These Scala Bio-Fir leggings are hailed as the latest tool for a woman's arsenal in the battle of the bulge: tights that fight cellulite. While these leggings, which were developed with retailer John Lewis, aren't the first that have used cellulite reduction as a primary marketing ploy, their £15 price tag makes Scala Bio-Fir leggings perhaps the first affordable pair.

So how do Scala Bio-Fir leggings work? The gallery above contains the graphic Scala and John Lewis released, but essentially the leggings are outfitted with crystals that, when they come in contact with the skin, emit infrared rays. Such rays increase the body's metabolism, which speeds the process of fat breakdown in the body. Wearing tights for weight loss? I'm still a bit skeptical, but if you try the Scala Bio-Fir leggings and have a good experience, let us know!
