We have had a pre release of our Britney set online for a few weeks now while we wait for the bulk of the stock to be manufactured and shipped over to us.
Fortunately things are running ahead of schedule and all garments have now arrived.
To mark the arrival of this set, we are currently running a sale of 40% off Britney until September 23rd. To take advantage, just use the coupon code word Britney when going through the checkout. No minimum order.
The Britney panty is made from microfibre in a similar pattern to our Frill design although a little lower across the bum. Still a perfectly comfortable item for all day wear.
The Britney thong with the lace back will be popular for those of you wanting plenty of package room combined with a stretch lace that separates the buns! This is a really lovely piece of lingerie.
Our Britney bra is a new design with a high neck style following the theme from the popular Lara bodysuit. Super comfortable and will give you that feminine feel you’re chasing!

And here’s a preview of our Nadia dress due out in October….
Time is getting away from us and August has crept up quite fast! This week we have released two new bodysuits, the Lara and Carmen.
These are both beautiful garments designed to make you feel sexy as hell and incredibly comfortable. The Lara Bodysuit has a snap crotch with five robust buttons for easy access and collar that looks great and feels awesome! This is figure hugging lingerie that will love you regardless of your shape or size. It is also a great unisex item that your partner will enjoy too!
Carmen is the perfect sleepwear garment. It is the best sleepwear you will ever have. No exaggeration. The soft lace shoulders will not move, the front lace is soft and the microfiber bottom is soft, supportive and comfortable. The front section is cut to support your package while allowing enough room for comfortable expansion and an uninterrupted sleep.
And of course there is another new Lara too. After eight years of my constant lingerie addiction, Lara (wife of more than 2 decades!) is going to take on the day to day running so I can concentrate on some other projects. Maybe our lingerie needs a women’s touch? Either way, please make Lara welcome!
To mark the arrival of Lara, Lara and Carmen, we are currently doing 30% off across the store. Just use the coupon code word bodysuit to take advantage of the offer. Minimum spend is $30. Ends August 20.
We’ve just returned from a personal trip to Las Vegas to celebrate a birthday milestone. Eight nights in Vegas is clearly too much in one go and I’m surprised booking agencies don’t have pop up warnings against staying more than a few days!
But it’s a great place to go out with friends and we may even do something similar in another 10 years or so if the body is up for the challenge.
Aside from the usual tourist things like the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and shooting weapons which are foreign to us in Australia (my thumb will recover from the 44 magnum I’m told!), there was one thing I did notice around the strip and Freemont Street.
People wear anything they want in Vegas. Seriously, on several occasions I thought mangerie is pretty tame compared to what was going on around some of those casinos. But I also realised that just because you can wear something, it doesn’t mean you should!
All in all it was great trip and the hospitality from everyone we met was incredibly friendly. A special thank you to the staff at Ellis Island Casino as we pretty much adopted the place as our Australian base due to the great service, affordable drinks, fun gambling and the chicken fried steak.
Apologies to anyone that may have received hearing damage from our group singing Aussie songs at all hours of the night and requesting Cold Chisel, AC/DC and Men At Work from anyone with a musical instrument.
The show highlight had to be Absinthe at Caesars which is the most politically incorrect funniest jaw aching show I have ever seen. But take this tip and do not, under any circumstances book seats close to the stage unless you want to be part of the performance or have a desire to be insulted continuously throughout the show! Very very crude and funny.
While in Vegas it became clear very early that I was not going to make a fortune gambling and so we spent most of time touring the area and visiting the various bars.
We also decided to have our birthday/stocktake sale in preparation for more stock that is due to begin arriving mid June.
For just a few more days we are offering 40% off across the store if you use the coupon code vegasbirthday when going through the checkout. Sale ends next week!
UPDATE: Now available. Use coupon code word ‘Krystal‘ when going through the checkout to receive 40% off Krystal and any of the Natasha, Katie, Tracy and Miranda. Ends Monday April 17th.
Krystal is our next release and we expect her to be available sometime in the first week of April. The Krystal set is a sheer design with an embroidered panel on the panty and embroidered sheer fabric on the bra cups and wings.
Krystal Teddy has an open back, sheer front, full bum and overlaid bra cups.

Our Newsletter subscribers will be aware that we finally made an attempt at setting up a Facebook page for the business this week.
And today we deleted the Page.
We did a ‘soft’ release of the Page on Monday morning Aussie time and received quite a good reaction. Plenty of ‘likes’ and Followers received and many of you also sent us emails to let us know that you liked the page but couldn’t ‘Like’ the page because of the possibility of exposure.
We had anticipated that. The plan was to see if we could gain some more awareness and therefore some more customers so we can continue to grow the business.
However on Friday we were unable to access the page due to posting ‘inappropriate’ content that contradicted the terms and conditions of FB. We have no idea what was unacceptable as we had been careful not to post anything sheer or nude with the exception of the back of thongs (which we thought would be ok!). We had also set the page to only be viewed by those over the age of 18 years.
We believe the post that led to the notice was probably our very first video. It was constructed by us from photos of lingerie on a mannequin in the first year we established the brand.
It was also marked by YouTube visitors as having ‘inappropriate’ content at the time and can still only be viewed by those of you over the age of eighteen years.
Strangely enough, our videos with ‘live’ models are acceptable!
So rather than fight yet another censorship battle and have to micromanage a part of our business we have decided to delete the Page entirely and forego FaceBook. We appreciate we are placing information on their site and are therefore subject to FaceBook terms and conditions. We respect the fact they have the right to review and restrict our content however they wish despite not agreeing with their decision.
So we will look at alternative forums to interact with our customers and subscribers in the future.
Thanks to those of you that supported us over the 6 day period!
One of the main goals of HommeMystere has been to continually expand the range of lingerie we design for our clients. That means we complete a single manufacturing run of a style and then never go back and make exactly the same style again.
There have been a couple of variations on this idea such as the Miranda being a very similar pattern to Genevieve, and Rachel also being close to the same style.
I also do plan to do another style of the Frill set although it will likely be the thong, panty and a padded bra in a different color.
But this week I received an email from Shane in the USA who said he always liked the China Doll set but found the site too late to get one. Shane also said there was some mention of the China Doll on other sites and forums where guys were interested in getting a set. This isn’t the first time I’ve received a request for the China Doll. Every now and again someone sends an email and I have apologise for not having one in their size.
So here’s a bit of background on the China Doll. It was the first ‘large’ production run we did of a particular style and our first time using a manufacturer in China. The name came from the fact is was made in China but more so after the David Bowie song of which I’m a fan. It was one of the turning points for HommeMystere going from small local runs to importing and learning about large factory manufacturing.
It certainly didn’t go too smoothly but starting a lingerie business for guys was never going to be a straightforward business plan! The China Doll did run very very small, the panty is low at the front but overall, the look is quite nice and it is/was quite comfortable. The China Doll bra has large cups which turned out to be a positive for our female model at the time – she was so impressed with the bra and the wing design she took a couple for herself!
So I’m in two minds at the moment. Do we do another run on China Doll? Do we sacrifice a new style and color for another China Doll set? To do it again would mean making the bras larger in the band and I would also change the panty pattern slightly to make it higher at the front. And do you guys really want a full bra that has a cup size that large?
There is still time. I’m still in the planning stages for the second half of this year and will be back at the factory in China to work on the patterns and plans in March. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Please note it does take 12 to 24 hours for comments to appear..
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.
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.
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.
We have plenty of special offers in place. To be the first to know please visit the homepage, scroll down and subscribe to our newsletter. If you’re after a Valentines gift, enter the code valentine2017 when going through the checkout and receive 25% off your order. No minimum, sale ends February 14th and includes sale items!
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
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.
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.
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!

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.
