Have you ever purchased anything on an infomercial? Was it what you expected it to be? Which ones are you interested in purchasing now? Or any that you want but wont get? I was interested in this camisole underwear but I don't think I'll get it since, I don't know what it feels like.

I have ordered some things, not always a good idea, but fairly easy to return. Still I wouldn't recommend it for anyone.

Yeah, the commercials make them seem they are going to save your life but, with all material things, that's not the case. Even if they are legit, it's good to be smart... especially if it's something you wear.. the size may not fit.

I rarely sit through infomercials at all as I find them so over rated almost like over doing it when it comes to the products. I have recalled watching the camisole and undergarment that supposedly women can trim many inches simply by wearing it. I wondered about them also as the firs thing I think about is a girdle and the tightness. Although they say you can return, sometimes I just do not like to go through the hassle.

Man, it was like infomercial marathon during Christmas, haha, but some made me curious. But I agree with you, I don't want to buy especially clothes if I can't event try them on. I don't even buy them online.

No I haven't bought anything off of the television before, but I keep seeing the infomercial for Fushigi ball. It looks really cool. If you've never heard of it before, here is a link to the site: https://www.fushigiball.com/default.aspx?mid=742426 I think it would be awesome.

Yeah, I learned the name of that ball from another discussion on mylot but I've seen people 'performing' it on the streets. Funky thing.
