Put simply, a waist trainer is a type of high compression garment which is worn around the midsection. It’s designed to shape your body and the results can be instantaneous, giving you a sculpted look in a matter of minutes.
However, a good quality waist trainer does much more than provide a temporary boost. The majority are designed to deliberately make you sweat more while you work out, giving you better results with less exercise. By stimulating thermal activity within your core, every time you exercise it will be more effective and you’ll have the added benefit of improved posture too. If you ever thought hourglass curves were a fantasy, a waist trainer could be just what you need.

Getting The Sizing Right
The key to getting the very best results is getting the size right from the start. The importance of this cannot be over-emphasised.
You might be tempted to squeeze into the smallest size possible in the hope that you’ll end up with that tiny waist you’ve always wanted. However, if you’ve chosen a size that’s too small you’ll feel desperately uncomfortable and you won’t get those gorgeous smooth curves that you’ve seen elsewhere.
Shapewear that’s too tight creates unwanted lumps and bumps and won’t be a flattering look. If in doubt, it’s better to size up than to wear a waist trainer that’s a bit of a squeeze.
Trying On Your Waist Trainer
When you first try your waist trainer on it might seem like an uphill task but don’t give in; the more frequently you wear it the easier it will seem. Once you’ve done up the first hook the others can be fastened much more easily; it won’t take long before you barely need to think twice!
Starting at the bottom of your waist and moving upwards is often the easiest way as it gradually pulls you in, bit by bit. When it’s completely done up, the waist trainer should fit over your midsection very snugly without feeling painful.
If you’re new to the world of waist trainers, here’s what you can expect:
▪ It’s really difficult the first time! But fear not, as it does get easier
▪ You’ll only be able to wear your waist trainer for short periods at first
▪ You won’t be inclined to overeat
▪ You’ll find it hard to remember what life was like before you wore one!
Using Your Waist Trainer
The best bit about waist trainers is that they can be used by anyone. No matter what your age, weight or fitness level is, a waist trainer will deliver results to all body types. Regardless of whether you want to shed some serious pounds or just tone up here and there, a waist trainer can help to slim, sculpt and tighten your midsection.
However, just because it’s accessible by anyone doesn’t mean you won’t need a little adjustment to get started. The compression of the waist trainer can take a while to get used to and your garment will need to be gently broken in too.
When you wear your waist trainer for the first time, it can be an unfamiliar feeling but one thing’s for sure, you’ll love how it looks! Because of this, you might be tempted to take the bull by the horns and just wear it all day long. After all, who wouldn’t want to lose 1-3 inches instantly and look slimmer and taller too?!
But no matter how much better your clothes fit, don’t make the mistake of doing too much, too soon. If you’ve never done any waist training before, it’s essential to start slowly.
The first time you wear your waist trainer, you may be taken aback by how it feels; the chances are you’ve never worn anything that’s designed to fit you this tightly. Start by doing it up on the loose setting. If you’re wondering where to start, the easiest way to fasten it up is by doing up the bottom hook and then working your way up. It might feel quite cumbersome at first but you’ll soon get much quicker - honestly!
Once it’s done up and in position, you may feel rather stiff; this is correct as this is how it keeps your midsection in position and your back straight. This is also why after approximately an hour it can start to feel uncomfortable. You’ll need to build up your strength to be able to wear your waist trainer for longer.
Remember: a waist trainer should never hurt or cause physical pain. If you ever experience this, the waist trainer should be removed instantly.
As you steadily increase the amount of time you’re wearing the waist trainer, you can split the sessions into two rather than one continuous period throughout the day. This can make it easier on your body. After no more than a couple of weeks you’ll probably be comfortable enough to wear your waist trainer all day long. We suggest a minimum of six hours to get the best results.
