You might have heard about waist trainers on TV or seen the Kardashians gushing about how they owe their curves to their shapewear but have never been exactly sure what it is. If you’re completely new to the subject let’s rewind to the very beginning and explain the basics of waist training.
Put simply, a waist trainer is a type of high compression garment which is worn around the midsection. It’s designed to shape your body and the results can be instantaneous, giving you a sculpted look in a matter of minutes.
If you’ve always been envious of Kim K’s curves, this is your chance to get a shapely new body. Wearing a waist trainer can help you stay focused on eating healthily and it’s an easy approach that anyone could follow.
It’s important to choose the right type of shape wear for your body; once you get used to the feel of your waist trainer you’ll find it’s more comfortable than a second skin.

The key to getting the very best results is getting the size right from the start. The importance of this cannot be over-emphasised.
You might be tempted to squeeze into the smallest size possible in the hope that you’ll end up with that tiny waist you’ve always wanted. However, if you’ve chosen a size that’s too small you’ll feel desperately uncomfortable and you won’t get those gorgeous smooth curves that you’ve seen elsewhere.
Shapewear that’s too tight creates unwanted lumps and bumps and won’t be a flattering look. If in doubt, it’s better to size up than to wear a waist trainer that’s a bit of a squeeze.
Every piece of shapewear, from waist trainers to sweat fitness belts, has their own sizing guide. It’s always a good idea to check each individual product for the recommended measurements as it’s not uncommon for sizing to vary.
When you first try your waist trainer on it might seem like an uphill task but don’t give in; the more frequently you wear it the easier it will seem. Once you’ve done up the first hook the others can be fastened much more easily; it won’t take long before you barely need to think twice!
Starting at the bottom of your waist and moving upwards is often the easiest way as it gradually pulls you in, bit by bit. When it’s completely done up, the waist trainer should fit over your midsection very snugly without feeling painful.
If you’re new to the world of waist trainers, here’s what you can expect:
▪ It’s really difficult the first time! But fear not, as it does get easier

▪ You won’t be inclined to overeat
