The history of ShāToBu: Board-certified chiropractor Dr. Denise Perron developed ShāToBu as an “effortless exercise” solution to the fact that many of patients would not consistently perform the exercises she prescribed. Since many of them were already wearing shapewear, it was a natural progression to add resistance bands directly within those garments. The seamless resistance bands force muscles to work harder during natural movement and consequently burn extra calories to help fit a light workout into the day. She conducted research studies in Canada and the U.S.A. that showed that women burned more calories during treadmill exercises that simulated everyday movement when they wore the shapewear. ShāToBu was first officially launched to the marketplace in February 2010. The brand debuted in department stores and on its own e-commerce site.
All original and new styles offer matchless shaping with every movement and support for the tummy, hips, thighs and derriere; new features include a softer, more luxurious fabric for optimal comfort; and shorter leg bands that now reach to mid-thigh for more flexibility with dresses and skirts of different lengths. The collection's new, more reasonable price point makes it accessible to a wider audience of women.
Just having a baby, I need to get back in shape . The ShaToBu is a tummy shaping workout outfit that helps get you toned and helps you burn calories. Here is an informative video talking more about the product.
I've only been using the Shapewear for a couple days, and it's pretty interesting. It's comfortable and you really don't feel it when you have it on. It was a little hard to put on, which is my only complaint. Of course here in Arizona your really can't wear these with your shorts, but during the Summer when I'm wearing my jeans, it's perfect. I've been contemplating however how much weight or calories you can really burn by just wearing a pair of tights. I'm sure my results will not be too drastic, but if I lose or tone just a little bit, then it would be worth it. The tights are made with soft microfiber so it won't itch or irritate your skin. So far, I'm really liking the ShaToBu Shapewear. The tights will run you $38, which might turn some of you off to the idea, but if you're a busy mommy like myself and always on the run, then it might be a good alternative to going to the gym or working out which can be time consuming.
Most ShaToBu Get Fit products are available in sizes 2 -2xand range from $28-$88 @ ShaToBu.com and in departmentand .com stores across the country. Dillards, Bloomingdales and Macys.
Find out more about ShaToBu and if it can work for you on their website. They also carry tanks, tees and other shapewear products. Have any of you ever tried ShaToBu? I'd be curious to see if anyone has seen a weight loss or a drastic change.
