Who Needs Exercise? Let Your Underwear Do the Walking

Living 2010/05/25 18:24:19
A Japanese company has just introduced a pair of underwear that claims to burn fat.

According to the manufacturer, Wacoal’s “Cross Walker” underwear, made for both men and women, is designed with a revolutionary cross structure built into the fabric that will stimulate the muscles of the thighs, and spread it with a natural stride.”

In other words, all you have to do is walk around and the magic undies will do the rest. Worried about that fourth slice of pizza you indulged in last night? No problem. Just slide on your new underwear and walk around the living room a couple of times.

Wacoal also states that Cross Walker underwear is designed with something called hip-up. “The fibers of the underwear sculpt and lift from the hips down, creating a more youthful silhouette. Sort of a girdle but not an actual girdle per se.”

We are awaiting the t-shirt that makes the beer belly go away.

Do you think it’s possible for underwear to burn fat? Would you be willing to try them?

    They have shoes that are supposed to tighten up your butt too. There is no substitute for proper diet and exercise, but there are lots of clever salesmen out there who tell you what you want to believe. supposed tighten butt substitute proper diet exercise lots clever salesmen

    That girl has no muscle... these underwear are created to TONE muscle, not lose it.
  • Ash-the... SeaSparkzz 2010/06/01 14:39:57
    I'm not talking about the underwear, I just meant in general.
    What happened to looking like this?\ talking underwear meant general

    The average man actually prefers a healthy sized woman, but girls aren't getting their information from real men, they're getting it from magazines and movies. TV has a tendency to make the 'average' sized women undesirable by the characters. It's really rather annoying.

    I'm sure the average man likes a healthy sized woman but being a woman interested in losing a little of my excess weight is the reason I decided to look at all this. I'm a shift worker so I can't get to the gym during the regular hours of business very often and I've struggled to maintain a reasonable weight since I was a little kid. I like being me and I DON'T WANT to take short cuts but like a lot of people I need to lose some weight (and I do stress some not all). I beleive in 'no beauty without pain' but I won't discredit something that may one day work.

    Every1 in my family has a slow motabolism. I work as a housekeeper so I do more walking in a day than the average person and STILL have trouble losing the extra weight. By medical standards I am overweight so If something like this actually worked I would buy it in a second becuase the idea that I can burn more fat just by doing what I am already is thrilling. I'm as skeptical as the next person but I hope that one day this does work because it can't do much more harm than parting some people from money that might be spent on other 'miracle weight loss products'.
  • Shilo 2010/05/27 03:34:11
    I'd rather have a pair that injects fat directly into my ass. I'm not as curvy as I'd like to be.
  • SeaSparkzz 2010/05/27 03:12:03
    I do think it is possible, all muscles need is stimulation, and I don't have much doubt that the right kind of pressure could give that extra stimulation. They even look like they give pressure to certain areas for the purpose. muscles stimulation doubt pressure extra stimulation pressure areas purpose
    They are NOT claiming you don't have to exercise... if walking is required, then that IS exercise. (Want to bash on something that advertises weight loss without exercise, look into the Contour Ab Belt.)
    These underwear don't sound that far from the idea of the Sketchers Shape-ups, providing a posture that tones your muscles more than normal shoes when you walk.
    I would need to do more research, but I am not discounting the idea that I may some day try them.
  • sugarbuzz SeaSparkzz 2010/05/27 11:01:37
    My first thought was that it probably just gives you a permanent wedgie! permanent wedgie
  • SeaSparkzz sugarbuzz 2010/05/29 22:48:15
    It looks like they grip onto the thighs too much to even make that a probability.

    My luck, one wrong move and my britches would be in a bundle!!

    You know this sort of thing rates right up there with the selling of indulgences in the Middle Ages. No need to take responsibility for your actions, just pay your money and be saved from all logical consequences.
  • troy82 ... shamgar 2010/05/27 02:16:57
    troy82 - Christ is returning, Today!
    the catholic church still includes this practice....read the forward of a catholic bible.....they can "earn" partial and full ones by reading the bible - performing "works"! ...sad but true....I used to be catholic, have no idea where I can cash them in, I know Jesus has no need for them!
  • shamgar troy82 ... 2010/05/27 02:57:35
    I was not aware that was still practiced. You might look up supererogation as practiced by Catholicism in the middle ages. Very eye opening.
  • troy82 ... shamgar 2010/05/27 10:57:53
    troy82 - Christ is returning, Today!
    Though I have never heard the term, that too is alive and well within the rcc to date - the "holy sacrament" are not only over and above God's Word, but required for salvation,to get out of purgatory etc - they just dont call it supererogation anymore! I would really like to cash in all my rcc indulgences, but dont know of a rcc bank in my part of the world....lol!

    No, they won't work but that won't stop the millions of idiots that will buy a pair.
