There are endless ads on the radio about body wraps, and I was curious, but I'm also cheap so I didn't want to shell out the $100 dollars. I also didn't want to waste an afternoon on it if it turned out to be a bust, so I decided to go DIY.
The supplies: Bliss Fat Girl Six Pack from Sephora and saran wrap/ace bandages from the dollar store. The Fat Girl Six Pack is pricey at about $36, but you can get at least three wraps out of it. If that's still to high for your budget, I've heard you can use any lotion, I just wanted the extra tightening benefits of this one.
I slathered up, but didn't rub the Six Pack in, then wrapped myself about 8 times with saran wrap. I actually has to re-wrap after the first half hour because the slickness of the Six Pack, plus the fact that I didn't put the wrap high and low enough, creating what I can only describe as a death grip saran wrap belt. The second time was much more successful, I started at my low hips and went as high as about an inch under where my bra would go.
Next, I covered that with the ace bandages, one going from my low hips to natural waist and then a second from there up. Really important that it's snug but not uncomfortably so.
And then I waited, and did chores around the house walking like Frankenstein. And went to bed and got up this morning to the results below. I'll definitely do it again!
These are my results after a week and a half. Note - I was PMS'ing when I took the pic and usually I bloat that week but my results are holding pretty strong.
Thanks for all the comments everyone - I hope you all have as great of luck as I did! Keep leaving questions in the comments, I'm currently on vacation but will check in when I can.
Also, here are a few pictures of the wrap process for ya :)
