Men’s Body Shapers: Do They Really Work?

men's body shapers

Most men would rather be beaten by Ali or Tyson in their prime than admit to having body issues.  But a little insecurity is just part of the human condition. So, of course you work out, you eat better than you used to (right?), and you keep in mind that you are not a teenager who can just eat anything he wants anymore. A man’s body, like a woman’s body, tends to change as it ages.  And this change is typically not of the “getting more studly type.” If your grandfather had a lot of “Dunlop’s disease” (so named because your stomach laps over your waist), there is a reasonable chance that you might one day have it.  If your father has it, and you can feel it creeping up on you, you might need to try something a little out of the ordinary.  A men’s body shaper might be your best bet.  Believe it or not, there are actually body shapers that work, even if you have plenty of “material” to work with.

While even the very best body shaping underwear will not necessarily work if you are outright obese, there are body shapers that work if you just have a bit of a “spare tire” around your midsection.  There are a few different kinds of body shapers that work, but they do not all work the same way. Let’s review the different kinds:

Some men’s body shapers are basically just shirts that fit tightly in certain areas (such as your stomach and chest), so as to give the impression that you are leaner than you actually are.  These are the easiest to use, as they do not require an extra piece of clothing that you must remember – if you normally wear an undershirt, it is just a part of your daily routine to put this on. Some brands you want to try are Spanx for Men, Equmen Precision Undershirts, or even the Underworks compression tanks. Be ware – if you’re a big guy, that is, if your waist is larger than 42 inches, then you’ll have to try Underworks because they are made in larger sizes whereas the other brands are not.

Some other body shapers are more like the “girdles” of old, and actually mold you into a pre-designed shape that looks more manly. These are not your women’s body shapers which are designed to give a feminine hourglass shape.  In many cases, these fit only around your stomach, to give you the more “v-shaped back” look that many men strive for.  These can be useful for when you have no problem with your actual chest or back, but simply have a beer belly that seems impervious to all the situps of the world. You can find this variety of body shaper made by Squeem.

In still another example of men’s body shapers, there are entire “body suits” that take every part of your torso, and compress what is already there.  Other than just making you look like a super hero (if you don’t wear anything over them, at least), these are very effective at basically streamlining your entire body. These are probably your rarest body shaper to find in stores. You will almost certainly have to go online for these and Underworks is a great brand for this type of body shaper.
