The garments definitely help with postural support as they encourage optimal horizontal extension and retraction of the Scapulae, (upper central key points) giving a Scapulothoracic neutral posture. The value in this for function is to lessen kyphotic stress in the primary curvature which physiologically eases counter-stress in the secondary curvature of the segments. The wearer should therefore be aware of less effort and mechanical stress particularly with prolonged standing or sitting and may, indeed, notice improved ergonomics with upper limb activity.Kevin Lidlow Physiotherapist, GB Olympic Team

Upgrade your behind without any work
According to Equmen, what we really need are briefs that hold and lift our gluteal folds (buttocks, to you, sir) and cocoon our manhoods in a "power pouch" where they're kept safely out of the way while we throw javelins, run around race tracks and engage in other athletic pursuits. Which, let's face it, is much more than your typical jockstrap claims to do.
Perhaps it was just a matter of time before Equmen - which launched its range of posture-improving, gut-reducing, performance-enhancing long-sleeved Ts, vests and T-shirts last year - should bust out into super briefs. And with unique technology such as the seamless construction and moisture-wicking, breathable mesh fabric, these briefs are comfortable, neat and cool enough to wear under the closest-fitting wool trousers.
