Having Fun With Bras For Men

Updated on November 30, 2009

Brassieres, ever the domain of the buxom woman, are becoming a popular fashion item amongst male wearers. Why? Well, in some cases, wearing a brassiere provides a man with much needed support (in these modern days of hormone imbalances, significant numbers of men suffer from medical conditions which cause them to grow sufficient tissue to require support from a brassiere.) In other cases, men simply rather like the idea of wearing a brassieres, and why not?

Sometimes I quite like the idea of wearing boxer shorts and a hooded sweatshirt with some jeans and nobody voices any great objection, and in fact, I recently showed up to a Christmas work party wearing pants and a shirt and not one horrified glance was cast in my direction. Why is that? Because as a woman, I can cross dress all I want, but if you're a man, cross dressing is a taboo subject.

I don't think that is likely to change in the short term, which is okay, because if it did change, it would probably suck a lot of the joy that men experience when they wear bras. Oh yes, it is the thrill of breaking the taboo that makes donning a woman's bra so attractive to many men. So, in an amusing twist of ironic fate, it is actually those people who object to the idea of men wearing lovely lingerie who perpetuate the activity.

Bras are pretty pieces of fun for many men, which is nice I think, because unlike women, who must struggle to find the right bra size or be walking around forever falling out of their bras or adjusting straps that insist on digging in, men truly enjoy and embrace the experience of wearing a brassiere and they appreciate the work and care that has gone into a nice piece of lingerie perhaps far more than a woman ever would.

For a man, a bra is a delightful secret treat to be enjoyed, for a woman it is often either simply a matter of comfort and practicality, or alternatively, a trap to trick men into believing that their bosom is more bountiful than it really is.

Women need not be threatened by men who love bras, in fact, men who embrace the feminine so readily are far more appreciative of a pretty woman than those loutish brutes grunting over sports and banging their fists against things to prove how high their levels of testosterone are. For a man who loves bras and lingerie, a woman is an object of beauty to be revered, and that's hardly a bad thing, is it?

Bras for men are fun and should be treated as such. There are too many real horrors in the world to pretend that a guy with a few scraps of silk and lace across his chest is somehow bringing down Western civilization as we know it.

      Following a link on another of Hope's pages, I just discovered the "bralette." This is a great idea for guys who haven't the wherewithal to fill in a normal bra...even an A cup.

      What a great way to still enjoy the feeling of lace on your chest! Check 'em...Google search "bralette"...

      I think the comment of men who appreciate what women go through to be beautiful is true. I love the feeling of satin and silk on my skin there is nothing like it,, other than the touch of a woman directly. I am feminine in my life and love it. The ladies that I know appreciate this and am glad I take the time to take care of my body as well as theirs. And no I am not gay. I am heterosexual and involved with a beautiful woman that has given me two children.

      Hi Dana, I can relate with you. I love the feel of the bras.

      I like your comment mentioning your wife removes her bra when she gets home and the first thing you do is put your bra on. I think some women don't want to be wearing the bras and they can't wait to remove them. I hear these stories too. While for us men, we wear the bras not because we have to, we wear them because we want to and get arroused in the bras and us men think bras are fun garments to wear as well as panties too. I also wear womens panties as well.

      I love the feel of a bra. it's funny, when my wife gets home from work the first things she does is get out of her bra. The first thing I do is get into mine!

      I am a man that has fun with bras. I love wearing them. I am wearing one now as I am writing this post. I think all women should support men like me wearing bras as well as panties that I also wear all the time as well. Hope, I am glad you support men wearing womens/girls bras and womens/girls panties/underwear. Like I mentioned in your other hubs, I do wear bras and girls panties all the time.

      I completely agree with you! Why is it okay for women to wear what ever they like and if a guy walks down the street in a skirt...well you know!
