This is a question and point of contention for men who like to wear lingerie, their partners and other people who have a passing interest in the topic. I myself often argue that panties are panties are panties, regardless of who is wearing them. However in reality, there is a difference between ‘men’s panties’ and ‘women’s panties’, if only because ‘women’s panties’ tend to be fairly high quality garments made by multinational corporations and modeled by lanky Brazilian lasses with more money than sense, whereas ‘men’s panties’ tend to be produced by smaller companies that cater to a very different aesthetic.
Satin is a fabric held dear to men who wear lingerie, or rather, if I am to be accurate, it is a style of fabric that entrances lingerie aficionados of all genders. Satin, one might say, is the most important fabric in all the kingdom of lingerie, if we are to view lingerie as a kingdom, which I think we should, as it accords the subject a certain gravitas that is often otherwise missing.When it comes to purchasing a pair of satin panties that will serve one well, it pays to understand the nature of satin. Satin has many secrets beneath its lustrous shine, and if you wish to tame it, you must first come to understand the silken beast.
Today I’m going to take some time to talk about Hanky Panky animal print panties just because they’ve put such a solid and sincere effort into making their animal print lingerie interesting of late. It seriously is seriously interesting, and they already have a reputation for producing highly comfortable lingerie that women love, so why not trust them that little bit further when they tell you that animal skins are in right now?
I was looking for something a little different when I stumbled across these pretty thong panties. Specifically, I was looking for something in black that didn’t simply make the body of the wearer disappear. Fashion gurus often state that black is slimming, and it is, it is slimming because it oftentimes acts as a black hole, sucking in the form and figure of the wearer. These panties however, allow the wearer’s figure to flaunt itself whilst providing modest and pretty coverage.

Thanks to all those of you who contribute suggestions and tips, this is a lovely tip I received from Erica, who found this adorable pair of rumba boyshort panties made by Lane Bryant, which is, in case you didn’t know, a great place to buy lingerie in the plus sizes, and therefore a great place for men to buy lingerie as men tend to be larger than ladies
Yellow, a bright color that lifts the spirits and brings joy to those that look upon it. For a mysterious reason best known to the gods of lingerie marketing, yellow lingerie is a relative rarity. Oh there’s plenty of black and white and beige stuff out there, and if you like blue and pink you’re not likely to be disappointed, but yellow bursts forth but rarely on the lingerie racks of the world and perhaps it is time that changed. In spite of its endangered status on the lingerie list, there are some brilliant yellow panty gems out there just waiting to be discovered and I have taken it upon myself to deliver them unto you for your perusal.

Kittens are hard to beat in the cute stakes, what with their tiny mewling cries, their impossibly soft fur, their tiny little kitten heads with their milky glazed kitten eyes and their unsteady gaits. It is therefore a noble goal for lingerie to aspire to kitten cuteness.

Today’s panty pick was chosen because of its sweet feminine colors and the lovely lace work that traverses the low cut balconette bra. Diesel is a fashion brand with its fingers in many pies, but it takes its lingerie as seriously as it takes any other fashion items. I love the mix of classic and contemporary styling in this satin bra, that takes a modern pink shine and compliments it beautifully with aboreal lace styling on the cups that makes the lace look rather organic. It’s a nice change from the standard purely floral patterns one is often left with.
The brassiere is matched with a pair of low cut panties with a lovely black lace band defining the waist. Underneath the thick lace, one is caressed with a satin panty panel. But the real treat of these panties comes at the rear, where the lace trim continues to scallop over the panty edges, and a large expanse of sweet pink satin covers the derriere.

Have you ever been caught between a desire for modesty and a desire for your clothing to effectively cover very little of your body? Have you ever wondered what it might be like if your panties got married? Have you ever gazed up at the moon and wondered why no underwear that gives the impression that the wearer has a fine, gauzy tail exists yet? If you said yes to any of the above, then I am about to change your life.
As you probably know by now, my usual subjects are lingerie for men, and typically I smush the the ‘women’s lingerie’ label into a metaphorical blender to make it apply to men as well, because it does really. However occasionally a piece of underwear designed for men comes along that is so incredibly awesome that I must take my hat off (I always wear a top hat to be prepared for such situations) and applaud underwear manufacturers who have taken the time to take men’s underwear to the next level, and by next level, I mean something other than boxy and black.

As a panty scientist (with a white coat), I study panties day in day out. Some people say that’s strange. I say it’s a valuable use of oxygen and carbon atoms.
Stephen Hawking and other scientists with actual science degrees and their own chemistry sets say that the universe tends to chaos under the forces of entropy. My expert panty studies have revealed a similar truth in panties, however instead of tending towards chaos, it is clear that panties are tending towards nothingness. Indeed, I hypothesize that somewhere in the fashion universe there is a lingerie black hole steadily drawing panties towards it.
