Waist Training

Look, it's me in my corset...finally. ;)
Look, it’s me in my corset…finally. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hey! So remember that time a fewย of weeks ago when I started waist training? It was awesome! I wore my CS 201 mesh corset every day. I was wearing it at least 6 hours at a time and I kept it up for a WHOLE WEEK, lol. So, THAT’S when I discovered what is hard about waist training….it’s not wearing the corset, it’s actually making yourself put the damn thing ON!!!

I came into work after that first week, looked at it and thought, “I don’t really feel like wearing you today, Ms. Thang, I will just see you tomorrow….” then I had the same conversation with my corset for the next several days. THEN I felt really icky and bloated for a couple of days, and of COURSE I didn’t want to wear it THEN. Finally I told Ms. Thang that I was done with thinking about it and I would see her the following Monday, and I have no idea what happened to THAT whole week, but somehow we could just not connect. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Every day is another opportunity to make a new start though and I did that yesterday, and I’m back at it today with high hopes for the future! So here’s to second (and third and fourth) chances. Obviously I have no new measurements to report, but I am determined to have some in my next report, so stay tuned!

Hiya! I'm the Marketing Director here at Orchard Corset, which is pretty much the best place ever to work! (like you hadn't already guessed THAT!) I live in beautiful Washington state with a husband a few animals and some kiddos in the mix. I prefer margaritas (on the rocks with salt) but a mojito will do in a pinch!

    Oh Amy thats sad. I was considering the mesh for my first corset and you were going to be my guide. I fear I would give up too. No worries! I’ll start living vicariously through Cheri

      Sadly, I discovered that I just do not have the dedication required for traditional waist training. By day 4 I was giving my corset the evil eye when I came into work and by day 6 I was done. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The main issue for me is that I spend almost all day sitting at my computer and I have a specific way that I like to sit which involves me being hunched down in my chair with my feet up. It is enough to make a chiropractor pull her hair out, but it is a LONG time habit! Wearing a corset actually forces me to sit with correct posture and while I can totally accept that it would be REALLY good for me, I’m just lazy and don’t want to change. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So there you go…”confessions of a band wagon waist trainer”, lol.

    I can understand not wanting to wear it while feeling icky and bloated. I am actually feeling the same way now. I do have my corset on, but I am still seasoning mine. I wonder what waist trainers do in that case? Do they just not lace as tight?

      I bet that answer is different for everyone! I would think it is never OK to be miserable-so do what you have to do ๐Ÿ™‚ Loosen it up or just take it off for a bit.

      Thanks, Jess! I was very surprised at the mental push back I gave myself. Pretty funny, actually, kind of a similar conversation that I have with the donuts at Fred Meyer, except I’m telling them to stay IN the bakery case! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Somehow they end up in my belly anyhow! Just the opposite with the corset it needs to be AROUND my belly, but it stays on the shelf!

We love to hear from you!
