Pant-emonium! store orders an extra 40,000 cellulite undies Pant-emonium! store orders an extra 40,000 cellulite undiesTHEY are the fat-busting knickers Bridget Jones would die for. And they are back in John Lewis today. When the department store unveiled the Scala Bio-Fir Anti-Cellulite pants in May, staff were bundled over in the rush. The company website sold out within the hour while the Oxford Street branch ran out of supplies on the first day. On sale for 25, the knickers were soon changing hands on eBay for up to 60. The pants promise to give wearers a bet- ter bottom and banish the dreaded orange peel effect. And women insist that, unlike other supposed cures, these pants work. They are only available in John Lewis, which says the knickers have been its fastest selling lingerie range in the past decade. The company has ordered 40,000 of the pants to meet demand from fans -- said to include Sienna Miller, who has admit- ted to having cellulite. More than 4,000 women signed up for an email alert that they are back in shops, suggesting the latest batch could also sell out fast. The fabric contains bio-crystals that warm up on contact with skin. This is said to melt away fat cells which are then excreted by the liver. Research showed that four out of five women who wore the knickers every day for a month lost inches from their stomach, hips and thighs. Cellulite was also reduced. The effects are said to last up to 12 months, provided wearers exercise and eat healthily. This product has created a real phe- nomenon among women, with customers buying up to 10 pairs each, said Helen Spencer, John Lewiss lingerie buyer. First to buy today was Kristen Makin, 32, who said: A friend told me they made her look a dress size smaller and created a waistline. I am going to be a bridesmaid so I wanted to streamline my dress. It wouldnt hurt to kill off a bit of cellulite too. ...not thatKim needsthem HERES one lady who wont be needing any anti-cellulite pants -- although she may need some help getting dressed.
