Is waist training right for me?

Let’s talk about the beginners guide to waist training. Waist training: Well of COURSE we’re including waist training in our list! There is a lot of confusion around this term due to all the recent press from Kim Kardashian and a few others that are using “waist training” to define what they are doing at the gym with a latex cincher. However, true waist training requires the use of a steel boned corset to get the semi-permanent results that most true waist trainers are trying to achieve. You’ll find lots more information about waist trainers and waist training on our Waist Training 101 page.

Waist training came into vogue with several celebrities, like Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian’s waist trainers, J-Lo waist training, Jessica Alba, Lily James and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. They are caught using these during workouts to accentuate their curves… and then continuing to use it to show that the curve was the style. When the celebrities started saying yes, the curvy look came back in and women everywhere started to look out for the perfect solution to stay not only in shape, but also with THE shape.

When you wear your waist trainer for the first time, it can be an unfamiliar feeling but one thing’s for sure, you’ll love how it looks! Because of this, you might be tempted to take the bull by the horns and just wear it all day long. After all, who wouldn’t want to lose 1-3 inches instantly and look slimmer and taller too?! But no matter how much better your clothes fit, don’t make the mistake of doing too much, too soon. If you’ve never done any waist training before, it’s essential to start slowly.

How To Use a Waist Trainer
1. Your body must become accustomed to the constriction of the waist trainer. We recommend that the first few days of wearing the trainer to wear for limited amount of time 2-4 hours per day (depending on how much you feel is comfortable).
2. Gradually add an hour or two to your regime until you are able to wear the trainer through out the entire day.
3. Once the trainer is worn-in you can then begin to use the second set of clasps making the trainer tighter.
4. As you lose weight it will become more comfortable and will not feel as tight.
5. Now you can progress to the next size down as part of your continued weight loss regime. See extra details on How To Use a Waist Trainer.

What people write about WaistTrain : “Absolutely loving my waist trainer. Much better than any ‘suck me in’ pants and way cheaper! It’s really comfortable and doesn’t ride up or down like others. It’s given me my confidence back since losing my waist after having my 2 nippers!” I don’t have huge results yet, but just because of that I got lots of my confidence back, I simply feel way better with myself.”

During the weight loss process, you will begin to see and feel the difference as the waist trainer becomes more comfortable and less tight. Bear in mind that everyone’s body shapes are different and that results are not always replicable. To get the dramatic results that a waist trainer can offer, you’ll need to know your own size first. Most women only have a rough idea so it’s often helpful to measure yourself so you know you have the most up to date measurements. Always use a fabric or vinyl tape measure as these won’t stretch, and make sure it remains parallel with the ground at every point. We recommend using two waist trainers during your weight loss program in order to give each trainer a resting period. This will ensure maximum effectiveness in keeping your stomach firm. Your waist trainers should be hand washed in warm water with a non-scented detergent and laid flat to air dry.
