  • NEW! Introducing the Hourglass Angel Collection

    New Hourglass Angel Waist Trainers

    Here at Hourglass Angel, we love celebrating the uniqueness of every woman. Every single person has beautifully different curves and a natural shape that is gorgeous. Our goal is to create solutions for every woman’s body shape and unique curves.

    That’s why we developed the new Hourglass Angel Collection of waist trainers. After receiving feedback from many customers, we were able to cultivate shaping solutions based on your body type, lifestyle, and goals. Whether you’re tall, short, petite, plus-sized or anything in between, we’ve got what you need to make your waist training experience a success.

    Check out these five NEW waist trainers and discover your personal solution to your shaping needs.

    Hourglass Latex Waist Trainer

    New Hourglass Angel Waist Trainer

    Latex cinchers are among our most popular sellers. So what makes this one different? There are a couple of features that you can only find at Hourglass Angel.

    First, not only does this garment rely on latex for maximum compression; it also uses flexible steel boning in its construction. This ensures that you can maintain your hourglass shape while still being able to bend and move easily. It’s like combining the comfort and convenience of a latex cincher with the shaping power and durability of a lace-up steel boned corset. Like all of the very best waist trainers, it will take 1–3 inches off your waistline instantly, while providing the firm compression that stimulates thermal activity and perspiration in your core. It’s ideal for many types of workouts and will help you sweat harder. Yet you won’t be sacrificing comfort: while the core of the garment is constructed with latex, you’ll enjoy the softness of cotton lining that will keep you cool and comfortable.

    Second, this waist trainer comes with three rows of large hook-and-eye closures. This feature makes it easier to cinch up and creates a strong, secure fit. Sizing down your cincher as your body slims down is simply; simply fasten the hooks on the next row. Since you have more room to size down and a more durable garment with steel boning, you can use the same waist trainer for an extended period of waist training. It truly does slim down with you.

    Petite Latex Waist Trainer

    Petite Latex Waist Trainer

    If you’re a woman on the shorter side, or with a short torso, one of the challenges with waist training is that many of the standard size garments are just too long for your figure. If you find that a typical waist trainer is uncomfortable because it jabs at your ribs and hips, you'll want a garment that is designed with the petite woman in mind. This waist trainer is cut shorter so that it is more comfortable for the petite figure. It is also a great option if you aren’t petite but just want to get that extra slimming and compression right around the waistline.

    Like the regular Hourglass Latex Waist Trainer, the petite option is constructed with maximum compression latex and reinforced with flexible steel boning. This ensures maximum effectiveness as well as comfort and flexibility for your workouts. It also uses three rows of large hook-and-eye closures for easy fastening and the capability to size down with you as your drop inches from your waistline. This is the perfect supplement for any healthy lifestyle routine, whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply want to intensify your workouts and create an hourglass shape.

    Curve Creator Latex Workout Band

    Hourglass Angel Workout Fitband

    One of the waist training needs we heard about from our customers is convenience. We get it—we’re busy women and we need no-fuss solutions when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle each and every day. We’re excited to introduce a new workout band that is highly effective and easy to use.

    Put on this waist trainer in seconds with its easy-to-use double Velcro closure. This is significantly faster to use than traditional hook-and-eye closure waist trainers. It’s the perfect solution for the grab-and-go woman who doesn’t have time to fiddle with getting dressed for a quick workout. And the convenience doesn’t sacrifice effectiveness. The double layers of thick Velcro provide a strong, secure fit that will stay snug no matter how intense your workout is.

    This workout band is just as effective as our other workout waist trainers. Its latex core boosts the thermal activity of your core and intensifies your perspiration around your midsection, ensuring a killer workout every time. The cotton-spandex lining absorbs moisture and feels soft against the skin.

    Sculpting Vest Latex Waist Trainer

    Sculpting Vest Waist Trainer

    Some people love the extra support that you can get from a vest-style waist trainer, which is why we simply had to include one in our new line. This sculpting vest has all the same features as our standard Hourglass Latex Trainer with the added benefit of adjustable shoulder straps, which provide extra support for the bust and coverage for the upper back. This is an ideal solution if you have a curvy-on-top natural shape. Its three rows of large hook-and-eye closures provide ease of use as well as a customizable fit that slims down with you. And of course, it features flexible steel boning that makes our collection unique.

    Core Slim Latex Waist Trainer with Zipper

    Hourglass Angel Collection Zipper Waist Trainer

    Last but not least, say hello to this unique waist trainer with double layers of slimming support. Cinch up with one of the three inner rows of large hook-and-eye closures, and then zip up for a firm hold. Like other waist trainers in this collection, it uses our signature flexible steel boning for power shaping. This versatile waist trainer is ideal for wear under any outfit: professional, casual, you name it. It also is ideal as a postpartum waist trainer and will help new moms regain their pre-baby figures faster. Alternate it with the workout band of your choice and you’ve got a waist training solutions tailored just for you.

    We hope you enjoy the new collection! As always, we love getting your feedback and answering any questions when you contact the shapewear experts on our customer service team.

  • Waist Training Exercises to Try at Home

    Sample Waist Training Exercises

    Ready to slim down your midsection? Getting an hourglass waistline doesn’t require endless hours at the gym with expensive equipment or a restrictive diet. But what you do need is a dedication to waist training, eating smart and choosing exercises that you can do at home (or just about anywhere).

    Waist training is the practice of wearing a waist trainer daily, which can help you slim your waistline instantly, while also supplementing smart eating habits and an exercise plan. Waist training works by stimulating perspiration and thermal activity in your core, which can be especially effective at intensifying your workouts.

    At Hourglass Angel, we believe that not only is it possible, but just about anyone who wants to try a waist training regimen can have fantastic results with the right approach. If you’re wondering how to get started, here’s how to jump-start your waist-slimming plan, with simple but effective exercises that you can try at home.

    The Best Exercises for Waist Training

    There are many different exercises you can try with a waist trainer. The only ones we don’t recommend are any types of crunches. If you insist on doing crunches or similar torso-bending moves, take the waist trainer off during that portion of your workout.

    Depending on your preferences, be mixing in at least three days a week of allover strength training exercises with medium to high-intensity cardio—for 30–60 minutes a day, five days a week. Some people like to spread out different muscle groups over five days, while others like to do more intensive strength training on three days, with cardio on the rest days. Just be sure not to work out the same muscle groups two days in a row (not counting cardio).

    Here’s a roundup of the most effective exercises you can do at home with a waist trainer.

    You can also wear a waist trainer very effectively with just about any type of cardio including running, walking, biking or on your favorite piece of fitness equipment.

    Finally, don’t forget to include all-over stretching as a part of your regular fitness routine, so that your muscles can heal and stay limber. You can try yoga or any relaxing routine that you prefer.

    Choosing the Right Waist Trainer

    In addition to having a great workout plan, another important factor in a success waist training regimen is having the right garments.

    For the best results with your workouts, you’ll want to use one of our workout bands. These are constructed with a more durable design so that they’ll hold up no matter how rigorous your workout is or how hard you sweat. You can choose a traditional band style, or for additional support and coverage for the bust and back, you may prefer a vest style.

    While some people choose to wear a workout band for the rest of the day, we actually recommend that you choose an everyday style, which will provide firm control and be comfortable enough to wear all day once you’ve grown accustomed to it. Wearing at least two different waist trainers also allows the latex to rest and retain its elasticity, and you can keep them fresh and clean.

    There are many different styles of waist trainers to choose from; what works for you depends on your personal preferences, body type, and goals.

    • Steel-boned, lace-up corsets are latex-free options with a classic look that are completely customizable and easily size down as you slim down.
    • Waist training vests provide additional support for the bust as well as more complete coverage for the upper back, which can be ideal for women with larger busts. Be sure to choose an option with adjustable straps if you have a high bust-to-waist ratio.
    • If you are petite or if you have a long torso, you may want to consider options better suited for your body type. There are also some garments that have more options in plus sizes.
    • Most latex cinchers hook up in the front; some have two rows of hooks and some have three. You may prefer three if you plan on sizing down considerably as part of your waist training goals.

    It’s also very important when selecting your ideal waist trainer to get the correct size. Take the measurement at the narrowest point of your waist, where there is a natural bend above your belly button. Use fabric or vinyl measuring tape and lay it flat on your skin, keeping it parallel with the floor. It shouldn’t be so tight that you can’t fit a couple of fingers underneath.

    Be sure to follow the sizing chart of your garment of choice exactly. We have carefully curated and tested every waist trainer that we sell and have adjusted the sizing charts accordingly. The sizing can vary a bit by brand and style. If your waist trainer has number sizes, don’t mistake the garment size for your waist size, because they won’t be the same.

    Getting Started with Your Waist Training Regimen

    If you’ve never tried waist training before, there can be a bit of an adjustment period when getting started. Don’t simply jump in without breaking in your new garment and letting your body adjust to the way it feels.

    Before you even begin, make sure that your waist trainer has a great fit. If it fits correctly, you should love the way you look immediately after putting it on. It will feel very tight, but you shouldn’t have to yank it on or feel extremely uncomfortable. These are indications of a poor fit.

    It can be a little tricky getting waist trainers on the first time; see here for detailed instructions on how to put on a latex cincher and corset, plus how to break them in. It’s especially important that you wear a corset loosely several times before you begin tightening the laces fully; otherwise, you risk warping the whole garment.

    Once you’ve tried on your waist trainer and it’s broken in, it’s time to jumpstart your waist training plan. Your goal is to be wearing your waist trainer for at least eight hours every day, for a maximum of about twelve hours. It takes time to build up your endurance to this amount of time, but if you stick with a daily habit, it shouldn’t be a difficult transition after about a month or so.

    Here is an example schedule of what a beginner’s waist training regimen might look like:

    • Day 1:
      Get a feel for your waist trainer by wearing it for about an hour. Test it out in different positions: sitting, standing, walking, etc. Be sure to take some “before” selfies so you can track your waist training progress. Today might also be a good day to try out some different outfits and see what looks most flattering with your new hourglass waistline.
    • Day 2:
      Aim for two hours today. You should be starting to get a feel for it.
    • Day 3:
      You don’t have to wait for today, but if you haven’t yet, try working out in your workout band. Go for a brisk walk or try some other type of cardio so you can grow accustomed to how it feels. You should have a waist trainer on for about three hours today.
    • Day 4:
      Your goal is four hours total waist training today. If needed, break it up into two sessions. Today is also a great day to test out some of our recommended strength training exercises. From here on out you will want to be aiming to work out five days a week with a health mix of strength training and cardio. If you’re not in the habit of exercising it will take time for you to build up your endurance, but just remember that getting and trying it is half the battle.
    • Day 5:
      You guessed it: five hours of waist training! You’re going to be sweating more around your midsection, so be sure you’re getting adequate water. Measure out at least 64 ounces a day. Be sure to get in some cardio again today.
    • Day 6:
      You’re almost all the way there to a full schedule of waist training! Do some more strength training.
    • Day 7:
      Take a day off and congratulate yourself for making it this far, unless of course you’re pumped up and want to keep going.
    • Day 8–14 and beyond:
      This whole week, you should be settling into a consistent waist training routine. By the end of the week, you should feel pretty comfortable wearing your waist trainer for at least eight hours daily.

    By the end of the month, we recommend taking some “after” photos. You might even need to size down your waist trainer, so keep up the great work!

  • Tips for Sleeping in Your Corset

    Tips for Sleeping in Your Corset – Hourglass Angel

    One of the challenges that comes with regular waist training is finding the time to stick to the commitment of 8–10 hours a day. While some people have the opportunity to wear their corset or cincher during the day hours, for others it can be difficult (for example, during the summertime when you’re wearing certain cuts or fabrics that don’t really work with most waist trainers).

    If this the case for you, you may have another option.

    Serious waist trainers know that one way to get in more hours wearing a corset is to wear it while you’re sleeping. It might sound odd, but there are several reasons you might want to try it:

    • You are serious about waist training and want have a waist trainer on as much as possible. While we don’t recommend an around-the-clock waist training schedule, overnight can be a convenient opportunity to get in more hours.
    • You can’t wear your corset as much as you’d like during the day. This could be for a variety of reasons such as your line of work, your required style of attire or even your preferences. Again, the night hours provide a convenient time to get in the recommend 8–10 hours of waist training per day.
    • You have already reached your goals with waist training and would like to maintain your waistline without having to wear it during daytime hours.

    Whatever your reason, waist training while you’re sleeping at night is definitely doable. However, if you’d like to try it, consider that your experience can vary quite a bit depending on how you sleep and what kind of waist trainer you decide to wear.

    Here are some different tips about what to expect with nighttime waist training and how to get the most out of it.

    Different Sleepers, Different Experiences

     How do you sleep? Do you roll around a lot or do you lie still most of the night? Are you a heavy sleeper or do you wake up at the slightest noise or disturbance? Do you have a firm mattress or soft mattress? Do you have a fluffy pillow, flat pillow or now pillow? Do you sleep on your back, side or tummy?

    All of these questions can affect your experience sleeping in a corset. You may not know what your particular challenges might be until you try it, but here are how these different factors can affect nighttime waist training.

    Soft Versus Firm Sleeping Surface

    The type of mattress and pillows you have can greatly affect the way you sleep. While the choice of mattress hardness is largely a matter of personal preference, know that when your torso is corseted, it is going to be stiff and straight. You may need to adjust the amount of cushioning you have accordingly so that you are more comfortable. Consider the various sleeping positions and how they might be affected when wearing a waist trainer…

    Back Sleepers

    If you normally sleep on your back, when wearing a waist trainer you may find that your pelvis and hips can sag down, particularly if your mattress isn’t very supportive or dips in the middle. The key to making your sleep experience more comfortable is to support the curve in your lumbar area, in the lower back. Use small pillows or rolled up towels beneath the small of your back as well as under your knees. This will take the pressure off your back and help distribute your body’s weight more evenly.

    Side Sleepers

    This position can be somewhat awkward when you’re wearing a corset because you’ll find yourself trying to keep your balance due to the rigidity of your torso. You may need to engage your core muscles to maintain that balance, which can grow uncomfortable and may prevent you from getting enough sleep. You may also find that there is a big gap between the corset and the mattress. Depending on how firm your waist trainer is, your hips can shift in a way that is not very comfortable for a solid night’s sleep.

    The solution again is to provide some cushion in order to relieve pressure caused by the rigid curves in your torso. As for back sleepers, a small pillow or towel roll can do the trick. Place it between your waist and the mattress to keep your spine straight with your hips properly aligned. You might also be more comfortable if you place a pillow behind your back to prevent rolling over. And, as anyone who has ever been pregnant could tell you, you can relieve additional pressure on your hips and back by placing a towel or pillow between your knees. You might even enjoy a full body pillow, which you can use in a couple of positions to support your hips and back.

    Tummy Sleepers

    If you tend to sleep on your tummy with your head turned to the side, there are a couple of considerations that can make your overnight experience in a corset more comfortable. First, you’re very likely be more comfortable in a latex cincher as opposed to a steel-boned corset with busks that clasp in the front. Second, you may experience more pressure on your neck since the corset prevents your spine from curving as much as it would otherwise. To prevent this discomfort, you will probably prefer sleeping without a pillow. If you need a softer surface to lay your head on, try a pillow-top mattress.

    Other Potential Issues

    Since a waist trainer provides a somewhat unique sleep experience, it isn’t uncommon if you experience the following:

    Acid Reflux

    It makes sense that, because your midsection is more restricted and you’re lying down, stomach acid might make its way into your esophagus. There are a couple of ways to prevent this. First, don’t eat any food before going to bed; in particular, steer clear of acidic and sugary foods. You should finish your last meal or snack of the day at least two to three hours before you lie down for the night. Second, try elevating your torso so that you can use gravity in your favor in keeping the stomach acid down. You can use extra pillows or a wedge, on top or even below the mattress. 

    Nighttime Bloat

    Have you ever noticed that your abdomen feels a little bit fuller at nighttime? That’s because when your body is resting, your nervous system is getting to work in what’s often referred to as “rest and ruminate” mode. Blood flow is directed away from your extremities and towards your core and your internal organs so that you can fully digest your food and do daily maintenance on those organs.

    To remedy the discomfort caused by this slight swelling, you’ll want to either loosen your corset or wear one that is already a little bit loose. If you have a latex waist trainer that has room to loosen, simply hook it up on the looser row. If you have a lace-up corset, simply don’t pull the laces as tight. In general, if you have an older waist trainer that you don’t use as much anymore, this might make the perfect nighttime solution.

    Wear and Tear

    Some nighttime corset wearers find that their waist trainer wears out faster. This might happen for several reasons. First, there could be additional friction from rolling around. Second, your corset could come into contact with more oils from the body, which have accumulated on the sheets and can wear down the color of the outer fabric (which may or may not be a problem depending on how you like to wear it). Third, corsets are designed to hold the body in a neutral standing position rather than a reclining one. Lying down in a corset could put uneven stress on different panels of the corset.

    This isn’t a huge concern if you dedicate one of your waist trainers exclusively for sleeping in. It’s another reason why you might want to save your old, looser fitting corset or cincher for nighttime use.

    The Best Waist Trainers for Nighttime Wear

     In general, waist trainers are not always designed for sleeping in, so you might have to just find the style that works for your distinct sleeping patterns and environment. But here are a few things to keep in mind when trying to figure out what will work best for your situation.

    • Older, larger, worn garments are probably going to be more comfortable, for multiple reasons mentioned above.
    • If you don’t have an old waist trainer to use, you might prefer a no-closure option.
    • There are benefits and drawbacks to using a steel-boned corset. On one hand, depending on how you sleep, you might find it more rigid, or that the busks in front are uncomfortable. On the other hand, it’s easier to adjust the tightness to exactly where you want it to be.

  • How Sitting All Day Hurts Your Body and What To Do About It

    2-11-2017-blog-graphic

    In the U.S. we hear a lot about our health problems and the blamed culprit is usually our diet and lack of exercise. What many people often forget, however, is how many of us are also sitting for long stretches every day as a result of the modern professional environment, which consists primarily of sitting at a desk all day.

    Even if you exercise for a few minutes each day, it is difficult to offset the detrimental effects of constant sitting. Our bodies were designed to be in constant movement, not just 30–60 minutes a day. The average American adult spends 9–10 hours a day in a chair, resulting in a variety of negative consequences to their health. (See this article for a more in-depth overview.)

    One of the health issues that we talk about frequently at Hourglass Angel is back health. Here’s what a sedentary lifestyle can do to it:

    Neck and shoulder strains: if you spend any amount of time in front of a computer, you probably know what this feels like. You may tend to hold your neck and head forward; in addition you might cradle a phone to your ear. As a result your cervical vertebrae may suffer strains, which over time can lead to permanent imbalances. In the immediate aftermath you may suffer from chronically sore shoulders and back.

    Back pain: When you’re sitting you put more pressure on your spine than when you’re standing; it’s even worse when you’re hunched over a computer. An estimated 40 percent of people who suffer from back pain spend long hours in front of a computer screen each day.

    When you move around, the disks in your back expand and contract, which allows them to absorb blood and nutrients. But when you’re sitting, these disks are compressed. Over time they can lose their flexibility and even become herniated. Ouch!

    It’s a sobering fact that a desk job can be so bad for your health, even if you exercise regularly. But don’t despair; there are a few steps you can take to combat the effects of this kind of work environment.

    How Wearing a Waist Trainer Help Your Back

    While many people are attracted to waist trainers because of the benefits of a smaller waistline and a thinner appearance, there are other benefits as well.

    Wearing a waist trainer forces your torso to keep a straighter posture. Wearing a compression garment for an extended period provides back support because of the binding and cinching effect. The boning inside a cincher or corset also provides firm abdominal support, which creates a constant reminder for you to sit up straight throughout the day.

    (Bonus: you’ll also be encouraged to have better portion control during snacks and meals, which could help curb the weight gain that goes hand in hand with long hours of sitting.)

    The key to getting the most back-supporting benefits from your waist trainer is wearing one that fits correctly. If you choose one that is too tight, not only will you be extremely uncomfortable, but you won’t be doing your body any favors by smashing your abdomen. Be sure to consult our sizing charts and follow these tips for choosing the best waist trainer for your shape, size and lifestyle.

    It’s also very important to use waist training as a complement to a healthy diet and consistent exercise. While you might like the way your waist trainer makes you look with minimal effort, there's so much more to gain by implementing a workout routine at the same time. Be sure to incorporate strength training and high-intensity cardio to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your waist training regimen.

    More Tips to Counteract Long Hours of Sitting

    A waist trainer can be a huge aid to your back health as a part of healthy lifestyle plan, but you may still need to address the fact that being stuck in a chair all day can hurt you. Here are some simple changes you can make to get moving and get healthy:

    • Take every opportunity to stand up when you can. Walk across the office to talk to a coworker rather than sending a message.
    • Park your car farther away from the entrance, wherever you go.
    • Opt for the stairs instead of the elevator.
    • Use a tracking device to count your steps and work up to 10,000 steps a day.
    • Organize your office space so that you have to stand up in order to retrieve files, answer the phone, etc.
    • Find alternative ways to work at your desk like an exercise ball, a chair without arm rests or even a standing work station.
    • Set a timer to remind yourself to be standing for at least ten minutes during every hour.
    • Try some simple desk exercises throughout the day.
    • Choose to walk or bike to work or when running errands instead of driving. If you take public transportation, remain standing when possible.
    • Use your free time to engage in active movement instead of continuing to sit. Try doing some stretches while watching TV instead of lounging on the couch.

    When you’re motivated and you put your mind to it, living a more active lifestyle is not very difficult. And it can do wonders for your health. If you’ve ever suffered from chronic neck, back or shoulder pain, then you know just how much it can put a damper on your overall wellness. While it can be tempting to simply reach for pain-killers or expensive medical treatments, you will only get so far in addressing the symptoms without getting to the root of the problem.

    Waist training can be an essential and very effective part of your healthy lifestyle plan. Just remember that while it’s an important piece, it’s still just one piece. You have to put the whole package of healthy eating and movement together in order to achieve the very best results and stay healthy for a lifetime.

She was thrilled to discover how effective waist training can be and recommends it for everyone! We talked with her recently about her experience:

    1. Tell us a little about yourself.

    I am a supply specialist and soldier in the U.S. Army. My plan is to remain in for three more years while working on my Human Resources degree. I also like to cook and to work out. Spending time with my son is my main hobby, though!

  • How to Make Waist Training a Habit

    Tricks for starting and keeping a new waist training habit

    Whether you’d like to start waist training as part of a New Year’s resolution, or if you just want to kickstart a healthy lifestyle at any time of year, congratulations! Making that decision can be a huge step in the right direction when it comes to improving your health and fitness.

    While that big decision is the first step, what might be even more important are all the little decisions that follow. In order for waist training and your commitment to better health to be effective, you actually have to follow through, day after day after day. In other words, to get the most out of waist training, you absolutely must make it a daily habit.

    Making new habits in our routines and lifestyles isn’t easy to accomplish. It takes determination, commitment and certain tools to help you set yourself up for success.

    Psychologists know this, which is why there has been a considerable amount of research about human behavior, motivation and how people build habits. While it would be nice if we could all make ourselves better out of sheer willpower, the science shows that this isn’t quite the way it works.

    Want to know how to make your waist training routine a habit that will last? Follow these proven strategies.

    1. Make Long-Term and Short-Term Goals

    Think about where you want your health to be from several months to a year from now (and beyond). Perhaps you want your body to be beach-ready by summertime, or maybe you’re trying to slim down for a wedding. Also be sure to think beyond the physical appearance. How do you want to feel about yourself? What do you want your energy level to be like? Jot down some of these ideas and identify which long-term goals are most motivating for you personally.

    Now take some time and think about what daily decisions you need to make in order to reach those goals. You aren’t going to drop three inches from your waistline with wishful thinking; you need to do the work. (Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for examples of daily waist training routines.)

    1. Build New Habits into Existing Routines

    What makes some habits the most difficult to stick with is when they are radically different from your current lifestyle. If you have to go far out of your way to create a healthy habit, chances are that when you hit a hurdle, you’re going to drop that habit. We naturally revert to what’s most comfortable, the path of least resistance.

    What you can do instead is use your current environment and routine to help remind yourself to follow your habit. This makes it much easier to stick with. For example, you probably have some daily rituals that you can easily fit waist training, exercise and healthy eating into. Whatever you do, try to pick a cue that will help you remember to stay on habit. Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit, says that visual reminders help you trigger your brain to start thinking about the habit.

    Here are some simple habits someone could build into their routine:

    • Instead of rushing around in the morning, lay out the next day’s outfit the night before, including your waist trainer. This literally takes one minute.
    • Keep a water bottle near your workspace. Whenever you crave an unhealthy snack, reach for the water first.
    • Keep your gym bag packed by the front door so you’ll never have an excuse that you don’t have it. Try to work out at the same time each day to make it a natural part of your routine.
    • Join a meal-planning service to help you plan out your healthy meals in advance. Put a reminder alarm on your phone to cue you when it’s time to meal prep.
    • Keep motivational quotes or pictures on your bathroom mirror to remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing.

    What habits work for you are going to vary of course, but take time to think through some realistic short-term goals and habits and you will be well on your way to reaching those long-term goals.

    1. Simplify Your Options

    According to research on self-control, are brains are easily overwhelmed when we are presented with too many choices throughout the day. For this reason, some influential leaders—Mark Zuckerberg and Barack Obama, for example—are known to wear the same clothes most of the time so that they can focus their energy on more important decisions. OK, they’re men, so maybe that’s their thing, but the point is that every single choice you make throughout the day depletes your energy, so get rid of the ones that don’t matter. According to the Harvard Business Review, to be better disciplined you should “identify the aspects of your life that you consider mundane — and then ‘routinize’ those aspects as much as possible. In short, make fewer decisions.”

    In addition to simplifying your wardrobe, you can set yourself up for success by making your food options easy. Weekly meal planning can help, and you will do yourself a favor by keeping unhealthy snacks out of the house. You’re a lot less likely to reach for cookies during that mid-afternoon slump when the only options are fruit and yogurt. If you’re going to be tempted by fast food and vending machines, keep some raw nuts in your purse so there’s never an excuse.

    1. Visualize Your Healthy Lifestyle

    When we set goals, many of us make the mistake of keeping our eyes on the end goal and the end goal alone. While it is helpful to set a goal, as mentioned above, you do yourself a disservice when you start fantasizing. Instead of dreamily imagining what you’ll look like in a bikini next summer, visualize yourself doing the hard work each and every day that it takes to get there. That will keep your fantasy in check and may even help you to be more motivated.

    Some practical suggestions include keeping motivational pictures and quotes that focus on the work and not just the end result (check out #BeTheHourglass on Instagram to see real women’s progress!). Get excited about your workouts and promise to treat yourself with a brand new waist trainer whenever you size down from your first one. And do it with a friend! When you’re working out, eating better and waist training together, not only will you keep each other accountable, but the journey will be a lot more fun.

    1. Plan Ahead for Your Melt-Down Moments

    You know yourself and so you probably know what your weaknesses are going to be when your start to lose momentum. Maybe you have a hard time getting up early to work out or you just can’t help but go for ice cream when you’re having a stressful day. When you cheat once, it’s tempting to throw in the towel altogether.

    Prevent yourself from cheating by giving yourself those little cues in your most vulnerable places. Maybe you’ll be more motivated to get up in the morning if you put your waist trainer right next to your bed. Stock up your freezer with some low-calorie popsicles so that you’ll have another option when you get cravings. And if you do have a bad day, don’t be so hard on yourself. Take a minute to assess where you went wrong, and find a new plan for tomorrow.

    Building the Habit: Sample Waist Training Routine

    Week 1

    For the first week, your goal is to wear your waist trainer for 5 out of 7 days. You can start at about an hour the first day, and then slowly add an hour each day that follows. You can break it into two sessions per day if necessary. By the end of the week, you should be wearing your waist trainer for 4–6 hours.

    For three days this week, do this core-strengthening circuit. Be sure to wear your workout band! In the meantime, keep track of how much water you’re drinking and aim for at least 64 ounces a day.

    Week 2

    Your goal this week is to wear your waist trainer for 8 hours a day, broken into 2 sessions if needed. Continue with the core-strengthening circuit for 3 days, with cardio in between if desired. If you haven’t explored or implemented healthy meal planning options, do it now!

    Week 3 

    Eight hours of waist training per day should feel great by now. If you’ve been breaking it into sessions, see if you can do it in one stretch each day. Aim for 5 days of exercise this week, with 3 core strength routines and 2 half-hour sessions of moderate cardio.

    Week 4

     Your waist training goal should now be 10 hours a day. And from here on out, hopefully you’ve built some great habits! Once you grow accustomed to what a waist training routine should look like, you can alter your fitness routine to your liking.

  • How to Break in Your Corset or Waist Trainer

    How to break in a new waist trainer

    When you first receive your steel-boned corset or cincher-style waist trainer, it can be very tempting to want to see your results right away! But it’s very important that you take the time to break in the garment before you simply start wearing it nonstop. This will provide the most comfortable effect for you, and it will ultimately create the best slimming results.

    Corsets and cinchers are both effective for waist training, but they are slightly different when it comes to trying them on and breaking them in. Be sure to follow the instructions for each style of garment carefully.

    How to Break in a Cincher-Style Waist Trainer

    The first step in breaking in your brand new cincher, which is probably made of latex, is to try it on and make sure that it fits correctly. If it’s the wrong size, you risk damaging the garment, and it will not produce the most flattering results for your figure.

    If you’ve never tried on a waist trainer with hook-and-eye fasteners, it is a little tricky the first time. The easiest method we recommend is starting with the bottom hook and fastening it around the narrowest part of your waist. You should be using the loosest setting so that you will have room to size down. Work your way up the garment one hook at a time, pulling the waist trainer down over your abdomen as you go. When the garment is completely fastened, it should be very snug and sculpt your torso into an hourglass curve. If you have much difficulty fastening the hooks, even with this method, it may be because the garment is too small. Don’t force it into place; consult its size chart online, take your measurements again, and try to determine what would be a more appropriate size. In some cases, you might enjoy a different style that will suit your body type better.

    Once you’ve determined that your garment fits and that you love the results, it’s time to slowly break it in. We recommend that you wear it for the first day for only about an hour; this will help you grow accustomed to the way it feels. If you’ve never worn one before, it might feel slightly restrictive and will take some time to grow accustomed to.

    If you plan on participating in an ongoing waist training program, increase the time you wear the waist trainer by about half an hour to an hour a day. This gives your body opportune time to adjust to the way it feels, and it also allows the materials to mold to your unique body shape. After a few weeks, you should be wearing the waist trainer for about 8–10 hours a day to achieve the best results.

    If you plan on wearing your waist trainer only for special occasions, we still recommend that you break it in before the event. Wear it at least 4–5 times, again increasing the amount of time you wear it so that you can grow accustomed to the way it feels. If you plan on wearing it at a long event like a wedding, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve prepared for that in advance (just like your shoes!).

    Finally, we’ll add that it’s very important to take proper care of your waist trainer, for when you’re breaking it in and beyond. Let it air out over a chair or on a clothes hanger when you’re not wearing it, which allows the latex to regain its shape. Spot clean using a very mild detergent, or clean in a bucket of warm water when needed. Always hang to dry.

    How to Break in a Steel-Boned Corset

    The process of breaking in a steel-boned corset is called seasoning, and it’s a very important step in getting the most out of the waist training garment. Like cinchers, the first step is putting it on and making sure that you have the right size. First, loosen the laces completely, put it on and fasten the busks in front.

    If you’ve never tightened a corset before, you may want to ask for some help; at the very least, do it in front of the mirror. You’ll want to do it gradually, starting at the top and the bottom of the laces and working towards the middle. It’s kind of like tightening shoelaces, only you will tie them off at the middle instead of at the end.

    This is very important: do not completely tighten the corset the first time you wear it, or you risk warping the steel boning inside. The modesty panel underneath the laces should only just reach the other side. You should still be able to slip your hand underneath. It will feel very rigid, and that is normal. Wear it for about 30 minutes, and then tighten it slightly. Then, after no more than two hours of wear, take it off for the rest of the day.

    As with a latex cincher, if you plan on doing a waist training regimen you’ll want to increase your time of wear gradually, by no more than about an hour a day. Lace it up a little bit tighter each time, but don’t force it. You’ll find that as time passes, it will more naturally mold to your figure, and you should be able to pull it very tight after about two weeks.

    If you only want to wear your corset for a special event, it’s still important to use the seasoning process—again, just like you would break in dance shoes. Order it well in advance and wear it for a couple of hours a day for a couple of weeks before your event.

    It’s also important to take proper care of your corset while you’re breaking it in and beyond. Place it lining side up over a chair or hanger when not in use and spot clean as needed.

    We hope you find this information helpful as you prepare for waist training or a special event. As always, contact us with any additional questions, or see our tips for shapewear care.

  • How Will a Waist Trainer Look on You? Here are Some Examples

    Waist trainer before and after

    If you’ve been following any of your friends’ or even strangers’ waist training journeys for a while, you will probably notice that everybody’s results are a little bit different. For example, a petite woman with a straight build in a waist trainer will certainly look different from a very curvy woman in a waist trainer—although both can look very flattering, IF they have the right garment for their body types.

    So the question is: what will a waist trainer look like on you?

    It depends on your natural body type as well as what type of waist trainer you use. Sometimes women like to have several different types of waist trainers in their wardrobes because of the different results they will produce!

    To better understand what your results might be, here are a few examples of different body types, waist trainers and corsets.

    Waist Trainers on Different Body Types

    Your natural build is very important when determining what types of waist trainers are going to work best on you! Here are some common body types along with their ideal waist trainers.

    Petite

    If you’re shorter than about 5’2”, you’re going to get the best results in a shorter cut waist trainer; a longer style might feel awkward or uncomfortable. Workout bands are cut short to provide more freedom of motion, so they’re also ideal for the petite body type. Check out these recommendations for short torsos as well.

    Long Torso  

    If you’re taller than about 5’8”, or if women’s tops seem to be short on your build, you’re going to look best in a waist trainer with a longer cut. This ensures that you get full coverage for your abdomen and lower back; otherwise, you might not like the way it sits. Check out these recommendations for long torsos.

    Curvy Bust 

    If your bust-to-waist ratio is high, you’re going to love the extra lift and support that a waist trainer provides. While it’s a matter of preference, many bustier women prefer the support of a vest-style waist trainer, which will also provide fuller coverage for your upper back. Check out our collection of vest-style waist trainers.

    Straight Figure 

    Women with a long and lean body type can benefit a lot from waist trainers because they create instant curves. There are a lot of great options if this is you. In general you’re going to want to stick to latex cinchers that have only two rows of hook and eye closures, as three rows are better designed more for women who are trying to lose a lot of weight. Try these everyday styles as well as workout bands. You might also like the results you can achieve from a lace-up corset, which can dramatically pull in your waist and give you a custom fit.

    Plus Size

    Waist trainers can provide stunning results if you are especially tall and/or curvy. But it’s very important to get one that’s the right size. Some people mistakenly believe that if they order a smaller size, they’ll get better results; but the opposite is true. If your waist trainer is too small, you might not even be able to get it on, and if you do, it will create a very unflattering “spillover effect.” If you’re in the plus sizes, be sure to check out garments designed especially for your build.

     “Average” Build and Proportions

    If you don’t have any features in your body type that stand out—meaning, you’re of average height and weight and have relatively proportional measurement ratios—you’ll have a lot of options available. Choosing the most flattering garment also depends on your goals, so check out the sections below if you need additional guidance.

    Before & After Photos

    Curious what waist training looks like when it's done right? Here are some great before-and-after photo examples of the results you might expect.

    Other Features to Consider When Choosing a Waist Trainer

    Body type can be a big factor when choosing the ideal waist trainer, but sometimes you’ll want to consider a few other factors, such as what your goals are, your lifestyle and a few other personal preferences. Here are some additional features in waist trainers that might affect your choice.

    Workout Options

    Wearing a waist trainer during your workouts can be a highly effective way to boost the intensity of your exercise routine, as well as provide the motivation you need to keep it up. But you don’t want to just wear any waist trainer or corset to the gym. Our collection of workout bands consists of garments that are designed to be more durable, provide more freedom of motion and stimulate heat to make you sweat more with less effort. They also tend to come in a variety of colors, styles and patterns, which makes them fun to show off.

    When selecting your workout band, just be sure to consider all of the options (such as number of hook rows or garment length) to ensure the best results for your unique body type.

    Lace-Up Corsets

    While latex cinchers are the more popular option when it comes to waist training, we are also big fans of traditional lace-up corsets. These garments have two benefits: first, since they lace up they are completely customizable and can size down with you day by day for the most dramatic results. Second, since they are constructed with steel boning, they may last longer. You could go down several dress sizes while waist training with the same corset. 

    2 Vs. 3 Rows of Hooks

    If you’re planning on losing a substantial amount of weight while waist training, you might consider choosing a cincher with three rows of hooks, giving you the most room to size down as you slim down. These are especially popular among women who are trying to lose post-pregnancy weight as well as anyone trying to kick-start a healthy lifestyle. If you’re not planning on losing substantial weight and you’re on the smaller side, you’ll get better results with two rows. 

    Visibility Under Clothing

    A common question we get is how easy it is to conceal waist trainers under clothing. While waist trainers will be invisible under many styles, you might want to be cautious when you’re wearing a top or dress that is especially thin or light in color. In those cases be sure to wear a waist trainer in a color that can be better camouflaged next to your skin, like nude or black. For those occasions you might also consider a no-closure waist cincher to ensure that the clasps won’t show through.

    Materials and Style

    Beyond these basic recommendations, the remaining options have to do with personal preference. If you have a sensitivity to latex, be sure to check out our latex-free options. Beyond that, if you’re still have trouble selecting the perfect waist trainer based on your body shape and other factors, be sure to check out the reviews for the garments you’re considering. Look for insights from people who share about their own size and shape and what results they experienced. You can also checkout #BeTheHourglass on Instagram and see what people are saying!

    Hopefully it’s evident from this post that there’s a flattering waist training option for pretty much every shape and size! Be sure to research your options thoroughly before making a purchase to ensure that you’re getting the best choice for your unique body type. And if you can’t decide between garments, why not try both? We highly recommend having at least two waist trainers in your wardrobe that you can rotate, in order to keep them clean and help the latex rest, when applicable. It can also be useful to have more than one option depending on what you’re wearing and what you’re doing.

Our team members come in various shapes and sizes just like anyone else, so we can make genuine recommendations based on our own experience.

  • Tips for Safe & Effective Waist Training

    Safe, effective waist training tips

    “Does it really work?” and “Is it safe?” are common questions we receive frequently about waist training. If you’re considering trying it, you might be wondering the same thing. So to answer your questions and potential concerns, here’s the basic rundown of what you need to know for safe and effective waist training.

    1. Find the right garment.

    There are so many choices when it comes to picking a waist trainer, but don’t be overwhelmed. When you know what you’re looking for, it doesn’t take long to narrow down your choices. It’s important to find the right garment in order to achieve the best results and fit for your body type.

    Here are some features to consider when narrowing down to your ideal waist trainer:

    1. Size correctly.

    Finding the correct size for the garment you have chosen is vital for safe and effective waist training. Most problems women encounter are because their waist trainer doesn’t fit. We have carefully curated and tested each and every garment on our website, so the size charts are customized for every one. Don’t rely on your dress size; take your measurement whenever you’re ready to order a new waist trainer.

    • Use vinyl or fabric measuring tape designed for sizing measurements.
    • Measure the narrowest part of your waist, which is a couple of inches above the navel where there is a natural bend.
    • Make sure the tape is level with the floor and lies flat against your skin or a very thin tank, without being pulled tight.
    • Follow the sizing chart for your garment exactly. Note that for garments with number sizing, the number isn’t the same as your waist size. Reference the chart carefully!
    1. Try the waist trainer on properly.

    Once you receive your brand new waist trainer in the mail, it might be a little bit tricky getting it on for the first time, especially if you’ve never worn one before! Just remember, if you’ve chosen the best garment for your needs and have sized it correctly, you shouldn’t have to yank or pull on it to get it on. It will certainly feel snug, but don’t risk breaking it by forcing it to close. Here’s how to put waist trainers on:

    • With a hook-up cincher, start at the bottom of the garment and clasp the bottom hook at the narrowest part of your waist. Fasten up the garment one hook at a time and then pull it down over your lower abdomen.
    • With a steel-boned corset, we highly recommend using a mirror or another person for guidance. Fasten the clasps in front first, and then begin tightening the back. To do this, you will be working from the top and bottom laces and working your way towards the center. It’s a lot like tightening shoelaces, only you’ll be tying the laces off in the middle. Note that corsets need to be seasoned, or broken in, before you tighten them fully. The first time you wear it, pull it tight enough that it holds its place, but not tight enough to provide firm compression. Wear the corset for about an hour a day for a week or two before you tighten the laces fully.

    Once you’ve tried on your waist trainer, it will feel tight but it should not pinch, restrict your breathing or cause any pain. If it does, take it off immediately and try to determine why you probably have the wrong size.

    1. Ease into a waist training regimen slowly.

    You might be excited at your results even just by trying your waist trainer on, but your body needs an adjustment period before you start wearing it for long stretches, just as it would need to grow accustomed to a new workout program. The garment needs to be broken in anyway, especially corsets. Start out by wearing it for about an hour at a time and then slowly work yourself up to longer increments. You can add about a half hour to an hour of wear a day. If desired, take a day off a couple of times during the first couple of weeks.

    With patience and persistence, you can comfortably wear a waist trainer for 8–12 hours a day after about a month of easing into this practice. This will provide the best results. Be sure to track your progress with waist measurements and photos!

    1. Pair waist training with a healthy lifestyle.

    We do not recommend using waist training as your only method to slimming your waistline. It’s vitally important to be fueling your body with whole foods, drinking at least eight glasses of water daily, and aiming for five days of exercise a week. These practices help your body stay hydrated and healthy while strengthening your muscles (and we highly recommend focusing on your core!).

    If you follow these tips and start a new waist training regimen mindfully and listening to your body’s cues, we have no doubt you will be thrilled with the results.

  • What Results Can You Expect When Waist Training? See Pictures of Real Customers

    Waist training before and after photos

    Many people ask us what kinds of results to expect from waist training. Understandably, it can be difficult to predict exactly what it will be like for them. As we often say, every body is different, and results can vary quite a bit depending on a combination of factors.

    These factors include:

    • Natural body shape: if you are petite for example, your results are not going to be the same as someone who is tall and curvy.
    • Goals: are you trying to slim down after pregnancy or lose a lot of weight? Or are you simply trying to enhance your figure without losing much weight? Your results will vary depending on what you’re trying to accomplish.
    • Lifestyle: are you already active or planning to be active? Is your diet going to change when you start waist training? Those factors have a huge influence on your overall results.
    • Genetics: there are a lot of ways your genes influence how much your body can change. For example, how elastic is your skin? How tall are you? Where do you tend to carry your weight?
    • Waist training plan: Someone who wears a waist trainer sporadically is not going to have the same results as someone who is dedicated to wearing a waist trainer the recommend 8–12 hours a day.

    That being said, we can still confidently say that you will get results no matter what your conditions are! Your results might not look like someone else’s, but if you are dedicated, you will see them. It’s important to track your progress with photos and waist measurements so that you can really see the gradual progress you make.

    If you’re still curious, here are some real results that our customers of varying shapes, sizes and lifestyles have experienced. You might get a little glimpse of what your results will be like if you take note of each of these women’s experiences.

    1. The Busy Nanny

    Desire 8 Week Waist Training Transformation

    One of the biggest challenges to implementing a healthy lifestyle change is finding the time. Desire is a young nanny with a demanding schedule. She knew that she wanted to change, but she just didn’t see how she could fit it into her schedule.

    She started seeing friends posting their experiences with waist training on Instagram and was intrigued. Why not give it a shot? Immediately after wearing it for just a few weeks, she started seeing substantial changes in her most stubborn trouble areas: her waist, lower abdomen and back.

    Her waist trainer of choice as a beginner was the Classica Latex Waist Cincher by Ann Chery. She explains her decision for this particular trainer: “Personally, I love the latex feeling because it's tight and doesn't more around. I also love this cincher because it comes with 3 bracket levels. As you begin to lose inches from your waist, your cincher becomes looser. With the 3 rows of hook-and-eye closures, I was able to find more use it in rather than purchase a new cincher every couple of months. After finally putting the trainer on, I felt like a million bucks. I loved how it enhanced my waist and how much slimmer I felt.”

    While she started out with just waist training, she began to get more motivated about changing her whole lifestyle by working out for 30 minutes a day and eating clean. She felt compelled to continue making changes because she started feeling so much more confident about herself! Her friends and family noticed her changes, and she loved the way she looked in the mirror.

    1. The Fashionable Interior Designer

    Suzie Waist Training Transformation

    As an interior designer, Suzie knows that the first impression can mean a lot when she meets with clients. She’s very conscious about the way she looks and presents herself. When she first heard about waist training, she thought it would be a great way to slim her midsection and emphasize her already lovely curves. She was surprised to discover that it did much more!

    She started out initially using a basic garment: Perfect Waist by Squeem. She loved it from the beginning and eventually wanted to take her waist training regimen up a notch with the Classica Latex Waist Cincher by Ann Chery.

    Suzie illustrates just how much waist training can do when you’re dedicated to it for six months:

    “I can see drastic results. My body has always been more of an hourglass shape, so it really helped emphasize that. I get so happy because I’ve had people tell me they really like how my waist is cinched, and that’s been when I’m not wearing one! I lost 4 inches more than I expected!”

    Like many others who start waist training, she started to eat better and become more active. She walks 4–7 miles a day and practices better portion control and food choices; the waist trainer has motivated her to start signing up for fitness classes as well.

    “These garments have given me so much encouragement! I feel great every day and they gave me the confidence to pursue my fitness goals further! I am now looking in to signing up for workout classes. I smile every day because of the changes I'm seeing in my body, thanks to my waist trainers.”

    1. The Stay-At-Home Mom

    Lillie Hall Beautiful Waist Training Journey

    Lillie is the proud mom of a toddler and needed to slim down for her upcoming wedding day. No matter how hard she tried, she just couldn’t shed the extra 20 pounds of baby weight she had put on. She saw waist training results on Instagram and knew she had to try it. She chose Ann Chery Workout Trainer and documented her journey online.

    Her results are truly inspiring. She worked her way up to wearing the waist trainer more than 8 hours a day. She finally started slimming down and was further motivated to eat smaller portions and work out 5 days a week with online exercise videos. She noticed results after just a few weeks and kept it up in anticipation of the big day!

    “The waist trainer absolutely met my expectations and then some! I honestly had a curvy hourglass shape naturally and didn't think it was going to make a huge difference in that area. Turns out that there was a wonderful difference made that I am beyond excited about! I am not only tiny all around, having almost completely lost my belly pooch, back fat, and side fat, but I'm also so much curvier than I ever thought I could be!”

    We hope you’re inspired by the real results that women like you have experienced with waist training. No matter what your goals are, we hope you try it for yourself and see what it can do for you.
