Hello, gentlemen. We need to talk about something. Remember that fantasy you once had about stealing your girlfriend’s Spanx and going extra svelte for the night? No? Ok, ever dreamed of donning your very own Spanx, in the privacy of your own home–but designed for men? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, your pleas for undergarment gender equality have been answered. Yup, Spanx has recently come out with a body-shaping undergarment for dudes, which we like to call manx, and—hold onto your hats—there are three, count them, three, different kinds: the Tank ($55), the Crew-Neck ($58), and the V-Neck ($58)—all in your choice of either black or white. Spanx claims that these babies will comfortably firm the chest, flatten the stomach, improve posture, and eliminate bulk under clothes. Man boobs be gone!
The whole men’s line was actually shown at New York Fashion Week last year and, unsurprisingly, got everyone to talking. Founder of Spanx, Sara Blakely, adds:
The men in my life (and in Hollywood) have been asking me to make Spanx for men for years, so I was inspired to create comfortable and powerful undershirts that provide instant gratification without gimmicks. It’s your favorite t-shirt without your least favorite part… love handles.
Gals, if your man’s moobs need some taming, you can snag him a pair of these online at Spanx.com, or you can also find them at Neiman Marcus stores. But, if you ask me, I’m not sure if I’d want my boyfriend to… go there. I’d actually rather have that beer belly hanging out. However, I am pretty happy that, now, men will come to realize the pain and ridiculousness that chicks go through just to look good. Can we get an amen?
