SPANX… Why all men should try it!

Women all over the world tend to feel very victimised by the pressures that society puts on us as a gender to look slim and toned, to have curves in

Spanx Cotton Crew

all the right places and to have that all important thigh gap (eurgh, why?!).

And whilst the image is beginning to change for women as more plus sized models are being seen modelling underwear and clothing of all sorts, have you seen a plus size male model on the front of a Calvin Klein packet yet? In fact, have you seen a plus sized male model at all?

So yes, whilst women feel the pressures to be stick thin maybe it’s time to consider the pressures on men to have 6-packs and huge biceps… Spanx could be just the trick to regain your confidence and tone up without spending hours in the gym (who has time for that anyway?!).

Instead of sitting at your office desk, feeling miserable about that bit of Christmas weight that hasn’t shifted, or feeling guilty for dunking more than 1 chocolate digestive in your cuppa, head over to mytights.com and invest in a SPANX Cotton Compression Crew, and I say invest because just like a gym membership it is an investment into being a happy chappy. You won’t regret it.

In case I need additional points to encourage men to buy these genius shirts, fear not because you can’t even tell you’re wearing them, completely discreet and can be worn under shirts/ t-shirts or on their own. However you feel comfortable!

These SPANX tops have a high level of control to firm your chest and abs, look toned and feel confident without the hassle, price and time consumption of a gym membership. Win/win, we think you’ll agree.

If you’re more of a tank top kinda guy, we have just the thing for you as well- SPANX Zoned Performance Tank.

So really, you don’t have any excuses now…

Because you can never have too much support…

There are some things in life it’s just not glamorous to talk about, but it’s much better if you do: enter support tightsNow before you run away with your ears covered, hear me out.  Support tights, it’s true, have long been seen as an old fashioned and frankly downright dowdy, but smart ladies everywhere are realising that support tights are in fact a revelation for those sitting or standing still for long periods in the day.

Support tights or stockings work by applying pressure to the leg to boost circulation.  Poor circulation can lead to a whole host of health problems and affect your hair and skin!  And just like shapewear, we predict it won’t be long until the once-unmentionable garment is declared as a miracle worker by celebrities everywhere.

For classic, traditional support, we suggest you take a look at the range of Elbeo support tights, which is a specialist support brand and does a range of stockings, tights and knee highs in a wide range of colours in deniers from 15 to 40.  These are a good everyday option or ideal for those wanting to try our support tights for the first time as they are great value.

However if you’re after something

a little more chic the Aristoc Bodytoners range is perfect.  Not only do they offer medium support for your legs, they have various control options to smooth and firm your silhouette, including briefs that curve your hips, lift your bottom and flatten your tummy!  This range is ideal for wearing to the office and will give your legs a flawless finish.

Or for something extra-special for a particular event or occasion, take a look at the Falke Active products.  Falke is a top quality German brand that is a genuine pleasure to wear, and luxury is pretty much guaranteed with their products.  The Active Support Tights come in 6 classic colours including skin tone shades and the range boasts a control top version as well as socks and hold ups too!
