The Scala Bio-Fir tights and leggings zap toxins and fat with in-built thermal crystals which claim to increase blood flow
It sounds just too good to be true – leggings which melt away cellulite. But this is what new hi-tech legwear can apparently do for women simply by heating up their skin with a ‘wonder yarn’ embedded with bio-crystals. Makers of the Scala Bio-Fir leggings and tights claim they could slim hips and thighs by as much as an inch.
In tests, eight in ten women who wore them lost that amount of fat, although they had to wear them for six hours a day for 30 days in a row.
The £15 black leggings – in vogue as the 1980s trend makes a comeback –went on sale at John Lewis on Thursday.
The store, which developed the clothing with Scala, is selling them online from today and expects to break previous sales records.
Assistant buyer Anna Bray said the store has ordered four times as much as usual stock levels. ‘We’re very excited,’ she said. ‘We think they’ll fly off the shelves. There was a massive rush on Thursday.’
The special yarn is hailed as the magic ingredient, emitting heat when it touches the skin, but not enough to be noticed by the wearer.
This stimulates metabolism, improving blood flow and stimulating the body’s lymphatic draining system to ‘melt away’ toxins and fat.
These are turned into liquid and excreted through the liver or kidney.
John Lewis claims the leggings are most effective if worn for six hours a day for a continuous 30 days.
After this, they recommend regular use.
The same material is in Scala’s Bio-Fir knickers, which broke John Lewis records with sales of 25,000 a month after their launch in July.
