7/12/12 Update: Slim Away Product Review (Click Here)
– original article –
Just had to post a quick comment here about the Slim Away Belt commercial I keep seeing. In the process, I also hope to help consumers who would otherwise be duped into buying this wacky contraption.
Although I’ve never personally tried the Slim Away Belt, I’ve tried nearly every slimming undershirt on the market, and I used to wear those crazy rubber slimming tube belts when I was a chunky little kid. So, I’d consider myself a bit of a consumer expert when it comes to slimming products.
I’ve gotta tell you, there’s very little chance that this product will live up to any expectations you may have after watching this product’s outrageous marketing claims.
Also, look at that crazy wrap-around belt design with a bunch of different zipper-ridden sizing positions. Is there anyway that belt won’t show through your outer clothes? Not a chance. Oh, well maybe if you wear a heavy sweater like the folks in the commercial.
Here are some other claims shown in the product video:
- Evapo-wrap fabric: Seals in body heat
- Elevates perspiration
- Shed water weight faster
Guess what? If you wear any rubberized contraption around your midsection, it’ll likely help you shed water weight (when you’re working out only). If you really want to shed water weight (not healthy by the way) pick up one of those plastic sweat suits.
If you really want to appear thinner temporarily, don’t waste your money on the Slim Away Belt. Instead, check out a Slimming Undershirt or Compression Shirt instead. I guarantee you will be 1,000,000% happier with a slimming undershirt than you will with the Slim Away Belt.
Consider yourself informed (and warned). A friendly public service announcement from your neighborhood undershirt guy.
If you’ve tried the Slim Away Belt, tell me what you think of it in the comments section below.
