These pants do exactly what they say. I feel the resistance when walking around doing basic activities. I wear them on my daily 5 mile walks and wow can I feel the burn when I'm done. +40 are in my future!!
Definitely gives me the resistance and I feel it after my workout.
I absolutely love my resistance pants. They feel comfortable with just enough resistance when performing normal day to day movement. They kind of remind me to move more just by having them on!
Women's Petite +20 Resistance Black Pants
The low review is my experience with the pants. Others will have fantastic experiences. This is not a bad product -- it is just not for me. This is why.
First, the postitive -- I received the wrong size, and return was fast and simple. The replacement got there very fast.
My inseam is 25-1/2". My waist is just under 42." My hips are just about 46" without my belly, 49" with. At the advice of the service department, I ordered a 3X. Because my legs are so short, the pants were actually loose and I got no resistance. The company told me that they could not accommodate my body.
I did ask if they could be tailored, but I guess not.
So, if you have very short legs but are otherwise fat, these may not be for you.
Do not take my one-star review to be anything but my own personal experience. I have recommended these pants to others, including someone who is going into the physical therapy field (he starts his internship in two weeks). But they are not for me.
I bought them hoping for improvement in bone loss, thanks to an article in Women's World on osteoporosis/osteopenia and the Agogie pants.
I will be returning these for a refund.
