Waist training is a continuous process for many women. We want to see results, but to find out, we need to look at our before and after progress. So many women from all over the world had reached out to us and shared their before and after stories and even gave us pictures for proof. It is exciting to read their testimonies and watch their pictures.
From our observation, we have seen that women have improved their bodies by wearing waist trainers, but their developments are varying from each other. Others have lost weight faster than their friends. There are women and even men who have gained weight at first because of the practice of deprivation. However, once they mastered self-discipline, they were able to get the results that they truly want.
What is Waist Trainer?
The waist trainer is similar to a 16th Century corset, which is a process of gradually reducing the waistline by wearing a waist trainer for a few hours every day. Many waist trainers or waist training belts are usually made of latex with plastic or steel boning and have a clip or zipper to adjust the tightness. Some people will opt for vintage corsets with laces, but those may be more expensive. If you wear them on a regular basis for a fixed period of time, your body will eventually retain its shape and get an ‘hourglass’ silhouette.
What Results Can You Expect?
First of all, you have to clarify something – what your goal is, what your lifestyle and genetics is, and what your natural body type is. These factors are all related to the results of waist training. Generally, by wearing a waist trainer every day, you will see significant results within a few weeks. You can also take your before-and-after photos or measure your waist every day. At the same time, in order to achieve the desired result, you also need to adopt a healthy diet and committed exercise.

Is Waist Training Safe?
You may be noticed that many critics may talk about how dangerous it is to wear a corset or waist trainer, but as long as you wear it the right way, you won’t experience any pain or discomfort. But what you need to know is that waist training is not a magic trick to lose weight. It doesn’t burn fat, it just simply gives you a short-term slim look. If you ‘re eager to lose inches off your waist – just exercise, and eat vegetables while wearing a waist trainer!
Moreover, you need to remember the following tips before put your waist trainer on:
- Find the right balance and don’t wear it too tight.
- Don’t overdo it. Just start on the right path and be patient.
- Never wear a waist trainer for more than 8 hours per day.
- If you feel any discomfort, take off your waist trainer immediately because it is not working correctly.
How to Clean a Waist Trainer
- You should put your waist trainer in warm water and add some gentle baby shower gel or professional detergent.
- Don’t wring your waist trainer because it will deform it.
- Never dry it in the dryer, and never wash it in the washing machine.
- Hang dry, air dry, or lay it flat to dry.
- Avoid exposing your waist trainer directly to the sunlight as it accelerates the breakdown of the fabric.
- Once your waist trainer is completely dry, never roll it up and put it in the wardrobe. You should put it flat in a drawer or hang it on your lingerie hangers.
