Women have enough self-esteem issues already but when motherhood sets in, there are issues that arise which new mothers want to fight against such as gaining weight and losing their self-confidence. When you’re pregnant, it’s natural to have a thicker tummy area but as soon as you give birth, you want to remove the extra inches. This is a normal desire or a lot of new moms. They want to regain their pre-baby body with flat tummy and fit abs. Is this possible with waist training?
The wonders of waist training have been discovered centuries ago but modern moms these days are just discovering its secrets. They want to find out if this type of training will work best with their new belly shape. It’s a natural tendency to look for ways in order to be slim and attractive again after the delivery of their baby and this can be possible with wearing waist trainers or corsets. We think that the fear of some moms to incorporate waist training is completely understandable. They don’t want to experience extreme pain from tightening their waist area because of pressure from the corsets.
Pregnancy wounds need time to heal especially if they have undergone the C-section. It is important to keep an open mind and not say no to waist training right away. Take your time and do your homework first before you plunge in because your body may also need time to adjust before it can handle waist training. You can give your body a rest for three months and just incorporate a balanced and healthy diet especially if you are breastfeeding. You don’t need to wear corsets right away. If you are more apprehensive, you have to ask your doctor first before you start the training. That is perfectly alright and is highly recommended.
Observe your body especially your tummy area after you have given birth. Touch and feel your abdomen and the loose skin and you will notice that this area of your body is no longer as firm as it was before. This is expected and is definitely normal for a new mother. Don’t panic or be devoured by self-pity. Your body will eventually go back to the right weight if you stick to the right diet and exercise. When you start to wear waist trainers, you will immediately notice the pressure in your belly area. Listen and notice the reaction of your body. If you feel any pain that is unusual or internal, discontinue use. If you feel nothing then you can do it more often.
Waist training to be effective needs to be done regularly. If you are a newbie, you can do it thrice a week for a month or if you can handle it, maybe, every other day. You can also begin with just 30 minutes and you will instantly look better especially if you wear it underneath your old clothes. Your body will have a better shape. As you get used to the tightness, then you can gradually try the corset for an hour or two for a week or two then just continue improving as the weeks and months pass.
We read blogs and articles from new mothers who shared their experience with waist training and 95% of them said it was effective. Most of them checked with their doctors first before doing the training and their doctors approved. This is definitely a safe training as long as you do it in moderation. It is important to pay attention to what your body can handle. It is also good to have a support system while you are doing this training. Perhaps, you can join a group of new moms who are waist training. In this way, you can swap ideas and you will learn how to go about it correctly.
You can read about testimonials of people who have tried waist training so you can make your own opinion of whether to try it for yourself or not. Actually, most new mothers are instructed by their doctors to wear binders after they give birth but of course, corsets are much more rigidly structured than traditional binders. We think that the best way to do the waist training is to have a custom-made corset for your body. This ensures that you are wearing the right design and it is especially suitable for the shape of your body. Not all corsets are created alike, you must keep that in mind.
A crucial factor in waist training for mothers especially young moms who are self-conscious about their body is the idea of responsibility. Can you hand waist training after you give birth? Is it the right choice for your body? Can you manage it with your many obligations as a new mom? The great thing about waist training is all you have to do is wear the trainers underneath your regular clothes and go about your day normally. It doesn’t require much effort except the initial part of putting it on and taking it off. You would be surprised that you’re wearing the corsets for five hours and you just noticed at the end of the day that you are indeed bound by a piece of fabric. Waist training doesn’t have to hinder your day.
Of course, you have to be careful with waist training. You have to take into account that you have just survived a very delicate time in your life and there is a possibility that this training can affect your body. We hope in a positive way by bringing you a firm stomach and a sexier and healthier body. Waist trainers can only be harmful if you put it in an extreme tightness that your body can barely move and you can’t breathe. Just be cautious with your training and your actions and you will be alright.
