Thirty-five percent of sales are to wives and girlfriends to give to their mates?

Reverse the genders and call in an army of divorce lawyers.

undershirts that fit and feel like a wet suit
Good God. I wear wetsuits while surfing (note the slimming effect) and I can not imagine wearing one all day in temperatures above 60°F or so.

"Men's shapewear is one of the few up-and-coming trends you can actually put your hands on," says Marshal Cohen.
Er, no. Nope.

Guys will buy them a size too small,and muffin tops will be of gargantuan proportions.

"Nonetheless, the garments' impact is being felt, according to some retailers."

I'm not going to go there, but I'll let others lead the way.

$20 says the first 911 call from a guy stuck in his girdle will be from Florida.

man girdle = mirdle?

And the article goes on to say that the guys who really need them (referred to as Pete Potato-Belly) aren't the ones acually buying them. No surprise there.


Some guys don't need them like this one here

Remember: The potatoes go in front, not in back.

Because it will be so sexy for your woman to get romantic, start unbuttoning your shirt, then collapse in laughter as you flop on the floor struggling to peel yourself out of the mirdle...

Lovely picture of the guy in Texas, Bill. bonmot that isn't you in that picture is it? I don't think I would want a man that wore a girdle/mirdle. Guys should just be guys.

Re Bill's link: "This is ok for a male revue nightclub, but not for public daytime," said Oaks

Um, no. This is not OK for anything except - maybe - the privacy of his bedroom.


cindy, I'm with you on that one. The same goes the other way of course. Remember the scene in Animal House where the girl passes out and he's left with two handfuls of toilet paper?

Isn't that fals[i]e advertising?


Now all the guys can quit borrowing the little lady's girdle for those special times.

Can't wait for the next version featuring cupholders.

Nope. Not me. I'm in Houston.

But those shorts are pretty sweet . . .

When the airlines start charging extra for the clothes you are wearing, only those who are proud of their "foundation garments" will wear them on a plane. The rest of us will wear nothing.

I thought guys were smart enough not to wear painful/uncomfortable things. I mean, most of them don't wear high heels. Then again, they do wear ties.

Talk about an atomic wedgie. I've got an UA type shirt and it do look good when everything is all pulled up into place. Hey, breathing is so overrated.
