Hi Ladies, I try as much as possible to wear knickers that match my bras. It’s not always possible but I love to wear colour coordinated bras and knickers. Does anyone else like to wear matching undies?
- February 16, 2019 at 12:57 am #153575
A “variation on the theme”, if I may be so bold!
It has always bemused me that, (especially the big department stores), never advertise “the subject of this post”, as “underwear”.
It’s always “intimate apparel” or “lingerie”. Nothing so plain or crass as “underwear”!
When in male mode of course we come back to earth with an almighty thud!
At least here in “Oz”, its “socks and jocks” Jockey being a well known brand of “undies” for both genders.
But at least for me tonight, I’m having a lovely time in my “intimate apparel”. Breast forms attached, , (Fayreform) bra holding them “just right” , panties, silk cami and a lovely lacy half slip I’ve had for the best part of 30 years.

Yes you’re 100% correct. Femme undies are always intimates or lingerie – must be the psychology of marketing or some such thing.
I do hope that you enjoyed your time in your “intimates & forms”. I know I certainly enjoy mine which I wear at some point every day (normally the evening after work & all day at weekends). I’m not sure what my forms are made of, silicon rubber I think. This makes them quite firm but I am able to keep them on all night without the risk of bursts though they dont jiggle as much as polyurethane covered sillicon jel. Can’t have everything I guess.
I love the feel of pure silk, I have several pairs of frenchies made from silk and the feeling is just so decadent and sexy. I think that every dresser should have at least one pair of pure silk panties. As I’m a stockings fan, I tend to wear one of my suspender/garter belts underneath. I should have bought a matching bra in silk but missed out on that (due to the expense) but might have to try and find one that matches in the near future – if my breasts were natural that would feel amazing – Cest la Vie.
I also have some silky half slips which are great. My personal fav is a cream number and comes to just above the knee, fits quite tight and has a split up one side to about groin level and has a lace trim round the hem and up the slit. I do tend to go for cotton though for no other reason than I love the feel of crisp cotton. I like to wear a flouncy multi level petticoat / slip with a ditsy pattern skirt and the hem of the patticoat showing by about an inch below the hem of the skirt. To me its such a sexy look.
Enogh of my waffle!
Take care Caty / everybody

Hi I just wanted to add matching sets always do it for me, recently though I needed some new knickers so I looked in the NEXT sale and yes I could not get any matching sets ( I am a 36B and a size 12 ) in my size but at least I could get the knickers at a good price.

I’ve just begun cross-dressing and haven’t got matching bra and panties, although I do own several pairs of bra’s and panties. I’m sure I will be color coordinating as I continue to develop and wardrobe.

As you will no doubt discover, this dressing thing that we participating is a bitter-sweet activity. There is the excitment at the risk, the thrill of the clothes and the feeling is out of this world. The of course is the guilt and the purging that comes with dressing, particularly in the earlier years of this very particular and in some respect “unusual hobby” (though it is more prevalent that one might expect).
Now that you have bitten by the bug though, there is simply no going back. If you havn’t already try nylons (and particularly full fashioned stocking, yes they are expensive but just sooo worth the cost) with legs closely shaved legs – the feeling is a must experience.
Most of all, enjoy your time ‘en-femme’
take good care girls.

I like to color coordinate what I’m wearing…..
- February 16, 2019 at 8:59 am #153653
I like to think of myself as a sophisticaed and snappy dresser.
Naturally therefore, this means coordinating what I wear from my underpinnings through to myouter wear and yes I love to colour coordinate what I wear.
Take care girls

As often as I can I try to have my bra and panties match. Most of mine are black so it’s easier, but I have some fun colored panties that don’t nesecarily match a specific bra.

Ah does me good to see an Aussie company doing well overseas, with folks buying from Homme Mystere.
I too have purchased from them in the past and whilst I certainly respect anyone’s decision to buy from them, as they do have some lovely lingerie pieces, but .. deep down…. for me its not “the same” as the luxury of “real” female lingerie.
They do how ever have one advantage, their panties are cut for “proper fit”!!!!
As for the “real bras” that may not fit properly, as per other posts, if you are persistent enough, eventually you’ll find a lingerie store that will happily do a fitting for you.
Then everyone, including your “girls” are happy.

Thanx for this Barbara and thank you for the link. I will be sure to check them out – might be a way of being able to wear a bra when in drab as my femme bras do tend to show through, particularly through the back.
Take good care

Amazon has some great bras for CDs by Kitchenexus. They’re easily found if you search for ‘bras for CDs’ I like them a lot – they come in black or beige and they have little hidden pockets for breastforms. These colours are easily matched. For other colours, I go to M&S because they usually display bras with matching sets of knickers instore and together. Not so good for breastforms, though. They fall out easily. With Kitchenexus bras, they don’t. I have to have matching underwear. I feel better, look better and love the splash of colour they create – like magenta or green which are good for blondes like me.

Hi Ladies, thanks for your replies. I’ve done some reading in online magazines about whether knickers should match bras and it seems our views are the same as most womens’ views. We do or we don’t match our underwear for different reasons. This might seem a dumb conclusion but I think we think like women think when it comes to underwear. Any views? Tanya. X

I don’t think it’s necessary. On the other hand, I can’t find matching sets that will accommodate the sizes I need. I have to wear one size bra and another size below. They never match, at least not in style. But I will try to match color. A way out of it, is to wear a bodysuit that eliminates two pieces and fits as one!

I always try to match bra and panties. My base line is that they must be the same color. I wear panties 24/7 (not the same pair lol) and a bra every day but usually not during work hours. I am also addicted to stockings and try to wear either an OBG or on occasion a six strap garter nelt and these must also be in the same colour as my panties and bra.
I have quite a few matching sets of bra, panties and garter belts in both a floral burgundy pattern and a floral pink pattern which I bought online and keep for best.
Speaking of intimates, I used to always wear a soft unpadded bra but quite recently bougjt myself a few underwired versions to give them a try as I had read that these are the ones that work best with forms. OMG! what a difference. Whilst I did enjoy the soft bra’s, the undrrwired ones are something else. Much better support and providong they are the correct size, they ate really comfortable to wear. One concern was that if I wore them without my forms (just my natural breast tissue) they would show through my drab clothing but this has not been a problem – ftom the fromt at least. Bra’s straps generally show through the back but then again, I’m not particularly bothered about people clocking what I’m wearing from the back as I’m there then I’m gone lol.
Take care girls.

Gurl, I hear you on the outfits you wear. I only wear either garter belt or OBG with 6 straps. Love Gio stockings from Amazon…CHECK them out!! I get my other needs from Secrets in Lace in Richmond VA…CHECK them out too!
Outer dress is for the public, but underneath is for me!!!
ENJOY Being You…DR. T J .
- February 16, 2019 at 9:14 am #153659
Yes Gio’s are something else aren’t they. A bit pricey but sooo worth the cost for that extra look and feel.
As I’m U.K. based I don’t tend to use US stores much – the customs thing does my head and exchange rates are not what they once were (that unmentionable word I’m afraid !!! C’est la Vie)
Take good care.

I just bought my first matching set from City Chic online. A beautiful floral print. I love them so much, I can’t wait to buy more. But I started a strict diet 5 weeks ago and vowed not to buy anymore clothes until I lost 35 pounds. I’ve already lost 20, so only 15 more to go! I can’t wait to buy another matching set (or 2, or 3, or 4….)

I had to vote a No.
I definitely do not have matching sets and thinking on it now have never looked for a matching set. For me I would be lucky to wear the same color. My bras are specific for the weight of my forms and must work with what I wear whether this is a dress, top or Tee. Since my ass is so small I always wear some type of padded hip and butt pads which are either black or nude. I do have a couple panties which are my fav but they are way different then any of my bras.

hey girls Jessica here,
I try to match as much as possible depending on my outfit. If I’m loafing around the house doing chores and cleaning, then I don’t care. But if I go through the trouble of squeezing into a gorgeous dress and heels ( just got them and OMG what an experience) then I’m matching my underwear. Tanya I do agree, I try not to clash colors whether they totally match or not. And definitely don’t have time for ugly undies!
- February 12, 2019 at 10:23 pm #152837
Matching bras and panties has been a very long standing “must” for me. It’s such a “femme” feeling to do so and makes me feel ever so “girly”. I always try as much as possible to buy the same brand and colour and have largely been very successful, Colour co ordinated slips/half slips/cami’s/garter belts with the above are also a very high priority. The only time this fails is if somehow Caty’s laundry get’s out of “kilt”er….. (Shocking Scottish pun!!)
The above applies to the bras I wear with my forms. It does not work quite so well with the 16a and extender bras I wear when I can “underdress”. Tho I can mostly keep the colours of these in “sync”.
Tho I have more than enough lingerie, when my next makeover comes around in a couple of months, I have just confirmed store in the southern suburbs of Melbourne will do a bra fitting for me “en femme”.
Should work out really well, until someone who would perhaps not to do so, (ie another “real” female client) here’s me open my mouth. I’ll try the “breathless female” bit, but I’m not all that confident it will work!!!
“Watch this space!!”
Happy lingerie shopping,

I’m really envious that you have found somebody to do a bra fitting for you. I would love this because whilst I have learnt how to do a reasonable job of sizing myself I don’t think that one can get anywhere near to the accuracy of a professional fitting. Not only that though it is just so femme to be fitted for a bra given that bra’s are probably the most feminine item of women’s underpinnings.
Take care of the girls.

I like to try to match color and style if I am going out. Since I usually wear black panties and a black bra when going out, that is not a problem. But, sometimes I’ll have a problem such as only being able to match a lacy black bra with a shiny black panty, instead of a matching lacy black panty.
When I am spending the day at home, I don’t worry so much about matching. I have a number of white bras, but mostly colored panties. So, matching in that case is often not possible.
It’s interesting to see how matching is really important to some ladies, but not others. To me, matching is like your mother’s admonition to never leave the house wearing dirty/torn underwear because of the possibility that you might be in an accident! My thought to that advice was that the paramedics better be focusing on saving my life, and not checking out my underwear! 🙂

Well……I try to match up but have many panties of different color and quite a few bras…..but matching sets are hard to come by unless you buy the cruddy stuff!
I just bought bras in colors that would be a close but not exact match. Only I know what I am wearing…..this Lady doesn’t go around flashing her Undies.

I match most of the time but not always. I wear red and black sometimes, you know red bra, and black thong or panties. Maybe black bra and red thong or panties. Mixing things up is more fun.

I have enough trouble finding bras that fit. If I were trying to have matching bra and panties, I probably would none of either.

Have you tried J.D.Williams (U.K. based but will ship overseas at reasonable costs). They are a mail order firm with an online store and whilst not the cheapest store about, they do sell nice stuff, have frequent offers and one can frequently buy matching panties/nickers/thongs with coordinating but seperately sized bra’s and ofter garter/suspender belts.
May be worth a pop (try) if you want a coordinated set that actually fits you.
Hope this helps
Take care girls.

Morning girls, I love matching lace bras and panties. Amazon has great choices as, do, of course, several other sites. I get only unlined bras – or cut the foam linings out so the lace carries my own breasts and falsies better, and nips come through the lace prominently. It’s hard to be pretty outside if you have not dressed pretty underneath. Great survey question.

Thanks Giselle. Its nice to think about lingerie, what to buy and what to wear. I’m underdressing at work today. I read an article about underwear and a quote that I always rember is ” you might be scruffy (or drab) on the surface but you can be gorgeous underneath”. That’s how I feel today! Hugs.

Hi ladies, I do love wear matching lingerie, however when I am in man mode I only wear knickers. This means that my matching undies stay in the drawer until Sandra wants them as I don’t want to wear the knickers out and have a fairly new bra left on its own. x
