While lingerie is defined as "women's underwear and clothing that is worn in bed," However, some ballsy men have decided that they shouldn't be left behind!
You may very well be familiar with the floral Japanese male bra that sprung up online some time back, leaving individuals befuddled and somewhat interested. You most likely would have said to yourself, "This must be a joke. This can't be genuine." Well as it turns out, it most unquestionably can!
Besides, there's a large market of men who appreciate wearing feminine underpants and not on the grounds that they want to look progressively like ladies (apologies women). "There’s no variety in the men’s lingerie sold in department stores. It’s boxers and briefs, and if you’re really daring, maybe a thong!" said Australian male lingerie designer Brent Krause.
"There’s no denying department stores sell good quality, functional underwear, and that’s fine for ninety percent of men. But not me," he added. These Mangerie-wearing men like the texture and feel of pleasant undergarments and trust it's the ideal opportunity for men to get an opportunity to feel attractive before the mirror.
However, if you're supposing that these folks just exist on the opposite side of the world you're totally off-base! Krause's male undergarments organization Homme Mystere states that the majority of their clients originate from the United States. Krause says the U.S. makes up around 40 percent of its client base, with Western Europe and the UK making up another 40 percent.
They even send the stock to Russia and Canada. "I don’t think the male bra industry is any larger in Japan than anywhere else. Certainly, our numbers show the USA and Europe to be about the same in terms of size with Japan quite a distance behind," stated Krause.
"In saying that, our wholesale sales are very strong into Japan, which suggests guys are buying our lingerie but prefer to buy from a local store that speaks the language," he added. To make sense of who are the essential purchasers, a survey was sent to Homme Mystere's clients a very recently to get an idea of who these men are, and the replies that were received were laced with surprises.
For one, there's a major market for male bras, yet a significantly greater one for wonderfully custom fitted male underpants. One anonymous customer responded to our survey, "I wear panties daily!" Another said, "I wear lingerie daily, always panties, and a bra maybe three to four times a week. And nightly to bed."
Post-survey, it wouldn't be wrong to state that these men are wearing their arousing skivvies more regularly than customary male clothing. They're wearing them to work, to motion pictures, to gatherings, all over. And now, Krause wants to elevate the trend of male lingerie in day-to-day lives. "Choosing a department store brand of underwear each morning is a no-brainer. Choosing a style of Homme Mystere each morning is a little more fun," he stated.
