What does a waist trainer do?

August 27, 2018

When it comes to getting your waist where it needs to be, a waist trainer is one method to use to achieve your goals. Indeed, a waist trainer is suitable for many reasons. For one, waist trainers have the individual's goals in mind. And the term has nothing to do with hiring a personal trainer at the gym to reduce fat and build endurance and muscle strength, etc. The main idea behind waist training is to meld the body into a more hour-glass form. Using a corset for waist training is considered a very feminine approach. 

Waist trainers have everything to do with the wearing of corsets. An hourglass shape can be the reason that women used these corsets (waist trainers). These waist trainers have been used after women have given birth. With tighter corsets being used over time, they can become broken in. 

How can women use corset or waist trainers? 

Today, the use of corsets for waist training is not as widespread as it once was in the past. However, there are well-known, famous women who have used waist trainers to work the shape that they are looking for. And some have used waist trainers after giving birth because they wanted to get back to a figure that they thought was desirable. Waist trainer is used as stylish accouterments to their overall outfit based on the attractiveness of an hourglass shape. Waist trainers like corsets have been worn over dresses, blouses and as standalone tops for a stylish appeal. Today, women have many options. Gone are the days of bra burning to make a statement about one's femininity and woman's rights. 

What is stiff boning? 

When using a waist trainer, the term of "stiff boning" is used when describing a steel bar as part of the corset to provide an exaggerated hourglass shape. With this type of waist training, there can be a condition like floating ribs or slipping rib syndrome. The tenth rib can be associated with floating rib syndrome. There can also be a movement of some organs. 

However, when corsets are used in a wise, safe manner, no dangers are associated with a woman's waist training to strive to get that hourglass figure ultimately. Women should use corsets that are the right size, based on one's current waist size, so they limit any harm from waist training. Being able to find the best with for your current waits, and then adjust to a smaller size as time passes is the key to achieving the best results you are looking for. Making sure that the waist trainer is not too tight is a crucial part of proceeding wisely. 

As the saying goes, "haste makes waste." The ability to take a slow, yet steady progress by using a waist trainer correctly, will ultimately lead to excellent results. If you are very aggressive with over cinching, it can end up damaging one's corset or causing pain, bruising or discomfort to one's ribs and side.
