Taming the Tummy: It Works Wraps Review

One thing that all brides worry about before their wedding day is looking gorgeous and fitting in their wedding dress.  To accomplish these tasks, a lot of brides diet and work out.

My friend Amber, an It Works Independent Distributor, was telling me about the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator and we both thought it would be a great product for brides to help them lose a couple inches before their wedding day!  The It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator is an all-natural body contouring wrap to firm and tone your trouble spots.



How Does the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator Work?

The directions told me I needed to take 3 measurements before doing the wrap so that I would be able to see my progress.

These are my pre-wrap measurements: 

About an inch above my belly button: 39 inches
At my belly button: 45 inches
At my hips: 49 inches

I found this video on YouTube describing the way to put on your wrap:



The first thing I noticed about the wrap was that it felt very cold and tingly when I put it on.  It made it feel like it was actually working!

The ingredients also smelled really awesome.  Since it's all natural, you don't have to worry about any chemical smells.

These are my measurements immediately after taking off the wrap:

About an inch above my belly button: 38 inches
At my belly button: 44 inches
At my hips: 49 inches

I didn't take my measurements again the next day, but I did about 72 hours later.  There was even more of a change in my measurements!

Measurements 72 hours after taking off the wrap:

About an inch above my belly button: 37 inches
At my belly button: 42 inches
At my hips: 48 inches

So on average, I lost about 2 inches around my stomach, which isn't bad for only a 45 minute wrap!

Here's a picture of my before the wrap and 72 hours after (sorry for the blurriness and the dirty mirror!).  I can notice a little bit of a difference.  My stomach doesn't hang over my yoga pants near as much and my stretch marks also look a little bit lighter.


One thing I recommend is to make sure you drink a ton of water before, during, and after you wrap.  I had a pretty bad headache after I finished wrapping and I think it's due to me not drinking as much water as I should have.



More Information About the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator

One of my favorite things about the wrap is that it can be used on different parts of your body.  So after you're tightened your tummy to your liking, you can cut a wrap in half and then do your thighs!

The information packet I received with the wrap says a full treatment is 4 wraps, so you will see the best results after completing a full treatment.  That doesn't mean you won't receive results after only one wrap though!  Of course eating a sensible dieting and exercising will maximize your results even more!



Final Thoughts

Overall, I think the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator is a great choice for women (and men) trying to lose some inches.  I removed a couple inches with only one wrap, so I can only imagine how many I would lose with a full treatment.

This does not replace dieting and exercising, but it's a great addition!
