Popularized by the highly-exposed Kardashian family fad, the craze of wearing waist trainers to achieve an ideal hourglass figure has become so popular that we see every lady friend we have on social media with photos wearing corsets. There is no denying that curves run in the blood of the girls in Hollywood’s reality shows, but theirs are even more defined by the binders that they wear.
But is this method safe? Long before Khloe and Kim and Kourtney, women of the 16th century, especially those in western countries, have been using this garment as part of their everyday clothes. That being said, wearing waist binders seems harmless. Are they effective? If you are someone looking for an instant result, waist trainers may not be for you.
To achieve results, a waist trainer has to be worn for a certain number of hours every day. Doing this not only helps in getting that coveted hourglass shape, but it also helps in improving posture. Steel boned corsets push the wearer to straighten up their torso, which helps eliminate the hunchback posture most women acquire from a bad stance.
There are also some who claim that wearing corsets creates an illusion of being full, hence eating small proportions during meal time. This is good especially for those who find it hard to maintain discipline when in front of a wide selection of food.
If you are the type who wants to slim down without lifting a finger, then forget waist trainers. Since they compress fat in the mid-section, it doesn’t mean they dissolve unwanted flabs completely. Pairing a corset with your exercise routine is a great combination to achieve a toned body.
Some claim that they experience dizziness while wearing corset. Beware of the tightness and loosen or adjust the waist trainer to avoid any difficulty in breathing. Bear in mind that wearing a corset will not feel comfortable at all but consider this as an indication that it works.
