|Shapewear has been sweeping the feminine nation for years now. Spanx and their knock-offs have revolutionized the way women get dressed to impress. But did you know that there is shapewear for men too?|
That's right; women are not the only ones who can shave inches and visual pounds by doing nothing more than selecting the right undergarment. Men can too! Read on to find out how men can benefit from wearing shapewear to work and formal events.
First, we should explain how shapewear works. Shapewear is generally made from a high performance synthetic fabric. Lycra is a popular choice. Shapewear is designed to fit snugly, so that it removes inches while smoothing bumps and bulges. Think of it as compression shorts for your whole body. Women love using shapewear to smooth out cellulite, flatten tummies, and give their bodies a smooth and tight hourglass shape for formal dresses.
Men may not be worried about cellulite, but who wouldn't want to use a piece of shapewear to flatten their gut a little? Enter the shapewear undershirt: available as a regular shirt or as a cinching vest. Shapewear undershirts take inches off your waist and upper torso, ensuring that you will stand tall and feel slimmer all day at work or all night at a party. Most shapewear undershirts are made with lycra or power mesh and you can choose the level of shaping you desire. For example "moderate control" may only smooth out bumps and bulges, but "strong control" holds in everything that jiggles while subtracting inches.
If the idea of spending all day wearing a shapewear vest is unappealing to you, never fear! You can get the same gut busting effect from a great pair of waist reducing briefs. An extra wide waistband holds in your burgeoning beer belly and gives you that smooth and flat appearance you want. Like the vests, you can choose your level of control.
Speaking of your lower half, are you unsatisfied with your front and back profiles in those tight jeans you love to wear to the bar? Shapewear can help you with that, too. Certain super supportive shapewear garments can smooth out bumps and bulges on your backside and thighs, giving you a toned and muscular appearance. Even better, some shapewear combines the slimming powers of lycra or power mesh with the added enhancement of padding in all the right places.
Certain shapewear briefs and bikinis are made with extra padding in the rear and front. You can wear your favorite pants with the confidence of knowing that you will be attracting attention from the front and the back. For those of you that may be a little shy about boosting your assets, many pieces of shapewear are made with removable pads, so you can switch up your look to suit your mood.
If you have not yet tried out shapewear to improve how you look and feel in your clothes, you are definitely missing out. Try out a shapewear piece and watch the heads turn as you walk across the room.
