How does a waist trainer work?

Publication date: 06.09.2021.


Waist trainers are meant to squeeze your midsection and “train” your figure into an hourglass shape.

Waist training is the process of reducing your natural waist size and accentuating curves with the aid of waist trainer or a tight laced corset. These garments are responsible for giving a woman the 'exaggerated hourglass figure': a tiny waist and curves over the hips.

Over time, your body will shift as you pull in at the waist. This is a semi-permanent effect from constant compression on the abdomen area. The more you wear your waist trainer, the faster the results.

The truth is anybody can train their waist to be hourglass shaped. Waist training works. It's evidenced in countless testimonials, before and after shots and celebrity endorsements. Waist training is the fastest way to those beautiful curves.

While results can be seen immediately, “training” requires wearing the garment frequently over a period of months.


After breaking in your waist trainer, wear the slimming garment for 2 hours the first day. This amount of time can be adjusted according to individual needs. You can opt for 2 or 3 hours during the first 3 days.

You will look slimmer upon initial wear of the waist trainer. The compression is going to begin immediately. The long term results are dependent on your level of commitment to wearing the trainer daily. If at any time you feel uncomfortable or your breathing is restricted or you cannot engage in normal activities, remove the waist trainer immediately. This is a clear indication the waist trainer is too tight.

No one loses weight and reshapes their body overnight. Being patient and taking it day by day is the long term goal here.


Hourglass figure
The instant transformation can be impressive, and the theory is that you can train your waist into maintaining that shape.

Weight loss
You might temporarily lose a small amount of weight wearing a waist trainer, but it will likely be due to loss of fluids through perspiration rather than loss of fat. You may also eat less while wearing the trainer simply because your stomach is compressed.

Decreased appetite
It makes sense that having your stomach squeezed will probably make you feel full faster. This may cause you to eat less. It’s important to eat the right amount of nutritious food to stay healthy and get the vitamins and minerals you need.

Better posture
Wearing a waist trainer may encourage good posture while you’re wearing it.
