Waistline training is thought of as some recent trendy way to slim and reshape your waistline, but it has actually been around for as long as women have desired hourglass figures. Early Victorians wore corsets, which were fabric cincher with long pieces of whalebone inserted to give a smooth silhouette. The openings were laced up so that one could customize them to one’s ideal shape. A quick look at Victorian beauties shows that some of the celebrities of the day achieved amazingly tiny waistlines.
Thankfully, we do not have to kill whales or suffocate in layers of fabric to achieve the same results as the Victorians. Current waist trainers are predominantly made of latex and other high-tech fibers. While some celebrities incorporate them into workout routines for maximum benefit, simply wearing a trainer to work can help to reduce your waistline.
Waist Trainers for Busy Career Women
If you are in a sedentary job, doing office work or work from home, a trainer is a good first step to getting trim. You know you don’t have time to spend an hour at the gym sweating, so take the step the Kardashians have and take control of your body shape. By consistently wearing a trainer, you can slim down and reshape your body.
Benefits of Wearing a Trainer
A cincher will often take at least an inch off your waistline as soon as you begin wearing it. They’re more substantial than Spanx or other girdles, so you’ll get a smaller shape with a more distinct waistline. Don’t forget how thin girdles will suddenly roll up at the most inopportune moment as you bend over or walk quickly. No worries about rolls with a cincher, it’s substantial enough to stay in place all day
You may be a woman who slouches over the keyboard without even realizing it. Get a friend to snap a photo when you are focused on work and check out your posture. A waist trainer can improve your posture while seated and relieve pressure on your back. It’s not that the waist trainer is doing all the work, it is also reminding your abdominal muscles to “Suck it in, Buttercup.”
One more practical aspect of training is that a trainer can actually reduce your desire to overeat. You know the feeling of being too full for your jeans, but jeans aren’t usually office-appropriate attire. Wearing your trainer during those dull, afternoon office hours can keep you satisfied. You’ll be happy with that hundred-calorie nut pack you brought to stay on-plan instead of overindulging in a Hostess cupcake from the vending machine.
Some trainers are designed from extra-thick latex to increase sweating in the target area, further shaping your body. These trainers also increase blood circulation to the waistline. While this is a temporary loss of inches, it can really count when you need to fit into that bridesmaid dress, or you have a formal award ceremony at work. Seeing yourself not looking your best in that Facebook photo can ruin the excitement of your achievement or the fun of that formal party you attended.
Rules for Wearing a Trainer
While there are detractors to training your waistline, you can be safe by following a few rules that you’d use for any new activity. Start slow. Wear the trainer just a few hours a day, and work up to full 6-8 hours. Don’t buy a trainer you find extremely uncomfortable. You won’t be consistent wearing it if it’s unduly tight or itchy. Don’t start out trying to exercise in it. Wear it to the office, take it off before leaving. By using common sense, you’ll avoid the typical complaints of breathlessness and discomfort.
