Using your waist trainer

Let’s talk about what is waist training. Use a liner. ?It’s important to wear a layer between your body and your corset, our skin has naturally occurring oils and moisture that can affect your corset. And, since corsets are dry clean only, a liner will help to keep your corset smelling and looking fresh! Give our Seamless Bamboo Corset Liners a try! Your corset will need “seasoning.” The first time you lace up your corset, it’s important you DON’T lace it too tightly. Lace your corset so that it is snug. You should be able to easily slide several fingers to your whole hand in the top or bottom of your corset. Ideally, your modesty panel should just reach the other side if your corset, but depending on your natural measurements and “squish factor” your modesty panel may not reach and that is okay! The boning will take on your shape as the corset adjusts to your body. Trying to force the corset too quickly can damage and warp the boning-and cause you some discomfort as well. We have damaged corsets in photo shoots trying to get that fitted look you only achieve after breaking a corset in.

It didn’t start from that point. In fact, the waist trainer became popular in the 1500s. Women used it especially after PostPartum to get their shape back and to highlight their best looks… just like they were before they had a child. 🙂 Of course, back then, it was based on tying cotton around the body with bone rods to get their look back. In the 1800s, corsets became the style. You can think it was just a fashion statement, but if you look a little closer at the garments, it was really to highlight the look of attraction to any nearby admirers that want to see all our beauty and glory from the waist up… or down. The waist is the central point that shows it all, isn’t it?

Put simply, a waist trainer is a type of high compression garment which is worn around the midsection. It’s designed to shape your body and the results can be instantaneous, giving you a sculpted look in a matter of minutes. However, a good quality waist trainer does much more than provide a temporary boost. The majority are designed to deliberately make you sweat more while you work out, giving you better results with less exercise. By stimulating thermal activity within your core, every time you exercise it will be more effective and you’ll have the added benefit of improved posture too. If you ever thought hourglass curves were a fantasy, a waist trainer could be just what you need.

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 more details at Waist Trainer Benefits.

What people say about WaistTrain : “Love the latex waist trainer! Made it to the tightest hooks within a week & a half. I wear it at work everyday & recently attempted a jog wearing it. Keeps good form with a straight back! I’ve lost a bit of size especially the old love handles that just were not shifting, but you seriously have to put the work in as well as the trainer but I definitely think it has pulled me in making it all feel flatter. Magic. Highly recommended the latex as it’s longer in size to cover the bra rolls & love handles”

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.
