They are called Bodysculpt Trunks -- or Manx (male Spanx), and they just had a big "unveiling" of sorts in the UK.

Similar to their female counterparts, Manx are designed to flatten paunches and disguise love handles.

They cost around $16, they are described as the 'boxer short diet' promising men a streamlined silhouette.

According to Daily Mail, nine of out ten of the men who tried them gave them the full seal of approval.

I know this is going to sound awful.  I buy Spanx, as do most women I know, but I would have a problem with a man wearing it.  It goes along with MY problem with men who spend more time on their hair than I do, men with soft hands, and men who can't fix stuff.

What about you?  Would it be a deal breaker?
