Spanx for Men? Manx!

Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized she didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a blemish-free look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and the Spanx revolution began!

Since that time, she was named the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire by Forbes Magazine and one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People.  Her success is easy to comprehend.  Her undergarments provide a comfortable level of body-shaping that women have come to love.

The same slimming technology that works so well for the ladies is now available for men: Manx.  There are undershirts, underpants, and socks and they come in a variety of sizes, colors, and “power” to help you look sharper, stand taller and even feel stronger in your clothing.  The white cotton crew neck undershirt looks great under v-neck sweaters that might otherwise be a less-than-flattering fit for us Suddenly Solos who don’t have a six-pack anywhere but in the refrigerator.

There is an online catalog ( to see what’s available. Remember that, like all undergarments, they can only accept returns for items that have not been worn, altered, or washed.  They are opening retail stores if you want to check them out locally.

Women have been way ahead of us in using “assistance” to enhance their physiques, so there is certainly no harm in us using such slimming technology as well!  Not to unfairly “stretch” the advice we give, but we always endorse asking for “help” like this when it’s available!
