A girdle for guys

Guys looking to lose the beer-gut don't have to do crunches or go on diet.

All they need is a girdle.

That's the new contender in the boxers-versus-briefs battle -- so-called "bodyshaping" underwear.

In other words, a girdle for guys.

Jeff Lewis tells The Wall Street Journal his elastic skivvies take an inch-and-a-half off his waist.

The 26-year-old events coordinator in Phoenix says it's "an instant ego boost."

The Journal reports retailers find younger men are more open to wearing body-shapers.

But then there's the potential problem of explaining the shaper, should an intimate situation occur.
