Women have suffered decades of painful shapewear: everything from corsets, shaper bras, control-top panty hose, and Spanx have bound, tightened, smoothed, and restricted our blood flow while doing it. Not that we aren’t glad for a smooth panty line now and then, but seeing our male cohorts in cotton boxers and loose, forgiving pants (God forbid their balls get uncomfortable) leaves us a little bitter.
Good news: Companies are starting to level the playing field with shapewear for men. Spanx® for Men has started selling compression undershirts , and the men’s clothing company Under Gear has started selling a treasure trove of “shape-enhancing” underwear, including the Tummy Belt to the right.
The thought of our boyfriends in Spanx is entirely unappealing, but we’re happy to see that we’re not the only ones being duped into buying uncomfortable, expensive devices to keep our every bump, curve, and line in check.
