leeI don’t know if you saw the news this week but Moobs (a.k.a man boobs) have been everwhere. And when I say everywhere I mean everywhere. In fact, according to one survey up to 60% of men are affected by the condition, which is about as everywhere as you can get.

And, here’s a confession – I’m one of them. Don’t get me wrong, mine ain’t so bad they’re going to cause Katie Price any sleepless nights but I must be at least trainer bra size.

So it was with some excitement that I heard Mankind were stocking Equmen high-performance underwear. For those of you unfamiliar with the brand it’s a range of clothing that’s specially designed to support posture, regulate temperature and streamline your body  a little. I’ve been trying out the Core Precison Vest this week and here it is pictured  on me – a real person rather than a model – so you get the idea of what it can do. The main benefit is on the posture front but it does have some useful ‘body sculpting’ properties too.

Don’t get me wrong, if you’re a total lard-arse it’s not going to turn you into Peter Andre overnight but it does hold things in a little (certainly my love handles didn’t look quite enormous).

They are a bit fiddly to slip on (they look like they were made for an I anorexic Oompa Loompa)  but you soon master the hang of it. Now if I can only get my hands on a Reviber Exercise Machine I’ll be ripped in no time….

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
