A few weeks ago Jerry and I trialled our new shapewear brand, Lytess. We’ve had a great response, and now that the range is being snapped up at figleaves.com we hope that you’re seeing the same positive results we did. We want to hear about how you’re getting on so why not take part in the figleaves community?
Throughout the trail we let you keep tabs on our progress at Facebook and Twitter. And it was one of your tweets that inspired the latest in the team figleaves wearer trials. One of our Twitter followers got us thinking when he told us that if we did shapewear for men, he’d try it.
How refreshing that we live in a day and age where men are just as preoccupied with their beer bellies as we are with our post pregnancy paunch. So with that in mind, we set about coercing one of our own into taking one for the blog team.Luckily for us our Jonny was game.
We gave Jonny two different garments to try. The first was the white RipT Fusion torso enhancing undershirt, the second was the black Equmen Helix mapping long sleeved top.
RipT comes from the same company that have given us the popular Yummie Tummie brand. The t-shirt is styled in simple white cotton but features a control panel across the tummy area to give a sculpting effect. We know what you’re thinking – less time in the gym.
We asked Jonny what he thought and he told us he found himself sitting up straighter and that the Fusion was having a great effect on his posture. He also found it comfy and not at all restrictive, a definite plus for a shapewear product as any girl in her magic pants will tell you. it will also be the perfect addition to your winter warmer wardrobe as it adds that extra layer to keep out the cold, something Jonny found beneficial on his walk to work.
Equmen is a product that Jonny’s wanted to try for a while. Unlike the RipT which features a simple shaping panel, the Equmen Helix mapping shirt has been technologically crafted to work wonders on a man’s upper body, creating a masculine silhouette. Gok would love it.
When Jonny first popped over to tell us bloggers that he was trialling it that day, we weren’t surprised at all. Cue lots of gushing over how improved his posture was, we hope we didn’t embarrass him too much.
The Equmen is also available in a vest and a t-shirt so it’s truly shapewear for all seasons. Jonny will definitely be investing. He would recommend that you should buy a slightly smaller size than usual to avoid losing the shaping effect when you wash it.
If you’ve got a winter wedding or a job interview coming up this will be the perfect shape up to layer under your shirt and tie. We also think that beneath one of our delicious Calvin Klein fitted shirts or soft to the touch John Smedley knits you’ll be receiving both envious and admiring glances left, right and centre. And if its your bum that needs sculpting then Equmen are on hand with their range of undies available in the same fabric. Now who wants to volunteer for this one boys?
