Yes, it seems a bit silly to wear these. I admit I only wear them when I'm alone. At first I wore them watching a dvd, but now feel more comfortable in them a can do all my usual chores (dishes, trash, etc).
After a few weeks, I did notice some improbement. Not a lot, but enough to keep me motivatef and using them. After all its only been a few weeks and have had improvement. So what will happen in a few more weeks? More improvement!
