Hanes Premium Power Slim Fit Tee Being Discontinued?

hanes-power-slim-fit-t-shirtA question from a reader about the very affordable Power Slim Fit shaping undershirts from Hanes:

TUG, been a long time since I contacted you. I appreciate your site and information you give out.

You turned me on to the Hanes Premium Power Slim Fit Tee a couple years back, and I have been wearing them exclusively since. It seems like Hanes has discontinued this item, or at least, I can no longer find it. Do you know if this is true or not?

I liked this shirt because it was a nice tight undershirt. I don’t feel that it really did any compression, but that wasn’t what I wanted. The sleeves are short, the neck is tight, at least in the first few months, and it stays tucked for the most part. The biggest feature was the cost, $10 for a compression shirt is unheard of.

Would love to get your opinion on what shirt you think would be a suitable replacement.

Thanks, Mike

Is Hanes Discontinuing Power Slim Fit T-Shirts?

I reached out to my friends at Hanes, and got an update from them, so I got back to Mike with the following response

heya mike,

hanes-power-slim-fit-t-shirt-black

Hanes Classics 2-pk. Power Slim Crewneck Tees @ KOHL’S

just got this official response from hanes about the power slim fit tee:
“Sorry about that, Tug, it slipped through. The shirt is still available at Kohl’s but will be discontinued in a few months.” – Hanes

Other Inexpensive Shapers?

the only other shapers that i came across that are reasonably cheap are these:
http://www.aliexpress.com/category/200003066/shapers.html

though, i couldn’t tell you how any of them perform. i can say that the ones with the fake “six pack” knitted into the ab area are total crap. i have one of those and it does nothing (or practically nothing).

if you decide to try out anything on aliexpress, please be sure to keep me posted.

      heya nick! good to hear back from you (:

      yeah, the utili-t crew is a solid undershirt, but the ones i have aren’t shaping/slimming undershirts. this soon-to-be-discontinued power slim fit t-shirt from hanes was designed to be more of a shaping undershirt than a standard fitting undershirt.

      have you tried any slimming undershirts?
