Men in Pantyhose. And Skirts?

Another very popular series of posts on my Gazette blog has been about men who like to wear pantyhose. Here is one of the latest in that series, published on April 10, 2013.

There is no law that I know of that says a man who wears pantyhose must identify as a transgender person or a transsexual person or a woman. And long-time readers of this blog know that a lot of men wear pantyhose, and they do not identify as trans people or women. They don’t identify as cross-dressers, either, and it would be an insult to them to label them as such. They are simply men who like to wear pantyhose. We might all be surprised if we knew just how many guys are wearing pantyhose underneath their pants to work everyday. And why shouldn’t they?

I wonder how many of those guys would wear skirts with those pantyhose to work — if they had the same freedom in clothes presentation that women have. Sadly, men have fewer rights when it comes to clothes. But is the growing popularity of transgenderism helping their cause, or hurting it? Are we getting to the point in Western society at which men who identify as men have to declare themselves to be trans in order to dress in more traditionally feminine garb?

I’d like to hear from the guys who are wearing pantyhose — so many of you have written to me in the past and have had your comments posted in this blog. You are invited now to carry the discussion forward. What say you in response to the questions posed here?

Cheers

  1. The prejudice against men in skirts and pantyhose is nothing but misandry at its worst. It is one example of proof that we, at least in some ways such as fashion, live in what I call a “societal dictatorship.” This is not what true American values stand for. As a classical Liberal (think John Locke), I am a firm supporter of freedom of choice. I have had opponents of fashion freedom call me a “communist.” That is an outrageous slander – they don’t even know what communism is. A communist would LIMIT peoples’ freedom, not expand it.

  2. I would bet that there are a lot of men out there that like to wear hose and tights. I’m one of them. For the record, I am not gay, trans, or a fetishist. I just like the way they look and feel. My wife likes the way they look on me too. I think that if there were some way to let the world know how many like minded men are out there, it would not only surprise everyone, but it might make it easier for men to be open about it.

  3. I agree about prejudice against men that wear skirts and pantyhose, but at the same time, today’s men do have more fashion freedom than they usually choose to exercise.

    I humbly suggest that men are their own worst enemy here. Just wear hosiery, already. The catch is to be subtle and tasteful, just like mature women are when they wear pantyhose. Only young women look “normal” in miniskirts, spike heels and bold tights/pantyhose. Remember, not even genetic women have absolute fashion freedom.

    Wear nude hose under men’s shorts, and keep your legs shaved. Add a pair of ankle or crew socks to your athletic shoes, else wear men’s loafers. Wear hosiery enough so that it feels natural. Wearing just one or two articles of women’s clothing messes with peoples’ minds. They’ll look once and give up. I occasionally wear a denim or khaki skirt out in public, and haven’t gotten anything but compliments.

  4. Men’s clothing are usually unimaginative, boring and lack variety. I have recently started wearing women’s tank tops which are more comfortable, softer to the touch and have a variety of necklines. I particularly like having more skin exposed to sun and air.

    I have long looked with envy at long skirts. Maybe next year.

    I am not meaning to be a crossdresser or transgender.

  7. I wear pantyhose under my pants at work. I work in an office and having them on is like having an all day leg massage. I buy Leggs Sheer Energy usually from one of the big drug store chains and they wear reamarkably well. There are times when I am on the road too all day long and they are great in winter helping keeping my legs warm. Plus I have to admit they make my legs look pretty good.

  8. Hello all. . . . Just another guy here.
    I too love to wear pantyhose. Even at the age of 43. Sad to say just not often enough. In my younger day’s my wife even shared with me my passion for this. Her thought on it was. If im happy doing it and not hurting anyone. Then its ok. I know many say well feels good.
    And yes it does. But for me much more then a feeling. Its the excitment of wearing pantyhose and possible of being caught doing it. The feeling of being sexy Is like no other power. It is in class all by itself.. and being honest. Im so sick of all the crap they try and sell for men. Ohh yea silk boxers honey. Yea me .. not… boring.. or the classic. Here put this on its underwear made to look like an elephant.. come on really.. women like this.
    Lol i sure dont.. just silly.. ohh my favorite here a silk robe.. i dont think so. It’s a brainer for me why i prefer womens clothes.. man crap is just so boring.. why cant a man feel sexy?
    We are human too! We have feeling’s. We have wants and needs just as women do..

  9. This guy in his sixties realized late in his life that clothing commonly marketed as “women’s” is in many ways far superior to that sold as “men’s”.

    Although my work dress is never going to include a skirt or dress, nobody there wears one – not even the females – because of the possibilities of accidental (or otherwise) “inappropriate” glimpses. Even in summer, shorts are allowed but must be no higher than a couple of inches above the top of the knee.

    So much for work clothes in occupations that invariably bring a person into contact with clients. I regard the rules as somewhat prudish, but I am also aware who pays my wages and the fact that, where I live, it’s an employer’s rule that will come before employees’ sense of style or fashion.

    However, away from work it’s a different story. I generally wear a skirt around the house, together with a top… both bought in the “women’s apparel”. But, as my wife will confirm, they might be displayed as women’s clothing but as soon as I buy them they become men’s.

    I love the colors and styles, the lightness of the fabrics, and the easy comfort that I have by wearing them. By “them” I mean anything from underwear to coats.

    I now shave my legs and wear hose (tights, pantyhose, or otherwise) depending upon the temperature outside. I don’t have any feeling of gender confusion or anything like it; I’m just me. The only person whose opinion I value is my wife’s, and she not only accepts my choice of clothes, but actively helps me choose when I need her to.

    I’ve no time for prudes, or the kind of silly prejudice that sees me as queer, gay, transexual, or otherwise less of a human being. Anybody who chooses to wear a particular type of clothing ought to be enabled, not only allowed.

    But this is the United States of America. One of the most prudish and judgmental societies that masquerade under an umbrella of personal rights and freedoms. Sadly.

  11. I haven’t worn socks — unless you count the kilthose I wear under my beloved Frye Campus 14s — in over 18 months. During the cooler months, I prefer tights and knee-highs because they feel lighter, more comfortable and my shoes fit better. Besides they look nicer and I rarely, if ever, need to keep pulling the suckers up. Warmer months see me in sheer knee-highs under trousers at work or I’m generally barefoot.

    I do shave my legs. I think they look better that way — my legs, my choice. And I’ve been doing that since 1998.

    I’m straight. I’m also married. Nevertheless, I have no qualms about riding roughshod over that thing they call the gender boundary. No respect for that thing whatsoever.

    1. Choice for men’s clothing is so limited, so unchanged since the ’20, totally depressing. Unless you’re ready to pay a fortune for fashion designers (Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Rad Hourani… ).
      Pantyhose, silky knee highs, boyshort panties, tank tops, soft long sleeves tees, zipperless jersey tapered trousers, sweaters, fitted leather jacket, even boots. Ballerina shoes, indoors only. A lot nicer, a lot more comfortable. And a lot better designed, not to say always cheaper.

      Women like my attire and seldom gossip, male friends like it, rest of manhood is suspicious!
      Never mind, I feel so good.

It is sad that women have all the fun styles and us guys kinda stuck with dull styles. I have been wearing pantyhose for quite awhile, even in public and no one really notices. So, if you are a little unsure about wearing one, just do it. You will feel good doing it. Again, I enjoy wearing them and will continue to do so. I also wear a lot of women’s bikini panties with pantyhose and sure feels good.

My wife likes them on me, and we have fun with it. I don’t wear anything but normal guy clothes. Pantyhose are just nylon socks for me. I thought there was something very wrong with me for many years. I finally decided to accept myself as I am, and do what I enjoy. I’m not gay, trans, cross dresser or anything like that.

There are a few who can make it work, but I’m not one of them. I have worn skirts at home in the past, but I don’t do it anymore. I wear pantyhose all the time. Even to bed. It’s enough for me to wear the pantyhose with my normal male clothing. Long pants, ripped jeans, shorts, and the like. For me, pantyhose is essential, but everything else is optional.

      I like to wear pantyhose, short shorts, leggings, ect. but beyond that I’m a masculine guy. I go on walks, but not really to stores or restaurants. I don’t usually see too many people, but when I do I try to be friendly. Many people in my neighborhood have seen me wear something strange at some point. Just today, I took out the trash in pantyhose and a mini skirt in daylight (saw nobody). People are usually pretty nice, especially if you are casual about it. It’s about the attitude of the wearer and acting natural about it.

  21. My husband has worn thigh high compression stockings for 2 years. These are men’s prescription stockings recommended buy are family doctor because of the discomfort in his legs. The style of stay up stockings he wears require that he shaves the top of his legs so the stockings stay in place. He asked if he could change to pantyhose to avoid shaving every other day but the same manufacturer don’t make pantyhose for men. The doctor went ahead and did a prescription for the women’s compression pantyhose anyways and my husband now wears and prefers them over the stay up stockings. I find it odd that Sigvaris does not include pantyhose for men but offer many styles for women only.

  23. I use to have a job that required that I wear pantyhose but that was 3 years ago so now I am free. 🙂 I wouldn’t have minded wearing pantyhose if they would stay in place and not roll down around your waist or sag at the crotch. It always felt to me like I needed to go and adjust something. I even tried stay up stockings until one day I noticed one was wrapped around my ankle. Then you always had to remember to pack an extra pair of pantyhose in case you got a snag and your boss noticed you are serving customers with a huge ladder down the back of your leg. Those days are gone and now I wear leggings 24/7 the most comfortable article of clothing on this planet. I do resort to throwing on pair of tights under my leggings when the temps drop below freezing. The compression pantyhose that my husband wears are more like heavy duty tights because he works with them on and doesn’t seem to have the problems I had when I wore pantyhose. Sorry that you still have to wear hoisery for the office…. I feel for you.

  25. I am one of those guys who would definitely wear skirts and pantyhose to work if it were more acceptable (or leggings, tights, ect). I think I could get away with it in a legal sense, but in the end my employer could find another excuse to part ways. Transgenderism may be helping pave the way for guys, not sure, but I don’t think it is hurting it. I don’t think a man has to declare themselves to be trans in order to dress in more traditionally feminine garb, but more guys need to come out and not be embarrassed to wear pantyhose to prove this. It’s hard to tell how many guys actually “underdress” (wearing hose under their pants), I know I do some.

    I like to wear pantyhose and other fem leg-wear openly sometimes, but otherwise you can easily tell I’m a guy. Recently I wore pantyhose with grey legwarmers and a black mini skirt in public, at night. I went to the ATM where I saw a nice looking young black lady who smiled and stopped to hold the door for me. I told her thank you in a friendly tone. A guy came in to use the ATM next to me and a gave a sigh, he was probably just tired. They both clearly could see what I was wearing. I felt like I had a positive experience because of the friendly lady.

    The point is that if you’re a guy and wear pantyhose or other legwear, random people are not going to freak out if you wear them in public. I only wear openly on occasion and by myself, but that is only because of my own social hang ups and apprehension. At least try to wear them out in un-crowded places and you will see that it not a problem. Just because something is acceptable doesn’t mean it’s going to be endorsed or promoted in the mainstream. I would not object to it, but you don’t have to cross-dress attempting to pass as a woman to enjoy wearing hosiery now and again.

I have even had kilts tailor made to exactly 20 inches long and I wear these quite high on my waist. I love the freedom of movement you have in a kilt. I also usually wear 10-15 dernier tights which look good on my legs and feel really soft to the touch. I use hair remover on my legs because hairy legs do not look good in thin tights. My wife and family (two boys) accept my choice of dress as do neighbours and friends. I do not get stared at in public and I get compliments mostly from women rather than men.
    I think if more men were willing to try wearing tights and a short kilt or a short skirt they would love the feeling too. I am not gay, bisexual, or trangender. I am Scottish so I am entitled to wear a kilt but in the summer I wear short skirts for a change. The skirts are normally partially pleated like a kilt but sometimes not.
    I fully promote men wearing skirts, but like women if you have very ugy knees or legs trousers may be better for all.

I have worn them for fetish and for practicality as a warmth layer in the colder months and as a compression garment when spending long hours on my feet.

I have recently taken to wearing sheer(10-15den.) nude or skintone matching pantyhose in public with shorts. I know that some people have noticed, probably because of the shine in certain lighting, but no one has made any comments.

I like the way my legs look and feel when I have on hose. I like the way a kilt/skirt feels. A skirt is cooler than pants or shorts, especially in the summer. Especially when sitting. So what? This is what is referred to as freedom. Many people from many different backgrounds champion freedom and get in your face really fast when you try to tell them that they can’t exercise it.

    I believe in the “Live and Let Live” philosophy–just like Ronald Reagan. I also believe, among many other things, in the 1st and 2nd Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. So, If anyone wants to mess with me about the clothes that I choose to wear, go right ahead. Just be prepared for what you have coming to you. If I can’t tell / judge/dictate to you how to live and act, then the same goes for you. An if you choose to make an issue out of it by manifesting your thoughts in a physical way about how I look and dress, all I can say is to be prepared for the consequences of your actions.

  37. I always wear thin skin-coloured tights with shorts in the summer, with flip-flops or Crocs, as I like how they make my legs look, and how soft they feel.

    Quite often I’ll carry my shoes and walk around in my stockinged feet. It’s mostly women that notice and usually comment along the lines of asking if my feet were hurting or if they were hot, telling me that’s how their feet get in tights.

    Going into shoe shops is fun, as it’s usually female staff, and most love commenting on my tights and fitting me with nice female shoes, such as courts or dolly shoes.

    I think one of the girls who serves me regularly has a bit of a foot fetish, as she insists on sitting me down on a chair and takes time putting shoes on and off my feet. Usually she kicks off her shoes too, and I get to see her tan tights feet.

    We talk about feet and tights the whole time I’m in the shop, and I usually leave with a big stiffy!

  40. I’ve been wearing pantyhose since 1987. Over the past 10 years I have been wearing them with shorts. The main reason is for leg health. I have vericose veins. I wear shorts, go everywhere in them for work, on my off time with my wife.

  41. In my home, I wear the pantyhose. My wife hasn’t worn them for years. If she does at all, it’s for special occasions. And I can’t remember the last time she had to do that. Most women prefer bare legs now anyway, even at fancy events.

    I wore them in secret when I was young. But now I wear them for a finished off, polished look. My wife has a career that leaves her no time for housework, so it became my responsibility. I was keeping house dressed as a maid occassionally, 15 years ago, for fun. But now, that’s become a regular expectation. It’s the norm for me to put on a maid uniform for the day, when I’m ready to work. If I didn’t put one on, my wife might see it as odd. When she sees me in it, it’s a signal to her that the house is being maintained.

    I wear pantyhose, because for me they feel comfortable and add extra support. But my wife also prefers I wear them to finish off my outfit. She likes to see things neat and proper. So I wear pantyhose with a dress, due to the role I play in my household.

    I know a lot of women hate them. I guess I can see how they might find them annoying since they can run and they slip down at the tummy, once the waist becomes loose after several wears. But generally, I don’t have an issue with them. I can make them last a long time. I find them soft and comfortable, like they’re giving my legs a hug all day. They don’t get in the way when I do my housework either. On the rare occasion that I snag them, I just toss them out and put on a new pair. For me, pantyhose are something I wear, not my wife.

  42. It has been over a year since I have been dressing in pantyhose, skirts, and heels in public and it is wonderful. I still get an occasional snicker or odd look, but for the most part, people do not treat me any different. I have been surprised at how many people have told me how good my legs look in the pantyhose, or how many say “good for you” because of the way I am dressed. I won’t say people are accepting but I think they are more tolerant. I don’t wear a wig or makeup. I am a guy in women’s clothes. I urge everyone to be who you are and not what the world thinks you should be.

    1. I recently traveled to Texas for a wedding and I brought no pants with me. I flew in a skirt and wore dresses the entire weekend, and it was absolutely fantastic. I didn’t get any negative reaction at all, from anyone, at any time.

  44. As a retired Missourian, I can attend college classes for free, and a couple of years ago, I found a denim skirt that I liked. On a whim, I wore it to class, and since, developed a preference for wearing skirts simply because it’s so much easier to just step into a skirt.
    I haven’t received the questions nor remarks that I feared — do not have to explain myself.
    Springfield, Missouri, though, does have a clause in a nudity ordinance outlawing a “person from dressing in clothing not pertinent to his or her sex” so I don’t know what I would do if legally challenged. I try to pick my group encounters carefully. In the meantime, I try to wear my skirts tastefully. I have eight. Pantyhose? No hankering.

  45. My wife doesn’t care for pantyhose. But wears them on occasion and generally when I don’t expect it. I love it when she does. Me on the other hand wear as often as I can which at the moment is not as often as I would like. Wife knows and doesn’t mind. We have also been out together both in hose and at times only me in hose under shorts. No negative comments from anyone. A few glances and that’s it. Anyway who cares what others think. Apparel it is and if it makes you feel good go for it. Life is too short not to enjoy the pleasures it offers.

  46. Once a week, I am in a French Maid costume (just a cheap one we bought at a seasonal Halloween store), panties, pantyhose, and heels. Suntan pantyhose are my go to, I like Hanes Silk Reflections, but find they run easily, so Leggs Sheer Energy get a lot of wear. I have two pairs of heels, a pair of black open toed and a traditional pair of white pumps. When I am dressed, I clean our entire house, my wife who changes into sweats, relaxes on the couch with a glass of wine and watches her shows. When I am done cleaning, she gets a foot rub, a back massage, and then I put my tongue to good use. This may not be for every couple, but we enjoy it. I like dressing up and the feeling of her being in charge, I think she likes having me clean while she relaxes. It’s certainly spiced up out marriage.

    1. Chris, that sounds more like kink than anything else. This post was about men who wear hose and skirts as normal wear in their everyday lives.

      I know that a lot of men like to cross-dress in the kink world, and that’s fine. Perhaps I’ll do a post on that angle, too.

    1. Hi Frank,

      Nice one. Mine does that too, and loves me showing off my (shaved, long smooth legs) in natural colour tights. She loves seeing the reaction I get from onlookers, when they notice I’m wearing tights!

      She particularly likes me to show off my tights-covered feet in public, when I’m wearing shorts and tights (usually with reinforced toes), especially on buses or trains, so gets me to kick off my shoes, put my feet up on the seats in front and wiggle my toes….

      Then watch to see who’s looking! Inevitably, it’ll be a female who notices, and we’ve had all sorts of conversations about the subject, especially from women wearing tights themselves, who’ll often kick off their shoes and discuss their love of feet and tights, and their feet being hot, so take any chance they can to slip off their shoes.

      I gives me such a stiffy both looking at their nylon feet and talking about the subject of tights and feet, which my wife will usually ‘ease’ for me later when the train carriage or bus empties a little, hehehehe…..

  48. I have been wearing high heels for 6-7 years now. About a year ago my girlfreind suggested I should start wearing pantyhose to my high heeled boots and pumps. She told me it would look much better and I would be more comfortable wearing sheer nylons when I have my heels on. Yes! She was right. It looks much better with nylons when I´m wearing my pumps and it feels so much better with nylons on wearing my slim toe pointy pumps and boots.
    So I started wearing pantyhose and I have wore pantyhose ever since.

    At about the same time I tried a skirt on for the first time.. Wow! What a feeling. Sometimes I´m wearing a skirt all week long. Its jus feels so good. Looking like a man from top to my waist, then looking well more as a woman, from my waist and down.
    Wearing a skirt I have to change the way I walk and move. I have to walk, sit, and stand the same way women do.
    I love it, my girlfreind tells me she love´s my new way of fashion and also my female colleagues tells me the too likes my new style.

    Had a meeting, sat crossing my legs. Did some dipping my heels under the table. Sat there just in my nylon clad feet. It was nice, needed some rest from my high heels.

    1. I’ve always worn panties because I like wearing sanitary pads, so the stretchy white cotton panties I wear help keep my bulky big pads nice and secure. They feel so soft and comfy, and I love them!

      Then I pull on some tan coloured tights and shorts, and walk around my local park, trying to get the attention of women. Quite a few stop and comment on how nice my legs look in nylons, and then they see the bulge in my shorts and ask about that. too!

    When I dropped the bomb that I should start wearing skirt to the office my boss told me that I had to follow the rules that the other women at the office follows. Its goes like this:
    No mini skirts. Its ok if my skirts are ending a bit or two above myy knees and we (the girls) are not allowed to have bare legs! Even in the summer time.
    So its pantyhose on for us girls all year round.

  54. I am wearing panty hose all the time, even in the warmer months. They sure do keep my legs comfortable be cause of the bad circulation problems. I do shave my legs because it helps to keep the hose from working down. Also makes my legs looking nice and slender. I,also, wear skirts while I am wearing them. Especially when I do some traveling. I do prefer mini skirts, cooler to wear. I wear them out in public and no ones seems to notice or cares. But defiantly around the house, it is panty hose and mini skirts for me.

  56. Just found this post so I’m late replying. I’m a regular male who does not identify as transgender or as a cross dresser but I have been wearing pantyhose out of choice for many years. I use skin tone colours under trousers and shorts with no socks. It gives me a bare leg look but evens out my skin tone which helps as my skin is very pale. Wearing them gives me more confidence about my personal appearance but no one really seems to notice or comment. I’m not really interested in the idea of wearing skirts.

  62. Sorry I have not posted anything for a time but I have been quite busy. The pressentaion went realy well. I was not alone, it was me and a male colleague to me that did the pressentation. My colleaque did most of the talking so I was not doing so much talking. It was good because i am a bit nervous to have to talk for a lot of peolple.

    I had black high heel stiletto pumps, 5″ high. Still I was a bit shorter then my coleaque.
    We was up there standing for at least 1 hour. Must say it was a bit hard standing in my toe pointy high heels.
    Did not wore a tie. Instead I wore a bra for the first time under my shirt. It felt realy good to wear a bra and I think my bra gave me a better posture.
