When I was first approached to do a review of ShaToBu I was curious and skeptical at the same time.
What is ShaToBu you ask? ShaToBu – The Workout You Wear – is the revolutionary shaper that helps women shape, tone and burn more calories during everyday activities.
The benefits go beyond ordinary shapewear – ShaToBu instantly gives a sleeker silhouette, but women can also see and feel a difference in their bodies with regular use over time. By incorporating resistance bands right into the garment, muscles work a little harder and more calories are burned during daily activities.
ShaToBu helps women fit a workout into their normal day, while looking and feeling great
Sorry, there are no pics of me actually wearing this…
mainly because while I was brave enough ok with the tankini pics I do not particularly want to put full body in sheer wears up!
Now, at first glance you may think these are just panty hose or a girdle (though I’ve never seen a girdle so can’t say for sure) but this is a heavy duty piece of shapewear (though you can get a run in it if you snag them so watch how you put it on.
The claims are that you can burn up to 12% more calories while doing your every day activities.
I didn’t wear my monitor throughout the day to compare a day that I did wear it with a day I didn’t.
Though, I can say it’s harder to move…I could actually feel the resistance bands so given that I’d have to say that more energy was used to function during the day, which would lead to more calories being burned. With that being said though, this in no way should replace an actual workout or training! Just want to clarify that since I’m sure someone will get the bright idea they can just wear a ShaToBu all day and not have to workout and that’s not the case.
This would be ideal for shaping and giving your caloric burn a little boost every day.
ShaToBu is made of Nylon and Lycra with overall moisture-wicking properties, and a cotton CoolMax gusset, to keep you cool and comfortable. It actually worked too because I wore this out while taking pictures for Paul Bange Roofing in the heat & sun all day and was comfy and not all nasty sweaty!
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and gladly recommend to anyone who wants to wear something underneath their clothes to shape and this has the added bonus of the resistance bands so you do experience some toning if worn regularly.
