I love having "the package" covered, but to have a nice view of the butt cheeks, and easy access to my property. (I want to know that that your (my!) penis is there and to see your reactions, but not have everything "in my face"!)
(NOTE: Every crossdresser should own a pair of basic black cotton women's bikinis or thongs, but save them for doctor visits!)
Ultimately, the cut that looks best on the boy/gurl and best fits my mood is the one that I want to see.
You also have to be careful with sheer, fuller-cut backs. While I have had boys wear sheer-backed panties for me, and have even purchased them for jezi, it is usually the front view and coverage that I really love most about them (at right). With sheer backs, I prefer them to be dark/black mesh or lace, making them more subtly sheer and much more sexy, mysterious and attractive.
Posting pics poking your worse-than-bare butt out there, presumably for a spanking, is just as bad as any cock-shot, and just as much all about you. It is not about your Domme, what she wants or offering yourself to her.
I'm sure that you have already noticed that black is my favorite color on my boys and gurls. I especially *love* the contrast of black lace against pale skin, and find that black as the perfect color when you want to be sexy and not trashy.
My own personal favorite color is purple, so it is also a favorite color for my boys and gurls, but I do consider it to be more personal to me, and it's a special color for those in my service or training. Likewise, well-designed rose prints and patterns are especially close to my heart.
Other colors that have special meaning include:
- Sissy Pink - Best when really femmed-up in a very girlie way.
- Bridal White - NEVER wear plain, boring cotton! Virginal white panties should always be delicately beautiful, preferably satin and/or lace with exquisite trims like something you would wear on your wedding night.
- Slutty Red - Unless it is for a holiday like Valentine's or Christmas, I usually consider red as in-your-face slutty!
I'm generally looking for a front view of your panties, with a nice bulge but not showing "everything". A hint of something through semi-sheer fabric, mesh or lace can create a nice intrigue, but try not to be too in-your-face about it.
A view of the back is a nice addition if there is any back-detailing. Like the pic of the rumba panties above, the best angle is often half way between being directly to the back and directly to the side so that it shows the curve of the cheek, but not an in-depth view of the crack! With tangas, v-backs, etc., you generally have to be more straight-on to really show off the back detailing, but then the crack is usually covered. :-)
