As you’ll know if you frequent these pages, I write a lot of different kinds of articles around the issue of men wearing lingerie and cross dressing in general. But I want to know something, what sort of articles do you really come here to see? Do you enjoy a mixed bag? Or are you really only looking for one style of article?

I have a confession to make. The sarong isn’t even really technically a dress. It’s probably more of a skirt, but it’s not really a skirt either. It’s more just a big piece of fabric that you wrap around yourself, kind of like a toga, but with fewer ancient Roman connections. Sarongs are popular among women and islander men because they are incredibly kick ass comfortable in a tropical environment and they don’t require the co-operation of a factory full of children in China or Taiwan to manufacture.
Observe the sweetness of the sarong…
Sometimes a bra is not enough. You want more than a bra, but less than a full blown camisole. You want to experience the greatest amount of concentrated lingerie in the smallest space possible. You want to be banded about the chest, held firm by lingerie which both supports you and makes you look amazing. You though that it couldn’t be done, but you hadn’t met a camisole bra yet.
Lace camisoles aren’t just pretty pieces of lingerie, they are excellent additions to the wardrobe of any man who loves lingerie. Why? Because they not only allow him to enjoy the soft feeling of lace, but they also lend themselves to going out into the world wearing womens clothing.
Gorgeous nylon lace creations await you….
This is exciting news! From this month onwards, readers of He Wears Panties will occasionally be able to find a column by Hope Alexander on TG LIFE. (You love it when I talk self referentially in the third person, don’t you. You do. Yes you do! ) What is TG LIFE? It’s an exciting venture headed by Gina Lance, author of Get Dressed! Breaking Out of the Crossdressing Closet. Gina Lance is famous, having appeared on MSNBC, MTV, HBO, NBC, E Channel and even Fox amongst other illustrious places. It’s an exciting time for He Wears Panties, and for Hope. Hope is totally stoked about this.
(This month’s column has already appeared on He Wears Panties, but future columns promise to be fresh and entirely unique to TG LIFE, and I believe them.)
Gender is important to our monkey brains. It’s one of the first things we determine about any new human coming into this world and it dictates our lives from that moment onwards both genetically and socially. In modern culture, we approach gender as being a dichotomy. One is either male, or female. Although nature itself boldly defies this rule by producing children with male and female organs, as a society we have equally boldly ignored this hint and dismissed these children as anomalies to the ‘proper’ way of being, and in doing so have missed the hint which nature is dropping here.
Victoria’s Secret are running a competition called “Body By Victoria.” Entrants submit a picture (or pictures of themselves,) and say why they love their body. Winners are flown to NYC with a friend and get to enjoy a $500 shopping spree at the flagship Victoria’s Secret store, amongst other things.
Jared loves his body, so Jared entered. At the time of writing, Jared was #1….
There are two types of stockings in the world. Stockings which are elasticated to stay up, and stockings which will fall down without so much as a ‘by your leave’. Stockings falling into the second category will require a sturdy garter belt to keep them up and away from your knees.
Does every man wearing a dress want to be a woman? No. Does every man who yearns for panties also harbor a secret desire to slip into a long evening gown, wig, high heels and gloves and call himself Contessa Stacy? No. Sometimes a man just wants to wear a dress. No more and no less.
You know, for most of us wandering about the planet, there’s never been a time in our lives when we didn’t see women running around in jeans, in shorts, in harem pants. We were born into a world of equality for women. We had stickers in our rooms which said ‘Girls Can Do Anything.’ We were told that yes, we could be lawyers, bankers, surgeons, CEO’s, world leaders and we watched women be all these things and more.
I don’t think it ever crossed many of our minds that men don’t have the same rights as women. Whilst we women have claimed the world for our own, men still reside largely in the areas they always resided in. This is especially obvious and especially true when it comes to fashion.
What, pray tell, is a girdle? Why, it is a relatively old fashioned piece of lingerie and the evolutionary child of the corset. Put simply, a girdle is a piece of shape defining lingerie which runs from under the bust to over the hip. It promotes a lovely feminine shape and irons out any unseemly bumps of flesh which can get in the way of attaining the perfect hour glass figure.
There’s an ongoing debate between the men who like to wear ‘womens’ clothing and the women who say that such behavior is utterly unacceptable. The strongest argument I have encountered on the side of women who believe that men shouldn’t be able to wear women’s clothing is the argument that it simply isn’t attractive.
