Lol. This is so funny bc I was just thinking about this. I was pretty desperate so I decided to buy a box. I tried one wrap,just to see,and it worked for me. I used it on my belly and I did see the “full effect” about 2 days later. I only wore the one wrap for about 45 minutes and got those results.which I’m happy with. They were temporary,for me,and I’m definately okay with that. I know there’s no magic solution but for a quick fix,I say yeah. Go for it. I’m also getting married soon and plan to do the last three wraps a bit closer to the big day:) go for it!!

I did–it did not work. 🙁 I only did one wrap though. Some people say you have to do several to see results, but the girl I bought it from said I would see them after just one and I didn’t. I know other people who have had luck though, guess it just depends 🙂 I have seen things on Pinterest too about making your own…not sure if those work or not either, but they’re a cheaper option.

I tried It Works a few times because a few of my friends were selling them. It worked well (temporarily, like PPs said) on my stomach/waist. But I tried it on my arms, and I didn’t see as much of a difference.

BrantlyCAT:  I’m actually a distibutor for the company…and I wrapped my arms ( and stomach) right before my wedding. They key is drinking water during the 72 hour period! (You get results for 72 hours). You want to drink half your body weight in ounces Of water a day. It sounds like a lot but like I said, water is key! I got pretty good results on my arms:-) I got really busy right before the wedding and didn’t follow through with my workout regime, so these did help.

One wrap will give MOST people SOME results, but I always tell people 1 is a treat, 4 is a treatment. 

Im glad to see your trying it! here are some of my tips, in case you haven’t hard these before.

only wrap one area at once. You can do both your arms, but don’t wrap your stomach or thighs etc.  you can actually cut the wrap to make it fit both your arms but my sister chose to use one full wrap for each arm (her arms are a little larger).

Use ace bandage to hold it in place…if you don’t have ace bandage then seran wrap can work too…ace bandage is good because it’s breathable.

Don’t work out while the wrap is on! You don’t want to sweat and create a barrier.

 And you can leave it on for longer than an hour, but if it’s your first then I would check it at an hour, everyones skin is different.  I actually like to sleep in mine:-)

Bloating can happen but not as likely if you are wrapping the arms. bloating actually isn’t a bad thing, some people freak at first, but when the bloat goes down they often have awesome results. my mom was super bloated (wrapped her stomach) but after about 16 hours she had the best results from one wrap I’ve ever seen!

Which reminds me….do not wrap RIGHT before your wedding! If I you are doing a spray tan, then you want to finish your treatment before the spray tan. For example, I did my last wrap on Wednesday. Did my spray tan on Thursday and got married on Saturday. If you aren’t doing a spray tan, then I would finish your treatment by Thursday.  

oh, and make sure you don’t have any lotion on the area, that creates a barrier as well. And when you are done with the wrap, make sure to rub all the lotion from the wrap in.

I think that’s it.  Sorry if it’s a lot! There are some tricks to it. And I’ve seen some people who haven’t gotten the results they expected and it could have been prevented. If anything…..just don’t forget about the WATER! You can drink other beverages during the 72 hour period but water is always the best choice

BrantlyCAT:  you are welcome! If you do a wrap every 72 hours, then you should be able to get through a full treatment easily, and then maybe a few more before your wedding if you choose:) take pics, it’s easier to see the difference especially with the first wrap.

good luck!!!
