MEN'S STAYS
[Updated 3/16/15]

INTRODUCTION

Men enjoy and can benefit from men's stays in the style of back braces, for many of the same reasons that women enjoy corsetry. We are pleased to guide clients who wish to order a man's stay to the proper style for their needs, and to achieve their individual goals.


THE BENEFITS OF MEN'S STAYS:

Styles below are based on a modern-day approach to classic styles worn by military men as well as by dandies. They are designed to:

        • Improve posture,
        • provide back support,
        • trim the waistline,
        • smooth out a full chest,
        • in comfort to ensure a youthful figure beneath male business or evening wear, and even
        • provide the basis for a Halloween pirate ensemble pictured here!


        DEFINITION OF A "MAN'S STAYS":

        There is no "one" technical definition of stays for the manly-man, although you may hear this term, "man's corset," bandied about on the web or in private conversations.

        What normally attracts our men clients include:

        • More practical fabrics or leather,
        • Stiffer or wider boning for more vigorous support,
        • A lower waistline in order to create a superman shape (think Arnold),
        • A straighter top and bottom horizontal perimeter,
        • Sometimes a more "fetish" aspect to the design, including buckles, open-laced gussets, and D-rings.

        All aspects of ROMANTASY's well-regarded high quality, and durable, tight-lacing construction remain the same for men as for women.


        A UNIQUE STYLE: THE SPORTS BINDER

        We are pleased on this page to introduce the unique steel-boned and lined "Chest Buster" sports binder. This style flattens and support the chest and upper torso, and effectively diminishes gynecomastia. This style and our CorVest style may interest our transmen clients.

        WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

        "You have a wonderful way of going out of your way to be wonderful--Thank you for everything!" John (ordered a man's stay with elastic insets to accommodate hernia repair surgery; 4/4/13)

        "You're right, it was good news when I received my man's stays. Have been breaking it in and it feels very good. It has adjusted to fit very comfortably. Good back support and noticeably improved posture when I'm wearing it. Thanks for this design it is much better than the one with the low back. If and when I get accustomed to wearing this I probably will be in the market for a slightly modified version, maybe one for tighter lacing and more waist reduction?? Again, thanks for a good product." Eric (9/11/08)
