How do you wear your lycra? Let's be honest!

Postby Lycra Clad » Mon Aug 02, 2010 8:50 pm

I was wondering. How do you guys wear your lycra?

I know people like DT only wear the masculine type used for sports, e.g. triathlon suits.

But what about the rest of you? Are you only interested in wearing male-type lycra clothing for various recreational activities? Or do you also have a hidden secret of dressing up in female attire?

Me personally, I only wear spandex when it actually helps, e.g. in sports. Having said that, I actually like it. Similar to DT, it feels great playing sports in spandex and it also encourages you to take care of your shape, look good in front of the women, etc.

I too am like yourself and DT. I only like to wear lycra made specifically for men and for a purpose.

Ages ago I tried women lycra behind close doors, tried the leotard, biketard and other lycra items made for women, and while it felt great, I didn't feel like I was doing myself any favors. Sure I got off on it for a while, but felt like it wasn't a part of me and it looked a hell of a lot better on women, so I stopped for quite some time.

Fast forward about 10 years, I bought some male designed lycra for the gym and I haven't looked back. For once I feel like I can go out and wear spandex and wear it for a designated purpose. I haven't looked back. Though I'm still getting over initial jitters of wearing it without the sweats over it, I will soon take the plunge and don it too and from the gym.

I don't think we will ever be able to wear it as freely as women do in general/social activities. But as DT said in another thread, if you are going to/from a gym or spin class then it is acceptable attire for men. I do not recommend you turn up in a floral thing leotard, but a bib knick or cycling leggings yes!
There is no such thing as 'too tight'.

If anyone has ANY footage of 'aerobics oz style' from the early 90's, let me know..

Oh yeah, I can totally relate....same experience! That was me too, Lord knows how many orgasms I had while a leotard cut sharply into the side of my nutsack...or the utter frustration of wanting to remain in the unitard but not being able to access the fun zone. And then there's always that cherished moment you look in the mirror and realize you do NOT look good. Oh, and who can forget the post-orgasm regret: it's like the hormonal chemicals fizzle in less then 10 seconds and then you're left wondering wtf your problem is and swearing you're done.....but a day or even hours later you get that mental hunger again...and back into the spandex you go.

You know, this stuff is hard to admit and it's rather odd to put it out over the Internet...but it's like screaming into the forest, the thread will fall and in days it'll be lost to utter obscurity. So here it goes; beyond lycra, I wondered what it felt like to wear high heels, I had a small collection of 5-6" stiletto's..all black patent, very sexy stuff....it's a nice way to finish-off a leg and it's rather sexy. Beyond that, I never wanted to CD, wear a bra/wig or anything weird like that. And bear in mind, I was always 100% straight and even homophoebic....but it as Blue says, it made me think I wasn't doing myself any favors; it felt wrong and even sinful. At times it almost felt like a disease or disorder. Anyone relate?

It was about 2.5 years ago I was trying to lose weight (yet again) and I got into mountain biking...as the weather warmed, I dared to depart from the grunge-style baggy shorts and try proper cycling shorts: OMG, what a difference!!! Instead of bulky, heavy & baggy....it was sleek, cool and felt AMAZING...and we all know the story of how I showed my wife & trainer and had that positive feedback. Then I saw a triathlon suit and made the unitard/leotard connection: bodysuits made and intended for men? HELLO!!!

So I'll be open about it, SPANDEX CHANGED MY LIFE...I was fat, had bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, felt lousy, looked like a swollen tank and was on my way to taking serious medications. While being healthy was an motivation, I can honestly say that I tapped & harnessed my spandex interest and became obsessed with wanting to look good in a triathlon suit...you know, pretty much something that shows EVERYTHING and is utterly unforgiving to even an ounce of fat.

In no time I owned several pairs of cycling shorts, bibs, wrestling singlets (modified with crotch padding like tri-suits) and of course my favorite: triathlon suits. Always looking for nicer suits that looked better on me, it was fun. At first I'd wear shirts over the suit so it appeared I was just wearing shorts...but on one hot day where there were very few people on the trail, I lost the shirt and it was F-in blissful: the feeling of wearing just one solid piece is sublime...no shorts rolling down, no jersey or shirt riding up, just one flawless body-wrap while you listen to music and feel the endorphins; just incredible. I'm out on fire-roads running through the Santa Monica Mountains, great views, fresh air...just 'at one' with the environment.

But here is the other thing that I'm leading to...I completely, entirely and totally lost all interest in leotards, high heels or anything feminine. It's gone, history, just entirely dismissed. I can't entirely explain it but 100% of my fascination & interest is completely satisfied immensely through wearing men's spandex. Have I worn a leotard since? Yeah, I came across a really nice high-cut metallic green while cleaning the closet and tried it on for kicks: nothing! Maybe it's because I wear so much spandex that it's lost it's luster...but I don't think that's what it is...I still LOVE wearing my spandex, but wearing women's stuff just feels wrong.

So yeah, I'm here to preach two things: wearing spandex is awesome and let it fuel you to be healthier and more fit....and secondly, you can entirely replace a closet feminine fetish with something entirely acceptible: men's spandex. Not only is it acceptible to wear, you can occassionally see women checking it out and smiling. Women won't look at you like that if you wear a nice suit or some board shorts or much anything. Women have all their sexy clothing but what do us men have? Pretty much nothing.....but we do have spandex and it's absolutey awesome!

Bingo! Once you discover and embrace male-intended spandex, you'll never look back. And once your fit and feeling great, you'll LOVE the way you feel about your body and enjoy showing it off a bit. I'm excited for you Blue!!

Hey guys, sorry I type so much....but for so long I've never understood the thoughts going on in my mind and in a cathartic manner this has really been incredibly illuminating and helpful to me.

I am the same -- I pretty much only wear spandex for sports & exercise. And I mainly wear male spandex, but recently I've opened myself up to wear women's spandex as long as it has a unisex style & color scheme. My justification for this is, 1.) There isn't a real difference between men's spandex & women's spandex made by the same company with the same color scheme, 2.) I know of women who've worn men's spandex, 3.) Companies usually offer less variety & style for women and I feel it's unjust that I should feel restricted.

For example, I wear men's 3/4 capri tights. I have about 6 pair from different companies. I wanted some from Under Armour, but they only sell 3/4 tights in Europe & Japan. So, on the US site, I decided to order some 3/4 capri tights for women.

If I'm awake and can see it (and obviously if anyone else can see it), male lycra. Particularly as in the last couple of years a lot of extra male lycra (albeit a lot intended as underwear, but also rash vests and tri suits) has become available.

However the way I got into my obsession with lycra is that when I was a kid I loved the feeling of the leotard and tights I had for ballet classes, and wanted to wear them to get that feeling when not at ballet (and after I'd got to that age where boys give up ballet). The only time I could do this was at night, so I got into the habit of sometimes wearing them instead of having a duvet cover.

Fast forward 20 years I get more legitimate opportunities to wear it for other sporting activities during the day, but still often wear it at night too. For night-time purposes I want shorts or tights without padding (too hot and detracts from the feeling of the lycra, and good coverage of nice tight lycra. To me a long sleeved leotard feels better than a long sleeved top and trunks / whatever, and isn't too hot in summer. A long sleeved catsuit gives nice all over tight coverage without doubling up over the middle, compared to a leotard and shorts.

But no matter how good it feels I feel there's something inherently wrong about being in women's lycra, so I never think about what the item of clothing that gives me that feeling is, or look at myself when wearing it. Which makes it a shame that it somehow became the case (probably though chance) that for dancewear women can cover the arms but for men apparently can't; the only practical difference between a lot of leotards and unitards!

For me it's different. The only male spandex I wear are UnderArmour Tshirts and some swimming briefs, the speedo type.

But mostly, I prefer to wear women's one piece swimsuits, highcut model. Usually, only when I'm at home
or under my normal clothes during leissure time.

I'm in good shape and I got the figure to wear those feminine swimsuits, so I can't relate to the feeling of disgust
or some odd guilt some others feel whose physique isn't fit for feminine spandex wear. Still, I don't even feel like a true crossdresser either.
I don't feel the need at all, to show it to the outside world.

The attraction to spandex for me is still very much the tactile sense. Therefor, it's still a sensual erotic thing for me,
BUT...I don't have to get to orgasm in it all the time either. During weekends, I can wear women's swimsuits under my
normal clothing all day long without cumming, butwith an erotic tension, thanks to the slippery spandex swimsuit....it's almost a bit tantra.

I don't feel there's anything wrong with wearing women's spandex and I'm happy my wife likes it on me too. So, no..I don't
have that much with male spandex.

Yeah, that's all good & well....but I'd still be willing to bet that if you started wearing triathlon suits and some of the upper-body covering swim suits, you'd probably find yourself with a wardrobe full of women's swim suits that don't get worn anymore.

I've yet to see a guy who can wear a high-cut one-piece women's bathing suit and actually look good in it. Then again, I guess that's subjective.

The wife 'likes' you wearing them...or is she just tolerant?

Well, from some online vid postings, I had
positive reactions from crossdressers and people who like to see crossdressers, and they can be quite picky so a compliment from them means something. But yeah, I am aware wearing a swimsuit in public would look odd to say the least, despite having the good physique. Still, it's always social context which dictates what is odd and what's not. It's up to ourselves to which extent we let ourselves be bound to that.

DynamicTorque wrote:The wife 'likes' you wearing them...or is she just tolerant?
Well, let's just say that it spices up our love life a whole lot more when we're doing it while both wearing swimsuits. That's a big plus imo. Or when I wear a swimsuit as underwear and she didn't know that day but suddenly notices I'm wearing it ( for example, while hugging me ) and her subsequent spontaneous reaction telling me I'm quite the naughty boy. That's just priceless.

I doubt it. For sports excercise like running or basketball, baggy shorts + underarmour tshirt still suffice and for swimming the speedo's or shorts. So, I'd probably continue wearing womens swimsuits as underwear, PJ's / fetishwear within the confines of privacy.

There's also the price & style factor : 'simple' solid colour womens one piece swimsuits are usually quite a bit cheaper than high tech triathlon suits or fully covering competition swimsuits. Also, I just find the highcut style to be sexy...something I wouldn't be able to say about full triathlon suits.

but yeah, to each his/her own :) The OP asked for honest answers, so I can only state how I really like to wear my feminine spandex.

Very well explained on all counts....

You're certainly right about the cost of tri-suits, the cheapest you'll find are about $90 and they run as high as $340....the average being about $140

And you're also right about the high/mid/low-cut...there is no cut with the biketard/tri-suit/singlet....but you never need to pull it out or away from the great divide :)

That's exactly the reason why I don't wear spandex all the time, only for those 'special' occasions.

At some point you'll have to make a conscious decision to keep the original fascination or change it into normality. That's why I'm glad actually, spandex isn't 100% mainstream.

I'm a cyclist so lycra is like part of the uniform. There's no stigma attached to riding in lycra. A couple of years ago the baggy trend towards wearing baggy shorts with the chamois liner hidden, but as far as I know that trend is dying a rapid death especially since cycling is now a mainstream sport and the general public is aware of why cyclists wear lycra.

My wife is a personal trainer and teaches a number of RPM classes a week and the padded knicks are mandatory since the RPM bikes have a propert saddle not the ugly super wide padded seats that are more common on cheap exercise bikes.

Absolutely! Anyone but a beginner is generally in proper cycling shorts nowadays. There is a simple rule: once you try it, there is no going back! It's true...I've never known someone to try the spandex and then return to the baggy-bulky shorts. Most people have their initial shyness in letting their lower torso be exposed save only a fractional thickness of spandex...but you get past that pretty quick (or should).

I still recall what a shocking difference I felt the first time I lost the baggy-bulky grunge-style (hidden padded liner) shorts and ran with the cycling shorts. Never mind the first time I held them up and thought a tiny girl would fit into these...the feeling is almost like being naked, but you're still feeling secure and solid due to compression. But the feeling/sensation aside, the cycling shorts were remarkably comfortable and my legs were just free to crank & churn away at the pedals...it just feels and performs so much better that you just can't compare; this is why cyclist wear them!

Here again, very true!

A proper saddle means your legs can do their thing without the chaffing, binding and contact with the seat...but it also means the pressure & weight of your body is more so concentrated on the 'sit bones' and as such a good padding is critical. What they found is that it's better to take your padded butt to a hard seat, rather then a padded seat to your unprotected butt: you ride the bike, not the bike riding you.

What few people realize is that even a modest cadence is about 60-80rpm and some people even churn at 110rpm or more. What this means is that a solid hour of cycling can involve as much as 3,600 to 6,600 rpm's!!!! My cycling adventures (in class or on the real bike) often add-up to 2.25-3 hours...I'm cranking over 10,000 rpm's total: do you REALLY want to try that in anything other then a proper cycling short?

Well, this is a good read, finding this site years ago made me feel glad that i wasn't the only person experiencing indulgence in tight, male and female clothes. I love to wear female swimsuits, cycling shorts have always been there but a catsuit is always on top!
I wear underarmour pants and vets every single day, this has diminished the 'rush' somewhat but, similarly to yourselves I have found that if i am out on my bike or swimming outdoors, i am working on being fitter, happier, more productive mentally and physically, what i'm wearing is appropriate for that.
I have noticed that female cycling unitards or tri-suits fit me better because i am quite overweight and have extra fat deposits where there shouldn't be (".....his name was Robert Paulson").

Luckily tho i have experienced years of tolerance from my partner whom has worn outfits i have purchased cheaply from sales and put together, somehow i knew i could be honest with her and it's been ok. She does, however, find cross-dressing a bit 'freaky'... (because it is! .....it's something i'm quite happy closetting TYVM!)

Nowadays i have enough male stuff designed for sports but still prefer a uni-sec/female base layer - i have cutomised many pairs of shorts and they all suit the purpose of keeping all of me in the right place for excersize..

since i was 7 or 8 years old i had the desire to wear women's leotards and now that i am an adult i can do it as i please. i find male lycra to be boring and not really a turn on, but i will wear plain lycra shorts to the gym. i prefer mostly loose clothing at the gym as i dont like sweating in spandex and i'm a real sweat hog when i work out. but when it comes to dressing for fun clearly women's lycra is more fun for me. i got my hands on an alpha factor long sleeve gymnastic leotard and its really magical. no, i don't think that men look good in women's spandex, but i like the way i look and that's all that matters.

You know, I really love reading Lycra-Clad....besides being spot-on with most his insights, he's truly talented & gifted in patting a guy on the back while also kicking him in the nuts. F-in love it!!!!

"Oh yeah, I can totally relate....same experience! That was me too, Lord knows how many orgasms I had while a leotard cut sharply into the side of my nutsack...or the utter frustration of wanting to remain in the unitard but not being able to access the fun zone. And then there's always that cherished moment you look in the mirror and realize you do NOT look good. Oh, and who can forget the post-orgasm regret: it's like the hormonal chemicals fizzle in less then 10 seconds and then you're left wondering wtf your problem is and swearing you're done.....but a day or even hours later you get that mental hunger again...and back into the spandex you go. "

TOTALLY the same thing with me. However, here's where we parted...I just kept doing it, and after a while, I didn't feel (and still don't feel) like it was wrong, or sinful, or anything. I just...do it. And I think it's hot.

My girlfriends over the years have loved this about me. And as for not being caught dead in them...yeah, I wouldn't want a stranger to just happen upon me dressed like an 80s aerobics instructor in high heels. But, that's why I do it at home. In the end, they are just clothes. I just like the way they make me look and feel.

99% of my lycra attire is sporty - speedo swimsuits, Adidas / Nike running tights etc. I tend to buy womens running tights because I know the sizes better and they tend to be a bit shinier overall. you wouldn't really know if they were male or female running tights. i guess I get a bit of a kick out of getting to wear garments that are taboo for men. really think the range of clothing women get to wear compared with men is one of life's injustices, if it was the other way round women would be out campaigning and demanding equal rights!! ;o)

One day I forgot my gymclothes, and my school has a "found clothes' box. I put on a very very shiny lightgreen bikeshort. It felt great, elastic.... I asked my mom to buy a short like that, but she told me its for girls.... to bad :( but I remember that pe lesson as yesterday.

Only wear men's athletic spandex but some are unisex such as my dance leggings i wear time to time at the gym. Some guys can get away wearing short spandex volleyball women shorts i've seen in the gym but i strictly stick to fabric to compress my muscles for complete benefit not for looks. My mens running shorts and tights and compression tops do the job nicely.
I could get away wearing woman's short tri-tops with great compression for my upper body but find it might be to much for anyone to understand for such tight compression. So rely on adidas tec tops hard enough to do sit-ups when totally compressed on my abs. Thus would prefer low cut tops but find people wouldn't understand and would laugh saying i'm wearing womans sports bra top. :oops: :o :cry:

I know people like DT only wear the masculine type used for sports, e.g. triathlon suits.

But what about the rest of you? Are you only interested in wearing male-type lycra clothing for various recreational activities? Or do you also have a hidden secret of dressing up in female attire?

Me personally, I only wear spandex when it actually helps, e.g. in sports. Having said that, I actually like it. Similar to DT, it feels great playing sports in spandex and it also encourages you to take care of your shape, look good in front of the women, etc.



I only wear sports-related spandex too. However, I do buy women's spandex too, only if they appear unisex. Meaning, I won't buy women's spandex that has a feminine color scheme or design to it. But if the styles/colors are unisex, but are listed as women's, I'll buy it. I bought some women's running tights that are black with a blue/orange stripe on the side. I have some women's tights that are black with white stripes on the side. Most of my spandex however is men's. I'd say about 85-90% is men's spandex.

Yes and I only wear it for working out and athletic activities.
