Zaggora Hot Pants Review

Zaggora Hot Pants Review


Update: I’m reviewing the Zaggora 2.0 Hot Pants too. Check out this review here.

I’m sure you have heard about them by now. Zaggora Women’s Hotpants are a HOT item in the press. After seeing the product on Good Morning America, I reached out to Zaggora to see if I might try a pair. I asked for a black pair as I can’t imagine wearing a bright color pant meant to promote sweat. Below the belt sweat stains are not pretty. The marketing materials from Zaggora state (I am summarizing):

During exercise
Studies confirm that exercising in Zaggora Hotwear can increase calorie burn between 6-18% more than traditional exercise clothing depending on fitness level.
After exercise
Study found that if Zaggora HotPants are worn in resting recovery after 30 minutes of exercise, they can lead to a 12.5% increase in energy expenditure in the 30-60 minutes after exercise.

When my Zaggora Hot Pants arrived, I was a bit surprised at how thick the material was. They are similar to that of a wet suit. Initially I thought, “these cannot be comfortable!” Initially, they did feel a bit strange. You have to tug a bit to get them on. Once they were on though, they felt better. Walking around there was a slight “swishing” sound as my thighs rubbed together. I was a bit embarrassed to be too noisy at the gym, but I went anyway.

I took a boot camp class. As I kept moving, the more comfortable the the pants became. After a while, I no longer noticed the pants feeling any different than my other workout pants. Although the material is thick, I did not feel restricted in my movement at all. I think keeping my muscles nice a warm was a good thing on a chilly New England morning. This gym is not heated very well in winter.

After class, I peeled off the pants to see, and feel, the results. I really did need to “peel” them off since my legs were drenched in sweat. It was a bit of a strange feeling, but also kind of cool as I felt like I had really melted fat off my legs. Now I realize that I did not melt anything in one workout, but my legs actually did feel a bit more taught (I suppose from sweating out any excess water). Feeling that wear #1 was a success, I wore my Zaggora Hot Pants for 2 more gym workouts.

After two more days at the gym, I went on vacation and work my Hot Pants running in Florida. I really liked them for running. My legs felt strong and well supported. These pants did not feel like they were slipping down like some can. After a few runs, I felt like the cellulite on my thighs was getting a bit better, which was a bonus since I was obviously wearing a swimsuit quite a bit at the beach too. Now that I am back in New England, I’d like to give them a few more weeks to see if I get even better results. I ran outdoors in the colder weather for the first time this season and the Hot Pants felt great to keep my legs warm (and they were still drenched in sweat after). Have your tried Zaggora? What do you think?

    I loved my hotpants and they did help me loose weight but everytime I wear them I get a terrible itchy rash all over my thighs and stomach that drives me crazy! I still try to wear them but over some capri workout pants. Anyone else have this problem?

  5. Samina says:

    Hi Jenn, I love the great review you have shared in this article. I especially liked the part about- “When my Zaggora Hot Pants arrived, I was a bit surprised at how thick the material was”. Seems like good product and I am going to give it a try and see if I can get some good result. Looking forward to see more product review from you.

  7. Patti says:

    FYI..I bought a brand new pair of zaggora shorts from ebay and got them slightly cheaper than the official zaggora website. Just a suggestion for next time.

      A psychiatrist is a pciyihsan who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelorโ€™s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency pciyihsan for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee.

  8. Jane says:

    I have had the capris since March. Love love love them! Worth the $$.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Given some of the reviews regarding size – how do they run? On their website the size chart indicates that I would be a Med….I’ve never been a med in my life… Did you order based on the size chart and find it to be accurate?

    • Michaela says:

      Elizabeth, be very careful choosing your size. If you try to exchange them for the correct size, you will never get them. It happened to me and I wanted to give you a heads up. Good luck.

  10. Tanya Godsey says:

    I just donned mine for the first time while working out. I went on a 2.5 mile walk/run. My heart rate watch told me I burned 100 more cals than I normally do on the same route. I have sweat running down my legs into my shoes from the bottom of the capris. I’ll be anxious to see the results at the end of 2 weeks!

  11. Dawn says:

    I love mine. The noise they made drove me crazy so I just put another pair of regular workout shorts over them. Problem solved. Also started wearing them at night. 6 he’s won’t hurt.

    • Cinta says:

      (I’m not sure if I’m posting this in the crcoert place as I was unable to post it from the Dashboard.)The type of physician I would like to work with is a gerontologist. A gerontologist specializes in caring for the elderly. I have a fondness for our older population. They built out society and lived in a time that many of us can learn from. I would take great pride in caring for them as they age. In my opinion, working with a doctor that shares my passion and excitement would be the ideal work environment.The type of physician I would not be as excited to work with would be a proctologist. To be completely honest, I just don’t think I have what it takes to be in that environment. It’s important to be professional in any medical environment. I believe my sense of humor would not allow me to be as professional as I would need to be. I would also prefer not to work with ophthalmologist. Several years ago I spent a week with my grandfather at a specialist to have cataracts removed. I found it very difficult to watch the videos of my grandfather’s up coming procedures. It wasn’t difficult caring for my grandfather after surgery, but I must admit the pre-op was an experience that I would not want to assist in on a daily bases.

  12. Tara says:

    Jenn do you have a final review on these pants?

  13. Patti says:

    I bought a brand new pair of the shorts hot pants from ebay for 1/2 the original price and I love them! They are comfortable and make you sweat off the calories. Try them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. You are such a beast. I think that these would motivate me even more.

    pm price pls

    • Balogh says:

      The specialist that I would want to work for would be a Family Practitioner, for a coulpe of reasons. I have had some experience working for a family practice clinic previously and I found that everyday it seemed like patients were coming in with something new. Starting out as a medical assistant for a family practitioner I think would be a great place to start out as a new medical assistant as well since more then likely you would gain a little experience in each area, and would also open the door if I wanted to work for another specialist down the road since in a family practice like setting the medical expertise of individuals varies and would help me grow.One of the specialist I would not want to work for would be a proctologist this practice deals with the colon,rectum, and anus. I think in this setting as a medical assistant I would not really enjoy the job of making sure a patient is prep and ready for a colonoscopy procedure, nor would I want to look at the scope pictures while filling the medical records. If I was to work in this office setting I would need extra incentive to want to do that everyday.

  16. I also use these pants and love them. I have also begun AdvoCare and with my workouts, these pants and my diet, I am loving it. I feel great and look great

  17. Well.. maybe they were too small for you?

    • Tara says:

      It doesn’t matter, even if that were the case, that does not excuse the snotty CS’ unhelpful response.

  18. uneek sayno says:

    I wanted go try this but how i can get it? Pls help

  19. Kathy says:

    Are they safe for insulin dependent diabetics to wear

  20. Wow Jenn, do these pants really help??? Should I recommend them to my GF that is trying to lose weight and slim down???

  21. Rinette says:

    Juste received the hotpants and jacket. Put the pants on, gee they feel good, when to the gym, you sweat in it but you don’t feel wet, Just when for a 9km run this morning at 5 degree. The jacket feel confy, you know your are when inside but it’s not uncomfortable. Love the product, to bad they don’t sell it in Canada ou US. We have to order it from UK. But still have no regret, I will probably order the t-top.

  22. Carla says:

    I love my Zagorra Hotpants! I bought a pair of black medium capri’s when they were on groupon last year, and they are now a bit too large for me (yeah!) but I continue to wear them anyway! I have been dieting for over a year, lost about 35 pounds and started exercising 6 months ago and these really do make you sweat.. It’s not just that you sweat more under the hotpants either, I felt as if my core temperature is higher throughout my workout, thus burning more calories overall.. I have compared the amount of sweating I do in these to other workout clothes and when I wear the hotpants, I definitely feel the burn more! And being an over 50 year old, new to running junky, I find that the heat they generate feels good on my joints. I just ordered a yellow pair in size small and a coola bra top to match… ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Julie Brauneis says:

    I have a pair. Bought them about a year ago. I found them on groupon or something like that so they were discounted.

    I truly don’t know if I’ve lost weight with them. Again – I have only wore them sporatically in the past – but have been wearing them semi-religiously lately. The sweat is truly noticable.

    I love working out in them and when I walk home from work in the winter (under my yoga pants) they make you feel like it’s more of a workout.

    I don’t regret buying them for a minute. Probably going to buy the pink to make me happy when I’m on the ellipcial at home. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I am currently fisnihing up my BA in Child Development and Family Studies and thus far I have only work with children from 2 weeks to adolescent while helping support their families. The Physician that I would want to work under is an Obstetrics (OB) because they are in direct contact with pregnant women and their children during pregnancy. I would choose this particular specialty for a variety of reason such as having the opportunity to see individuals become parent for the first time, seeing how much love is surrounded in the process, being there to help the mothers while there in a vulnerable state. One of my main reasons is because I think that the whole birthing process is fascinating and to be able to be a part of familyโ€™s lives while going through this process, I imagine to be extremely rewarding.A of physician specialty that I would least want to work with would be a psychiatrist. Although I believe that psychiatrist do some spectacular work and help a lot of people through difficult situations I personally believe that this job would be to emotionally draining and overwhelming for me. This makes me question whether or not I would be able to handle it. When I set out to do a job my goal is to do the best that I can and I donโ€™t feel that I could successfully do this job to the best of my ability.

  24. Paulin says:

    WAW!!! I had never heard of these pants. They sound awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Ann says:

    So glad to read your review. I bought a pair after seeing them on Good Morning America. I haven’t worn them yet (which is crazy since they are so pricey!). I’ve been waiting for it to warm up a bit since they are capris. Mornings have been a little too cold, even for these hot pants! ๐Ÿ˜‰ My gym is always too warm for me, so I really don’t want to wear them there since I sweat like a pig anyway when I’m there. I’ll let you know when I finally wear mine on an outdoor run!

  26. I, too, have heard of these but never read any reviews. Thanks for taking the time to review them. I think they may be something I want to try

  27. I’ve considered reviewing these too! thanks for the review! looks interesting!

  28. Diana Padlisham says:
