Gynecomastia Garments – Are They Really Effective?

Gynecomastia garments, clothing and shirts can be very effective in hiding the condition and allowing men to enjoy a very good quality of life apart from having to deal with this condition.

As to the effectiveness of the garments, it’s really a matter of buying from a reputable company, not a fly-by-night clothing site online where you cannot feel or see the material or try it on.

The secret to gynecomastia garments is in the thickness and compressive quality of the material. When shopping for clothing for gynecomastia, it’s essential to have hands on and be able to try clothes on.

You want to see the results before you take it home. There are going to be good quality items and poor quality items. In this case, you will get what you pay for. While gynecomastia garments may seem expensive, they are the most affordable option in treatment of the condition. The clothing is usually designed to last a long time, and you will get a lot of use from it.

Compare the costs of one shirt – generally between $50 and $100 – with the cost of breast reduction surgery. It seems nominal. Even a wardrobe of compression clothing would seem cost effective compared to the real costs of an operation, recovery, and time missed from work.

Compression shirts come in all styles and colors. There is something to fit almost everyone’s needs. From undershirts to tank tops to whole body compression suits, they are designed with real life in mind and want to help you regain a normal life.

From 40 – 60% of all men have gynecomastia. Not all men want to go through invasive surgery and are looking for a quick fix to their problem. Gynecomastia clothing provides great results for them, and it does so without permanently altering the appearance.

Shirts or vests can offer a variety of compression options to meet your individual needs. All of them have one thing in common- they work to hide the condition, immediately.

There are many benefits to wearing gynecomastia garments:

  • Affordable solution
  • Quick fix
  • Temporary results
  • Immediate results
  • Painless and safe

There is really only one drawback to compression shirts:

  • It is only a temporary solution

Surgery aside, compression shirts are the best option for men who want instant results with no pain and no diet or weight loss. There is nothing to do but put one on and go about your day. Choosing a gynecomstia shirt will depend on how much extra breast tissue you have and how much of it you want to hide.

If you purchase one that is too tight, it’s going to be uncomfortable to wear, and you won’t want to wear it once you get home. The best thing to do is try them on before you buy. Wear it for a few minutes and see if it makes you feel uncomfortable. See if you can easily move around with it on.

You want results plus comfort. There are size charts that you can take advantage of, and get a measurement while you are out shopping. It will be worth the few minutes it takes to do this. Get a correct fit so that your money will be an investment and not a waste.

Men’s gynecomastia shirts are available to buy in most retail stores or malls. We recommend going to a brick and mortar store and not shop online.

You may order something and get it in the mail only to find out it doesn’t fit right, the material is not quality, it is cheaply made, and worst of all, they do not take returns.

Go to a store and pick out what you need. Some quality brand names are Under Armour and Insta Slim, but there are many reputable stores and brands out there.

No matter what brand you decide to go with, compression shirts are guaranteed to be effective. Be careful when shopping to examine the materials used to make the clothing, as some types of materials can absorb sweat, and other types can wick the sweat away. Material also should be considered whether it is durable and good quality.

Cheaper garments are going to lose their compression integrity and wear out sooner than good quality clothes. Once they lose their integrity, they are worthless to your condition. This is definitely a case where you get what you pay for. A good garment will cost money, but in the long run, it is worth it to pay for good quality.

Once you have invested in gynecomastia clothing, you will want to take proper care of them and clean them properly to insure that they last a long time and you get your money’s worth out of them. If you do not take the time to properly care for the garments, they will wear out quickly.

The following methods of cleaning and drying will help your investment provide long lasting effectiveness:

  • Soak the items in cold water and a detergent that is not harsh. Rinse with cold water, gently ring out and then hang up on a plastic hanger to dry. Garment longevity is the best under these conditions since the agitation to the garment is almost nonexistent.
  • Hand wash in cold water with a detergent that is not harsh. Gently move the garment around in the cold water. Rinse in cold water and hang on a plastic hanger to dry. Garment longevity is also very good, since agitation to the garment is very low. This is the second best method in making the garment last, and will still clean pretty well.
  • Machine wash in cold water and a mild detergent. be certain to choose the gentle cycle. Let the machine wash and rinse with cold water. Hang on plastic a hanger to dry. This is going to provide excellent cleaning, but because of the light agitation to the garment, it’s not going to last quite as long as if you washed by hand.

These three methods of wash are considered the best way to care for your gynecomastia garments.
