Spanx for Him?!

Spanx for men, it's flying off the shelves, but don't call it a "corset", says the NY Times, it's "shapewear", and it's HOT!
Is this your guy?... "He's not talking about it", says The Consumerist

Yes, if you've ever worn Spanx you know how like a 'gird__', but without the 'gird__' it fits (a lifesaver)... So here it is for the man in your life, for your husband, the father of your children?!  Well, how the 'he__' would that go over as a 'Father's Day' gift... I'm not really sure... I think it might work, depending on how it's presented... You have to know your Man...

Vanity is alive and well in men, so why not a 'compression garment'... Another 'hush hush' product, says  Mr. Kleinmann of Fresh Pair, "is profile-enhancing underwear, which he called "the equivalent of a push-up bra"!
Maybe that's the ticket, your secret Father's Day gift,  Shhhh, the kids don't have to know about this one.

p.s. It's also being sold in Bloomingdale's, Saks, and Nordstrom's.


  1. I had heard about this. God know I've seen men who could use it! haha

    Anyway, we're -almost- neighbors. I live in northern NJ and I think when you're from the tri-state we all kind of carry the same 'tude.
    I write about fashion sometimes too, like in this post I just did today about the return of stirrup pants:

    Visiting from SITS. Enjoy your day in the spotlight and congrats on the freelance writing gig. That's awesome and my wish as well.

    P.S. Sorry, not buying that you are 50+. You look great!

  2. No way would this fly for my man. I think I'd get a little creeped out if I knew a guy was wearing Spanx.

  3. Hey, why should we be the only ones tortured? I love it!

  4. I know that David would never wear this, but I say if we *have* to then why not them.
