Men Stop Buying Women’s Underwear and Swimwear

men stop buying women's underwear and swimwear

Really do I need to say more then the title. As a warning this is going to be more of a rant post. I’m tired of reviews on women’s underwear and swimsuits being from men. Get with the times. There are bikinis and thongs designed for men. Lots of styles out there to choice from.

Now if it is a fetish or cross dressing then I can let that slide. But reviews stating they can’t find a men’s swim thong since the Speedo thong need to learn how to search the Internet. Or modifications need done for a guy is just ridiculous to put in a review of women’s underwear or swimwear. Of course it would fit better if modified. It wasn’t created for you to wear. And yes you should be embarrassed when asked where you got a swim thong that isn’t intended for a man.

I’ve read if you turn them around they are great for men or wear them backwards. Um, really. Much easier buying a pair of men’s bikinis or thongs that are meant to hold the package and doesn’t need worn backwards. I can’t believe some actually go to the store to try them on. Wonder what the sales people really think. Also surprised at the ones that mention their wives. I mean I’ve heard from guys that get a hard time from their wives when wearing bikinis and thongs made for men. I know someone mentioned having fun wearing matching panties with their wife before in the comments of my blog. That’s an interesting thing, but I’d prefer to try to match my underwear to hers by finding some made for men in a similar color and style.

Now if you really want to wear women’s underwear or swimwear go for it. I just get tired of reading reviews from men when looking at options for my wife. I mean one pair had probably 25% of the reviews from guys. Maybe it is just me that feels this way.

    I remember a comment from a guy on here a while ago saying how much he liked wearing women’s underwear. For him,it was definitely a fetish, rather than a case of not being able to find a male equivalent. My reply to him was that while I had no issue with his desire to wear female undies,the fact is that if every guy was to do the same,the bottom would quite literally fall out of the men’s underwear market that we ALL need to support as best we can!
    Nate is absolutely right about female thongs not being a good fit for guys. If you need proof,you only have to check out various YouTube clips of guys having a laugh at parties by cavorting about in an obviously made for a female thong with most of their junk hanging out the sides.
    Hopefully none of the cross dressing followers of this forum will take offence at any comments posted on here,but it is important to stress the need to promote the wearing of skimpy undies made specifically for men!

    Right you are Nate- there are all kinds of websites featuring more styles of men’s underwear some of it very feminine. I’ve seen bra & panty sets, garter belts for men, even stuff that’s more of a costume than underwear. Myself I like g strings that look like they’re for men, and string bikinis-of course there’s people that think what I like is feminine I’m sure- they should see the above mentioned websites !!

    Before the days of internet shopping, when all you could buy in the way of underwear was from stores, the selection of thongs for men was almost nil. Back in those days I bought a few women’s thongs, and they were purged immediately. Absolutely no support! In the early 2000’s I received a catalog in the mail that advertised specialty catalogs that you could order. That is where I sent away for a Prevail Sports catalog, and have been a big fan since. With the internet being a great tool for finding anything you may need, it is fun to look at the many sites dedicated to selling sexy men’s thongs and bikinis. The manufacturers of man thongs/bikinis understand the wonderful feeling of a proper fitting pouch–something women’s panties could never do.

    I’ve learnt something then. I thought the aim of the cross-dressers was to wear women’s underwear unmodified, with the aim being the challenge of wearing it or for sexual stimulation. The one who responded to a previous post was prepared to give us a list of brands of women’s panties that could hold the bits in, suggesting that at least some cross-dressers want unmodified items.

    For me I want the support and cover that men’s styles give. It’s not like the men’s stuff is way more expensive than the women’s range, so buying women’s can hardly be a money saving exercise.

      Not sure what cross dressers actual goals are and if the reviews were from any of them. The ones I signaled out to me seem like they probably wouldn’t be. Cross dressers might go the route that EJ mentioned about actually going with feminine underwear or sets made for men. Guess we’ll have to let a cross dresser fill us in on the subject.

    Years ago I tried on 1 of my wife’s bikinis- it was way too anatomically wrong I couldn’t get it off me fast enough. If it wasn’t for underwear manufacturers making the ‘good stuff ‘ for guys, I’d be wearing boxer briefs all the time

    For larger-framed men like me, finding men’s bikini, string bikini and thong underwear is difficult. There are not many clothing manufacturers that make anything that will fit a man with hips exceeding 40 inches (100 centimeters). Lately I have been buying my men’s underwear from manufacturers in China because I can find things that I like and that actually fit me and are affordable. That is the other issue that I have with most men’s underwear I have worn women’s panties in the past, but only because there were no men’s alternatives in my size available for sale at the time. I am a large man and men’s clothing/underwear manufacturers generally do not make anything in the way of thongs, bikinis & string bikinis that will fit me. It’s very hard to find anything above a 38-40 inch waist. And if you do, you’re going to be paying $25+ for ONE brief. That is unacceptable to me and I cannot justify paying that much for one bikini or one thong! And the panties that I wore were not feminine-looking at all, usually neutral colors (black, white, beige, etc), no lacy edges, ruffles or bows. I have been to the gym with friends and wore panties in the locker room and they didn’t know because I didn’t wear feminine-looking underwear.

    If you had to choose between boring, mundane boxer shorts, boxer briefs, or big, full-cut Y-front briefs that look like a big diaper OR wearing panties that would pass for men’s bikinis, string bikinis and thongs, which would you choose? I would rather wear panties that are passable as men’s underwear.

    However, the most comfortable panties out there are made by Jockey. there line of “No Panty Line Promise” panties are stretchy and comfortable and can pass for men’s bikinis. And the best thing about them is that they are made of tactel, which is very stretchy and accommodates the male anatomy very well, even well-endowed men will be amazed how well they fit!

      You are right that sizing options in bikinis and thongs for men is lacking in the larger sizes. Which leads to having to spend a pretty penny for custom made or go with mainstream underwear. I’m with you not wanting to spend $25+ for a pair of underwear. I don’t think we’ll get the prices women can get theirs for without going the China route. Glad you were able to find options from China.

      Like I said it was more a rant post. My guess most of the reviewers would have been able to find their size in men’s underwear and swimwear. Specifically the swim thong I mentioned. It wasn’t available in larger sizes. Thanks for enlighten everyone on your experience with the lack of men’s bikini and thong options for larger framed guys.

        With me, it’s more about the styles than the fact that some of my underwear collection are women’s panties. I love string bikini and thong styles and when I see a nice string bikini or thong that grabs my attention, I want it, and it doesn’t matter if it’s made for a man or a woman to wear. None of the panties that I own have frilly lace or bows or ruffles and scalloped edges. The panties I wear are totally passable as men’s bikini and thong underwear. I don’t have any pink or purple panties or any floral patterns. Most panties include neutral color options (red, blue, black, white, green, etc.).

    I think everyone has the right to wear what fits them and make them fill happy. I am man who has both mens thongs ,and mens bikinis all from prevailing sports. Now I have switched over to womens thongs and bikinis, because I have been buying them at the salvation army stores , community add and the Goodwill store on the cheap . I have found the gold mine in bikini bottoms for women for $5.00. up to $ 7.00 . And they look like a speedo. I had women tell my that she like my speedo she was happy to see me in on. She had know ideal it is not on. Men get a chance a go to those stores and shop there you will see what I am saiding.
