Know more about waist trainers

What is a waist trainer?

A waist trainer is a high-compression shaping garment that you wear around your midsection to slim your waistline instantly and supplement your fitness goals. Most waist trainers stimulate thermal activity in your core, making you sweat more with less effort during exercise. The benefits of waist training include a more effective workout, improved posture, and dramatic hourglass curves—instantly.

If you struggle with over-eating, wearing a waist trainer can diminish your appetite. Instead of eating 2-3 large meals per day, you should feel fuller and may be more inclined to eat smaller portioned meals throughout the day (eating more frequently can speed up your metabolism). Persistently wearing your waist trainer and controlling food intake can result in a flatter, more toned and tighter looking stomach region, even when your waist trainer is off. Waist trainers are not only great for appetite suppression but also encourage an improved posture as it forces you to sit/stand in an upright position. This can result in the relief of back pain and tension that you probably did not realize was caused by poor posture, in particular, those who stand or sit for long periods at a time throughout the day

The different shapes of a waist corset

A corset is designed in various shapes to fit a woman’s waist. There are plenty of available options you can choose but the most common ones include waist cincher and hourglass and conical shaped corsets. Other shapes are the S bend, Elizabethan and the pipe stem. Hourglass shaped corset is designed to fit around the ribs and make a quite curvy waist. Waist cincher or Waist pie or Waist Training is designed to hold the stomach and is suitable for short people with a short torso. The conical shaped corset comes in straight form creating an upside cone figure that holds down from the top to the waist.

Body types and suitable corsets

When buying waist training corset, the second consideration is the person’s body type. There are those who are taller, curvier, those with the slim body, petite and plus size. Any types of corset may suit those with an average body figure. If you are tall but has a slim build, you must add emphasis on your bust to make it look fuller by wearing a chest beaded trim or cinched in waist to come up with an hourglass look. If you are five feet short, a shorter corset is perfect for you. If you are short and full figured, go for the one that pushover your waits and highlights your curves. For tall full figured ladies, longer boned waist training corset might suit best. Those women with athletic build must keep their shoulders uncovered so that it appears small. If her body has a heavy bottom, a trimmed corset is her best type to wear. If you are focusing on your waist or belly, waist training corsets are the best to shape your waist size or belly. Finally, an apple shaped corseter should wear a corset to push in the stomach and make it look flat.
