If you are wondering what waist training is, then here is the quick and easy version. It’s the process of making your waist slimmer by wearing corsets or special latex waist shapers.
You may have heard about waist training from a friend or read about celebrities who are talking about waist training, but this process is actually nothing new at all. In fact, it dates back hundreds of years and really became popular right around the 16th century.
During the Victorian era, women would wear super tight lace corsets to give them that hourglass figure with a super slim waist. The waist training that women do nowadays is basically the same process but now there are special latex waist shapers and cinchers that can be worn to help the slimming process even more.
How Does Waist Training Work?
With waist training, your waist will not cinch in 4 inches overnight. This is actually a gradual process that requires a women to consistently wear the waist shaper to help put pressure on their waist to draw it in over a period of time.
The waist shapers that are made nowadays can actually be worn while exercising to help speed up this process a bit. The shaper generates more heat which causes more pressure as well as helps build up your core muscles at the same time.
Buying the best shaper or corset for your body is also key to successful waist training. You want one that will fit your body correctly and although it is made to fit tight, you don’t want one that is too small in size for you. You want the corset to fit your body tightly and to pull in your waist but it shouldn’t cause you pain nor should it fall down all the time as well.
In the beginning you will have to break in your shaper or corset and you may only be able to comfortably wear it for 2-3 hours a day. As your body starts getting used to it, you can expand the time to up to 8 hours a day, which will really help the waist training process move a little faster.
Wearing the corset and shaper over a certain period of time will result in a semi permanent waist reduction. This is semi permanent because most women who stop using the shapers will eventually notice that their waist will start returning to the previous size without the help of the waist trainers.
But, this doesn’t mean that once you get your perfect hourglass figure you have to wear the corset forever. At that point it may just take you wearing the shapers a few hours every few days to keep your waist that slim.
It’s definitely a good idea to learn more about waist training and how it works as well as learn the the best way to find the best waist shaper for your body before you just jump right in. Educating yourself properly is a great way to keep yourself healthy as well as give you a head start on slimming your waist.
