It may look simple, but much of the questions around the latest celebrity must-have accessory involve how to actually use a waist training corset, when it is (and isn’t) safe to wear a slimming corset and of course we are often asked during fittings how best to wear our very own Cinch Corset and Active Range Corsets to get the best results.
So now we’ll tell you!
How To Wear a Waist Training Corset
The key word to remember is “trainer” – just like when you’re working out at the gym, the idea behind a waist training corset is to train the waist through regular use, and then to maintain the shape created by the slimming corset over long periods of time.
Wearing a waist training corset coupled with a balanced diet and regular exercise should bring you the gradual reduction of your waist size, as seen by the impressive results of our customer so far!
Before you begin wearing a waist training corset, check the following list of must-haves:
- Check you don’t have a latex allergy before purchasing a Cinch waist training corset
- Make sure you were properly measured for a safe and effective waist training corset
- Choose the best quality waist training corset you can afford; the Cinch corset will be a valuable long-term investment!
- Ensure your waist training corset feels comfortable but supportive and firm when you try it on (it should be tight in your core area but not affecting your breathing)
- Follow the instructions for garment care that accompany your waist training corset
How To Use a Cinch Waist Training Corset
Again, as with personal fitness, most people start a long-term program of waist training – beginning their use of their Cinch Corset at just a couple of hours per day, every day, starting on the first level of tightness in the hook fasteners.
After a week or so of regular use, you can then increase the amount of time you wear your waist training corset up to maybe 3-4 hours per day.
The aim for most people is to get to a point where it is comfortable to wear their waist training corset for 8 hours a day. And this will become easier as the waist is encouraged into shape.
In fact, many customers will report a loosening of their Cinch Corset after a few weeks – this is because the waist is training into a slimmer shape, and this is when you need to start using the additional rows of hook fastenings to get further results from your slimming corset.
When To Wear a Slimming Corset
You can choose to wear your waist training corset while working, walking, watching TV, cleaning, whatever it is that you normally do during the day or in the evening.
While wearing a waist training corset it is advised to adopt a healthy lifestyle and this will include eating more regular, but smaller meals, which will feel more comfortable with the Cinch Corset. This is yet another reason why the waist training routine works – it is a constant reminder and an encouraging factor in your daily choices.
It is also recommended to keep well hydrated while using your waist training corset as the special materials increase perspiration which also contributes to weight loss over time.
If you’re headed to the gym or doing some exercise at home, there’s no need to put the waist training corset to one side either. The Cinch slimming corsets in our new Active Range have been specifically developed in shape, material and design to enhance the core strength of a workout, improve posture, aid perspiration and ultimately increase the effectiveness of your programme.
When Not To Use a Waist Training Corset
Obviously there are times when it may not be safe for you to wear your waist training corset. Although many doctors recommend them for post-surgery recovery and indeed additional back and core support post-pregnancy, it is obviously not a good idea to wear a slimming corset while pregnant.
We would always recommend to our customers that they double-check with their GP before starting a period of wearing the waist training corset, just to be sure.
Likewise, if you feel very uncomfortable or unwell at any time wearing a waist training corset, simply remove it and seek advice from both the manufacturer and your personal health team.
The most important thing to remember is that it is a process, you are training, not immediately changing, your body shape and this takes time and patience. But as with all training, dedicated time to wearing your Cinch Corset will show you waist training results quickly, safely and discreetly.
