  • 5 Products That Slim Love Handles (with Customer Testimonials)

    How to get rid of love handles with diet and exercise

    Love handles. Everyone hates them, and they’re reeeally hard to get rid of.

    Even women who are in excellent shape can store fat around their midsection. No matter how hard you work out, they are an especially difficult area to target.

    The secret to defeating love handles isn’t an insane amount of exercise or starving yourself. The trick is to work with what you have, eat and exercise sensibly, and dress for your figure. In this way, you’ll be accentuating your curves in the right places and tucking love handles away out of sight.

    Here are all of our best tips for getting love handles under control once and for all.

    Waist Training Effectively

    Waist training is a sure-fire way to fight love handles. It can be a part of an ongoing healthy lifestyle routine, and it hides love handles whenever you’re wearing your garment.

    To get the most out of waist training, we recommend wearing a waist trainer daily. Start out for just a couple of hours a day and then work your way up to eight hours or more. Over time your body will become accustomed to the way it feels, you’ll be motivated to stay on track with your fitness, and if you stick with it you’ll be able to size down!

    For the best results, wear a workout band during workouts and an everyday waist trainer or steel-boned corset for the other times of day, in order to get your full day of waist training in daily. Also, be sure to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise.

    Diet Tips for Waist Training

    We recommend the slow and steady, sensible approach to eating healthy while waist training (rather than trying fad diets). Stick to whole foods taken in small portions, while avoiding refined sugars and carbs. Drink a lot of water and avoid sweet drinks and alcohol. And be mindful when you eat—helpful tools include calorie-tracking apps and meditative practices.

    Eating healthy is the most effective weapon you have for losing weight, because it’s what you consume that adds pounds. If you have trouble staying motivated, wearing a waist trainer can remind you what your goals are so you can stay on track.

    Exercises for Targeting Love Handles

    In combination with a nutritious diet and regular waist training, you’ll want to follow an exercise program that burns fat and builds muscle. Combine regular cardio (especially HIIT) with strength training. Moves that target large muscle groups like squats and deadlifts are most effective because they require core strength and burn a lot of calories.

    You can also do more targeted core-intensive training, but don’t do core moves exclusively if you want fat-burning results. Remember that your body is a whole unit. Check out some of our workout suggestions.

    The Best Waist Trainers and Shapers for Love Handles

    Want more ideas for shapewear that solves love handles? Here are the top slimming garments our customers recommend and what they say about them:

    Workout Waist Trainer by Ann Chery:

    This maximum compression workout waist trainer is a customer favorite for good reason. It's perfect for slimming your waist instantly and providing the firm compression you need for effective daily waist training. Wear this garment at the gym or under your everyday attire. 

    "THIS WAIST TRAINER IS THE BOMB!!! I Purchased this Ann Chery waist trainer from Hourglass Angel and let me just say combined with my diet and exercise program in a little over three weeks I have lost 6 inches off my waist, lost most of my love handles and even melted most of my back rolls.

    Whoever said waist training does not work is a lie! True enough it may not work for you if you wear it and do not follow a diet or exercise program. This is not some magic shaper that gets rid of belly fat alone. YOU MUST DO THE WORK! I am very satisfied started at a size 42 and now I am going to purchase a 36! I am both happy and excited to see what more results I yield. I am hopeful for a flat belly by this summer and make it to 28.

    This waist shaper has also helped along with exercise to lift my booty! I will definitely be buying another soon! Only negative side is it causes skin irritation on my belly and a rash. It itches like crazy. I have to apply tons of lotion and A and D ointment on the daily. This minor mishap will not stop me from using but maybe somehow they can work on a better design to prevent the skin from getting a rash and discoloration. " –Tazaiyah

    Note from the Hourglass Angel team: to prevent skin irritation you can wear a tank underneath.

    Best Waist Trainer by Hourglass Angel HA102:

    Customers told us they wanted a better waist trainer for their unique curves, so we created this amazing plus size waist trainer. This cincher takes up to 3 inches off your waist measurements instantly. 

    "LOVE IT! This is amazing. It is like my love handles just disappeared, very comfortable, the quality is excellent, true to size. It is a little difficult to put on, but once you got it, it will be worth the sweat, haha :)" –Jonathan G.

    Cheap Waist Trainer by PureShape PS102:

    If you’re not quite ready to pull the trigger on a high-end waist trainer, you can get started using our most affordable workout band. It’s a great quality starter piece and it works! 

    "Amazing!!! I absolutely love my waist trainer. I'm a woman with a short torso and love handles. This waist trainer actually reduced my entire mid-section without looking lumpy from the back. It's comfortable and invisible under clothing. I wish I could post a picture. "

    Squeem Waist Cincher 26PW:

    This classic garment provides maximum slimming power for all shapes and sizes, from XS–5XL.

    "Amazing for postpartum stretched ab muscles! I bought this item after miscarrying my twins at 20 weeks from TTTS. My abs were separated from my uterus growing so fast with two growing babies and all of the extra fluid. This waist cincher works great to suck your abs back in together. It creates smooth waste lines eliminating any love handles! I'm currently 5 weeks postpartum and my ab muscles look like they have completely closed back up. It also helps with low back pain! I'm 5'2" and 110 lbs pre-pregnancy and 120 lbs postpartum and the size small is working great for me. I plan to use the size XS once I lose the extra lbs. I highly recommend this waist cincher!" –Rebecca

    Best Body Shaper by Vedette 104:

    This body shaper provides moderate compression throughout the torso and creates a slim, comfortable hold, for a beautiful figure from the bust to mid-thigh.

    "Although I sweat...This item is amazing!!!! It's like my love handles just disappeared it's such a trick. It's genius." –Emski

  • How to Avoid Pinching, Sliding and Rolling When Waist Training

    What to do when your waist trainer rolls down

    When you’re wearing a waist trainer, the goal is to have a slimmer, smoother midsection and a flat tummy. You want your garment to stay in place all day without pinching, sliding or rolling.

    However, we do occasionally get questions from customers whose waist trainers are doing just what they’re not supposed to do, which can be frustrating! If your garment isn’t staying in place, it’s an indication that it’s not fitting you correctly.

    In order to get the most out your waist training experience, you’ll want to have the absolute best fit. Here are some ways you can make sure that you’re getting your ideal garment. 


    Poor sizing is probably the most common reason why a waist trainer doesn’t fit correctly or stay in place. If it is too big, it can shift. If it is too small, it can be extremely uncomfortable, pinch and even start rolling.

    We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to get your size right!

    To ensure you’re getting the best size, take your waist measurement any time you order a new waist trainer. Use vinyl or fabric measuring tape, and take the measurement at the narrowest part of your waist, about two inches above your belly button. Make sure that the tape is level and that you’re not stretching it tight or letting it hang loose.

    Once you’ve taken your measurement, consult the size chart for the garment you want very carefully. Not all brands measure the same, and we’ve customized our charts. When in between sizes, always go a size bigger, NOT smaller.

    It’s also important to try on your garment at home before you start wearing it. Step into it gently and fasten it. A waist trainer that fits well will feel very snug, but it should not pinch or hurt in any way, which would indicate that it is too small.


    There are many different body types, which is why we like to offer many styles of waist trainers. Sometimes you may not be getting the most flattering results because you’re not getting a style that suits your unique dimensions.

    Here are some features to look for that can benefit different body types: 

    Two rows versus three rows of hooks: If you are a petite or straight figure, you’re probably going to fit better into a waist trainer that has two rows of fastening hooks. If you plan on dropping several inches over the course of your waist training journey, you may prefer three rows so you have more room to size down. The Best Latex Waist Trainer by Hourglass Angel HA102 offers powerful slimming on three rows of hooks from XS to size 5XL.

    Vest style: This style of waist trainer with shoulder straps is ideal if you have a larger bust or want more compression coverage for your back. If you have a high bust-to-waist ratio, you may want to choose garments that have adjustable straps; otherwise the top may feel too tight and the waist too loose.

    Steel-boned corset vs. cincher: Most people who are new to waist training start with a latex cincher that is secured with hook-and-eye closures, but if you want an even tighter precision fit with dramatic slimming effects, a lace-up corset may be for you. A corset is a good option for someone who is plateauing with their waist training. If you want to step up your game, we recommend the sexy and light Underbust Waspie Mesh Corset By Hourglass Angel HA201.

     Workout band vs. everyday waist trainer: Workout bands are constructed more durably and a bit shorter than everyday waist trainers, while everyday waist trainers are easier to conceal under attire and can be worn for longer periods. Try using both styles for different purposes, and you’ll probably be more comfortable while achieving better results. The Faja Reductora 3 Hook Workout Waist Trainer By Ann Chery 2023 is an example of a beautiful workout trainer that is selfie-worthy. 

    Compression Level

    Compression level can affect the way a waist trainer fits as well. Steel-boned corsets are going to give you the tightest fit because they can be tightened as much as you want and are reinforced with steel. When properly fitted they should not budge. Workout bands and everyday waist trainers have firm compression, but over time they may start to wear out or feel loose when you size down.

    The Hourglass-Effects Waist Trainer By Hourglass Angel HA105 and our other signature waist trainers combine the best of cinchers and corsets with a high compression latex core, reinforced with flexible steel boning, for the maximum compression you can get from a latex cincher.

    If your waist trainer isn’t fitting quite right, consider the strength of its compression. A high compression garment that hasn’t worn out will give you the most flattering fit and results without pinching, rolling or slipping around.


    Since women’s torsos are different lengths, waist trainers also come in different lengths. Workout bands and short style corsets can be great options for petite women, as they won’t pinch at the hips. The Petite Latex Waist Trainer by Hourglass Angel HA100 is a great option that comes with a short cut up to size 5XL.

    However, if you’re tall or have a long torso, you’ll probably prefer a longer garment that provides full coverage from beneath the bust all the way over the lower abdomen.

    Styling Tips

    If your waist trainer still doesn’t feel quite right even if it is a good fit, you may find that it is more comfortable if you wear a cami underneath. This will help absorb the sweat around your midsection and will also protect your waist trainer from your skin’s natural oils. You may also find it more comfortable and less likely to shift or pinch when there is a thin layer underneath.

    It can take a bit of research, trial and error to get the fitting of your waist trainer just right, but stick with it and you’ll love the results.

  • Why Our Mesh Steel-Boned Corsets are So Effective

    How effective are mesh corsets?

    Steel-boned corsets are some of our favorite waist training options, and one of the best things about them is that they come in so many fabrics and styles!

    Whether you want to use them for an ongoing waist training regimen or simply want to enhance your outfit from time to time, there’s a corset that will work perfectly for the occasion.

    We’re excited to introduce two stunning corsets from the Hourglass Angel collection designed to keep you curvy and cool. What sets them apart is their unique fabric: mesh.

    Comfort, Compression and Wow Factor

    The Underbust Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA2016 is a full-length underbust corset. Its supportive underbust cut and full torso coverage create a classic fit that will slim the waistline up to several inches, control and smooth target areas like the back and lower abdomen, and lift your bust.

    Like other steel-boned corsets, this garment provides slimming through powerful yet flexible steel boning built into the bodice, plus a lace-up back. Waist tape helps hold the garment in place. The difference is the breathable mesh that allows air to circulate and create a sexy look, without compromising garment’s slimming power.

    The full-length corset has a short version, the Underbust Waspie Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA201. This “waspie” style uses the same materials but is cut in a different way. While it is an underbust corset, the top is flat rather than curved, and the whole garment is a few inches shorter. This garment is effective at creating a dramatic cut at the waistline for a sensually curvy silhouette.

    If you’re not familiar with mesh style corsets and are wondering whether they’re for you, we’ve compiled a few common questions about what makes them different and how effective they are.

     Cotton, Satin or Mesh: What’s the Difference?

    Steel-boned corsets can be constructed from several different fabrics. The most common you’ll find are cotton, satin and mesh.

    Satin is a smooth, soft material used in many classic corset styles. Its shiny gloss creates an elegant finish, and a very smooth foundation for clothing to glide over.

    While satin is stunning, the only downside is that it is the least breathable style of fabric. If you wear it in warm weather or with several layers, you may find yourself a bit more hot and sweaty than you’d like to be. While perspiration is normal when you’re waist training, if it makes you extremely uncomfortable you may prefer an alternative fabric for different times of year.

    Cotton is a more comfortable fabric that is soft and cool against the skin. It is also more lightweight than satin. So while a cotton corset may not give the same glossy and smooth finish as a satin corset, it will help you feel cooler and a lighter, making it ideal in warmer temperatures. Since it is lightweight, it may also be easier to conceal under lighter clothing styles.

    Mesh is obviously the most breathable corset option because it is the only fabric that allows air to circulate underneath the bodice. Mesh corsets work well both underneath clothes or if you’d like to make a statement as outerwear!

    The Mesh Corset vs. Latex Waist Trainer

    There’s a lot of confusion out there when it comes to understanding the difference between steel-boned corsets and latex waist trainers, so let’s clear that up.

    Waist cinchers, commonly referred to as waist trainers, are most commonly constructed from latex. The way they work is by providing compression to your waistline by utilizing the strength of the latex. They stimulate heat and perspiration around your waistline as part of the waist training process.

    Steel-boned corsets work similarly, but instead of providing slimming power through latex, they use the structure of the garment, reinforced with steel boning and held in place with lacing. In general, since they can be pulled to a custom tightness, corsets can provide a more dramatic hourglass curve.

    The confusing part about cinchers and corsets is that both can be used effectively for waist training (wearing a slimming garment daily as part of an ongoing waist slimming regimen).

    The biggest difference you’ll notice between a latex waist trainer and a mesh corset is the breathability. Both styles will result in a slimmer midsection, but a latex cincher will create a lot more perspiration. While sweat is part of what makes waist training work when you’re wearing a cincher, it’s obviously not going to be your most comfortable option in a warm climate. A mesh corset thus makes an ideal summer waist trainer.

    Can You Sleep in a Mesh Corset?

    While not everyone cares to wear a corset overnight, it is a good way to log some hours wearing your waist trainer. For the best results, we recommend wearing one for at least eight hours a day.

    You might find a mesh corset to be a more comfortable option for sleeping in because of its breathability. Every sleeper is a bit different. The only way to know if it will work for you is to try it.

    How to Care for a Mesh Corset

    Mesh corsets should receive the same gentle love and care that we recommend for any corset in order to make them last in great condition. Here are a few tips:

    • Season, or break in, your corset before you pull the laces tight. You should wear it snug for an hour or so a day until the corset starts to mold to your figure like a glove, after about two weeks. See more: How to Season (Break in) Your New Corset.
    • Always handle your corset with care when putting it on or removing it. Loosen the laces generously so you can get in and out easily without warping the garment.
    • Clean your corset very carefully. Never machine-wash it; if it needs it, spot clean with a mild detergent and allow it to dry. You shouldn’t have much surface area to clean with mesh! If needed, take it to a dry cleaner.
    • Air out your corset after you wear it by hanging over a chair or hanger. Never store it in direct sunlight and make sure it is dry before you store it in a closet.

    Effectiveness of Mesh Corsets

    Some people wonder if mesh corsets are as effective at slimming as other fabrics because you won’t sweat as much while wearing them. The answer is yes!

    It’s true that you won’t stimulate heat in your core the same way you would with, say, a latex workout band. But since it’s not the fabric that makes a corset work but rather the structure with the steel boning and lace-up back, you’re still going to get dramatic slimming results that are comfortable.

    How to Size a Mesh Corset

    The most important measurement you should take for sizing a corset is your waist. Using vinyl or fabric measuring tape, take the narrowest part of your waist, about two inches above your belly button. Make sure the tape is level with the ground and is flat against your skin, but not pulled too tight.

    Follow our size chart for the corset you want. If your waist measures 27 inches, for example, you’ll want size 22 for an Hourglass Angel mesh corset. The waist measurement is not the same as the size!

    Note that since mesh corsets are thinner, you may be able to pull them tighter than other corsets. Be sure to try on your corset and make sure you have significant room to tighten it before you start seasoning it for wear.

    How to Use a Mesh Corset

    The possibilities are endless when it comes to all the ways you can style a mesh corset!

    First, let’s talk about how to put in on if you’re a corset newbie. Step into the garment and pull it up over your midsection with the laces in back (make sure it’s right side up!). With assistance from a mirror or a friend, gently tighten the laces, similar to the way you would tighten shoelaces, but from the top and bottom towards the middle. Tie the garment off at the center. Remember, the first few times you wear it you should be breaking it in and not pulling it tight until it is seasoned.

    You can wear this corset against your bare skin if you want to experience maximum breathability. It makes a sensual lingerie piece in addition to being a slimming undergarment.

    Some people prefer to wear a thin top underneath the corset for comfort and to prevent their skin’s oils from getting on the corset. This can help it last longer.

    A mesh corset is very light, making it ideal to wear under even lighter clothing. Use it for everyday waist training or to perfect your figure for special occasions.

    A mesh corset also makes a fantastic statement piece as outerwear. Style it over your favorite tank top or light blouse for a flirty, bold look.

  • Corset Lengths: Which Style and Fit are Best for You?

    What corset length is best?

    We love our corsets at Hourglass Angel, and we especially love how versatile they can be. They work for waist training, special occasion wear, statement pieces and powerful shapewear.

    Since there are so many different practical uses for corsets (and so many body types to wear them), they come in several different lengths, styles and cuts. If you’re new to corseting and don’t know which is best for you, here’s what you need to know.

    First Things First: What is a Corset?

    There are a lot of corset-like garments out there. It helps to know that they come in several categories including hook-and-eye closure cinchers (also frequently called waist trainers), steel-boned corsets and bustiers. Here’s the rundown on each:

    • Cinchers: These are underbust garments that typically use latex or other compression fabrics to provide the compression and can be adjusted by moving the hooks to a second or third row. They come in various lengths; short styles are typically best for workouts or petite stature, while longer lengths provide more coverage and compression for your whole midsection.
    • Bustiers/longline bras: These are an overbust style and provide all-in-one bust support and waist slimming. Typically they are worn as undergarments, especially for strapless dresses. Certain styles make flirty outerwear and costume pieces as well.
    • Steel-boned corsets: This is the traditional style of corset, which dramatically slims the waist using flexible steel boning in the bodice and a lace-up back that can be firmly tightened. While bustiers and cinchers can also use steel boning sometimes, this is typically a defining feature of lace-up corsets.

    For the remainder of this article we’ll mostly be referring to lace-up corsets when discussing length, although we’ll refer to the other types occasionally.

    Short, or “Waspie” Underbust Style

    Short lace-up corsets, sometimes called “waspies,” are very effective at creating a sharply defined waist tape effect. Since they provide less coverage for the lower abdomen and emphasize the natural waist, you can get a very dramatic hourglass result.

    A couple of our favorites are a mesh style waspie and short underbust corsets made from satin or cotton. All of these styles taper at the front abdomen while leaving the hips free.

    The Underbust Waspie Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA201 is a flirty mesh piece that is the most breathable short corset option. But it still uses the power of steel boning, waist tape and a lace-up back, resulting in maximum curve creation.

    Short corsets are a sexy way to add definition underneath your everyday clothing and can be used as part of an ongoing waist training regimen. Short corsets are also well suited to wear as outerwear, as they will fit easily over a thin fabric top. So if you want to dress up for Halloween or make a statement, a shorter style can be your best bet.

    Long Underbust Corsets

    A longer style corset is the way to go if you want to get more all-over slimming power from your corset. It will provide definition at your natural waist just like the short style corset does, but it won’t stop there. Longer corsets provide compression and shaping from beneath the bust all the way to the hips, providing coverage for the lower abdomen and preventing pooching.

    Long corsets are typically a favorite for waist training because of the all-over compression they provide, which will stimulate heat and perspiration over a larger surface area of the torso. This can be especially effective for combating love handles and muffin top. They will also provide the most posture correction.

    For this reason, long corsets are a favorite for everyday as well as professional attire and can be worn easily underneath a variety of styles, from casual tops and jeans to pantsuits.

    The Underbust Cotton Corset by Hourglass Angel HA202 is a longer style corset that provides full torso coverage and compression. It smooths out trouble areas including your belly, hips and back, and it hugs tightly for a smooth hourglass finish. Since its lining is made of cotton, it is also one of the more breathable corset options and feels soft against the skin.

    Latex cinchers also come in longer styles that are effective as shapewear underneath your clothes as well as an ongoing waist training regimen. In general, steel-boned corsets will give you a more dramatic slimming effect and may last longer, depending on how much you wear them.

    Curved Verses Straight Underbust

    You might notice that underbust corsets come in either a straight cut or a curved cut at the top. Often shorter corsets will have a straight top, although longer corsets can sometimes be cut this way as well.

    In general, curved underbust styles provide more coverage for the whole torso and support for the bust than straight top styles. Which you prefer really depends on what effect you are going for.

    If you would like extra support for your bust as well as coverage near your bra line, the curvy top is the way to go. If you prefer a bit more wiggle room around the top of the corset, want a dramatic waistline, and don’t require as much coverage for the lower abdomen and just beneath the bust, then a straight top is the way to go. It’s worth noting, however, that a corset with a straight top will also give you additional bust support and posture correction.

    The Underbust Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA206 is a flirty corset similar to the mesh waspie, but its curved underbust provides more support for the upper torso and will create a fuller looking bust as a result. It also stretches longer over the whole abdomen, giving you full coverage and slimming.

    Longline Bra Overbust Style

    If you want an overbust style with the slimming effect of a corset, a longline bra is the way to go. They can come in a variety of lengths, depending on what your slimming needs are.

    If you primarily want superior bust support with a strapless top or dress, a longline bra that provides more support and coverage around the bust will give you firm support that doesn’t shift. It’s similar to a normal strapless bra you may be accustomed to, but it will provide additional control around your bra line and lift for your breasts, for fuller cleavage. And because it lacks a traditional bra strap, you’ll eliminate any worries about “bra bulge” around the underarms and back.

    If you choose a longer overbust style, you’ll get the benefits of a longline bra along with some waist slimming effect. This style of shapewear is ideal for bridal attire as it provides a smooth, supportive foundation underneath many styles of gowns.

    The Bridal Shapewear Longline Convertible Busteir by Va Bien uses a combination of side boning, a hook-and-eye back closure and soft supportive cups to create a supportive and sexy garment that hides trouble areas around the midsection with providing a firm lift for our bust, making it an ideal choice for formal attire.

    How to Find the Ideal Corset

    While there are a lot of choices when it comes to picking the best corset, it doesn’t have to be a difficult decision once you narrow down what you are looking for. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself when shopping for the ideal corset. 

    • What occasion will you be wearing it for? If you’re dressing up for a special occasion, usually an overbust corset will be a good choice, although some women like the slimming power of underbust styles. If you choose an underbust steel-boned corset or even a latex cincher, make sure you break the garment in before the big day, which will also give your body the opportunity to adjust to the way it feels. Cinchers and steel-boned corsets are the best options if you want to start an everyday waist training regimen.
    • What are your trouble areas? Most people benefit from a slimmer waist, but if you need more coverage for your upper back or lower abdomen, you will probably want to choose a garment that provides coverage for those areas.
    • What result do you want? If you want a statement piece with a dramatic flair, a short, waspie-style corset will get the job done. If you want more coverage and slimming for your whole torso, a longer underbust corset will give you the best results. And if you want to get better results from your workouts, a cincher will be your go-to garment. In general, note that steel-boned lace-up corsets will give you the most powerful slimming results.
    • What style do you prefer? Sometimes, deciding on a corset all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Some people love the various styles of cinchers, particularly colorful workout bands. Others want to be able to wear a cincher or corset discreetly under clothing. Still others want a dramatic effect from the corseting, like the sharp results of a waspie, or the way that different corsets can be styled as outerwear.

    The best waist trainers for workouts

    Ready to get fit this summer?

    If you want to kick your workouts up a notch, one effective way to do this is with the right workouts and the right gear. A fitness routine of varying intensity that combines cardio with strength training will burn fat, while compression activewear will make you sweat harder and amplify your results.

    Below, we’ve compiled some of our favorite workout moves, weight loss and waist training tips, along with the best activewear, so that you can get the most out of your workouts this summer.

    No matter what fitness level you’re at, you can work towards your personal goals by incorporating these tips and products into your exercise routine.

    Ready? Let's do this!

    Waist Training Exercises for the Best Results

    To get the most out of wearing a waist trainer during your workouts, we suggest doing a combination of exercises that work every major muscle group, including your core, back, butt, legs and arms.

    You’ll also want to incorporate both strength training and cardio into your workouts—aim for 5 to 6 days a week for the best results. While you can occasionally do longer stretches of cardio on gym equipment, running or biking, you’ll also want to be doing varying intensity in order to burn fat. One of our favorite ways to approach this is with HIIT (high intensity interval training).

    The goal with HIIT is to get your heart pumping and your whole body sweating, which your waist trainer will help with. Check out this video to get an idea of what it can look like: 7 HIIT Leg Workouts for Strong, Sexy Legs.

    To replicate this workout, here’s what to do: Do 4 rounds of 45 to 60 seconds per exercise with short breaks between exercises, with a one minute between rounds, depending on your experience level.

    • Squat jumps
    • Curtsy lunges
    • Curtsy lunges with squat
    • Squat jump claps
    • Reverse lunge single leg lifts
    • 360 pulse squats
    • 180 squats

    Do HIIT workouts no more than 2–3 times a week to avoid overtraining and injury. When you’re not doing HIIT, you can still work on strength training and lighter cardio on your off days.

    Bianca Jade, a.k.a MizzFit, demonstrates a killer exercise routine: How to Maximize Your Workout with Shapewear.

    For this routine, you can do several sets of each exercise. Take a 30-second break between each set and a 1-minute break between each exercise. If you want to push yourself, repeat the whole circuit!

    • Bridge pose: 4sets of 20 reps
    • Leg lifts: 4 sets of 15 reps
    • Plank twists: 3 sets of 20 reps
    • Leg extension crunches: 3 sets of 20 reps
    • Oblique hop plank hold: 4 sets of 20 reps
    • Side crunch leg extension: 6 sets of 15 reps

    Stay hydrated: You’ll be sweating a lot, so be sure to give your body the water it needs to keep your muscles strong and your energy high. Drink half an ounce to an ounce per pound of water weight—and aim for more on the days you work out. Keep your water with you and take small sips throughout the day. Flavor it with fruit infusions like slices of lemon!

    Eat clean: It would be a shame to undo all of your hard work with poor eating habits. While you shouldn’t feel guilty about the occasional treat, prep your meals in advance so that you can avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Eat several small portions throughout the day.

    Get your beauty rest: This will help your body build muscle and give you the energy you need so that you’re not fatigued. Aim for eight or more hours a night.

    Be consistent: Not only do we recommend working out five days a week, but we highly recommend everyday waist training too! Keep the thermal activity in your core going throughout the day and watch the results. Aim to wear a waist trainer for at least eight hours a day (although be sure to switch out of your sweaty workout band to wear under your other attire).

    Make goals and track your progress: Whether you’re aiming for weight loss or want to tone up, take measurements and photos so you can stay motivated.

  • How I Used Waist Training to Fit Into a Smaller Bikini (Interview)

    Veronica's Waist Training Before & After Photos

    Veronica is a stay-at-home mom and a self-proclaimed "army wife" who wanted to surprise her husband while he was away on training. Her goal was to slim her waistline enough to fit into a bikini that was one size smaller than her current measurements.

    Veronica says she has always had trouble losing weight. But by wearing a waist trainer, she became more conscious of how much she was eating—and more motivated by the garment's instant slimming effect. She started seeing results within two weeks, and when her husband finally returned home, he had a big reaction. Read this one-on-one interview with Veronica to see what happened.

    1. Tell us a little about yourself.

    I am a stay at home army wife, currently living in Hawaii. I babysit a 3-month-old baby girl, so I’m usually on my toes most days. I enjoy hiking and grilling on the beach.

    1. Why did you decide to try waist training?

    My sister told me about your waist trainers actually. My husband was training in Louisiana back in February, and I wanted to see if he would see a difference in my body after using the waist trainer. Which he did! My goal was to look good in a bikini that I had bought one size smaller than my current measurements.

    1. What garments did you use, and why?

    I used the waist trainer Best Waist Trainer by Hourglass Angel HA102, specifically because that’s the one my sister had gotten for herself. Once she let me try hers on, I knew that was the one I wanted, just by how my body came together. It was perfect.

    1. What were your first impressions?

    My first time putting it on was a hassle. I didn’t think I was going to be able to clasp it together at all! I told my sister “I should’ve got a large because I can’t breathe!” We were both visiting at my mom's house when she helped me put it on. My back was facing the mirror as we pinned it, but once I turned around I couldn’t stop laughing only because I looked so funny. Literally like an actual hourglass! 

    1. What was your waist training routine?

    I would wear my waist trainer every day for a few hours, except on weekends. My usage did increase a lot! Day one, I barely lasted an hour in it. But now I can put it on from the second I wake up until it’s time for bed. Which caught me by surprise, big time, so I know I’m doing something right.

    1. Did the garment meet your expectations? How so?

    In a way, yes. It made my love handles more obvious—so I wish it would have pulled them in just a little bit more than what it did. I believe it only did so much because I got more comfortable wearing it, so not much difference was happening anymore.

    1. What were your diet and fitness habits during your waist training journey?

    Honestly, not much. I ate regular unhealthy food. My metabolism did change though. So my routine would be that I had to fast for as long as I had my waist trainer on. Which helped a lot in the end because the longer I wore it, the longer I was fasting. So when it was time to eat I wouldn’t eat much at all. In the mornings I do an at-home workout in my living room, shower, then put on my waist trainer. So I would say I was actively working out but definitely not eating healthy.

    1. In the past, have you faced any challenges with weight-loss and/or fitness?

    Yes, challenges in weight-loss most definitely! About two months ago I was weighing at my heaviest of 179. I finally got myself to 170 but could never break it. Now I’m at 165, but it’s so hard to go lower than that, and I don’t know why. If I put better work into it, then I know I could do it! I believe my waist trainer did help with pulling my body together and keeping my weight down. My weight goal is 145-150 so we’ll see!

    1. When did you start seeing results?

    About two weeks in. I was surprised with how fast I saw a difference. Now that I’m at my finishing point, I’m so obsessed with how my body looks. It may look the same, but in my own body I feel better and different.

    1. Has anyone else noticed your results?

    My husband most definitely can! When he got home from training, he hugged me and couldn’t believe that it was my waist he was holding. He asked me if I was hungry because I didn’t look like I’d been eating.

    1. What would you say to others who are thinking about trying waist training?

    Do it even if you’re having second thoughts about it. You’d be surprised what you can get out of it. Even a small change can make a big difference. Patience and time is all you need.

  • Summer Waist Training: How to Keep Cool in the Summer Heat


    Your waist training should regimen should year-round for the best results. But while more sweat is always good for workouts, summertime can be a challenge because of the extreme heat! After all, waist trainers do make you sweat more around your middle, which can understandably be uncomfortable if you’re not prepared.

    But don’t worry—we’ve got you covered, whether you’re slimming down for a wedding, getting your beach body ready, or just wanting to look hot in the hot weather.

    Here’s how to stay cool white waist training in the summer heat.

    Choose Breathable Materials in Your Waist Trainer

    Not all waist trainers are made the same, and one of the key differences is in the materials. Some of the most popular styles of waist trainers are constructed with latex, which can be very effective at providing compression, but will also cause you to sweat.

    If you’d like to skip some of the extra sweat, you may want to try a latex-free waist trainer over the summer months.

    The Slimming Waist Cincher Shaper by Leonisa 019624 doesn’t sacrifice slimming power even without the latex. It uses an elastic blend to provide a level of compression, over a powernet interior lining designed to keep you cool and comfortable. The outer layer is made from microfiber, for a soft and silky feel and maximum comfort.

    You can also effectively go latex-free with your workout band, so you can get an effective workout without being uncomfortably wet from perspiration. Try the Highest Compression Workout Waist Trainer by TrueShapers 1063. This workout band uses unique 3 Plus D Structure fabric to offer the perfect balance of comfort and compression. Steel boning and Therma-Boost Technology make help you sweat more in target areas including your stomach, hips and back, while the stay-fresh inner lining wicks away moisture so you can keep moving comfortable.

    If you want maximum slimming without the latex, we also highly recommend steel-boned corsets, which provide compression through with steel boning and tight laces rather than latex.

    The Underbust Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA206 is a steel-boned corset made from mesh—you really don’t get more breathable than that! But don’t worry, it still provides the maximum compression power you’d expect from a corset. This is for anyone serious about a corseting regimen no matter how hot it is.

    Wear Heat-Friendly Clothing

    The key to staying cool during the summer months, whether you’re wearing a waist trainer or not, is to choose fabrics that keep your body cool in the heat. Here are a few favorites that you can wear over your waist trainer while staying comfortable and cool.

    Cotton: This material is popular in all climates because it allows air to circulate easily through the fabric—plus it’s super soft. The natural fibers are also effective at wicking away moisture. 

    Chambray: This material is made from cotton but it looks like denim, so you can get the style of denim without the weight. It also often comes in a high thread count, which means that there is more opportunity to breathe.

    Rayon: This synthetic material works best in dry heat. So unless you’re going to be in an air-conditioned facility, stay away from it if you’re in a humid climate (unless you want to feel sticky). But the benefits are that it is a very thin thread that is delicate and drapes well.

    Light colors: You probably know that dark colors absorb sunlight, making you feel warmer. Stick to pastels and creams to stay cool.

    Linen: This is an ancient fabric that has kept people cool for centuries. It is a natural fiber of light color that naturally allows for breathability. If it gets wrinkled, spray your linen garment with water and smooth it with your hands.

    Fabric blends: Just like blends can make breathable waist trainers, blends of materials like cotton, polyester, spandex, nylon and rayon can effectively wick moisture away. Garments of blended fabric usually keep their shape well and don’t shrink. They are frequently used in athletic apparel.

    Wear Fewer Layers

    While everyone loves the versatility of layering in the non-summer months, no one wants to be draped in multiple layers when they’re hot. There’s an easy workaround with waist training.

    The Underbust Waspie Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA201, like the longer underbust mesh corset, is a very breathable layer underneath clothing. It can also be worn as a statement piece over the top of a light top, you can get slimming results along with bold style.

    Likewise, workout bands can be worn as statement pieces so you don’t have to mess with putting a layer over the top. The Petite Latex Waist Trainer by Hourglass Angel HA100 comes in several bright colors or leopard print, and is cut shorter so you have more room to move and breath.

    If you prefer to go latex-free with your workout band, one of our favorites is the Ultra-High-Compression Workout Waist Trainer by TrueShapers 1032. This eye-popping design will have you gym ready or selfie-ready—you won’t want to cover it up!

    Take Short Breaks from Waist Training

    From time to time you may want a break from wearing a waist trainer or corset. If you’re committed to wearing your waist trainer for at least eight hours most days and want to take a break in the evenings, or even for a day hear and there, you can still get great shaping and coverage for your midsection.

    Shaping camis are the perfect solution for anytime you want to look great but want a little more breathability and flexibility around your middle. Quality shaping camis will keep your midsection slim and smooth. You can wear one with an overbust design and built-in bra on its own as a sexy top. Or, you can wear an open bust design paired with your favorite bra, and wear it under a light fabric top or dress over the top.

    However you want to dress this summer, there’s a waist training option for you so you can stay looking slim but feel cool and comfortable.

  • How Waist Training Fit Into My Weight-Loss Journey (Interview)

    Natalia's Waist Training Before & After Pics

    Natalia is a stay-at-home mom who enjoys working out and staying fit. But even after two years of consistent exercise, she realized she was "stuck" with certain trouble spots, like love handles around her waist. That's when she decided to supplement her weight-loss journey with waist training.

    By wearing a waist trainer every day, combined with exercise and healthy eating, Natalia was finally able to start seeing the results she's been working toward. By week 5, she started noticing changes to her figure, including improvement to her obliques. Check out this one-on-one interview with Natalia to see how she did it.

    1. Tell us a little about yourself.

    I’m a stay at home mom to a 4-year-old and an Army wife. My favorite hobbies include spending time with my family and working out when I can.

    1. Why did you decide to try waist training?

    I decided to try waist training two months ago because when I lost a couple pounds a year ago, my “troubled areas” were still my obliques (love handles), and I needed something to help with that area.

    1. What garments did you use, and why?

    I used the “Highest Compression Workout Waist Trainer by TrueShapers 1063” and the reason I chose this garment was because I try to work out as much as I can, and I felt that would be more comfortable to use during my exercise.

    1. What were your first impressions?

    When I first tried on the waist trainer I was in my room in front of my mirror. My first impression and thoughts were “WOW, this feels amazing!” It wasn’t too tight and it felt/fit perfectly. 

    1. What was your waist training routine?

    I wore my garment in the beginning for about 2-3 hours, and as the weeks went by I would increase an hour. I also wore it before and during my workout.

    1. Did the garment meet your expectations? How so?

    Honestly, the garment helped a little, but didn’t really meet my goal. I definitely need more time and to work more on that area.

    1. What were your diet and fitness habits during your waist training journey?

    I was working out during the week for 30-45 minutes a day and during the weekends. I wasn’t really eating too healthy, but I was eating smaller portions and not eating too bad.

    1. In the past, have you faced any challenges with weight-loss and/or fitness?

    About 2 years ago was when I started my weight loss journey, it was going well until last year I was stuck. All I was able to do was maintain and build a little bit of muscle. Wearing the garment helped trim down a little fat on my obliques.

    1. When did you start seeing results?

    The first couple of weeks I knew I wouldn’t see results immediately and knew it would take some time. Around the 5th and 6th weeks, I slowly started seeing results.

    1. Has anyone else noticed your results?

    My husband and my friend were the only ones who knew about my challenge. They were both supportive and noticed some results in my waist.

    1. What would you say to others who are thinking about trying waist training?

    My tip to others who try waist training would be to definitely not expect immediate results. My words of encouragement would be “always focus on how far you’ve come, rather than how far you have left to go.”

  • How to Properly Care for Your Steel-Boned Corset

    How to take care of a steel-boned corset

    Steel-boned corsets are some of the most durable types of shapewear you can own. But you have to make sure you’re taking good care of them.

    Most other shapers provide compression through synthetic materials like latex and other blends. Traditional corsets are different because they are constructed with flexible steel strips called boning and are tightened with laces. The synthetic compression materials tend to naturally lose their elasticity over time, but that won’t happen with steel boning.

    Having said that, it is very important for you to take proper care of your corset so that it won’t warp or break. If you treat your corset with the appropriate care measures, you’ll enjoy its benefits for many benefits.

    Starting Out: Seasoning

    One of the most important things you can do to preserve your corset for long-term use is to start it out right. It is very important to go through a process called “seasoning” to break in your corset for a couple of weeks before you tighten it fully and wear it for more than a couple of hours.

    This process is important because it helps the materials mold to your unique shape. If you pull the laces tight too soon, you risk permanently damaging the corset. If you planning on wearing the corset for a special event, be sure to give yourself adequate time to break it in.

    Start out by wearing the corset snugly but not tight for the first three days, for no more than two hours at a time. You should be able to slip your fingers underneath. Then you can add an hour every three days. By the end of about two weeks, the corset should fit your torso like a glove. At this point you can pull the laces tight.

    Check out this post on corset seasoning for more details about the process.

    Care During Use

    Whether you wear your corset daily or just take it out occasionally, keep in mind a few tips to make it last:

    • Always make sure that you fully loosen the laces before you put the corset on and take it off. If the laces are too tight when you’re trying to get in or out, you risk warping the busks in the front.
    • Wear a cami or other light-weight top underneath your corset to protect it from lotions and your skin’s oils.
    • Store your corset over a hanger in your closet, away from light (after it has aired out—see below). Always make sure it is dry before you hang it. If you’re storing it for more than a day or two, you can put a plastic bag to protect it from dust and moisture.

    Cleaning Your Corset

    Just like most lingerie and undergarments, corsets need special attention when being cleaned. Never put your corset in the washing machine! Here’s what to do instead:

    • Air out your corset after you wear it. Since compression stimulates perspiration, it may be wet. Drape it over a hanger or chair and let it get some air. Once it is dry you can store it in a closet, but if you plan on wearing it the next day, this step probably isn’t necessary. Do not do this outside, as sunlight can damage your corset.
    • Spot clean if necessary. Use a mild detergent and a wet rag or sponge.
    • If you’d like to freshen it up, use a spray-on fabric freshener on the inside lining only. Then hang to dry.
    • From time to time you may need to take your corset to a dry cleaner.


    The laces on a high-quality corset are very sturdy and should last for most if not all of the life of the corset with proper care. However, if they do break, they can be replaced.

    If you do need to re-lace your corset, it can be helpful to take a picture of the original lacing so you can have a model to work from. The most important thing to remember is to make “X’s” from one end to the other, and to leave long loops in the middle of the back so that you’ll be able to tie off the laces at the waist.

    Rotating Corsets

    One way recommend to extend the life of your corset is to rotate it through your wardrobe with other corsets and waist trainers. You’ll probably find it practical to have several waist trainers of different styles for different occasions. For example, if you want to waist train while working out, always use a workout band rather than a steel-boned lace-up corset. Otherwise you risk damaging your corset, which is not designed for use during exercise.

    Rotating corsets is also a helpful strategy if you always want to have a corset that is clean, dry and ready to wear. 

    How to Know Your Corset’s Life Has Ended

    If you wear a corset regularly, it will eventually reach the end of its useful life. It should be fairly evident when it’s time:

    • It doesn’t fit right: over time, the corset may adjust—and so might your own body! If the corset just isn’t providing the compression it used to or seems to warp in places it shouldn’t, it’s time for a replacement.
    • It’s worn out or broken: you’ll know it’s time for a new corset when any of its components break, come loose or warp. This includes the steel boning, the busks in front, the grommets in back, or parts of the bodice that start to fray. If the laces break, they can be replaced; otherwise you’ll have to replace the whole garment.

    When you order a new corset, be sure you take new waist measurements and follow our sizing charts precisely, in case your waistline has changed. And of course, be sure to season your new corset properly before lacing it tight.

  • Top 5 Waist Trainers & Corsets for Posture Support


    One of the lesser-known benefits of wearing shapewear and waist trainers in particular is how it can benefit your posture while you wear them. As you can see in our before and after gallery and customer reviews, women are surprised and pleased at the way their posture improves, in addition to the slimming benefits.

    If you’re like most people, you may not be aware of your posture and how it can be affecting your health, confidence and wellbeing.

    Why You Should Care About Better Posture

    You’ve probably heard that good posture is important. But in an era when many people are slouched behind desks, hunched over a machine or carrying trays and other awkward and heavy items, it’s no wonder that so many of us have anything but good posture! And we’re suffering the consequences.

    Over the long term, poor posture can cause chronic back pain, which as any sufferer can tell you, affects pretty much everything you do and lowers your quality of life.

    Other adverse effects of bad posture include:

    • Decreased circulation: This can lead to the development of spider veins.
    • Negative mood and increased stress levels: Yes, simply from the way you hold your torso!
    • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The nerves in your neck and upper back control the function in your arms, wrists and hands, so bad posture can negatively affect these areas.
    • Pressure on your joints: Not only is there pressure on your spine, but your whole body can be bearing weight in the ways it’s not designed to, which means you’ll be more likely to get injured or suffer from arthritis later in life.
    • Decreased confidence and motivation: Just as poor posture can contribute to a poor mood, it can also psychologically make you feel less confident about your self-image and decrease how motivated you feel.
    • Poor digestion: When you’re hunched over, you squish your organs. This can lead to constipation and metabolic issues.
    • Fatigue: Your body naturally wants to be upright, so when you’re constantly slouched over, it consumes a lot of energy because your body will want to fight it!

    While the negative consequences of bad posture are alarming, the good news is that this condition can be easily correctible—and you can benefit immediately. Here are several ways that improving your posture improves your overall health and well-being:

    • Better movements and more energy: When your spine is properly aligned, you will do just about any physical activity better. With more efficient movements, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in your energy levels.
    • Better breathing: Your lungs will be less constricted with good posture. Fuller, deeper breaths mean you can better prevent and respond to stress and anxiety.
    • Increased confidence: Sitting or standing up straight makes you look more like an authority figure, which affects how other people view you as well as the way you view yourself.
    • Less pain and better health: Obviously, if you can improve your posture you can lessen the pressure on your spine and other joints, as well as improve your digestion.

    If you’re wondering what good posture looks like, here’s what Harvard Health says to look for:

    • Chin parallel to the floor
    • Shoulders even (roll your shoulders up, back, and down to help achieve this)
    • Neutral spine (no flexing or arching to overemphasize the curve in your lower back)
    • Arms at your sides with elbows straight and even
    • Abdominal muscles braced
    • Hips even
    • Knees even and pointing straight ahead
    • Body weight distributed evenly on both feet

    How to Have Better Posture Every Day

    Good posture is a habit, and it can be a challenge to change something that you do without thinking. But there are a few ways you can incorporate good posture-support habits in your everyday life.

    • Get up and move: If you’re at a desk job, you’ll alleviate the pressure on your back by getting up and walking around every few minutes.
    • Use supportive chairs that are ergonomically designed.
    • Avoid high heels: We know, we know, this isn’t everyone's favorite tip, but heels can wreck your posture. On the days when you’re going to be on your feet a lot, try to wear flats.
    • Strengthen your core: A lot of posture problems are related to weak core muscles. So grab your workout band and start hitting the gym!
    • Lose some weight: The more weight you are carrying around, the more difficult it is to hold good posture. All the more reason to get on a healthy lifestyle regimen, supplemented by waist training to maximize your workouts.
    • Wear posture-supporting garments: We’ll make this part easy for you! Here's how…

    Shapewear and waist trainers specifically can be very effective in helping you change the way you arch your back while sitting or standing. What makes changing your posture difficult is having to think about it all the time—and most of us just don’t have the brain space for that.

    Waist trainers and other posture-supporting garments apply compression to your midsection, which helps you to keep your back straighter (more on this below). Plus, these garments are easy to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe.

    If you’re not already wearing shapewear on a daily basis, here are some suggestions for making it a part of your healthy lifestyle routine:

    • At the gym: Wear a workout band to support your posture, sweat harder and get the most out of your workouts. This is a great place to start if you are new to waist training.
    • At work: Waist trainers designed for everyday use can be a staple part of your work wardrobe, whether you’re behind a desk or on the move. They will pull in your tummy and support your posture, making you look immediately more confident—not to mention making your clothes look more flattering on your figure.
    • Around the house: While dressing down in casual wear, you can also benefit from waist training. For the best results we recommend wearing a waist trainer at least eight hours a day. Over time, most people find they want to have at least two waist trainers they can rotate through their wardrobe.

    It may take some time to get used to incorporating a waist trainer into your routine, but once you’ve adjusted to the way it feels and looks, you’ll start to love your results.

    Top 5 Waist Trainers for Posture Support

    Waist trainers and corsets are an excellent way to support your posture because of the way they are constructed. Latex cinchers use compression to support your core and prevent you from hunching over. Steel-boned corsets do the same thing using steel boning in the bodice and a lace-up back.
    Here are some of our top picks:
    Waist Trainer Corset Vest by Amia A103: Our fan favorite waist trainer brand Amia does not disappoint with this vest-style cincher. Using flexible boning and latex panels, it tightly pulls in the core, secured with hook-and-eye closures that you can adjust to a tighter fit once you are ready to size down. But what really provides support for your posture is the open-bust and straps. Sometimes lack of breast support is the culprit for poor posture, so this style gives that extra boost that you can pair with your favorite bra.

    Waist Training Double Layer with Zipper by Vedette 940: Vedette is another tried and true waist trainer band that comes through with extra slimming and posture support power with this reinforced waist trainer. It also uses straps that provide support and coverage for the upper back along with optimal support for the bust. But what really gives it extra strength is the zip-up front, which goes over the hook-and-eye closures and ensures that the garment stays firmly in place for all-day slimming and posture support.

    Ann Chery Latex Waist Shaper Vest 2027: Ann Chery is well known for its slimming power, but this vest-style waist trainer goes the extra mile. Not only will it slim your waist up to several inches, but the wide straps help provide full back coverage and full bust support.

    Underbust Cotton Corset by Hourglass Angel HA202: We didn’t hold anything back when creating a corset that is comfortable, powerful in slimming and back support, and affordable. This steel-boned corset provides maximum slimming power with a classic underbust design that lifts and supports the bust. Waist tape keeps the corset in place, ensuring all-day support for your posture.

    Underbust Waspie Mesh Corset By Hourglass Angel HA201: With this corset you’ll get a lightweight feel that doesn’t sacrifice slimming and back support power. This breathable corset uses steel-boning and waist tape and a lace-up back to provide maximum slimming underneath a sexy, breathable mesh bodice. The underbust design provides optimal support for the bust, pulls in your core and supports the back in order to enhance your posture.

    Whatever posture-supporting garments you choose to incorporate into your life, make sure that you choose the garment that is best suited for your size and figure. Use our customizing size charts and take accurate measurements of your waistline for the best results.

    As always, we’d love to hear from you if you have any questions about how waist trainers can help you change your lifestyle for better, more confident posture.
