Nothing seems to be helping me lose weight. It feels like I have been trying forever. I know my age and health problems have to be taken into consideration and all that, but I am seriously sick of seeing the same number on the scale day after day. I had heard of different things you can try, and body wraps are one of those.
This set from Thin Botanicals, comes with 5 "wraps." I put wraps in quotations like that, because they don't really wrap anything. It's more like giant band aids. They have a hole for your belly button even! I was surprised that they weren't anything like I expected.
When you put these on, you should know that they come off in 3 ways. It seems so easy to put these on. The first time I took all three sections of backing off at one time and tried to put it on my stomach. I ended up having to straighten it out many times before I got it right. The next few times, I had learned and I took off the middle section only stuck it on me and then I did the side sections one at a time and smoothed them as I took the plastic pieces off.
They say you can use saran wrap with these, to create more heat, but I didn't have any, so I used my waist trainer over it. That always seems to make me sweat, so I figured it would create enough heat. I recently got some slimming gel that is in the routine as well.
These wraps are to be used every 2 days, so they work for a total of 10 days all together. Don't use them if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you are having your menstrual cycle. Always make sure to drink a bunch of water while wearing these, and keep them on for 6 - 8 hours. Diet and exercise is recommended while using these as well.
The worst part about this whole experience, was taking off the wraps. I have never felt so much pain and I have taken off a lot of band aids in my time, often when they were attached to my hair. None of that compares to the pain of getting these wraps off. I am all for the wrap until the 8 hours is up and then I hate it!
I do have to say it worked a tiny bit though. I took a few pics and I think my tummy looks a little smaller but I guess you can be the judge. I am not really comfortable posting these pics but in order to do a full review I must, so please no negative comments.
I never thought these things would work, but I have seen them do a little bit for me. They aren't miracle workers, but they just might get you into that pair of jeans you have been eyeing! Check them out on Amazon. From there you can find out more about these wraps, see what others are saying about them, and buy a set or two for yourself!
