I have tried one of the wraps on my tummy area last night ... I wrapped the area in cling wrap (to stop the cream from getting everywhere) and slept with the wrap on all night.

While I don't really notice the area being "smaller" or firmer ... I did notice the main surgery scar in the middle of my tummy did become much less obvious and flatter in appearance.  It hasn't disappeared or anything like that but I am happy with the difference.

Will be interesting to see if the scar change is "permanent" or if it returns to "normal" after a couple of days.

Those who have tried them - did they work?

 So, many many years ago I tried SwissSlim which was a diet combined with going in twice a week for body wraps.  Cold wraps (if you shivered you were using more energy) and warm wraps (to tighten everything up).

Swissslim had a class action against them a few years later, which they lost.

Sounds like these body wraps are a similar hokum.

I had read a bit about them but some of the results just looked too good to be true and they are rather expensive. I have decided to give them a try and have brought a couple of the wraps ... just waiting for them to arrive now.

I am hoping them will firms up some of the saggy areas just a little while I am still dropping the kg's.

Fingers crossed I haven't wasted my money ...

I have used them, I was quite impressed, I wrapped it around my middle and slept with it on all night, the deep heat smell even helped me sleep. It's like every thing else if you believe they work then they will. I only tried it the once lol

not for me but I was morbidly obese, now just obese (on the bmi crappy thing lol). I think if you don't have a lot of weight to lose they maybe ok. I spoke to my beautician and she said for large amts of saggy skin wraps etc don't work, need plastic sugery. if your arms aren't too bad the raps might help there

Did they improve the skin firmness? I have some areas that are a little saggy / baggy ... some results look too good to be true.

I have, you wouldn't want to use them for weight loss unless you only had a little to loss. I have tried them more for my skin

Has anyone tried "It Works" body wraps? I can across them on Pinterest and have read mixed reviews ...
