Looking for something new to add to the undershirt drawer? Sydney, Australia-based Equmen has ventured into the brave new world of men’s compression garments; a.k.a, “shape wear.”
While more familiar at the gym, these products are designed for everyday wear. We like to refer tothis category as “fitwear.”
Their core compression singlet style undershirt which we tested helps support your body, including your back, shoulders, and stomach. It is made from an engineered compression fabric and has an ergonomic design meant to optimize health and well-being, from the boardroom to the running track.
The singlet’s design gently pulls your shoulders back to help provide better postural and reduce back pain. The unique mesh fabric cools your body by wicking away heat and moisture. The fabric also has embedded anti-microbial properties that help you feel fresh throughout the day.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the second-skin fit of the Equmen singlet provides targeted compression and does indeed visibly slim for a more tailored look. “Compression” is a key word here, so be aware that it’s an unusually snug fit if you are not used to this type of garment. However, we found it to be generally comfortable and fine for all-day wear.
After testing it out for some time, we have to agree that it does a pretty good job.
So, yes gentleman, if you are looking for men’s shape wear, it does indeed exist. And, Equmen is a great place to start.
