Shrinking Violet*

Shrinking Violet Weight Loss Kit
Shrinking Violet weight Loss Kit

I must admit, I hadn't heard of Shrinking Violet before I was contacted by them. But was intrigued by the idea, and hell, I'm willing to try anything weight loss wise! I always have that extra bit of chub that just doesn't go away no matter how much weight I lose or how much I go to the gym. I mean I probably could cut out popcorn, but what sort of torture is that?

In the set you get:
'Shrinky Suit' - which is a giant silver plastic jogger and sweater set, I've never felt more hilarious in something before. I actually looked like an alien and both my parents found it hilarious.. my boyfriend definitely wasn't going to see me in it at all.
Oil - which you apply all over your 'problem' areas before getting into the suit.
Tape measure - to measure yourself before and after.
Measurement Cards - to record your inch loss on.

It's supposed to increase your body temperature by around 2% to make you sweat out all your 'impurities'. I didn't actually think it was that warm? I expected to be boiling when I got out of it! You also can't shower for 24 hours after using this, so I was actually relieved it wasn't boiling to wear otherwise I would have showered. You wear the suit for an hour then remove it and rub the oil into your skin thats left over. The oil also makes your skin feel really moisturised and doesn't leave a horrible residue. But it's not the easiest thing to clean up, so don't drop it! (I did).

At my first go, I was pretty impressed as I have lost nearly two inches all over (especially my boobs, thank god). But the second time round I actually seemed to gain 2 inches?! I'm not really entirely sure what happened there, then my next few goes I didn't lose any more. I'm not sure if this works better if you have a lot of body fat, or it just wasn't for me.. I'm not sure. Maybe the salon versions are a little more hardcore than this, but for me I just didn't find any spectacular results to warrant me telling anyone.

Have you tried anything like this before?
