These are HotPants by Zaggora. It is a genius product that I wish I had had a few years ago to help me tone up and lose inches. HotPants are specially designed sports shorts that contain bio-ceramic technology, which emits far infrared rays and reflects back the heat naturally generated by the body to deliver warming up of tissue deep below the skin’s surface. They are very comfortable and move with you making you work a little more than normal to move and can be worn anywhere. I have worn them under my clothing to walk to the local store, on my morning walks, while doing laundry and other household chores and even to bed.


This is me in my HotPants (please forgive the dimness and the smudges on the mirror) and I can tell you that I have been pleasantly surprised at the outcome. After a two week trial I have lost 2 inches off my waist and my thighs. I think one of the things that have worked to my benefit is that when I go on my morning walks it is through snow so the added friction of the snow is making me work harder to move. Since I moved to Montana I have been able to drop 20 pounds by being more active and eating healthier and I am only too pleased to add wearing HotPants to my program. Exercising 30 minutes leaves me feeling like I exercised for an hour and I like that! My husband is also loving the change, however he doesn’t want me to lose all my hips ;)

I am looking into buying another pair due to the fact that I am pouring sweat when I come back in and have to let them dry, and hand washing is a tad bit of a pain but I will say that is worth it due to how they are working for me. I LOVE my HotPants and will continue to wear them every chance I get! I recommend you trying them out too.

I was offered the chance to review Zaggora HotPants through Mom Bloggers Club and received the HotPants for my review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% mine and I do not guarantee the same results.

    I had never heard of Hot Pants until I read this. I am going to check them out. And you look great, Jennifer!

  2. Erika says:

    Interesting product I now have to check out.

    Hey Jennifer,

    Thanks fr sharing your thoughts about HotPants. We’ll glad you like it. Could we post your picture on our facebook page?

    So I just completed my 2-week challenge today! I wore my hot pants (size Med) constantly – to bed, to my hot yoga class (sooo hot!), on my treadmill almost every day. I only took them off to wash them. Final results: no change, honestly. I am exactly the same weight (166.4 lbs at starts, 166.2 lbs now), and my measurements are identical (in some cases, up by .5 in.). No noticeable change in the (very visible!) appearance of cellulite. One plus: my skin is baby soft! Great, but probably not worth the money. I don’t expect they’ll keep my post up for long, but for the people who see it – you may want to think twice before buying! :)

    I am 54 years old and only have time to walk the dog and attend a yoga class once or twice a week. I think I eat healthy but also love my desserts. I noticed some midlife cellulite building around the bum and thigh area and after some basic online research, I stumbled on Zaggora hot pants through Groupon in my area. The ad shows a girl jogging in these pants and after some more reading it says these hot pants aid in reducing cellulite so hey, I bought a pair. They took about a month to get them so if you expect them to show up at your door within 7-10 days, they probably won’t unless you pay to expedite them. I slipped them on and I could say they are comfy but girdle tight. By the time you get them on, you actually feel thinner. I’ve been wearing them religiously for the past 10 days and do notice a difference. They don’t call them hot pants for nothing because they do make you sweat around the hips but not to a point that you want to rip them off. My skin does feel smoother so I think it will eventually melt away the cellulite which may take more time. I am considering a second pair because of the laundry issue when you need to wash them. Just knowing you have them on reminds you at the lunch counter and grocery market to eat healthier. I feel different in my skinny jeans and it’s only been 10 days. Zaggora hot pants are worth the try.

    Quick question on the sizing. If I an a U.S. size 6-8, is a size small better or should I get a medium?

  7. El says:

    Kathy, You would be a small. I am a 10-12 normally, and I fit a medium.

  8. Naomi says:

    Does the pants help with belly fat and back fat?

  9. Stephanie says:

    Yes they do help get rid of lower back fat and the “tire/donut” area of your belly. I got my Hot Pants about 3 weeks ago and i have droped 20ibs and 3 inches off my hips and i only wear them to bed and once a week to a workout class. The pants cover your leg from about your mid thigh to half way up your torso depending on how you wear them. All the comments about getting two pairs are true though, they are hard to wash, but so worth the money spent! I am going to be ordering another pair very soon. This is briliant and i really recommend them! Good Luck! :)

  10. Pam says:

    I was wearing my hotpants on a regular basis and to bed some of the time. The laundry issue-I make it a little easier by washing them separately in the washing machine on a delicate setting using woolite as detergent. Then I hang them to dry. It is working that way fantastically. My only problem with them is that I somehow came up with a fungal infection. My doctor said it comes from excess sweat in a confined area-you know what I mean. I am waiting until this clears up then will try them again but will wear for shorter periods of time, and definitely not to bed.

    I hv 2 prs Hot pants(1 in LG & 1 in MED) & just purchased a third pair, this time capri’s; & wanted to relay my personal experience. I’ll be 50 this yr & started planning a trip to Key West this fall as part of my list of “things to do before I die” I am 5’4″ and weigh 200 lbs., started walking soon as the heat wave broke last fall. I lost about 15 lbs, down to 200 thru the fall, about 1/3 of that time after I rec’d Hot Pants. Since I was not seeing the results I wanted, I asked for a gym membership for Christmas I started working out @ LEAST days a week at the gym. I have changed my eating habits, changed the 15 mins of cardio the gym suggested to 60 mins in the first 3 days of joining. I’ve missed a total of 4 days working out in last 11 weeks, ALWAYS wearing my Hot Pants & hv NOT lost any weight since going to gym. I’m sweating like crazt & THEY DOD NOT HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT NOR HAVE I BEEN ABLE TO GET INTO ANY SMALLER CLOTHES. I am terribly discouraged & am still wondering WHY I bought the capri’s???? I LOVE the concept & technology behind them but I am so over all the time (not to mention the 30 min minimum drive I endure everyday and the gas I’m burning up getting back and forth to the gym every day.

  12. Linda says:

    For Those of you who aren’t pleased with the Zoggora hot pants would you be intrested in selling your used but clean ones?

  13. rachel says:

    Sherry, im sorry that your discouraged. I too know the sting of failed weight loss. Maybe consider that you have a thyroid issue? Talk to ur doc. its hard to beleive with the effort ur putting into your weight loss that ur not loosing any. i wish u luck

  14. Shay says:

    Jennifer, nice results. Over these last few months I have met MANY different people who have tried these items. I constantly stay on the Zaggora facebook fan page and even started my own fan page dedicated to JUST swapping out old Zaggora products with new ones. It also allows people to sale new Hotpants ect. if they have an extra pair or a size came in too large or too small. I invite you Jennifer to join us. we post discount codes on the site at least once a week so we never pay full price Bottom line is, they work if you work! They will automatically help you with things such as water weight but if you actually take the time out to work out in them, you will see amazing results! They are one of the best aids to weight loss that I have found. I have all 4 types of Hotpants and i just LOVE them! I wish you continued luck and success with your item.

  15. Jana Moyer says:

    If you are looking for Zaggora Hot pants, there is a groupon for them so that you don’t have to pay full price.

  16. Jen says:


    I’m getting ready to purchase my first pair of Zaggoras, but I have a comfort-related question before I choose the style. Do the Flares,since they cover more surface area, work on more areas than the hot pants? I have just moved to central Florida, so I’m thinking that it is going to be Very hot here in the summer. So, in your opinion, is it possible that I might find it too hot here to wear the flares in the summer? Is it really necessary to get the longer ones if I want maximum benefit? Thanks in advance for your answers..

  17. Hey Jennifer! Great to read your review!! Love to read up on a fellow Zaggora Girl who got great results just like I did!! I lost 5 inchs over the two week challenge.. So happy with that :D

    For anyone thinking about purchasing any of the Zaggora products I urge you to do it! They really are awesome!!

    And if you want to save a little money at the checkout I found a coupon code that gets 10% off! Just use “goodbyecellulite” at the checkout! :D

  18. Bel says:

    What does this “infrared” technology mean? Are those infrared rays safe? I want to buy a groupon deal today, but I do not know if this rays are like getting a sun burn or something like that. What do they do to your body? Does anyone know about this? Thanks

  19. MaryAnn says:

    Hi there. Definately want to try the Hot Pants. Can anyone tell me how to select
    your size when ordering on Groupon? THANKS

  20. Samantha says:

    Personally, I find the “infrared” technology disingenous. What, you mean to say these pants are connected to lasers?? LOL. Seriously, what does that mean?

  21. Pam says:

    I’ve had my 1st pair of hot pants for a couple months and I’m still waiting for them to work. I am wondering if this is just a huge scam to sell as much as this product as quick as possible, before the lawsuits start rolling in and the pants are no more. Anyway, I do enjoy the compression feeling of the pants so I actually bought a 2nd pair which just arrived yesterday. The new Viva, which I knew the sizing was different but I must say are MUCH smaller than I expected. As far as this ‘infrared’ technology, that doesn’t make much sense to me, wouldn’t that get washed out or worn off? For the best description of the fabric, it’s neoprene — wet suit material. Prettied up wet suit material (yellow on the inside) and thicker, but it’s still wet suit material. I’m wondering if you couldn’t get the same ‘results’ much cheaper by buying a bottle of Nivea cellulite reduction cream and buying a $9.00 pair of Golds gym neoprene shorts at the Walmart fitness section. I just have a feeling in a couple years much of America is going to feel scammed. Buy these for the compression, not because you believe you are going to lose 2 sizes by doing nothing.

  22. Jean says:

    I see there is yet another deal through Groupon. Do not waste your money! You will not lose weight or inches with these pants. Pam above is right….they are like wetsuit pants and do make noise.. If you want compression under clothing buy a girdle or spanx; much more comfortable and less conspicuous under clothing. If you want to sweat, buy a sauna suit or neoprene shorts for mch less money. I have given Hotpants 2 really good tries and nothing at all. If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is.

  23. Doreen says:

    Bought my HotPants thru Groupon. They do take awhile to show up. They do make you sweat. I wear them when I go walking and on cooler days under my walking clothes or to keep warm while at the softball field watching my kids. They are comfortable, not as rubbery as other things I have used . I am very active so I haven’t seen a huge reduction but my clothes are definatly feeling like I’m losing inches. I think they are worth the money if you get them thru groupon. I’ll be interested in the new ones with the laser effect, so those of you who bought these let us know?

  24. Leona says:

    Hi Linda:

    I would be interested in selling my zaggora hotpants. I have had mine for two weeks without any changes.


  25. MJ says:

    Hi Linda,

    I am interested in selling my zaggoa hotpants. They have not worked for me.


  26. Connie says:

    Shay (at March 12th) I just tried the and my
    computer says the site has expired. Did you move to another site? My email is
    Also MJ and Linda, who want to sell your hotpants…what size are they, how much are you asking and could you tell me ( at my email address) why you want to sell them? I’m debating the Groupon offer…I’m constantly trying things that I think will help my low back pain with compression. Hoping to hear from any or all of you ladies. Thanks, Connie

  27. Victoria says:

    Hello, after reading a majority of good reviews I just bought the Hot Pants on Groupon, but I wasn’t asked to pick a size… Did anyone else run across this? If so, do they ask later in an email? I’m kind of freaking out because I’m definitely not a one size fits most figure. :(

  28. Victoria says:

    Ahh nevermind, I didn’t look close enough. Found the voucher details. smh.

  29. Sandi says:

    Can’t wait to try these! I just bought a pair of the hot pants and wish they could arrive TODAY! Sure wish I would have found out about these a couple months ago, had a dress i wanted to get into for a wedding…sadly enough, it didn’t happen.
