Amazing Review by Sasha

I have had my HotPants for a little over a year now. I wore them the first few months of my pregnancy when I would work out, and they really kept any unneeded weight off. The day I left the hospital I wore my HotPants and HotTop and haven't stopped since. These pants are so amazing. I am able to wear them under some of my jeans so I can keep it up all day, not just while working out. I just ordered a smaller size. Thank you.

2 pairs and counting! Review by Angela

I have 2 pairs so I can switch between washings. One pair is over a year old and still going strong.

I have 9 Zaggora items in my closet so far and I love every one of them. It is among the best fitness purchases I've ever made.

I went from a size 8 to a 4 just from wearing them during a treadmill or pedal bike workout 20 minutes a day, 3-5 days a week.

I wouldn't have believed they worked had I not experienced it myself. Thank you, Zaggora!

Just Ordered My Second Pair... Review by Michelle

I have only owned my first pair of flares for 3 weeks and the proof is in needing to order the flares in a size smaller already since they are getting loose! I wear my flares while working out and sleeping. I wish I could wear them more but I hand wash them after every workout so they need time to dry. Great product! Can't wait for new products...keep them coming Zaggora!

Visible difference in cellulite Review by kelly

I have owned these for a year but only last week did I wear them to the gym consistently for 5 days. I did a lot of CV and sweated buckets along with drinking loads of water too. I was pretty skeptical but i can honestly say i do notice a difference even after such a short time. The skin on my legs and bum feels a lot smoother and also the cellulite seems to have smoothed a bit. I'm not sure if I've lost anything in measurement but my legs are a bit less dimply so I will continue and hopefully with exercise and healthy eating will be able to have the confidence to get in a bikini in the summer.

BEST EVER INVESTMENT Review by shaz 1968

I love my flares!! I am disabled so i am limited how far i can walk because of the pain! So I wear them a lot i wear them whilst balancing on the Wii... walking my dog, even general household chores! when cooling down, the metabolism is higher than it normally would be. I then peel them off in the shower, rinse them and they are dry for next day! Amazing product cant wait to get a smaller pair!! ..i have lost inches and a stone in weight!! Well worth the money, and great quality too!

Flares are great Review by Liza

I bought them last year in May and I have been wearing them for every work out. These pants are AMAZING. Once you put them on, you immediately start feeling the heat and when you take them off after a work out, you soon realize what a great product these are. They come off drench in sweat!
I recently bought my Flares 2.0 because I need a spare for boot camp classes. Can't wait to try the new version.

But what about the Butt... Review by Anya

Love my flares, but I wish Zaggora could make an option that wouldn't melt my butt away. It would be awesome if they would be available, with the different type of fabric inserted in the buttocks area, like the one used in the breast area on the Hooded body Blazer.

Extremely Happy Review by Gayle

I started my New Years resolution of making 2012 MY years. The years to take care of me. I started with a workout regiment and a healthy diet plan. My daughter mentioned HotPants and suggested that I should try them out. In May 2012 I purchased my first pair. It was a Medium Capri Flares. In Aug 2012 I purchased my second pair, this time a Small size Flares. I've gone from a size 18-20 to a now 8-10. I've lost 71 lbs. The only negative thing I can even say is the stitching around the waistline of my last pair started to come out, slightly. I can't wait to try out the new blazer.

Honestly - Buy them - Review by Anonymous

I started my work out challenge in January (typical NY resolution) and was a complete skeptic! I saw the product on groupon and thought hey why not? Im going to the gym anyways and all these ladies cant be wrong... but even if the product doesnt work for me at least I got a great bargain with my groupon so gave it a try.
At the time, I had to order a large and when it came I was really worried as it made me feel like I was putting on a wet suit it was so tight. I wore sweats overtop of them as I was too shy to walk into a gym with just the pants on, and wowie zowie.
The pants sure did make me just feel like I was working my lower body harder than before and that alone made me super happy to have tried them...

I have had to order a smaller size... actually a size small now (ordered them actually about 6mths into my 'get back to myself' challenge) and proudly wear these to the gym now (and around home and under my jeans to work to just stay warm on cold days since the weather is changing now).

I was the biggest yah right person for this product and honestly, the product does help even just boost your mentality that you're getting closer to your goal. That alone is worth any amount of money IMO and I can't wait to order the blazer

Best ever tried Review by A datisfied customer

Cellulite disappeared within one month. But zaggora needs to bring out a piece for the belly area, or a corset for harms and belly excluding breast area.
Currently i use a gascia for the stomach plus belly areas bought from a sport shop to cover the atra legt uncivered by the flatrs. It works less, but better than nothing. I reccomend product

Can I get an AMEN!! Review by Anonymous

I love my Flares! It is so awsome to see all that sweat.. I feel like my workouts are so much more effective when I wear my flares. My boyfried is super jealous and would love some too. Alas he is 6'5 and 230lbs so we dont think even the largest size would fit him.

WOW! Review by Anonymous

I am a size small, but I've alway been self-conscious about my cellulite, and my butt/ thigh area has always been a challege when toning my body. I've tried the goodbye cellulite stuff from nivea in the past, but didn't have as much as a result as I wanted. I bought a pair of capris to help with cellulite as well as get me confidently fitting into a little black dress again for graduation and previously worn dress pants for interviews (after a year of neglecting the gym due to school, nothing was making it past my thighs!). After 1 week I was comfortable putting it on and after 3 weeks, although still pretty snug, I'm fitting into my dress pants again. Dimples have become less noticable, and my legs are more smooth! The pants are loose around my waist and I'm determined to get them looser below that. I'll change this to 5 stars if my cellulite completely vanishes. Great product! I have recommended these to everyone :-)

Finally something that works. Review by Sara P

I have had my flares for 2 weeks and I love them. I wear them when I teach spin a couple of days a week, ride my bike and walk my dogs. They are great and they do heat up your core. Getting ready to try my second pair.

WOWWWWW!!!!! Sweat dripping down my legs Review by Dawn D

Ok, so I've take the same 12 mile bike ride 3X times a week for years. This time i road with my new hot pants and i truly can believe they worked. I had sweat pouring down my legs and around my waist. Btw I'm only 120lbs and i consider myself to be in good shape. Deffinetly works and i can't wait to ride again with my new pants

Get some! Review by Bex

Bought these a week before my holiday, didnt diet but lost 6lbs (larger size 12 to smaller one!) through wearing for an hour exercising each day - fantastic product. Skin feels very smooth and lumpy bumpy bits not visible.

Melting away with Zaggora Review by Jina

Absolutely love my Zaggora Flares and Hot Pants! I have gone down two pant sizes in two weeks. I wear my Zaggora's for every workout. The cellulite on my upper thighs has practically faded. You don't need to hand wash them. I throw mine inside out in a lingerie bag and wash them on the delicate cycle then allow them to air dry. These pants are definitely worth the investment if you're serious about losing weight and willing to exercise.

XL to M Review by Katerina

Hey, I just wanted you to know I have the flares and hotpants in xl, they fit, and I am an 18 in US size...but not for long girls!!! I will be buying more in smaller size, but I have had them for 2 days, so give me a chance to use them!!!They are fabulous!!! (But you should make a top for midriff and arms)

A bit Leary at first Review by Robin

From an XL to a S - in just a matter of months Review by JUST BUY THEM!

I committed myself to losing weight and getting back in shape as my NY resolution... and I came across these on a groupon deal and after reading all the positive reviews I figured it was worth a shot...

Its now May and after a TON of hard work (and not letting myself slip up) I am about to place my next order... a size SMALL!

If you're not sure or skeptical like I was - no lie they work
(they also work great in an office that seems to have the Air Con cranked even during the winter.. keeps me warm and toasty without having to turn on my heating pad)

Upper Body Review by CopPer

i have been following the amazing hot pants group for quite some time now. After being convinced that yes it really does work, i decided to order one for myself....! with the more innovative products that hot pants is coming up with like flares,hot pants & capri flares.... it would be just SO nice if hot pants can create something for the Upper Body.. (target areas: shoulders, upper back, Biceps and triceps)

I would be the happiest person alive to shape up these areas as i have tried everything...

Best impulse buy EVER! Review by Melissa L.

I bought these on a whim through Groupon and took on the 2 Week Challenge. I lost 5 lbs, 1.5 inches off my thighs, an inch off my waist, and dropped from a size 16 to 14. When they say these work, they mean it! I love bragging to everyone at the office about my Hot Pants, and I'm excited to see my progress for the next 2 weeks and beyond. THANK YOU Zaggora!

Wish they'd been available forty years ago Review by Glenda Parker

The flares (and the Shorts) work sublimely. I've always had a complex about my lumpy legs but not anymore. OK I still don't have the legs of a supermodel, but they're shapelier than they've been for fifty years. I'm not ashamed to admit to my 71 years

They really do work!! Review by JS

Ok, I was a skeptic at first. But I took on the two week with the hot pants shorts and I've lost inches in my legs and thighs. My jeans are fitting very loose in those areas. I recommended this to my sister and now she's also raving about how they really work!

Better than expected! Review by R3d

I've seen similar concepts such as these 'hot' pants before, and they left me sweaty and yucky by the end of the day. Something unique about the zaggoras is that they breathe, so you get the great effect from the 'heat' but without nasty side effects. I wasn't paying much attention to my weight and didn't take any measurements before I started wearing them - but noticed that jeans that used to be too tight seem to fit just fine now! MORE HOT CLOTHES, PLEASE!!

The best thing I ever bought for myself online! Review by Laura Scotti

I originally bought my first Hotpants through groupon. I loved them since I noticed my jeans were getting looser within a weeks time!!! Then saw another promotion through Groupon so I bought the Flares---even better!! I always had big calves too and what a change. I feel wonderful! I wear one of them everyday! I told my mom I'd buy her two for Mother's Day! She ended up telling me to get her extra so she didn't have to wash them so many times like I did. I ended up with an order of SEVEN! I ordered myself an extra pair of Flares and Hotpants too! I only received 3 so far. Waiting for the rest. Can't wait for my Mom to experience what I have-- smoother legs, less cellulite, lost 8 lbs. from these, feel better with them on, naked without them, lol! I love the way they feel in the winter too. They surely kept me warm---while I sweated! Thank you for such a great quality product! No pills to take to lose the weight! No fad diet! I am looking forward to your hoodies! God Bless everyone for a great 2012 with their Zaggora!

Really works! and fast! Review by Ran

So i found the promotion deal on a website and decided to give it a try after carefully reading all the reviews on the website. I am a young small Asian normally wearing US size 2 or 4. I might look slim in other people's eyes, but i always have a lot of belly fat, love handles, and some fat around upper inner thigh, in a word, mid section fat due to sitting around all day. My size 2 pants usually fit in terms of length( sometimes a bit too long) and the lower leg part, but the waist part is always so tight that i can hardly breathe when sitting down. So I bought a pair of Flares and a pair of Hot Pants, both in Small, and began to go jogging for just 30 mins and do a few crunches everyday two weeks ago, and I can already see the difference! I only wear hotpants when working out and did not change my diet at all (I eat relatively pretty healthy with junk food a few times a week). Every morning I wake up knowing i will look slimmer in front of mirror and that feeling rocks!!! I did not measure my waist, but i can tell that my pants are getting loose and my "muffin top" is almost gone! A few cellulites on the back of my upper thigh are gone now too! This product REALLY helps you loose weight much faster! One minor suggestion is that you guys probably wanna have XS soon because people who have S now will need to have XS later to maintain their work out results! Also for people who are small in size generally but still wanna get rid of some extra fat, like me, they might want XS too!

These are the greatest invention ever... Bought my first pair of Flares 3 weeks ago and wear them walking, pilates and to the gym.. they really do work..

I've just purchased my second pair of Flares in the next size down... yipeee... as I can't believe the results in 3 weeks.... Bring on the hot shirt :-))

I was skeptical at first... Review by Annie

When I first heard of these I thought "the secret to losing weight and shaping up is that there is no secret". After receiving my first pair of hot pants, I realized that although the adage holds true, these pants help you achieve much faster results...I now own 3 pairs of the originals and can't wait for the shirt to come out!! I would love a pair of flares but have decided to invest in the shirt...

I bought HotPants in the hopes of losing the last of my stubborn baby weight and improving the appearance of the dreaded cellulite. Two weeks later the results were fantastic! A few months later they were even better.

After having 3 babies and putting on almost 4 stone with each pregnancy, I really thought I’d have a big struggle on my hands to lose the weight and improve the cellulite, but my HotPants made it a breeze.
