Mens Slimming Vest are not what they used to be. Gone are the days of white, torn, garments usually worn on a Sunday morning or of men of a certain age under their shirt. Don’t get me wrong, some people still enjoy the ‘practically’ of the basic vest but we think, at Best Body Shapers, that they have moved on a little but in the fashion world.
The term ‘vest’ can now come into it’s own for many different reasons, for both men and women. Of course, we are focussing on the Men’s Slimming Vest – the ones that you see being worn in the gyms and out and about by men of all sizes, shapes and ages.
What are men’s slimming vest?
They are a form of men’s shapewear or body shapers – the terms are generally interchangeable and mean the same thing. They can help you to sweat more when you are working out or just help to keep those extra pounds hidden when out and about. They can be worn under or over other garments and come in all manner of different shapes or sizes.
Some things you need to be aware of before you jump right in and buy your men’s slimming vests:
Have you checked what size you actually need?
Many men buying body shapers and shapewear will just go ahead and buy one thinking they already know what size they need. Don’t. This will be a HUGE mistake as you will end up looking like tube of badly squeezed toothpaste. Seriously – when you take a look at the slimming vests on offer, think about what actual size you are against the charts on the buying page, this will help you avoid common mistakes and especially so avoid you feeling like the vest itself is not working! This is the same whether or not you are buying the vest to lose weight or to hide those extra pounds.
Is it a Slimming Vest you actually need?
Are you just buying it as your first body shaper or do you actually know what you want? This is the next biggest mistake. You may not need the vest as your body may suit and need a different type of body shaper/shapewear such as a upper body shaper. Take a look at our men’s shapewear reviews here and our main information page on body shapers for men – this will give you a better idea as to whether or not the vest is the thing your need.
Mens slimming vest – Moob Support?
We have been asked a lot of questions with regards to ‘moobs’ and whether to not slimming vests can help. The answer is yes! Moobs (man boobs) are a common occurrence and we know they can affect some people – from confidence to just that lack of support that clothing gives in general. A comment was left with regards to whether we know of a men slimming vest that can support the ‘moob’ situation without being too ‘hot and sweaty’. The good news is that we have listened to this comment, as we always do, and updated out reviews below. If you look at the reviews for Our Choice you will see it has over 8000! and 4 out of 5 honest reviews. Take a look at this particular slimming vest and we hope you will agree that it fits many different body styles and needs – especially so with the ‘moob’ situation.

Do men’s slimming vests actually work?
Well. This is a very difficult answer to give as they will for some and not for others. You are shaped differently to the next man and so how can anyone ever say a slimming vest will work for you? However, they do not break the bank so why not just try? This is a question you need to ask yourself really as the ones we have given you in the table above are ones where real people have reviewed them after buying and give their honest, positive in most cases, opinions. Those that give negative opinions may not have attended to the points we made above so for them it may not have worked! What have you got to lose?
So let’s end this with a story form someone that actually wore one. For confidentiality purposes his name is John.
So I wanted to try out a body shaper as I have heard good things about them for years but never thought they would honestly work for me. I lost quite a lot of weight some time ago and have been wearing baggy tops ever since. I’m proud of my weight loss but the skin does cause me some embarrassment when in the gym even though I am saving to get it sorted in the future – I wanted a quick fix as going to the gym is so important to me as it allows me to keep the weight off!
So I went ahead and bought the one highlighted as “our choice”. At first I did buy other body shapers and they have been great for everyday use but not for the gym. It wasn’t until someone spotted me getting changed that they pointed out they had the same problem – loose skin. They pointed out a vest they wore that helped them to keep the skin in but to actually lose more weight too as it was a form of compression vest. I have to say that he looked great and I immediately went home to look online.
I have never been happier and really pleased with the results. Yep, I sweat a lot when wearing it at the gym as that’s it’s purpose! But when out an about with a shirt on I have also worn a vest to keep things in check.
Since wearing it I have just been more confident around places and even spoke to friends about it – both male and female. It wasn’t until then that I found a few also wore them! My friend X wears them all the time to keep his beer belly in when at work – I just thought he looked good for his age! I know that not everyone wears them and I know that you’re reading this thinking “yeh…….okay….but it won’t work for me…” and I can’t answer that for you but just to say it has worked for me so what have you got to lose? I only want to wear the slimming vest until I get rid of the excess skin and a few more pounds but love the other body shapers I have anyway and won’t be giving them up any time soon!
So you can see – you’re not the only man in the world thinking of buying a mens slimming vest!
