So Can Leggings Really Reduce Cellulite?
So my experiment is over.
I have worn my Lytess leggings 6 days a week for 3 weeks and at least 8 hours a day.
Before I answer the question let me explain why I conducted the experiment.
Over the past year while I have been back at uni I have put on a little extra weight.
Poor eating habits in order to meet deadlines and lack of exercise has seen my weight creep up to the highest post-baby weight for a decade.
The big problem area was hips and thighs.
I read about the Lytess leggings in an article and researched them a little more here.
They promised to reduce inches from my troublesome spots.
I have to confess I don't normally fall for these gimmicks but I was desperate with holidays just a few weeks away.
I decided not to measure as I have also been attending 3 body conditioning exercise classes and run 12 miles a week.
Instead, I decided to focus on the skin tone.
On that basis alone I would say my thighs are smoother and the cellulite has reduced.
Yet, had I lavished cheaper and more loving care with skin brushing, exfoiliating and moisturising I daresay I would have had the same effect.
So in effect I would say think carefully before you part with the best part of £50.
However, there has been one big plus - before the experiment I didn't think I could wear leggings.
Over the past few weeks I haven't exactly fallen in love with them but they have allowed me to wear some of my shorter clothes and in the future they will be an occasional addition to my casual wardrobe.
