Bodysuits for the Guys
I was interacting with Leandro from Tigerheat Productions about a bodysuit he has come up with and I realized I never discussed the topic here. So I thought it is time to cover them. I did write a post for Underwear News Briefs on them in the past. Read it here.
Bodysuits are something that most probably think less about for guys even more so than bikinis and thongs. If you look at them as underwear and an undershirt in one then you can see an advantage for them. Your undershirt won’t be coming untucked if it is part of a bodysuit. I have tried both thong cut and bikini/brief cut bodysuits though it has been quite a while. They became more of a sleepwear option for me though. I suppose I could see them work probably for exercising too.
My problem with them for all day wear is being able to go to the bathroom. Depending on the bodysuit they aren’t made that easy to allow you to do so. A couple I tried you’d either have to slip yourself out the side to pee or take your shirt off too. For number two, you have to do the shirt removal method to slip the bodysuits top off to pull them down. Then I found a pair with snaps in the crotch. That helps with number two, but if you unsnapped them at a urinal you’d probably look silly trying to get them resnap. Guess slipping out the side would make the snap one better for everyday wear. So the ones I tried just seemed like better choice for short time wear or as PJs.
Bodysuits seemed to have evolved, since I last tried one. I have seen some different bodysuits over the past year or so. Some have been made to look more like a tight fitting t-shirt, long sleeve shirts, and even ones that had hoods. Some designed with exercise in mind. Others inspired by showing what you got. Probably the brand I’ve seen the biggest expansion in bodysuits is Body Aware. Their YogaAware Bodysuit is one that tempts me to really give a bodysuit another try even though it wouldn’t be easy for using a bathroom. Rufskin’s Dive looks like it would be a great option for workouts. Doesn’t look like Pistol Pete offers the ones they had that really looked like shirts though Body Aware recently added one that has a regular tank top look called Simply Stripes Bodysuit.
If you liked the 80s thong bodysuit the ladies wore as exercise outfits then Leandro from Tigerheat Productions has one in a similar fashion for us guys. Here’s what he says about his bodysuit.
The idea around that model definitely comes from the vintage world, especially from the man bathing suits of the 30’s, a touch of circus feeling along with wrestlers of the 80’s but definitely in a modern way. Considering the strong enterance that the female bodysuit made in these last 5 years (with a very sexy American Apparel image), I wanted to give something similar for guys and men.
The difference with the most man bodysuits you can find on web is that it’s surely higher cut on the crotch and it exposes the chest more (thinner straps and lower cut); the purpose of my bodysuit, shaping the body form so good, is to feel sexy (for a man of EVERY AGE – I tried it on and looks great also on 50 years old guy) and edgy at the same time.
Have you tried a bodysuit? What’s your thoughts on them? Any recommendations on one?
