Why I Prefer Body Magic Over Spanx
I was introduced to the Body Magic Body Shaper by a close friend who signed up to be an independent distributor with the Ardyss Company. I personally do not care for multi-level marketing programs, but I am a sucker for body shapers. I agreed to try the product and give her an honest review of Body Magic.
Allow me to begin by stating that I love firm compression in all my body shaping units. Be it women’s girdles, waist cinchers or full body shapers. Body Magic is a very well-constructed garment. I immediately decided that my money was well spent from that standpoint alone. Putting the piece on was relatively easy for me. I wear body shapers on a regular basis, so I am accustom to the hooks and buttons. Body magic does have more than my other pieces, but the means is justified with the end result in my opinion. If you are new to wearing body re-shaping garments, expect to struggle with putting it on the first few times.
One negative to wearing the shaper is that it lacks hooks in the groin, so going to the bathroom is extremely challenging. If you have a weak bladder, perhaps this may not be the best body shaper for you.
Now construction and assembly aside – the most important question that still needs to be answered is whether or not the Body Shaper makes good on the promises. There are several claims made by Ardyss with regards to this product; you will instantly “lose” 3 dress sizes, lose several inches and experience weight loss.
I have to be upfront and admit that losing weight was not my main objective when I began using the Body Magic, nor was reducing my dress size. However, what I can tell you for certain is that with consistent use of the body shaper, I know longer seem to struggle with water retention weight gain. Like many women, when my weight begins to fluctuate, especially during the type of my menstrual cycle – I carry a lot of water weight in my mid-section. I am normally an hourglass shape, however when I gain weight – it settles in my torso. I wore my Body Magic for two consecutive weeks and then decided to give my body a rest for several days. My body retained its shaped and I wasn’t as effected by water retention like I would normally be.
There are a lot of products that claim to shape or re-shape your body, but I can say – in good conscious, that Body Magic lives up to the hype.
