I know we have all seen the new underwear coming out to help guys control what they have…putting it nicely. Women have had Spandex for years to make them appear slimmer to the public. Now, guys are beginning to want the same thing. Equmen has come to the rescue be creating slimming fashions for men. I was very curious about how their products work. You know you’ve seen things online and wondered if they actually worked. Being a tall beefy guy, these really struck my interest and I had to give them a try.
Equmen’s mission statement is:
EQUMEN™ enables men of the world to be at their best. Using the latest high performance technologies and state-of-the-art designs, our garments are engineered to optimize and energize the body, from street to sport, work to weekend.
EQUMEN™ is about looking sharp and living smart. Every man, every day, every wear.
You may ask what this mean to you? The underwear they make helps with posture, slimming, and back pain. They do this by helix mapping used in making the underwear. Helix mapping is a system used to support and reinforce the body’s natural structure to the core. It sounds scientific and confusing for underwear, but it’s just a way to say they have really researched their underwear and believe strongly in its purpose.
I received the two styles…the Singlet and Long Boxer. I decided to wear them to a networking event. Why not try to show my best there? I got out of the shower and I have to ask, “Have you ever tried to put on something nylon/spandex blend after a shower?” It doesn’t work well! I wrestled with the singlet to get it on. When I say singlet, it’s more like a tank top than a wrestling singlet. Had I waited a few minutes, I would have been able to get it on much easier. I tried for about 10 minutes. I wish I had recorded the experience. It would have made for a great YouTube video. I finally got into it and headed to my event. Something I noticed is that it really improves your posture. I noticed how I was standing up unusually straight throughout the night. It also made me slimmer, yet no one said, “Have you lost weight?” I could tell!
I had concerns about the boxers. As you know I’m not a boxer fan, but I do try to keep an open mind. At first, I thought they were going to get loose as the night carried on and drive me crazy. They didn’t! They provided great support and I hardly noticed I was wearing boxers; amazing in itself! They fit great, even though I might have been able to go with a smaller size.
