It seems like only yesterday that Jerry and I were given our Lytess Slim Wear shaping shorts to trial. The 18 days has been and gone, and after wearing the product for the recommended eight hours a day, six continuous days a week for nearly three weeks, we’re now ready to share what we thought with you.
The new range is infused with Caffeine and Shea butter to moisturise and improve skin tone. The brand says that after 18 days you can expect to see a smoothed and shaped silhouette as the technology behind the product works with your body to eliminate toxins and reduce fats creating a slimming effect.
The range comes in a full length legging, a Capri pant and a short. In the beginning we opted for the shorts which were surprisingly light and we were even able to wear them under jeans. We both wore the small to medium size and even though I’m a size 14, I found them comfortable and not at all snug even under my heavier denim.
The shorts are cycling short length so under a knee length skirt they remain well hidden. Under shorter skirts we were flashing a little of our Lytess so we introduced the Capri and leggings into our wardrobes to allow us flexibility when planning an outfit.
The Capri pants are not easy to wear now that there’s a nip in the air but in summer under a dress with sandals or pumps they’ll look great. They are also perfect for the gym as the technology works best when you’re mobile. We both enjoyed teaming the leggings with oversized Autumn knits and dresses and I’ll definitely continue to wear mine throughout the season with winter boots and chunky scarves to stave off the cold. The slight shine on the finish means that I can even pair them with a party dress and heels for leggings with luxe on a Saturday night.
Throughout the trial we kept a close eye on our legs for any signs of improvement. As promised skin was noticeably softer, smoother and delicately moisturised by the Shea butter but it was the slimming effect that we were most amazed by. Jerry lost five centimetres from her hips and thighs and I lost three.
In terms of wearability the items are surprisingly versatile. More importantly though they do deliver on the results front so if you want a comfortable piece of shapewear which you can wear as outerwear for any occasion then these could be the ones for you.
