Does it Work? - Bed Bath and Beyond - "Tummy Tuck"

I feel absolutely foolish asking this question, though I am going to ask it anyway. I am not normally a sucker for fads, but this thing at Bed Bath and Beyond is begging me to drop $40 on it. It is called "Tummy Tuck" (i just laughed out loud thinking about the concept), but I cannot divert my mind from it! I have a serious belly overhang (what I shamefully refer to as my skin skirt) so this thing is attractive to me. I guess part of my infatuation is that I feel like even if its magical lotion doesn't resolve anything, I like the idea of wrapping my belly. I had a c-section over a year ago and I wore that support wrap for a long time, basically until the thing fell apart.

Has anyone bought this, for either the wrap or the full effect? Did it help hold you in? I wondered if it would serve as a reminder to hold in my gut which might help me unknowingly work my abs? If not, is there anything else like this you could recommend?

Thanks! XOXO

I don't know about the Tummy Tuck thing, but have you considered getting some shapewear? I think I have this (if not this exact one, something very similar):

It really does make you feel firmer while it's on, but it's not really uncomfortable. I usually tuck it into my pants or jeans to make sure it won't roll up. I definitely feel more confident when I'm wearing this!

I have not seen these tank tops at target, so Thank you! I wonder how the corset one feels on? I need all the support I can get. I am all belly..... I did try some shapewear once. I bought a fairly expensive pair of spanx, the one with the very high waist with the long shorts. Holy beejesus. It was like a 20 minute work out getting that horrendous thing on!! I was sweating and breathing hard. Once I got it on, I held my bladder all day and swore I would never wear that thing again!! That's why I want something that just goes around the waist. Anything with pants is not for me! I like this idea, both the tank tops and the corset. Thanks!!

I haven't tried the BB&B Tummy Tuck wrap, although I have also been intrigued every time I see it.

I HAVE tried the Ultimate Body Contour applicators from the It Works! Global company (also referred to by customers as "Skinny Wraps"). I personally haven't experienced earth shattering results, but I know people that have. I have experienced results that I'm happy with. Tighter, smoother skin and a noticeable decrease in the muffin hanging over my pants.
