Want to train your waist? What is the “average” time?
THE OC Waist Training FAQ (Video Blog)
We’ve got even more information about waist trainers and waist training on our Waist Training 101: Everything You Need To Know article!
Hello OC Blog Readers and waist trainers! This must be one of our most challenging FAQ’s asked of our Customer Care Team. It seems everyone wants a finite timeline to waist training success. Anyone who has ever entered into a long-term commitment knows the path is different for each us.
If you pay for gym membership-would you expect the trainers to know when you will achieve your fitness goals? Of course not! The act of buying a gym membership doesn’t guarantee anything. How many hours a week will you work out? Will you adapt healthier eating habits? How rigorous will your workouts be? How consistent will your workouts be? Will your family genetics help or hinder your progress?
You can see how quickly each of these variables will affect your individual timeline. The same is true for waist training. How many hours a day will you wear your corset (this can range from just a few hours to up to 23 hours per day)? How many days each week? Do you plan to incorporate diet and/or exercise into your waist training regiment (as opposed to just the body modification aspect of waist training)? Will your genetics help or hinder your progress? I do not waist train, per se, but I wear corsets with some regularity at work (and for special occasions)
In short, there is no “average” time it takes to see results. We hear from customers who lose an inch the first week (out of their corset), I would not consider this typical, but it happens often enough to not be a fluke. Others find it takes weeks to notice even a small difference outside of their corset. Everyone notices their amazing new figure in a corset, but most who engage in waist training are looking for changes once the corset comes off. It is important to remember that even once you reach your goal, maintenance waist training is necessary to keep your new curves (for most people anyway-I had one gal comment on a blog that she has not corseted in two years and still has her modified waist-but that certainly is NOT the norm).
Waist training is not a sprint. It takes time and dedication to achieve lasting results-like all good things in life!
