Is lingerie designed for men just “feminised drab?” And therefore wearing it is not cross dressing?

“Trans” “posed” from an earlier post , (boom Tish)
to Stephanie Plumb and anyone else who read my post above.
As we say in the Australian Parliament, “Point of Order Mr Speaker”.
My post was intended to highlight how Her Room assists our community in selecting and wearing lovely femme frillies and in turn how they deserve our custom. (I spent a few shekels not so long ago all the way from OZ. Service and garments, top notch.)
Anything else in the post was just a general observation on what else is out there. I was neither advocating or dismissing any particular brand or website.
Plus, I’m yet another who definitely prefers femme lingerie and was not all that happy with the few Homme Mystere branded pieces I bought

For me my entry point to CD was the feel of the fabrics used in “female” underwear and whilst you can get some “male” underwear in fabrics such as nylon, polyester etc. It is nearly always thicker, bulkier, and much more expensive quite aside from them being boring in terms of colour and design. Also the designers of such “men’s” underwear seem to have a fixation on all men being particularly well endowed and that “men” want tshe accommodation of their junk to be emphasised.
My desire of ” women’s” clothing has gone beyond underwear and to find say dresses intended for men is so niche and high end design that it would be absurdly expensive.
In one sense it could be said that when a dress, nightie, etc.is being designed for a man to wear it does cease to be crossdressing. The thing is that there is a spectrum of reasons why all of us here crossdress and the availability of dresses and lingerie designed for “men” would fail to meet the needs of a large proportion of us even if does does technically match some of the reasons for us having started with crossdressing.

I don’t know if I could actually bring myself to purchase, much less try-on, ‘feminized drab’. I admit that I do own one pair of camo Capri’s for working in my yard when it is too hot for jeans and too cool for shorts, and maybe running to the convenience store occasionally. And I do agree with Linda Rose, in store shopping wins hands down over online, and not just by the smells and interactions with SA’s and other shopper’s. On-line can be a good place when you can’t find it locally, but you also miss the act of feeling the material on your skin when you find a store with their changing rooms still open.

I cannot comment if lingerie for men is considered CDing or not; but like everyone else has mentioned, I only buy women’s clothing. To me, buying women’s clothing designed for men just doesn’t sit right with me.

I believe shopping for clothing is part of the joy of owning/wearing it. When I buy any article of clothing, I will only shop in the woman’s dept. I also prefer brick-and-mortar over online, for the sheer (no pun intended. I lied. Yes, pun was intended) joy of interacting with real people. I also like “department store smell”, and some of the high-end retailers in my area somehow make their lingerie depts smell of perfume, which is a big turn-on for me. Maybe they put perfume in the ventilating system or something. Those yummy fragrances are something your computer cannot produce, at least not yet anyway. Give them time. In this day and age, anything’s possible.

I have to agree with Kay. I do not want feminized clothing for men; for me, that’s kind of a step backwards in ( my ) acceptance of myself. I want what I deserve to wear, and what I should wear. Feminine clothing. 🙂

Hi Stephanie It does show that there is a market for more feminine designed clothing for men. Your point is well taken. My daughter calls the way i dress ” stylish” . I take to mean just a more feminine way of dressing. Maybe the word “cross dresser” is on its way out. I would not mind, there is just to many letters in the word anyway.
