When pondering the richness of lingerie, one should never forget the many silky sleepwear sets that you can wear whilst you drift of into a world of lingerie dreams. From full length nightgowns to shorter babydolls, there really is sleepwear available for every mood and season. In this article I’m featuring some of the wonderful silk chemises made by Alexander Del Rossa. Not only are they truly beautiful, I find that there is something almost architectural about them. They don’t look good by accident, they sweep and cling and enhance by design.
Classic 100% Silk Chemise Nightgown
This classic nightgown (pictured at the outset of the article) is all about the bosom, and even if you’re not naturally endowed with one, you’ll find that the *ahem* engineering of this item makes the most of whatever you have, even if it’s Schwarzenegger style pecs.
Classic 100% Silk Chemise Nightgown with Chiffon Trim
The chiffon trim does make this nightgown look a little dress like, but it does so in a stylish 1920’s flapper style sort of way that I find hard to resist.
Classic 100% Silk Chemise Nightgown with Lace Trim
Last, but certainly not least, a lace trim nightgown that’s a little playful and a little naughty. The sheerness of the lace makes the gown a little shorter (well, the part that covers your body from prying eyes anyway.)
Long 100% Silk Chemise Nightgown with Lace and Chiffon Accents
Did I say the lace trim nightgown was the last? I couldn’t leave this article without at least mentioning the wonderful, almost flamenco inspired long chiffon iteration of the Alexander Del Rossa nightgown. If you’re looking for something rega, and sweeping, this might just be the nightgown for you.

It’s been some time since my last update and I do apologize for that. Life got busy in non-panty related ways, as it is sometimes wont to do. Still, there are plenty of panties I’ve been meaning to talk about so I think I’ll do a bit of a bumper panty special today. And when I say bumper special, I mean three pairs of panties that caught my eye amidst the many panties out in the world. Did you know that there are more variations on the panty than there are species of beetle. (That’s probably not true, but it’s an ever increasing close call.)
Crotchless Cutie Bootie Short Panties
These panties play both into my love for lace and my love for sweet alliteration. At first sight they look just like cute boy short lace panties, but spread your legs and there’s a further surprise waiting. Crotchless panties might not be the first choice of panty for the man who wears lingerie for the sensation, but they do have a certain naughty femininity that can probably be appreciated by almost anyone who loves their lower body teased by lingerie.

Valmont Lace and Satin Hi-Cut Panties
I love the name of these panties almost as much as I love the panties themselves. There’s something oh so classic and classy about it, like a well engineered luxury sedan a queen might ride in to escape the rabble. These panties certainly are luxurious being made out of a satin weave fabric which rises proudly up the front center panel like a glorious fountain of soft sensation. It is flanked by two delicate lace panels. Lovely. So, so lovely.

Hipster Lace Panties
These panties are mostly lace and the waistband of these panties is 100% lace and if you do the math on that you get 2 to the power of oh my god its pretty much all lace! With no side seams whatsoever, these suit the lingerie lover who likes to run his hands over what feels like a never ending lane of lace encircling his hips.

Ah, hi-cut panties, panties that give your upper thighs plenty of space for activities, but also provide wonderful coverage fore and aft. (Those are mariners terms of course, which is very appropriate given that mariners love a good pair of panties to keep themselves well supported on the high seas.
These ‘Helenca’ high cut panties from Vanity Fair are absolutely adorable. They’re 100% lace, with no sign of a solid panel anywhere – aside from the crotch, which usually has a cotton panel to mop up anything untoward that might result from the aforementioned activities.

I’ve always said that the camisole is one of the most potentially satisfying pieces of lingerie. A good camisole has all the sweet femininity of a bra and panty set, and the soft touch of a satiny pair of panties, but instead of being confined to rather specific parts of your anatomy, the feeling can be enjoyed across the entire torso. I’m featuring two delightful camisoles today, both from well known and proven brands.
The Vanity Fair Satin Glance Camisole is quite a simple piece of lingerie and you might even be able to get away with wearing it under every day attire. There is a little bit of scalloped lace trim, but the real draw of this camisole is the smooth nylon fabric that clings to the body and provides a pleasantly slipping surface against which your outer clothing will move. Putting on a camisole like this is one of the best ways to turn a mundane day into a sensual experience.
Next on my list is the Maidenform All Lace Camisole. This gorgeous camisole will cover you in lace from neck to hip. Reviews indicate that this lace camisole is made of a lace so soft that it feels rather like buttery pantyhose against one’s skin. This is the sort of treat that will not only feel amazing, but look quite stunning too!
If you’re going to buy panties from anyone, it may as well be from someone who named their line of lingerie ‘Lipo in a Box’. These lace trimmed, full brief panties come in a variety of patterns and colors, blasting old assumptions about the proper shades of lingerie out of the water. There’s the candy pink panties and a whole range of alternative styles, some with animal prints, some with floral prints, some with a restrained black satin finish. Oh, and for those of you who enjoy wearing brassieres, all of these innovative panties come with matching brassieres.
There were two particular styles that stood out to me, codenamed ‘Rachel’ and ‘Tiffany’. I do adore it when people give items of lingerie women’s names. It’s very fractal in a way, as in ‘I put a woman’s name on your women’s panties so you can…. I don’t know… wear women’s panties with a woman’s name.’

Skimpy little bikini cut panties and thongs are all very well and good, but sometimes a man who wears lingerie wants to feel a little more covered than that. Sometimes smooth fabric from lower back to belly button is the panacea for that which ails one.
Bali Lacy Skamp Hikini Panties
These panties combine coverage with a bikini cut to create a new panty entity known as a ‘Hikini’. The thick lace waistband will appease your ravenous desire for all things soft and pretty and the panties themselves are made from 80% nylon for a wonderfully smooth sensation against the skin. Note that many of the positive reviews for these panties have been left by men! They’re currently on special at the great price of 3 for $24 or you can buy them for $9 each. They come in white, beige (they’re calling it ‘mocha mist’ but you can’t fool me with fancy alliteration) and black

Lace panties are some of the most popular panty styles amongst all lingerie demographics, and for good reason. Lace looks amazing, is entirely feminine and also has a naughty little side effect of making your undergarments somewhat see through whilst still seeming to be refined and classy.
Hanky Panky make one of the top lines of women’s lace panties, their secret is in the materials they use in the lace which result in a butter smooth sensation against the sensitive skin of one’s nether regions. Cheap lace panties can be scratchy and ill-fitting, but Hanky Panky has managed to make quality their watchword and in doing so, captured much of the lace panty market.
But Hanky Panky lace panties are not your only option. Here are a few more from other manufacturers of lovely lacy lingerie…
These low rise boxers from 007 Lingerie are technically just lace trimmed panties, but I’m really not sure that matters given that a significant portion of the panties are ‘trim’ anyway. What’s really stunning about these lacy panties is the plethora of designs associated with them. I very much enjoy the wonderful sort of lace doily approach taken on the featured panties. (And no I’m not being sarcastic, I like it when a panty is allowed to be innovative and different.)
007 Lace Panties
And of course, absolutely no article on lace panties would be complete without a reference to Vanity Fair lace panties, which, unlike all the other panties featured here are high cut and entirely lace from top to bottom. I know from experience that these are very popular panties with men who like to wear lace and moreover, like superior lace coverage.

Petticoats are a form of lingerie, albeit not one that is often mentioned in these modern times of thongs and visible panty lines. Indeed, the modest petticoat has in many respects gone the way of the steam engine and polio. However it is still possible to buy adorable petticoats from Leg Avenue, fluffy, frilly, lace filled garments swirling about your upper thighs. They’re as dramatic as they are feminine, and if you’re looking for something new to adorn yourself with, they might be just the ticket. I’m featuring a range of Leg Avenue petticoats today, from naughty little short petticoats that barely cover one’s derriere, to romantic knee length garments. The links below correspond to the petticoats shown above reading from left to right (and top to bottom for the middle two.)

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.

There’s been quite a lot of discussion over on the board of late about being in a relationship and wearing panties. Some men have partners who understand and embrace their boyfriend or husband’s love for lingerie, others have partners who are less enthusiastic but accept it (or don’t) and other men hide it completely either for fear of being found out or because their SO has already foamed at the mouth at the very idea and they value their relationship more than they do being able to openly wear lingerie.
They say that women are the great romantics, but what I see in a lot of reports from men is that it is the men who seem to be genuinely concerned about the state and well-being of their relationships and their partner’s happiness, whereas the women are often concerned more with the serving of their own illusions and the using of sex and sexuality as a bargaining chip. Obviously this doesn’t apply to all women. There are plenty of women who understand that there are worse things in the world than wanting to wear panties, but those ones aren’t the ones involved in sometimes extremely vicious emotional and mental attacks on their partners when it comes to shaming them for wanting to wear lingerie.
You see, there is a potential downside to sharing the fact that you wear lingerie, and it’s not that your partner will up and leave you that instant. It’s that they will accept it, or feign acceptance and then later on turn around and abuse you for it, and often it seems, threaten to ‘out’ you to family and friends.
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.
