Have you ever wished you could have a tighter tummy, slimmer chest, or shapelier bottom instantly? Now, you can. No, it’s not surgery, a cleanse, or some crazy exercise move. It’s just shapewear. You may be familiar with the benefits of shapewear from the ladies in your life, but these undergarments are not just for women anymore. If you haven’t worn shapewear before, you might not realize how many men actually do, especially because you never know who is wearing it.

If the name Spanx sounds familiar, it is probably because women wear Spanx all the time. The company also has an entire line designed just for men. If you’ve never worn shapewear before, a really good piece to start with is their Targeted Core Crew Shirt. Available in both black and white, it’s designed to replace your regular undershirt. Compressing your torso, this garment makes you look slimmer and taller, but it’s still comfortable and easy to move around in. This is a great choice for men who tend to get hot because it’s made from a breathable material and will keep you comfortable all day long.

Spanx’s Slim Waist Boxer Brief can take inches off your mid-section. Available in both white and black, the waistband rests right above your belly button, unlike typical boxers, to tame your lower abs. If you are looking to integrate shapewear into your regular wardrobe, but do not want to feel as if you are actually wearing it, these boxer briefs are a good place to start.


2(X)IST’s Men’s Shape Lift Dual Lifting Trunk boxers give you a rise not only in the front, but also in the back. That’s right, this shapewear will shape and lift your butt, making your hindquarters look as good as possible. Made of 90% cotton and 10% Spandex, they have a comfortable elastic waist and are available in both black and white.

While it often takes surgery, or a whole lot of dieting and exercise to go down two sizes, Leonisa makes it possible in an instant. Their Leo Torso Toner Body Shaper is a compression tank top that helps flatten the entire upper body including the abs, chest, and back. With a zip-front closure, it also supports your back to improve your posture. This body shaper is available in black, white, and nude, so it can be worn under any color shirt. More importantly, it is available in a wide range of sizes, from small to 4XL.

Leonisa’s Leo High Waist Stomach Shaper with Boxer Brief is designed to target the abdominal area only. These boxer briefs go all the way up to the area right below your chest, reducing your waist up to one size. Additionally, the garment’s built-in back support makes it comfortable to work out in.

Bubbles Bodywear

With built-in pockets in the both the back as well as the front, you can add removable foam pads to maximize the size of those regions.
