Wearing a waist cincher has started gaining popularity in terms of shaping the body into a perfect hourglass mainly because of the celebrities that actually do it to maintain their figure. One of the most popular celebrities who publicize her use of waist cinchers is Kim Kardashian.
She has been showing and sharing pictures of her wearing a waist trainer on Instagram. She got people envying her body and asking, “How long do you wear a waist cincher?”
However, wearing waist cinchers is not for everyone. There will be people who will find it ineffective in trimming the waistline, while others would find it too constricting.
Nevertheless, it is possible that these people who did not have a good experience and outcome from waist training did not have enough information on how to start and get used to wearing waist cinchers.
Before deciding to do waist training, it is important to gauge first if it is what a person really wants to do to achieve her body goals. One cannot simply buy it and use it the whole day from Day 1.
She needs to get a feel for it first and gradually increase the number of hours per day when she would be wearing the corset.
By undergoing this test, she will not waste precious time and money buying and using the most expensive waist cincher only to decide at the end that it is not for her.
Waist training or wearing a waist cincher is not simply wearing additional clothes underneath. It involves a change in a person’s lifestyle including her food and water intake, the way she dresses, and her exercise routine.
When one decides to wear waist cinchers, she is embracing the fact that she would be wearing it for a long time or until the time she has achieved her ideal figure. She should also be ready for some challenges along the way, such as during times when she would feel nothing is happening and that all her sacrifices are just going to waste.
During the first week, the user should think of this stage as a trial. On a daily basis, she should assess if she is getting comfortable and if she is fine wearing corsets for a long time.
The user should try to stay as objective as possible to make the right decision at the end of the trial whether or not she would push through with the waist training.
Before Day 1, the user should have chosen and bought a good quality yet affordable waist cincher. It is not ideal to buy an expensive corset for the trial stage since she is not yet decided if she will continue with the training.
The user should also make sure to break in the corset before actually using it. She should be sure that it is her size and she would be comfortable in it.
On Day 1, it is recommended that the user only wears the corset for about two hours. Since this is the first time she is actually wearing the waist cincher, she should understand that it could be a bit comfortable.
However, if there is pain or she is having difficulty breathing, adjustments should be made immediately. Once the perfect fit is achieved, she can continue wearing it until two to three hours.
On the first few days of waist training, the user should only wear it during the daytime, never while sleeping at night.
On the second day, the user can wear the waist cincher continuously for up to four hours. During this stage, she could start feeling constricted since she is wearing it half of the day.
The user should find time to reflect and think objectively how she is feeling. If there is any pinching or piercing felt or if she is feeling nauseous or having a hard time breathing properly, the corset may be removed and adjusted again.
Should everything work well, the user can start doing light exercise and stretching with the waist cincher for about 15 minutes. This is especially important if she is planning to use the corset during workouts.
At this stage, the user can do waist training for up to six hours. She can also start doing about 12 minutes of cardio with it. On Day 3, she should be feeling comfortable with her waist cincher already.
She should have already achieved the perfect fit and have already figured out how best to put it on and remove it.
From Day 4, the user can start wearing the waist cincher for eight hours or more. She can also start doing light exercise with her corset on.
Since she is wearing the waist trainer the whole day now, she should be able to observe that she is discouraged to eat more than she should since she would feel uncomfortable when her stomach expands because of too much food.
On Day 5, the user should continue using the waist trainer for nine hours or more. She should already be feeling comfortable with it at this stage. The corset could even feel like her second skin.
At this stage, she can do longer cardio workouts with her waist cincher. She should also observe if wearing it the whole day is causing any irritations on her skin.
Should this happen, she could opt to buy a different waist cincher made of other materials, or she could wear thin clothing before putting on the corset.
From Day 6, the wearer should be noticing that the waist cincher is becoming loose. This is a sign that the waist training is working. Nevertheless, if the waist is not yet getting smaller, the user should continue wearing the corset for at least 10 hours a day to see more obvious results in several days.
This is the moment of truth. This is the day when the user will decide if she will continue with the waist training and if it is for her or not.
She should go back to the first day and assess objectively if she has gotten used to how it feels and if she thinks it is affecting her positively.
Should the user decide to continue, she can wear a better quality and more expensive waist cincher. She should aim to use it for four to 10 hours a day to see significant results.
How long do you wear a waist cincher? There is no definitive answer to that question. Women have unique bodies. Though two people with the same waistline or same weight do the same kind of waist training, it is possible that they will not have the same results.
Genes play an important factor in losing, gaining, and maintaining weight. Nevertheless, with proper diet and exercise together with waist training, every woman has the potential to achieve the hourglass body they are dreaming of.
