First, thank you so much for reading our guide and showing interest in our line of Fancy Satin Panties! Before starting our own Panty brand, we never imagined that this was such a big topic and that so many Men enjoy wearing women’s Panties. This information is intended both for the Men who enjoy wearing Panties, and the women who Love them.
Since we are both very detail oriented, we did lots of homework on this subject. Now we don't want you to think we are being judgmental, these are just facts. A variety of polls and studies show that about 3-5% of purely heterosexual men regularly wear women’s lingerie for pleasure. These studies also show that these men on average: have higher IQs, make more money, are more successful, are more loyal to their wives/girlfriends, are much less likely to cheat, and are more heterosexually oriented than non-panty-wearing men. Very nice!
If you are on Twitter, check us out at https://twitter.com/katielaurapanty, for some reason our Twitter has become the #1 place where men with a passion for wearing Panties like to hang out with us. (okay, maybe that's a bad choice of words LOL) Lots of men wear Panties in secret, and feel embarrassed and isolated. Well that's understandable, but at the same time just plain silly. Wear what you enjoy.
We started our business to create the types of Panties that we wanted to buy, but could no longer find for sale. All of our Panties are designed for women in standard women’s sizing. We do not make men's Panties. However, shortly after opening our Panty Shop, our Fancy Satin Panties became Very Popular with men who prefer to wear women's Panties. ?? Hmmm... Why?... We couldn't come up with a reasonable explanation why these men would all be shopping with us, so after much speculation and debate, we gave up and just asked them! It seems that our Lovely Panties are uniquely popular with men because our stretchy soft fabrics, real elastics and classic styles (with nice front coverage) allow everyone to enjoy the fit and feel of Fancy Satin Panties.
Sizing? This seems to get Men flustered more than anything else. I would guess that Panty shopping could easily be filled with disappointment for most Men since the majority probably shy away from the lingerie fitting rooms. I know for myself and most other women, 90% of what I bring in the dressing room stays in the store. After all, our own Panty disappointments led us to create our own brand! So this is super simple: Men choosing a Katie & Laura Panty size should order the same size they would at the most popular stores! or follow the waist measurement chart recommendations below (completely ignore the hip measurements.) This is a good starting point, you may need to go up or down a size depending on the style you choose and your body type, but we will happily exchange sizes to give you the Perfect Panty fit! We do not play the “vanity sizing” game that most manufacturers are doing these days (making sizes bigger and labeling them as smaller, etc..) so many people find our Panty sizing to run a little smaller than most brands. When in doubt choosing your Katie and Laura's Panty size, order the larger size. Well, what are you waiting for :)
Oh no sweetheart, we only have real Panties for you! All of our Panties are designed for women in standard women’s sizing. We do not make men's Panties.
Styles! What is the Best Panty style for Men to wear? We constantly get asked this question. That is just a matter of your personal choice and taste. With our stretchy soft fabrics, real elastics, and nice front coverage all of our styles will give men the coverage, comfort and support to enjoy wearing our Katie and Laura's Fancy Satin Panties all day!
Gusset? Standard 100% cotton gusset linings for cool comfort in colors to match the stretch satin. No, we don't make special panties with wide gussets for Men, but our lovely stretch satin is very accommodating for all body types.
Will we ever make Panties designed just for Men? No, we know absolutely nothing about men's underwear except that it is horrid LOL.
Will we ever use male models? No, that would misrepresent our products. Some companies do make "female-looking lingerie designed to be worn by men" but this is not us, and we do not want to create confusion or disappointment.
Are we just trying to sell Panties to men? If 3-5% of men wear Panties and 100% of women do, why in the world would we go after the 3-5% ? that would be a horrible business decision. Actually, we probably lose some women shoppers by expressing our opinions, and by openly defending what is "taboo" to a minority. So in reality, we are probably hurting our overall sales, but this page is about doing the right thing. Besides, being honest and kind to a lot of sweet lovely people makes us feel really good about our Panty Shop :)
Sorry men, with real elastics come real Panty Lines. Now while it is true that looser fitting Panties will give less visible Panty Lines, this just might compromise the support you need to be comfortable. If Panty Peek on the back side is a concern for you, mind your colors, and I would recommend trying our Princess Panties instead of our Hipsters, since our Princess Panties have less rise in the back by about an inch or so. But then again the Princess elastics are notably more feminine in appearance if they do peek out of your jeans, so it might be a toss-up between "caught being girly" or "caught being very girly." We are allowed to tease you just a little bit ;) But do use caution in sensitive situations. Stretch satin is very slippery, and none of our Panties are low cut, so without a tucked-in shirt our Panties tend to be attention seeking. Black Hipsters might get overlooked, but Hot Pink Princess Katie Panties will not! We also should mention that our Hot Pink Panties will show through some white shirts, and most white shorts/pants. We think "sharing what you're wearing" should be a conscious decision, not a surprise situation.
We get lots of questions about what girls think etc… We are not relationship experts, but if someone loves you, really loves you, then a desire to wear Panties should not be an issue.
Hopefully, your girl will happily embrace your Panty preferences! But sometimes she’s not in love with the idea, and then men need to be respectful of women’s wishes too. Some girls may be hesitant or reluctant to overtly participate in your Panty wearing. If so, shopping online together is probably more comfortable for her than taking you Panty shopping at the mall. Be flexible, if she loves or hates a color/style, then let her do some choosing for you. Occasionally slipping on the Panties she selected will probably not kill you. Probably.
Some women have the same “what if somebody finds out!” reflex, that many Panty wearing men have. Decisions to keep your Panty preferences private vs. public should always be made together, just like any other aspect of your sex-life details. If you both wish to stay discrete, here are a few tips: wear Black or White colors when out on the town, tuck in those shirts when appropriate, and real women's panties in the laundry will be assumed to be "hers" while most of those "panties made for men" are quite obviously "his." Her friends seeing your Panties is like your friends seeing her bare breasts: if you both agree on it, then it is okay! But she should not be telling her friends without your agreement, and you shouldn’t be either. It's just common mutual respect.
Once she comes to realize how much simple sexy fun Panties can create, she just might start surprising you! When you have the right girl, she will see that your Panty preferences are just another easy way to share your Love for each other.
Girls, if you are reading this because of a special man in your life, then he has trusted you with the deepest and most personal part of his being, something very precious, and I am happy for you both!
During the past few years, we have had the unique opportunity to have private conversations with so many men on this sensitive subject. We feel compelled to share what we have learned, how important it is to him, and how hard it can be for him to tell you.
So my advice to the ladies: If you know your man likes wearing Panties then take full advantage of this little gem. So easy to wrap him around your little finger, it's almost not fair! Soon, you may Love it more than he does. HaHa! He's a keeper, and now you know exactly how to get anything you want. Too many women take the "try to ignore it" approach and are sadly missing out on a wonderfully intimate opportunity. It is such a simple little key to his heart, use it and he will Love you to the end of time.
PS. While this article is addressed to a very small segment of our customers, I mean no disrespect and have great personal fondness for our male customers. We are just trying to have fun and help people be happy and feel good about themselves and their lovers. If any of this offended you, I am truly sorry. When we are joking around, we are laughing with you, never at you. Our male customers are just some of the sweetest people we know, and I wish them all the Love and Happiness they deserve. Being accepted is so very important, and we absolutely accept and embrace you as someone who appreciates the Loveliest parts of life.
