Whether called "bloomers," "Spankies," or "dance pants," there is a particular style of undergarment that is produced to complement the uniform - coming in matching colors and usually accompanying the basic uniform.
The most well-known body shaper undergarment is the corset, which has undergone numerous iterations in its long history and is still worn today, although more commonly as a fetish or fantasy piece of lingerie.
Ross, the founder of PantiesForMen.com, shares insights on common myths about men wearing feminine lingerie, the unique nature of this business, and popular undergarment styles in this LoveToKnow interview.
