About Me

Hi I am 27 years old, female, Singaporean PR, lived here all my life, malaysia citizen. Just because Dorra hails from Malaysia, doesn’t mean I will cover up “my own kind”.

Since I was 11 years old, I have had a tummy I can never get rid of. It is 2 layers. Because when the fat tummy started growing, I pulled my pants up, thinking the pants would suppress the fats from bulging out. But the fats just grew and seperated into upper and lower tummy. So the upper and lower is very obviously seperated by a line of folds.

I have been going to Dorra since 2011 August/September, after I received the NDP voucher promoting of the $10 trial service. I have to admit they were rather convincing and rather hard-sell, as none of the other slimming centres i went to manage to get me to sign a package. Being at desperate ends, and wanting to solve my problem too, I took up a package with them, believing the sessions they offer me would solve my problem once and for all. Read more here.

While this blog was set up as a personal review and requires the authenticity of a real person, I also wish to keep my identity a secret because:
1. not many people know that I went slimming
2. there is still a stigma with regards to going to slimming, such as my own family.
3. stigma with slimming with even my friends and people around me.
4. its not that im pro-slimming, i have tried all means and methods such as exercise and a good diet, but nothing seems to work for the tummy area. every other part of my body slimmed down except for the tummy, it seemed to have very stubborn fats.

    thanks goodness i’ve found your blog. Dorra sucks to the max. The staff is inexperienced, press-selling, disturbing and seriously inconsiderate. Luckily i wasn’t persuaded to folk out my money for them.

    Hi, may I know which outlet u all went before? I just signed up a package with them yesterday (14 Oct 2012), with the price of $1600+GST for 20 visits (total of 40 treatments). The outlet I went is in Lot One. I dont know wether I have been cheated or not but I have lost confident with them after review all the comments here. I had paid the first payment of $321 yesterday during my first visit. Balance will be pay instalment $139.10 for 10 months.

    Me too… First, they ask me to sign up bye bye fat treatment cost me RM6k to RM7k.. And ask me to buy essence drink… Cost another few thousand… Just last few week, they told me I need water retention treament, and they shown me all picture n result. Then, i thought is true. Then, i signed up retention treatment for another RM6k for 20 times.
    Today, i went for my treatment n the other consultant ask me to sign up for limph nodes treament. Cos my fat cannit flush out! Come on, i am just deliver baby in last 3 mths n i am only 51 kg with 157cm. Am i that fat?
    I rejected this time, cos i am angry of the information provided by them!
    The consutant said this package is only 20 times for RM6500! And i insist dunt want, and i told them my credit limit not enough.. One of consultant said ti me, why not you out deposit of like RM1000 first….what is this?
    I still have about 20 plus treament with them… I thought the consultant said with water treatment n bye bye fat treament enough to reduce my tummy size… What a fool!

    looks like many people getting “cheated” by Dorra, why not take action to report to Police ? or at least , having press conferences ?

    Slimming Sanctuary in Malaysia service is not as promising as compare with the first sign up. They just want your money and when they have more and more clients, they will not not attend to you and just feel that you appointment is ignoring. The place / room for treatment is not as expecting as when you saw in their flyers and advertisement. There is also kind of smell from the room that cannot make you relax. Kind of smelly thingy from the unwashed cloth. Gosh!!! So why waste your money on this kind of center ? Cheater and liars when come to consultation.

      Dear friends, I had a very unfavorable experience with Dorra. I received 2 free trials from 98.7 and went to plaza sing for my consultation. It starts out with a friendly conversation about my body, then they start to criticize my flaws and start hinting about cellulite which every woman is afraid of. They then tried to persuade me to buy the booster. SAY NO. I then went to do my treatment, and the lady said she managed to sneak some boosters for me from her ‘personal stash’.

      After the treatment, the hard selling tactics began. First they start with whats your budget? $200 a month. Okay so let’s get you on a 30 session treatment that looks at 3 areas, thighs, tummy, but. Each 10 session costs 3700 (apparently this is already discounted with a special coupon of 1000 for every 10 sessions) so a total of $11100 for 30 and they throw in the space capsule for free so you get 60 sessions at approx $300 via your credit card for over 36 months. I said NO.

      Then they suggest 2 body parts at $7200 and I said NO. Then they said 1 body part and I said NO. Then they said why don’t you put $350 to get 1 hammer roll (HR) and 3 free space capsules(SC) . I thought that sounded reasonable, and I would have my remaining free hammer roll trial from 98.7 to use as well.

      However after signing and paying, i asked to schedule my remaining 5 sessions and the consultant grace and Gina said I had only 4 sessions left(1H and 3SC) . I questioned her on what happened to my remaining 1H from my trial? She started to lie and said that oh they thought I understood that it’s only 1H and 3SC. Then she said oh if you walk in for 350 you can get 2H and 3SC. (Essentially meaning that by paying 350 I had already used my 1st H session earlier even though it’s my free trail). WTF?

      Immediately I accused her of cheating and lying to me and asked for my refund and got it back in full.

      Please make sure to protect yourself, if you feel you are being coerced into buying and have already paid, mention the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act and that you will sue them using these two acts. Most likely you will get 100% of your money back. Make sure you do it within 5 business days and DONT LEAVE the outlet without getting your money back. Otherwise, make sure they write a letter with company stamp and signature that you have submitted your complain.

      4. It is an unfair practice for a supplier, in relation to a consumer transaction —
      (a)
      to do or say anything, or omit to do or say anything, if as a result a consumer might reasonably be deceived or misled;
      (b)
      to make a false claim;

      All the best.

  13. I am the current customer of Dorra Slimming at Lot One and my slimming consultant is Ms. A. I signed up their packages since March 2013 and managed to reduce my dress size from XL to M, so I think my $$$ was worth spent;-)

    Ms. A is a very gentle girl that always reminds me to come for my weekly appointment. She did shared with me about the working environment at Dorra Slimming whereby some of her colleagues are very pushy as they want to earn more sales commissions. Luckily Ms. A is not those pushy type of consultant and she always gave me additional treatments and suppliment products to assist me in weight loss. I can feel her sincerity in providing me the slimming services of Dorra.

    I think we must be firmed when someone goes beyond the line and push us just to close the sales and earn their commissions. As a seperate issue, I think treatment @ Dorra Slimming is quick effective, at least for me as I have experianced visible kg drop… Cheers!

    • Hi Mimi, read your post, and thanks for cooling down my heart. I too just signed up Dorra last week. Yes, i agreed in term of closing sales, they’re real aggressive and damn expensive! But compared to previous Slimming center i went before(Bizzybodyline), which is much cheaper than Dorra, their results on Slimming was even worse! So atleast i did really see my shape is reducing after 3 Slimming sessions from Dorra.
      How long and how much in total u have spent? I believe that you too was desperate for Slimming, need your experience to tell me more~ tq!

  14. Hi there

    I am so concerned reading all of these views and I am so sad for all of the experiences that you have been having. Do any of you have the exact ingredients of these products and any studies which back up their claims? I have tried to speak to them and I’ve tried to email them but they won’t tell me!

    Cheers!

  15. I stumbled upon this blog n I’m gonna have my trial treatment at Dorra in about the next 30 minutes. But I already made up my mind not to sign up anything. furrow reviews scare me a bit. Thanks for sharing ur experiences.

    I went to Dorra slimming. After the weighing session, the consultant ask me to take off my shirt and shorts and take my photo in order to show me the difference. May I ask IS IT NORMAL PROCEDURE? (she said she only capture body but not the face…I did believe…NOW thinking back…dono whether its truth or not)…. NOW seriously worry about it. Will them use for advertisement or show to the other?? I am so worry..Can anyone pls reply me?
