Zaggora Hotpants launch new products

Zaggora launched Hotpants to the world with huge success – selling over 275,000 pairs within the first five months. The concept is focused on harnessing body heat which stimulates calorie burning and helps to reduce cellulite. Eagerly anticipated by women all over the world, Zaggora has now expanded its range of technology-advanced active wear to give workouts in 2012 more power.

The new range includes ‘Flares’, leggings that target thighs, calves and bottom, ‘Capri Flares’ three quarter length leggings and ‘Nude Hotpants’ which can be worn under garments.

How Zaggora products work:

By increasing perspiration during workouts, the new products follow the same concept as Hotpants, helping you get more out of your time and effort, burning more calories and creating smoother legs.

Best results are seen through exercise as the new products increase perspiration by up to 80 percent. An essential exercise partner for every woman, Zaggora’s new range provides the equivalent of a 60 minute workout in just 30 minutes. Research has shown that for every gram of sweat, you burn half a calorie.

Deemed the celebrity’s ‘secret weapon’, loved by the likes of Tess Daly, The Saturdays, Holly Willoughby, Fearne Cotton, Holly Valance and many more, the super comfortable ‘magic pants’ have become an essential ‘must-have’ accessory for every woman

Available from prices start from £44.99.
