Yay Or Nay: ‘Mantyhose’, Pantyhose For Men?

‘Pantyhose for men’ is a trend that’s starting to take off.

Italian designer Emilio Cavallini created a range of pantyhose, or ‘brosiery’, for men—because men make up 2-3% of the fashion house’s customers.

The ‘mantyhose’ is believed to be unisex, beneficial to health, practical and fashionable all at the same time.

e-MANcipate.net has jumped onto the bandwagon, and is now solely selling these pantyhose for men.

“Actually there’s nothing gender-specific in this garment. It’s not designed for women, like the bra, to fit any female organs, therefore it is, by definition, unisex,” the site wrote.

“Although today [pantyhose] are mostly worn by women, it was not so for a long time—pantyhose-like garments were worn exclusively by men for centuries.”

e-MANcipate also believes that the male-pantyhose gives men’s legs a “nice look and a smooth touch”, especially during winter—instead of wearing bulky undergarments and long pants, users can pair the mantyhose with shorts to show off their legs.

The site has also provided a detailed, illustrated male pantyhose wearer's survival guide for men, on how to put on their pantyhose.
