Dos and Donts of Waist Training
How To Start Waist Training Safely and Effectively to Shrink Your Waistline
You've probably heard of the waist training trend by now; gorgeous celebrities like Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian proudly swear by it. Jessica Alba revealed she used a waist-training corset for 3 months after pregnancy to trim off her baby weight. Kim Kardashian admitted she's "obsessed" with waist training and showed off her own shaper on Instagram.
But does it really work? Is it safe? Before beginning any waist-training regimen, it's important to first gain an understanding what waist training is, what results to expect, and how to wear the garments properly.
Waist training can be beneficial to many people. You can reference the hundreds of reviews on our most popular waist trainer, the Cincher by Amia. The key to the best results is to do it consistently. Results will vary depending on your body as well as your dedication to the practice. Note that changes you see in your waistline, which can be dramatic, won't be permanent if you stop wearing your waist trainer. However, if you use a waist trainer to complement a healthy diet and exercise, you may see more lasting results.
As far as safety is concerned, the science behind modern waist training is similar to sauna suits, which athletes use to sweat off extra weight. The latex in cinchers boosts thermal activity and increases perspiration. Like any fitness regimen, the main safety concern is to stay hydrated and listen to your body's cues.
Follow these tips in order to safely enjoy the benefits of a waist training regimen!
