Gorgeous Girlish Girdles For Men
What, pray tell, is a girdle? Why, it is a relatively old fashioned piece of lingerie and the evolutionary child of the corset. Put simply, a girdle is a piece of shape defining lingerie which runs from under the bust to over the hip. It promotes a lovely feminine shape and irons out any unseemly bumps of flesh which can get in the way of attaining the perfect hourglass figure.
Whilst girdles are popular in literature (you'll remember Hercules fought the Amazon Queen for her girdle, and it's about to be obvious why,) they have somewhat fallen out of fashion amongst the young women of the modern age.
It is still possible to purchase girdles however, and they are the perfect compliment for men who wish to wear women's lingerie and look good in it. Girdles made and intended only for men are also available, though you may not find them at your local lingerie stockists, and instead of cinching in the waist, these girdles simply provide support for the infamous tummy region where the beer gut tends to grow.
Long Line Classic Girdle
The girdles here are from Secrets in Lace, a lingerie retailer stocking very fine lingerie indeed. First up we have a traditional long line girdle. With pretty lace across the legs, it is almost a pity that the rest of the girdle makes no secret of it support structure, which is clearly visible in lines running throughout the garment. A little but 1920s, a little bit bleached super heroine, how could one possibly resist? This long line girdle shapes everything from the tummy to the butt.
Pretty Panty Girdle
If you're looking for something a little less all encompassing, a panty girdle may very well be the better choice for you. The panty girdle is essentially a panty gone wild and overbearing. Instead of fabric extending down the thighs (which many men don't need due to the stunning state of their legs,) the panty girdle stops at the hips and simply controls tummy, butt and waist. This style of girdle may also be much more practical for the man who would like a shape controlling alternative to a garter belt, as it comes with suspender clips for attaching your stockings.
There's no doubt that girdles are incredibly sexy, incredibly charged pieces of lingerie. Granted, they are certainly more pricey than a plain pair of panties, but I think it is safe to say that wearing a girdle will take your lingerie wearing experience to the next level.
