I looked at two different trimmer belts on Amazon, and went with this one mainly because of the size- it is about 10 inches smaller than the other belt. I'm not skinny by any stretch, but I figured if I bought the larger belt I might have an issue with it staying on properly or being uncomfortable. I'm happy with this Bracoo belt- the velcro makes the belt stay in place, it is easy to put on and comfortable to wear. The first time I wore it I walked about two miles and couldn't tell if I was sweating at all; but when I got home and took the belt off, I was soaking wet! It made me more motivated to go for more walks because it really did give me the appearance of a smaller waistline! I know it's just water weight, but heck, if it motivates me to get out of my house and walk, it's well worth the money. I also bought weights to strap on my ankles and other weights to carry while walking- the combination really does give me a nice workout. I highly recommend this product and would buy again!

After 1.5 weeks of wearing the product, I have already lost 1 inch off my waist. Everything that's said about it in terms of the positive is true. I went from a 33 inch to 32 inch waist in one week of usage. The rubber backing really gets the job done, nothing but pure sweat. The outer covering is really nice and smooth The waist trimmer adheres to your waist, regardless of the size. My waist is curvy like a hour glass so the waist trimmer curves along with it. While working out, the Velcro holds up, there's no slipping off or sliding down or coming apart (like many other velcro adhering products that I've experience), it stays right where you place it.
As you adjust it to your preference it stays in place.
Now depending on what exercise I'm doing at the fitness club, the trimmer may curl as I'm curling my lower bottom, however, as I straighten it straightens (naturally, right) back in place. I don't have to re-adjust it to my waist due to the adherence of the Velcro. The nature of the Velcro is very strong in its adherence properties.
I personally wear it against my body to get the maximum affect, however, as you well now you can wear it over your fitness outfit and allow your clothes to absorb the sweat.
The quality is pretty good for the price (it's not a cheap looking or feeling product) its sturdy and supportive of my lower back, which is very important due to my lower back disc herniation. I have already suggested this product to some of my patients and co-workers, simply because it really is an excellent product. In terms of cleaning it, I only clean the inner side, the rubber with soap and warm water with a towel, nothing fancy.
I do this as soon as I get home because of the salt content in the sweat. Our sweat contains lots of salt so the trimmer is probably designed to eliminate the water and the salt from the body to maintain Homeostasis while working out. A sweat rate of 1 liter per hour would thus cause a salt loss of 27- 40 grams for a 12 hour workout without the trimmer, so you can imagine how much more you can loose with the waist trimmer, just keep taking in your water. So as you see you need to clean the trimmer after each work out because over time the salt will eventually damage the trimmer and you don't want that to happen.
After cleaning just leave it open either flat or over the back of a chair or something like that, rubber side up. Don't believe all the negative responses, its just spoil individuals who expects perfection in everything.
The price is right the product is awesome!
This is not an April Fool :). Just want to say that, I never stop using this product despite the fact that I stop going to the fitness club. I did the Insanity workout for 10weeks, changed my eating habits and lost 20lbs in the 10 weeks. I was not a hugh person from the beginning, however, I felt "fat" weighing in at 154 lbs which is almost proportionate to my height of 5'6".
20 years ago, I weighed 134lbs, so its like I gained a pound a year. Now, I'm back down to 134lbs and have maintain it now going on 3-4 months. No fad diets, just, drink as much water for a total cleanse, eat only serving sizes of your food, Snack on fruit and cut your carbs down to 1/4. You need carbs to burn for fuel. I went back to my size 6 from a size 10. Nothing special, if you can't do the insanity exercise as most people can't write to me and I'm give you exercises to do at home. I only went to the health club to work the muscles in my back because it use to hurt all the time, but the insanity workout help me tremendously. No more health clubs for me Save money. I've always had a small waste, but this waist trimmer helps in all areas of the body, despite the fact that I did loose inches in my waste, its now just a more curvy hour glass :).

To be very honest, I purchased this item after I purchased the McDavid waist trimmer which I did like very much BUT the McDavid waist trimmer began to rip and fray after only a very few wears. I am a bigger girl about size 18 jeans and m/l tops... with large hips and I believe the fraying was caused by having to wrap around my hips... I like to wear two belts at a time so that my upper hips and torso are completely covered... right up under my sports bra..
So when I received the package and opened the Yasco Adjustable Waist Trimmer up I was very, very pleased to see that all the edges were sewed with additional smooth material! I put it on right away and no ripping sounds or frayed edges when I took it off...
It is a snug fit but that only motivates me to lose more inches verses pounds...
The first day I wore it around the house while doing chores and I did sweat a bit... surprise... then I wore it on the treadmill and sweat even more! I went and hugged my hubby after and he was all "gross your sweaty" I was totally thrilled by this that i smooshed his hand to my back so he could feel the sweat more which only caused him to grin and call me gross again... So far I have worn it every day since receiving it and it hasnt ripped or frayed and stays snug... though I can tell Im having to rap it tighter... from possible inches lost but I havent measured... Its a really great feeling when you purchase a product for a great price and it does exactly what it advertises to do... Will be buying from this company again in the future!

Got this for few people as a gift. They wore it while working out and also doing daily routine. I was told that by the time they take it off its soaked. Hey, only after a few weeks and they have already lost a couple of inches off their waist. It seems that results will continue with use. Affordable too!

Seeing great results on abs I have lost 2 inches in one month. I sweat out a lot of water using this method: Rub Albolene makeup remover cream all over your stomach, sides, and back. Next apply Saran wrap, I usually wrap it around 2-3 times. Put on your waist belt and do your workout.
When I take my belt off in the shower it is extremely wet. The Saran wrap has water DRIPPING off like a small puddle! The Albolene helps the skin sweat and by adding the Saran wrap with waist belt. The thermogetic effect heats up in the stomach area. My fat cells are melting away.
I can see muscle development, and my top abs are forming. My muffin top is almost gone. Back fat below bra area small amount almost unnoticeable. I have been working out since December. Although I eat well (mostly clean) and work out 3-5 times a week. My tummy area was not showing results. I had lost 15 pounds but stomach area had not changed.
I feel this has been my holy grail for adding changes to my stomach and back fat. My weight has not changed much this past month but I lost 2 inches on my waist.
Google Albolene and you will see how boxer's have used Albolene to drop water weight fast. There are reviews on Youtube as well. You can apply it to any trouble areas. I applied it to my thighs and applied the Saran wrap. My legs never sweat. I did cardio for 40 minutes on stairmaster. Imagine my surprise when I saw my sweat pants wet all the way around.
I would also add that this belt provides great support and improves your posture.
I am going to continue using the belt with the Albolene cream and Saran wrap. If you are not seeing results at the gym. I would recommend getting this belt. If you want faster results I would add the Albolene cream and Saran wrap (b uy here on Amazon it is always out of stock at the store where I live).
If anyone has questions post here and I will try to answer. I am within 10 pounds of my goal weight. Nowloss has FREE info for workout plans for males and females. Also advises what you should and should not eat. I followed the 90 day plan for a perfect body for females. Shows how to get curves all over and for those interested: trimming the thigh area and building a bigger butt. The best part is the fat burning exercise page. Your abs won't show until your fat level is reduced.
I hope my review has helped someone. We all want to look better!

I used this today for the first time with a body fat reducing cream and I was pouring sweat. Idk if it was the belt or the cream but I'll never use one without the other. I love the feeling I got afterward! I highly recommend this!

I really like this belt. I wear it when I work out and boy does it make you sweat. This is not a get skinny quick belt. I use it mainly for support and to make me sweat just a little more when I work out. The Velcro is very strong and it is easily cleaned with a little bit of mild detergent and a warm rag. There was a slight rubber smell in the beginning but it has dissipated after a couple of uses.

Just received this product today and wore it to the gym. I like that it fits tight on your body. It makes it feel great during a workout. I sweated more during this workout then what I did during any other workout. I will recommend this to anyone. I am 262 pounds and I am a woman and it actually fits around my stomach.
