He's got legs! He knows how to use them!
Remember that scene in "Bridget Jones's Diary" where Bridge finally gets hot and heavy with Hugh Grant, when BAM, he discovers her grandma-like bodyshaping armpit-high underwear? Totally believable, right? Who among us hasn't faked a tiny waistline or dimple free legs with some hardcore help from our elastic BFFs?
Ladies and gentleman, the struggle is over. It's time for true equality. It's time HUGH GRANT wiggled into some Sunset Stardust Shimmer Control Top Leggs!! Power to the people!!!
We present to you...
Some dudes are choosing to smooth out last night's sixer of Heineken with hosiery. Read all about it at this Today show article. Here's an excerpt from the Comfilon Web site, which makes the model pictured above:
"The fabric is smooth, and glides extremely well under trousers, massaging and energizing your legs all day. The comfortable control brief has additional spandex to firm up the abdomen, and the reinforced toes provide added durability. The specially designed male-comfort front panel on this style has no fly opening, and no gusset is needed. These are great for travel and sitting or standing for long periods of time. Indulge yourself today!"
Word is, these are popular with construction workers who hate the bulk of long underwear. Some people use them for medical reasons, like compression. And others just want to feel fierce! WORK! DON'T HATE!
Check out other man-shapers at luxelegwear.com or equmen.com. And next time you're on a date, try seductively dropping your purse so he has to bend down and get it. If you see control top action peeking out of his Dockers, rest easy. We've come a long way, baby.
