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.

You tell me…

As you’ll know if you frequent these pages, I write a lot of different kinds of articles around the issue of men wearing lingerie and cross dressing in general. But I want to know something, what sort of articles do you really come here to see? Do you enjoy a mixed bag? Or are you really only looking for one style of article?

Feminine Sarong Dresses For Men

fake sarong dressI have a confession to make. The sarong isn’t even really technically a dress. It’s probably more of a skirt, but it’s not really a skirt either. It’s more just a big piece of fabric that you wrap around yourself, kind of like a toga, but with fewer ancient Roman connections. Sarongs are popular among women and islander men because they are incredibly kick ass comfortable in a tropical environment and they don’t require the co-operation of a factory full of children in China or Taiwan to manufacture.

Observe the sweetness of the sarong…

Sneaky, Sexy, Show – Off Lingerie! Camisole Bras

comfort choiceSometimes a bra is not enough. You want more than a bra, but less than a full blown camisole. You want to experience the greatest amount of concentrated lingerie in the smallest space possible. You want to be banded about the chest, held firm by lingerie which both supports you and makes you look amazing. You though that it couldn’t be done, but you hadn’t met a camisole bra yet.

This is exciting news! From this month onwards, readers of He Wears Panties will occasionally be able to find a column by Hope Alexander on TG LIFE. (You love it when I talk self referentially in the third person, don’t you. You do. Yes you do! ) What is TG LIFE? It’s an exciting venture headed by Gina Lance, author of Get Dressed! Breaking Out of the Crossdressing Closet.  Gina Lance is famous, having appeared on MSNBC, MTV, HBO, NBC, E Channel and even Fox amongst other illustrious places.

(This month’s column has already appeared on He Wears Panties, but future columns promise to be fresh and entirely unique to TG LIFE, and I believe them.)

The Brain Of A Man Named Susan | The Science Behind Men In Panties

berdacheGender is important to our monkey brains. It’s one of the first things we determine about any new human coming into this world and it dictates our lives from that moment onwards both genetically and socially. In modern culture, we approach gender as being a dichotomy. One is either male, or female. Although nature itself boldly defies this rule by producing children with male and female organs, as a society we have equally boldly ignored this hint and dismissed these children as anomalies to the ‘proper’ way of being, and in doing so have missed the hint which nature is dropping here.

jared_number_oneVictoria’s Secret are running a competition called “Body By Victoria.” Entrants submit a picture (or pictures of themselves,) and say why they love their body. Winners are flown to NYC with a friend and get to enjoy a $500 shopping spree at the flagship Victoria’s Secret store, amongst other things.

Jared loves his body, so Jared entered. At the time of writing, Jared was #1….

How Women Claimed The Right To Wear Men’s Clothes (And How Men Can Do The Same)

hepburnYou know, for most of us wandering about the planet, there’s never been a time in our lives when we didn’t see women running around in jeans, in shorts, in harem pants. We were born into a world of equality for women. We had stickers in our rooms which said ‘Girls Can Do Anything.’ We were told that yes, we could be lawyers, bankers, surgeons, CEO’s, world leaders and we watched women be all these things and more.

I don’t think it ever crossed many of our minds that men don’t have the same rights as women. Whilst we women have claimed the world for our own, men still reside largely in the areas they always resided in. This is especially obvious and especially true when it comes to fashion.

Gorgeous Girlish Girdles For Men

panty girdleWhat, pray tell, is a girdle? Why, it is a relatively old fashioned piece of lingerie and the evolutionary child of the corset. Put simply, a girdle is a piece of shape defining lingerie which runs from under the bust to over the hip. It promotes a lovely feminine shape and irons out any unseemly bumps of flesh which can get in the way of attaining the perfect hour glass figure.

No Jack, You Can’t Wear Panties | The Objectification Of Men

There’s an ongoing debate between the men who like to wear ‘womens’ clothing and the women who say that such behavior is utterly unacceptable. The strongest argument I have encountered on the side of women who believe that men shouldn’t be able to wear women’s clothing is the argument that it simply isn’t attractive.

Rawr, debates!
