If you are reading UNB, chances are you are looking for fun and different underwear. You aren’t the kind of guy that buys the same brand and style year after year. You want to venture out and see what is available to you. Something different, fun, and unexpected. Then give those brands and pairs a try.

For 11 years and many years before that, I have actively followed the men’s underwear industry. I remember when Cocksox first came out and was blown away by the pouch design. It looked like the most amazing undies. Then I remember brands that always designed something different like Mark Ouest (now defunct), Gregg Homme, and Marek & Richard. It was about pushing boundaries and getting guys to try the next thing. Each one of those brands design different types of undies.

When I say lace undies, the first thing that comes to mind to many of you is women’s underwear. Which, in my opinion, there is nothing wrong with that if that’s what you want to wear. I only judge if you wear boxers! However, wearing underwear designed for women can be uncomfortable because it’s designed for women and not men — no pouch to give you support.

Also, one of the advantages of women’s underwear is the different available designs. It has always made me jealous that women have so many choices. While men have relatively small choices, which I admit is changing for the better.

The lace fabric, until recently, has been classified as 100% feminine. No self-respecting guy would even try on anything lace, let alone wear it as underwear. This attitude has been changing. More male brands are creating amazing men’s lace underwear. Some mimic those styles in the women’s market, and others do new things with the fabric and design.

Before we go too far, have I worn lace? Yes, I have, and I felt pretty damn sexy in the bikini I have, and I want to get more! I am of the camp where you should try anything before you discount it, hence, why I run an underwear blog.

In conversations I have had with some guys, they discount the idea of wearing lace from the get-go. Nothing I say will convince them to try it. It’s either “gay” or “fem” and why would I want to wear something that is either of those? My response is no underwear is gay or fem. It’s the perception of the person.

This isn’t the first time in underwear we have heard these complaints. Not long ago, thongs were given these same excuses. Now it’s one of the most popular styles on the market.

Why should you try lace:

  • It’s sexy as hell. It’s like mesh but doesn’t show off everything but gives a hit of skin.
  • It feels fantastic; if you wear the right lace that has stretch and gives, it feels incredible. Notice I said that twice.
  • It’s naughty – It makes you feel like you are wearing something society doesn’t want you to wear. The same can be said about bikinis, thongs, and more.
  • It’s something different, and we should all break out of our box as much as we can

These are why you should try lace undies! Let me know if you decide to break out your box and wear “gay” underwear! JK, give it a try; you may love them. So may your partner!!!
