Lately, we have gotten crankier about seeing advertisements that promise slimness and beauty with neither sweat nor effort. Sorry, we don't buy any of it. In fact, we're sick of all those promises. One of our loyal trend watchers says all of those suspicious promises are the result of a social disease. We all want instant gratification without having to pay the consequences.
So when the press kit from Slimsuit appeared on our desk, we simply were pushed over the edge. Slimsuit, designed by Carol Wior, is a swimsuit that guarantees it will "remove" through compression and redistribution an inch or more from the waist and stomach of the average or full-figured woman. It's even sold with a tape measure so women can check the results.
We have no doubt that this patented swimsuit does what it promises. We admit that we like the idea that our tummies can magically flatten and shrink. And we'd be the first to cheer if someone came up with panty hose that could magically shrink our thighs.
