Playtex One Size Down

Dia daoibh!

This morning I bring you something a little different. A few months ago I was on a bit of a health kick. I lost some weight and told you all I would share with you my story. I have a lot of various bits and pieces to speak about so I'm going to break it up into a few different posts. Today I want to show you something that I spotted on the Debenhams website which I used and is now on sale.

This is the Playtex Objective 1 Size Down Thigh Slimmer. Normally I'm not one for "fads" like this but as I was just starting my journey of health and fitness and agreed to give it a go! Here are the claims:

"....new generation of active shapewear which is clinically proven to provide effortless slimming and anti-cellulite effect day after day as well as an immediate shaping effect. Doing the work for you, Objective 1 Size Down will help to drop centimeters off your hips and thighs in only 28 days."

So basically by wearing the spandexey, bicycle shorts-like garmet for 28 days, 8 hours per day you could drop a size. Here's how it works. Acti-Mineral ceramic crystals are woven into the fibers of the fabric, stimulating a continuous massage effect of the body, improving blood microcirculation in the area covered by the garment and facilitating the removal of toxins.

I really was sceptical about it but as I said I was willing to give it a go. It sounds a bit extreme to have to wear something for 28 days, 8 hours per day but surprisingly it wasn't that big a deal when it came down to it. It wasn't overly tight or uncomfortable and was unnoticeable under clothes. Also it can be washed normally.

So did I see results? I did lose weight, I did drop a dress size but it's impossible to tell whether these were an aid to my loss or not. At the time I was eating very healthily and exercising 5 times weekly, so I was losing weight myself anyway. In saying that though my thighs seems smoother and I seemed to have a reduced amount of bumps/cellulite.

I decided to tell you about this all today because I spotted the Thigh Slimmer (Long leg above) on the Debenhams website at a hugely discounted price. 70% in fact from €44.50 to just €13.35!! The waistliner is reduced but 20%, that's €40.50 to €32.50 and the and high waist long leg ones are also reduced by 20%, €49 to €39.20. Click >HERE< to have a look.I think at these reduced prices it's worth a go.

The chance to potentially drop a size by just wearing shorts under your clothes might just be worth it!!
