While most people think of the popular latex cinchers when they hear “waist training,” did you know that steel-boned corsets are also effective to use for waist training? As a matter of fact, since lace-up corsets are reinforced with steel and can be tightened to a custom fit, they can give you the most dramatic waist training results.
If waist training with a corset (also known as corseting) intrigues you, then you may be wondering, “What is the best corset for waist training?”
We’re excited to let you in on this waist training secret. Our staff has handpicked their favorite corsets, so you can decide which one best fits your waist training needs.
The Satin Classic
The Short Underbust Satin Corset by Hourglass Angel HA207 is one of our favorite corsets because of its classic style and silky soft material. The satin bodice ensures that your clothing slides over it smoothly, while the short cut makes a dramatic cinch at the waist. This is an ideal corset for shorter women or for anyone who wants to achieve a sharp hourglass cinch at the natural waist.
It’s also one of our top-rated corsets. Here’s what customers say:
- “It’s perfect, the quality is great and it looks gorgeous!” – Dewliy
- “Great fit. Very comfortable.” – Angela
- “Love it!” – Guest buyer
The Cotton Classic
If you want a waist training corset that is light and breathable, the Short Underbust Cotton Corset by Hourglass Angel HA200 will give you the same slimming results as the short satin corset, but with the soft comfort of cotton. It will feel as soft against the skin as any other undergarment. And with the lightweight bodice, you can conceal it more easily under your everyday clothing. Like its satin sister, this garment is ideal for women with shorter torsos or who want a dramatic hourglass cincher.
The Full Length Curve Creator
While shorter corsets are ideal for creating a sharp cinch at the natural waist, long corsets are best for providing full coverage and slimming from bust to hip.
The Underbust Cotton Corset by Hourglass Angel HA202 is our favorite full-length torso for all-over slimming. It sculpts your whole midsection from just below the bust so that you can get a full hourglass silhouette underneath your clothing. Say goodbye to tummy pooch, love handles and muffin top, as this corset smooths trouble areas on your abdomen, hips and back.
We also love this waist training corset because of its comfortable cotton design. It feels soft against the skin and is lightweight, making it easy to wear in warmer climates and for all-day slimming power.
The Breathable Mesh Corset
It’s no secret that waist training can make you feel a little hot and sweaty. While this isn’t a bad thing, as the heat in your core is what makes it work, it’s nice to have a more breathable option. That’s why we love this Underbust Mesh Corset by Hourglass Angel HA206. It provides the sculpting power of a full length underbust corset and allows air to circulate, keeping your body cool and dry.
The lightweight design definitely doesn’t sacrifice its slimming capabilities. Waist tape keeps this corset firmly in place for waist training, while steel boning hidden within the garment ensures that it gives you maximum sculpting power. This corset easily hides underneath clothing but can double as outerwear if you want to make a statement!
How to Get the Most Out of Waist Training with a Corset
Once you’ve picked your perfect corset, it’s important to know how to wear it properly and care for it so that you can get the best results.
While corsets can be worn occasionally if you want to get a dramatic hourglass shape with certain outfits, they are also effective as part of an everyday waist training regimen. Wearing a corset every day, as part of a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise, can help you achieve your slimming and fitness goals. We recommend wearing a corset 8–12 hours a day for the best results.
Corsets are powerful waist trainers because of the way they are constructed. Steel boning makes them more durable than most latex waist trainers, and the lace-up back ensures the tightest fit every time you put your corset on. If you’ve already tried waist training with a latex cincher and want to take your results to the next level, a corset might be just what you’re looking for.
When you first receive your corset, it’s very important to season it, or break it in, before you fully tighten it. A seasoned corset will mold to your figure and fit like a glove, but it takes some time before it’s ready.
To season a corset and get it ready for waist training, start by wearing it loosely for about an hour a day. You can fasten the laces tight enough so that the garment stays in place, but don’t tighten them yet. If you tighten them too soon, you risk damaging the garment.
You can gradually wear your corset a little longer each day. This will also help your body grow accustomed to the way the corset feels so that it will be more comfortable when you’re ready to tighten it. After about two weeks of seasoning your corset, you can try tightening the laces fully. They should glide easily through the grommets on the garment, and the corset should mold to your figure without any gaps.
Be sure to care for your corset by hanging it and letting it air out when you’re not wearing it. Keep it out of direct sunlight and spot clean as needed with a gentle detergent and sponge. (See more: How to Properly Care for Your Steel-Boned Corset.)
We hope you love the dramatic way your corset will sculpt your figure as much as we do! It takes some patience and dedication, but when you’re using our best corsets for waist training, you’re going to love the results.
