Sauna Suits Review - Does This Fitness Apparel Really Work? Are adverse effects and user complaints deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 4.5 / 5.0

sauna-suits-product-imageIf you want the bottom line on Sauna Suits, give me just two minutes of your time. We created an in-depth review, examining the side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and customer-service quality. Furthermore, we scrutinized plenty of user comments and customer reviews posted all over the web. We then compressed all of the information we found to give you the important facts.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Sauna Suits with a proven testosterone booster such as Pronabolin for better results.

What You Need To Know

Sauna Suits are basically rubber or Neoprene shirts, jackets and pants that are worn during workouts in order to increase perspiration. Sometimes these suits look like a jogging outfit, but there are also a variety of tops, body shapers, tank tops and slimming belts available today. Both women and men use Sauna Suits to increase the intensity of workouts. These suits are often used by professional athletes. Furthermore, they are claimed to flush toxins from the body, help you burn off more calories and increase the body’s temperature to take your workout to the next level. Sauna Suits are available online from various brands, and they often sell for $10 to $90.

We are not sure how long Sauna Suits have been available, but you have many to select from at this point. These suits come in all sizes and there are some positive comments posted on the web, but read on…

Adverse Effects – Concerning?

“We were able to find all sorts of customer reviews posted on the web for Sauna Suits. Unfortunately a number of people complained of adverse effects such as faintness, nausea and dehydration,” says our Research Editor.

One user stated, “The worst thing you can ever do to your body during a workout is to lose more water than necessary. So what you’re going to accomplish with this “sweat” shirt is severe dehydration. If you get your body dehydrated enough – you’re gonna end up in an emergency room.”

“These are bad, bad, bad…bad!!! No, you do not burn more calories, you just sweat a little more and risk dehydration. These things are dangerous,” said anther person.

Too Many User Complaints

There are plenty of negative customer reviews posted online regarding Sauna Suits. One user commented, “These suits smell awful. I just can’t get past the horrible smell!”

Another customer said, “Not healthy! Too much sweating just causes me to get dehydrated and faint.”

The intensive research we’ve done has shown if there is a particular aspect of a fitness product or supplement that is especially troublesome (a painful/difficult exercise routine, adverse effects, too many user complaints) the chances of long-term results are slim. So, if Sauna Suits do lead to a lot of customer complaints, this could be a serious problem.

The Science – Any?

We did not find any specific science for Sauna Suits. However, it’s clear that this fitness apparel can help you sweat more profusely. Naturally this can make your exercise session more intense. Then again, we at DietSpotlight prefer to see some documented clinical research that supports the fitness product we’re reviewing.

The Bottom Line: Do Sauna Suits Work?

So, should you buy a Sauna Suit? Well, we like that these suits are easy to come by and there are some positive comments posted online. Then again, we have some reservations about Sauna Suits because they are not backed by solid science. Furthermore, we’re concerned about the dangerous adverse effects and numerous customer complaints.

If you really want to improve your workouts, we suggest a product that is backed by real science, does not cause dangerous adverse effects and is supported by plenty of positive user reviews.

Among the best products we’ve found in 2015 is one called Pronabolin. This supplement uses a proprietary blend of nine key ingredients, which are clinically proven to help you increase vitality, enhance strength and even elevate testosterone levels. There’s no talk of adverse side effects and comments all around the internet show people are seeing excellent results.

Also, the makers of Pronabolin are so positive about their product they’re offering every customer a 120-day money-back guarantee and multiple-bottle discounts.

The sauna suits of old were large, bulky, plastic suits commonly used by wrestlers and other athletes. Today, sauna suits from Kutting Weight are available in trendy styles and thinner fabrics so you get all the benefits without looking like you’re about to go for a jog in the rain. The neoprene suits are thin, flexible and form fitting. The suit is designed to be worn as workout clothing and care is simple with a little water.

List of Ingredients

Neoprene suit.

Product Features

The idea behind sauna suits is to increase body temperature and thus increase sweating. According to Kutting Weight, sauna suits can increase metabolism, remove toxins from the body and help increase the number of calories you burn. These benefits lead to one thing – weight loss. The science behind sauna suits is simple – as body temperature increases the body must work harder to cool the body. Increased sweat loss will result in loss of water weight, but that is not the only weight loss that occurs. With increased sweating comes increased calorie burn and a boost to weight loss.

Sauna suits are ideal for just about every dieter – though dieters with medical conditions should consult with a physician before trying sauna suits. There are not special exercises to learn or gym memberships to pay for – though you can wear your sauna suit to the gym to increase the results from your daily workout.

Sauna suits from Kutting Weight are sold as one-piece suits, but this is not the only option. You can create your own sauna suit from the mix and match pieces available from the catalog. You can pair of sauna suit capris with a sauna suit long-sleeve shirt and achieve the same benefits as you do with the traditional sauna suit. There’s even a sauna suit hat to top off your outfit.

    There is a sweat wuit that you can get that has a “base layer” so that it isn’t so icky!

    It’s called “speedy fresh” technology. (I have copied this next bit from there website!) “Speedy Fresh” clothing technology has excellent moisture vapour transmission ability and dries quickly when getting wet. Therefore as you sweat the base layer transfers your sweat to the outer layer of the fabric ensuring you remain dry and comfortable as you exercise.

    Big HURT

    I lost 35lbs in 30 days by reducing my calorie intake to under 2000/day and working out atleast 3 times a week on an elliptical with my sauna suit on. I know there’s a lot of controversy about sauna suits and I even lost a friend years ago in high school that died from dehydration with a makeshift sauna suit but if done correctly I’d say it helps by leaps and bounds!

    What did you eat

    Sauna suits works, as long as its part of a balanced program. For example, I use it primarily to get rid of toxins, which for those of us that are overweight, its a godsend. I use it when I run, and have improved my run time length on a treadmill at 4mph from 2 minutes to 4, and then 10 minutes in a matter of a week, and can run at 6 miles/hr for 3 minutes at a time now, which for those of us that are struggling with running, knows what an improvement that is. Make sure you have plenty of hydration ready, as the first day I used it I didn’t drink much water and was dehydrated for a day, VERY bad for your health! Since then I drink about 20oz of water while I run, you should adjust this amount to your body weight and figure out what works for you, bigger/fatter you are, more water you should drink, flush out those disgusting toxin buildups in your body!!! Also, don’t use it outside if the temperature is greater than 75 degrees fahrenheit, as you’ll suffer from heat strokes. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks now, and have gone from 315 to 287 (not making this up, wife is tracking my progress and can’t be any prouder of me), and I feel like a million bucks, and best of all, my skin is clearing up, no more painful cysts on my back or buttocks, none of the crap acne stuff worked but this did!!! One thing I did notice is that my stomach has shrunk, I don’t know if its a direct result of using the sauna suit, but I can tell you working out alone never caused that to happen. I had problems putting away a regular burrito at your local taqueria, I felt like a stuffed chicken, never again. Now I stop at half the amount I used to eat, and its really working out for me. When I do get hungry between meals I put away a banana or orange. I’ve also cut out all caffine and replaced sugars with honey, and no alcohol (it slows down your metabolism, the enemy of all that wants to lose weight!) until I reach my ideal body weight of 195. Stay strong people, you can do it!!!



    Thats awsome! so now its july 7, 2011 – how much do u weigh now?

    Yes a suana suit works!!! I use to put the full suit on and go running in the texas heat it was very dangerous but i had to lose weight fast. I went from 156 to 120 in 2mths.



    Is there something you can just put around your waist?



    @Becca yes there are fitness belts that you can wear instead of wearing the full saund suit. im not sure what stores are around you but i have bought them from Marshalls, Walmart and most fitness stores sale them as well. You can also purchase them online.



    I bought a fitness belt from 99cents only & the suana suit at walmart for $7 and the 8bucks have made me very happy & slim :) I use it around the house while I’m cleaning Put on some music &dance away &boy is it a sweaty workout & I feel/see the differance I went from 165 to 120

  • 16

    What else did you do to loose the 30lbs in 45 days? Was it just the sauna suit…? Please share your secrets!

    Sauna suits ARE great! It’s not about how much you lose, it’s about the fact that we are helping toxins escape by sweating and replacing with clean water. I recommend this for people who just quit smoking, drugs, etc. This suits help to remove toxins a lot faster than just what the body can do. The body eliminates toxins thru feces, urine, phlegm and sweat. Working up a really good sweat is key for taking all the bad things out of one’s body that could lead to relapse of nasty habits. I fast for 21 days in January and these suits really help me get rid of impurities that build up in my body from the environment. Sauna suits,purified water, lemon, garlic and enemas are highly important to people who need to rid their body of toxins. Not necessary for every day use.



    Yes can you share what else you did to lose the weight?



    I am very overweight and have used a sauna suit for the past two years. Because of my weight, I retain water. Without the sauna suit, i lost about 20 lbs and 2 inches around my waist. With the sauna suit and those waist things that make you sweat i lost 15 inches overall waist, hips, breasts arms and 60 pounds. I also worked out 5 days a week. Try it be smart, listen to your body. if you get tired walk out. Do a little bit at a time but it does work.

    I see physical, emotional, and psychological reasons for using the suit. as a women, seeing the weight go quickly is instant gratification for working out. The more I lose, the more I watch what I eat and continue to work out with my little sweat suit. I wish you the best!!!!


  • 19

    I recently bought a sauna suit. I sweated so much when i ran, however by the end of the day i ended up weighing the same as i did in the morning.

    Actually, sauna suits do work. Your metabolism increases in order to produce sweat and induce vascular dilation in an effort to cool your body off. Yes, you do lose a lot of water weight, but you burn more calories due to the extra heat.


  • 21

    I have used the sauna suit and I guess for some it didn’t let them lose weight…I don’t care what anybody says, me and my friend HAVE lost weight by walking 4 days a week with the shirty and pants boy it really does work!!! We walk around my daughters school track like 5 times and then chill Fri;Sar;Sun…


  • 22

    i started using my sauna suit on saturday. I walk about 3miles every afternoon with it on and i feel like im going to burn up in it… but at the same time i feel happy cause i would never sweat this much if i were to do the same walk without the suit. Today is Tuesday only 3 days after using the suit and i have already lost 6 pounds! yay!



    All you do is walk? the reason I ask is because I walk six miles a day and I have used mine twice. I have not weighed yet but I will tomorrow. Wish me luck!



    So did you loose weight or not?


  • 23

    I used a sauna suit and lost a lot of weight over the course of 6months



    how much weight did you lose?

    Blaise Collins

    These are bad, bad, bad…bad!!! Yes, they work for boxers and… well that’s it. They work for boxers to lose weight for weigh-in and the weight comes right back. No, you do not burn more calories, you just sweat a little more and risk dehydration.
    In fact, you actually burn more calories in the cold. Think about it, body cools off by sweating (no calories used). Body heats up via muscle contractions (shivers, many calories used). Please people, be smart. These things are dangerous.
    Blaise Collins, BS, CES



    Well, i used the sauna suit on a daily basis and it doesnt bother me.. i lose close to 10-15 pounds a week and gain it back on weekends.. i dont notice a difference in my body so i think its all in what the user thinks..



    Thank you I’ve been trying to find info on this. I’ve worn it twice and got off my treadmill like I had been swimming in a pool. Makes sense my dad is as skinny as a rail and he’s always freezing.

    I was just wondering if I would lose weight because I have read some stuff on these and they say your weight will come back is that true because if it is then what’s the piont of wearing it



    The reason why people wear them are for “weigh in’s”. Boxers (kick boxers) wear them to make it into their weight class. If you wear a sauna suit, drop the weight, weigh in less then normal then the next you fight you might have an additional 5-10lbs behind your punches. Or in my case have been in a “biggest loser” competition with my job and the final weigh in is approaching. I’ll wear the sauna suit to drop my extra water weight (which i gained from my period this week)



    are you the girl that lives at avalon in shrewsbury that we met at the gym. haha we bought out suits because you liked it so much! hahaha


  • 29

    When you work out are you supposed to wear just the sauna suit or wear the suit over workout clothes?



    just the suit, they actually fill with pools of sweat pretty quickly



    u can do whatever is more comfortable
    i wear mine under a light jacket and under workout pants
    u cant even tell



    u can do it either way i feel silly wearing it by itself so i cover in a very light jacket and pants u cant tell its not bulky or anything if u do it right
