Man-cami

Postby Daryl » Fri May 04, 2018 4:54 pm

Hi folks, I just posted a new topic in Pics & Looks named "Mancami".

The camisole is a satisfying and somewhat more femme alternative to the traditional, inelegant and ugly "wife-beater" tank-top traditionally available to men, allowing more air-on-skin whilst still not running afoul of "no shirt no service" rules. In that post I illustrate a conversion that makes it possibly even more man-friendly. Camis can be had for very little money if you shop at the right time of the year, and in a wide variety of colours (as are afforded to women but less so to men).

I think it possible that if men ever get over their fear of anything currently imagined as feminine, and discover the pleasures of extra air on skin thanks to well-placed straps, something like the mancami might be the gateway garment.

For the record, I am just being cute. I don't call my purse a "man-purse". Nor would I call my pantyhose "mantyhose", were I ever to wear such. "Mancami" is just a quick designator for "converted to perhaps be more convenient for men".

The camis that I buy are just a couple of quid each and come in a variety of colours of which black, blue, lilac, purple and white are my favourites. I haven't come across any yellow ones yet. Anyway they're just camis really. I don't agree with the trend of adding "man" to the front of something to make them appear acceptable. Sorry, Daryl, on that point.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Agreed. Wouldn't like it if it was called a "manisole" or a "camibro" either!
