Finding The Perfect Panties For Men

Updated on October 12, 2009

I've been on a bit of a quest lately to find the perfect panties for men. There's something of a mens panty poll up here, if you'd like to pop over there and leave your own opinion on the matter.

Whilst I am sure that we are going to get some excellent results from this informal study, I still have to admit that there is no such thing as the perfect pair of panties for all men. Men who wear lingerie are
not stamped out on a production line, no, they break all the molds.

So for all men who wear lingerie, there is a quest. The quest to find the perfect pair of panties. A pair of panties that fits just right, that looks just right.

Your perfect panties will depend on your build and body type. For heavily built men who wear lingerie, full coverage in the form of the ironically named "boyshort" may be more comfortable than the grinding of a thong. On the other hand, perhaps the constant flossing is just what does it for you.

In order to determine the what the perfect pair of panties will be for you, you need to ask yourself the following questions:

Why do I want to wear panties? Is it to feel feminine? Is it to look feminine? Is it to feel the smooth silky material against my skin?

If you are simply in it for the feel, the perfect pair of panties may not be a frilly feminine looking pair of panties. A very simple full brief or bikini cut may be all you need. These types of panties will be incredibly comfortable and probably will not break the bank nearly as much as more 'over the top' styles.

Another option for men who love the feeling of lingerie is purchasing panties made just for men. These panties often feature exaggerated feminine detailing, creating a comfortable yet feminine look.

If you want to look more realistically feminine, then a plain pair of nylon panties won't do it. Looking feminine may involve thongs, uncomfortable panty architecture, seams in strange places, mesh panels grazing the skin and other such panty pitfalls. Of course, if you're all about the look, then a little discomfort won't matter.

Of course, as with all things, it is the journey that matters, not the destination. You may not find the perfect pair of panties for men on the first purchase, or the second, or the third, or even the three hundredth, but one can be certain that you are sure to experience all manner of lingerie joys in your quest.

Good luck men.

      I say, what's the use of wearing something if it doesn't fit well? That's why I wear full-cut panties (though I do wear hi-cut, but the gusset isn't as wide usually) and not men's underwear.

      I like the Hi-cut or Freench-cut styles myself. Here in this SC weather I like cottons and microfibers in the heat for work and nylon/spandex for dress. I do love colors, prints, and some waist band or leg lace.

      I find most thongs fit me well and i can choose ones that look sexy too. I love shopping at la senza. right now my favourite pair of panties is actually a low rise cotton spandex cheeky style panty that fits perfectly, while still looking cute in pink with silver accents. its made by the lola and coco branch of la senza and i find that they offer a lot of panties and thongs that are a comfortable fit for everyday and yet still look great in girly colours.

      I like wearing pretty much all types of panties. My favorite is thong, followed then by boy short, bikini. In my opinion the best chain of panties is LaSenza. Why wear mens uncomfortable underwear when you can wear ladies soft and pretty panties.

      Thanks very much. I'll just take your word for it since that makes sense. I may as well respond to this article while I'm here. The perfect panties for me are bikinis, hi-cut briefs, and hipsters. Any of those in Nylon and Satin, but I'll accept cotton as well since girls cotton feels better than mens.

      Hey David,

      Personally, I think tanga panties are boyshorts which only cover half the buttock instead of the whole thing. I could be wrong though, it has been known to happen ;)

      Hope, in a way this doesn't have to do with this article and in another way it does. After all some guys may find that Tanga panties are their favorite or they may be curious to try them...but I am confused. What are tanga panties supposed to be? Some look like bikinis and some look like boyshorts, yet others might look pretty close to a thong, all this depending on the company who makes them. Or is tanga more of a term rather than a particular cut of panty? Most anyone can look at, say, a bikini or a thong and know exactly what kind of panty it is. But as far as a tanga goes, I'm stumped. Help please.

      well I would say that thongs and bikinis are the perfect panties depending on the ocassion

      thongs are for when you want to feel sexy, and depending on who makes them, for comfort too

      but bikinis i guess can be somewhat sexy but are mostly when you want comfort

      so I would say that theres a perfect panty for every time so really it depends on what you want.

      Hope, yet another great post! Pretty much sums me up. I have been on the Perfect Panty quest for several years. I have found some close contenders but not the perfect panty yet. For me I prefer Bikini, Hi-Cut then the Boy Shorts, Nylon or polymide are a must, lace at the legs or waist is a nice touch. Me I am about the feel first, must be soft and silky over that sensitive male part first, must fit good and finally look good.

      Hi Hope I think I have said this before in one of the other hubs but I find that the Triumph range seems to be the best fit for me anyway and also Fayreform lingerie is also a good fit.I personally prefer briefs or bikini panties to most other cuts only prerequisite is nylon and some lace.Love the HUB keep up the good work maybe they will teach this subject at schools so that we can be recognised as normal not some weird pantie wearing male.
