Not in my wildest dreams did I ever believe I would be attracted to and enchanted by wearing women’s underwear. Nothing sexual, mind you. The fact is I enjoy wearing women’s panties under my male apparel almost all day, almost every day.
When I was a youngster, I remember the white, starched underwear which was worn by every boy I knew. White was it!!! By the time I was in high school, men’s underwear came in colors and when I was in college, multi-colored boxers were the rage.
Men’s underwear is ugly and bland and in many instances do not hold what is needed to be held comfortably in the right position. Women’s panties are much different, ranging from the basic cotton style to silky, sheer, thongs and bikinis, just to name a few. I have come to find that having an assortment of styles is perfect for my lifestyle.
As I said earlier, wearing women’s panties is a choice and not sexual. As a long-time cross dresser, I have always wore women’s undergarments when dressed en femme. It’s like wearing a bra…an essential part of a wardrobe. But I never thought I would be regularly wearing women’s panties and can only thank a dear (unnamed for this article) friend for convincing me to “take the challenge” and make the change.
It all started a few years ago in a Seattle area motel room. My CD friend met me for an evening outing of dinner, dancing and fun with some of the local girls. Being a conservative dresser, I had usually worn the regular cotton undies when dressed, but that night was different. My friend brought me a gift, a pair of light blue/grey bikini panties.
“Try them on,” she said as we were dressing. “I brought a pair for all the girls tonight.”
As my friend and I were getting ready, I noticed he was wearing a similar pair. I was still in my boxers.
“Get rid of those,” she insisted. So, I threw them in the closet.
Hesitantly, I tried on the bikini panties. After a small tucking adjustment, they fit perfectly and felt so good against my skin. The more I wore them, the more I liked them. I don’t know why, but I did. I felt more comfortable wearing the feminine style and everything was compact and not hanging where it should not be hanging.
The following day, I went, en femme of course, to the lingerie department at a Bellevue Mall big box store and picked up another six pair of panties in different styles and colors. I could not believe the assortment available to women.
I now have various panties…bikinis, cotton and sheer briefs and one very special bra and thong to wear depending on my mood and style.
I try to rotate which style I’ll wear depending on my male attire and oddly the weather. If it is cold, I will wear my cotton briefs; if it is warm or during the summer months, I’ll probably wear my bikinis under my short pants, and if I wish to feel a little adventurous, I may wear my silky semi-bikini briefs. I usually save my thong for “ladies night” to complement with my pantyhose, thigh highs or gartered hose.
My male underwear now languishes in my bedroom dresser to be worn on very rare occasions.
