I had my baby 6 weeks ago and I am thinking of purchasing a pair of these to wear when out with the buggy etc. just for a little extra help until I can get back into exercise fully again. Just wondered if anyone has used them and if the claims of helping tone your bum and legs is true?
I did wonder if they were too good to be true! Was just considering as I wear flip flops a lot anyway, and if there are some that can tone my bum, then I'd give them a bash!! My feet are pretty much pre-preg size (now that the awful water retention has gone!).
They are really comfy - like walking on air but I don't reckon they do much for your bum and legs but I do quite a bit of walking anyway. I am always a size 6 unless a shoe is very narrow in which case I would buy a 7 (for width only) and a 6 is absolutely fine for me, infact I found that they stretched a bit so I definitely wouldn't buy a bigger size than I needed. My original pair did come apart at the thong after 3 months but I've returned them and got free replacements.
I heart my fit flops. Bought my first pair last summer and bought a second pair this summer (the light coloured sole got a bit grubby, so I got a dark sole this time. They are very very comfy. I bought my usual size because the next size up was too big. But despite wearing them all the time, I still have a saggy bum and un-toned thighs!
you need to do a search on mn - there are lots of threads on fitflops - and they all pretty much say the same thing - fitflops are massively comfortable and worth the price for that alone ( I wear mine constantly until it just gets too cold), however they dont tone up your legs. Mine are in my normal size - a 7.
