Wear this combo, it works.
« on: August 07, 2012, 12:58:23 PM »
I find the best combo to hide gyne is this:

1) Compression tank one size smaller than your actually shirt size. (Everlast 20.00 at Wal-Mart or Underarmour)
2) A t-shirt your actual shirt size
3) A golf shirt that is your actual shirt size as well as being dark in colour, navy blue and black being the best. (I will also wear a brown one because the compression tank really works)

The Everlast compression tank you can buy at walmart is also antimicrobial, which means if you so choose you can wear it more than one day, if money is a factor for you.

I find the golf shirt to be multi-purpose, in that you can pretty well wear it in almost all work environments or if you are on a date as well as in school, if you are that young. The golf shirts come in many varieties of styles as far as patterns and colours are concerned, so you can actually get away with wearing a different golf shirt everyday without anyone noticing. Even if they do, with compression tank and t-shirt already described, they will chalk it up to you preferring that style. It's also reasonable to have a t-shirt on underneath, and so therefore no one will question why you are wearing layers, even in the summertime. The golf shirt can also be tucked in or left untucked, if left untucked they are generally long enough to compensate if you stretch or reach for something, in other words your compression tank won't be exposed.

Been living with it all my life, and I hope this helps some younger guys maybe still going through school or guys who have had trouble picking out clothes to hide it.

Also, one more thing: Match the t-shirt with the with the compression tank. If it's black, wear black t-shirts or navy blue. If it's white, wear white. Just in case the collar comes down a little.

The temperature reached 108 F degrees today. So I wore a tee and a Guayabera.

If I had to spend too much time out in the heat, I would have kept the Guayabera and jetissoned the tee.

Gynecomastia is a fact of life, Only a problem if you allow it to be one. I do not allow it to bother me, If it bothers someone else, then it is their problem not mine.

I will not attempt to speak for Paw_Paw.

I wear a compression sports bra when I am out in public not for my own comfort because as regular bra feels far more comfortable but for the comfort of others. Most people are too ignorant to understand that breasts on a man are no different than those on a woman. Society and the media have projected an image of what a man should look like, over the past 50 plus years this propaganda has become the perceived truth; as the infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels said "tell a lie long enough and it will become the truth".

The masses do not readily accept anything they as perceive out of the norm, so to avoid continual conflict it is often (but not always) easier to project an image of what the masses expect.

It is not right but like so many things that is the reality of the world we live in.

The fact of the matter is gynecomastia is considered a physical deformity. While I salute the fact that there are some people who who would rather accept their condition there are children that are going through the same stuff we went through on here and we have a moral obligation to try and help. I sincerely do appreciate the fact some people are okay with it, but unfortunately that mentality offers no solution.

Gynecomastia is not "normal". Men are not supposed to have feminized breasts, evidenced by the fact that it occurs only when there is a hormonal imbalance or some other factor introduced. I appreciate the spirit behind acceptance, but if anything I think that attitude actually hinders progress.

There are three things you can do with gyne: Accept it, hide it, or have it corrected. In most cases people want to have it corrected, so I think we should have a solution to the issue of appearance within the interim. Especially if there are children who come on here who are desperate for  answers.

Again, I appreciate the spirit of acceptance and salute and respect those who accept it on a personal level. However, I think we should probably drop the ideology that it's normal and society should accept it, and look for more efficient  and reasonable ways of dealing with this traumatic deformity.

Sir I beg to differ with this statement "Men are not supposed to have feminized breasts". Who made you god?

Are you so small minded that you cannot accept a person who was born blind, deaf or otherwise disabled? You demean those people who have little choice but to accept their condition, you demean all military veterans who live every day with sever disabilities. Having beasts is no different. You and most men have all the necessary God given equipment to develop fully formed breasts, to say that this is a "deformity" this is an insult to anyone who can not be what in your eyes is less than perfect. This way of thinking is what leads to ethnic cleansing, racial intolerance and genocide.     

This type of attitude is judgmental and bigoted.

It is physical deformity that I have and have lived with for more than half of my life. I do not discriminate against anyone for having this deformity. I do not discriminate against any person who has any other physical deformity. If anything, I can empathize with them.

If you truly accepted your condition you would view it objectively.

Also if we can keep talk of the supernatural to minimum when discussing medical issues, it would probably be for the better. I am not discriminating against you or your belief system, it just has no relevance when talking about gynecomastia.

At what point does a condition become regarded as a deformity?

Is it a deformity if 1% of the population has it? How about 5%?

Do a bit of research an you'll find that Gynecomastia is no more of a deformity than having blue eyes.

I grew up wearing a tee for an undershirt and a buttoned up shirt over it. It is a habit and it is my usual costume along with a pair of slacks. I do not like heavy fabrics so I do not even own a pair of jeans.

I often wear a jumpsuit in hot weather because I can get them made of a lightweight fabric. The light cloth makes them cooler than trousers and a shirt.

From the Oxford Dictionary:

Definition of deformity
noun (plural deformities)
a deformed part, especially of the body; a malformation:
deformities of the hands or feet
[mass noun] the state of being deformed or misshapen:
respiratory problems caused by spinal deformity

Origin:
late Middle English: from Old French desformite, from Latin deformitas, from deformis 'misshapen'

It took approximately 10 seconds of "research" to find the definition. I used the word in the proper context.

This is the last response I am putting on this thread. This thread, started out as a positive thing, to try and help people who are struggling feel normal in public. It has turned into a debate, which I don't believe is going to help the people this thread was originally started for.

It was just this week on our local morning news show that they talked about gynecomastia! A doctor said that 60% of males are affected be it at some point in there life!

It is not rare, there is no reason that it should be TABOO, if a man would decide to have surgery it is his choice but as it said it should not be TABOO that a men have breast that grow as no fault of his own, and at 60% it shouldn't be all that strange to see men with them. It is no different the ED!

Normal is as what you see as normal or as society has set as normal in your own mind!


All men have breast, some a little more then others!

Then according to your belief in the definition you posted above and your original post do you believe that if someone has a deformed appearance they should be treated differently by society? What is different in your eyes? Would you agree to be shunned by society? To forcefully imprison someone from societies eyes? Should any person who is deformed by your standards be forced at gunpoint to have a surgical procedure or maybe murdered for the greater good?

I and 60% of the worlds male population have developed breasts to one extent or another, assuming as you are reading, researching and commenting on this forum you have to whatever extent developed breasts; then why not end your perceived suffering and have whatever surgical procedure you desire. Then should you survive you would be free to spread your hatred of those you perceive as different from whatever norm you believe others should conform to.

If someone doesnt like their "natural, deformed, whatever you want to call them" breasts then they have the power to have surgery, accept it, or hide it....so i agree with monkey.  I dont see what the arguments about.  Normal is what society percieves.  Thats how it becomes the term "normal"

Anyways, to try and help out my man monkey, i will get back on topic.  I have probably purchased about 8-10 different types of compression garments over the last couple years.  I really like some of underworks stuff but the problem i ran into was the garments showing through when you wear a t-shirt

I think the gc2 compression tank worked best for me.  It is virtually undetectable under even a thin shirt.  Only problem is that it loses its compression after a couple months.  Also, i dont know that it would work really well for someone with moderate gynecomastia. I had a mild case and it worked perfect for me.  However, i just had surgery a week ago so hopefully after a month of the doctors compression vests, I will never need them again!!!!

Sorry guys, but the acceptance forum is over here: http://www.gynecomastia.org/smf/17/

With that said, it's OK if you want to accept it, but most people here are young and advising them to accept it or telling them having breasts is normal, is just dangerous.
