Advantages: Lose that little bit of weight without changing your habits of a lifetime
Disadvantages: Don't work as well as they're supposed to
After deciding to go on fitness kick, I googled "how to lose weight on my hips, thighs and bottom" and also how to get rid of the dreaded cellulite. This was one of the products which flashed up.
Zaggora were advertising their 2 week challenge-stating that you could lose two dress sizes by wearing these pants to maximise you workout by up to four times.
When I told one of my brothers I was waiting for a pair of hotpants to arrive, his initial reaction was "yuk!!!". There's no way I would wear hotpants! Hotpants is a bit of false advertising really-as they actually come from about your belly button, to a few inches above your knee-depending on your height etc.
Zaggora recommend you wear these for a minimum of half an hour per day to maximise results. You can wear them to do housework etc, but they work the best if you do your work-outs in them.
The zaggora website states that "Hotpants increase energy expenditure during exercise by 6% versus the control garment. Hotpants increase energy expenditure in the hour after exercise by 26%"
The company actually took 2 years to come up with this product. It works by causing you to sweat more- hence losing the excess water in your body. Unlike body wraps, these have long lasting results.
I wore these pants for about four weeks. I didn't go to the gym in them, as I wa embarrassed by how noisy they were. They sounded like I had a shellsuit on under my clothing. I used my hotpants to do the housework in, an the odd Zumba workout. I did lose a little bit of weight, but certainly nowhere near as muh as they promote.
After four weeks of use my legs felt a lot smoother in general- although I did find I had a large bulge on the back of my leg for about an hour after each use.
The hotpants certainly made me sweat more. They were soaking wet everytime that I removed them. Hotpants claim they increase yourbody temperature by 18%- I would definately agree with this, even when I wore them in bed. One advantage to these hotpants is that as much as they make you sweat, the sweat i never visible through your other clothing.
My first pair of hotpants set me back £44.99 plus postage for the originals (black with a yellow logo on them). They have now brought out capri flares (3/4 length flares to target knees, thighs and bottoms) for £59.99, nude hotpants (slightly thinner hotpants than the originals) for £44.99, flares (full length hotpants down to your ankles) £69.99. Hotpants are currently in the process of bringing out tops and creams.
I was a little aprehensive about this product at first as I had never heard of the company before. Since clicking "like" on facebook (they are also on twitter) I have been able to view 'real' peoples comments, reviews and pictures-plus I have already won a pair of hotpants from entering their free competitions which they hold every month.
I would recommend these pants as they are really comfy and I did lose weight without changing my diet or exercise habits. My legs felt really soft afterwards too.
My only snag would be that due to the material (wetsuit material) you can only handwash and drip dry them. Till recently when I won my other pairs and the weather warmed up, I couldn't always get them dry to wear them again. I also think from personal experience and reading other peoples comments, that to get proper results you need to be wearing them for a few hours per day and not just the half an hour which they state.
Summary: Shame you can't wash them in the washing machine
