Surprisingly good results, if a little pricey.
on 11 February 2011
I have a typical middle-age beer belly, so thought a couple of these would be a good idea for those occasions I need to wear a nice shirt and don't want my midriff looking like it's trying to force the buttons off from the inside. What you get is a dual-layered and surprisingly comfortable T Shirt which once on gives you a bit of stomach flattening, but not a huge amount. But that's not the end of the story. I decided to leave the shirt on all day to see what the comfort would be like - and in that area it scores very highly. No pinching or awkwardness at all, and no restriction on movement either. It's very discreet, and not even noticeable under just another loose-fitting T Shirt. However what I did notice is that the shirt allowed me to hold my stomach in comfortably, and after a couple of days of wear on the third day I didn't wear it I noticed my posture felt better and a friend complimented me on my weight loss (remember, this was without the shirt) - so putting a freshly-laundered compression shirt on on the fourth day, I could really start to see an improvement over that first day I'd popped one on. My stomach muscles seem to be improving, and my posture is better already. I grant you these have a premium price tag, and to get the washing cycle right, I've bought three of them so far - but I don't regret the purchase at all. Instant visual benefits, and seemingly good for long-term posture too.
