It Works Body Wraps

Updated on July 25, 2012

It Works Review

You may have heard of the It Works Body Wrap because this product is spreading like wildfire with claims that you can lose inches. Having been invite to a wrap party I wanted to get more information on the wrap. After googling the wrap itself and reviews it seemed I could only find reviews and information from people who were selling. I wanted a real review, not one from someone profiting from a sell. For me, I was lucky to know a few people who had already used one, so I tried it out. So now here is a review from just a customer.

It Works Body Wrap

The wrap can only be used once and is made of cloth and saturated with natural ingredients. The wrap is said to rid your body of toxins in the area the wrap is placed. You get to decide where to place the wrap, tummy, thighs, arms or hips. The wrap itself is ready to use but you will need a few household items to apply it. If you are going to a party the distributer will provide this and wrap you at the party. Though most people do get wrapped at parties, if you feel uncomfortable with this you can take it home. If you take it home or buy outside of a party, you have to have these items to apply the wrap. You will need rubbing alcohol, plastic wrap, water and depending on where you apply scissors.

Applying the It Works Body Wrap

If you are wrapping yourself then you need to know how.

  • Rub the area you are placing the wrap on with rubbing alcohol. Take three measurements; one above the belly button, one at the belly button and last one below the belly button. If you are wrapping another area still measure three areas.
  • Take the wrap out of the package and unfold it completely. If you are placing on the arms, hips or even thighs you can cut in half to get more area covered with one body wrap. If you are placing on the tummy leave the wrap intact. Place the wrap, with the ingredients to the skin, on the area and smooth out.
  • Once smooth you wrap with the plastic wrap to secure wrap in place. You can use something like an Ace Bandage to secure, but most people already have plastic wrap and it will keep the wrap from sliding very well.
  • You can leave the wrap on anywhere from forty-five minutes to overnight. Bed is best because you are asked to not sweat while wearing the wrap. You will be asked to drink a good bit of water before bed,

After Removing the It Works Body Wrap

After you remove the wrap, you rub in the access and are able to go on about your day. You are to make sure you drink water, as you should anyway. They recommend half of your body weight in ounces of water. So basically just drink as much water as you can, within reason for the next three days. You will measure in the same spots, at twenty-four, forty-eight and seventy-two hours. Though the claim of “I lost nine inches with the It Works Body Wrap” may seem extreme, remember that your total inches lost will be a total of the three spots.

It Works Body Wrap Results

I was wrapped at a party in the tummy area. When the wrap goes on it gets really cold, but it is a very relaxing feeling. After leaving it on overnight, I made sure to drink all of my water. With each measuring time, I was amazed to see that the tape was actually moving. By the end of three days, I had lost a total of seven and a half inches. It has been over a month since and it is still off. It is said that you may gain back those inches if you do not maintain your loss. Maintenance does not have to come in the form of more wraps but rather in the form of healthy eating and regular exercise. After the success with the first wrap I accepted yet another party invitation, with the intention on wrapping my arms. My arms seem to keep flab in the underarm area no matter the amount of exercise I do. When I got there, she suggested we cut the wrap into not two, but four pieces and get my thighs also. I figured why not and get more area for my money. After leaving the wrap on for around 6 hours and followed by three days of drinking lots of water, I measured again. My arm total was a loss of three and a half inches and my thigh total was a loss of five and a half inches. Good results but I think if I had it to do over I would just do the arms with the hope of losing more in that area

It Works Body Wrap Wrap-up

The wrap works but do not think that this will in anyway replace a good diet and exercise. If you do, you will just be throwing money down the drain because of the constant up and down of not maintaining. Using the wraps over and over will get rather pricey. You can get a small discount when ordering through a party and an even larger discount when you sign up as a loyal customer. But fair warning, as a loyal customer you will be buying at least one product a month for three months. Other It Works products are availed to choose from when you go this route. My overall thoughts are that though it works, this is not something that I would pay to do again.

Diet and Exercise are FREE!

      I think everyone is entitled to their own opinions :) The wraps do work great for a booster but then they are also great for those who have hectic days and don't have the time to exercise. Wearing the wrap while sleeping makes it easier to keep that tight, tone look as well as great skin booster as well. I can't wait to wrap my tummy, seeing as I am a mother of six and just gave birth to my youngest last week.

      The "shirts are the same"? One is white and one it blue, so clearly not the same shirt. As for the backgrounds, they are different as well, one is furniture and the other is a door with a robe hanging on it. I'm sorry but if you are going to try to make a point then I would at least look at the pictures first.

      Odd how the background and shirts are the same, any amount of time could have elapsed and the people on here just follow your word. http://www.realself.com/Body-Wrap/reviews if anyone wants a real comparison on whether it works or not.

      I just became a Distributor. I was skeptical at first, as most people are! But after I WRAPPED myself I was a true believer! The WRAPS are a GREAT product and usually takes about 4 WRAPS to reach your desired look. However, you can do more! Just not less then 3 days apart. We also have some AWESOME supplements. They can be used in conjunction. With the WRAPS! Please visit my website at :

      Http://angieryanpayne.myitworks.com for further questions. U can also place an order from that site under "shop". Who doesn't want to get HEALTHIER and feel GREAT!!:)

      Watching what u eat and exercising is important for overall health. Diet and excerside alone did not work for me and many others I know for tightening up excess skin after having a baby and stretchmarks. The wrap does all that along with elimination of cellulite!!!!.. I lost 4.5 inches after first wrap along with tighter skin and decreased appearance of stretchmarks. This is a great product!!!

      Diet and exercise can be free if you need it to be and I agree they are very important. I do think that those you use the wraps for a boost can make it easier but if you can do it without the wraps it will help keep some money in you wallet.

      Diet and exercise r not free!!.. They r very important!!!.. With full schedules daily, the wrap with all other products makes it a bit easier.. It's not costly,and who wouldn't pay an average of a $100 yearly to maintain their body !!!.. It's a great product and that's why I'm a distributor

      Using it with other weight loss and/or healthy lifestlyes is exactly what should be done. But some people in fact do look for quick fixes, they think that wearing the wrap will be the answer, when if you do this and add in no exercise and eat junk you will continue to re-wrap and but not move foreward.

      I think it's wrong to assume someone who wraps is looking for a quick fix. Sometimes people need a little boost, a little motivator. This is the perfect solution. Along any weightloss journey there are plateaus. For me, using the wraps helps keep me motivated on my personal journey. So far, the journey has been awesome. So awesome that I too became a distributor. If anyone is interested in following my journeys in life - http://thepoorgirlsguide.com/blog

      Good review with lots of information! It is good to hear from "just a customer", but after losing 17 inches with my first wrap, I HAD to sign up to sell! I wrote a review as well sharing my experience! They do help get the jump on trimming up! Good luck!

      Using other products to live a healthy life is better than just going for the wraps every couple of weeks, but it still has to be said that all of this could be achieved by eating right and regular exercise instead of forking out loads of money every month.

      This is where we buy ours at www.irischilds.myitworks.com

      It is a better price when you are a loyal customer and the other products like the protein shakes go well with our exercise regimen. Our distributor is big on healthy living so she promoted the Greens (your 8 servings of fruits and veggies a day) and PROfit (protein shake), as well as the wrap.
