Do you think this will be beneficial? I understand that how I feel about my body is not rational. I would buy another pair but my surgery and recovery went well. Men's boxer briefs feature a slimming waistband, and a contoured pouch gives support with a comfortable compression fit. Is this shirt supportive enough in the abdominal area for this in your opinion? Not trying to be Fabio but I play in an Oldies Band… Just want something to corral the jiggle when I wiggle so I ordered two of the V necks just now. Thanks for directing me to that post, Tug.
I felt confident about how I looked, in a way that was more like stepping into a new skin than merely cinching up the old. Women do much more in the name of fashion every day. I like the idea of the briefs, just way too costly. It's a slow process of wriggling and tugging it over your torso, an operation that feels like pulling a condom down over a cupcake. I want to try the Spanx cotton undershirts but before I blow 58 bucks on a shirt from on online retailer I was wondering how the sizing may be different. Please know that as soon as I do, I will give you a buzz and share it with you.
I am thinking of buying one of the zoned compression shirts for my husband as he has a large abdominal hernia caused by surgery. My body felt tired and longed for release. From a few feet away, this slimming undershirt pretty much looks like any other standard undershirt. I assume that if you took 100 guys, gave them both to try on, half of them would like equmen more and the other half would like spanx for men more. In the mid-2000s, ushered in the most modern form of form-fitting outerwear. I work out, exercise and stay fit.
Spanx are not cheap and I hate spending money on myself. And I was glad I did, because as confident as I felt all morning, lunch time, it turns out, is the Spanx Magic Hour, when the beauty and majesty of Spanx truly unfolds and you learn how transformative it truly is. Camis with integrated shaping become staples in building layered looks with your favorite tops, sweaters and button-downs. I picked up a S4M v-neck from Nordstrom. Without the give of a regular T-shirt your limbs have to do significantly more contorting to fit within its confines. But it was just for women. Wearing Spanx didn't magically turn me skinny; the law of conservation of mass still applied to my corporeal form.
I fully enjoyed how the undershirt flattened my chest and smoothed my stomach. Does anyone know if the shirt will shrink after washing the first time? I knew the image I linked to was not a Spanx compression undershirt but figured the result was similar. I have lost a lot of weight. Congrats on the success of the site! Helped a lot with the pain and held everything in place while I healed up. I felt myself beginning to understand the appeal of corsets, and thunder shirts, and maybe even kinbaku, the Japanese art of rope binding. Thanks for the great information! Usually buy large t-shirts and I hesitate to try an xtra-large spanx, assuming it will be too loose to be effective.
Crew Neck notes — same fit as the v-neck. I bought a tank version large this afternoon and could only wear it for a few minutes it was so uncomfortable. Underwear will not kid anyone when you are fat. But I've gotten used to it. Then you think: Literally how is this going to get on my body? I did wear them post op.
The moment he put it on I knew he felt good and confidant. When my Spanx arrived I was immediately taken with the fabric—stretchy, with a resolute, sinewy tension. Industry leader Spanx leveled the playing field and re-shaped men's abs and expectations with the launch of their sell-out Cotton Compression undershirts. Also, you have to work to get this off. While my wife and many of the women I know online mention their Spanx all the time—no big deal, just a part of the uniform—I have never met or even heard of a man wearing Spanx.
Fit was great, material comfortable, and it slimmed both top and middle. I was definitely still me. I was immediately overcome with self-consciousness about my appearance. Read More Zappos Reviewer from San Diego on June 27, 2011. Aside from those minor issues, great product.
