Today is "No Pants Day"! Every year the first Friday of May is "No Pants Day".
The blog articles starting to trickle in about No Pants Day - and "No Pants Day" is just getting started!:

I wish I were as brave + talented as funny On-air radio personality + blogger Elizabethany was last year (see video) No Pants Day - YouTube"Elizabethany takes it to the streets and around the office to celebrate No Pants Day." Elizabethany's No Pants Day video was uploaded by YouTube user WhyPartyToday but her YouTube is LoveElizabethany's Channel . Check it out, and while you're at it check out Elizabethany's Blog and @luvelizabethany on Twitter.
The Wikipedia Entry for "No Pants Day" features a photo from this MYNews CTV Kitchener article.
In the spirit of "No Pants Day" I hope news media and bloggers feel free to and do publish photos of me with "No Pants" like the photos below: I'm having trouble deciding what panties to wear if I do go out and, unbelievably, despite all my big talk, I am such a SCAREDY CAT AND A CHICKEN!
I am supposed to be, in the spirit of "No Pants Day", going about my entire day with "no pants"
Instead, here I am merely sitting here and blogging in my panties, posting old photos of myself male-modeling full briefs like the one immediately below, and posting links to where even more old photos and videos of me male modeling and reviewing full briefs can be found:
There are videos of me male modeling and reviewing ladies full brief panties on YouTube, on this blog, in Twitpics in my Pictures by Panty Buns - Photobucket, and, of course, on the Wordpress page titled "Free-Panty-Photos-Panty-Buns-in-Panties-Modeled-Back-View" All photos of me male modeling panties (there are plenty of them) are released with a plea and a dare:
Quote: "Please copy, share, repost and re-publish the photos and videos of me male-modeling ladies full brief panties with mature women everywhere and in all media. Think you can figure out how to make me world famous in my ladies panties? Have you heard the expression be careful what you ask for? Well I’m begging for it and taunting you.. I dare you to make me world famous in my ladies panties complete with relentless saturation media coverage. Maybe you’re not smart enough or too chicken to do it? Double dare! RELEASED INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN by me, Panty Buns."
I have to admit it's pretty nervy of me to make a dare like that and then not back it up by going out in public in my panties on "No Pants Day" so I can be newsworthy. I haven't even gotten around to reviewing what I've bought yet.
I've purchased a lot of different brands and colours of full brief panties lately, including Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Brief Panties style 15712 from HerRoom, Tricot Full Briefs from Maidenform, Bali Classic Comfort Briefs, Warners "No Pinching No Problem" at JCPenney, at Freshpair and at BareBecessities, Warners "No Wedgies" at Macy's, WinterSilks Full Briefs, Silky Soft Briefs, Full Coverage Nylon Briefs, and , Nylon Lace Inset Briefs at ShopNational.
It's really unforgivable that I'm not out and about shopping in the city or at the shopping malls in my panties. I need an aggressive assertive woman to give me a good push out the car door, and strand me without my pants, start taking photos and calling the paparazzi!
If nobody comments I'll assume you're just disgusted with me for being all talk, no action, not posting new photos and reviews and not going out and getting myself famous on the nightly news.
I still have dreams of being "The Maidenform Man". You never know where I might turn up. You might see me anywhere (or everywhere) in my Maidenform panties!
This post is a follow up to my earlier post titled "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams". I had intended to purchase some Maidenform Shapewear (like a waistnipper) to male-model and review in this post but I guess I'll have to save that for a future post (Male Models Maidenform Dreams Part 3).
Some of the links to Maidenform's history in that post have been changed since my last post about Maidenform but here is a more recent link to Maidenform's Heritage (a brief summary) on the Maideform site. See more about the Maidenform ads that included the words: "The Maidenform woman. You never know where she'll turn up." after the photos and videos of me male-modelingMaidenform full brief pantiesimmediately below:
Maidenform Style 40614 Wise Buys Tricot Full Briefs with generous cotton lined gusset and lace waist are currently available online in body beige, ivory and white, and black. I only made lingerie review videos in the white and black pairs even though I purchased them in all four shades. I am longing for these classic briefs to be available in the various feminie colours once more.
I had male-modeled a Sea Foam Green pair in my earlier post "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams" I Just uploaded those two videos of myself male-modeling and doing lingerie reviews of these panties (in both white and black Maidenform knickers) in two videos which I just uploaded to to my YouTube (Mister Panty Buns's) Channel and have embedded below:
TRANSCRIPT: "Hi. Today I'm doing a customer lingerie review video of Maidenform's, um Tricot Full Brief, uh Maidenform's "Wise Buys Tricot Full Briefs", along with a Maidenform "Here Comes The Bride Babydoll". The briefs I'm modeling are size seven. Um, when you order the Maidenform Tricot Full Briefs, uh, try to remember to order either one or two sizes larger than you would - about two sizes larger than you would in a Vanity Fair or maybe one size larger than a Bali or a Warner. Um, they're really a wonderful panty. Um, they're full cut, uh in a very classic style and the uh the material, the nylon tricot is very soft and silky and feels wonderful against my skin. Uh, the "Here Comes The Bride Babydoll", I also got too small, this is an extra large. I should know by now that I need at least a 2X, um, and it's very lovely - the chiffon tiered ruffled babydoll. And, uh, if somebody more confident than me got it in the right size I'm sure they could do a much better job of modeling it, um, and tying the bows. It's very frilly and feminine, and I really love wearing it. Um, this video is released into the public domain. Please share it. Um, I wish I could get myself into good enough shape to actually be hired by Maidenform to be the Maidenform Man. I loved their "Dream Campaign". Um, with all the no pants events that go on, like the "No Pants Subway Ride", uh, "No Pants Day", the first Friday in May, and many others, you just never know. Uh, you might see me anywhere in my maidenform panties."

TRANSCRIPT: "This pair of classic full cut nylon panties is Maidenform's Wise Buys Tricot Full Briefs in white. As you can see, they have a, a, a very generous, full cut rear gusset, and, uh, they're very comfortable - out of soft silky nylon, and it also has a lace waistband, um, and I'm male-modeling it right now with a blouse that's also by Maidenform. This customer lingerie review video is released into the public domain. Please share it."

It's interesting to compare the shape of the rear seam of the gusset in the video of me in Maidenform Sea foam Green Wise Buys Full Briefs from my prior post "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams" with the rear seam of the gusset in the newer pairs. Not only did the older classic mushroom shaped gussets give more protection and provide a more rounded full cut shape, the seam was more bulky than the newer ones making for a rainbow shaped panty line which I adored! You read that right! I loved having that panty line! I think it's quite sexy and a real turn on. Strange? Not at all! I just absolutely LOVE panties! I love to buy, wear, and be seen in ladies full brief panties. As a woman asked me a long time ago: "What good is it if nobody sees them?" My destiny was sealed then and there. Hopefully, sooner or later, every woman on the planet will see me male-modeling ladies panties everywhere they look.
The following video is the one feature in my previous "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams" post: It's a video of me male modeling the Maidenform Sea Foam Green Wise Buys Full Brief Panties for YouTube and is aptly titled: PICT_Male-Models-Maidenform-Sea-Foam-Green-Full-Brief-Panties-5.AVI."
TRANSCRIPT: "Hi. This is a pair of Maidenform Wise Buys Full Brief panties in Sea Foam Green, and I'm male-modeling it with a Flexees Lace and Microfiber shapewear Camisole. This is probably the panty that comes closest to the cut pattern and fit of the Kayser full briefs but as usual I got them in a size too small. These are a size 5, and I also got the Flexees camisole a size too small. I should have gotten an Extra Large."
In the past Maidenform has manufactured these briefs in various colours including a lovely vibrant feminine pink. I would LOVE to own some of those again.
The historic and hugely successful Maidenform "Dream" advertising campaign started in 1949 and has spanned decades. The ads often included headline phrases like "I dreamt I was a star in my Maidenform bra." My own recollection is that there were, at one time, ads that included the line: "The Maidenform Woman. You might see her anywhere."
Later ads (in the 1980's and 1990's) featured women out in public in their panties and included the line "The Maidenform woman. You never know where she'll turn up."
In a lot of ways Maidenform was way ahead of it's time. Two women started the company and it was the first as far as I know to feature women out in public in their underwear. Then came the ever increasing underwear as outerwear trend. It came to the forefront with Madonna, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Beyonce and is being continued by Taylor Momsen and Hannah Montana (Myley Cyrus).
The trend was picked up on by designers who have incorporated sheer gowns into the Underwear as outerwear trend. Here are a few links:

GETTING BACK TO MALE-MODELING MAIDENFORM DREAMS PART 2
What I wrote in my previous post titled "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams" is still true:
"i have dreams of my own with respect to my Maidenform panties. There would be millions of Maidenform panty advertisements, not just on YouTube, but featured in every form of media all over the world showing me in my Maidenform panties with captions reading: "i dreamt i was world famous in my Maidenform panties", and all of the Maidenform ads would end with the words: "The Maidenform Man. You can see him everywhere"; in my dream become reality i would actually be filmed out in all those public places in my Maidenform panties for the millions of advertisements with all hundreds of television news cameras rolling."
I dream about there being photos of me in my panties on almost every billboard all around the world.
Another quote from my earlier post:
"All photos and videos of me male modeling ladies full brief panties on the blogs and in the videos have been and are released into the public domain, are intended for viewing by adult women everywhere for informational and entertainment purposes, and may be copied, shared and republished. Women's thoughts, questions, suggestions and comments are always welcome, and no diplomacy is expected or necessary. i hope you won't be shy. Please do share and re-post any of them you want to or all of them or at least the URLs?"
I know been promising for what seems like forever to do a post titled "A Briefs Update Part 3 for some time now. It's beginning to look like I may have to do the posts male-modeling and reviewing all the panties I've bought a couple at a time, because a post including all of them would be HUGE. They would include some NEW photos and videos of me male modeling and reviewing ladies full brief panties on YouTube, on this blog, for my Twitpics and possibly for my album Pictures by Panty Buns - Photobucket. A few the brands of lingerie and tops I've purchased but failed to male-model and review are briefs from Bali at HerRoom, ShopNational, Vanity Fair and Warners from HerRoom, Macys, J C Penney, Kohls ; silk briefs from WinterSilks and tops from D.H. Styles, Lane Bryant, Macys, J C Penney, and many more. As you can see from how long it took me to do this post It may be a while before I get all of those male modeled and reviewed. By the time I get ready to do a post about some of the lingerie I've bought I may well have bought even more. As I type this I'm ogling some pretty corsets and bustiers from Hips and Curves. The list of brands and retailers I want to purchase full briefs from is a long one.
P.P.P.S.: Quick, while there's still some potential for it to be news, share this!!!

Please share the photos and videos from my "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 2" everywhere!
Do you have any suggestions as to whom I should consider tweeting these photos and videos of myself in my Maidenform Full Briefs to?
My Twitter is @Panty_Buns
You undoubtedly guessed it from the title of this post: There's about to be another opportunity for me to get seen world-wide out in public in my panties. Apparently I did NOT yet miss the chance to participate in Freshpair's National Underwear Day after all! You read right! There's still a chance I could realize my dream of getting world famous in my panties by going shopping for underwear in my underwear on National Underwear Day at Freshpair AUGUST 22nd-AUGUST 23rd! What's more, the link is listed on their "Site Map" under Underwear Day "MODEL CONTEST"!
UPDATE! August 20th, 2012: Freshpair just did a new blog post titled National Underwear Day Spotlight
I had been still wondering whether I'd be the only guy running around the streets of Manhattan in ladies panties in front of the news media (if I went there). Then I tweeted to @Freshpair and @FreshpairWomen , asking: "will it be okay if I run aroud shopping 4 underwear in my panties on #NationalUnderwearDay ?"@FreshpairWomen went ahead and Retweeted my question!
image: Retweeted by @FreshPairWomen
Then, when I checked the link again for updates at "National Underwear Day at Freshpair.com". Here are some quotes from their site:
"This year we're pleased to announce the first ever National Underwear Day pop-up event at 315 West 57th Street in New York City, from 11am—7pm, August 22nd and 23rd, celebrating the best underwear with Feshpair:"
"Receive free underwear from Freshpair sponsors Wacoal, Calvin Klein, Leonisa, Emporio Armani, C-IN2, 2(x)ist, Rated M, Le Mystere, Elle Macpherson, and more!"
"Walk through Model Alley and have your picture taken with New York's hottest models."
On the webpage It reads like I could arrive in my Vanity Fair, Maidenform, Warners or Bali full briefs. If I didn't get arrested on the way there I could go buy a pair of knickers at Freshpair and then parade down "Model Alley" in them for the photographers. II wonder if I could parade past the photogs in each different pair I bouht? Since Wacoal is one of National Underwear Day sponsors the Wacoal Awareness Briefs might get me more press coverage, but they do also carry Vanity Fair Lace Nouveau and Vanity Fair Ravissant Briefs which are similar to the pair I'm wearing as I type this.
I'm always prattling about how I'd like to get more famous than Lady Gaga for being seen around the world in ladies panties. In fact, I felt a little jealous of when I saw that there was a nude photo of Lady Gaga featured prominently on a billboard in Times Square. I immediately felt an overwhelming desire for there to be a photo of me male-modeling ladies full brief panties on that billboard.
Arriving at and participating in the Freshpair Event would be a great opportunity to get famous in my panties with live coverage by all kinds of reporters, photographers, print, radio, TV , and paparazzi! The Freshpair site is indicating it's probable there will be television coverage, and I suspect if did I show up in just lingerie with my knickers showing there's a good chance of making the news. How much of a chance would there be of a photo of me in women's knickers being published on the front page of papers like the New York Daily News?
Even though I'll probably chicken out AGAIN, my apparent stage-fright hasn't prevented me from both posting and tweeting the photos of myself in my panties.
I brazenly tweeted a photo of myself in my panties to 7 celebrities:
"#Celebrity #FF @KatyPerry@LisaShane@ZaraMartin@Courtney@/LadyGaga@britneyspears@PamelaDAnderson from Panty_Buns http://www.twitpic.com/6kdh9d"
jpg image: Tweeted Twitpic of myself in black panties to Celebrities
One of the celebrities, Zara Martin, tweeted the photo back out to her followers as a reply saying "Thank You?"
PLEASE FOLLOW ZARA MARTIN! She's wonderful! Her Blogspot blog (without comments enabled) is Zara Martin, and her Twitter is @ZaraMartin. Please check out her @SIXmagazine interview titled: Zara Martin Made Her Mark and her Zara Martin for @ASOS jewelry . In other words, THANK YOU, Zara!
Unfortunately, it's quite likely I'll chicken out yet AGAIN ;(( unless I get escorted to 315 West 57th Street in Manhattan by some aggressive woman (or women) who will give me a ride, pants me, and give me a good push out the car door in my undies. What a likely scenario (NOT!). Why, oh WHY AM I SUCH A CHICKEN? After all, I've received welcome encouragement and directives from you, my commenters. You are my most Cherished Commenters.
I think this would be a good time to say Thank you to my recent Cherished Commenters. My apologies to all those who have commented who I accidentally failed to to add to this list.

Getting back to the National Underwear Day Pop Up Event in New York City:
If I go, should I wear some of my Favorite pink, black, or turquoise briefs by Vanity Fair or some pastel ones by Dixie Belle (see some of my older posts) or should I wear some of the briefs I've bought but haven't yet reviewed, like briefs from Bali at HerRoom, ShopNational, Vanity Fair and Warners from HerRoom, Macys, J C Penney, Kohls ; silk briefs from WinterSilks?
Oh, who am I kidding. The event is only two days away and I haven't even looked into a place to stay in Manhattan on Wednesday and Thursday. It looks like I'm turning into the sissy who cried "Wolf!" when it comes to actually participating in these events.
UPDATE number 2: OMG! Freshpair saw my tweet about this blog post, thanked me, and asked me to let them know if I'm coming!
Self-promotion: My Twitter is @Panty_Buns , My male modeled full-brief customer lingerie review videos are at Mister Panty Buns's Video Uploads, and the photos and videos of me male-modeling full brief knickers are also in Twitpics in my Pictures by Panty Buns - Photobucket, and, of course, on the Wordpress page titled "Free-Panty-Photos-Panty-Buns-in-Panties-Modeled-Back-View". All photos and videos of me male-modeling ladies panties are and have been released into the public domain by me, Panty Buns. Please feel free to and do share and re-post them everywhere!
So what do you think? What colour and brand of panties should I wear to arrive and shop in if I can actually get up the nerve to go shopping for underwear in my underwear and participate in the Underwear Day "Model Contest"?
I missed out on yet another underwear in public event, but this one wasn't very close to where I live so I don't feel as guilty about not participating - just a little embarrassed that I didn't blog something in advance. They had a good turnout and some news articles and videos from the 2012 Utah Undie Run have been published about it despite the relative lack of publicity beforehand.

Some day maybe I'll actually make it to one of these underwear in public events. If I do, hopefully you'll see it posted here on this blog, on
my YouTube Channel and naturally I'll Tweet about it on my Twitter, @Panty_Buns
P.S.: You didn't really think I was going to let another post go by without gratuitously posting a photo of myself male-modeling a pair of panties did you? I'm still trying to locate a fresh pair of full briefs in a vibrant feminine pink colour like this pair:
JPEG image: Mister Panty Buns male models pink satin knickers
I have released this photo of myself into the public domain. Some day, hopefully I'll get up the nerve to participate in one of these underwear events wearing knickers like these. It would probably help me attain the word-wide fame in my panties I've been seeking. Meanwhile, PLEASE SHARE THIS PHOTO and all other panty modeling pics and videos of me as well!
Lingerie was in the news a lot this past week and this post barely scratches the surface of it all. My apologies to all the wonderful lingerie retailers who aren't mentioned in this post. I hope to get to everyone eventually. Meanwhile, here's some of the lingerie that made the news:
Lady Gaga's Lingerie, Lingerie Football League, A New Victoria's Secret PINK Store, 2012 Undie Awards :
LADY GAGA made the news in her yellow lingerie
Lady Gaga put herself in the news in her panties again. This time she Tweeted four photos of herself wearing just a skimpy pair of yellow knickers and matching bra. As X17 Online put it: Lady Gaga Asks Fans To Join Her "BODY REVOLUTION" Campaign
Another article with three of the four photos: "Lady Gaga Slams Weight Critics: "I'm Proud At Any Size" | LadyGaGa | News | MTV UK"
Zimbio published an article by Alicia Diaz Dennis titled "Lady Gaga Strips Down to Lingerie for 'Body Revolution 2013'". The article republished photos from LittleMonsters.com, Lady Gaga's social networking site along with a quote from Mother Monster. Quoting the Zimbio article which in turn quoted Lady Gaga: Gaga kicked things off by posting several pictures of herself in a yellow bra and matching panties, with the captions, "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15. But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. "
Crushable: "Lady Gaga Posts Underwear Photos And 'Confession' To Make Fans Feel Better About Their Bodies"
The SUN: "Lady Gaga wades into weight gain debate-with snap in her undies"
Some sites, such as Celebrified, ignored the message and simply republished the photos with the headline "Lady Gaga Tweets Bra & Panties Photos"
A not-so-nice article in "The Twist" which featured the photos of Gaga in her yellow bra and knickers was quite cynical and titled "Lady Gaga is A Show-Off, Lost 25 Pounds in 7 Days" saying "Face it, you shrunk because you’re not as comfortable in your skin as you tell everyone else to be."
So is she really going to try to help? I think there are better organizations to contact for help with eating disorders, but Lady Gaga does reach a large audience when she puts her knickers on display. By contrast, the National Eating Disorders, NED Awareness Week and the First UK conference into eating orders in sport on 27 September, 2012 got very little notice. . I seem to recall Eating Order Awareness being encouraged by Laura who writes A Daisy Chain Dream.
I love that Lady Gaga has helped make wearing panties in public fashionable, but being a vegetarian on principal I was very much sickened by her wearing of a meat dress. Gaga does seem, as Madonna does, to thrive on controversy and sometimes she seems seems a bit out of touch - and sometimes fans get caught in the cross-fire. Gaga come out against wearing fur on the Ellen Show and after she Retweeted a poster of herself posing with what appeared to be a wolf carcass for the movie Machete Kills she found herself in PETA's crosshairs . People were being asked to choose between @Peta and @LadyGaga. Some fans of Nikita's MaggieQ who is a staunch PETA supporter were also fans of LadyGaga. Apparently some mean things were said both between PETA and Lady Gaga and also between fans and feelings got hurt. Peta has a lot of celebrity supporters, including Kim Basinger, @Pink, @LyndsyMFonseca, @AngelaSimmons, @AliciaSilv, @bifnaked , @PamelaDAnderson, @BreeOlson, @KatieKModel, @NAPIERMAKEUP, and First Lady Michelle Obama (Sorry from straying off-topic).In other lingerie news:
THE NFL increased the credibility of theLINGERIE FOOTBALL LEAGUEwhilst losing some of its own credibility, bringing the LFL (and their YouTube Channel, the Lingerie Football League's Channel) to my attention.
InsideEdition.com published a photo along with it's article titled: Game-ending call from #NFL replacement refs sparks uproar Controversial Referee Call Outrages NFL Fans. The article stated that "The replacement refs involved in the controversial touchdown are being linked to the Lingerie League.
It seems that he Lingerie Football League, whose Twitter is @MyLFL, had fired the same crew of Replacement Referees for incompetence prior to their having been hired by the NFL .
Even Forbes did an article titled Lingerie Football League: We Fired Some Current NFL Replacement Refs Forbes reported that the blown call "...caused a half-billion in betting funds switch hands..."
The commissioner of the Lingerie Football League was quoted in the LA Times as saying "The entire crew was released due to several poorly called games which included missed calls, poor judgment and poor presentation for broadcast. They were hurting our overall broadcast caliber. And if it's opening up our players for potential injury, those things raise red flags here. When either of those two things are compromised, it's time to start thinking about parting ways."
The LA Times article by Houston Mitchell opens with the line: You know you are in trouble when even the Lingerie Football League is making fun of you.
There are more quotes and a look at more of that LFL lingerie in the Lingerie Football League photos in the Daily News article Replacement refs working in NFL were FIRED from Lingerie Football League, LFL commish says; 'The NFL has been exposed' by shoddy scab refs.
The controversy has been cited as a factor in getting the contract negotiation talks between the referees and the NFL to progress swiftly.
As Fox News astated in the first sentence of their article titled: Lingerie League, lawmakers pile on replacement refs"Everyone from lawmakers to lingerie lovers are piling on the NFL"
The lingerie-related coincidences just kept on popping up:
Victoria's Secret "PINK lingerie store opening at Cowboys Stadium Oct 1st
There was an article in the Arizona Daily Star titled NFL: Notebook: Lingerie Football? Shh, Cowboys have a Secret. The timing of the blown call by NFL Replacement Refs and the FRONT PAGE DAILY NEWS STORY featuring the Lingerie Football League couldn't have been better for Victoria's Secret and their plan to open a Victoria's Secret "PINK" Lingerie store at Cowboys Stadium today, October 1st, 2012. The online Victoria's Secret PINK advertisement currently features a photo of a model holding a pink football, wearing (surprise) a Green Bay Packers jersey and advertises the Pink NFL Collection.
More lingerie news: THE 2012 UNDIE AWARDS (Note: this post may need a follow-up at some later date).
In last Year's post on the 2011 Undie Award I had embedded a video titled: 2011 Undie Award Winner: Regular Cut Brief - Vanity Fair 15712
This week I discovered via Twitter that the 2012 Undie Award Winners have been posted.
The Undie Award winner for Favorite Brief (Regular Cut) for the THIRD YEAR (winning in 2008, 2011, 2012) was the Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Brief 15712
This full brief by Vanity Fair is once again your favorite. Made of 100% nylon for a silky soft feel, this panty provides full coverage. It's offered in many different colors so everyone can have the color they love. The panty has an ultra-soft covered elastic waistband and covered elastic leg openings for a comfortable, custom fit. Comes in sizes 5 to 12 (Small to 5X)
I love the video titled "Vanity Fair 15712" on their site and am hoping it gets uploaded to HerRoom's YouTube Channel along with videos featuring all the other 2012 Undie Award winning lingerie.
Once again I've been lax and have yet to take any new photos or videos of myself male-modeling and reviewing lingerie to accompany posts on this blog, in on my YouTube channel (Mister Panty Bun's Channel) my Photobucket album (although photos from there don't seem to be visible when posted on other sites - not sure why), in Twitpics ant to tweet on my Twitter @Panty_Buns. Please share!
Naughty me for being so lazy, tardy and unproductive.
I was just about to write a post when I noticed that almost all of the approximately 80,000 page views for my blog had disappeared. Apparently it happened within the last day or two. People have been doing entire blog posts on the missing page views and commenters have been worrying whether they'll get their views back. Fortunately it's now a Known Issue and Blogger is working on it. See http://www.knownissues.blogspot.com/2012/10/missing-stats-for-pageviews.htmlUPDATE: Blogger fixed it quickly! Thank you Blogger!
UPDATES A while after my last post titled "Lingerie News: Lady Gaga, Football, PINK, Undie Awards" I discovered that I had overlooked some videos uploaded by Vanity Fair on their Undie Award wining panties and a video that had been by Victoria's Secret PINK featuring their NFL Collection.
There had been, as you might recall, a lot of news regarding the NFL using replacement referees who had been previously fired for incompetence by the Lingerie Football League
Coincidentally, both Victoria's Secret PINK and the Lingerie Football league featured a pink football, as can be seen in this Lingerie Football League clip titled "LFL | CANADA | GREATEST HITS SERIES | GAME 6".
Those look like some really hard hits with insufficient padding in those Lingerie Football League Games. Ouch.
YouTube user Victoria's Secret PINK had previously uploaded a video titled NFL Collection.
Some of the quotes from the "Victoria's Secret New! PINK NFL Collection""GAME ON" (in yellow undies) "PLAY THE FIELD""SCORE" (in red undies) "DRAFT YOUR FAVES" (in striped undies) "ALL 32 TEAMS"
In other lingerie news I'd paid insufficient attention to this year was MaidenformBrand's YouTube Channel uploaded a briefs video (pun intended) titled: "Maidenform's 90th Anniversary Collection".
I also noticed that YouTube user Vanity Fair Lingerie had already uploaded a video titled "Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Tailored Brief" which I'd wanted to see on YouTube. There was no mention in the video of the brief having won Undie Awards in 2008, 2011, and 2012 since they apparently uploaded the video prior to winning the award yet again.

As I watched these videos it I couldn't help but continue to feel miffed that some of my ten customer lingerie review videos featuring me in the exact same brand and style of Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Lace Nouveau Briefs had been marked with a warning: "This video may contain material flagged by YouTube's user community that may be inappropriate for some users" and requiring people to sign in in to view them. One poorly lighted video of me modeling and reviewing these same briefs had previously disappeared - in it's place was a statement slandering me, saying: "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content". It was a clear-cut case of sex discrimination and obvious that the real objection was to me being a MAN SEEN WEARING LADIES PANTIES!

You've probably seen the customer lingerie review videos of me male modeling the pink Vanity Fair full briefs before, but in case you haven't, here's one embedded so you can watch it yourself.
The brand and style of full coverage Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Lace Nouveau Style 13001 ladies full brief nylon panties that I'm shown male modeling in this video are available both in a wide variety of lingerie and department stores both online and in - store. This particular style of Vanity Fair ladies nylon full brief panties are made of a satiny soft finely woven nylon tricot with a cotton lined gusset and triangular lace insets. Vanity Fair advertises these panties as being both comfortable to wear and pretty to look at, and they really are! I love the look and silky feel of these panties and wish I could find more of them in a similar vibrant ultra-feminine pink colour. This video is released into the public domain. Please share it. I apologize once again for not taking and posting new photos or videos of myself male-modeling and reviewing lingerie on this blog, on my YouTube (Mister Panty Bun's Channel) in my Photobucket album in Twitpics and to tweet on my Twitter @Panty_Buns for all the world to see. As always, I love having the photos and videos of myself male-modeling and reviewing women's underwear shared and republished as much and as widely as possible. UPDATE: Blogger has fixed the page-view counter. Thank you Blogger! Tweet
Somewhat off-topic for this blog since the black knickers in this video aren't full-briefs, but It's Katy Perry's 28th Birthday!!! As a present to her KatyCats, Katy had a part of herself uploaded to her YouTube: The Official Firework music video. As of the time I'm typing this the video has already had 329,000,000 views and 721,000 comments. By contrast my own customer lingerie review videos on YouTube (Mister Panty Bun's Channel) have only had 63,500 views and there have only been a little over 82,400 page views on this blog. I already logged into my Twitter @Panty_Buns and Tweeted a Happy Birthday to @KatyPerry (along with millions of KatyCats).
Happy Birthday again Katy, and thank you!!! P.S. Here's the link to Katy Perry's website
In the way of unrelated lingerie news, ZARA MARTIN walked in the Agent Provocateur show!
My initial full brief panty review in this post was of a pair of Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Tailored Nylon Mini-floral Print Briefs which I purchased from JC Penney a while ago but hadn't gotten around to reviewing. I have also made a number of other blouse and panty purchases for future posts, and already done 8 new customer lingerie review videos for YouTube.
Vanity Fair nylon full briefs are carried by a lot of different retailers (including Freshpair, HerRoom, Bare Necessities, Satin Rose Intimates, Isaac Sultan, Lady Grace, Macy's, Kohl's, JCPenney, National, Beall's among others).
Even though these full briefs are carried by a large number of retailers it is still difficult finding the briefs in the solid vibrant feminine colours I like without actually visiting different stores in person, which can take a lot of driving and a lot of in-store lingerie shopping legwork. When shopping online for Vanity Fair full coverage nylon briefs online I have occasionally found briefs in a colour I like in very limited sizes and quantities. I suspect that other panty retailers and department stores also have briefs in feminine colours in-store but don't post them online because the quantities in each size are so limited. Another drawback of online shopping is that the colours of clothing often look different in person than it does on the computer screen. I wonder how much darker or lighter Haze Blue is compared to Soft Blue and Aqua Mist?
Amongst the other briefs I've purchased for my male-modeled customer lingerie review blog posts here and on my YouTube (Mister Panty Buns's Channel) but not yet done posts on are pairs of the: Bali Sleek Comfort Nylon Brief Panty A272 from HerRoom; Rhonda Shear "Blossom" Jacquard Panty Style 9566 in Petal Pink; Assorted (pink white and blue) Lace Trim Full Coverage Nylon Briefs from National; Warner’s® No Pinching No Problem™ Brief Panties 5738 in Hibiscus Pink; Dollhouse Bettie Retro 50s High Waist Satin Panties in Peach; Vanity Fair Ravissant Brief from Kohl's in "Fuchsia Applique"; Teri Everyday Elegance High Cut Brief Panty 756 in a lovely yellow, size 6 from @HerRoom. There are other briefs I've blogged about but never done video customer lingerie reviews for, like the Filament Full-Cut Briefs from WinterSilks in Pink Tulip I was lucky enough to be able to purchase. More recently I purchased a pair of WinterSilks Mid-rise Lacy Briefs in Sunsilk Yellow but would want to wear a thong underneath them for YouTube or this blog. I have also been taking a long look at the Cosabella Never Say Never Shaper Bikini Panty NEVS05Z in yellow. They look lovely.
Originally I was intending to pair these mini-floral satin briefs with a women's plus-size Cascading Ruffle Blouse in Red Rose that I'd ordered from Avenue. Unfortunately there must have been a mixup. The wrong item got shipped. They sent a cheap sleeveless striped tee-shirt and it took a while before I received it. I almost never return things bu this time I did. they won't give me credit until it ids "processed" which may take another month. The charge for the more expensive blouse I never got is still on my credit card 22 days later. Even though I mailed it back Dec. 18th and they received it Dec. 22nd and they are saying it may take another 4 weeks to "process" the return and give me credit for it. Unfortunately Avenue.com's customer service is not good as Lane Bryant who gave immediate credit for a return, after which purchased another blouse from them - and will do so again. I already had my next nine coordinated/complementing blouse and full-brief-panty purchases made and links typed into rough outlines of reviews. 7 of the next 8 new blouses are waiting to be modeled, photographed, videotaped and reviewed along with a LOT of pairs of lovely full brief panties.
I had just finished trying on all the blouses I was planning to wear with them and thought about maybe getting a mastectomy bra and silicone breast forms, though I rarely wear the falsies and bras I already own, because the blouses were loose and a few were longer in back than I'd like. It's important for the seat of the panties being modeled to be visible after all.
My favourites among the new purchases were blouses by Alfani in yellow and by International Concepts in black. Many of the blouses were darker, longer, and less brightly coloured than they had appeared on the web-pages I had selected them from. I may try some in-store shopping in the future.
I have been thrilled with all of the briefs I've purchased. I tried on one two pairs of Dollhouse Bettie Retro 50s High Waist Satin Panties in Peach, size 5. They are absolutely gorgeous and feel delightful - the perfect panty! I love them so much I ordered three more pairs. What a gorgeous and feminine pinup panty! I also love the yellow colour and fit of the Teri Everyday Elegance High Cut Brief Panty 756, the stretchiness of the Rhonda Shear "Blossom" Jacquard Panty Style 9566 and the silky-softness of all the other full brief panties I purchased.
Since the backlog of posts, photos and videos to be done was so large and Avenue.com hasn't gotten their act together I simply grabbed the vintage Lady Manhattan red blouse I'd worn on Halloween 30 years to complement this pair of briefs. It's a size 18 with puffy shoulders, some ruffles on the front and at the neckline and can be buttoned all the way up to hide my lack of cleavage or left unbuttoned with the right lingerie underneath. .
Here are a two photos of me male-modeling pair of Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Style 15712 Ravissant Minifloral Tailored Nylon Briefs in size seven paired with the vintage red Lady Manhattan ruffled blouse in size 18 to complete my blouse and panty outfit. I've also embedded a hastily made, amateurish unscripted customer lingerie review video of myself in the blouse-and-panty outfit:
Vanity Fair's floral print tailored briefs seem, to me, to be of a heavier closely woven satiny nylon fabric and to run a size smaller than indicated compared to the Vanity Fair Ravissant Style 15712 full briefs for sale in solid colours. This pair of full briefs is a size 7, whereas I normally wear a size 5 in Vanity Fair. That would be equivalent to a size 6 in Warners or Bali and a size 8 in some styles by Hanes or Pink. The elastic leg bands also feel more substantial than most Ravissant briefs and are of a different colour than the base fabric of the panty. These panties feel wonderful, and in my opinion, are suitable for outerwear or to wear to the beach in addition to being lovely underpants. They are one of many full coverage briefs that, in my opinion, would be perfect for wearing in an underwear in public event like the annual "No Pants Subway Ride" or on "No Pants Day".
AND NOW FOR THE CUSTOMER LINGERIE REVIEW VIDEOS!
TRANSCRIPT: "The ladies full brief nylon panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing today are Vanity Fair's Perfectly Yours Ravissant Tailored Minifloral Nylon Briefs. As you can see, they have a nice lilac coloured leg bands that have quite a bit of give in them. Uh, the fabric is quite opaque, uh, so you could probably wear it to the beach. Um, for some reason the mini-floral patterns by Vanity Fair tend to run a little smaller than the regular Style 15712 Ravissant briefs, um, and the fabric is, I don't think, quite as stretchy. But it's a wonderful feeling, they're wonderful to wear. I've paired it today with a vintage blouse from Lady Manhattan. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain. Please share it everywhere."
Transcript: "The pretty pink full brief nylon panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing in this video are the 'Ahh Blossom Seamless Jacquard Brief Panty' by Rhonda Shear. Um, they came quite quickly in the mail, and I was delighted to see this really pretty catalog From Rhonda Shear that came with my order. As it says in the catalog, "Behind every great woman is a great behind", lovely picture on the back. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the panty. They looked small, but like in the commercial, they're very stretchy. I've paired this pair of panties today with a braided trim peasant blouse from Lane Bryant. Lane Bryant's service department is excellent. I initially ordered a blouse that was too small, sent it beck, which is rare for me, and there was no problem, and I made an exchange, and got this pretty blouse. You've probably heard of Rhonda Shear's name before and seen her on Home Shopping Network. She's quite a star and queen of, uh, President of Shear Enterprises. Um, and I'm delighted with the service and very pleased with the colour of the panty. This colour is Petal Pink. Um, I'm also thinking of ordering another panty from this catalog. Uh, 'Sweet Spice Butterknit Brief' Uh, they look like a really pretty full brief, and it looks like I could get them in pink and other colours as well that I'd like. They're a nice feminine panty and stretchy and very accommodating. This lingerie video review is released into the public domain. Please share it everywhere or use it as you see fit."

TRANSCRIPT: "The pretty pair of women's yellow nylon knickers that I'm wearing, male-modeling and reviewing in this video is a pair of Teri Everyday Elegance High Cut Brief Panties. Um, I got these panties from HerRoom in a size six. Um when you buy Teri, if you're accustomed to some of the other brands like Vanity Fair, might want to size up one size. I probably should have gotten a size seven in these, which would have been more equivalent to a Vanity Fair size five or six. But there's quite a bit of stretch in them, and they feel wonderful, and they look lovely, and it's, it's very difficult finding a really nice yellow full-cut nylon brief panty that this is one of the, other than Teri,and Cosabella, I, and possibly Wacoal, I don't know of any other panties that are currently made in a pretty yellow colour like this. I've paired it with an International Concepts blouse. A long sleeved peasant top. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain for any and all purposes. Please feel free to use it and share it everywhere."
The description of the Teri Everyday Elegance High Cut Brief Panty 756 on the HerRoom website included the words: "High-waist styling with a bow at the center front""This brief panty is made of smooth and soft microfiber...""Beautiful embroidery adorns the sides of the panty, which comes in pretty pastel colors""Made of 82% nylon and 18% spandex fabric.""Sewn in cotton crotch of the same color." Its all true. Even though the first three pairs I ordered were a bit small side for me I loved the look of the panty and that yellow colour so much that I ordered another three pairs in size seven.
TRANSCRIPT: "The pair of full coverage ladies nylon panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing in this video is a pair of Vanity Fair's Perfectly Yours Ravissant Style 15712 full brief panties. This particular panty is in the colour 'Fuchsia Applique' I was expecting something a little closer to fuchsia, but I was very happy when it came out such a gorgeous, gorgeous feminine purple. These purple panties by Vanity Fair Ravissant Briefs are extremely comfortable. This pair is a size six. Um, they're very silky-soft. Ravissant briefs by Vanity fair are, well they're so comfortable that I could wear them night and day. I've paired it today with a Metallic Gold Style and Company Batwing Sleeve Blouse from Macy's.

TRANSCRIPT: "The pair of ladies panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing in this video is Bali's Sleek Comfort Nylon Brief Panty A 272. It came in a package of blue, mocha and black. Um, it's, uh, it is what it says it is. Sleek comfort. A very comfortable full coverage brief with a lace trimmed waist. I'm male-modeling it now with a Fuchsia Romantic Smocked Sheer Lace Top by DH Styles. This is a very comfortable panty, uh I happened to order it from HerRoom but it's available from a lot of other retailers. I've had excellent service from HerRoom. Thank you Tomima!

For this outfit post and customer lingerie review I paired a pair of lavender Hanes Her Way Women's Nylon Brief Panties from Kmart with a Green Eyelash Ruffle Top from Dressbarn. Dressbarn's Twitter is @dressbarn.
In this outfit post with customer lingerie review video embedded below I'm male-modeling an opaque pair of Dollhouse Bettie Retro 50s High Waist Satin Panties in Peach, size 5. I've paired this lovely pair of retro satin pinup panties with a dressy Blu Sage Black Sequin Chiffon Top having a round neck and batwing sleeves from JCPenney.
For this lingerie outfit post I've paired a batwing sleeve Elle Lace Top in Ultramarine Green from Kohl's with a pair of lace trimmed Full Coverage Nylon Briefs from National.
Quoting from Kohl's webpage: "ELLE tops are fashion forward. Lacey open-work design makes this women's top a trendy choice. Accessorize with jewelry from our ELLE collection to complete your head-turning ensemble.
Batwing sleeves offer modern style.
Smocked inset on the front ensures a flattering fit.
Soft cotton blend and full lining lend continuous comfort.
I have been getting catalogs from National for many many years. They carry a variety of comfortable women's apparel at very reasonable prices.
I purchased 2 three packs (6 pairs) of the Lace Trim Full Coverage Nylon Brief 1440 in "Assorted (1 Pink, 1 White, 1 Blue)" by telephone from the National catalog at 1-800-480-4673, since my browser is having difficulty connecting to their website at http://www.shopnational.com. The National catalog is from National Wholesale Co., Inc., 400 National Blvd., Lexington, NC, 27294. A description of these briefs from their catalog: Lace Trim Full Coverage Nylon Brief 1440"Silky-soft smoothness and waist-high styling.Stretch lace trim. Cotton lined crotch. Machine wash, dry. Imported. All White, All Beige, or Assorted (1 Pink, 1 White, 1 Blue )"
I also purchased some support stockings, a garter belt, and some Vanity Fair Nylon Lace Inset Briefs in Aqua from National. I was very pleased with the quality of the lingerie I've purchased from National and have found their customer service to be extremely pleasant and helpful.

In the United States of America July Fourth is "Independence Day", supposedly a celebration of a greater liberty than was guaranteed under the Magna Carta. Now it seems we have even less. The guarantees of the right to Habeas Corpus and prohibitions against Ex Post Facto laws have been decimated. The Declaration of Independence states in part that we are endowed by our creator "...with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
There was great debate over whether or not to have a Bill of Rights, with the primary argument against it being that people would claim rights were limited to those listed. That concern was addressed by including the Ninth Amendment which stated: "The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people". Thus, the right of privacy was deemed to be implied by the Fourth Amendment - a right and an Amendment that has been shredded, trampled on, ignored, and viewed with disdain by those currently holding office at all levels of government in the United States of America, the States, their counties, municipalities, the Courts, and by all levels of "law enforcement". They have all violated their oaths of office, encouraged illegal searches, eavesdropping, surveillance, and suppression of the truth about their unpatriotic, unconstitutional and illegal authoritarian actions. The words "the people" were not referring to prosecutors or town attorneys - they were referring to the every day citizens who all too often are arrested and prosecuted for exercising their inalienable rights. Compounding this outrage is the fact that the allegedly "free" press is all too often bought, censored, and silenced.
THE FOURTH AMENDMENT:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
This Fourth of July there is a movement to Restore the Fourth Amendment.

I know the subject of this post WAY is off topic for this blog, but it bothers me to see police roadblock checkpoints where the police are invading the privacy of every single motorist and to know the government is listening in on our phone calls and monitoring our internet activities.
The National Anthem asks: "Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?" Apparently not.
Let's try to Restore the Fourth Amendment that our elected and appointed officials have failed to "protect, preserve and defend" in direct violation of their Oaths of Office, lying about it afterwards.
They should be impeached.
This post is mainly about lingerie and full brief panty events, news, videos and blog posts that I FAILED to participate in, FAILED to blog about in a timely fashion, and Failed to do yet. It's not in chronological order but there is a P.S.: "Thank You" at the end.
For future posts?
Here's a photo of some of the blouses and full briefs I've purchased with the intent of reviewing in blog posts and videos but haven't gotten around to yet followed by a list of some of the brands and styles of the briefs in the photo.
Two of the blouses I ordered to complement the briefs turned out to be unavailable and the colours of a couple of them turned out to be a bit darker than expected. I's taking longer than I thought to decide which briefs to style with which blouse and vice versa and looking like I might have to buy even more blouses and briefs to get the complementary colour contrasts I'm looking for in my lingerie fashionista outfits.
A partial list of of the full brief panties I've bought and failed to review this year:
The MTV VMAs:
Some other news involving underwear that I've been late in blogging about: The dancing?/ twerking at MTV's VMAs by Miley Cyrus wearing a latex bra and panty set (see this photo of Miley in mirror.co.uk). Lady Gaga stripped down to a revealing shell thong bikini(see this photo of Lady Gaga in Mail Online) by the end of her act in the opening song of the night - her song Applause. YouTube user hollywoodbackstage uploaded a video titled "MTV VMA 2013: Miley Cyrus Vs. Lady Gaga -- Performance" which didn't show the seashell thong Lay Gaga eventually stripped down to but did show her wearing a sheer dress over black briefs. Jessica Biel arrived to meet her husband Justin Timberlake for a VMA after party wearing an embroidered sheer dress over black full brief panties - (see this photo of Jessica Biel in Mail Online).
September 2013 MYLEY CYRUS UPDATE: According to Billboard Magazine, "Miley Cyrus'"Wrecking Ball" Swings Atop Hot 100" In the controversial hit she appears in a pair of classic white panties and a crop-top. Here's a link to the YouTube video Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball - YouTube uploaded by MileyCyrusVEVO
As the month of August drew to a close I looked back and noted more unfulfilled goals I tweeted on my Twitter a while back: "@Panty_Buns Plan #lingerie reviews of briefs by @Hanes@RagoShapewear@Elomi_lingerie@VF_Lingerie@Maidenform
I mentioned my most recent orders of full brief panties from HerRoom in a comment on their YouTube video titled "Undie Awards-Full Figured Winners 2013 - YouTube":
"misterpantybuns: I should have placed my recent orders at HerRoom in time to try them all before the Undie Award vote deadline. The Vanity Fair Lace Nouveau 13001 briefs are pretty and comfortable - though not quite as full cut and satiny soft as the Vanity Fair Ravissant 15712. Can't wait to try the others I ordered and model them I'm more full figured than the models shown and still wear either a size 5-6 in the Vanity Fair briefs. Cant wait to try the Rago 919, Shadowline 17042, Hanes 40S3 and Teri 331 briefs".

My Twitter list For Lovers of Lingerie:
ANOTHER UPDATE: More undies in the news at Burberry Prorsum Womenswear S/S14:
The tabloids were abuzz with the news when Paloma Faith put her Burberry lingerie on display at Burberry's Spring/Summenr 2014 fashion show at London Fashion Week. A Mail Online article featured a photo of Paloma Faith dressed to attend the Burberry Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show at London Fashion Week in an article titled: "So cute she just HAD to show them off: Paloma Faith exposes underwear in see-through skirt at Burberry show" included a nice (click here) photo of Paloma Faith showing off her Burberry's heart printed underwear with a totally see-through skirt in Mail Online She had a seat in the front row at the Burberry fashion show.
Several YouTube news Channels uploaded the short (1:56) Mail Online video of a briefs portion of an interview with Paloma Faith at the Burberry fashion show at London Fashion Week all having the same video title. Two of them were:
Paloma Faith shows off her knickers at London Fashion Week by CNN BREAKINGNEWS and;
Paloma Faith shows off her knickers at London Fashion Week by skynewsofficial012
YouTube user Burberry uploaded a brief video titled The Burberry Prorsum Womenswear S/S14 Show Highlights - shot entirely with iPhone 5s and on Set. 17th, 2013 uploaded a video titled: "Full Show - Burberry Prorsum Womenswear S/S14 - shot entirely with iPhone 5s". The video features a large number of see-through dresses. Quoting Burberry: "Celebrating rich British fabrics and expert craftsmanship, the Spring/Summer 2014 runway features intricate English lace and Scottish knitted cashmere in vibrant pastels and soft powdery hues". Though I could see Paloma Faith in the front row of the show I didn't see the heart print briefs. I thought many of the Burberry fashions were very pretty and there were some pretty looking full briefs visible through the dresses. The main reservation I had about the show was that I think using too many overly skinny models sends a bad message to young fashionistas and may encourage eating disorders.
I found the interview of Paloma Faith by YouTube user Triumph UK, (makers of Triumph Lingerie) very interesting. It is titled "Women in Making: Paloma Faith - YouTube"
TRANSCRIPT: "In this customer lingerie review I'm male-modeling a pair of Shimera Brand full brief panties in the colour Pink Beauty. To complement the pink colour and complete my blouse and panty outfit of the day, I've paired it with a lace applique peasant blouse in the colour Bimini Splash Blue. This pair of panties is made of nylon and spandex, a fairly high thread count, um the Fabric feels soft and the pair of panties is comfortable to wear. They're not as generously cut in the rear as I would like. Um, the fabric has somewhat of a dull finish, and other fabrics don't slide over it very easily. Um, for my liking the gusset could be a little more full. Um, this customer lingerie review is released into the public domain."
When I made this video I failed to mention the fact that the colour of these Shimera Seamless Full Briefs lived up to their name, 'PINK BEAUTY'. I decided that styling the blue peasant blouse with them in my Lbloggers OOTD would make a pretty contrast. I'm sure many women would like wearing the Shimera Seamless Full Brief Panty due to the looks and comfort. The pretty feminine pink colour and comfort of this panty are enough to make them a welcome addition to my panty drawer. I happened to buy the Shimera Briefs from Nordstrom and bought the blouse I styled them with from Dressbarn.
For me looks, comfort, and soft slippery feel against sensitive skin are each important in a panty. Do you buy briefs for looks? For comfort? for Feel? For all three? I'm still searching for the perfect panties with the best of all three attributes.
What do you think of the colours of the pink Shimera panties, the blue peasant blouse, pink and blue together in outfits, and the outfit I'm showcasing in this post?

In the customer lingerie video I made to go with this post I expressed my pleasure with this pair of Rago Shapewear panty briefs. The next time I order some of these briefs, however, I'll follow the recommended sizing for more comfort when wearing them all day long. The pair of Rago Shapewear Panty Briefs I wore with this outfit were WAY too tight - so tight that they don't appear nearly as attractive in the lingerie review video as they otherwise might have looked if I had purchased the correct size for myself.
The Rago Shaper Panty Brief With Lace Style 919, which I purchased from HerRoom, is a true full coverage brief having classic vintage style tailoring. The briefs have 9 1/2 inch side-seams, a 10 inch rise, and a cotton lined gusset. I love the retro styling of these briefs, and the stretch lace insets add a nice feminine touch. To complete my lingerie fashionista (Lbloggers) outfit of the day I paired the Rago Shapewear black lace-trim shaper briefs with a contrasting Elementz Women's Plus-Size Three-Quarter-Sleeve Sequined Eyelash Ruffle Top in Soft Candle Yellow from Macy's.
At one time Maidenform made and sold a wider selection of classic women's full brief nylon underpants than they do today. Maidenform full brief nylon panties had a very generous full mushroom shaped cotton lined gusset. The large curved rear seam of the gusset rose fairly high. I considered it to be a delightful design feature. The classically tailored vintage Maidenform briefs had some shape and were designed for real women, not toothpick-thin models. You can see how pretty this design feature was in my post titled "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams". These briefs used to come in a variety of colours including a gorgeous vibrant feminine pink. By the time I wrote the post "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 2" Maidenform's Tricot Full briefs were getting harder and harder to come by, the rear seam of the gusset was closer to being straight across, and the colour selection was sparse. Now it seems the only full briefs Maidenform is making are the Flexees Shaper Panties I'm seen modeling and reviewing in this post. Now that Maidenform has been acquired by Hanes Brands I'm hoping the more traditional briefs will regain some attention.
It only occurred to me after I noticed how pretty this pair of Magenta Maidenform Flexees shapewear panties looks on me in the photographs below, that perhaps the title of this post should have been Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 3 and be a sequel to my earlier posts.
My lingerie fashionista blouse and panty outfit of the day: A pair of Maidenform Flexees Weightless Comfort Briefs Style 2564 in "Magenta Me Crazy" from Bare Necessities styled with a Jaclyn Smith Women's Plus Floral Ruffle Top in Brooke Green from Kmart
Quoting from Kmart's webpage about the blouse I styled in this outfit:
"Liven up your look with the energetic style of this women's plus top by Jaclyn Smith. This silky shirt features a floral graphic and flutters with rows of eyelash ruffles, jazzing up any casual outfit with fashionable flair. Short sleeves and a V-neckline make it ideal for showing off your favorite jewelry."
Normally I try to avoid buying panties which don't have enough of a rise to come at least close to the natural waist, but the red heart print on this black size L EL8405 Elomi Valentina Brief was so pretty that I just couldn't resist buying and reviewing them. I decided to style these knickers with an American Rag short-sleeve lace-trim top in the colour '"Yellow Combo" from Macy's in order to provide a nice complementary colour contrast for my lingerie fashion OOTD and review. I purchased the Elomi Valentina heart print nylon briefs from Freshpair. Unfortunately while I was typing this post I noticed that the Elomi Valentina Brief from Freshpair (where I bought them) is currently being shown as no longer available. I do see that there are still a number of other Elomi Panty styles available for purchase there. The Elomi Valentina Brief is also showing as no longer currently available at HerRoom or at Bare Necessities either. You can check out the Latest Collections from Elomi Lingerie here (link to Elomi's site). The delightful pair of red on black heart print Elomi Valentina Briefs I ordered from Freshpair arrived promptly and I'm very happy to have received them before they were all sold out. It's too bad they're not widely available right now. I think these panties are perfect for Valentine's Day. The Elomi website (link): Elomi Lingerie - beautiful lingerie for the fuller figure.
The yellow blouse I chose to complement and contrast with the Elomi Valentina Brief Panties in my OOTD and review is an American Rag Plus Size Short Sleeve Top with Lace-Trim in Neon Yellow from Macy's.
I often have difficulty deciding what colour of full brief panties will look best styled with which blouse. I love the daisy print of the ros+ALI Daisy Print Poncho I styled in this blouse and panty outfit of the day, but it turned out to be much darker and more reddish in colour than it looked when I viewed it on the Dressbarn website, so I wound up choosing a different, lighter coloured pair of briefs for the blouse and panty OOTD than the ones I had originally considered reviewing.
After deciding to try styling the Daisy Print Poncho with briefs in a light blue or turquoise colour I had been planning to pair the top with a pair of Bettie Blue Full Cut Panties from Secrets In Lace. The fabric of the Bettie Blue Full Cut Panty is fabulous, having a nice sheen, a soft silky feel and I absolutely adore the rich vibrant colour. Unfortunately I ordered the panties in a size that is way, WAY too small for me, and them pair I received was not generously cut at all. If you order the Betty Blue Full Cut Panties from Secrets in Lace, I strongly recommend sizing upward. I did not send the pair I ordered back since it was I who failed to pay attention to the size chart. I had made the same mistake (not following the size guide) when ordering the lace trimmed Rago Shapewear Panty Brief I reviewed in an earlier post.
Since there was no way I could do the review of the panties from Secrets in Lace I decided to review a pair of pale pastel blue style 3945 Carole Nylon Lace Trim Briefs from Bealls instead. Carole is also one of the brands in the collection of panties that Satin Rose Intimates offers to custom dye in "SRI blue, SRI pink and SRI yellow with available extra lace at the waist and/or legs". Custom orders take time and it would be important to me to make sure the briefs were the style with the softer nylon having a higher thread count rather than the somewhat more coarse style 845 Acetate briefs if I were going to place a custom order. I did order some custom dyed Shadowline full briefs from Satin Rose intimates which I will (hopefully) review in a future post, but chose to go ahead and do this review of and in the pale pastel blue Carole full brief nylon panties from Bealls. Both Shadowline and Carole full briefs run fairly large in sizing.
THE WAY THE FABRIC OF A FULL BRIEF PANTY FEELS AGAINST MY SKIN and the way my panties fit are both extremely important to me. I love the feeling of wearing full coverage slippery soft nylon panties that both come up to my natural waist (around my belly button) and also have the elastic of the leg holes sit at the natural fold between my upper thigh and my bottom. The pair of Vanity Fair Ravissant briefs I'm reviewing today are a full coverage panty, have a satin sheen and a very slippery soft feel to them.
Both the Ravissant and Lace Nouveau full briefs by Vanity Fair could stand to have a more generously cut gusset, especially near the rear seam. I would love these briefs a lot more than I do if the rear seam of the cotton lined gusset was higher, longer and had a significant curve to it the way most vintage briefs do and the way Vanity Fair briefs used to three decades ago. Unfortunately in most of the Vanity Fair briefs the rear seam of the gusset is sewn straight-across and is close to the same length as the front gusset seam. Most people are bigger in the back than in the front, so you would think briefs should be tailored that way instead making them in whatever way runs fastest through the sewing machines. Other than that one tailoring issue I love the VF Lingerie nylon full briefs.
Apparently I'm not alone in loving how the Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Style 15712 full briefs look and feel either They are a former Undie Award winner. Speaking of the Undie Awards, on April 2nd Tomima Edmark of HerRoom did a new blog post titled: "Vote in the 8th Annual Undie Awards! | Tomima's Blog - Lingerie & Underwear Expert". You can vote for your favourites here. I'm conflicted. There are many different brands and styles I love but I haven't found the perfect panty yet.
Whenever I see an opportunity to purchase, review and wear pretty new pairs of silky-soft and comfortable panties in the brands, styles, and colours I long to own in my size, I generally jump at it. I will often put aside any preferences I have for specific retailers in order to get a the panties I want so that I can slip into a pair as soon as is practical. , it comes to purchasing a brand and style of full briefs I like in a colour and size I long to own, I will often put aside any preferences I have for specific retailers in order to get a the panties I want and slip a pair on as soon as is practical. At the time I bought them the Vanity Fair Style 15712 Classic Ravissant Full Brief Panty was shown as being available in Park Avenue Purple, Soft Blue and Midnight Black from Bare Necessities. I have previously purchased them in White and Soft Blue from HerRoom, in Black from Macy's, and in Fuchsia Applique from Kohls. Eons ago I had owned a pair of Ravissant briefs in the colour Potpourri Pink (swoon) and had also purchased Vanity Fair Lace Nouveau lace inset nylon panties in the colours Silk Rose and Fuchsia Shock from J C Penney. If only they were available in those colours again!
UPDATE: I just tried to order some Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Tailored Brief Panties Style15712 from HerRoom in the colour "English Lilac", size 5 only to get the message: "English Lilac Not Manufactured in the selected size". I went ahead and ordered 2 pairs in size six even though I knew they'd be a bit large for me. I'm feeling very frustrated that I can't find briefs like these in my size in the colours like the ultra-feminine neon pink I love so much. Why don't lingerie companies make panties in the most feminine colours and available in all sizes?
