03/10/09 Update: Undershirt Review: Equmen Core Precision Undershirt
I’m sure you all have been anxiously waiting for me to write about my experience with the Equmen Core Precision Undershirt. Well, today is the day I’m wearing one and I’m about 6 hours into wearing it.
If you recall, I received a sample of each one of their undershirt styles (v-neck, tank/singlet, and long sleeve). So far, I’ve worn my v-neck three times (two times working out and it’s the one I’m wearing today), and my tank/singlet once while working out.
Although I’ll cover the details of my experience with these new high-tech undershirts in my upcoming review, which I’m sure everyone is waiting for, I will share a few initial thoughts from wearing it today:
- Slimming undershirts are a little tough to get on. The Equmen is slightly harder to get on than the other slimming undershirt I reviewed not too long ago.
- It’s about impossible to get one of these types of undershirts on without getting deodorant on it. Thankfully it wipes off pretty easily.
- I look like Batman (in a good way). The minute I put on this black undershirt, I looked in the mirror and thought it would be something our good friend the caped crusader would wear.
- Tight, but extremely comfortable throughout. This medium sized undershirt fits my roughly 175lb, 5’9″, average built frame extremely well. Also, while the shirt fits snugly, it is not making me any warmer than when I wear a regular undershirt. In fact, I feel a wee bit cooler wearing it.
- The smooth, slippery fabric allows my outer shirt to hang very nicely.
- Very good support in the shoulders, arms, torso, and upper ab area. This is where I feel the majority of the comfortable compression.
- Takes off about 1/2″ from my love handle area. The picture here to the right is how an average built guy (not a model) with moderate love handles looks in an Equmen.
- Due to the compression, I have to tuck the undershirt into my boxers. This is no different than the other slimming undershirt that I’ve tried.
- Due to the length, the shirt reaches around my bottom/butt and front “lower extremities”. The shirt rides up from time to time, but because of the stretchy material, the bottom rolls up instead of coming untucked. As I sit here writing this post, the shirt bottom has rolled up to around my waistline. When I get up, I’ll need to pull it back down. A little annoying, but not a deal-breaker.
Overall, I’m kinda diggin’ how this undershirt feels. No signs of wanting to take it off, so I’ll be comfortably wearing my Equmen for the balance of the day.
More to come in the full review.
