Mr. Underpinnings Column, WHAT?!?

Hey world of full-bust females,

It's Mr. Underpinnings. It's been quite a while since we've talked, how are you? My lady has come up with the idea of having me post semi-regulary on our little blog. I told her I would love to, but didn't know how you would feel... what would I even talk about? Is there room for an educated male perspective in the forum of women's lingerie and fashion?

So we have decided to leave it to you...

Would you blog readers out there be interested in reading more posts by me? If so, what sort of topics would you like me to cover? I'm open to anything :)

  1. There are certainly men who have something to add, like Jj of Bratabase. Men who contribute (as opposed to being creeps) have something valuable to say which doesn't rely on them being male. Creeps, on the other hand, think that because they are male they are authorities, and end up writing Cosmo style pieces on "How to please your man with 10 sexy pieces of lingerie." I don't think anybody wants to see that, and I don't get the impression that you're the kind of guy who would do that. So write about what you know, that we might not know. I don't know what your area of expertise is, so I cannot say what I'd like to see beyond that I hope it is informative.

    1. Thanks for the comment, ae3nn! I'm glad you get the impression that I'm not a creep (I certainly don't think of myself that way :)). And frankly, I don't know what my area of expertise is either... but I think its time to find out!

  2. I'd love to see a male's perspective on some of the lingerie issues and designs. Advice for guys shopping for their significant others, or even male thoughts on lingerie trends would be great.

    1. That's definitely along the lines of what I was thinking. A lot of the time when we are at home, Miss and I will be discussing the topics that she ends up turning in to posts, and I would love to offer another perspective as well! As for shopping tips, I would consider it my civic duty to help men that are less informed than me. Which is most men. Thanks for reading, Erica!

  3. We'd love to hear what you have to say! Just the fact that you're calling this "our little blog" shows me you are as committed to the Miss Underpinnings site as Miss Underpinnings herself! I'd like to hear anything you have to say. I just discovered Cecily's blog earlier this year, so I really don't know much about either of you. Are you a college student? Are you the chef of the family? What are you passionate about? Did you go to Poland with Cecily? Do you read every column before it gets posted? Which posts have been your favorite columns so far? I love the Miss Underpinnings blog & I'm really looking forward to reading posts from both of you!

  4. At first this kind of threw me but as I think about it more maybe this could be useful. I'm going to use an example that might seem a little off topic but I hope not. Breast health. My father has now had two, yes two breast cancer scares. No one ever talks about topics like this. We just got the results this week the the most recent biopsy was clear, whew!

    I've also had more then one scare and surgery and guess what it was my boyfriend who found the first lump not me. Fortunately we were in the kind of relationship where we were comfortable talking about things like this. Dad and I are both ok but my point is there are important unisex topics to talk about :)

    Also shopping tips for wives and girlfriends always welcome too. I feel pretty lucky my husband thinks good bras are important.

    1. Hey Re-Purpose! I am very happy to hear that both you and your dad or okay, that sounds like it was very scary! I knew that breast cancer could occur in men, but this is the first time I've actually heard of it happening so I thank you kindly for bringing it to my attention. I will definitely give that some thought. And yes I think there can never be enough shopping tips out there! Thanks for the comment, and for reading :)

  5. Nice you meet you, Mr. Underpinnings.

    I think there's definitely room for a male voice on here.

    One thing that may be of interest, if you are also a seeker of the perfect undergarments, is perhaps an occasional discussion/review of male underthings? I wouldn't want to hijack the purpose of this blog (female bras) but some of the places I shop for bras have men's underwear right beside women's things. My bf isn't the first guy I've known to struggle with uncomfortable underwear, but none of them have been bothered to do anything about it. I'm too afraid to spend $25+ on a pair of boxers for him without any idea what I'm getting into, but it's not like I haven't browsed. My boyfriend might be more perceptive to further bra searching if I were bringing back equally comfortable underthings for him :) I've certainly dragged him to enough bra shops!

    Other than that, surely you had something in mind when discussing further posts on here? If you think of something valuable to say, I'm sure some of us would find it valuable to read.

    1. Hey Gwye! That is a great idea. Men's undergarments seems like such an obvious topic for me to talk about, and yet I hadn't even thought of that! I am still coming up with other ideas, and I greatly appreciate your suggestion. Thanks for reading!
