All of us ladies know that one of the most satisfying feelings is to walk around in a guys clothing, especially if it is a few sizes too big. There is something just so comforting about it. Plus, it’s a little exhilarating, wearing something you don’t own. Whether it’s borrowing a hoodie when you’re cold, or if you’re anything like me, when you spill coffee or spaghetti sauce all over your shirt, you grab something out of your boyfriend’s closet and feel content because it smells like him. It’s a comforting action.
All women I know love being able to do this, and I think it all started with the simple action of a varsity sports player giving his girlfriend his Letterman jacket to symbolize they were going steady. Oh my, how it has changed. The real question after all these years is what do guys think about girls stealing and wearing their clothing. So I asked my closest guy friends to answer a series of questions anonymously to see what their take on all of this was.
What do you think when a girl steals your clothing?
“Definitely depends on the girl. If it’s a stranger, I guess I got robbed and should curl up in a fetal position.”
“It’s honestly just really cute.”
“I think that when a girl steals your clothing it is a sign of endearment. They want a token to remember you by. But when they keep stealing them it could get annoying.”
“Cute, but she better have a plan to give it back.”
“It’s kind of a turn on seeing a girl steal my clothes because it shows me that she is comfortable around me.”
“For me, it’s no problem. I’m not super attached to my clothes and it’s cute when you see how small your girlfriend looks in your sweaters.”
What item of clothing in particular do you love to see a girl wearing that is yours?
“If it’s got my name on it I love her wearing it because it might be her name later on.”
“Long T-shirts that she uses as night gowns haha.”
“Uh, probably like my hoodie or a hat. It’s playful when she takes my hat and tries to wear it but it’s too big.”
“Hoodie and/or sweatpants. It’s cute to see your woman in an oversized hoodie. Comfort over style any day.”
“I would love to see a girl wear my MisterWives sweater because it’s my favorite band and it will be big on a girl who looks cute.”
“Anything on the upper body is usually cute. :-)”
Any item that you are against them stealing? Do you have any pet peeves over any particular item?
“I feel like her taking my underwear would be weird…”
“My work boots. Your dunkin donuts iced coffee doesn’t pay for itself you freeloader.”
“I’m pretty big on sharing so nah.”
“Nothing in particular but she always manages to take things that I especially like. Never the things I don’t care about.”
“My underwear, that’s just gross. Happened to me once during a hookup and it was freaky.”
“My Borat style swimsuit. Don’t touch the suit guuuuurllll!”
Any criteria for letting a girl wear/borrow your clothing?
“She has to return them! Yeah, returning is a must, please don’t wear my favorite of anything without asking and that’s it really.”
“There are times that are rare that I don’t get me clothes back but they mostly get returned back so I have no problem with doing so.”
“No one but my girlfriend.”
“If I’m seeing this girl again she can always have something.”
“Ask kindly. I’ll definitely let you use it.”
“If I wear it a lot then don’t take it.”
“A girlfriend can use my clothes with no obligation to return.”
“Ermmm just girlfriend. I’m pretty sure I’m still out a sweatshirt and some flannels from letting a random girl borrow them…like a friend sure because you’ll see them again and they’re good for it. But one night stand? Man, clothes are expensive.”
“Depending on who the girl is, I will allow a friend to wear something of mine. I would let a girl wear or borrow some clothes if we are in a relationship, as well as letting a girl who I’ve had a one night stand with just so they will have something comfortable to wear.”
“It’s fine unless I want to wear that article of clothing.”
“I want it back. I don’t care if you borrow it but if I bought it, I want it back.”
So the results are in ladies, 9 times out of 10 your man won’t mind if you’re in a serious relationship, just ask first. And don’t make a move for his underwear, that is sacred ground to them it seems. Also, steer clear of his favorite items! Friendships seem to also be questionable territory, but if you’re a one night stand, only take the item if you know you will never seem them again. Or else risk the chance of developing bad blood. That’s up to you, but may the odds be ever in your favor and good luck with your small-scale thievery. 😉
