One of the hottest trends in the intimate apparel industry over the past couple of years has been the growth in sales and availability of men’s shapewear.  Compression T-shirts, briefs that both slim and enhance, and tummy shapers, sometimes known as mirdles, have become hot topics of talk shows and fixtures of men’s underwear departments in stores across the United States.  But far pre-dating this trend, men, choosing to dress as women, have long been buying bras, panties, and shapewear made for women.  It’s pretty difficult to estimate how many men constitute this demographic.  But quickly searching the internet for websites discussing crossdressing issues, it’s easy to get a sense of the great strength of this often unrecognized source of intimate-apparel demand.
