Valentines Day Gifts and Tips!

So you’re looking for something to buy your guy for Valentines day.  First, let’s work out where your guy sits in the world of lingerie-

* Is he into lingerie but he keeps a low profile because you’re not into it?

* Perhaps you’re both open minded and love dressing up and having some fun?

* He’s fully committed to lingerie and loves our underwear

* He knows nothing about lingerie but you think it might be fun and kinda sexy to see him dressed up?

To begin, if your partner is into lingerie and doesn’t make any kind of fuss about it even if you know, then choosing something is easy.  Because he won’t care what you purchase for him – he’ll just be thrilled that you thought of purchasing lingerie at all!  If your guy fits this profile, then pick anything you like and he’ll love you for it!  Have some fun yourself and go with Lucy if he’s into thongs and Katie if he prefers briefs.

Lucy is a crotchless thong and peekaboo bra designed for fun!

If you’re both into lingerie then the easy answer is sit down with your guy and choose something together.  If you prefer to make it a surprise then you will likely know what styles he likes and doesn’t like.  Looking for something feminine in a full set? Try Anneve.  Want something comfortable and fun?  Try a Katie Romper.  Want a comfortable set that’s a little subtle?  Retro is the best bet.

Retro Gold is our Very High Cut brief and matching bra.

Is your guy one of our lingerie fans.  Can’t wait for the next new release and has a bit of everything in the drawer?  If you know our business model then you will understand that once we sell out of something then it’s gone for good.  If your guys has a drawer full of our lingerie then find out what he loves best!  Shouldn’t be too hard because he’ll be favoring that special pair of panties or that bra or teddy all the time.  Just find out what it is and purchase a couple of them so he has spares before we run out of stock!

Or do you fall into the last group.  Perhaps you’re the one interested in lingerie for guys and you want to dress him up and have some fun.  But you don’t know how he’s going to take it?  Or you’re concerned he may not like the idea?  If he’s absolutely a beginner in lingerie and you have no idea what his reaction might be, then go with the PinStripe range.  The boyshort, brief and vest are all fairly masculine looking but are made from beautiful soft fabric.  If you think he’s a step up from that range and you really want to see him dressed up then we recommend Miranda for a full satin feeling or Heart for a brief playful print.

 

If your guy is new to lingerie, try him out on something subtle like PinStripe.

How to measure yourself (for lingerie)

One of the comments you often hear in regard to lingerie is that it’s beautiful, but uncomfortable.  Our goal has always been to create lingerie that was not only beautiful, but comfortable enough to wear all day.

Comfort and fit can be pretty subjective for individuals.  Some guys like to wear lingerie and be aware they are wearing it at all times under daily outerwear.  For others, choosing what lingerie to wear each day is part of the fun, as is getting undressed in the evening.  However through the day they want to concentrate on work or whatever needs to be done without the distraction of underwear that isn’t the best fit.

At Hommemystere we’ve always tried to create lingerie that provided a mix of fun and practicality.  The size information we provide is specific to each garment because the fabric and elastics used to make each garment have their own variations.

The most important thing to know is your own measurements.  And that doesn’t mean knowing your measurements ten years ago when you were going through that fitness phase or even 12 months ago.  It’s knowing your measurements today.  That will give you the best chance of getting the right size in the garment of your choice.

Once you know your measurements, think about the kind of fit you prefer.  Some guys like a very firm fit that really holds everything in place tightly.  Other guys prefer a more relaxed fit.  Something that is barely noticeable.

For our bras and briefs, measure as per the pics

Measure where the bra band sits around the chest

For panties, measure around the hips

Always read the product description carefully.  If you’re on the cusp of a size, we make recommendations on whether to go up or down a size.

Generally, if you want a more relaxed fit, we will recommend going up a size.  And if you’re not sure, you can always get in touch with us or make a note on your order.  Plus, if you add your measurements to the order we will send you what we think is the best fit.

Tracy has arrived

What a great time to release some swimwear! Our friends in the northern hemisphere are freezing so the only practical place for many will be in a nicely warmed up spa.

Fortunately, we’re in the middle of a mini heatwave here in Australia so it’s a great time for our guys to try something a little different.

There’s no doubt those of you into lingerie have perused the women’s swimwear range from time to time and considered the idea of having you’re own tie side brief or one piece swimwear to try.

Lucky for you, so have we.  And here it is.  Much later than anticipated, Tracy has arrived in a brief, halterneck top and one piece.  We decided if swimwear was your thing, then you may as well stand out from the crowd and do it in something hot pink!

Swimwear

I can’t imagine too many of you wearing this set on a public beach but if you do, I’m sure it will attract plenty of attention!  And you have to send us a pic for our Tumblr feed too please!

To celebrate the release of Tracy, you can receive 30% off when you spend $40USD or more.  Buy the brief and top or the one piece alone for a total of more than $40 to receive the discount.

Just enter the coupon code word ‘swimwear‘ when going through the checkout to take advantage.

Limited time only (10 days or until stocks run out) and won’t be discounted again until May/June so take advantage today!

Celebrate Christmas with Free Shipping!

We’ve just gone through the craziest Cyber Monday sale period ever with our first day of sales exceeding the full five day period from 2015.  The Post Office jokingly threatened to ‘close the doors’ on us due to the volume of orders we were carrying into them!

Thanks to everyone that took part and though many of you won’t receive your order for another week or so, I’m sure you will love the lingerie!

Our next release will be swimwear which probably isn’t too exciting for all our northern hemisphere clients currently freezing your butts off at the beginning of winter.  However for those of us downunder, it’s going to be a super hot summer and swimwear is at the top of mind at the moment.  I expect to be releasing the swimwear in the first or second week of January and will have more photos going out to subscribers in the next week or so.  But here’s a quick look for now.

Swimwear Swimwear

 

For now Christmas is coming fast and as a gift to anyone that didn’t take advantage of the Cyber Monday sale (probably no more than 2 of you based on the sales!) we’re offering free shipping right through until New Years Day.

Just use the coupon code word xmas16 when going through the checkout to receive the offer!

Katie arriving soon!

With only a week until our biggest sale period of the year, we’re pleased to announce that Katie has arrived and will be available for purchase from Thursday November 24th.

The Katie set is comprised of a lovely blue fabric that is almost sheer, with black lace edging.  The soft bra and panty will be on high rotation in your lingerie drawer but we’re even happier with the design and fit of our first romper outfit!

Made with a full front, open back, crossover straps and cute shorts on the bottom, the Katie romper will be a favorite.

Miranda has arrived at HommeMystere

After quite a long wait, Miranda, our new set has finally arrived and is now available.  Miranda is comprised of a panty, garter belt and bra set made from stretch satin and sheer fabric.  Miranda looks great and feels even better!

Subscribers to our newsletter will be familiar with our recent supply issues that appear to have finally been resolved.  That’s the good news.  The even better news for our clients is we had to make several thousand of the Miranda garment which gives us a little more leeway in pricing.

So for visitors wanting to try a little satin in very comfortable underwear, Miranda is an ideal starting point.  And to make it easier for you, we are offering a special offer for the remainder of this month of 30% off the retail price.  Just purchase a minimum of any two Miranda pieces (bra/panty – panty/garter – panty/panty) or any other combination.  Use the coupon code miranda16 when going through the checkout and you will receive 30% off.

Sale will end October 31 2016!

Update – If you unsuccessfully tried the coupon code, it is now working again!  Available for use once per customer.

New style arriving soon

Well it’s been a while since our last release and something new has been long overdue.  The good news is we’ll have the white satin set (pictured below) arriving within the next couple of weeks.

White Satin Set

 

The as yet unnamed set is comprised of a bra/panty/garter and is made very similar to the Genevieve set which has since sold out in a few of the sizes.

The satin is a one way stretch fabric that is both light and comfortable to wear and we expect it to be very popular.  We also had to produce quite a few more of this style than we would normally and that means our customers will benefit.

Newsletter subscribers will receive an unprecedented offer on this set when released in exchange for the patience shown by our loyal customers.  To receive the offer just visit our main page and subscribe to our newsletter.

Want to know about our sleepwear/swimwear sets?  We should have more news on those in early October..

Receive a free teddy with your order!

Teddy

I think it’s time to reward all of my blog readers with a freebie.  I’m sure both of you are a little bored with my intermittent posting but in my defense, I’m a man of few words.

In an earlier post you may have seen how much I raved about our Taylor Teddy.  I wasn’t kidding, it’s easily the nicest Teddy we have made in terms of fit and comfort.  Wear it to bed, wear it out under clothes or wear it alone around the house, it’s a super comfy piece of lingerie. But as has happened once before, there is a little issue with the Teddy.   This time the Teddy is perfect in every sense except for some minor discoloration in the peach fabric.

So instead of going through the whole return it to the factory and get more made and sent to me and so on and so on, I have a better idea.  It’s far more fun and rewarding to give them away.  Kind of.  Because there is a catch.

How do I get one of those Teddies?

Step 1. Place an order with us valued at over USD $70.

Step 2. When going through the checkout, tell us what size you want in the notes section.  Get it right though because there are no exchanges on the freebies!

Measure your chest — Small – 30″ to 35″

Medium – 35″ to 40″

Large – 40″ to 45″

XL – 45″ to 50″ – Sorry, the XL’s have all gone!!!

Step 3. Wear your lovely Teddy with a smile and rejoice at my misfortune.

Awesome Teddy - and Free!

Awesome Teddy!

Happy Birthday to us – and SALE time!

It’s that time of year again.  We’ve now been running for seven years and it only feels like a couple!  What started as a bit of fun is continuing to develop into a business with lovely garments and great customers.

From our early garments such as the Lollipop and Whisper bras we established the style of underwear we intended to produce.  Lingerie for men that looks like lingerie and is designed to fit guys.  Top it off with the best customer service possible and the result is HommeMystere.

Whisper bra

Whisper bra

The Whisper bra was made locally and established the early trend we have of manufacturing each style once and not restocking again.  Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Lollipop Bra

Lollipop Bra

Lollipop was certainly a great seller at the time with hot pink being a very popular color for guys.

To reach seven years in a business selling lingerie to guys is something that most people would not have thought possible.  And it doesn’t come easily.  There’s a lot of hard work in building the business and relationships to ensure we can continue providing great lingerie to guys.

But at the end of the day, if we can continue manufacturing quality lingerie that our current and new customers want to purchase, then HommeMystere and lingerie for men in general has a very strong future.

To celebrate our birthday and to reduce the amount of stock we have to count at the end of the month, we’re offering a discount until June 30, 2016.

Just use the coupon code word stocktake16 when going through the checkout to receive 25% off everything across the store.  No minimum spend, no conditions.  Just a great opportunity to try HommeMystere lingerie.

Enjoy!
