Are certain articles of clothing intended for one gender ok for the other gender to wear?

    The question posed “Do you think of a man’s thong as panties?” brought to mind this broader question.

    The topic of men wearing women’s panties has been thoroughly discussed on the former TMB forum and most likely will be resurrected for discussion on this new and improved QnA TMB site.

    One article  of men’s clothing that  women wear is a white dress shirt. When women don this gender crossing article of clothing, it is viewed by many as sexy, particularly if several buttons are left undone and the shirt length provocatively outlines her buttocks, hips, etc.

    If this “trans-gender” clothing exchange is ok where do we draw the line?

      It seems to me that the heart of the passage is really about gender roles. Women, be feminine and who God created you to be without usurping roles…and a woman can be quite feminine in a man’s button up shirt.  Men, be masculine, be who God created you to be…. and men can be quite masculine in the color pink or wearing a kilt (a man skirt😉).

        I think we should draw the line at rompers. Men should absolutely NOT wear them.

        Seriously, I love the idea of my DW wearing one of my dress shirts. And nothing else. In the privacy of our bedroom.

          SC’s comment is very insightful. After pondering articles of women’s clothing (truly made for a woman) that a man  might wear, I can think of nothing that would make him feel more masculine. OTOH, a woman wearing a man’s  white dress shirt is very sexy and feminine. A wife going about her day at home in her husband’s white dress shirt could cause her to get horny to the point of needing to masturbate. That would be hot and ok (my opinion).

          However, we know there are men on TMB who have slipped on a pair of their wive’s spandex panties to feel close to her and use the pressure of the garment to masturbate in them. These men would say that act and experience is bringing their masculine heterosexuality to the fore by intimately enjoying the feel, touch, and idea of their wive’s in them.

          The question then becomes, “Is this ok?”

            Yes, this is okay.  First, the passage we would be referencing is old covenant. That is not our covenant.  That is a full stop, but to go further….  The scenario you described, off of my memory, doesn’t even go against anything in the New Testament… it is not a homosexual or even an effeminate lifestyle, that is warned about not inheriting the kingdom of God.

                At least not if you wear it because it is intended for another.

                  I do not think men’s thongs as panties at all.  Panties are…well…panties.

                    In our marriage, he love s to see her in a thong, and she too loves to see him in a “man’s thong”.  Especially when he becomes aroused and starts to rent his thing.  There are things made for DH’s that allow for better anatomical comfort
