Here’s a funny visual – me stepping into my Ardyss Abdomen slimming tank top as I’m getting ready to go to the gym. After I get that on, I twist myself into one of my other compression undershirts or tank tops because I like how “stacking” two shirts holds my shit in when i’m running on the treadmill.
Here’s an even funnier visual – me trying to take these (now wet) compression tops off after I’ve beaten myself to a pulp at the gym. Taking them off is pretty damn tricky and it’s like trying to peel a layer of skin off my body.
Although pretty funny, and a pretty horrifying visual to boot, Mrs. Tug and I go through is ritual each time we go to the gym. She even asks me for help in taking off her sports top – which I’m pretty happy to do *wink*.
Here’s a question from a reader who was commenting how difficult it was to put on and take off his slimming undershirts:
I’ve tried the Spanx undershirt and the 2xist shapewear undershirt, and both are fine when I’m wearing them, but are really difficult for me to take off without doing a serious contortionist act. Am I doing something wrong? How are you supposed to take these shirts off without dislocating your shoulder?
Taking Off Slimming Undershirts
good to hear from you and thanks for your comment/question.
yeah, the compression/slimming shirts can be pretty tough to take off (or put on) and it all depends on your personal physique and the design of the slimming undershirt.
if you’re referring to the spanx for men cotton compression undershirt and the similarly designed 2xist shape undershirt, those two are actually a bit easier to get on/off than others.
i’ve learned that for me, the best way to get most slimming undershirts off are to cross my arms in front of me and grab the bottom opposite side of the shirt (left hand grabs right bottom and vise versa), pull straight up the side while keeping my arms crossed, then when the shirt is close to the top, i uncross my arms to complete taking the shirt off. though, it’s a little tougher when the top is wet after working out.
for slimming tanks, if i can, i step in and out of them instead. it looks like something a chick would do, but hell, i’m married and mrs. tug has seen me do weirder things for sure.
hope that information helps out!
