I always dream of having a slimmer legs.. I've tried some leg exercise that claim to make my legs slimmer but I gave up after doing it for few days :p due to my laziness and no result seen anyway...
I've always wish that there's a ways that my legs can be slimmer without doing any exercise. A magical cream or magical stocking that I can wear overnight and the next morning my legs will be slimmer. Well, previously I tried bio-essence cream, after applying it day and night for more than 4 weeks (it claims that result can be seen in 28 days), NO RESULT seen..... disappointed :(
My job requires me to stand and walk most of the time that is why everytime when I reach home from work, my leg look fatter (and shorter too due to the illusion). This is due to water retention due to too much salt content in food and also prolonged standing or sitting.
Until recently, I found Medi Stocking (Scholl Qtto)
I saw this ad, and I was so attracted to get this stocking. I was searching for it in all the pharmacies. Unfortunately at that time, it has just launched so not all the pharmacy have it yet. Actually once I saw it I didn't get it immediately because the price is not that cheap ($46 for just pair of stocking that I don't even know if it'll work for me) and also I was considering to buy Leggings ($56). Also meant for nighttime use, Medi Qtto Sleeping Leggings are designed to tone the butt, hips and legs.
Scholl Medi Qtto: So, does it work??? That's the question. This is to be proven through my little 'experiment'
Scholl Medi Qtto: This is the measurement taken at night time. Wasn't working that day so my leg was not too swollen. I took the diameter of the fattest part of my calf.
Scholl Medi Qtto: Time to squeeze myself into it. Honestly, its super super tight and quite hard to wear. My advice, please don't wear this during summer or hot weather or when you are sweaty. The material is quite thick. Before you decided to buy this, make sure you measure the diameter of your ankle, calf and thigh (for leggings) to determine the size. Mine is M.
Scholl Medi Qtto: Look how tight it is. My legs immediately appear slimmer and toner due to its tightness. Now, time to sleep!! and wake up with slimmer legs.... :D
Scholl Medi Qtto: WooWW, I can't believe my leg have shrink 1.5 cm after a good night sleep. But, how long can this measurement be maintained??? Guess, I would have to remove this legging and have a walk for few hours.
Scholl Medi Qtto: Awww....after removing the legging my calf is now 0.5 cm fatter...hmm at least there's still a 1 cm difference compared to before I went to bed.
After few 3 hours of sitting and standing...........
Scholl Medi Qtto: My leg is going back to its original size..........but still 0.5cm slimmer compared to yesterday night though. Its interesting to know that the size of my leg can vary this much through out the day. Guess I should just cut down my salt intake and just wear this legging every night to mantain its size.
(P.S Results may vary in different individual)
Conclusion: Medi Stocking (Scholl Qtto) does make my legs slimmer 0.5cm, but whether or not the result can be maintained it depends on salt intake, daily routine (standing/sitting duration), and health condition. Considering that this hosiery can make my leg slightly slimmer therefore it does work. The fact that I just sleep and not doing any exercise but I woke up with slimmer legs, it's already a BONUS for lazy girls like me.
