At home: As a curvy girl, I'm a big believer in "shapewear" undergarments that suck in your smooshy parts. So I was psyched to try Skineez Skincarewear Thigh Slimmers, $68, undershorts with get this anticellulite skin care embedded in the fabric. To see the skin-firming results, you're supposed to wear the shorts every day for four to six weeks. But here's the thing: They lacked that Spanx-like skinnifying effect (I tried a smaller size and they just rode up), so I didn't wear them often enough to get the cellulite results.
Pro treatment: Suddenly Slender, with body-wrap centers nationwide, guarantees you'll lose 10 to 30 total inches off your body with your first wrap (about $200). I'm in! I was measured, wrapped like a mummy in mineral-soaked bandages, then basted with mineral solution as I bounced on a mini trampoline to keep my circulation moving. Very attractive. When I was unwrapped and remeasured, I'd lost 13.5 inches on the spot and 3 pounds by the next morning that seem to be staying off!
