How to use a Waist Trainer

Waist Trainers or slimming corsets have become a popular trend and are all over social media with influencers such as the Kardashians loving them. They are a great way to make your waist appear instantly slimmer as well as helping to promote healthy long term weight loss. Before wearing a waist trainer though, make sure you know how to use it properly and how it works.

Understanding the immediate & long-term results

Waist trainers work by helping to slim and shape the waist area as soon as it is put on. This gives immediate results and is the main reason why people choose to wear a slimming corset.

Continued use of a waist trainer does also have long term benefits. By wearing a waist trainer it helps to boost the core temperature of the body which can result in an increase of the metabolic rate. By increasing the metabolism, it can help increase the speed in which the body converts the food we eat into useful energy instead of storing it as unwanted fat.

It is also possible to use a waist trainer corset alongside other metabolism or fat boosting products to help maximise this process and improve the potential of the weight loss effects of the waist trainer.

Wearing your waist trainer for the first time

The first thing to do when you receive your waist trainer is to make sure the size is correct. Make sure to use the size guide associated with your waist trainer. When worn it is supposed to feel somewhat tight but if you put it on and it is so tight that it is uncomfortable or you cannot breath then look to trying to next size up. If you are between sizes for a slimming corset we recommend always going with the bigger size. As you lose weight you can then always try the smaller one. At the same time make sure your waist trainer isn’t too big. If it is too loose then it will not be as effective and will not give you results you desire.

Once you are sure your waist trainer is the correct size and you know who may need a waist trainer, then you can begin to wear it whenever you like. For the first day wearing your waist cinching corset we recommend only using it for about an hour so that your body can get used to it. The next day you can then wear for two and the next three until your body is completely comfortable and used to wearing it. Do not wear your waist trainer for more than 6 hours in one day though.

Wear your waist trainer daily

Wearing your waist trainer is simple and our best tip to get results from your waist cincher is to wear it daily. We recommend using it for around 3 to 6 hours per day but do whatever you feel comfortable with. If you wear your slimming corset everyday you can expect to see some more longer term results after around three months, however every body is different so this will depend on the person wearing it.

You can wear your slimming corset whenever you like including day, night or during exercise. Make sure you’re not wearing it all the time though and give your body some time to relax.

Always listen to your body

It is important that you listen to your body and do what it telling you. Do not suffer to be skinny; if it is uncomfortable or you have trouble breathing then take it off. Do not wear it excessively and think of it as more of an aid alongside healthy eating and exercise instead of a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. A waist trainer will always give you the best results when worn properly and safely and also when used alongside a healthy lifestyle. If you have any doubts with using a waist trainer, especially those with pre-existing medical conditions, then ask advice from a medical professional.
