What Do Women Think About Men’s Panties?

Posted on 05 October 2017

OK, what actually are men’s panties? Are we talking about the conventional boxer brief? Here at XDress, we don’t do boring and to us, men’s panties don’t have to be plain and simple. Men’s panties are fun, lacy, silky, and everything in between. So, what do women think about this? We’ve come to realize that so many women don’t care. Not only do they not care, they actually enjoy the quirkiness of it all. Women want to make their men happy and if her man is happy wearing a sexy lacy number, then why not? It’s time to break the typical rules on men’s panties, and here’s how:


1. Give Your Man Some Unique Gifts
We all know that gift giving is one of the most difficult things in life, the sheer panic and instant stress that happens as soon as one foot enters the shop. Even if you know the person really well, it can be so hard. A great idea would be to invest in some unique gifts for your man. A gift you know that no one else is going to give him. If you’re married, reenact your wedding night with a frilly garter for him. Not married? A bit of role play is always a bit of fun! There’s also the option to go for a bra for men. Yes, we know most women can’t wait to take off their bra at the end of a long working day, but many men love wearing them and a smooth satin bra is going to feel smooth against his chest. Whatever unique gift you decide on, you’re sure to both reap the benefits.


2. Have Fun
Lingerie isn’t just about something you stick under your clothes because you have to. It’s about having fun! If you’re a woman, do you have fun dressing up for your man in lace underwear? We bet the answer is yes. You feel good and you look great. You have fun. Switch it up a bit with some lace panties for men. Lace is arguably one of the best fabrics going, especially for underwear. It’s sexy, bold, daring, kinky and it’s for men and women! However, life doesn’t have to all be about lace; there are plenty of ways to have fun with your underwear. How about some funky socks and short shorts for men? Match it up with a leotard, or mix it up with your own combination of patterns, designs and fabrics (the more creative, the better). Whatever your style, remember to have fun and enjoy it!


3. Stop Listening to Others
People are opinionated. Whether that be the gobby bloke who lives at the end of the street, the media, or a work colleague, they just are. Whilst it’s true that everyone is entitled to their opinion, it doesn’t mean we all have to agree, or that their opinions should influence the way the rest of us think. If you’re a man who enjoys wearing underwear traditionally deemed as feminine, or you’re a woman who supports her male acquaintances who like to wear said panties, that’s great. At XDress, we fully support your decision to live your life the way you want to and like we said before, if you’re worried about what the females in society think, they’re a lot more open-minded than you probably originally anticipated. If you do come across someone spouting off a load of abuse, ignore them and continue to BE YOU. Plus, it’s none of their bloody business anyway!


We’d love to hear your thoughts on this. If you’re a woman, what are your thoughts on men’s panties? Would you let your boyfriend or husband wear lace underwear for men? If you’re a man, how does wearing these undies make you feel?

    Since 1990, I weared women panties. I have one hundred panties. I love and I wear everyday. Now, I try to wear bra

  • Stacey Lucas: November 15, 2017

    About 3 years into our relationship, my fella confessed to wear knickers. At first I was very shocked, but after a couple of weeks taking the situation on board, my feelings changed completely. The first time I actively embraced his panty wearing sexually was absolutely fantastic.

  • Keri: November 15, 2017

    When I saw SR’s comments I agreed with his points. I was already married when I introduced my wife to the idea of my wearing panties. I had bought some pricey men’s nylon undies which she seemed to be okay with. She didn’t like the price though. That led to her making the suggestion one day while out shopping that I buy some less expensive women’s panties. The ice was broken and the game changed. I was now, with permission, wearing panties. Initially she bought, we bought, just white. That changed over the next several months and soon I was wearing pastels, prints and lace. I floated the idea of bras by her and camisoles. The bras were a definite NO but as long as the camis did not have lace they were okay. Her fear was I would be seen with lacey camisoles on somewhere or the lace would show through. I accepted the terms. By the time I had exclusively gone over the women’s panties she gave me a fabulous Christmas gift. She gave me my first nightie. Over the years she had accepted that I enjoyed crossdressing. Women’s shorts, select tops, sweaters and sneakers all became part of my wardrobe. The shorts etc; had to pass her unisex test. That test did loosen up as she became comfortable over the years. Now even my bath, perfumes and toiletries are all female products. In the end she accepted and I didn’t push. I actually think, I know, she enjoys having a husband/girlfriend.

    The best strategy if you’re single and you feel that you absolutely won’t be happy in a relationship unless your partner is understanding of your cross dressing is to be open about it from the beginning. Also, you’ll have to be honest about whether you’ll be happy with a partner that’s simply tolerant of your cross dressing, or you desire one that’s more supportive of it.

    For men that have been in long term relationships, I’d advise easing your lady into the idea. Keep in mind that after years together, your wife feels that she truly knows you so anything you do that demonstrates the opposite will be unsettling to her. Lots of TLC and reassurance will go a long way.

    My trick with new sexual partners has always been to jokingly try to put on their underwear in bed just to test their reaction. It’s pretty easy to tell who’s a hard “no” to the idea, and who is open minded, and you can still save some face with the women that are against the idea by playing it off as only a joke. Just be aware that a lot of women that are open to it will still need to get some nervous laughter out of their system.

    Sometimes the idea just needs to grow on them. I dated one woman that was tolerant, but unenthusiastic at first. She’d always giggle and tell me I was silly for wearing them. After a few weeks of seeing her, I happened to be staying over at her place on a day I was wearing boxers. She was actually disappointed that I wasn’t in panties, and got me a pair of her boy shorts to put on!

    Dear All,

    This site is amazing along with bodyaware. The way i see it..underwear is just underwear. Wether its boxer briefs or a string bikini or a thong. Calvin Klein makes thongs for does xdress and bodyaware. I just so happen to like our thongs amd bikinis more. My girlfriend absolutely loves every 50+ pairs of “panties” that i have. We call call them manties. Or panties. Or just plain ol underwear. Because thats what they are. I don’t see it as a fetish or taboo. We both see it as a different style of underwear that I choose to like and wear. Im bisexual, ive never came across any boyfriend or girlfriend who has never liked my undies. They are sexy! Ive learned to not hide my unique underwear Style but in fact to not hide them at all as everyone else does with their underwear garments. Because they are just underwear!

    @JM: yes, I kind of made it up but it’s a fair guess at least in my part of the world. The women I’ve talked to are mainly in their 30’s, and many are seamstresses or some fashion-related “something” as is my wife. Which makes me wonder even more – how could you not like these clothes on men!? I’ve had a very long talk with my wife about this and not once but several times and she is strictly against it, the same position from other women (and there are a lot of them). There were couple of women though who said “rather not” so that is like the 5% range :)). My wife mentioned about it to my mother-in-law that there’s actually lace and stockings for men to which MIL said – oh no that’s sooo gay!! So that tells me – unless women are ready to change, nothing will change for men. Those women who actually love this move are either malfunctioning or a God’s miracle for the male society, and thank you for that! At least I’m not blessed with this and most likely the whole northen Europe is the same. It has had some media coverage also in my area and if you read through hundreds of comments it becomes clear – women want to kill you should you dare to wear these clothes.

    Crotchless panties, yes or no? Myself I love them, bought two pair once satin and lace, a green n black and a red n black pair. My wife and I had sex wearing these, each wearing a pair. Let me tell you, some of the best sex ever, a hj, a bj and intercourse. The material rubbing on my cock kept me going. But I too love to just wear one with my junk out hanging and swinging, and showing off too.

  • Dean: October 30, 2017

    Mens panties can be expensive, womens panties less expensive. Is this a reason to buy from womens lingerie? Both can and are cute, sexy, and soft and comfy to wear. Is it more of fun and a turn on to wear womens panties and lingerie, I know it is for me. I started young taking my mother’s things, dressing and playing then returning them till next session. I am a str8 man (59) but, I like to look and get ideas. Y’all tell what is your self pleasure time is like. I am right now drinking coffee wearing wifes boyshort byline panty, teehee I’m so naughty.

  • Dean: October 27, 2017

    So here I am in a bit of a pickle, I have been secretly wearing in private for my fun and self pleasure. I was wearing and playing yesterday and I took some pics, well I decided to talk and share pics with wife, well it seems not a smart move. She is a little mad or disappointed in me. I continued today doing the same, found two pair of my MIL`s I didn’t know of they would fit but they did, some I took some very erotic pics. So for two days now wearing and taking pics and playing with myself. I have told my wife that there is something else I want to talk to her about. I want to get some nighties, a babydoll, sheer or satin, or a chemise. I want us to have matching ones to maybe take the sting out, I just know she will freak. It scares me alot and maybe she won’t go along. I love the one nighty sold here on xdress, something like it with a gstring panty, I would be hard all the time. I love the items on this site too.

    Good blog and posts. From my experience most women were interested and enjoyed the level of excitement. There were a few that had a take or leave it attitude but none never said Hell No or left me for wearing panties and lingerie. My wife of today and I love to go shopping together and finding matching panties, lingerie, and sleepwear. It brings an excitement into our relationship. Many times we can’t even wait to get home to try on the new lingerie and find ourselves changing in the car. If a woman is so closed minded about a man wearing panties than I say good riddance because there are more women out there who enjoy their men in panties than you could imagine.

  • JM: October 21, 2017

    @Ivo: I don’t know where you came up with that 95% figure, but I’m pretty sure you just made it up. I’ve revealed my love of lingerie to seven different women, and the worst reaction I got was “I’m not really into it, but if you like it, more power to you!” The same woman wound up enjoying my “dressing up,” and even contributed a few items to my wardrobe.

    In my experience, many women do like seeing a “manly” man, with boxer briefs and chest hair and all that, but that doesn’t mean they can’t appreciate seeing a more sensitive, feminine side to the man in their life. There’s no reason it has to be all or nothing. Showing some vulnerability every once in a while can be extremely attractive to a woman.

    That being said, I’d imagine older women would be more likely to have a bias against cross-dressing, but every woman is different, and there’s no reason to assume that you’re gonna be criticized or mocked. It’s not that hard to get a feeling for how adventurous a woman is just by talking to them. If they’re obviously conservative or critical of others, then yeah, you probably don’t want to share your private preferences with them, but if they’re open-minded and sexually adventurous, then the worst reaction you’re likely to get is “eh, that doesn’t really turn me on.”

    The first time I wore panties, my girlfriend gave them to me to wear. I wore them all day at work and couldn’t stop thinking of her.

  • Danielle: October 20, 2017

    My boyfriend has more “man-panties” than ever! He loves to try them on for me and let me pick out which panties he will model next. I couldn’t be more turned on or proud of his feminine side. It only proves that a big, strong, tattooed, chopper riding, 6 inch lifted Chevy Silverado driving man can wear lingerie and not be ANY less powerful. We are extremely sexual and do whatever is necessary to keep things hot in the bedroom. I love how his backside looks in all the pretty panties when it’s a pegging night!!

  • James Chamberlin: October 19, 2017

    I am all for men wearing panties and bras if the man and their spouse enjoy having him wear them!

  • Roland: October 17, 2017

    My wife calls my sexy undies my Fundies. She reaps the benefits of me feeling sexier wearing them. I’m 65 but don’t carry near that age. Wife’s who have an issue with it are that way because society says don’t it, mostly the religious society or their parents influence. I’m buying more including garters and camis. Life is too short not to live it to the fullest.

  • Ivo: October 15, 2017

    I absolutely love what you do and sell, but…

    You say “if you’re worried about what the females in society think, they’re a lot more open-minded than you probably originally anticipated.”, now, I haven’t seen any researches in that matter that could confirm the quoted sentence. I know, that the majority of women (about 95% or even more) actually do not like the idea of seeing either their man or just any man in lingerie traditionally associated to women. They love to see a man that is rough and hairy etc, not smooth-silky-skin male who wears frilly lacy lingerie or a pair of stockings with heels. They just don’t feel safe and secure with that kind of man and they absolutely think it’s “gay”. I also know it somehow gives them an impression of living with a lesbian not with a man they once knew, it puts them off you know. Women (aka the society, because anything related to fashion is controlled by women) are not ready for this, it’s like intruding into their territory. So what happens when they see a man in that kind of lingerie?? They laugh out loud, and no man wants to be laughed at, ridiculed and joked about, believe me. I have a lot of female friends and many through my wife and whenever this kind of subject has come up in talks you can actually see and hear and even feel in your heart that this is something they absolutely hate. So, if you want to live in loneliness, go ahead and try it out. Maybe that is why there’s so many “gay” men out there or men who are forced to only secretly rock this female lingerie when their wife is not around, hidden in the closet? Noone wants to live alone, absolutely no man wants to live alone as men are driven by testosterone constantly looking for ways to get laid you know. Should we choose the lacy way this would not be possible anymore. And because of that, this is considered a fetish. Anything related to this word – you’re on your own. Another comment I have picked up is – there used to be men out there, now there’s only women with dicks, insecure men who can’t decide whether they want to be male or female. That is unfortunately the truth of how women think.

    I’m one of those men who would like to try something new, out of the ordinary, nice and soft lingerie but I can’t do that – I just don’t want to lose my wife. Men are forced to stay away from this field because it gives an impression of a fragile man (because the lingerie he wears is fragile) Imagine seeing a man saying oh sh.t there’s a run in my stocking…

    This subject was what i would call taboo up until about 4yrs ago. I had no idea what to thiink the first time I saw my now husbasnd in panties. It didn’t take long before I saw the benefits of this. He felt sexy and slightly feminine and it turned our sex into something that was nothing less then immaculate. It’s increased from occassionslly to almost everyday, but what more does girl want than two wardrobes of panties and an excellent shopping partner.

  • Dean: October 12, 2017

    I love to wear lingerie, my wife and I are same size so I would buy her something cute and sexy and then I could wear it too. Panties, nighties, bras, teddies what ever I could find that made my loins tingle when I saw it. She hates g-strings so I would purposely buy a set with one and she would tell me to wear it. She has bought me panties for me and I love her for it, and have worn the out and for my own special private time/play. I do love a little feminine type of panty of any kind of fabric, and I do love the items you have her.

  • Dustin Nichols: October 10, 2017

    My wife likes it when I wear panties and gets turned on by it. Before we discovered sites like this one, she would have me wear hers out and about.
