthy.

Above is a link to a story about a man caught red… Well never mind, let’s just say caught.

Buying Second Hand Lingerie

floralAh second hand lingerie. It has such a bad name for itself, thanks to Japan and its weird vending machines of days gone by, but second hand lingerie can be a boon for the lingerie lover. It is cheap, it quite often has something of a ‘vintage’ charm, and it is cheap. Did I say ‘cheap’ twice? That’s because it’s usually very cheap. It’s also good for the environment to re-use old garments rather than burying them in land fills.(It’s also very good for the environment not to breed, so keep that in mind the next time the pope breaks into your house through the bathroom window and tries to steal your prophylactics away.)

Moderated Comments | Mike’s Bastard Child

This comment included the word ‘breasts’, which could potentially corrupt the minds of the many youths who seek out my writing and disperse it across the world in between episodes of Spongebob and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This comment originally appeared on Men Who Wear Women’s Clothes vs Women Who Wear Women’s Clothes

Mark says:

Put me in the first group… no wait, the second… er… both!

It’s always Us vs. Them, isn’t it?

Your second group is the one that flabbergasts me. They say skirts are not to be worn by men who look like men. But it’s okay to wear them if you don’t look like a man. Even if you are a man dressing like a woman who quite obviously is a man dressing like a woman. But God forbid you forget your wig and prosthetic breasts, because then it’s wrong to wear a skirt.

A bastard child of irony and hypocrisy; that’s what you get.

If Men Wear Dresses, Will Women Become Extinct?

man wears a skirtMuch of the panic women experience when men start to wear their styles of clothing comes from a fear of being obsolete, unneeded and unprotected. For all of feminism’s bluster, most women still choose partners who are capable of protecting them when they are vulnerable. For instance, they want men who won’t hide behind them when danger is present. (Guy who once hid behind me when faced with a German Shepherd, I’m looking at you, you pathetic specimen of humanity.)

Manly Corsets For Men

male corsetThe first thing that starts to spread on men as they pass their mid twenties and head full tilt into middle age is their girth. For centuries, women strapped their waists in using corsets before realizing that they were doing it all wrong and showing their bare midriffs where ever possible, but modern women and men both face the specter of a spreading gut which threatens to ruin the lines of their stylish garments. What can be done about this?

Moderated Comments | Kristian On How Men Feel Wearing Panties and Lingerie

Another comment too good and lengthy to send into the void, but potentially too scandalous for the prudes in prudeville…

Orignally left on the hub, Men In Lingerie: The Secret Power Of Panties, Skirts, and Makeup

Kristian says:

I don’t think for most men who wear lingerie that the ‘look’ is all that important. Most men who wear lingerie do not go out dressed as women. He knows that he looks nothing like the beauty that even the average woman can look in pretty underwear. Her very female shape is enhanced by her lingerie. Very few men can be as well turned out as a woman as a well turned out woman can even in a skirt and jacket. She has ‘it’, that he doesn’t.

It is more to do with sensory effect. The ‘Feel’. I speak from my experience. I just love the soft, silky feel on my skin and the ‘tighter’ feel of panties. Stretch fabric enables comfort but still provides that tighter, more skin-close sensation. And retro ‘granny’ panties, the full cut nylon-type kind, have a wonderful feel on a gentleman’s manly parts.

I like the ‘look’ of the underwear itself. The lace, the sheen. I even wear a bra sometimes because of its sheer prettiness. My slips are beautiful garments as well as so comfortable. So much so that I wear a medium length slip under my ‘men’s day clothes’ most of the time. I like to know that I have a lacy edge around the hem. I like the feel of a tailored bust-line.

I like stockings. Not tights (pantihose). I like the feel of suspenders (garters) ‘tugging’. I can feel the difference of my trousers against tha small strip of thigh at the top of my stockings and the ‘slide’ of the trousers over the nylon of on my legs.

Not all chaps can ‘look’ girlish in their features, even with cosmetics. Some of us know full well we look silly pretending to be female. But the ‘Feel’ is what I like.
