Zaggora Hot Pants seem to be all the rage right now. If you have never heard of them (I hadn't until this review opportunity presented itself), visit their website to learn more about what they are and what they are supposed to do.
According to all of the reviews & articles I have read about the Hot Pants, they are hot stuff! People are losing inches left and right just from taking the 2-week challenge. They are dropping pounds. They are needing to buy new clothes. Which leaves me to wonder what went wrong with my 2-week challenge?
The technology behind the Hot Pants is specially engineered Celu-Lite (tm). By increasing your perspiration by up to 80%, it uses your natural body heat to help reduce body fat and the visible appearance of cellulite.
I was looking forward to taking my own 2-week challenge. I had just started eating healthier and had begun walking 1/2 hour to 45 minutes daily so I was eagerly anticipating losing 2 jean sizes in 2 weeks myself. This was not the case.
The first "problem" that I had with this challenge was that the Hot Pants were too big for me. I ordered an XL because of the clothing size that I normally wear, when a L would have sufficed. Also, because I am short (just over 5'), they fit more like capris rather than exercise shorts. I don't know how much this affected their performance. The next issue that I had with them is that they had a rubber odor which bothered my asthma. The most I could wear them was several hours at a time. I made sure to wear them when exercising and when I knew I would be bustling around the house doing housework. I did notice that they made me sweat. A LOT. It wasn't a feeling that I enjoyed, but it convinced me that the Hot Pants were doing their job. I took measurements before and after, and after my 2 weeks were up, there was no difference whatsoever in my waist, my hips, or my thighs. I tried wearing them under my regular clothes, but they were just too bulky because of being too big. I also don't like how much of a pain they are to wash and considering how much they make a person sweat, washing is something I was compelled to do often. They must be hand washed and air dried. This is difficult to do if you wear them on a daily basis. Apparently, some people even sleep in them! I also don't like the big bright yellow logo on the leg, but that's just me.
The manual that I received with my Hot Pants states that results will be seen if worn consistently after 4-6 weeks but then also states that in tests, 2 jeans sizes were lost in 2 weeks after sampling 20 women. It doesn't really give instructions as to how long each day they should be worn, although it does state that best results will be achieved when worn during a workout.
I am planning on giving my Hot Pants another try, although I am still uncomfortable wearing them in the XL size and I'm not sure I can wear them for a longer duration because of the odor, but I will give it a go. One thing that I did like about them is that they seemed to help my fibromyalgia pain when wearing them while exercising because of the heat they produced. I also felt as if I were getting a better workout.
I will post my update in several more weeks! Until then, if you'd like to try the Hot Pants for yourself, they retail for $70.77 and are available in sizes S, M, L, & XL. They have a size conversion chart on their website and they deliver world wide.
