Lace Underwear – For men or not?
When we say the word lace, what comes to your mind? Is it, OMG it’s so sexy on a guy. Or, please god no it’s too girlish. I doubt very few of you say “I don’t have an opinion.” It seems no matter what you think about the topic, most guys have an opinion. So we are going to explore the world of lace. What better holiday than Valentine’s Day to do it !
Lace underwear for men have become popular in the last 6 years. Before 2010, I don’t remember seeing much of it on the market. There were fetish pairs but nothing in the “mainstream” of men’s underwear. Brands such as Candyman, BodyAware, Male Power and MaleBasics have become the brands producing lace underwear for men. The best thing is each one has their own individual style when it comes to lace.
Why is lace becoming so popular? I would say guys are allowing themselves to try more fabrics and styles. We no longer are getting boxed in to boxers! (yeah that’s a bad pun but I had to go with it). Briefs, bikinis, jocks and thongs are now all acceptable for guys to wear. Lace can make you feel super sexy, now bare with me non lace guys. I hear many of you going, “come on Tim, I want underwear for men, and if I wanted lace pick up a pair of women’s underwear.” Yes you could do that but lace underwear for men is made for men.
How is it made for men? The lace pairs on the market have a pouch and room up front. If you have seen women’s underwear there is nothing up front for support for a guy. The cuts are perfected for a guy. Most pairs I have seen have been bikinis, thongs and some boy shorts. Yes, I have tried lace underwear. I did a review of the Male Power Lace Bikinis and I was surprised how much I liked them. Will I wear them every day? Nope but for an occasional wearing it’s all good.
Lace underwear is for Fem guys or gay guys? This is not true. Lace underwear is a really interesting set of guys who like it. It’s not all gay or all straight. It’s a mix of both. There are gay guys who are like “Hell no I won’t wear that.” While there are straight guys who are like “I love how sexy they are.” It’s basically a cross section of all guys into undies.
I don’t care Tim I won’t wear lace underwear! If you say this, I may not change your mind on the issue. As guys I think we all need to try different styles when we can. Why get locked into one specific style or fabric. UNB has taught me there are things I think I won’t like, that I turn out loving.
