A women's glossy magazine once posed the question: What do you want most, world peace, or a cure for cellulite?
Readers were unequivocal in their response - 70 per cent chose the latter.
Of course, it wasn't an entirely serious survey. But it does hint at how orange-peel thighs can harm a woman's self-confidence.
About 85 per cent of British women aged over 20 suffer the condition.
Fat deposits get trapped and squeezed between the stiffened fibrous bands that connect the skin's tissues, leading to the dreaded puckered effect on upper and outer thighs and buttocks, and also the stomach and arms.
