Are you portly? Are you carrying a little weight around the middle? Is your bottom so big that people are remarking that they didn’t know the bustle was back? Are people you don’t even know calling you Chunks?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, we have the contraption for you. It’s called the Mansie (like onesie only with the word ‘man’ in it), it’s available from just £15 as part of George at Asda’s Bodysculpt range and is, to all intents and purposes, the Spanx for men. Or the panty-corselette, depending on what generation you’re coming at this from.
Just one issue: while push-up bras and chicken fillets are for some reason perfectly acceptable for the ladies, there is something not quite comme il faut about padded pants or body-shaping undergarments. While a woman can get picked up from a very high stool, taken home and stripped with no embarrassment when it is found that Spanx are holding in a gut any builder would be proud of and the hefty boobs are actually made of slimy polyurethane, we think it might not be the same story for the mens.
Our advice? Embrace your inner bear (apparently, a bit of a belly is highly attractive – well, that’s what we’re telling everyone) or go on a diet. It really is that easy.
Now you too can be a laughing stock when you get him back to yours and he gets your trousers off.,
