The benefits go beyond ordinary shape wear. ShaToBu instantly gives a sleeker silhouette, but women can also see and feel a difference in their bodies with regular use over time. By incorporating resistance bands right into the garment, muscles work a little harder and more calories are burned during daily activities.
Independent scientific studies from the University of Virginia show that women who wear ShaToBu during daily activities burn UP TO 12% MORE calories during daily activities like walking or climbing stairs.
Please note: that I'm not saying this should take place of proper diet and exercise. Nothing is better than that for your health, but what’s the harm in a little extra help? So many people I know are trying to lose weight, eat better, tone up, and be in better shape. I myself have lost 90Lbs after my gastric bypass surgery. Now I have the problem of the hanging skin, and this actually helps hide that bulging shape. I am able to wear this for a full 8 hour shift at work, and not have any rolling at the waist and it was incredibly comfortable.
ShaToBu comes in 5 styles: a waist to knee shaper, a high waist to knee shaper (which is what I chose to try) and 3 different styles of tights: the shaping tight, the high waist shaping tight and the footless shaping tight.
Thanks to ShaToBu one lucky reader will get an opportunity to win their very own "Workout you wear" item!
