Underdressing is when male cross-dressers wear female undergarments such as panties or stockings under their male clothes, especially when out in public. The object of underdressing has been described as experiencing the thrill of a secret, and anticipation of what can be done when the wearer is in private or with a suitable friend.

For example, the famous low-budget filmmaker Edward D. Wood, Jr. said he often wore womens underwear under his military uniform during World War II.
