My photographer gave me one for free when I hired her and I actually am wearing it right now. Feels like Vics Vapor Rub, they say to keep it on for 45 minutes but I have had it on for about 2 hours.
I read reviews and pictures and got excited and just bought a 4 pack online. I don’t care if the results are temporary, I am not “big” to begin with, but just want my tummy super flat on my wedding day in 3 weeks. My fiance thinks it is a total scam and said I look ridiculous. (he wrapped me in saran wrap).
So, has anyone tried these and do they work? I will let you know my results when I take this off. I am going to be ticked off if I wasted money on this 4 pack. haha

I don’t know if you should keep it on longer then advised especially over twice as long, you might get a rash

I want to try it ! And I agree I wouldn;t leave it on longer than it says I’d be earie of side effects.

I always wanted to try it but so many people swear it’s a scam or “just makes you sweat” that I refused to order it. Post before/after pics!

all those do is essentially make you lose some water weight and then you gain it back. there is no quick fix for issues at all, just hard work and dedication.

@kate22ca: I tried them on three different occasions with absolutely zero results from two different distributors who offered off random excuses such as:
-drank too much water
-didn’t drink enough water
-wrap was too tight
-wrap wasn’t tight enough
-you exercise too much
-you sweat too much at night
-you didn’t leave it on long enough
-you left it on too long
Blah, blah blah. No they don’t work.

I’ve tried the products, as well as a few of my friends…funny, from a fellow photographer friend that was selling them also (who I believe was photoshopping the photos to show us before and after images)…well, that crap didn’t work for any of us. Scam.
If it were a miracle and worked…everyone would be doing it and not going to plastic surgeons for work, imo.

Tried them. Was convinced they worked because I saw an inch loss. Yeah, they didn’t work so much. One, they burned like a mofo, and you should NOT keep them on longer than directed. Two, they are expensive suckers for temporary results. Three, if you don’t get results, the company really gives you a nice runaround of what you did wrong, which is all outlined for you in @Treejewel19: post.

A girl I worked with tried them, and reckoned they worked. Although I spoke to her on the phone the other day and she was complaining about how much weight she had gained, so I guess they don’t actually work after all! I don’t think there is any quick fix, might be alright for a once off even if you want everything to feel tighter, but for the long term, I don’t believe that it will make much of a difference.
The way I figure, if there was a quick, easy way to lose weight, no one would be overweight!

I’ve tried it, and you could sort of tell, but it wasn’t like–boom, flat tummy! Tragically.

I went to a beauty spa and had it done by one of the attendants. I did actually lose several inches, and I was about average weight. I’m not sure I would do it myself though.
MMA fighters have to cut weight before weigh-ins and often do so my using some kind of mineral salt bath. Though it is likely very dehydrating.
