What is a waist trainer?

A waist trainer is sometimes called the 21st century version of a corset, because it is a compression garment that shapes the waist into that ideal hourglass figure. It is generally constructed with thick fabric and steel boning for extra compression, and is significantly different from shapewears and girdles. It is crucial to have the right size for your waist size as if it’s too tight it can damage internal organs.

There are many different types of waist trainers of various waist measurements, but the most important types to consider when beginning your journey is whether you need one that can be used for working out or not. This is very important because you can end up injuring yourself if you wear the wrong type of trainer.  

Waist trainers also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, like our Luxx curves waist trainer that is available for those with a long, medium or shorter torso. This variety is often overlooked, but it is needed to ensure that you get results from waist training consistently.

Benefits of wearing a waist trainer

There are many known benefits of wearing a waist trainer, but the number one goal is usually achieving that snatched waist. The right waist trainer however, does a little bit more than that, and we think you’ll love the added benefits. Listed below are three main benefits of wearing a waist trainer consistently.

Better Posture

Similarly to the traditional corset, a waist trainer is a great way to improve poor posture, and correct form while working out. Its steel boned composition is generally a great way to prevent slouching, and provide abdominal support to your back muscles and spinal cord. If you struggle with poor posture, a waist trainer is a great way to perfect it, and maintain those results.

Weight Loss

If your stomach and back are a problem area when it comes to fat loss, e.g too much belly fat, a waist trainer is the tool you need. Waist trainers do not burn fat themselves, but help to burn fat by how the body reacts to it. It generally reduces appetite so you can control those unnecessary cravings. It also works by helping you to shed that excessive water weight through sweat while working out.

Hourglass Figure

Lastly, every woman dreams of that hourglass shape that they see on models and celebrities, and waist trainers are a great way to obtain this body shape without having to completely alter your body type and natural waist or get a personal trainer.

While many claim that this hourglass figure doesn’t stay after waist training, we’ve had many customer reviews that show the opposite. It is important to understand that waist training is not magic, and it only works if you remain consistent. We also recommend a solid fitness routine with strength training and cardio, especially core muscles, and a healthy diet to maintain those results.

After all, if you go back to the same eating habits and inactive lifestyle that caused weight gain, your results will not remain so healthy eating is key.

How to Wear a Waist Trainer

Wearing a waist trainer, especially for the first time, can be a daunting process, but we’re here to prepare you, and provide comfort for you on this journey. For a quick, step by step follow through on how to wear a waist trainer, you can start by taking a look at our Luxx Curves tutorial below.

There are a few additional claims that we want to satisfy on this topic, so here are some of our most Frequently asked questions when it comes to wearing a waist trainer.

1.) Do you wear a waist trainer over or under your clothes?

We recommend putting a thin tank top on before wearing your waist trainer on, for best results. Despite the types of materials used, you can develop rashes and irritation from wearing a waist trainer, if there is no barrier between it and the skin. For best results, never place the waist trainer on your bare skin.

2.) How long do you have to wear a waist trainer to see results?

Waist trainers are most effective when used alongside a proper diet and exercise routine. Still, everyone’s body is different, so everyone’s results and timeline are gonna be different. On average though, if you remain consistent you should start seeing results within 30 days!

3.) How do you wear a waist trainer while working out?

Simply get a waist trainer that is made for working out! The average waist trainer can be very constricting, but there are actually waist trainers that have been made for the purpose of working out, and those are the ones to incorporate into your physical activity. If you were not told that your waist trainer is exercise friendly, we wouldn’t recommend it.

Safety when wearing a waist Trainer

There are a few more safety tips that you should consider when using a waist trainer. These will allow you to get the best possible results and bypass some tricky little mistakes that you can make in the beginning.

Our first safety tip is to make sure you’re wearing the correct size when you first start. You should feel some compression, and maybe a little discomfort due to your body adjusting, but if you’re feeling pain, something’s wrong. A good rule of thumb is making sure your waist trainer is tight to put on, but not so tight that it causes the skin to fold underneath it.

Normally, you should begin with your waist trainer at the last hooks, and aim to close it further as time goes by.

Another important tip is to start gradually, by using the waist trainer for about 2 to 3 hours per day, and assess how your body feels. If it’s seamless for those 2 to 3 hours, it may be bigger than you need, but if it's overwhelmingly tight, then chances are it’s too small for you.

Our final safety tip is to definitely buy a waist trainer that is well-made and proven to work. You want to make sure that the waist trainer you have invested in has been constructed with high-quality, durable materials and steel boning. We don’t recommend getting fast fashion waist trainers that are made of plastic/polyester, they will only cause you harm in the long run.
