What You Should Know About Body Shapewear for Men

1016-Mens-undeslimming-LS-FrontMany assume that women are more self-conscious than men when it comes to their looks. However, current trends suggest that men are feeling increasingly pressured to look good. Celebrities like Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum have such great bodies that many men start going to the gym or begin dieting to emulate their images. We all want to look like we’re in the best shape possible, but not everyone can spend three or more hours at the gym every day. But there’s now more the one means to achieve your ideal body image.

Body shapewear for men is becoming increasingly popular among males of all ages. Shapewear can make unwanted bulges seemingly magically disappear from men’s bodies. If you’re new to men’s body shapewear, here is useful information to assist you in finding the right type and fit that will make you look and feel great.

What Type of Shapewear do You Need?

Body shapewear for men has evolved significantly over time; an entire industry is now dedicated to it. The most popular body shapewear for men includes mirdles, mantyhose, male bras and support briefs and boxers.

  • The mirdle, essentially, is a girdle for men who desire to flatten their stomachs for more form-fitting shirts. Different variations of mirdles exist, such as ones shaped like a tube and a full suit. Your Contour offers compression shirts (tank top, short sleeve and long sleeve) in order to provide a slimming effect around the abdomen.
  • Mantyhose, or men’s pantyhose, is the latest trend to join the fashion world. These tights constrict the man’s legs, ideal for wearing tight-fitting pants. Mantyhose also provide warmth during winter months and compression for those with circulatory problems.
  • A male bra is also known as a compression vest, a gynecomastia vest and a manssiere. This type of body shapewear enables men, who have breasts, to flatten them.

What to Keep in Mind when Buying Body Shapewear

Entering the body shapewear world can be a little stressful and intimidating if you’re unsure how to purchase the right one or unfamiliar with the styles. When purchasing shapewear, always keep the end goal in sight. Why are you purchasing body shapewear? This will narrow down your search to what you need. The next question to ask yourself is what level of support do you need. Light? Firm? Extra firm?

One of the most common questions men ask is what size they should buy. At Your Contour, we have sizes that range from extra small to 5 extra large. These measurements are sizing to true fit, which means that they are constructed to be worn under clothes and will hug your body perfectly. To get the measurements you need prior to purchase, measure the part of the body that you are looking to buy for, and don’t measure over your clothing.

Last but not least, comfort is key to buying any body shapewear product. Our shapewear is manufactured with comfortable material that is meant to be worn for extended periods of time.

Your Contour was founded in 2006 after the founder experienced the common frustration shared by many in regard to the industrialized sizes of the shapers. Your Contour produces shapewear that can custom fit any body type and provide confidence to those who want to appear in peak shape without obsessive dieting or exercise. We pride ourselves on our unique products and the confidence they instill in our consumers. Contact us to order your body shapewear today!
