A Basic Guide to Bras for Men

Updated on December 12, 2016

Many men love to wear bras, but quickly become confused when confronted with the plethora of bras that are available on the market today. There are a wide range of terms and types of bra that can be a bit befuddling. That's why I've prepared this simple guide to walk you through the more common types of bra, and give you a few pointers on which might be best for you. This article does assume at least a basic knowledge of the brassiere, as may be obtained by sneaking into lingerie drawers, panty raids, and other nefarious and not so nefarious means.

Demi Cup - The demi cup bra is, as it sounds, a bra that covers half the area a normal bra covers. A great variation to try if you want to get a little more revealing without going all the way to the very naughty bras listed below. Put simply, the demi cup bra is sexy without being completely slutty. These bras may also fit some men better without all the extra bunching that can occur with the unneeded material that comprises traditional brassieres.

Open Tip Bras - These naughty bras look like a normal bra at first glance, but the quick double take reveals that this bra does not cover the nipples at all! This is a great option for men who want to feel the lace against their chest, but also want something a little different, or a little more revealing.

Shelf Bras - These bras are similar to the open tipped bras, but instead of having material that covers the 'breast' region with an opening for the nipples, these bras are constructed only with a lower shelf which is designed to support the breasts.

Underwire Bras - An underwire bra may be pretty, but it may also be uncomfortable for a man or a woman. Underwire bras are designed to give women more shape to their breasts, but when a man wears them all he gets is the chafing of the wire against his ribs with none of the gain of extra cleavage. (Unless of course, you're filling that bra up.) Some underwire bras are more comfortable than others, and if you really like the bra, it being underwire shouldn't necessarily put you off. Just be aware that there may be some hard rubbing sensations to put up with.

Sports Bras - These may not be the best choice for a man who likes to wear bras as they are primarily designed to support the female figure, and not do much else. Most sports bras are fairly plain affairs with more architecture than many bridges. You can recognize a sports bra from the plain and drab fabric, the ventilation which may come in the form of a mesh that surrounds the seams (don't get excited at the word mesh, we're not talking sexy mesh here, we're talking solid industrial style mesh.)

Strapless Bras - Another case of obviousness here. Strapless bras are simply bras that are designed to stay on simply through friction. There are no shoulder straps, and the bra simply wraps around the chest region. Strapless bras can also tend to be a bit on the plain side as they are designed primarily to give support under clothing, and not as a stand alone piece of lingerie desire. However, if you are prepared to look, there are some rather sexy little numbers out there.

That should be enough information to give you at least a start in the bra seeking game. Feel free to ask any questions you might have in the comments section if you would like more.

        Just say "no" to "men's bras". Take a hard look at your value system, and join the mainstream - real men don't wear lingerie.

        I started wearing a bra recently, after a heart problem I was given a pace maker and put on medication, one of the side effects was slight breast growth and nipple soreness. The other issue is the pacemaker sits on my left breast and causes irritation. My wife suggested I try a sports crop top and that helped a lot. I tried compression tops but the were hot and quite uncomfortable and did not stop the irritation of my nipples. My wife got me a selection of sports bras and normal bras to try. I was somewhat embarrassed to wear a bra and my wife said it was a bit wierd adjusting her husband's bra straps, but after trying several styles and trying to find styles that could be worn without being seen I was prepared to give it a try. My breasts are not large and I am a 40 inch chest so an A to B cup is about right. After the initial embarrassment and discomfort, I must say the relief and support made it worthwhile. After a while I braved wearing it out of the house and now after 3 months rarely go braless even for sleeping. I have a couple of wide back from fastening sport bras that are really good. Strangely though some under wire T shirt bras work very well and are surprisingly comfortable. And much to my surprise some non under wire lace bras are extremely comfortable. I have come to terms with it now and my wife is happy that I have stopped complaining about. So guys with a little effort you can wear a bra undetected and enjoy a bit of comfort for your bombs.

        Hello Hope,

        I enjoyed your article very much.

        Bras have been a very interesting part of my life since childhood. I have worn bras of all sorts and I have and still do enjoy them very much.

        I love dressing up as a lady just about any time. My bra is usually the first thing that

        I put on. Unfortunately not having breast, I must inprovise and that has to be just right.. Fully dressed, my bras is one of my main assets, besides my legs covered with my best pantyhose, and no panties normally.

        I adore nice breast, just wish I had nice ones too to fill my bra with. I love the looks and the feel of lovely breast under my clothing, whether it a nice evening dress or a skirt and top for the day.

        Thank you for you input in choose a good bra.

        Rhonda

        I am so glad there are others like me especially the feeling of a change of personality which are such a luxury. I have loved wearing bra's since I was 10 year old. My mother had a wonderful figure and was also tall. Seeing her run from the bathroom to her bedroom soon convinced that I was a boob man and after that things went from bad to worse. Trying on her bra's then knickers moving on to stretchy tops and then skirts I was hooked. I now wear a bra and panties all the times I can, I do love large breasts and enjoy filling my bra's with the breast forms. I have now found a very comfortable bra and enjoy the shaping this gives my 44" DD being easy to wear for long periods as well as sleeping in. I am concerned with this obsession with bra's and wearing them as I enjoy it to much but equally I love to see a women with nice breasts.

        Only the other day in a café the waitress was very sweet and petit as I struggles to maintain my attention with my friends. She knew she had my attention and always walking around the table to show her DDs. I wondered what she would have thought that I could match her at home

I prefer panties with a full back and lightly padded underwire and push-ups. I find everything I need at Walmart. I keep my secret hidden but it makes me fill exhilerated!

        I personally have five bras and about 25 pairs of panties I don't have many men underwear left as I'm trying to get rid of them. I like wearing pantyhose and dresses I have 6 nice dresses mostly in pink. I have a garter belt with some nice thigh highs which I really like I try to wear them as much as possible throughout the day underneath my clothes. At night I mainly sleep in panties and a bra they feel so comfortable. I also like wearing makeup especially lip stick and eyeliner I'm getting pretty good about applying it. A lot of times at like 1 o'clock in the morning I'll go outside fully dressed with a bra panties and a full dress with makeup on I love it. Some nights I don't even care if I get caught by somebody I actually hope I do sometimes.

        I do not like to wear a bra so much but I have to do it every day because of large breasts (40C). It helps, less chafing and it is a good daily support during work and gym. I don't care what people might think, it is my body and I have to take care of it.

        I've begun wearing breastforms and bras because they put me in touch with my softer, more female side. That was denied me growing up and it's hurt me. I haven't been in touch with my feelings and emotions very well and it's damaged me in my relationships. My wife supports me in this. I think she can see the difference it's made in our lives.

        Is it a fetish, or an obsession? How would I know except I have a pretty good understanding of psychology. Yes, It's possible. All I know is that it's been good for me and for my marriage, so...who cares?

        I have been wearing bras and panties(and all sorts of other pretty feminine stuff) for 25yrs now. My wife knows and approves. I love to wear a bra under my shirt and go shopping. Also, I'll put on a pair of hi cut panties with a low cut pair of jeans so when I stoop down in a store they show. Very exciting!!! Nothing beats the feeling of wearing a bra and pretty panties!!!!

        Susan.transgirl; Vincent; visitor209; and all...: Ah, lingerie on a budget is always a challenge. Right now Kohls has clearance items at greatly reduced prices. Last week panties were 3/9.99. This weekend they dropped them to 3/7.99. The selection of VF, Jockey, Bali, Olga, Warners, Maidenform is getting picked over but may still be worth your look. Name brand bras on clearance are 11.99. Not bad.

        People noticing? Maybe some. But it will be a rare person who will say anything. Some may be in denial. That's their way of dealing with reality. Others may be kindly interested. I'm waiting for the supportive comment. I expect someone will.

        If you're interested in pantliners JCPenney just got a shipment. at prices comparable and in some cases lower than their 2005 catalogue. Yes, they are catalogue order. The sizing shown in the website is accurate. I ordered one full length XL thinking I'd need the room. Too large. I ordered the Misses L next go around. They fit fine and feel great under jeans and as pajamas. I have picked up a very nice quality selection of pettipants (14, 20 and 24 inch lengths)in like-new condition at thrift stores. Sometimes their size and care tags have been cut off. I have a method to judge size by using my hand span and/or forearm length. Or you can compare with another item in the rack which has its tags.

        It's a rewarding challenge. Good luck and God bless.

        since this article is for men I would suggest first sizing yourself with a measuring tape no no not the hardwear store the one used by clothing makers called a cloth measuring tape. then go online and type your measurements into a free bra size caculator.(most bra size calculator pages/websites have instructions on proper bra measuring)

        here is a good one I found http://www.85b.org/ they also have a size converter so you can get the right bra if your shopping out of the country.

        then try these online stores (the only place I found my size) http://www.aalingerie.com/ and http://www.daintylady.co.uk/

        they both carry my size witch is a 38 aa they also carry aaa

        I love to go shopping for a nice bra or pair of panties. I have started shopping a K-Mart or Wal-Mart for inexpensive bras. I am wearing a nice soft cup (38D) pink bra. I think it only cost six dollars. Unfortunately I have to by my favorite Vanity Fair panties at more expensive department stores. I wonder if anyone notices, when I wear just a tee shirt over my bra?

        i have been wearing womens underwear of a kinds all my life i am 45 years old straight & single and very free spirited and open there is nothing wrong with wearing a bra or pantees or suspenders and stocking they feel great against your skin and the tightness against your thighs also front buttoned dresses are fantasic with the right underwear, underwired bra's are better as you can fill tem out with fillets and the stick on fillets are a lot better as they mover with you they stick on your chest and peel of with ease and will clip togeter to give you a bussom, there great,as one previous comment said women wear what they like is a woman wears a suit it classed as sexy and if you wear a dress your a perv, its time people opened there eyes were in the 21st century anyone should be able to wear what feels comfy, i have been arrested for wearing a bra in public under my clothes it was noticed and i was given a warning for lewd conduct, i was also warned whilst shopping and trying on a bra in contessa the police were called and i was humiliated in front of other shoppers also ridiculed and humiliated in a well known mature ladys clothes shop bon marche be careful guys not all women are comfotable with us guys wearing there clothes and underwear they can become vindictive and malisious towards any man that looks better in there underwear then they do,when in a private dressing room trying on a bra do it fast and quick as not all shoppers agree i have had good exp and very bad and most assistants are brillient but there are a few so be careful and hold your head up high and be proud of who you are never be ashamed or being a crossdresser or wearing a bra and if your wife has a problem with it just remind her that jeans and hair dryers were designed for men ?

        I'm a straight guy who is overweight. So I can fill a C cup. I love that I can do that. But now that I'm in my 20s, I'm starting to think about my health and know that I need to lose weight. I'm going to hate loosing these boobs.

        It's come to the point where I'm a regular shopper in Victoria Secrets, Fredricks of Hollywood, Charlotte Russe & Ann Taylor. My girlfriend loves that I have a vibrant feminine side. We like to have girls night out dates. Basically, we'll go out to dinner, see a chick-flick and go lingerie shopping. To top it off, I'm considered one of the girls when I go shopping with her girlfriends.

        I love everything about them, the shape/colours etc and really enjoy going shoping for them (or buying online) Wearing them just makes me feel happy and good with myself, If you've ever been curious about wearing one then go ahead and give it a try

        My husband is a nurse who has very femmine looks and long hair with his ears pierced. He wears panties and bras everyday and no one blinks an eye because he looks so natural in them. They are noticible under his scrubs and his bra is very noticible every time he bends over which is alot in his daily activities. He wears nothing but victoria secrets bras and panties and I just love his of work outfits also, tight tops and jeans.

        If you want the right size get measured I did at Debenhams. For a lot of men bra wearing is normal and necessary requirement to suppoort manboobs. I also only wear panties which are much more comfortable than pants and have just started using tights or knee-highs. They keep my legs warm and are beter for my feet. Again a lot men wear tights

        i do belive for a man to wear a bra & panties. he has to be free in spirit. ive only been wearing bras & panties for about 6mo. and i only wished i had started years earlier. when i am wearing there is nothing else like the feeling that comes from a fine bra & well fitting panties

        I Love Bras 

        9 years ago

        What's wrong with a straight male wearing bras? Women have worn men's clothes forever it seems, so, why shouldn't men be aable to wear bras? I love a good molded cup bra, usually in private, a couple of times I have worn a bra under my regular clothes while going out for the day.

        I love to shop for bras at WalMart and JCPennys, doesn't bother me. If a sales clerk asks me who it's for, I just say, for my girlfriend.

        I love shopping in the linbgere section.

        Feeling good in a bra and loving it.

        It seems that a large number of males like wearing bras. I am a crossdresser so of course I love wearing a bra, as well as all other items of lingerie. I actually have about 25 bras. I prefer an underwire with silicone forms. I laso occasionally wear a bra and panties under my male clothes. I find it interesting that there are men who are straight but love wering bras. Since women may freely wear virtually any item of male clothing, perhaps this will become more acceptable. It certainly doesn't hurt anyone.

        Getting an allinone that fits the male torso is not easy. If you don´t find one then maybe the combination of girdle and longlinebra might be your choice. Women and men have a different hip waist ratio so often a girdle and a longline fits much better with a man.

        As LatexLeah commnted several months ago, the "all in one" is left out. I have been wearing panties and bras and would like to get a "all in one" but don't know what size to get. I have tried some on but they never are long enough in the torso. Hope, do you or anyone have any suggestions? I just love the feel of satin against my body.

        I love wearing bras and do so almost every day. My wife found out about my little secrate but I have been working up to it buy wearing hers in front of her from time to time. I do wear one out and about sometimes but not as much in summer. The girls bras are the way to go to get one that fits as far as the cup goes but they are limited as far as adjustment sometimes. The hard part is to try on allot of sizes that"might not be your size" such as I find a D bra has the right size underwire for me but often the cup size is not right. No kidding you say but if you find one that is a stretchy one they do fit quite nice. The "A" cup bra is often the go to but the under wire is to small to fit from side to side so it floats on top and when you raise your arms it climbs up. So what I am getting to is go for a larger size but stretchy. Hope this helps

        I have never been caught wearing a bra but I have seen another guy out there wearing one. FYI

        I buy my own. Be a man and buy yours too. Number one reason I ended up divorced: Wife couldn't handle the thought of me in women's underwear. Shattered her image of me. I dream of a day when men are as free as women to express themselves openly. Time to shatter the taboos... Join me by wearing your bra and panties to work tomorrow... C'mon, you know you want to.

        Alas, the grand old "all in one" is left out, once again. They keep pantyhose up, breast forms in place and the look smooth. Maybe they're old fashioned in today's fast paced society but back in the good ol' days when men were men... wait, that doesn't work.

        My husband wears a bra, at first I was troubled but now I'm fine with it. He wears a 36A underwire, lightly padded. I buy them for him in the girls department at Kmart or Walmart. He has a pastel blue, beige, black and white. I don't care to have him wear anthing pink or with lace. Most of the girls style bras have the adjusters on the front so they don't show as much.My sister always gives him a bra and pantie set for his birthday.

        Don't knock it if you haven't tried on a bra that fits you well.

        i have been wearing panties for a long time. my wife sometimes picks them out. most of the panties have lace on hem. they feel very good on my body. if women can wear boxers why should we looked like we are weird. if you have not tried wearing you are missing out on the feel of them
