Yes, I’ve been on a bit of a ruffle quest. It’s like a vision quest but nobody makes you vomit in a desert. The ‘peek a boo’ in the Peek A Boo Ruffle Panty and Bra Set name refers to the fact that one’s nipples will be exposed when one is wearing this sleepwear set. Yes. It’s a sleepwear set. Can you believe it? I can, but only barely. The model is wearing nipple covers, you know, for modesty. Because nothing says modesty like flesh colored nipple stickers. I’m pretty sure the reason that this is regarded as being a sleepwear set is the fact that the bra offers less than no support, which may not may not matter depending on your particular anatomical configuration.
Ruffles are a fun and playful way to express a feminine side whilst wearing panties. These contrast ruffle panties from Leg Avenue happen to currently be #19 in the Exotic Apparel > Women’s Panties section on Amazon.com, and can thousands of exotically minded panty purchasers be wrong? I don’t think so.
These are not panties you’d be advised to wear in panty sensitive situations of course. The VPL (visible panty line) in these things is likely to be quite considerable. But for discrete home wear, or the man who just doesn’t give a damn who knows about his panties, they are a pure delight.
Continuing on the plus size theme are these absolutely adorable, and may I say, ever so Moulin Rouge panties named ‘Floral Waltz’ by their creators, Alegro. I fell in love the moment I saw these, mostly because I love red on black and lace covered burgundy triggers that wonderful association in my brain. They’re a thong cut too, which I know a great many of you men who wear lingerie love. I’ve always found that a thong is one step up from being chased around by someone trying to atomic wedgie me all day, but if you like thongs, then may you have all the thongs you dream of. Including this one.
Oh, and there’s also this matching bra, which is equally adorable and everyone knows that not getting the bra of a bra and panty set is pretty much akin to separating two kittens abandoned together at the side of the road who have bonded together against the world. The 3/4 cup coverage of this bra means that it won’t ride up too high on a male chest, but instead will sit low, possibly teasing you with a wardrobe malfunction.
There’s a heck of a mouthful in the title there, but no more words than these panties deserve I’d say. The great news is that they come in plus sizes, so men who are a little larger than the average lady are able to get them in sizes that are both comfortable and flattering. These ‘Parfait Honey’ panties are yummy enough to eat, with charming mesh lace panels that take up a great deal of the panty surface, framing a flattering small triangle of silky black fabric in the center. Although now I think about it, I wonder if there was some sort of subconscious association going on when they gave panties designed for plus size people the same name as two delightful sugary foods.
This is a platform that might not get a politician elected, but it is an indubitable fact that just like every woman is worth it, every man deserves pink cellulose panties. If you can untangle that logic, you get a special prize: disillusionment and probably an existential crisis.
On a more upbeat note, pink panties for men!
Today I’m featuring this pair of pink hipster panties, which probably refers to the cut of the panties, but instead I’m going to go ahead and imagine that it refers to a group of men who were wearing panties before it was cool to wear panties. The little snaps along the crotch line of these put me somewhat in mind of a diaper, but hey, you can’t have everything. It’s a scientific impossibility. These panties are made of 70% modal, which is spun cellulose fiber, which is just downright innovative. They’re also on final closeout. So hurry. Or don’t. It’s up to you.
Some men wear lingerie because it feels good, some wear lingerie because they love how feminine it makes them feel. These booty padding panties from SPANX add rounded, feminine shape to one’s bottom, provide a little lift in the rear end, store a little junk in the proverbial trunk. You get the idea. Now of course, they’re not exactly pretty and lacy and all the rest of it, but they are women’s underwear and if that’s good enough for women, then why wouldn’t it be enough for you hmmm? Hmmm?
Also, from EBay, some completely unrelated Booty Pop panties, which do the same thing, but they do it with lace and shine, ma cherie, with lace and shine.
It’s going to be Halloween in a month or so, and these Hanky Panky panties are a must have for any naughty lingerie outfit. I squealed slightly when I saw them because not only are they cute and lacy (two of my core criteria when it comes to choosing panties) but they’re a little bit dark and deviant and naughty too – all without being outright filthy. If these panties were in a show, it would be a tasteful burlesque show. The only potential downside of these panties is that resistance to ‘builder’s crack’ is futile. Of course, when it’s surrounded by lace, a little cheek cleavage can be a fine thing indeed.
I’m always on the lookout for innovative panty styles, and I think it’s safe to say I’ve found one here with the Blush Starlet Lace Trimmed Bikini Panty. The luscious satin panty comes in red or blue and provides full rear coverage, good news for those of you who like to cover your rear. What really sets these apart from other panties is the lace trim which puts me in mind of a little lace skirt after the 1920’s flapper styles. This is one of those panties guaranteed to make you feel delightfully feminine when you wear it. It also comes with a matching plunge style brassiere (perfect for wearing undetected under everyday clothing.)
A few months ago, I made a decision after some consultation with members of the He Wears Panties forum to remove the picture and adult sections from the forum. This came as a surprise to some, although I did post a thread about the matter, not everyone reads every thread ever posted and as it was posted in the general section. It felt a wee bit heavy handed and dictatorial at the time, but nobody came for me and my shiny gold hat and pistols, so that was okay.
I made the change not because I have any real objection to discussions of a more adult nature or pictures of men wearing lingerie but because the tone of the discourse that ensued in these areas of the forum didn’t mesh well with the overall aim of the site.
There was a significant traffic dip after the removal of those sub-forums which I figured would happen, but it did not overly concern me because frankly, this site isn’t about masses of traffic. It’s about supporting men who want to make fashion choices that deviate from the sometimes viciously enforced gender norms.
Since that time, I’ve been really encouraged by how gracefully everyone has gone with the change and how vigorous and interesting the discussion is in the forums. They’re a very positive place to be and though I don’t overtly poke my nose in too often (not wanting to break the flow and whatnot) I do keep an eye on the place and I’m very happy with what I see there. There’s some great practical advice for men who wear and purchase lingerie and a lot of camaraderie and emotional support as well. All this was there before the picture and adult sections were removed of course, but I think by removing them the site has really found a nice focus.
There’s always been two sides to this pretty coin of men wearing women’s clothing. One one side there’s a sort of progressive, egalitarian, almost human rights based approach to the issue, and on the other, the more carnal approach we’re all more than familiar with I would imagine. I think the fetish aspect of the issue is covered at length already in a number of venues, but He Wears Panties has something unique to offer above and beyond that.

I am a 36 year old straight man that enjoys wearing panties. A little of my background: I doubt that anyone could call into question my masculinity. I had a career in the Army with three combat tours, led convoys around Baghdad, always scored highly on my physical fitness tests, and was in charge of my own platoon. I rose up through the ranks quite quickly, serving in many leadership position. I am also married and the father of two boys that are as into sports as I am.
Nothing about me looks or seems feminine, but just like others that have posted here, I had been frustrated with limited options of what was being sold/marketed for men to wear. I hate boxers in that I want support for my parts, and just can’t stand the look and feel of tighty-whities. I hate the feel of the rough cotton that we are limited to. Not only that, but there is no variety whatsoever in men’s underwear. After looking and looking, I was able to find some underwear made by Marona that was a micro-fiber type material. I started wearing those, but was still limited to black, white, and dark blue…that’s it. Let’s see, what should I wear today? Oooohhh, I get to choose from three. :( Kind of like when I was in the military: What should I wear today? How about green!
I discovered panties quite a few years ago when my wife as a joke, dared me to wear a pair of hers. I was hooked. They felt good, they supported me well, and I must admit, I got turned on as well. Throughout the years, she has gone back and forth on if she likes it or not. For a while we even shopped for panties together for me, and allowed me to wear them to bed along with a nightgown. Interesting, she “allowed” me, since when should me have to be “allowed” to do something? However, she is now totally against it, she does not like any bit of it even though I wish I could wear them 24/7. I have to actually hide the fact that I wear them, which I hate having to lie to her. BTW, if there are any women reading this that refuse to let your husband wear panties and lingerie, you are only forcing them to lie to you.
Not only do I love the feel and look of panties, but being the military had made me aggressive, combative, and assertive. Sometimes this is good, sometimes not. Wearing panties under my uniform was a good way of calming me down. At one point in the military, I almost had a breakdown where all the expectations of my family, my soldiers, and society got to be too much. I felt that I was carrying the burden of our nation on my shoulders, and along with that, my family. When people see a soldier they expect them to be the protector, the one to fight for the nation, a perfect example of manliness. Society does not allow a male soldier to show feeling, any kind of softness, or any type of weakness. That is a lot to carry on your shoulders. I don’t know when, but I started wearing panties once again under my uniform, and every once in a while, a bra or camisole. With our uniform tops, it was easy to hide. I didn’t wear a bra or camisole while deployed, but still wore panties.
A curious thing started happening. My soldiers told me that I was more approachable, my leadership style was more fair and balanced, and that I was able to listen and understand their problems that they brought to me better. The stress started melting away and I was able to function better. I became a better father and husband. So even though I love wearing panties due to the variety, feel, and the overall sexiness of it, there are some great side effects from wearing panties!
For men who are commanded by panties comes the commando lace low rise thong, an incredibly sexy, nigh undetectable pair of panties that not only make themselves scarce, but look sexy doing it. The pair you’re viewing are the Grey Leopard Commando panties, however these panties also come in a range of basic colors, in which the lace is dyed to match, so as to keep itself a secret. In addition to the Grey Leopard, you can also wear the Brown Leopard, which also comes with black lace.
But colors are incidental to the true genius of these panties, what really makes these panties special is the raw cut technology that means no panty lines and no muffin tops. These panties will not define your body by cutting into any fat reserves you might have, they will conform to it in the most pleasant way possible.
The Leopard Commando Lace Low Rise Thong. Rawr innovation.
Did you know that Vanity Fair makes a lovely bikini cut shimmering nylon panty? It’s sort of beige, but I’ve noticed that other people aren’t quite so down on beige as I am, and it does have its benefits in the stealth department. These panties will sit comfortably below your pants line and even if they do peek up a little (perhaps during mandatory manly under sink inspections) then you may get away with them anyway. Of course, the pretty shimmery shine is sure to be eye catching, so avoid flashing them under bright lights if you’re not quite ready to be a beacon of panty excellence.
These panties are part of the ‘body caress’ series, so they’re guaranteed to feel silky smooth against your skin, an important factor to consider when purchasing any panties.
My ‘ end’ verdict: These are sort of the ugly duckling of lingerie. They don’t look like much at first, but once you roast them over some buns, they’re incredibly tasty.
