Wearing a corset on a regular basis to emphasize curves and reduce the waistline is called waist training. What’s great about it is that it works, regardless of your size or body type.
On top of accentuating that waist, corsets can also compress your core muscles such that your midsection’s thermal activity and perspiration increase as you work out. They also improve your posture automatically and eliminate inches from your waist as you’re wearing them. Not to mention you’ll be able to control your food intake more easily, knowing that overeating will be unbearable with something wrapped around your tummy. Of course, we know exactly what that means – you become more confident and more motivated to keep looking fit.
If you’re planning on buying a corset, you will find plenty of them on the Internet alone, but are they all made the same way? Certainly not, and these are the factors to consider when you shop around:
Do you plan to work out with your corset? Buy a workout band, which helps pump up your sweat in all the right places as you exercise. Want to look beautifully sharp in the office? Buy an everyday cincher in a neutral tone so that it’s easy to hide under your clothes. Want to lose postpartum excess weight? A corset with three rows of hook is great to give you space while you’re sizing down.
Waist trainers nowadays are usually made of latex, which is very durable and gives solid all-day compression. If you’re sensitive to latex, don’t worry. You can always buy traditional lace corsets, and make them steel-boned for a more dramatic effect. If you want to keep it light and comfortable, get a cotton corset or a no-closure cincher.
Your body type will also be a factor in choosing the best corset for you. If you’re petite, for instance, a shorter corset will be suitable.
If your bust-to-waist ratio is bigger than typical, you can buy something with adjustable straps; if you want more bust support, there are vest-style corsets as well. For a long torso, get a longer waist trainer.
How to Order the Correct Size
When buying a corset, your waist is of course the most important measurement you should take. Get the narrowest part of your waist using a measuring tape- around two inches on top of your belly button where your torso naturally bends. The tape should lie flat against your skin and be level with the floor. Don’t wrap too tight and always leave enough space to slip a finger underneath. If it’s too tight, you could end up buying a corset that would be too uncomfortable to use.
