Let’s start with the basics: what is a waist trainer? A waist trainer is a high-compression shaping garment that you wear around your midsection to slim your waistline instantly and supplement your fitness goals. Most waist trainers stimulate thermal activity in your core, making you sweat more with less effort during exercise. Waist trainer benefits include a more effective workout, improved posture, and dramatic hourglass curves—instantly.

ALL ABOUT RESULTS
HOW SOON WILL YOU SEE WAIST TRAINING RESULTS?
The beauty of waist training is that the slimming and posture correction is instant! If you're trying waist training to supplement a fitness routine, results vary widely depending on your fitness level, when you start, how dedicated you are to your waist training regimen, your diet and exercise, and even your genetics. Our recommendation: keep going! Stick with it long enough and you could see some dramatic results in the mirror sooner than you think.
HOW TO GET THE BEST WAIST TRAINING RESULTS?
Waist training is most effective when used as part of an all-around healthy lifestyle. To ensure that you are getting the best results and tracking your progress you should:
- Take photos of your progress.
- Stay hydrated.
- Follow a fitness routine that includes cardio & strength training.
- Eat small, nutritious meals throughout the day.
- Once you’ve worked up to it, wear your waist trainer 8–10 hours a day.
When eating, wearing a waist trainer may make you feel fuller faster, thus making your portions smaller – so it's important to pack each meal with the nutrients your body craves. We don’t recommend “going on a diet,” because that generally doesn’t teach you to make a permanent adjustment in your lifestyle to better your health. Instead, you can use a cleanse to jumpstart your lifestyle change. After that, stick to whole, unprocessed foods that give you energy and make you feel good!
Wearing a sexy workout waist band can be very motivating, so make the most of your workouts. It’s important to mix different levels of cardio intensity with strength training to make those core muscles stronger in your fitness journey.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU START
If you’re new to waist training, you might have some surprises! Here’s what is totally normal but perhaps unexpected:
- Waist trainers are difficult to put on the first time (it gets easier)
- In the beginning, you can only wear your waist trainer for a few hours at a time.
- You may notice fast results.
- You will be less likely to overeat.
- You’ll wonder how you ever dressed without one!
Here are a few more unexpected surprises you might experience once you start corset waist training regularly.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER FIT
For the best results, your waist trainer should fit like a glove and should not cause any discomfort. That being said, most waist training corsets feel very tight when you first put them on. Don't worry – your body will grow accustomed to it very quickly. It’s important to break in the garment before wearing it for long stretches. When your waist trainer first arrives, wear it loosely a couple of times for an hour or so before you start increasing the length of wear.
HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT SIZE WAIST TRAINER?
Remember: a waist trainer corset must be the right size for your body to create the most dramatic and most flattering results. But sizing depends on the product, so always follow the specific product’s sizing chart.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR A WAIST TRAINER?
Use a standard cotton or vinyl tape measure. Make sure the tape is level and not too tight or too loose. Take a look at the graphic that demonstrates how to measure effectively.
When measuring, use fabric or vinyl measuring tape and make sure that it is parallel with the ground when you’re taking the measurement. A waist trainer that doesn’t fit will not be comfortable or effective. To properly size a corset, subtract three to four inches from your waist measurement. For example, if your waist measurement is 32, you should consider a size 28 corset.
Ultimately, if you are in between sizes, always size up for the best results.
