Can't suck it in, guys? Get the man girdle

Guys, you’ve the manbag and mantyhose.  Are you ready for the man girdle, or mirdle?

A London department store launched the shapewear this week, according to the Associated Press. The sleeveless tank tops and long-sleeve T-shirts are infused with a special blend of Spandex, nylon and polyester so you have less jiggle around the middle. Don’t think you’re going to look like you suddenly developed six-pack abs.

Control underwear will be available later this year.

“It makes waists look trimmer, improves posture and helps men get into the latest slimmer-fitting suits,” said Gavin Jones, head of the Australian company Equmen. “Men are under a lot of pressure right now to perform financially, socially and romantically. Why shouldn’t we have the same products that women have had for years to make us feel better?”

Equmen’s undershirts promise “to do for guy’s chests what Spanx have done for flabby female thighs.”
