The male version of the woman's corset, or girdle, is known as the mirdle. The mirdle is a slim, form-fitting top used to tighten up the midsection. It is designed for men who have a large midsection and want to fit nicely into their shirts and sweaters.
The slimming shapewear is designed to compress the waist. Although the mirdle tightens around the midsection, it is still considered comfortable. The mirdle fits nicely underneath most tops, giving the appearance that the man is actually wearing a regular tank top. Mirdles are made out of a combination of polyester, nylon and spandex.
