You may have heard some skeptical people say that waist trainers don’t work and you may even know some people who have tried using a waist shaper and didn’t see any results.
If you are considering waist training to get a slimmer, more defined waist as well as a specific hourglass figure, there are some things to keep in mind so that you get the best results.
The most important thing to keep in mind when it comes waist training and really making the process work for you, is to be consistent and patient. You are not going to get the desired hourglass figure and a flat stomach overnight. It will take time and for some women it may take more time than for other women.
Here are some tips to help waist shapers and corsets really work for you to get that desired defined and cinched waist you are looking for.
When you first get your corset or shaper you don’t want to wear it for the whole day but instead you should start off gradually with an hour or so a day. Then you can work up to wearing it for 2 hours and then 3 hours and eventually you should be able to wear it for approximately 8 hours.
This helps to break the corset in and also helps you to get used to the feeling of the shaper gradually.
There are lots of cases were women will wear the shaper for 5 hours the first time and they get frustrated because it is uncomfortable or they don’t see drastic results in the first week.
Instead, take it gradual and work your way up to using the waist trainer for longer periods of time. It will help you with consistency as well allow you to be comfortable.
Don’t Expect Drastic Results Overnight
There are a lot of misconceptions about waist trainers because some people simply assume they can wear the shaper for a few hours and then magically have the desired cinched-in hourglass figure they have always wanted.
As mentioned, waist training takes consistency over a longer period of time. You start seeing your waist more defined and flatter within a few days but it will take a lot longer than that to see any type of drastic results. This is especially true if you don’t already have a defined waist or you are overweight as it may take even longer for you.
That doesn’t mean that waist trainers don’t work though. It just means that just like anything else it will take effort and time.
Waist Training Should Be Done in Conjunction with a Healthy Diet and Exercise
To get the maximum results from your waist trainer, use it in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. You will definitely see results much faster if you use the shaper along with a healthy diet and exercise at least 3-4 times a week. (Please consult your physician before starting any exercise program or diet).
With a healthy diet it can help you lose inches around your waist but also help cut down on bloating due to greasy and fried foods. If your stomach is bloated and full from the wrong kinds of foods you may not be able to see the work you are doing with the waist trainer. That doesn’t mean you have to go on any type of extreme diet but you should aim to eat healthier and use moderation on less than healthy foods.
Exercise can also help maximize your waist training efforts by not only strengthening your core muscles but also help burning stomach fat as well. Also, there are waist shapers that are made specifically to be worn while working out to help provide stability as well as promote more body heat, which can help slim the stomach more.
If you plan on using a waist trainer you don’t have to change your diet or start exercising to see results but just keep in mind that you will see results quicker and maybe even more dramatically if you incorporate a healthy diet and an exercise program into your life as well.
There have been lots of great testimonials from women that have tried waist training shapers and corsets and have seen awesome results. Waist training has been around for hundreds of years and has been proven effective if you practice consistency and realize that changing your body takes more than just a week.
