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.
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
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:
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.
