For those readers that may have arrived here somewhat unfamiliar with the concept of waist training, it is a form of body modification. We like to make the comparison to wearing braces to straighten your teeth. By continually applying pressure to your lower ribs and internal organs you can achieve a shift in both that will eventually give the you an hourglass shape when you are not wearing a corset. However after you’ve achieved your desired waistline, just like wearing your retainer after having your braces removed, you’ll have to continue with some “maintenance corseting” to retain the hourglass shape you worked so hard for. Latex cinchers and plastic boned fashion corsets aren’t appropriate for waist training as they are NOT able to apply the required pressure to the appropriate areas.
This week’s featured waist trainer is Brittany C! Thanks, Brittany for sharing your waist training journey with us!
How long have you been waist training?
How many days/week and hours/day do you wear your corset?
5 days a week.
What was the measurement of your uncorseted waist when you started and what is it now?
It was 33″ and now it is now 29″.
What was your biggest waist training challenge?
My biggest challenge was learning to remember to breathe and not to rush.
What advice do you have for someone just getting started waist training?
The best advice is to go slow and only do what’s comfortable. Waist training should never be a painful experience.
Do you typically stealth corset or do you wear your corsets over your clothes?
I usually wear my corset under my clothes when I go out. When I’m at home corseting, I wear my corset on the outside of my clothes.
What do you like to wear when you are corseted?
I usually just wear a t-shirt and leggings.
Have you changed your diet & exercise habits while waist training? i.e. are you losing weight while you are waist training?
When I started corseting I started exercising three times a week focusing on my tummy area. I also started doing yoga twice a week. I didn’t change my eating habits or diet at all though.
What has been your favorite part of corseting & waist training?
The results came so much faster than just eating right and working out. It also helped with my posture during my desk job so much!
