Okay, You Wear Panties...Now What?

For many of us, panties were the very first piece of lingerie we ever tried on.  Who can resist a pair of pretty panties?  There are so many options to choose from... panties with ruffles, panties with bows, pretty lace on the edging, satin, silk, cotton... and of course, there are so many shades of pink to wear and patterns and styles to choose from. Panties were the first piece of lingerie I bought when I started to build my wardrobe and are still my favorite thing to shop for.

But by now your drawer is probably filled with pink panties, sexy thongs, and panties with pretty flowers patterned on them. So...what's next? I like to think that panties are a gateway lingerie, the first step to creating a beautiful wardrobe of pretty things to wear under our clothes (or in the bedroom!). It's completely normal for us to crave new pretty things to wear, but what should you wear next?  I'm glad you asked!

For some of us, the natural next step is buying a bra. Although, there is nothing sexier than a matching bra and panty, I would recommend first picking out some camisoles. Camisoles are tops that usually have thin spaghetti straps that are available in a variety of fabric, colors and patterns. You can find a cami with sexy lacy edging, camis made of irresistible satin and camis covered in flirty polka-dots. Camis are amazing to wear under a work shirt...a sexy secret only you know about. They're also perfect for lounging in or for sleeping. Camis are also pretty undetectable under clothes and are ideal for adding a little more femininity to your day. Everyone needs a few matching cami/panty sets. 

Another favorite piece of lingerie are bodysuits. Bodysuits come in a variety of fabrics... mesh, satin and lace. Bodysuits look sexy and more importantly, they feel sexy. They're perfect for wearing under our boring work clothes and for nightwear. My favorite Xdress bodysuit is the Daisy Mesh Bodysuit. No one can resist the touch of mesh and a pretty daisy pattern that just adds the perfect girly touch. If you are looking to start your day in an amazing way, it doesn't get better than waking up in this feminine bodysuit.

If you still want more beautiful lingerie in your wardrobe (and who doesn't?), it's time to add the most feminine thing you can wear...a bra. Of course, why stop at just one bra? There are so many options to choose from. In my lingerie dresser (yes, I have a full dresser!) I have bras for every occasion. Certain bras are needed for certain outfits, whether I need a push-up bra or a strapless one or one of a certain color. And of course, every bra needs a matching panty. You'll need bras that are sensible and functional, but everyone needs sexy bras, too. My absolute favorite matching set that Xdress sells is the Champagne Pink Ruffle Bra and matching tanga. You'll love how you'll look in a matching set.

Finally, once you've added camis, bodysuits and bras to your lingerie wardrobe (see how it quickly you can fill an entire dresser?), it's time to add the cherry to the sundae with stockings and garter belts.  Nothing says sexy like a pair of sheer black stockings held by a lacy garter belt... even better when the garter belt matches your bra and panty. Stockings come in a variety of options and trust me, you'll want and need them all. I have an entire drawer dedicated to stockings and I have stockings for every occasion. Hold-ups, seamed stockings, and the ultimate in sexiness, fishnets. If you're looking to feel your sexiest, whether in the bedroom or under your three piece suit, you can't go wrong with a matching bra, panty and garter belt. 

Have fun building your lingerie wardrobe!  And please tell us, what is your favorite sexy thing to wear?



Jim, You should try wearing a camisole and panties in bed as a gentle introduction to set the scene for later trying a nightie. A camisole looks more “normal”, like a tank top but with sexy narrow straps, so your wife will most likely accept it and maybe even love you in it! Xdress has some super cute camisoles, so take the first step!

I wear panties 24/7 and my wife supports my fetish. I want to wear a nightie to bed

Jim October 13, 2021

Feel great, smooth and great fit plus the colors are so nice and the man thing now has some play room.

Dean, like you, I too love sheer baby dolls. X-dress, I wanted to saty that I still have that white, sheer, see-thru baby doll I purchased from you long, long ago! Would love to see sheer baby dolls in more colors. Perwinkle would be sexy as well. Would even like to find a full length sheer baby doll/gown in this color as well. Dean. so lucky to have had a chance to wear moms and by the way, I did use panties to stuff moms & sisters bras as well. Try using water balloons, you will love the bounce whne wearing big bra cups.

Marsha, I too love the color of “periwinkle”. Every time I find lingerie in this color, I just have to purchase it. Would love to fnd a sheer, see-thru baby doll in this color. I have been able to purchase several sheer panties in this color as well.

Hi Hannah, I have enjoyed women’s satin underwear since I was about 10. I now wear satin string open tanga underwear 24/7. I know that if I could I would wear satin full slips, garter belts with fresh stockings with my satin panties. There is nothing like that feel of satin against satin against my skin. Thank you for this place to express this. Chris

Chris October 15, 2020

The sexiest thing I wear is the satin and lace hipster with matching bra! Thank you XDress!

Scott October 02, 2020

Yes I too started xdressing by wearing panties. I loved it, the look and the feel, and it wasn’t too long before i I was in college, living on my own, wearing a bra and I kept adding to my lingerie collection. I now wear lingerie 24-7 and my wife love it!

Lee September 04, 2020

many congratulations for the blog. I confess that I didn’t know Xdress, much less that there was a specific lingerie brand for men. I started wearing lingerie in my teens encouraged by my boyfriend at the time and I never left. I like beautiful and comfortable lingerie, but in men we have some difficulty. I usually use thong, Brazilian underwear and shorts by the brands Lise Charmel, Aubade and La Perla. I tried Intimissimi but I didn’t like the manufacture. I can barely try yours! Nuno.

Nothing beats a hot pair of panties, of course (and is there any other kind?). But has xdress thought of making a romper? They’ve become my favorite go-to outfit. I think it’s the fact that they’re one-piece that makes them so much sexier than just a top and a pair of shorts. When you put them on, you know immediately that you’re wearing something only a woman would wear. And there’s nothing sexier than that!

Jackie September 15, 2019

I wear panties 24/7 since wearing all the time I have never had a girlfriend object!!i also love garters am thigh high stockings and makes one look and feel sexy and that is what it is supposed to do!!! Unfortunately I love the good stuff Lise Charmel Aubade Ravage La perla pleasure state.

Dave May 30, 2019

I have been wearing panties for few years.. not on a daily frequency… I also love to feel the touch of stocking on my hairy legs… the "amorphic border between my manhood and femininity turns me on..
I hope to be able to wear more, especialy outside but also at home ( i dont feel comfortable near my little kids)
I’d like to wear more babydoll or robes and to start wearing high heels (that my wife promised to buy me, but haven’t till now).
I’m waiting for large size bra to be availble againin your store, in order to buy me one or two for the first time

I’ve been wearing panties for quite a while now my wife was fine with it,I wanted to wear more outfits and that conversation was a tough one. I had to convince her that I wasn’t gay just liked wearing women’s clothes,we have been married for 23years and this was shock to her.she gave me permission to buy some outfits so we looked on Xdress and decided to buy the French maid dress , black stockings,mary Jane shoes,satin panties and garder belt that she helped put on. That night was amazing I walked better in heels than I thought I would she was impressed. I haven’t worn heels since I was 11 used to walk around the house in my moms I guess it just like riding a bike. I’m looking forward to going shopping for nightgowns with her so I can try them on and get the right fit. I wish Xdress would sell nighties and nightgowns I know they would fit me. Life is much better now thanks Xdress for helping me to get where I am now.

Robert October 28, 2018

Xdress has lots of bras that fit me and I wear 40b

Stevie July 30, 2018

Hi Hannah

I’ve been wearing panties for a long time since I grew up with two sisters. But have been wearing 24/7 for a good 30 yrs. My wife accepts my panty wearing and occasional bra. I love bras especially the unlined ones but finding my size very difficult. I am 6’ 2” and 250lbs and b cup 40 bras are hard to find. I also like women’s swimwear to wear around my pool.

Pantylvr July 23, 2018

Thank you for the kind words Tami. You are certainly not alone.

Love, Hannah

Hannah McKnight June 06, 2018

Hannah, outstanding blog. It’s comforting to know there are so many other gurls like me out there. Lost count of the number of panties I have, but panties and thigh highs are my go to, feel good fetish. Thank you Hannah, for all your encouragement.

Tami Gurl June 05, 2018

Hi Dean! Thank you for sharing your story!

Hannah McKnight June 05, 2018

Panties are fun, so many styles, colors n patterns, materials. My go to item to wear is a cute little babydoll nighty, short, silky, sheer, and a g-string panty. I have worn many of them, got started when I found my mom’s when I was going, maybe 12. I do stuff the cups sometimes as I luv the look. I have and do wear other nightgowns too, and bras, alot of sexy ones, again stuffing the cups so I have tits. Thank you Hannah for this article and letting me tell my story.

Dean June 04, 2018

Hi Dave! Sounds like you two had a lot of fun!

Love, Hannah

Hannah McKnight June 03, 2018

hi hannah, I’m a 35 yo naughty panty boy and for me its gotta be a pair of sexy little thongs with a garter belt and thigh hi fishnets! My last gf started dressing me up in lingerie.

Dave June 02, 2018

Hi Stephanie! I know exactly what you mean! I feel younger (and more powerful!) dressed up!

Love, Hannah

Hannah McKnight May 31, 2018

Hi Ricky! If you don’t do so already, I would recommend shaving your legs. Not only is there nothing like a smoothly shaved leg, hold-ups also have an easier time holding up if there’s no leg hair.

Love, Hannah

Hannah McKnight May 31, 2018

I prefer garter belts, but I also usually wear them with stay-ups because they never “stay-up”. Lol

Ricky May 31, 2018

I love wearing panties. I wear them 24/7, and have done so for nearly thirty years. I have a variety of styles, fabrics. colors, and prints. I wear camisoles almost every day. I frequently will wear bras, and silky feel lace top thigh-high nylons. I get fully dressed about three times a month. This helps to keep me in touch with my strong feminine feelings. When I do dress up, it makes me feel years younger than my actual age. I enjoy visiting xdress, along with other crossdressing sites.
