Liposuction without cosmetic surgery? Some British men will soon find that they can get the same slimming effects without going under the knife through one hidden part of their wardrobe.
A new line of “power pants” are available for men in some British department stores. This is entirely new in the United Kingdom–and we’re wondering if the Queen Mum will approve of these underwear, resembling boxer briefs, that provide body contouring.
Produced by a company called Equmen, the pants use compression–basically, it’s a girdle styled for men with a more masculine name slapped on. The power pants lift and smooth out the buttocks and upper legs–sound familiar, ladies?
Power pants also include a body temperature pouch that works with the special design to keep moisture levels under control.
The new Equmen product is in stores for less than 25 pounds a pair. They’re designed to offer men the appearance of a perfect figure from the waist down. And they can also be used with the company’s previously launched array of “control vests” that trim chubby tummies.
While women may find it funny that men are finally succumbing to the shapers, at least these items are more straightforward than the so-called “cellulite-beating” pants that were released in Britain earlier this year by another company. That product claimed to melt cellulite by way of infrared crystals inside the fabric that heated up the skin when you put them on.
Not much is known about of the success of this product since it first hit stores overseas.
