What is Waist Training


Waist training is a gradual process of waist reduction using a steel boned corset. Also known as waist cinching or tight-lacing, the practice of wearing a tight-lacing corset, exercising and eating a healthy diet can radically reduce the waist of men and women. Wearing a corset whilst undertaking a healthy diet helps reduce food volume intake by constricting the internal organs thus helping promote the healthier practice of smaller meals, more often, rather than three large meals a day.

Waist Cinching
Healthy Diet
Regular Exercise

The 3 components of waist training work in harmony. Results will be slower and harder to obtain if the 3 major components are not practiced as a gradual program of modifying the shape of the body.

When you start wearing your corset for the first time you need to begin slowly with only a few hours of wear a day.

WHY:   This gives your corset a chance to adapt to your body and your body time to adjust to the form and restriction of the corset. WEAR YOUR CORSET 6-8 HOURS DAILY. DO NOT WEAR FOR LONGER THAN 12 HOURS. If you were to lace up for say 10hours straight away you might experience cramps in your back, (especially if your not used to sitting up straight!) or a feeling of strong discomfort and an urge to take the corset off. This can lead to you associating your corset with discomfort and will make you less likely to put it on again the next day.

If you can not do the 8-12 hours wear your corset daily increasing time as you go.  During the first week, try to wear the corset 2 to 5 hours a day where possible. During week 2 you will increase wearing time to 5 to 8 hours. Week 3 will increase wearing time to 8-10 hours and week four 10 to 12 hours.  * Wearing your corset for 12 hours is suggested but not required. If you are uncomfortable wearing your corset the entire 12 hours, minimize your wearing time to at least 8 hours throughout the day.

Although some people sleep in the corset, we do not advise sleeping in a steel boned corset but at all other times of the day (apart from obvious breaks for bathing etc). Other corsets and cinchers can be worn during the day or as you sleep. Choose a method that is comfortable to you, as long as it can practically be part of your routine then it is a good discipline.

If you are serious about waist-training then it is very important to look after your corset; over time they take a lot of punishment from regular cinching but if you take some simple precautions you can extend the life of the garment:
Wash your waist training corset in cold water.  Air Dry your corset.

Dry clean steel boned corsets.

Follow these simple tips for maintenance, break the corset in gradually and you will have a corset that lasts a long-time; a little bit of care goes a long way where corsets are concerned.

HAPPY CINCHING: So, whether you just want to reduce your waist in the short term or you intend to embark on a gradual waist-reduction regime dedication is key. Remember, for longer term permanent waist-reduction a corset should be used in conjunction with healthy diet and moderate, regular exercise.

Always listen to your body! That’s the number one rule. Your body will naturally take a larger reduction as time goes by. Expect to loose 2-3 inches immediately and a further 1-2 within a few months. If your combining corset training with dieting this will obviously be greater. The smaller you go the longer it will take to achieve the next inch. Always put your health before your vanity and consult your doctor at the first sign of trouble or pain. You should have regular check ups when reducing down very small, say over 6inches smaller than the normal waist size for your age (if you were the correct weight for your age and height).
