Hey I've heard of man hoes before...I see nothing wrong with men wearing panty hose..but if they start wearing man bras on those man boobs then that's just wrong.

I can't imagine seeing my husbands pantyhose hanging over the shower curtain. geesh!

I like wearing pantyhose because they are like some kind of high-tech underwear. I started wearing them under my jeans for warmth during cold Michigan winters. One day I realized they also have a cooling effect when worn with shorts (how is that possible?). Since then I also wear them in the summer with shorts from time to time, but I'd boil in them underneath pants as summers here are very humid.
I have to admit that I'm not too crazy about the look, they remind me of older ladies (grandmas?), so they are better hidden under jeans. My wife never wears them and tbh I'm glad as I so much prefer bare leg look.
I wear them more for utilitarian purpose then fashion statement

The transvestite underworld must have gotten hold of this thread. ;)

As someone who's had to live and work in extremely cold temperatures, including Alaska and northern Minnesota, Im open to wearing anything to keep warm. But technology has made thermo underwear far superior to just throwin' on a pair of ladies' pantyhose.

So if utility is your motivation, then there is men's thermo underwear which comes in all shapes and sizes.

As for athletics, there are different kinds of men's support wear, like supporters, girdles, etc. Men's support gear fitted and fashioned for men can actually improve athletic performance by providing the necessary support and resistance needed for optimum muscle use. And Im not reading a promo either.

So all that being said, why are men wearing women's panty hoses?

I wear pantyhose,(sheers in various color tones) and Tights (also in various colors) every day with shorts, whether running errands, bike riding, or just hanging out. They do wonders for my legs and circulation, besides making a nicer appearance.(Suntans look great).
My SO does not mind, and now she is also wearing lots more to eliminate leg fatique. Most ppl have too much on their minds to notice or care.
Try it, they feel great and massarge your legs. It is a win win.

I've been a cross-dresser all my life. I hate to get up and put on my clothes. I get real "cross" and swear. I'd rather stay in bed and read and listen to the radio.

I would imagine the cost factor has something to do with it as well. Men's supportive products can be so costly.

Just wear two pairs of jogger pants like I do. And two pair of socks.

I am as smug as a rug on a bug.

Cost is the big issue. I need at least 3 pairs to rotate. That means $120-$150 for underarmour, while good 3 pairs of pantyhose run $15-$30.
In reality there is not much difference between them, except the name - the stigma associated with the term 'pantyhose'. Both are tight fitting garments. So why would I spend so much more on underarmour?
There are pantyhose made for men too which I tried, but there is not that much difference between men and women pantyhose IMO (sizing it the main factor; unless you're 6'4 and 230lb and need big size

I am a married 42 year old, 5'10" well muscled, race car driving, individual who often wears tights!
NO ONE would accuse me of being anything but a "real male". My wife supports my choice and has even bought me a few pair of tights. I prefer the thicker tights to the thinner pantyhose. I like my legwear to be opaque as I am NOT going to shave my legs. And I wear for comfort and simply because I want to. Although I usually wear underneath a pair of jeans or slacks, as soon as the weather permits, I plan to start jogging in shorts and tights around my own neighborhood...unabashedly and unashamed...

And yes, I think my legs look great in them, and so does my wife!

I am 41 straight male, married. I am an avid bicyclist and have been riding for over 32 years. Over the years I have been riding more and more Century rides and yes, I absolutely wear support hose when riding in the cold. They do provide warmth and help with circulation. I'll wear them to work under my jeans or slacks during the colder months. My wife often says "I love seeing your legs in hose..." When i tell my fellow bikers about them, they laughed at first, now almost all of them are believers and ride with them on the colder days. Plus, us men need the extra support for the parts, if you know what I mean, for under those bike shorts.

this is to all you males out there that think its not normal freakish or what ever. A lot of men do wear pantyhose for support for their legs. it does help improve circulation. It does help if you have vercious veins. also in the colder months tights and pantyhose help keep you warm.i would do something skin tight over bulk. under my pants.and to all the ladies that are supportive of men wearing pantyhose way to go! who knows maybe men should wear openly with shorts what do you ladies think of that ? i am one that would be willing to do it if your willing to be supportive in public

Another man fallen by the wayside. There is a line between what men should and should not do. Now go wash that mascara off od your face and turn on the Man Show.
