Does Kymaro (As Seen On TV) Work?

Because I've had a baby recently, I find myself with a little extra tummy these days, complete with "mom-arms" and chubby thighs. But that's OK. I've never had body image issues - my mother never made a peep about our weight or what we looked like while growing up, and we all have rather healthy views when it comes to our bodies. (Thanks mom!) However, even though I don't "hate" the way I look, there are a few outfits I find myself trying on and then putting back because they just don't look as nice with my stomach poking out. I know that if I want to get back to my pre-baby look I'm going to have to exercise and eat right, but with so many items out there claiming to slim me down without the hard work, I was hoping I could cheat a little and look that way a bit sooner!

I already have a nice spandex-like top that hugs me in all over, but it doesn't really do much except make my chest look flat. So I headed out to the store to see if I could find something different. Luckily, +Walmart has a nice selection of As Seen On TV items, and I was able to find something that specifically matched what I was looking for: Kymaro. It's a body shaper, but it also has a cut-out at the top so that your bra stays outside of it. It claimed it would make me look up to 10-20 pounds thinner instantly. It doesn't get any faster than that!

After I got home, I found one of my favorite skin-hugging dresses and put it on without the shaper:

I quickly went and changed into the Kymaro. I thought for sure that it would work as I was putting it on - the thing was squeezing the life out of my thighs as I pulled it up and over. I walked over to the big mirror to look and...! Tadaaa!

Wait, what's that? No, I didn't put the wrong picture up. It just doesn't work. At least, it certainly didn't work for me. I think if you squint you can see where it might have made me slightly slimmer. Sorry, but for me this product was a big dud, and I definitely don't think it's worth the $29.99 price tag. So if you're thinking about getting "thinner instantly", save your money. This is like a get-rich-quick scheme, if it sounds too good to be true: it is. The only way this product will make you slim is by taking your money so that you can't spend it on something like cheeseburgers. So keep your cash and do a few sit-ups for free! Now I'm off to the store to get my money back...


  1. I see a slight change but i definitely think getting your money back is better .This makes me wonder if all the other As Seen On Tv products work .

    Thank you for the photos :)

    Happy February!


    1. I can see what you mean, but I was expecting a change I could really see! For all I know, I happened to be inhaling in one picture and exhaling in the other ;D

  2. im glad that i know it will not work i was thinking about buying this

  3. i agree with you I feel you looked better before you put the slimmer on!

  4. I tried something similar to the Kymaro and was dissatisfied. I wish I had seen your post before I bought mine. Thanks for sharing.
