Tips for Getting Kardashian-Inspired Curves
Danielle Prescod is a fashion expert known for her work at Elle and InStyle magazine. We were excited to talk to her last year, when she expressed interest in doing a review of waist training after noticing the Kardashians' obsession with the practice.
We sent her one of our most popular items, the Workout Band by Ann Chery, which just happens to be one of Kim K.'s favorites to share on Instagram.
After a few weeks wearing the cincher, Prescod admitted she was hooked. But in her hilarious review, she unveiled a few tips that she learned the hard way. If you lean towards the lazy side, take her word for it and follow these practices. It will make your transition into a waist training regimen much more pleasant.
- Start out slowly.
Prescod wore her waist trainer for twelve hours on her first day and those that followed. While we're glad she didn't pass out, we highly recommend you just do a little bit at a time. Start out slowly—just an hour the first time. Add a little bit of time each day until you're comfortable wearing it for long hours. It shouldn't be a painful experience.
- Eat small, healthy meals and snacks.
You'll notice when you're waist training that you can't eat big meals. This can be a healthy change, as many nutritionists recommend eating five or six small meals a day anyway. But don't skip meals! This could make you cranky and might mess with your metabolism.
- Work out. Please.
You might be tempted to take shortcuts when you notice how easy it is to get a slimmer waistline without any effort. But you are not doing yourself any favors in the long run. Prescod was disappointed to discover that after a month of waist training and no exercise, her midsection hadn't quite experienced the transformation she was anticipating. Keeping your core strong is a must in order for you to achieve proper results with a waist trainer. Here are some recommendations for exercises you can do while wearing one.
