Sissy Fashion - The Bonnet

Well, in the past I have written posts on muffs and earmuffs, so now I'm visiting another long-standing symbol of femininity, the bonnet.

There was a time when many hats were termed bonnets, but eventually it came to reflect a certain style.  Bonnets were commonly worn year-round, providing warmth in winter but during most times, it served the function of keeping hair tidy at all times and free from wind and dust when outdoors.  These mostly stem from the pre-indoor plumbing amongst the masses eras of society and if you are in any first world nation, you likely have at least semi-regular access to a shower and hair brush.

This would then place the bonnet into the category of a dated and needlessly feminine item, likely to draw stares and a great deal of humiliation if a sissy was forced to wear one in public. If it ties at the chin a bonnet can also add a second level of security for sensory deprivation, holding earplugs (or the like) in place. 


  1. wow ...another common interest. I LOVE seeing these worn by ladies ...and also 'love' the thought of being made to wear them . There is a company on the web that still make these ... needless to say I have purchased one ;-)
    Not sure that there is a way to post a pic here ...so you have inspired me to post some on my blog :-)

  2. I can say that it isn't really a turn on for me to see a woman in a bonnet as it kind of steals away from the "sleek and sexy" style of fashion I tend to favor. In terms of feminization and humiliation it does come more into play, especially paired with something like earplugs for sensory deprivation having the bonnet secured on in a way that it couldn't be removed.

    I am happy that I could inspire you.

  3. I had a fox fur bonnet around 1970. It was great fun (and humiliating!) to take it with me when I went out, put it on, and wear it when I felt it was "safe" to do so. Still, I was noticed several times and stared and laughed at, which added to the embarassment, but not the desire to wear it! It also had two little fox fur pom-poms on the ends of the ties--so sissy!


  4. After years of looking, I discovered an ebay seller who makes the most amazing fur bonnets, mostly in fox. I just had to have one, and then another, and.... White fox, blue fox, black fox, silver fox, and most recently, a pink fox bonnet.
    I surprised myself when I found myself wearing them in public. I was terrified, but I just had to wear them.
    My bonnets all tie under the chin, and most have huge matching fur pom poms. There is nothing remotely unisex or masculine about them.
    I love that they are so effeminate, and I think that the fact that they tie on is part of their attraction to a submissive sissy like me.
    I haven't yet worn the pink one on one of my shopping trips, and I think I hope I never have to.

  5. Thank you for writing. I think I know the seller on ebay you are talking about.

    One of my Mistresses had wanted one like those for me but she wanted a locking buckle under the chin rather than the ties.

    Do you get a lot of comments when you are out wearing them? I know lots of women tend to give compliments when it's something that blatant (although there is also a fair share of hecklers).

  6. Hi sissy, thanks for your kind note.

    Yes, I do get a lot of comments, and yes, most of them are from women.

    They comment on how warm my bonnet looks, and sometimes cannot resist asking to touch it, to feel how soft it is, and that is something that is both pleasing and horridly humiliating, all at the same time. I think a lot depends on their look as they do it.

    And yes, I am also teased and heckled about wearing them too. Although marketed as being UNISEX, they are decidedly sissy.

  7. I've always found it odd that the unisex label is stretched in such an odd way. Men's clothing is already (with a handful of exceptions, usually involving fit more than style) for the most part unisex. While the design might be "masculine" it's the fit that dictates it as men's rather than unisex and even this is sometimes tossed out the window.

    Aside from something like a royal blue rain poncho, unisex really means "designed for men but acceptable for women."

    "Designed for women but could fit a man" isn't really unisex anymore. My first Mistress decided that unisex no longer meant it was forced feminization or public outing and would remind me of this if I protested.

    I have always gotten the feeling that public compliments were still teasing and heckling disguised as a nicety but mainly used as an excuse to emasculate.
