Being in the firm grips of my inner autumn sloth I virtually jumped at the offer to try out the miracle hotpants which promise to help you lose weight and cellulite by just wearing them 30 minutes a day. YES! Send them over, prontissimo, please!!
Day 1: The magical item arrives, looking like a wetsuit - making me wonder if I could make my own Lisa Marie Fernandez bikini from it. There's also a folder full with happy women who've lost loads of weight. The folder* looks good in the bathroom between the creams, I find. (*unopened).
Day 2: Full of anticipation I put them on for the 15-minutes-jumping-around-in-ashtanga-yoga-style morning routine. Can't feel anything, but when I take them off – yesss, slightly sweaty. Success.
Day 3: Forget to wear them.
Day 4: Wear them for playing tennis (feeling extremely silly, even with shorts on top). After 1 hour: 'Okay, I might have lost, but just check out how HOT my thighs are!' Hubs: 'So what, you'll just overheat, and sweating in one body area doesn't mean you'll actually lose weight there.'
Day 5: Desperate email to the Zaggora people; they email back: No worries… 'Studies have revealed that for every gram sweat you produce you also burn 0.5 calorie as your heart works harder to circulate blood around the body.' Mmmh.
Day 6 ff: Back to usual laziness. Wondering if the pants could be used as fashion item. If I turn them inside out I could try to create a fitness-fetish look…
Resumée: Yeap, le 'otpants make you sweat – the more you move the better (duh). Lazy slugs can sign up for my bikini diy class…
