When Men Must Wear Brassieres | Minimizer Bras For Men
Men must wear brassieres? Why? Well, men need support too you know. Not every man is a flat chested, muscled behemoth. Some men have breasty chest tissue which needs support as well. The official name for one form of this condition is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia involves the growth of mammary tissue in the male, resulting in breasts on a male. This is not to be mistaken for the 'moob' phenomenon in which a male simply puts on a fair bit of weight and as a result of this grows chest tissue in proportion.
Men suffering from extreme gynecomastia often undergo surgical correction procedures, though not all men who suffer from this condition can afford the procedure in certain countries which do not provide health care to their citizenry as a matter of course. Freakin' barbarians. (Living in a socialist empire has made me look down upon those who leave people to suffer should they not be fortunate enough to be able to pay for insurance.) But I digress.
Men who don't have access to corrective surgery therefore need brassieres. As any woman with more than a B cup knows, breast tissue can quickly become uncomfortable, even painful if it is not supported. Whether additional breast tissue is caused by excess weight or medical conditions, brassieres provide effective relief throughout the day.
Minimizer brassieres are brassieres designed to flatten and minimize the bust. Men who do not wish to appear to have breast tissue find these bras a godsend. Traditionally, minimizer bras have been designed for women with large chests who don't want to be wandering around looking like Beth. (You know, Beth, from Dog the Bounty Hunter.) Men can take advantage of breast minimizing brassieres as well.
Minimizer bras work by flattening and 'rearranging' breast tissue so that breasts appear to be one or even two cup sizes smaller. These brassieres start at a 34 C and go up from there, so they're really only suitable for men with a significant excess breast tissue issue.
The beauty of these brassieres is that they can be as simple and functional as you like (as demonstrated by the Bali Passion Minimizer bra pictures in the middle), or more glamorous, like the Wacoal Sleek and Subtle brassiere displayed on top, or the Bali Satin Tracings brassiere displayed on the bottom.
Excess breast tissue doesn't have to be a terrible problem, it can be managed and even enjoyed, if you're that way inclined.
