We are currently conducting a survey within our site gain some insight into our customers and visitors. Our final point provides space for anyone completing the survey to ask a question of make a comment. Below are a few received so far along with our responses…
I would love to see a lace thong with a polymide\micrfibre panel in crotch area. Lace in front irritates. Have only seen one pair for men.
HM – Have you checked out our Frill or Dorothy thong?
It is more comment than question: you have what appears to be a quality product that is lovely and interests me. My budget doesn’t allow me to purchase at this time. But that is in no way a complaint or begging for you to lower your prices. The prices are comparable to quality lingerie in name brand women’s lingerie stores. As long as you continue to make beautiful clothing with quality, then the price is justified. Thanks for stepping out into a bold market!
HM – No problem. Make sure you subscribe to our Newsletter to gain the best deals when we do have a sale!
No question, I just want to say I am so very very happy you are doing this! I’ve never liked male cloth design, and I have always wanted beauiful clothes that I can feel pretty and good looking in. For normal clothes simply shopping ladies clothes works good, but underwear, especially lingerie and more special stuff, has been harder. I had pretty much given up the though of finding any that were designed for guys when I found you. So thanks again for doing this! And please keep it up! I can finally feel I look good even under my clothes, and look sexy for my partner, and I hope that if more men discover how nice this can be, it will get more socially accepted too.
HM – Thanks for the kind words.
I find that I struggle to keep bra straps on my shoulders throughout the day. An adjustment guide would be helpful. Most general guides out there assume breasts.
HM – Getting the straps right will always be a challenge when there’s no weight acting against the elastic. On our later bras we have moved the connection point closer to the centre on the back of the bra to minimise slipping. It is also a good idea not to have the straps too tight so you can move around a little without loosening them. Aside from that, adjusting the strap can also be reminder that you are doing something a little socially unacceptable 🙂
It’s always a pleasure to get in touch. I think so far you’re doing great. I would like to see the trend of male lingerie become a normal thing… So maybe more promotion work and getting men to model them would be ideal in possibly spicing up a relationship. It has for mine so why not others experience it. I agree that product lines should always be updated, there is no room in our short lives to see the same old lingerie. Keep up with new releases. I’d like to see maybe 8 new lines posted every year.
HM – Thank you. I do have a few ideas to trial once we have a showroom open in Brisbane. Much will depend on our customers visiting the shop and if they are happy to participate. We are working on 6 to 8 new sets each year so you are right on track there!
Would love to see male female matching sets for couples.
HM – While that would be lovely, there just isn’t enough demand at this stage to warrant the cost of manufacturing a separate line for women. Once you take into account the range of sizes for women including different cup sizes, it becomes quite an exercise. The only way we could currently do a women’s line would be to drop a release for guys. And that isn’t likely to happen!
NO QUESTIONS, NO COMPLAINTS FROM ME, ANY CHANCE AT ALL OF OPENING AN OUTLET IN OR AROUND SARASOTA, FL.
HM – NOPE! WE’RE STILL WORKING ON GETTING SOMETHING OPEN IN AUSTRALIA!
Appreciate the website that does not descend into the smutty areas such as many do.
Ever consider a strapless bra. How about a teddy to match the Sheer bra & panty. Satin teddy would be nice, too. Would you consider a discount for customers’ birthdays.
Color options for each design. Tap pants. Offer sets ( panty/bra. cami/tap, etc.).
Store in the upper mid-west.
HM – We’re trying to keep it clean…:) We do have a few different teddies coming out over the next 10 months or so including a sheer style in the next month or two. We can’t do multiple colors per style at the moment as that would pretty much soak up our budget in a very short period of time. For example, one style in 5 colors is the same as doing 5 different styles. It’s better to have variety at this early stage. We currently do some good discounts for subscribers so it’s unlikely we will do birthday discounts too! Sorry, no store for the upper mid-west, at least until we get a store happening in Australia!
When i first came upon your site I sent a query more out of curiosity than anything. I was so impressed by the nature of the reply (as if it was for an everyday item ) and the good mannered nature that I placed an order.
HM – Thanks for the feedback. And if anyone else is interested, we DID NOT write that ourselves..
Great products very efficient service and a most suprising but welcome result from my better (so she says) half.
HM – Always good to hear about a happy partner!
Keep up the good work you are doing at present, Bronwyn in Wales !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HM – Thanks Bronwyn!!!!!!!!!!!!
No question, but would like to see more satin- bikinis panties, teddies, corsets, maid outfits
HM – Yeah, me too.
No questions just keep up the good work !!!!
HM – Okey Dokey!
Could the panty gusset be made a little larger to come about an inch further to the front.
HM – Ok, I hear what you’re saying. Just because YOU were given a little extra at birth, doesn’t mean the rest of us normal guys should have to have a little extra wasted space at the front! (But I will check that out..)
I would love to see several different styles of panties in the same lingerie line i.e. a thong, bikini and full pantie in the Rose.
HM – Ahh, the Rose. One of the early ones and nearly gone. We won’t be doing that for the Rose but as we grow, we will be doing exactly as you’re suggesting. Patience…
It would be nice to see you design more sexier lingerie that shows more skin ,like skimpier thongs, gstrings and sheer fabrics incorporated with garters and nylon stockings.
HM – hmmm…I’m not sure that’s the way to go. I prefer the classier look, older styles and more ‘normal’ looking lingerie. I think the sexy skimpy stuff looks a bit cheapish..
Just a thought, would HM consider investment from it’s customers to help grow.
HM – I guess you could say we’re already doing that now. We rely on the continued support of customers to grow the range of lingerie and therefore the business. We have considered the possibility of crowd funding to speed up growth but I don’t think there would be enough in this market to make it worthwhile. The growth also has to be manageable enough so we can install systems to ensure the longevity of the business and the brand. We would prefer to sacrifice short term gains for long term stability. Part of the fun is building the business and planning for the future. Nice thought though!
I would appreciate to receive newsletters in French and you dare a little more in terms of vintage lingerie , because I ‘d love to see former lingerie , back 1930/40/50/60 year to date , reviewed and corrected by HommeMystere ..
HM – Sorry, but we have subscribers and visitors from around the world so it’s not feasible for us to send Newsletters out in other languages at this stage. And you may have noticed my English and grammar isn’t particularly good so imagine the damage I could do to other languages! If someone shows up with some awesome software that can do a great interpretation for then we will look at it.
Would love you making teddies, slips. chemises, sexy short nighties, french knickers for guys.
HM – We’re always looking at different styles. Keep watching the site or our Pinterest Page.
Have you considered B size cups in the bras for larger guys.
HM – Several of our bras will expand up to a C cup! Particularly the soft cup bras.
I am not into thongs. Could you make lingerie (teddy) that has a full bum.
HM – One coming soon!
Can you make it available in India.
HM – We do have customers in India, however the postage system is v-e-r-y s-l-o-w. The best option is to get a quote from us for express freight. Generally around the $40 – $50 mark.
PVC, Colorful plastic waterproof panties, bibs, pacifiers etc.
HM – Nope, ain’t gonna happen.
A comment. A lot of your bras are looking like training bras that have been spruced up. Sure I know those are easy to make and fit us guys but I much prefer something like the Rose bra. That looks and feels much more like a real woman’s bra only for a flat chested woman. Bras in general are completely non functional for men so if we are wearing them it is for the crossdressing aspect. So I prefer it to look and feel like a bra.
HM – You’ll love Anneve when she arrives in a few days.
Does a mans junk fit nicely in the panties.
HM – Yep.
Can we get an Australian outlet as your goods and service is fantastic
HM – In Brisbane sometime soon…
Where can I meet other men and couples who like men’s lingerie.
HM – No idea.
Have you ever considered Victoria Secret type styles designed for the male anatomy. I know you probably would not be able to copy the panties and bras exactly, but every time I walk by the Victoria Secret store at the mall I lust for those pretty panties and bras.
HM – We look at heaps of designs though no specific brands. I think your reaction is just a normal one that all guys get when they look at lingerie in a Victoria Secret store.
I usually get size small with other brand. The hommemystere size S is a little too big for me. Are you planning to have size XS in the future.
HM – No. Most of our Small’s will fit down to a 26 inch hip and there is not enough demand for anything smaller in briefs than we currently design.
I love bikini style panties and matching bras. I would love to see far more very fem pastel shades of colour, plain, silky, lace, floral and sheer. I am a hetro cross dresser, and owned submissive belonging to Dominatrix Mistress Amanda.
HM – We have a couple of pastel colors planned. Mistress Amanda will be pleased!
Ever considered selling or making an open back panties. I have seen some ladies open back panties that are incredibly sexy and wouldn’t mind a pair of my own
HM – Not at the moment.
I think your newest upcoming bra and panty set finally puts you back on track for what men like me enjoy wearing. I currently have over 10 of your sets. Your most recent creation did not meet my standards for what I expect of your company, But this new arrival finally puts you back on track. And this new set I will definitely add to my collection. You finally got it right!
HM – Thank you! I’m sure you will lurrrve Anneve!
Will there be more boyshorts and vests. wearing both now and they are some of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn!
HM – You and me both! I think they’re great but they don’t sell so there won’t be anymore in the foreseeable future…:(
I would like to ask, but before I do, I would like to say I hope you do go into the swimwear garment part of your brand, Now the Question, I would like to know is there a way that I can send you some ideas and suggestions.
HM – We would love to do some swimwear but need to expand the lingerie range by quite a ways first. If you have some ideas, a picture tells heaps of words so the best idea is set up a Pinterest page, post some pics, then send us a link!
Any chance you can make a more vanilla panty like a fruit of the loom panty you would find on Amazon with a solid color. No frills or bows. I like your panties because they fit men but it would be awesome if you sold a cheaper non-lingerie panty for men that could come in a 5 pack. You would be the first if you did.
HM – I hear you. I think the problem will be that the cost will still be high due to our low volumes. Something to keep in mind though and I certainly like the idea.
Also it would be awesome if you designed dresses for men. To my knowledge nobody does. I think it would be really awesome.
HM – You said ‘awesome’ twice which tells me you really really want us to do dresses. To be honest I can’t see that happening as there are heaps of dresses out there that would fit a guy anyway so not much point us trying. In saying that, I wouldn’t mind expanding the range a little into sleepwear and doing a few nighties, nightshirts, cami/undie sets etc. Who knows! But for the short term, we’ll be concentrating on lingerie.
Finally sleepwear like sleep shirts or sleep gowns would be great except again designed with a man’s body in mind.
HM – Yep, see above.
Why don’t you offer more than one color in each style. Aerie does very well selling only like 5 different kinds of panties but in multiple colors and fabrics.
HM – You mean Aerie lingerie, a subsidiary of American Eagle, that has revenue of over $3 billion per year? Umm, well, we can’t quite compete with that just yet. But look out in 2016!
Do you have 2xl.
HM – Only in the PinStripe range
Is there any distributor in eastern Canada.
HM – No, we ship from Australia to Canada.
Are you stuck on lace and basic prints or have you thought of prints like paint splash or color blocking.
HM – No, we just prefer basic prints
Not so much a question as I would love to see more thongs and g-strings. I realize it might be hard as a smaller company to do, but I like a lot of the current designs, I just wish I could choose my own colors for it. I would also be interested in thong back teddys. And I would be interested if corsets were also available
HM – We just released the thong back Rachel teddy and we have a new G String due out in the next month or so. Colors are an issue for us as we are still a little too small. It’s something we’re aware of though.
Do you support transgender women?
HM – I’m not too sure what you mean by support but I guess if you mean ‘do we support the rights of anyone to choose how they live their life’ then the answer would be yes.
How do you get ideas for new designs?
HM – Usually be working out how the garment should feel to wear and what thoughts it might provoke then working backwards to create the pattern. Or sometimes I just see something and think whoa! That looks pretty cool, I’m going to make something similar.
Am losing weight. Will be more more interested when I have lost another 20 pounds. Marvellous stuff!!
HM – I’m going to market us as a pseudo weight loss company…
Can you send out a US mail catalog?
No. Don’t have one.
Who purchases the products? Men or women?
HM – Both, but mainly men. Because we make it for men.
Make super cute lil socks for my great big adorable boyfriend!
HM – Nope, won’t be doing that anytime soon. Unless we make a ‘sock’ that he can ‘wear’….
How popular are your sales in the USA?
HM – Pretty popular. I guess about even with Europe. Those Belgians….gotta love them..
