Slimming and smoothing is not just a woman's domain. Men's shapewear is becoming more popular as men seek to present a great silhouette and have their clothes fit better. Some men's shapewear, like waist cinchers, have been around for a while. But there are new concepts in men's shapewear - like tanks, trunks and briefs that effortlessly slim and smooth your physique. Brands like SPANX, Ecuman, Clever, 2(x)ist and Sculptees have developed pieces that have revolutionized the market for men's shapewear.
Men's Shapewear Tank Tops With shirts fitting closer to the body, a shapewear tank top is an effective way to streamline your look. Shapewar tanks work the same way as some athletic clothing does, with compression that has both style and health benefits. Many men report that shapewear tanks improve their posture and give support to core muscles. Not to mention, an improved and slimmed silhouette. Some shapewear tanks look just like more conventional tanks, but are made of a stretch microfiber fabric that give you a smooth, leaner appearance. Shapewear tanks, with their close fit and no sleeves are ideal under fitted shirts and tees.
Men's Shapewear Tees Like tanks, shapewear tees work by compression. They have a 'second-skin' feel that, while it may take a few minutes to get used to, ultimately feels very comfortable. Shapewear t-shirts prevent the bunching up of traditional t-shirts while firming the chest and narrowing the stomach. A shapewear tee will look just like a regular tee under your clothing, but with the added benefit of improving your posture, wicking moisture and firming up your torso and midriff.
Men's Shapewear Briefs In principle, shapewear briefs work just like athletic wear, offering moisture-wicking and compression support. But shapewear briefs add a contour pouch that both improves support and enhances profile. Shapewear briefs may also have wide waistbands that streamline the waist and smooth out love handles.
Men's Shapewear Trunks Shapewear trunks are perfect for men who prefer trunks and boxers, but want a slimmer look without the fabric bulk. Like the shapewear briefs, trunks, which can be long-leg or mid-thigh, offer contour support pouches with the added benefit of streamlining and smoothing hips and thighs. And, as with any compression garment, shapewear trunks offer core support and moisture-wicking breathability.
Men's Waist Shapers and Cinchers Also known by the term 'mirdle,' waist shapers are gaining in popularity. Usually designed as a step-in garment, waist shapers offer 360 degrees of control for waist, stomach, hips, and back. Love handles, muffin tops and soft stomachs are slimmed down and smoothed out, presenting a leaner look.
