Do you balk at the word “panties?” Do you think it’s because it’s evocative of something that only refers to female parts? To be fair, maybe you just don’t like that word. But if it’s the former, well, now there is frilly underwear for men! Men will have their own sexy, lacy panties.

Normally, I get my daily dose of horror from The Daily Mail, but this new line of underwear by HommeMystere – which creates teddies, thongs and other traditionally feminine garments for men – sounds great. There’s no reason men should only have to wear boxers when women get a ton of incredibly bizarre stuff. The Daily Mail says:

They specialise in, they say, ‘comfortable men’s panties that really do fit, bra straps that don’t fall off the shoulder, teddies that don’t ride up halfway through the night and quality soft fabrics that feel great for all day wear’. 

The Australian label – which has distributors in the UK and U.S. – say attractive undergarments feel great and make dressing more fun and enjoyable for men.

They say they understand that men want ‘quality lingerie style underwear made with care, attention to detail’ that fits your body perfectly’.

And the FAQ Question on the HommyMystere website addresses who the line is for, saying:

‘We provide our lingerie for guys. We are not concerned if you are gay, straight, vegetarian, republican, anglican, martian or any other persuasion. We just design and manufacture attractive luxury underwear for men.’

They should probably be concerned about the martian market, because I hear those guys have a really weird anatomy, but beyond that, good for them! Men’s underwear has kind of always been a bit depressing and unattractive next to women’s underthings.You go, HommeMystere.
