The Wonderful World of Panties!

Greetings Dear Readers!

I hope you are well and wearing something pretty. First, a shout out to Nathan, who suggested a blog topic about lingerie. Thanks, Nathan. What a fun topic! Because the word “lingerie” covers such a large array of clothing, I’m going to limit this blog to the topic of panties – a topic I know you are all totally into, as am I.

The great majority of us got our start in cross-dressing with panties. A good number of us started by exploring mom’s or sister’s panty drawer and then progressed to buying our own. Some folks, once they are adults, limit themselves to underdressing under their everyday male clothing, while others of us progressed on to bras, hosiery, and finally outer clothing. 

I was a late starter, having begun with underdressing in middle age. Do you remember the thrill of that first time you slipped into a pair of panties? I was so amazed by the choices. With men’s underwear, you have a choice of tighty whities or boxers. Of course, you could expand that to uh, tighty whities or boxers. Of course, you can also find male thongs, usually in, of all places, swimwear. With panties, you’ve got this amazing variety of styles, colors, and fabrics. Xdress/Body Aware has a huge selection, ranging from pretty grannies to bikinis, thongs, G-strings, tap pants, tangas – ah the list goes on! And the fabrics! Lace, satin, cotton, polyester. I’m all about comfort, and men’s underwear does not begin to measure up to the comfortable styles and fabrics of panties.

It’s interesting to me that, although I’ve been underdressing for many years now (I have one pair of men’s underwear that I wear for my annual physical with my very conservative doctor) that it is still a treat every morning to pick out the day’s panties. When I wore men’s underwear, I didn’t give a thought to the selection of underwear, as they all looked the same. Not so with panties. Every day it is fun to decide on what panties to wear. Is it like that for you?

Online panty shopping is the safest way to go, and Xdress/Body Aware panties are designed with the male physique in mind, in terms of the width of the gusset, which gives a very comfortable fit. It is also fun to go to the “other side of the store” and explore the panty section. I am very fortunate to have a very supportive wife, and we go panty shopping together. I find that shopping in stores appeals to my feminine side, plus it is just a bit risky, making it all the more fun. Part of the fun for me is wearing a very sexy pair of panties under my women’s jeans and nobody has a clue how hot I look under it all. Speaking of jeans, if you try on a pair of women’s skinny jeans, you’ll never go back to men’s jeans. I know, that’s off topic, but I just had to throw that in there. 

Okay, so there are my thoughts on the topic. How about you? Are you a full-time panty wearer or limit it to weekends or special occasions? How old were you when you started underdressing? What are your favorite styles/fabrics? What is your preferred style of shopping – online or brick and mortar? Warm up those keyboards guys/gurls. You know I love hearing your stories.

Fond regards,



Terry, it was good to read that a 68 year former USMC member also wears panties. I too wore panties during my military career. While stationed over seas for 3 years, my ex would send me her nylon panties to wear. Her panties had a double layer of nylon in the crotch (no cotton in the lining back then) and I always kept my privates shaved to enhance the feeling of the nylon . I think some of my friends suspect that I wear panties but are not sure. I think it is cool that you have no problemss in letting others see your panties sticking out from your jeans. Good for you!

Roxanne, I also love nylon panties. Growing up, mom & both sisters all wore nylon panties. Back in the day, they did not have the cotton lining they have now day’s in the crotch of their panties. They had a double layer of nylon in the crotch. With very little pubic hair at the time, I LOVED feeling that nylon on my prviates. For that very reason, I always REMOVE the cotton lining from my panties prior to wearing to this very day! I would even find sisters panties in the clothes hamper and would wear them to school now & then. As far as crotchless panties, I would buy them for my g/f back when Fredreick’s of Hollywood was still around. Regardless if they were crotchless or not, she would always wear her panties to bed and we both enjoyed it.

Geoffrey, I agree, it is so comforting to slip on a fresh pair of nylon panties with lace trim around the waist & leg openings. Especially when they are in pink and have a bow in the center waist.

Ron November 29, 2020

Highly recommend the Lace Crotchless Heart Panty! So much fun! I have worn them to be in bed but not to sleep (wink!).

Scott November 04, 2020

I began wearing panties at age 10 after finding my mother’s silk panties in the clothes hamper and that gradually led to a progression to desiring to look and feel more feminine by wearing other kinds of lingerie. The second step in my secret world was to purchase an underwire 38 B bra with pretty lace and one that matched with my cute black nylon lace panties. That lingerie combination commenced a rapid unquenchable desire to purchase and collect more and more nylon lingerie. These purchases included short and long slips, full length nighties and matching robes, teddies, camisoles, vintage RHT Hanes stockings, nylon slippers, and open toed sandals. More to continue later.

Roxanne November 04, 2020

Do any of you like to wear crotchless panties.? If so, do you wear them to bed? My wife and I buy matching crotchless panties and they add a something special to our intimacy.

Roxanne November 04, 2020

Having been a veteran nylon panty wearer, I was disappointed that nylon was not mentioned as a fabric Of choice at the beginning of the conversation. For me nylon lingerie is soooo soft and soooo feminine.

Roxanne November 04, 2020

Panties! What a wonderful clothing invention. It seems like you just can not get enough of them. I know, i have almost 100 pairs. But seriously, the panty is a great clothing item and the feel against your body is truly amazing. I have been in panties for many years, and still to this day I am a proud panty wearer. During the times we are living in, wearing panties is a stress reliever and gives you that feminine good feeling. There is nothing more satisfying than slipping on a fresh panty after a long day, i hope of course you were wearing a panty during your day. Changing into a fresh one is most pleasant and relaxing. It is really sad that male sissy panties are not a more common clothing item. The feel, fabric, color patterns and style are just so perfect. For us XD males, it is a wonderful world!!!

I have been a panty wearer for a few years, I couldn’t deny myself any longer and put on a pair of my wifes and asked her how she liked them on me? When the shock wore off, it evolved into her taking me panty shopping. Having a mask on these days is a nuisance, but takes some of the recognizable issues out of shopping at the neighborhood store. Mind you, I don’t care, but I have a public job and need to be mondful.

I’ve bought 3 bras, my wife suggested forms. I bought some beautiful ones, she surprised me with some smaller ones, of which she approves. Baby steps. My wardrobe is growing, I have 7 dresses, a skirt, a drawer full of beautiful panties-mostly bikini, some brief. I have some xdress nylons with garter, and a few pairs of shoes. I cant wait to go out, I need a wig and learn make up tips. I’d go today if I were ready. Lastly, it’s fun when she “catches me” dressing up, I ended up getting my bottom paddled real good. I’m wearing matching bra and panties now with a dress. I hope she catches me again this morning!

I am writing to say how wonderful my fiesta lace panty looks and feels. Subtly revealing behind the gorgeous grey lace trimmed in red. So delightful and so soft on my skin. Tantalising and gorgeous.

I prefer the term manties but tomato/tomato.
Why should women have all the fun?
I was a wearer of panties for many years because I was unaware of Body Aware and XDress. I used to shop at VS, Walmart (yes, Walmart) and Sona as they all have a variety of styles and fabrics. My favorites are the hipsters and the cheeky or boy shorts. When I found Body Aware, I was very pleased with the selection but sometimes disappointed by the inventory (STILL WAITING FOR THE GLOSSY SATIN TANGA) and I posted a comment on their blog and Dave directed me to this site. Inventory is good and they offer a few more styles, including the hipster! So glad to have found this site! My new manties are coming tomorrow along with my first bra!

Scott August 11, 2020

I love wearing seductive panties, thongs and g-strings. Especially in lace which give that tantalising appearance irrespective of their colour.
For me personally, when you wear sexy underwear you have to be smooth shaven. It looks amazing and feels amazing too.

Hi I am a 68 year old man served in the usmc and I love to wear nice pretty panties. It is do much fun and very exciting every mourning when it is time to pick out today’s panties. Of course it al depends on what I am go to do that day. Staying at home any pair works, but if I am planning on going some where I like to make sure that I wear a nice red red pair or one of my other many nice panties in all colors. Because I like to make sure that people see my panties. I lower my jeans, and I like to wear briefs because of the high waist band makes it easier for me to show them off. I have some short shirts that I wear also. As I am shopping or walking I like to make sure my panties are visible. I like it when a women has a facial reaction when she realizes I am wearing panties. I go to my doctor whom is a women and I make sure that I wear a special pair so that when I have that gown on with know back I juse leave it wide open so she has a grest look at my panties. I wear panties all the time now for the last 5 years. I really like women seeing my panties.
Let’s hear what you think about what I have said here tonight. My family doesn’t know but my ex does. I hsve told a number of people I would actually like every one to know I wear panties but not sure it is the right time now.

adorei o seu post no blog. O interesse por cuequinhas começou na minha adolescencia e a pedido do meu namorado. Ele pediu-me para usar cuequinha e na altura fomoa a gaveta da mae e escolhi uma cuequinha azul bebe que ainda hoje guardo na memoria. Desde ai nunca mais deixei de usar cuequinhas no meu dia a dia. sao super confortaveis, sensuais e nao me vejo a usar outra coisa a nao ser em ocasioes especiais como ir ao medico por exemplo. Tenho varios modelos e varias cores e adoro escolher todos os dias uma de acordo com o meu estado de espirito. Normalmente uso fio dental ou cueca brasileira e comprei uns shorts para experimentar. Foi uma boa surpresa ter descoberto a Xdress e nao vejo a hora de poder experimentar a vossa lingerie

I loved your blog post. The interest in underwear started in my adolescence and at the request of my boyfriend. He asked me to wear a pair of pants and at the time he promoted the mother’s drawer and I chose a baby blue suit that I still remember today. Since then I never stopped wearing underwear in my day to day. they are super comfortable, sexy and I don’t see myself using anything else except on special occasions like going to the doctor for example. I have several models and colors and I love to choose one every day according to my mood. I usually use thong or Brazilian underwear and bought some shorts to try on. It was a good surprise to have discovered Xdress and I can’t wait to try your lingerie.

Love this blog ………I also like to wear sexy panties in sheer , mesh and lace fabrics. For the most alluring look I prefer the G-string and C-string. I also try from XD next time.

Elena January 02, 2020

I wish to be anonymous, but I would like to try to tell you my story. I’m a 54 year old guy I come from a very large family of 8 girls and 1 boy. I’m the youngest, and the only boy lol. So I got handmedown underwear. I never had to wear my sister’s clothes or anything like that just the panteis. I have never worn any men’s underwear in my life. My mom, and dad ran a very large farm, and didn’t have much money to buy us lots of clothes. With that being said mom would shop for the girls, and I would always get new panteis jeans, and some shirts for school. She bought panteis for all of us because they were comfortable, and cheaper than boys underwear. Mom loved the silky fabrics so she always bought me the softest silliest panteis she could find same for the girls. I never had to wear cotton panteis only the girls had cotton panteis for when it was their time. Personally I love panties wear them all the time because they are so comfortable, and they have so many different styles colors, and fabrics to choose from that I don’t want to wear men’s underwear. I love my mom, and dad rest your souls, and I am very grateful for the way that I was raised. I’m proud to wear women’s panteis, and I am not afraid of what people may say about my panteis. My wife of 23 years is very supportive, and understands very well why I wear panteis. She has no problem with it. She has only been blessed to know my mother for a very short time and she always tells me that my mother was a great person. My sister’s friends, and everyone else that I know in my life have always been very supportive of my family, and for that I am truly grateful. Mom dad I love you so much, and I am very proud to be your son.

Please dont have all models shaven, some of us are not , we re just men who like lingerie, we dont want to be shaven we wont to be sexy men in lingerie. Some want clean shaven but not all

Stevie November 01, 2019

Welcome to our community Bodhi. A good way to organize and show your market strength would be to contribute regularly to this blog and also to support Xdress who have been working for 3 decades to normalize the concept that it is OK for men to wear lingerie!

David October 30, 2019

Angie, I totally agree with you! I’m a 45 year old man that has worn panties pretty much all my adult life. I enjoy the rebellion of it, the free expression I feel. And I love the fabrics, the lace, the sheer material, the different cuts. There is plenty of sexy underwear made for men, but it still can’t replace the feel of a sexy pair of panties. I wish there were more ways for us panty wearing men to organize so we could show our market strength.

Bodhi October 30, 2019

please have all your models be totally clean shaven. Some of your models it looks like they are not completely shaven

holly October 26, 2019

Hello all, I’ve been reading the comments and I got very inspired by everything you were saying.
I will never forget the feeling when I got in a shop to buy my first knickers… it was so liberating. After that (around 3 years ago) I started researching online and found out about xdress. Since the beginning I shared about this experience with my girlfriend and at first she got confused. She asked, but you also want to be a woman? She became very supportive about that and today we choose what will be the next knickers together.
I wear them when I am in the mood. Sometimes just to sleep sometimes to spend the day, go out, etc. As long as I don’t feel super self conscious about showing off my thong by accident I am fine. It makes me feel super sexy and comfortable.
But there is one reason I still having boring ‘male’ underwear. Is that you need to be able to afford a collection of good panties… and the true is that it is expensive. I am not talking about the quality that is amazing. But would be fantastic to see this kind of underwear becoming more popular and accessible for everyone!
Lots of love, from Glasgow.

The wonderful world of panties … oh and how wonderful it is. From buying, to wearing, to showing, to colors, to styles, to fabrics … it is truly a wonderful world.

Pauley October 16, 2019

Dear John
You are so right. For guys raised to be masculine yet desperate to release their feminine side, feminization trainers or support is definitely the way to go. You can however take small steps yourself by practicing your own deportment a little every day; the way you sit with your legs together or lift your posture a little more when you walk for example. Sit up straight. Swing your arms a little less when you walk. Relax your face and open your eyes a little more. All these things are gentler ways of moving through the world and showing respect for yourself and others. Far easier by far if you’re wearing beautiful xdress panties and a bralette too. Shed that aggressive masculine mask and be gentler with the world.

You are absolutely right, having someone there to support you is absolutely essential. It can be a significant other, friend, family member, counselor… anyone that will support you. Sharing your feelings about this side of yourself with someone who won’t judge you completely changes your mindset about it. You will no longer feel ashamed but instead feel encouraged to be yourself, which we all deserve to be.
