I’ve been curious about these pants ever since I read about them on http://www.thelegroom.blogspot.com/ last year. I’d have to admit that I don’t do that well with other brands of er, support pants. For a start, they look absolutely hideous – there just isn’t another way to say it. Any woman clambering into a pair of beige pants that start somewhere under the boobs and finish just above the knee isn’t going to look stunning. At least, not until you slip into your little black dress and find yourself as pert and curvy as Jessica Rabbit, and then the fight to get into them in the first place seems worthwhile. And a struggle it is. When they first unfurl from the packet, Bio Fir look staggeringly small and they’re made from what feels like industrial elastic so the actual entry point seems like an impossibility. But with some wrangling you can fight your way in. I wouldn’t recommend these on a date – asking your fella to literally wrestle you out of your pants as you hang on to the bed post seems something of a passion killer. Bio Fir come with technology comprising of special material containing crystals that warm up when they come in contact with the skin, which in turn is said to improve circulation and encourage fat cells to melt. To be perfectly honest, the first ever pair of ‘well known brand’ support pants I ever tried made me so hot at an event I had to go outside and pull them down..yes, really! I got so hot I thought I would die….But, despite their heat billing, Bio Fir don’t seem to hold in heat quite so disasterously. They do give amazing support and completely smooth out lumps and bumps but I couldn’t wear them every day so have never been able to put the cellulite claim to the test. And, I’m absolutely certain any of these firming, pull in pants give you indigestion, too – just not sure how your internal organs are supposed to rearrange themselves when being nudged so firmly by compressed flesh. You also need to bear in mind that it takes at least twice as long to go the loo and don’t leave it to the last minute..these things take some pulling down! I think if you pick your pants and parties carefully and wear them on special occasions they certainly will give your figure a boost – but maybe not on the hottest day of the summer…or when you’ve had your full 2 litres of water…
