When I bought this, I had rock hard abs but my abdominal skin was a bit loose, due to my and having 2 kids. (I'm 51 now). I must say, I wasn't expecting results. I figured "hey, if it doesn't work, I can always return it!" Well, guess what? It DID work. Results were not huge, they were subtle, but enough to bump my confidence a bit. My abdomen looked smoother and tighter. I didn't continue to purchase due to price, and the results are not permanent (of course). But if I had to wear something that required me to show my abs again, I'd definitely get this for just that occasion. Took about ten days to see results.
