There's very little in the world prettier or more “innocent” than the camisole, and there's certainly no material more sensual than silk. Silk camisoles can easily become part of a man's everyday wear as they are largely unobtrusive under a shirt of any sufficient weight and are certainly completely undetectable under a suit jacket. (Unless, perhaps, you happen to live in a repressive dictatorship which requires you to undergo intrusive x ray technology just to get on a plane.) Don't let that stop you from wearing lingerie though, if you do that, the terrorists have won.
Silk Lace Camisole
This silk lace camisole from Wintersilks combines the best of both worlds. Experience the soft pleasures of silk whilst also enjoying the feminine look of a lacy bust. The baby pink color adds to the whole affair with such an air of sweetness that diabetics might want to take caution when wearing it.
Juliana Rae Silk Lace Camisole
It's always nice to find pieces that have an element of originality about them, and this Juliana Rae silk lace camisole is certainly original. Its triangular dart design is certainly very angular, but not without cause, the visual effect created by two triangles of lace complimented by a solid silk is a slimming one.
100% Spun Silk Camisole
Also from Winterwilks, this is a very pretty, very plain silk camisole that you might just get away with wearing as a compliment to your usual male attire. It comes in black, 'blush' and cream, catering for most tastes and outfits. There is a delicate one inch charmeuse panel lining the top of the camisole, adding a little extra touch of luxury in a non ostentatious fashion.
Farr West Silk Charmeuse Camisole
A traditional camisole with two and a half inches of lace trimming the bodice, this camisole from the Lindsey Luxe collection of Farr West features accented designs over the bust. It's long line fit makes it good for men with longer torsos who often find that camisoles sit up around their belly button. It is also cut to conform to a womanly shape, giving a male wearer a more feminine appearance.
It is worth noting for the uninitiated that silk is better off cleaned by hand, or by dry cleaning if that is noted on the label. (Some silks are dry clean only.) Tossing silk lingerie in the washing machine, even inside a delicates bag is a very bad idea, and given the relative expense and fineness of the material, also a terrible waste.

Delighted to see many more men wearing bras/ Camisoles/ girdles etc this is realy great to see and hear. Men should take the bull by the horme and wera whatever they like every day just like the women did. It is our right to wear anything we like. and it is the women who object and make a scene over it.

Wouldn't it be lovely to wear a bra, panties, a slip and a dress ALL the time!

I've been wearing Farr West camis and half slips for years. They feel wonderful and hold-up very well when washed on delicate cycle. They are a staple for me.

Gee thanks Hope, like I really needed more places to shop for pretties. :)
BTW, it looks like the WinterSilks silk lace camisole isn't available anymore. But I did see several other interesting items.
Anna on November 21, 2009:
delicious! I have often worn a silk cami - and a lacy bra and french knickers under my "drab" working clothes. Long may it continue.

I love the farr west cami. I have also worn full mini slips with slacks. I say slacks ,as I have worn women's jeans and slack exclusively for sometime. When I have to project at somewhat manly appearance. I do love blouses too. I am getting to a point in my life,when I have pretty much decided to live for me and wear what I like. Actually,I do not think it is so much a society thing as personal. Women have long been braver than men. Wearing what they like. Men on the other hand ,not only mostly feel that women are inferior,but fear that being pretty somehow is lowly. Dammed if I can fiqure this out. We are ALL animals,although EGO sets us apart from others. And if one looks throughout the animal kingdom, males are always prettier or at least more showy. Overcome YOUR fears of not being accepted. Afterall,it is YOUR life.

The Silk Lace Camisole looks great, as well as the Farr West Silk Charmeuse Camisole.
If I could purchase them I definitely would!
