Lace is generally regarded as being something of a genteel fabric. Historically it was worn by the aristocratic elite, both male and female. In modern times, lace has faced something of a gender barrier, but a few brave souls still contend with these fickle morays and pursue lace with all the vigor it deserves. These men are rewarded with the many joys of wearing lace, indeed, many say that lace lingerie is lingerie you’ll never regret owning.
In spite of the fact that I’ve been writing these articles for a couple of years now, and in spite of the fact that if you, you know, actually read any of them, you’ll get a good sense of what they are about, some people still come up with the most dense questions possible and still ask, after having read an article which explains why men wear lingerie, ‘Why do men wear lingerie?’ I imagine they do this with a cow like bewilderment, no doubt chewing their cud thoughtfully with the effort of trying to understand someone other than themselves.
Lingerie brings joy to the world not just because it is functional (which it is,) but because it adds pretty ornamentation to the mundane and the everyday. Lingerie, is at its heart, pure art. And it’s not just art that looks good, it is art that moves with and works with the human body. Wearable art, one might say.
In times of economic hardship, we’re all reminded to buy locally. No matter where our locale is, it suddenly becomes exceptionally important that we buy there. I’m not going to pretend I fully understand the reasons behind this, but I love a good display of patriotism as much as the next girl and there’s no display of patriotism like an American display of patriotism. So without further ado, let us man the lingerie!
You men with your incessant use of the words ‘sexual fantasies’ in a sex free zone, I don’t know. Here’s another scandalous comment that had to be moderated from Hub Pages. I hope you are wearing all your protective gear for this because it is most certainly not family safe, and if it’s not safe for families, it will probably bring down Western civilization as we know it.

Pantied boy says:
If I would really have to fit myself in one of the gategories, it would be the Strict Panties Man, but that’s not the whole truth.
Currently the only female clothes I own are panties, which i’m wearing 24/7, and I would like to own much more panties than average female do. Besides I’m quite interested in skirts, knee/thigh high socks, and nightdresses. However panties are the only must ones while the others would be just bit extra fun which I wouldn’t be wearing all the time.
I also have no problems accepting the fact that I have feminine side. Though I don’t really have two personas, pantied me and the other one. It’s just the one very same me all the time. Having cute panties on is just good way to express the softer side. When wearing panties I feel being totally myself. Giving myself a female name or dressing myself as close to female-look as possible isn’t something I could ever imagine myself doing. Yet I sometimes like to play with idea of me being a woman.

Ah second hand lingerie. It has such a bad name for itself, thanks to Japan and its weird vending machines of days gone by, but second hand lingerie can be a boon for the lingerie lover. It is cheap, it quite often has something of a ‘vintage’ charm, and it is cheap. Did I say ‘cheap’ twice? That’s because it’s usually very cheap. It’s also good for the environment to re-use old garments rather than burying them in land fills.(It’s also very good for the environment not to breed, so keep that in mind the next time the pope breaks into your house through the bathroom window and tries to steal your prophylactics away.)
Buying lingerie can be just as addictive as snorting glucose off the top of a doll house. And as many ‘sugar heads’ will tell you, the habit is even harder to break. Why? Well, scientific research conducted by the FDA indicates that 9 out of 10 people who buy lingerie do so because lingerie is ‘awesome.’ It looks good, it feels good and it makes you feel good about yourself. Just one piece of nice lingerie can be more effective than a whole pack of back alley Prozac.
The title of this hub should not be construed to mean that men who love lingerie are, in fact, lingerie. It would be difficult to argue such a point convincingly, even with help from existential philosophers. A man may be the dream of a butterfly, but he is most certainly not a B cup contour bra from Victoria’s Secret.
Acetate, or CH3COOH as I like to call it, was once the fabric of choice for much of the world’s fine lingerie. Before nylon popped onto the scene with its flashy softness, it’s relative cheapness of production and its steadfast resistance to getting holes in it when accidentally exposed to acetone, acetate was the soft, shiny, silk like material of choice for people who were serious about looking good and feeling good in their lingerie.
Satin and lace, lovely on their own, but when combined together they become one of the greatest couples in the history of lingerie. The Brangelina of lingerie, if you will, or perhaps the Prince Rainer and Princess Grace of lingerie, if you’re more inclined to worship royalty over large lipped actors. This article takes a look at some of the saucy satin and lace lingerie out there.
