While our favorites like Andrew Christian have spent many a season fashioning trunks that shape and smooth, the newest generation of Mens shapewear assures better posture, flattened gut and even the look of a firmer, fitter frame. So, how do you feel about spending every day sporting a "compressed" cotton tank? Retail directors insist these hot-selling items are indeed the tidy, white future.
These soft and sturdy cottons may succeed in giving critics a shapely back and front (left).
Cotton Compression Tank, Crew and V-Neck, $55-$58 each at Spanx.
Even before Spanx's invasion into the male underwear world, highly-pub;icized Equmen produced a collection of solid-color compression briefs, trunks and tees of all varieties that promise to balance body temp as well as create a streamlined silhouette. You'll find stuff like the Body Enhancing Trunk (shown here in blue), available at the stores above or Equmen site.
