If you’re a masculine-of-center / butch woman, shopping for lingerie can be triggering. Why does women’s lingerie always consist of pink frills, push-up bras and thongs thinner than floss? The women’s underwear that claims to be “boy’s shorts” are mysteriously tight and short, but underwear from the men’s section is often too large and baggy.
Recently, Elite Daily offered a few tips for how masculine-of-center women can think outside of the gender box. Here are the best of the tips:
Here’s the kicker – wear them without a bra.
You can’t exactly take this outfit out to work (unless you have a very, very lenient boss), but it’s perfect for when you’re expecting late-night guests at home. The suspenders are alluring yet masculine, showing enough to be scandalous but not emasculating.
Some tomboys want to wear binders in order to completely flatten their chests, but if that doesn’t appeal to you, consider sports bras. They flatten out your chest without damaging your ribcage, and they’re extremely easy to remove once you get to the bedroom.
Fitted Briefs with Room for a Strap-On
RodeoH underwear believes that there shouldn’t be a line between business and pleasure. These flattering, form-fitting briefs are specifically made by queer women, for queer women, and they come with a hole in the front for a dildo. Say goodbye to bulky harnesses.
If you like to pack, then the hole also makes it easy to slip a packer in. The underwear is so comfortable that you can wear the packer all day.
Tuxedo and Motorcycle Vests
Headed out to a gay bar and really want to make a statement? Planning an especially kinky night for you and your girlfriend? Go bra-less beneath a silky tuxedo or studded leather motorcycle vest. The lack of sleeves will still let you flex your biceps, but the revealing nature of the outfits shows that you’re ready for an adventure.
