It’s Terminology Tuesday again and this week in the spotlight is…
the Sauna Suit
Don’t you just love the innovations we meagre human being’s come up with? Anything to lose a kilo or two with the minimum of effort. Such a lazy bunch.
“sauna suit: an exercise suit made of soft flexible vinyl in either a jumpsuit or two piece style with a zip front and knitted cuffs at wrists and ankles. Intended to be worn around the house, it seals in body heat, acting like a steam bath and encouraging weight loss. An innovation of the late 1960’s. Also called an exercise suit. “
WARNING: I STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST GOOGLING THIS TERM. THE MAJORITY OF WHAT I FOUND WAS TASTELESS, BORDERING ON ….. LET’S NOT GO THERE! It was icky let us say. Yuech!
Clearly however these products are still selling. Not just for the 70’s little lady as you might have thought.
Fancy one of these?
Or one for relaxing whilst in the bath. Something wrong there surely.
This lady almost makes it look like a reasonable proposition!
I think I’ll stick to “Pump” and a few extra kilo’s.
