hot pantsIt may sound like science fiction, but a company called Zaggora released their ‘hot pants’ in 2011. They sold close to 300,00 pairs in less than five months. They claim that these pants hold in heat; this causes the wearer to lose weight as well as cellulite. They increase sweat by 80%, and they can be worn under your street clothes to increase weight loss (other than when exercising).

Zaggora has just released additional workout apparel products that are also flying off the shelves. The attire targets specific problem areas. They offer a new pair of pants called ‘flares’ that are designed to target the hips, thighs, and calves. There are also ‘capri flares’ that hit just below the knees, and the popular ‘nude hot pants,’ that are for wearing under street wear without showing. They have just come out with several choices in tops that are supposed to have the same effect as the bottoms.

The claim is that by wearing these garments you can achieve a full 60 minute workout in only 30 minutes. This is due to the increased perspiration. Studies do show that when you sweat a gram of perspiration, you are burning one half a calorie. Many celebrities swear by their workout wear to help keep them in top shape.

Not only are these shorts and tops alleged to help drop pounds and reduce cellulite, they are supposed to speed up your metabolism after a workout by almost 25%, as well as give you nearly 20% more energy afterwards. Because they hold heat on your body, your core temperature rises by seven degrees which also help to burn calories. These findings are the result of a study at the University of Brighton in Hastings, England.

Zaggora’s workout wear is not cheap; the tops average $40 for a simple tank, and the bottoms can run as high as $120. If they deliver as promised, perhaps that can warrant paying the price for exercise clothing.
