Waist training is using the aid of a tight laced corset in order to accentuate your curves, reduce your natural waist size, and giving you an hourglass figure. However, before you get started with your waist training, there are a few things you should know to help you begin your journey in a healthy and safe manner.
First, you need to consider what type of corset will best serve your needs. Though plastic boning does provide some support, you are less likely to see any serious results from it. A steel-boned waist corset, such as our lovely Madalyn Gothic Waist Training Corset, is highly recommended for those who are serious about their waist training. The fabric used can also make a difference as well. Our genuine leather corsets, such as the Farlane Genuine Sheep Napa Leather Waist Training Corset, can provide a little extra support and durability compared with other waist training corsets.
Next, you need to make sure your corset is a good fit. Your waist training corset should fit tight enough to pull your waist in by the 3rd hook closure and shouldn’t just ‘roll over’ your waist. However, you need to ensure that it does not interfere with your breathing or cause you any physical pain. It may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but you will get used to it soon enough.
Once you have done some ‘breaking in’ of your corset and are ready to begin waist training, make sure to start slowly. You should only wear the corset for 2 to 3 hours on the first day. By working your way up, you can easily wear your corset for 10 hours by the end of a week. However, don’t be afraid to work through it slower. It is crucial that you listen to your own body and respect its needs during your waist training.
For those who are serious about waist training and getting into better shape, it is recommended that you add exercise to your waist training routine. You should not exercise with the waist training corset on, but exercising in between wears can help you build muscle or add flexibility to further improve your posture and achieve great results with your desired hourglass figure.
Other great tips to keep in mind during your waist training include:
Staying Hydrated – Wearing a waist training corset can increase thermal activity which means you will lose more fluids through perspiration.
Be Patient – You won’t reshape your body overnight so be patient when it comes to seeing results.
Give Yourself A Break – Make sure to take a few waist training corset breaks here and there, especially if you are experiencing discomfort or trouble breathing.
