Waist Training Before and After (Proof That It WORKS!)

Luxx Curves Transformations

Getting your waist in shape is often a very difficult task. For some people, no matter how much they may exercise and try to stay fit, their waist just doesn’t want to budge, and may be taken as something hindering their healthy lifestyle. They may be slimmer overall, but without that hourglass shape that so many people are looking for. However, with a waist trainer, you can actually help your waist take on a better shape.

But is this just a rumor, or is there actual truth behind this? Are there any before and after results that can show you whether waist trainers really work or not? It turns out that there are – and more and more people are beginning to reap the benefits of waist training.

Waist Training Before And After Results
(Featured Stories)

Done right, waist training can show some spectacular results. Obviously, if you wish the results to be visible and in a shorter amount of time, you need to do what it takes to get the most out of it. However, if you stay on track, you may be able to reap results as the following LuxxCurves users did.

Heidi - The Mommy With Waist Training Results

Heidi is a recovering addict, sober for 8 years and later on becoming the mother of two beautiful children that she’s very proud of. She has always had a problem with extra weight, particularly around the waist, which started from her addiction days. Even though she called it a “healthy living weight” and her husband would tell her that she was beautiful just the way she was, Heidi was still unhappy with how her waist and belly area looked.

Her pregnancy wasn’t easy on her either, as it caused her to gain a lot of baby weight around her midsection. This, together with her recovery from her addiction, caused Heidi to experience depression. She was not happy with how she looked and wanted to bring some changes into her life.

Heidi first started with dieting. She found the keto diets and intermittent fasting. She used almost everything you could think of, but while she did lose a couple of pounds, her stomach refused to budge. She felt that it continued to be unsightly and stick out – “pooched out”, as she put it – and this made her feel unhappy about her overall physique and appearance.

However, at some point, she came across a girl on Instagram who talked about waist training, piquing her interest. This caused her to spiral down into a YouTube search of waist training, watching every video that came her way, and eventually, she decided to buy her first LuxxCurves waist trainer. According to Heidi, this was the start of one of the best decisions she’d ever made.

She started this journey at the beginning of April 2019 at 42 inches – at that time, a traditional size extra-large. By being consistent with her waist training, in just five weeks, she got to a size medium. Heidi was very impressed by this because she couldn’t believe how quickly it happened.

She kept the same diet and exercise routine, and she also took some probiotics to help with the acid reflux during the waist training. Because of this, she didn’t have any problems wearing the waist trainer for prolonged amounts of time.

As a nice extra, she also noticed her posture improving. Heidi works from home, meaning she has to sit at a desk all day. This caused her to experience severe back pain at one point, but once she started wearing the waist trainer, her back no longer hurt as much.

This was because while compressing her tummy, the waist trained also worked to support her back. She would no longer slouch and no longer maintain a posture that would hurt her back – she could finally sit correctly.

This is why Heidi is so eager to recommend waist training to anyone who’s on the fence about it. She says it’s best to take it one step at a time and “just do it.” Considering she went from an XL to an M in just five weeks, the results were truly spectacular in her case.

Suhey - Waist Training Without exercise or dieting

If there’s one thing that Suhey hates, it’s going on a diet or exercising. While she’s not against eating clean or exercising, it’s just not her thing. However, her tummy and back rolls were beginning to bother her and were getting out of control. That was when she came across the LuxxCurves waist trainer. By the second week, she still had some belly fat, but the size of her belly was visibly reduced even when she wasn’t wearing the waist trainer. By week three, the rolls decreased even more. Furthermore, her back rolls were no longer as prominent.

Read Suhey's Full Story

By week four, Suhey could already see a huge difference. By wearing it for a minimum of about 8 hours a week (maximum 14 hours), she noticed some very nice differences. While she only went down an inch from week one to week four (measured when she was not wearing the extender), she did notice that her belly fat was significantly reduced.

Plus, when wearing the waist trainer, her waist started looking nicely shaped from the very beginning. Suhey no longer looked like she had rolls, and she felt much more well-proportioned overall.

In the beginning, she needed to use a corset extender to get the waist trainer to fit. However, by week four, she had already ditched this, as the trainer then fit without having to further extend it.

Suhey’s posture also improved, allowing her to stand tall and more confidently. In the past, the extra weight would pull a lot on her spine, which caused her to go through frequent back pain. While wearing the waist trainer, her back got some extra support and she no longer felt as much back pain.

Suhey still recommends that if you want to have significant results, you should go on a diet and exercise as well. However, she proved that even without going the extra mile in regard to dieting and exercising, it’s still possible to achieve amazing results. All she did was wear the waist trainer every day, and now her middle section already looks much better.

Olivia - Perfecting That Hourglass Look

Olivia was already slim and had the beginnings of an hourglass figure. Still, since she was rather petite around the bottom and middle, she believed that if she worked a bit on her waist, she could enhance her appearance even more. Since she already had a fairly slim waist, Olivia was led to believe that she didn’t need a waist trainer. However, she lacked the defined curve she wanted that would make her feel good about her body. At this point, she decided to try waist training just to see whether it would work for her or not.

Read Olivia's Full Story

She measured her waist before putting on the waist trainer, then put on the garment using different size adjustments. Immediately after trying it on, she saw major differences in the way her waist looked. She appeared slimmer and with an amplified hourglass figure.

Olivia was one of those people who didn’t know she needed a waist trainer before trying one out. After using it, she put on a dress that hugged her body and was thoroughly impressed with the way her body looked. Her hourglass figure was striking and she fell in love with her waist trainer.

Moreover, the waist trainer helped improve Olivia’s posture. She no longer slouched, and because of this, she looked even more confident. The immediate results of her LuxxCurves waist trainer impressed her so much that she decided it was worth trying it for long-term results as well.

Tatyana - From Corsets to Luxx Curves Waist Trainers

Tatyana was not new to waist training and corsets, but she decided that she wanted to try the LuxxCurves waist trainer to work on her waist a bit more. Her belly fat wasn’t that prominent, but because she had a square waistline, she wanted to achieve a more hourglass-like shape.

Read Tatyana's Full Story

Immediately after putting on the waist trainer, she measured herself, and from a 29-inch waist, she went down half an inch. However, by the end of the week, she measured herself without the waist trainer. At that point, her natural waistline measured 28.5, meaning that she still went down half an inch.

She also ordered a fitness belt so that she could sweat out some of the belly fat. By combining her waist training with exercise and a healthy diet, Tatyana brought her waist down one inch (since she was already quite slim) and managed to sculpt her waist to form her desired hourglass figure.

Can Waist Trainers Really Provide Great Before And After Results?

The overall answer is yes – waist trainers can offer great before and after results, depending of course on the person undergoing the training. First things first – you need to set your goals for your waist training. Most people are training to:

  • Achieve the shape they had before giving birth
  • Reduce the amount of body fat around their midsection
  • Gain better shape on a body that’s already fit (getting that hourglass figure)
  • Strengthen their core and control
  • Get more back comfort
  • Help with a number of other personal goals

Depending on your own specific goals, the before and after results should come at different times. It also depends on how often you engage in waist training, as well as how you approach it. With that in mind, with time, you should be able to see significant results.

Waist training compresses your middle area, essentially “training” it to remember how to stay in a certain shape. Unlike shaping underwear that does not have any boning, waist training will pull at your waistline and drive the memory into it.

Because of this, waist trainers are not considered to be a quick fix, but rather something that can shape your waist in the long term. Eventually, your waist should gain a nice shape even without the waist trainer. This is because, at some point, the waist will remember and retain the shape it should be in.

Many people who have tried waist training for themselves claim that they managed not only to lose weight, but also to visibly trim their waist in just a few weeks. Some say that they were able to get these results without doing anything extra, although others recommend that you take additional measures for better results.

The first effects should become visible within the first couple of weeks – most users say that it’s possible to drop 2-3 inches by the end of the month. That being said, the effects will also be visible from the moment you start training, all because the waist trainer is already slimming down your waist as you’re wearing it.

When wearing a waist trainer, you may look one, two, or even three sizes smaller than you normally do. Moreover, unlike corsets, waist trainers are more comfortable. However, much depends on finding the right fit and material for you. Worn regularly, you are bound to see results.

Tips To Maximize Your Waist Training Results (Winning An Impressive AFTER Result: Weight Loss)

Waist trainers can be great to give you that nice hourglass shape. However, if you want to see some impressive “after” results (i.e. weight loss), you need to learn how to maximize said training. Here are a few tips that most people undergoing waist training recommend following.

1. Take Photos Of Your Progress: Waist Training And Weight Loss

Taking before and after pictures of your body shape involves more than just showing off how much progress you’ve made. It gives you a visual of your weight loss progress and helps you stick to your training. Once you see exactly how much progress you’ve made on your waistline with your waist trainer, you’ll get the motivation to continue because you can see it doing its job.

Ideally, you want to take these pictures in the morning, when your stomach is not full or bloated. You may also want to avoid taking pictures around or during your period for the same reason.

When you’re bloated, even if you’ve already achieved great results, you may not be able to see them in their full glory.

2. Wear Your Waist Trainer Regularly

Constancy and consistency should help you reach your results much faster. With that in mind, you should build up to your perfect time. In the beginning, you’ll be able to wear your waist trainer for about 1-2 hours a day. You can then gradually increase the duration. This will allow your internal organs, rib cage, and core muscles to adjust properly, unlike with corsetry, where you must often wear the garment for a shorter time and may also have adjustment issues with your organs. You can wear your waist trainer throughout the entire day and cinch in the laces gradually, thus allowing for natural waist adjustment.

This all depends on your comfort level. You shouldn’t wear your waist trainer for too long, as a cinched waist may cause you great discomfort, but you should wear it for at least a short time every day so that your waist gets the chance to “remember” the desired shape. Likewise, the lacing needs to be adjusted according to your needs. Wearing a waist trainer 24/7 could lead to certain side effects such as acid reflux, but if you time your sessions properly, you should reap the rewards and gain your desired waist size and shape soon enough.

Wearing a cinched waist while sleeping might turn out to be uncomfortable, but this is still doable. It all depends on your comfort level. With that in mind, it’s recommended that you leave your waist trainer alone, at least throughout the night. Not only can you damage your waist trainer without noticing, but your body also needs a breather.

Don’t overdo it if you’re not comfortable sleeping with your waist trainer. Quality sleep is also important if you wish to lose weight and get your body in shape.

3. Get The Right Size Waist Trainer

When setting on your waist training journey, you need to take care of certain points. When you get a poorly-fitting waist trainer, you may feel a lot of discomfort as you wear it throughout the day. As a result, you may even decide against wearing it – all because you’re just too uncomfortable to do so. It may increase pressure on your internal organs, which leads to flattening your rib cage. Contrary to what you may have heard, a smaller waist trainer won’t bring about better results, but only more discomfort that will likely scrape at your motivation.

To get the most out of your waist trainer as a shaper, you need to ensure that it’s a model you can easily wear throughout the day. This can be done by getting the right size. Doing the opposite will only cause pain and set you back, while eating at your wallet for good measure. After all, if the waist trainer is too small, you’ll have to buy a replacement. By the time it arrives, you will have put your waist training on hold and lost any small results you may have made.

4. Work Out With Your Waist Trainer

By working out with a waist trainer, you’ll practically be feeding two birds with one stone. You’ll be shaping your waist by using the memory of the waist trainer while simultaneously burning calories through exercising. Plus, when you’re working out with the waist trainer, you’ll be sweating underneath it – which means you’ll be burning fat faster.

Wearing a waist trainer as you exercise can help you reach your goals, as it gives a boost to your workout intensity – all without requiring any extra effort on your part. The firm compression of the waist trainer will trigger the heat in your whole core, making you sweat a lot more and experience the workout at a higher intensity than usual.

However, bear in mind that not every waist trainer is designed for exercising. You will need something comfortable and made from a breathable material, such as the LuxxCurves waist trainers. Workout bands are mostly what you want to look into in these circumstances, as they were made specifically for this kind of activity. These products were made to be stronger in order to withstand rigorous movements.

Moreover, since waist trainers have properties that enhance your figure, just putting them on will make you feel more confident. They serve as a great motivator that may make you enjoy your workouts simply because you like the way you look. You’ll also get a better visual of where you’ll want to get with your workouts and your waist training in general.

A waist trainer can be used during a variety of exercises, but these are some of the favorites of most fitness enthusiasts:

Cardio Workouts

Cardio is likely one of the most efficient ways to burn overall fat around your waist, therefore enhancing the effects of the waist trainer. After all, when you want to slim down your belly, you’ll have to lose weight from the other areas of your body as well. As such, if you’re planning on biking, running, or working out on a cardio machine, wearing a waist trainer may double the effects.

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Workouts

Circuit sets of exercises such as burpees, sprints, jumping jacks, and other similar exercises may be your least favorite, but they’re likely the best at cranking up your heart rate. They tackle your core, and once it gets working, it makes you sweat and burn calories. Mixed with a good exercise-oriented waist trainer, you can easily use these exercises to your advantage and get that slim waist you’ve been wanting.

Strength Training

If you’re very serious about getting into shape, you may want to consider adding strength training to your routine along with your waist training session. Unlike HIIT workouts and cardio, strength training is often not as sweaty in itself. This means that while you’re toning your muscles, you aren’t necessarily burning any fat. However, by adding a waist trainer into your strength training routine, you should be able to fix that little problem.

Abdominal Workouts

This is a no-brainer, but if you want to make the best of your waist trainer, you should add some ab exercises to your workout. Crunches, leg raises, and planks are great here, but if you want to get that nice hourglass waistline, you should add some obliques too. Side planks (with or without leg raises), bicycle crunches, hip dips, standing twists, or Russian twists may easily help you shape up that waistline. You just need to be consistent enough.

Walks and Housework

If you don’t necessarily feel like doing any strenuous workouts, you may want to consider wearing your waist trainer while doing housework or perhaps taking your dog on a walk. The right waist trainer will still help you break enough sweat so that you can train your waist into its desired shape.

4. Stay Hydrated

You may be thinking: what does waist training have to do with drinking enough water? In truth, these two things are greatly connected. When you wear a waist trainer, you tend to sweat a lot, losing a lot of fluids from your system in the process. This can not only irritate and dry out your skin, but may also prevent you from achieving the results you want.

When your skin is well-hydrated, it becomes elastic enough to follow the lines of your waist. If you sweat and lose belly fat as a result of waist training, you may end up with a smaller-looking waist. However, since your skin is dry and dehydrated, it loses the elasticity necessary to retract. In the end, the skin may just end up hanging around your belly, looking worse than it did before.

This is why you need to make sure that you keep hydrated. Aside from drinking water, you may also want to add a moisturizing body lotion in the mix. This should add more elasticity to the skin and improve your results.

5. Stick To A Diet

If you wish to get the most out of your waist training, there’s no shortcut here: you need to consider going on a diet as well. Most people who wear LuxxCurves waist trainers have said that they achieved results much faster by having a balanced diet and consuming all the right foods. Unless you eat correctly, all of your efforts may be put to waste.

Ideally, when performing waist training, you should steer clear of processed food, sugar, alcohol, dairy, and gluten. These are to be avoided with pretty much any diet, but even more so when waist training. This is because these foods not only tend to be deposited in your middle area but can also cause acid reflux – something that can be made even worse as you wear a waist trainer.

Now to the foods you should eat: to see good results, you may want to add some vitamin A-rich meals to your system. This will help with your digestion and prevent most gastrointestinal issues (i.e. bloating and gas). Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that can not only improve your immune system but also help your skin stay in good shape.

Foods rich in soluble fiber (i.e. oatmeal, apples, nuts, blueberries, and beans) are also recommended as you waist train. These will improve your digestion, allowing you to shed those extra pounds. Don’t discard insoluble fiber either – meaning whole wheat, brown rice, fruits, etc. Fibers are not digested by your body, which means they’ll be less likely to come out easily.

Try to make your meals frequent as well. This may be easy as you wear a waist trainer, as it constricts you around the middle. Plus, by eating frequently, you help to curb your cravings and give the food more time to process.

6. Get A Waist Trainer Friend

Remember that time when you joined the gym with your friend, hoping you could lose some weight? Before, when going by yourself, you would often skip workouts, knowing you would “try again tomorrow.” No one was waiting for you (except perhaps the gym instructor), so there was no harm in skipping for the day. However, when you went with your friend, you motivated each other to go and shed some extra pounds.

The same practice applies to waist training. There may be times when you wish you could just take your waist trainer off and enjoy your freedom. However, when you see your friend wearing it, this will give you the motivation to do so as well. When they’re striving for the same goal as you, you’re likely to wear your waist trainer more and get the most out of it.

Summary

The effects of the waist training journey can differ greatly between individuals. A slimmer person may only shed an inch or so but may notice a much deeper curve in their waistline. Someone struggling with more belly fat may see even more results throughout the month, with some shedding up to two and a half inches. Likewise, its effects on the abdominal muscles may vary. It’s recommended that you mix waist training with a healthy amount of exercise and a proper diet if you want to see more visible results. Still, even without this, you may notice real changes.

LuxxCurves offers a variety of waist trainer types for every body shape, torso length, and purpose. Regardless of whether you need a waist cincher, a regular waist trainer, or a fitness belt, you can choose the most appropriate option for you. Just remember that if you wish to get the best results with the waist trainer, you should be consistent in wearing it and should always adjust the cincher to align with your comfort level.

SURPRISING FAST RESULTS

I started 25 days ago with a size L and 1 extender. My waist was 36". In less than a month, I've sized down to the first row of a M and my waist is 32 1/2". I'm officially hooked!

Perfect waist trainer

I love my waist trainer still making progress with it

Absolutely love

I am so pleased with this product. 10 out of 10. On top of amazing costumer service.

I'm inlove!

I am beyond happy with the results I am having so far! I started March 14th and I'm so excited with my before and after picture so far!!!! As a mother of 2 beautiful boys, I didnt think there was hope for my stomach! Well, I was wrong! I highly recommend!!

So Far So Good!!

I have only been wearing my waist trainer for about a month. I have gone from using the outer most eye hooks to the inner eye hooks. I love the way I feel I look in it, as well as how it feels on my body. I have not noticed a dramatic difference as of now, but I have lost approximately an inch off of my waistline.
I am excited and eager to start the next phase of my journey so...So Far So Good!!

If I would’ve known…

I’ll start off by saying that I failed to use their consultant fitting option- my fault. In which case I got this too small. Ended up reaching out asking whether I should exchange for a larger size or get the extender. They recommended the extender so that’s what I did. Unfortunately even with the extender, the zipper vest portion was so uncomfortably tight that I couldn’t zip it on my own. My partner helped zip it the first time and within 20 mins of wearing it the top clasp broke which has now made it impossible for me to keep the zipper up. I’ve tried to wear it without the zipper portion and it’s so bulky that I can’t wear it anywhere other than inside my home- it doesn’t hide well and bunches under even the largest sweatshirt. Pretty disappointed that I spent $100 to not be able to use it properly. My advice- use the consultant service. If you want the same item I bought and order too small, EXCHANGE it or it’s pointless to have the zip up vest for much more money.

Not good material

I've bought waist trainers from different shops and this material is by far the cheapest one. It is not stretchy, it doesn't tighten on your body, if i was to go smaller, I probably could but since it doesn't stretch it probably wouldn't close. Disappointed.

Love it but..

I love how the waist trainer makes me feel snug and shapes my body. The only problem I have is that I ordered a medium torso. I thought it was going to fit but I find that it does dig into my pelvic and bust area and can be a bit uncomfortable at times. I wasn’t too sure because I wanted it to cover my Fupa which it does but now it’s just really long. I guess I am a short torso! Looking forward to purchasing a new one soon so that I can be more comfortable! Other than that I love it.

Love Luxx

I ordered a medium long torso with extenders. In 15 days I am down two rows. The waist trainer is very comfortable and I am able to wear it most of my day. I have tried other waist trainers before. Luxx is definitely much more comfortable. It hugs my body just right. I look forward to seeing inches loss as I continue to use the waist trainer.

Sweet!

After ordering a medium length torso I decided to try this short (within a week of getting my first Luxx trainer). So glad I did. Though my torso (under bust to top of pelvic) measures 14" I am finding this short very comfy. My eight hour tour goes very fast each day.

I have a black paisley, short torso, L, in my cart waiting to be ordered now! This trainer is an XL and I can put my entire arm down the front which I am glad of because I do so to position the fabric behind the hooks after putting her on.

Still not surprised!

I have moved on from this trainer that you are asking me about (black paisley). I am now in a size XL with a short torso (galaxy) and I am l o o v i n g it. Not to mention it is too cute. My eight hours go by so very fast each day.

Looking forward to my "Come to Jesus" end of 30-day challenge, measuring, weigh-in early March.

Thanks yaw'll. Keep 'em coming. The education on YT and social media is invaluable. The transparency is great business practice. I already have a black paisley, short torso, size L in my cart ready to be ordered. So very excited. If yaw'll decide to develop more fabric designs I won't be mad. Wait, yes I will because then I'll order more. :-)

Very impressed

I’m very impressed by this waist trainer! I’m new to waist training and so far it has been pretty easy. I started with a 25.5 inch waist and in less than 3 weeks I’m already at 24.5. I’m excited to see how many inches I can lose off my waist.

Love this waist trainer!

This is my first time ever using a waist trainer and I'm absolutely loving it. I'm so glad that I purchased from this company. The waist trainer is great quality and they have a variety of very nice designs to choose from.

I purchased the short torso 9" new Flexi-Steel, Camo design in a 2xsmall with extenders, and it couldn't be more perfect.

Will definitely purchase from Luxx Curves again!

Amazingl, Super Comfortable@, Cute af, and Surprisingly Fast Acting

Girls It’s only been a month and I’m like 3 sizes down. This waist trainer is the real deal! For a trans girl like me looking feminine is everything and girl let me tell u this product will put the woahhh in woman!! Super excited!!!

Read all the tips

I like others thought I had the wrong size at first but make sure to read all the tips to be able to get it on lol. I also bought the extenders which have helped so much. I am slowly working my way down to not needing the extensions anymore and the smaller I get the trainer, the easier it is to move in it. I can move around in it better than some of my high waisted jeans!

Luxx Curves product review | TikTok

https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPdM3UfDJ/

I'm confused

I'm confused. The fact is that I reached the last hook at the smallest size - in 25 days, wearing a corset for no more than 3 hours a day, but this is still 67 cm in a corset (without a corset I am even wider), which is far from my goal of the waist 59 cm. I am extremely happy with my achievement, but absolutely at a loss what to do next, since I don't like lace-up corsets. I have reached the maximum result, but I have not reached my goal. I will look for a smaller corset.

My New Favorite Garment

Started out in the medium waist trainer with the extender on the middle hooks. Within two weeks I lost 1.5inches of my waist and am now holding on the first (largest) hooks on the trainer without the extender. I've definitely noticed a difference and feel so much more confident with and without my trainer on! It is so comfortable and easily worn for extended hours. If you are on the fence, please please give Luxx a try! You won't be disappointed. Stay consistent and just remember LOTS of water!

High quality waist trainer!

Very impressed with this high quality waist trainer! My waist is down 2 inches in 4-5 weeks wearing the waist trainer combined with good eating and exercises. Highly recommend!!!! If your thinking about ordering it, order it, you won’t regret it ;)

Looking snatched

I love my trainers, they have made such a difference in my body and figure! 100 days strong and still going, already ready to size down to an xxs!

Full back vest trainer review

The full back vest trainer is excellent quality and works really well; however, the strap that wraps around my arm, rubs up against my skin so for this reason, I decided to switch to the traditional waist trainer, which is amazing! My waist was 34” when I started 25 days ago and is now 32 1/4” …..this really works, highly recommend!!

Amazing product! A must have for EVERY WOMAN

This WT is very well made. Beautiful designs, sturdy great support team can't wait to achieve my desired figure

I can't even begin to explain how this actually works, but it works alright!!!

First off, I have only had my waist trainer for 19 days as of today, 11-9-2021. I purchased the Traditional Short Torso Waist Trainer 9″- Black / XL. When I received it, I could not get it around my waist to cinch it closed, it just wasn't happening and I was a few inches off from getting it cinched. I didn't need the next size up, so I purchased the extender set (2) in a pkg. I got those and put both extenders on and was able to get myself in the waist trainer but I was hooked on the 2nd extender on the middle row, so I had to use both extenders. Now I am wearing my extender at least 8 hrs. a day, a minimum of 5 days a week. After a few days, I realized I could remove one of the extender rows, so I was now only using one extender and was cinched in on the farthest row out. A few days go by and I am now cinched on the middle row. A few days go by and I am now cinched on the 1st row of the extender, which is the last row before I am able to remove the extender altogether. After a few days, I can now remove the extender completely. I am now cinching on the farthest row out on the waist trainer with no extenders. A few days later I am on the middle row and today, I was able to cinch on the last row of the waist trainer! How the heck is that even possible. The only thing that I can think of is that this waist trainer is stretching and making me think my waist is getting smaller. However I pulled out the tape measure and when I started this 19 days ago, my waist was 39 inches and today it measures at 37 inches! What the heck is going on here? How is this even possible people? I will now have to order the L waist trainer and my 21 yr. old daughter has asked me to gift her this waist trainer so she can try this out. All I can say is that this really works, but you need to wear it to get the results. Best of luck to you all, I shall be moving on to the Large waist trainer next. You have got to love this thing!

Hour Glass

Loving my Luxx Curves waist Trainer! Day by day as I wear it, my body molds more and more into the hour glass shape, and at the same time it's correcting my posture!
