Hiphuggers are low cut panties that snuggle low around the hips. They’re cut quite nicely for the masculine figure and in the case of these specific panties from Leonisa, are pretty much 50% lace, which is an awful lot of lace, especially for such a small pair of panties. It isn’t lazy lace either, it serves a very noble and beautiful purpose, curving over the cheeks to frame the derriere. In some respects, these panties remind me of the older Olga type panty styles updated for a more carefree and skimpy modern wearer.
100% coverage (if by coverage we mean having panties for every day of the week, because these are thong panties and let’s face it, coverage isn’t precisely what thong panties do best.)
These thong panties come in a 3, 4, 5, 8 or 10 pack and a range of pretty prints. They have a double string design, which I’m going to pretend is based on the same theory as a safety chute. If one of your thong strings breaks, you won’t plummet into panty depression, you’ll have a backup string already deployed.
Boyshorts are a cute style that is popular with men and women alike and though these have been dubbed ‘Micro Lace’ by their makers, there’s nothing ‘micro’ about the lace in these panties, in fact their boyshort design is largely obscured by the ubiquitous lace that adorns almost every seam. I love the contrast effect created with the gray fabric and pink lace, but these panties also come in pink, burgundy and silver – quite a tantalizingly interesting range of colors.
These are some interesting garter belts. I say garter belts as if there are two of them, which there sort of are and sort of aren’t. Basically there’s just one garter belt but it comes in normal sizes and plus sizes too, so everyone can enjoy the wet look nylon coverage. There’s something a little bit Catwoman about this piece of lingerie, it’s sinuous and sensual. It might plot to overthrow a local superhero, but I think you’ll forgive it. The straps across the rear are a little bit BDSM, a little bit Rock n’ Roll, a lot awesome. This isn’t delicate or frilly, but it doesn’t have to be. This garter belt is bold and knows what it wants. It has drive, it has passion. Will it have you?
American Apparel is notorious for making clothing that doesn’t really fit the majority of women over the age of 18. They tend to design for the narrow of hips and the relatively flat of chest – which is why their bras are perfect for male wearers on the slimmer side. I call them bras and indeed, they call them bras, but they’re not really bras in the traditional sense of the word in that they don’t so much offer support as a general covering of lace.
The three bras above, in order from left to right:
And one more for luck…
The pettipant is somewhat anachronistic, but there are plenty of men who enjoy this kind of lingerie for a range of reasons. A certain old-fashioned charm is certainly one reason, add to that the unparalleled soft nylon coverage and abundance of lace and you’ve got piece of lingerie that combine comfort, sensuality and classic appeal. They’re basically the Audrey Hepburns of lingerie. As some readers might not have considered pettipants at all before this very moment, today three pettipants will enter the pettiring today and all three of them will leave because they’re all gorgeous in their own way.
We will begin our exploration of the pettipant with these relatively simple, almost boxer short appearing pettipants from Illusions. As with all pettipants, they are designed to be worn under clothing without causing clinging or catching. This means that pettipants are almost always made of high quality nylon, and always feel amazing against the skin. These particular pettipants should work well under long shorts or pants, which, for most men, means that they’ll work with their entire wardrobe. Handy!
You might notice that these pettipants from Vanity Fair are long. They’re very long in fact, over the knees, though I suppose if you happen to be a taller gentleman, your knees might still be shamefully exposed whilst wearing them. They measure up at 18 inches, which is an impressive amount of lingerie any which way you slice it. They are also 100% nylon for non-slip smooth wearing and come trimmed with pretty lace.
The pettipants from Velrose feature three tiers of lace plafully traced across the lower legs. Although you might be admiring that lace as a purely aesthetic touch, it actually serves a purpose. The three lace bands are designed so that the garment can be ‘snipped’ to the length you like it. Sort of like those velcro stripper pants, except nothing like that. Forget I said anything.
I’ve often written cotton off as a completely non-sexy fabric, but one has to admit at some point that all fabrics can be versatile and where there’s a will, there’s a way.
These panties aren’t just interesting in a ‘someone slashed these to the point where they barely cling to my frame’ sort of way, but also because they have an adjustable fit with bows in the back, which can be tied and re-tied for the perfect fit.
Ever wonder what women are buying? Here are the top three best selling panties on Amazon.com, as chosen by those who vote with their cash and leave positive reviews. What’s really nice about these three panties is that they’ve proven to be not only comfortable and aesthetically pleasing but economical too. The most expensive panties in this selection cost less than ten dollars, and the average price is closer to just two dollars. If you’re looking for some popular panty bargains, this is a post you won’t want to miss!
Vanity Fair’s string bikini panties are the bestselling panties on Amazon.com at the time of writing. These most popular panties are notable because they come single, where all the others are multiple panty packs. The string bikini comes in a variety of colors, ranging from Jane Gray pink, pictured in the image above, to blue to white to beige to Steele Violet. The strings at the sides are considered elegant by many and the rave reviews left by satisfied wearers speak for themselves.
The second best selling panties are popular because of their lace and volume. You get twelve pairs of panties in this pack, which are pretty much all the panties a man or woman could need for at least twelve days. The backside on these rides a little high, exposing one’s rear, which is fun and charming and probably a recipe for success.
It’s pretty rare that cotton gets on this site, mostly because of my perhaps over zealous personal preferences for things lacier and fancier and, well, prettier , but the masses have spoken and these are the third most popular panties. They also happen to come in a six pack, which makes them not only comfortable and popular, but entirely economical.
Skirted garters are fairly self explanatory, like many other good things in life, the clue is in the title. What I love about these most is that they combine just a little hint of a skirt with the lingerie that so many men love, so you can dabble in additional feminine attire whilst remaining firmly in your comfort zone. The garters are detachable, so if you want to wear it with panties instead of panties and stockings, you can. These particular skirted garters from Jezebel are adorable in baby pink with black floral patterning for contrast. Embroidered bows add a little texture to the affair, which is topped off with black mesh ruffles. Beautiful.
This high waisted lace thong comes from American Apparel, who are pretty much the evil master villains of the US clothing market. The thing about evil master villans however, is that they tend to do what they do very well. This thong comes in not one, not three, not six, but ten different colors from white and black to red, purple yellow and five others you can discover yourself by clicking the link. (Green and blue are probably in there, and I’m betting by the end of looking at all these panties, you’ll be able to sing a thong rainbow.)
What’s nice about the thong is that it combines the skimpy ‘no rear coverage’ thing with the ‘all the coverage’ you could want up front. It’s almost like it was designed to cover something exciting. And by exciting I mean, well, you know what I mean.
These are adorable. There’s just something about white panties that speaks to a certain innocence and purity, and in the case of these panties that ambiance is only enhanced by the lace that provides tantalizing peeks through to the skin beyond the garment. Laura White makes quite a few of these ‘see through’ panties that use laces and meshes to create barely there garments of charming femininity.
It’s not terribly often that we come across panties with their own sense of gender ambiguity, but these panties are actually called the ‘masculine – feminine’ panty. The moment I saw them I knew they belonged here.
Chantelle have this to say about their product:
The boyshort panty from this chic collection combines smooth, masculine pinstriped fabrication with alluring feminine lace.
I say, finally a pair of panties I can make a case for wearing to a business meeting!
