The latest in men's fashion... a male corset

But does it work?

IF GIRLS CAN have corsets then why shouldn’t guys have them too you may be asking? Or probably not. Nonetheless Asda in the UK appears to have obliged by launching its own corset for men.

At £10 a pop and only available through Asda’s George clothing range its popularity appears to have led to it selling out online already. As the Guardian’s Simon Hattenstone points out it’s not actually called a male corset and there’s no suspenders attached but it promises a quick fix for those love handles or five bellies so it acts in more or less the same way as your traditional corset, more usually worn by women.

Does it work? Hattenstone writes:

I do feel bizarrely svelte when I walk around, and notice that my belly quickly develops a smug little wiggle. But as soon as I sit down I want to pass out. Apparently, the corset stops body odour. But that might be because it kills you before you have time to stink.
