Many women rely on Spanx to enhance their figures and hide those few extra pounds they’ve been meaning to shift.
But the shapewear is not just for ladies, as The Late Late Show host James Cordon highlighted earlier this week. The London-born presenter, 41, revealed he wears Spanx to present every show, and admitted it’s his New Year’s resolution to ditch them.
James told The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan and RuPaul on Monday: ‘I think I’m making a sacrifice wearing these Spanx. I’m not even joking. My New Year’s resolution is to try to get to a point where I do one show this year, not wearing Spanx.’
And James is not alone; another celebrity who has openly shared his love of the undies is Richard Branson. The billionaire businessman, 69, has proudly showed off his Spanx collection on more than one occasion; most recently at a speaking panel event with the American founder Sara Blakely.

Mr Branson dropped his trousers and flashed his pants to the audience, with Sara sharing a snap of the moment on her Instagram page, writing: ‘He loves the @spanx mens underwear and he isn’t shy about it!’
He previously showed off his Spanx briefs at a Goldman Sachs event in Washington DC in February 2018.
Meanwhile a number of proud blokes have also proudly displayed their shapewear on social media.
