Would You Use This (Bizarre) Body Tape for an “Instant Arm Lift”?
Say you really hate your [INSERT NAME OF BODY PART HERE]. You could diet, exercise, consider plastic surgery (for 1.5 seconds), or buy this body tape that promises to nip and tuck without the, well, nip and tuck …
The As-Seen-on-TV product “Instant Arm Lift” promises to instantly firm and slim your arms (and your legs too, I suppose). Here’s what they say: “Instant Arm Lift works by lifting sagging, flabby upper arms to make them look tighter, firmer and younger. [It’s] easy to apply. Just remove the protective backing from the bottom half of the transparent film and attach this half underneath the back of your arm, beginning at the middle of your arm pit and extending down your arm. Gently lift the sagging tricep straight up by pulling on the tape and then attach the 2nd half of the tape to the back of your shoulder. Smooth out the film several times. That’s all there is to it!”
So basically, you’re wrapping your arm in tape. Got it. OK, but here’s my question: How would anyone want to wear a short sleeved shirt or a tank top when their arms are wrapped up in a plastic wrapper that looks like a sausage casing? Um, embarrassing! How about some bicep curls instead?
