How To Look Hot As A Man In Lingerie

Updated on October 13, 2009

It turns out hot people are normal too...

Looking good in lingerie can be a challenge for men and women. The scanty nature of most lingerie ensures that vast swathes of flesh are exposed to the eyes of onlookers, which means that there is little to hide the flaws which everyone possesses. For some, the battle to look good in lingerie may seem to be a loosing one, but do not lose hope. You can look hot in lingerie, no matter what you look like!

Smoke and Mirrors

Looking good is quite often about smoke and mirrors. So much so, in fact, that in modern times we have come to accept competely false ideas of what people actually look like to the point where even super stars need truckloads of make up and a lighting specialist to appear to even a little like they do on screen.

Looking good in lingerie is something like this. You want to accentuate the positive and minimize the negative. For women, this can often mean making a big deal of cleavage, for men, it's usually all about the legs.

Leggy Lingerie

If you want to look and feel good in lingerie, I'd recommend that you shave your legs. It's not just that it looks more feminine, it actually feels better too. Removing leg hair results in a silky smooth sensation when anything brushes against your legs, even jeans. Imagine what lingerie will feel like as it moves across your smooth skin.

If you have varicose veins or other types of blemishes, try a pair of pantyhose or a stocking and garter set. Wearing these items will ensure that onlookers admire the shape and tone of your legs rather than find themselves distracted by nature's clunky artistic efforts to decorate your body.

A Problem Tummy

The stomach can be a problem area for both men and women. Fortunately, there are three kinds of lingerie you can use to minimize the appearance of a portly belly.

Push Up

Push up bras will work for men as well as women. If you want the appearance of sensual cleavage, then don't avoid the padded bras that women use to their advantage. Drawing attention to cleavage minimizes the amount of attention available to a less than perfect midsection.

Cover With Camisoles

The camisole is a life saver for men and women who have yet to get started on their regeime of 300 sit ups per day. A loose fitting camisole will draw attention to your chest, and conceal your midriff quite effectively.


If you want to rein your tummy in and create a waistline, a corset looks glamorous and is sure to do the job. A word to the wise, be realistic when choosing a corset size and don't lace it too tight. It is important to remain comfortable at all times whilst wearing lingerie, if you get to the point where you're in pain and think you might be about to pass out, then you're probably missing the point.

      Hey Lamorak, I can't approve this comment as it is because it makes overt reference to the male member (yes, it is a wee bit silly, but this is a family friendly venue and I must bow to the rules in order to publish here and have these articles get the exposure they get,) if you want to edit it a little and resubmit, then please feel free. I can email it to you if you'd like.

      Regarding the hair thing, plenty of men shave their legs and I would say at your age, your parents have very little say over why you would shave your upper legs. Would they really have any interest either?

      Grammar/spelling nazi: "but do not loose hope" should be "but do not lose hope".
