It might help you sweat a little more but it doesn't magically make the fat melt away. This particular product is designed to be worn while working out. It helps shed excess water and heat up your mid-section so you burn more fat in that area. Hope this helps!

its meant to be worn during workouts. There's no magic way of elimintating belly fat. You still have to work out and it really only eliminates water weight cause it make's you produce more sweat in the tummy area while working out.

you can go either way, but this belt will make you sweat quite a bit, as it is meant to help sweat out water weight, so if you wear it over your clothes you will probably have to change them right after working out. I wear mine under my clothes and they have only gotten sweat on them once or twice.

Definitely directly on the skin....the neoprene helps wick the sweat out of your pores and such, if you wear it over clothing the effects wouldn't be as effective I don't think.....

Now granted, I wouldn't recommend wearing it for long periods of time on bare skin, for fear of rashes forming...due to the sweat it's wicking away....

most definitely over a shirt, rubber will deteriorate quickly due to acidic qualities of sweat and on the reverse side it will cause rashes/ blisters for someone who does higher amounts of cardio/core workouts, on the last part, wearing a shirt underneath, will cause more heat and sweat , wich accelerates the process.

I didnt see any directions either but my girlfriend goes to a golds gym and she asked a trainer. Apparently he told her its just while you work out. I put mine on as Im dressing for the gym and when I get home I take it off so total before and after the gym is like 30 minutes or so plus while im working out. I also wipe mine down with a damp wash cloth afterwards so it doesnt smell like gym "funk" afterwards!

you can wear it as long as you want just probably nothing less that 20 minutes so you can feel it working. also if your doing an intense work out like turbo fire or even running it will make that workout even more intense especially if its a core workout. hope this answer was helpful.

First only wear it while working the muscle. If you're not going to exercise the stomach muscles, loose (flabby) skin could result in time. Especially so if after a baby.

I wear it the entire hour I work out. Situps/crunches are part of my routine, if they weren't I wouldn't wear it.

I was wearing mine 10 hours a day....without a problem. But have heard of people experiencing rashes, etc...from using it "too long" - so just wear it until it's no longer comfortable...

The way it works, you may notice irritation after wearing it long periods, since it keeps your body heat locked in....

Obviously, it goes without saying, if it's hurting you, causing rashes, or itching, take it off.

I wear mine until I notice that I am sweating A LOT! You don't want to keep it on too long because of sweat blisters but you should be able to tell when your ready for it to be off. Just me exercising in it for 15-30 minutes makes me sweat so much that I normally will take it off after that amount of time. It is up to you though.

your belt does have to be snug but not to the point of passing out (smile) if you arent really moving then you wont sweat you have to get your body heated up which really takes about 45 minutes to one hour of exercising and getting your heartrate up-try zumba dancing for starters really great results if you put your body into it!!-- and its fun without thinking about exercising. i lost 3 inches with the belt on in 4 months time doing zumba dancing
