Waist Training Corsets

Over the years, women have opted for waist trainer corsets not only as a sexy lingerie staple but also as a style piece that is intricately designed to pull in the waist, resulting in an hourglass shape. 

With corseting still gaining momentum in terms of popularity, women continue to unravel corset related benefits such as those of sultry look creation and posture support. 

Created from a solid fabric and reinforced with flexible steel rods specifically designed to boost the corset's strength, these sexy pieces are also layered with waist tapes for the perfect cleavage.

Although corseting dates back to a more storied history, it continues to undergo several malleable reinventions and redesigns, from waist trainers to cinchers and bust enhancers. It is therefore of uttermost importance that women understand the corseting aspect as a piece birthed to not only create some balance but to also bring about a more comfortable feel. 

Additionally, corsets can be worn as a waist trainer or underbust depending on style preferences. Even though corsets come in an array of styles for different body types, all of them are made to fit comfortably around the midsection while still keeping the body's unique features under wraps.

When it comes to corsets' styling, one can choose to wear it singly or even on top of dresses or blouses. With corsets coming in a range of patterns, such as scooped and sweetheart necklines, you will have a variety of options to choose from.


Corsets as waist trainers

The concept of tight lacing and body modification using a corset is not a new one. Human beings have been using tight lacing to alter their physical appearance for many years.

But while tight lacing has been around for a while now, you may have only heard about the term 'waist training'.

If we were to describe waist training in fundamental terms, a good definition would be using a corset to modify the shape of your waist.

Traditionally, waist training refers to the use of steel boned corsets, which are tightened over time to alter the appearance of one silhouette physically.

An Introduction to Waist Training

You now have a fundamental idea of what waist training is. But let's delve into a little more detail about it, and how waist training works.

Corsets that can be used for waist training have unique boning inside them, sometimes referred to as 'stays.' These are pieces of a rigid material, such as whalebone or steel (which is the modern equivalent of whalebone), which gives the corset a rigid shape. When the laces at the back are pulled tight, the waist is drawn in, compressing the body around the torso and holding its shape due to the support of the stays.

But where waist training becomes interesting is when we talk about the manipulation of 'floating ribs.' 'Floating ribs' is the term given to the small, delicate ribs at the rib cage's bottom, which are not attached directly to the rib cage. Since these ribs are not technically attached, they can be manipulated by applying gentle pressure to the rib cage using a corset.

The end result? A smaller, narrower waist achieved after some time.

Factors to Consider When Waist Training

Before you consider waist training, it's always best to seek professional advice. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, then definitely speak to your doctor before you decide whether waist training is right for you.

While there is plenty of propaganda out there, stating that waist training helps you to lose weight, this is false. Do not expect the number on the scales to change when you start waist training!

Remember that the effects of waist training are not permanent. You might attain a smaller waist over time, but once you stop waist training, your body will return to its natural shape.

What Type of Corset Do I Need for Waist Training?

What makes a good waist training corset? After all, not all of them are created equal. There are many opinions on the best types for waist training. However, there are a few general rules that you can follow when selecting a corset for this purpose.

1. Your corset must have stays. This means that it must be lined with flexible steel or another rigid structure to provide support. For this reason, it is better to purchase a steel-boned corset rather than an elasticated waist trainer.

2. It must fit well. Your corset must be tight, but not too tight since you want to be able to lace it tighter and tighter over time to achieve your desired shape.

3. It must be comfortable. This means that the garment must not be so tight that you cannot move freely or have trouble breathing. Bear in mind that wearing one can be mildly uncomfortable as you start to adjust to the garment, but it should not stop you from performing day-to-day tasks.

4. It must be an hourglass shape. This might seem like a no-brainer, but since there are different shapes and varieties of the corset top on the market, it's important to point out that if you want an hourglass-shaped figure, you will need to work with an hourglass-shaped corset.

5. It must be of good quality. By this, we mean it should have steel bones, be sturdy and well- made, and have metal eyelets to prevent the garment from warping. Also, if you are planning on waist training with a corset, be sure to select one that is laced up with laces rather than ribbon - as laces are far sturdier and will help the corset to maintain its shape when it is pulled tight.

How Long Do I Need to Wear the Corset?

Once you have selected an appropriate corset for waist training, it's time to begin! The first thing that you need to do with your new corset is to break it in, in a process known as 'seasoning.'

Seasoning your sexy looking corset involves breaking in your garment slowly so that it molds to your body shape without causing any damage to the garment. It gives you the chance to get comfortable in it before you start wearing it for prolonged periods.

Once you have broken the corset in, it's time to start training that waist. On the first day, wear it for a couple of hours and no more. Remember, the key to effective waist training is to take it slow. Next, start to increase the amount of time spent in your corset by about an hour a day, up to 8 hours.

Once you feel fully acclimatized to your corset, you can start tightening it gradually over time. How much you tighten it is up to you, but remember to take it slowly. It's also a good idea to take days off with your waist training, as wearing a corset constantly could be detrimental to your health.
