Playtex unveils the super faja: shapewear that can help you lose weight, reduce cellulite!

Spanx has been the reigning queen of shapewear for a while, with celebrities constantly praising their power as the #1 reason they look as great as they do on the red carpet. But now Playtex is stepping into the game by unveiling a new slimming and anti-cellulite shapewear they're calling Playtex 'Objective 1 Size Down'.

If it can address some typical problem areas for women, like the tummy, rear end, hips and thighs (the area I hate the most), is it worth it? For now, we won't know until the product comes to the U.S. But I think I would like to try it, at least. It might not be as good as eating healthy to lose weight, but if it can get rid of the last little bits, then that's a mini-miracle I'd like to sign up for.

Would you wear this 'super faja' that promises to help you lose weight and get rid of cellulite for a whole month?
