In which one man finds a way to wear lingerie against the odds…
For years, Mortimer had dreamed of wearing women’s lingerie. Unfortunately, his wife Deirdre was less than supportive of the whole idea. Less than supportive was a bit of an understatement really, she was vigorously anti the idea of him owning anything remotely shiny or satiny or soft and she seemed to have a nose for any lingerie he would buy and secrete about the house.
Pantyhose is hosiery which covers from toe to hip. But do we really know pantyhose all that well? After all, pantyhose, the favorite hosiery of many men who wear lingerie, is an odd little minx. For reasons which may not seem immediately clear to the uninitiated, or women and girls who used to have to wear it to work or school, there are those who absolutely love pantyhose with a passion that means if there was a house fire they would rush out of the house, their hair ablaze, soot staining their cheeks, hosiery drawer cradled delicately in their arms.
Wearing lingerie can be a lot of fun and a source of joy and solace in a man’s life. However, coming to the place where wanting to wear lingerie is something you can accept about yourself can be difficult. I know and am sympathetic to the fact that not all men who wear lingerie are at the “Oh my! Look at me in my fabulous panties!” stage just yet.
Here are some tips just for you guys, I hope they prove useful in your lingerie journeys and dreams.
I thought it might be of interest to the male panty wearing crowd to get an insight as to how women pick their panties, and for women to perhaps find some inspiration in future panty purchases. Most women have three types of panties in their panty drawer, though there may be a crossover between the types and it is quite common for panties to transition from one category to another over the course of their life times.
As you’ll be aware, I recently opened a forum here on He Wears Panties so that you guys could have your say and talk with one another, which is really important.
As you’re also no doubt aware, there has been a lingerie gallery on the site which you could submit to. I’m going to close the avenue of submissions via email as you can now all post your pictures on the He Wears Panties Picture Forum
This means no waiting around for me to sort myself out and post pictures.
I may still add some pictures from the forum to the gallery from time to time, but that will be done at my discretion, (read: when I get some time :).)
I’m really pleased with how the forums are going, and I hope you all are too. Don’t be afraid to get out there and start chatting!
Also, everyone who posts pictures will be awarded a special profile panty badge.

Over the years many people have asked me about my first times out of the house, dressed! I always say that I was terrified, exhilarated, scared to death, thrilled and I experienced more emotions in those few short hours combined than I had ever faced in my life!
Are you a man who loves the feeling of stockings or pantyhose against your skin? Do you joyously wear hosiery in private only to have to take it off when you leave your home? Have you ever wondered how to openly wear women’s stockings and pantyhose in the workplace without being sniggered at by the receptionist and being sent home in shame to change? One man has tackled this fashion problem and emerged triumphant and it is my pleasure to share his not so secrets with you.
Silk. We don’t have enough of it.
Why wear silk lingerie? Well, much like my arch nemesis, cotton, silk is a natural fiber. However, unlike cotton, it is so smooth to the touch that the term “silky smooth” is actually in common usage. Okay “cotton soft” is also out there, but that’s just an international conspiracy up there with UFO’s, the sniper on the grassy knoll, and Sarah Palin’s VP nomination. Some things we will never understand.
Foundation is the perfect make up for men, and it is the ‘base coat’ upon which the rest of your make up (should you choose to wear any) sits. There is a certain science to wearing foundation, these tips and hints should help you along the way to a lovely smooth, clean appearance.
Once upon a time, in a land not very far away at all, men and women both used to wear make up. Wearing make up was considered to be a mark of refinement and good breeding. It showed that one cared enough about the people around one to impress them with a nicely painted face.
Make up for men, and who is wearing it….
I recently received a question on the He Wears Panties forum regarding comfortable bras for men. As the reader noted, men tend to perspire more than women, and combined with snug synthetic fabric many pretty womens bras are made from, this is a recipe for discomfort and even rashes.
Well, there is a solution to this problem, and this is the cotton bra.
