Has anyone tried any of the multitude of miracle shrinking wraps? I see facebook events for wrap parties and all sorts of nonsense and it has gotten me curious. Like most of you out there I have a strapless dress and I am looking for something to suppliment my diet and exercise. I’ve lost a lot of weight (35 lbs!) but now my arms are so muscular I feel like they still look fat. Any advice?

@musiqueboxdancer: I did it before my wedding. It’s very short term, but it definitely reduced the cellulite (literally for like 6 hours) and made my skin very firm. I would do it again just as a relaxation thing. But I don’t think it makes anything long-term. Congrats on your weight loss! Let us know if you like them, if you try em!

its a quick fix.. like a day long fix. all it does is take out water weight. they’re a waste of money unless you want to get some water weight out for the dinner rehearsal or something.

I’m thinking of trying one for an event we have coming up… even if it only lasts a little it might be worth it!

They work by dehydrating you, so they last as long as you can go without, say, drinking a glass of water. Be proud of your muscular arms!

I tried one like two weeks ago just out of sheer curiosity. I put it on my tummy and left it there for an hour (it said to keep it on for 45 minutes). According to my measurements from that night to the next morning, I lost a couple inches throughout my torso, but I couldn’t actually see a noticeable difference – not sure how it would have worked on my arms! Here is a pic for you to see: left=before wrap, middle = right after wrap, right=morning after wrap
Like I said, I really can’t see a difference at all.
I agree with PP that it won’t do anything long-term (unless maybe you just keep doing them over and over), but maybe it’s worth it to give it a shot and see if it gives you some firming results, even if they’re only temporary for your wedding pics! 🙂 Worst case scenario is that you’re out $50 or something if you get a couple wraps. (Unless of course your body has a terrible reaction to the wrap or something, that would be worse.)

Hmmm it does sound to good to be true.

I have tried them on three different ocassions without any results at all. I was given a wide variety of excuses as to what I did wrong that caused them to not work (drank too much water, drank too little water, wrapped too tight, not tight enough, exercised too much, too soon blah blah blah).
In my experience they don’t work and the only people I know that claim that they do work are those that sell the wraps themselves.
