Would You Want Your Man Sporting Shapewear?

Generally, we love shapewear. But every shapewear devotee knows that there’s always the risk of that awkward moment when you disrobe to reveal to that special someone that your fantastic cleavage was in fact the work of floppy silicone bra inserts. Still, much as a torso trimmer may make you look like you’re stuffed into a tiny tube sans clothing, the other eighty people who saw you that day will be none the wiser – and probably think that shapely silhouette is the result of a strict kale and pilates regimen.

So, in the name of gender equality, I should not have a problem with this One-Piece Side Trimmer or Padded Butt Boxer Brief.


But I do.

The website claims these products will give you a “sleek, lean silhouette under tight-fitting fashions.” Personally, I’m not too enthusiastic about the idea of my man slinking around in a silk jersey dress that clings to everything. But maybe I shouldn’t be so judgmental. If a guy wants to wear a one-piece tank top and brief combo with a tummy-flattening panel, I suppose he should have that choice. Unless he’s my boyfriend.

What's your take? Would you buy your guy a slimming tank to match your Spanx cami?
