The World's Best Cities For Men In Lingerie

Updated on October 12, 2009

Mayte, yer won't believe how much this silk thong is riding up, mayte...

Ever wondered if there was a better place to live? A place where men wearing lingerie would be accepted? Well, I did a little research, using search volume as an indicator of interest in various items of lingerie for men, and the results may surprise you.


If you're chap who likes to wear bras, you'll probably feel most at home in Sydney (Australia, London (UK), or New York (USA), the three cities with the largest search volumes for this term. Coming up behind Australia, the UK and the USA are India and Canada.


According to Google Trends, the largest search volume for the term 'mens panties' actually comes out of New Zealand, a country of around four million people. Even the similar term 'panties for men' shows New Zealand as coming second only to Ireland. The US comes third to these panty friendly countries.

The top three US cities for men who like to wear panties:

  • Phoenix, Arixona
  • Orlando, Florida
  • Denver, Colorado

In the UK:

  • Milton Keynes
  • Birmingham
  • Brentford

Mens Lingerie

When we get general and search for 'mens lingerie', New Zealand once more tops the charts, followed by Australia, South Africa and Ireland.

What's the moral of the story here? Apparently being an ex British colony is very favorable for fashion equality.


Pantyhose changes the picture entirely however, the largest searches for pantyhose for men being Canadians, Americans, the Finnish and Russians. The city with the highest search volume for this term on a global scale is Chicago, Illinois. Well, who would have thought?'


The term 'stockings for men' returns us to a more familiar pattern, the UK wins this one by a mile, followed by the US, Australia and Canada. The big three cities for stockings for men worldwide are Birmingham, Brentford and Manchester. The colonials might love the nuts and bolts of bras and panties, but the Brits just can't get enough of their stockings.


Overall, the countries with the largest male lingerie wearers appear to be New Zealand and those convicts across the ditch in Australia. This is especially true given the relative low population of these countries when compared to larger nations. Aside from the Southern Isles and continents, the UK and USA are also pretty good places to live if you happen to be interested in wearing lingerie, just stick to urban centers and you'll probably be right.

      Regarding Pantyhose: I believe that the UK term for this garment is "tights" (yes, even if they are sheer to the waist.)

      This will of course skew the data: Pantyhose data will point toward countries that speak American, while a Tights search will point toward countries that speak English.

      And "Men In Tights" will point toward Mel Brooks' 'Robin Hood.'

      Maleinheels you hit it,, as a cd the old dbl standard su@#.

      But I guess thats the way it will be for a while,, sad,very sad. How can we as pepole hope for peace in the world when something as trivial as this subject divides us. Makes me wonder about there senserity at all. Guess thats why I am single,,, can't handle 2 faced ppls.

      Thanks for the place to vent. This is a very loaded subject for me and I just get SO mad about it.

      (calmly steps daintily off soap box)

      Living on the west coast of the USA, one would think that we might just have a little more freedom to exercise our own brand of freedom. You know hippies, gays, bi and lesbians and the like. Well not so. Especially when you figure that I come from a very rural area. It amazes me that I can see women sporting traditional male haircuts, wearing three piece suits to the office, jeans, coveralls and the like. All sociably ok fine by everyone. But now let a man be seen in heels (OMG), or a skirt, or even wearing stockings (nylons) and the whole moral fabric has come undone. How is it that women who have always had the power over men in the first place can sit on their trouser encased butt and look down their noses at men wanting the same freedom to choose what they want to wear? I myself would love to be able to go out in public in a nice lace pair of panties (better support) a cute little mini, garters and stockings, topped off with a pair of heels to die for. Throw in a nice bra and a semi sheer blouse and well I know I would feel sexy, be much cooler in the warm weather and just plain more comfortable. But if I was to do that now I would be labeled a cross dresser (are women that wear pants a cross dresser?), and that I must be gay, or at the very least bi. When in fact, I'm none of that. My GF, thank goodness understands my fetish and let's me dress how I want and supports me in all respect. So is it up to the men to change the moral fabric of clothing or is it the womens job to be just as understanding of us as we were of them when they wanted to wear the pants in the family?

      I find it very unfair, the fact that women who have been crossdressing all their lives find it disgusting that men enjoy wearing womens clothes. The hypocracy is unbelievable. It seems that all women believe that trousers are unisex, yet they were disigned for men. All females should remenber this before commenting

      That's a very real possibility Mikki, although the number of NZ commenters on these hubs suggests that they are statistically heavily represented anyway. Also, you have to keep in mind that the advertisement in which men wore lingerie was concieved of and carried out in NZ, which suggests a certain openness to the idea (albeit tongue in cheek in this case.)

      I wonder if New Zealand tops the list becasue the great hoax video about interviewing male models for a fictitious company that was selling mens lingerie. It must have had huge number of hits it was so authentic. I expect mant latent panty wearers still fsearch and find this add; beliveing it to be true.

      I am curious about where you got your list of lingerie friendly cities in the US and how that was calculated?

      Your research excludes countries that don't have english as their first language (e.g. Germany or france), therefore you can't know if there are countries which are even more into lingerie for men than the ones you stated here.

      Apart from that, great work!

      Orlando? Who would have though that all those guy "cast members" working at the Mouse House with their strict dress codes would be wearing panties. I guess that puts a little extra "Magic" in a visit to the Kingdom.

      I live in New Zealand and I would not have thought we would have even got a mention! So, there's a lot more guys out there wearing panties and bras than anyone suspects!

      I guess it goes to show just how secret and covert this men's fashion revolution has been (and still is - for the moment).
