Glad to have you, PCW. I can't speak to the aspect of dealing with this as a couple, since until a year ago I only wore occasionally, and almost always only at home, very rarely in public. Since then I haven't had a serious relationship, so it hasn't come up.

As far as the lingerie for men, there's pros and cons. For me, it does tend to fit better than a lot of the women's items, simply because it's designed for a man. On the other side, the selection of materials and designs is very low, because the market is so small. I have a few of the lace briefs from xdress.com that hold everything in, but the material is kind of scratchy. The other con, that others have mentioned, is the price.

I think once he looks around, both in women's and men's, he'll find what works for him. It's kind of a trial and error thing.

I just keep resurrecting this post. LOL. I love the idea of trying in the dark first, I think that's great advice. We still haven't crossed that bridge yet - he is very apprehensive and pairing that with my own uncertainty, it's not really moving things along. I've done some "research" if one would call it that but I think the real struggle here is him accepting himself for who he is. I don't know how to help him do that. I've offered my support and unconditional love... And I mean that, I promise it regardless of how I feel when we finally do break into this together. We'll figure it out. He is in every way my soulmate and panties, lingerie, and stockings are not going to change that! I've told him that but he's still just... I don't know how to explain it. I don't want to pressure him and freak him out more than he already is so I've laid off... we do talk about it and make up fantasies together, we've even texted them all throughout our work days... I just don't know if he's ever gonna be ready and sometimes I feel scared that I think I'm ready now but it'll still surprise and shock me! This is hard!

Hi! I was a little concerned we hadn't heard from you in a while. I'm glad everything is okay.

Just give him time, hon.

Perhaps, if you think you're ready, go buy him a pair of panties you think he would like. You could lay them out for him, then when he gets home from work, ask him to wear them and let you see how they fit?

I'm glad you are so supportive of him. Just keep that up and everything else will work out.

PantyCuriousWife, You just got some very good advice from Kelli! I would seriously consider it. Crissy

PantyCuriousWife, Kelli and Crissy are right. Making the panties available to him whether laying them out or giving him a little panty package or gift of them might excite him enough for him to go for it. Your continued support is certainly huge and necessary but take it easy, maybe work in some kind of romantic way may be of help. Basically try and keep it from being an embarrassing experience for him. Making it a joint panty experience could be rewarding for both.

I agree with Kalli, Crissy, and AliceJ. A candle light dinner or a a glass of wine might ease his tension some before you give him his gift. My wife and I have a candle light dinner with wine 2 or 3 times a month. I am retired and she works. It is a big reliever for her. I hope only the best for you both. I think most of us on this site will agree that he is a most fortunate man to have found such a loving, caring and understanding life partner.

Hugs,
Betty

PCW, I agree with Kelli, I was getting concern as well.
The longer this goes on the harder it will be because it is human nature to over think things. Both of you will be increasing expectations. So I think leave a pair on top of bed on his side might be a good way to break the ice.
I think you want to get it over with so you can get out of this loop and move on with your lifes.
Good luck.

Hi there PCW, firstly welcome to this wonderful place. I have tried "made for men" panties, but I'm with Crissy on this, they are often a great disappointment. They are often expensive, badly made or with inferior fabrics, and worst of all sizing is all over the place. I have never found any that really fit or are comfy. Panties made for women are far nicer, more comfortable, often fit the male body really well (that was the biggest surprise for me) and best of all there is such a wonderful (often bewildering) range of styles and types.
I hope that helps. I really admire the way you are handling this.

I will echo Panypops statements here. I once purchased a bra and panty set for the male anatomy in a size large. The panty was just OK and I don't think I've worn it more than 2 or 3 times. The bra from the set looked like it was made for Andre the Giant or maybe even Paul Bunyan. Tried it on once and then tossed it into a pile of clothing that I did not really wear. Now I have no clue where it is and I do not really care.

The "panties for men" are quite expensive as others have said, but I'm sure that Soma or Victoria's Secret has a sale going on somewhere ...

I agree with the others about the gift idea. You already know his size, so find something really pretty for him to wear. Hot tip: Bali Lace Desire panties can be found at Kohl's, and have matching bra sets. Might be something to think about .....
