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.

All of them are effective and all of them are entirely hormone and chemical free because I can’t imagine a worse idea than pumping your body full of rubbish not ‘native’ to it in order to make it look a certain way.

How Much Lace Is Too Much Lace?

too much laceAt one time, I would have naively thought that one could never have too much lace. In fact, you can probably find multiple articles where I have expressed that very sentiment if you look around a bit. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Very wrong. There is such a thing as too much lace, and it took one of my favorite singers and fashionistas to bring the point home.

The Tale of Spider Silk Lingerie

beautiful nylon camisoleIn which one man finds a way to wear lingerie against the odds…

For years, Mortimer had dreamed of wearing women’s lingerie. Unfortunately, his wife Deirdre was less than supportive of the whole idea. Less than supportive was a bit of an understatement really, she was vigorously anti the idea of him owning anything remotely shiny or satiny or soft and she seemed to have a nose for any lingerie he would buy and secrete about the house.

Pantyhose For Men

wolfordPantyhose is hosiery which covers from toe to hip. But do we really know pantyhose all that well? After all, pantyhose, the favorite hosiery of many men who wear lingerie, is an odd little minx. For reasons which may not seem immediately clear to the uninitiated, or women and girls who used to have to wear it to work or school, there are those who absolutely love pantyhose with a passion that means if there was a house fire they would rush out of the house, their hair ablaze, soot staining their cheeks, hosiery drawer cradled delicately in their arms.

How Women Pick Their Panties

sexy_pantiesI thought it might be of interest to the male panty wearing crowd to get an insight as to how women pick their panties, and for women to perhaps find some inspiration in future panty purchases. Most women have three types of panties in their panty drawer, though there may be a crossover between the types and it is quite common for panties to transition from one category to another over the course of their life times.

Reader’s Lingerie Pictures

As you’ll be aware, I recently opened a forum here on He Wears Panties so that you guys could have your say and talk with one another, which is really important.

As you’re also no doubt aware, there has been a lingerie gallery on the site which you could submit to. I’m going to close the avenue of submissions via email as you can now all post your pictures on the He Wears Panties Picture Forum

This means no waiting around for me to sort myself out and post pictures.

I may still add some pictures from the forum to the gallery from time to time, but that will be done at my discretion, (read: when I get some time :).)

I’m really pleased with how the forums are going, and I hope you all are too. Don’t be afraid to get out there and start chatting!

Also, everyone who  posts pictures will be awarded a special profile panty badge.

The Splendid World of Silk Lingerie

silk negligeeSilk. We don’t have enough of it.

Why wear silk lingerie? Well, much like my arch nemesis, cotton, silk is a natural fiber. However, unlike cotton, it is so smooth to the touch that the term “silky smooth” is actually in common usage. Okay “cotton soft” is also out there, but that’s just an international conspiracy up there with UFO’s, the sniper on the grassy knoll, and Sarah Palin’s VP nomination. Some things we will never understand.
