Waist trainers have been around for centuries dating back to the 1500s. Yeah, we are talking waaayy back to the Victorian Era. For hundreds of years, people with back issues would be prescribed by their doctor to use a corset. These back issues ranged from bad posture to specific spinal issues such as scoliosis. The idea of waist training originated from the use of corsets. From a fashion statement to a weight loss tool, waist training has certainly evolved over the years. Kim Kardashian recently brought this fashion trend back which blew up on social media (in a good way). Despite obtaining an instant hour glass figure, the waist trainer offers so much more benefits for anyone using it. Throughout this blog, I will go over the four major benefits of using a waist trainer; also, a weight loss journey from one of our very own customers using her waist trainer.
What Happened To Trisha?
After experiencing knee pain, Trisha went to her physician to see what was causing it. She was told that the extra weight she was carrying around was too much for her knee to handle. Trisha knew it was time to make a lifestyle change. Without even knowing that her life was about to change, Trisha walked into our store and was fitted into a size 44 waist trainer. That day jump started her weight loss journey.
Two years later, Trisha now wears a size 38 waist trainer. How amazing is that? She wears it every day no matter the occasion. We are so proud of Trisha’s and are honored to be part of her weight loss journey!

#Goals: Consistency Is Major Key
Many people use waist trainers to supplement their other slim-down goals. Wearing a waist trainer will serve as a constant reminder to yourself of your goals and aspirations, physically and mentally. If you’re new to the waist training lifestyle, we recommend starting slowly. Be the Turtle not the Hare in this race.
Remember, this is a totally new adjustment that your body needs to get used to. Start wearing your waist trainer for about an hour or two for the first couple of days. Within those first days you will feel and see a difference in your body. After you’ve taken that baby step, begin wearing it a little longer each day.
To maximize your results, wear your waist trainer 8–12 hours a day, but keep in mind that results will vary depending on your lifestyle, goals, body type and other factors. It is totally normal to take a break in the middle of the day if needed, or even take a day off, but stick with it! Consistency is major key here!
“Sit up straight!”- Your Mom
We’ve probably all been told not to slouch more than one time and it was probably by our mom! No shame in our game. Not that we want to star in the “Hunchback of Notre Dame”; slouching is just a habit that some of us can’t crack. Luckily for us slouchers, wearing a waist trainer will improve our posture. The compression forces us to sit up straighter and provides more posture support.
