A waist trainer is a type of compression garment that helps you achieve the hourglass figure you desire. It accomplishes this by helping you reduce your natural waist size so that all of your body weight falls more easily on your hips and creates the appearance of an hourglass figure. Achieving such a look with the help of a trainer can be challenging, as it requires wearing it for several hours each day until you get used to it. However, getting the right size will make or break your experience with this garment and whether or not you see results from using it. Getting a proper fit is essential to ensuring that you get the best possible results from your new piece and that it doesn’t cause any sort of discomfort or pain while wearing it. In this post, we will go through some general guidelines to ensure that you get the right-sized trainer for yourself.
How To Know What Size Waist Trainer To Get
The best way to know what size waist trainer to get is to take your measurements. You will need to measure your waistline and your bustline. To measure your waistline, you will need to wrap a tape measure around your waist. To measure your bustline, you will need to wrap a tape measure around your chest, just below your breasts. Once you have your measurements, you can consult a size chart to find the right size for you.
How To Measure For A Waist Trainer
Step 1: Determine Your Natural Waist Size
As we mentioned in the previous section, one of the first things you will want to do when measuring for a waist trainer is to determine your natural waist size. Your natural waist size is the waist size you have before wearing a trainer. So, if you wear a size 28 in jeans, your natural waist size is 28 inches. Wearing a trainer will cause you to reduce your waist size significantly, and it is important to know what this size is before buying a trainer. This will make buying a trainer much easier, as you will know exactly what size you should get.
Step 2: Find Out What Size Trainer Fits Your Natural Waist Size
Once you have determined your natural waist size, you will want to find out what size trainer you should get. You do not want to just get the size that matches your natural waist size. You want to get a trainer that fits tightly around your waist so that it can effectively compress your waist and hold in your body weight. Typically, trainers have a looser fit than other types of garments (like jeans), so you will want to get a size that is one size smaller than your natural waist size. For example, if your natural waist size is 30 inches, you will want to get a trainer that has a 29-inch waistband.
Step 3: Determine If You Want to Also Focus on Shaping the Lower Abs
Another important thing to consider when buying a waist trainer is whether or not you want to focus on also shaping the lower abs. A lot of people who wear trainers want to focus primarily on reducing their waist size, but some people may also want to focus on toning their lower abs as well. One way to do this is to choose a trainer with a high waistline (such as an hourglass corset or a standard corset). These types of trainers will compress your waist and lower abdominal area, which will allow you to focus on toning your lower ab muscles while also reducing your waist size. Alternatively, you can also choose to wear a trainer that has lower compression in the lower abdominal region. Some trainers have different levels of compression in different areas of the garment. So, you can get a trainer that focuses on reducing your waist size in the upper region and less compression in the lower abdominal area.
Step 4: Find Out What Size Fits Your Desired Target Waist Size
Once you have determined what size trainer you should get based on your natural waist size, you will want to determine what size trainer you should get based on the desired size you want to end up wearing after wearing a trainer for a few weeks. You want to get a size that will fit your target waist size when wearing the trainer after it has reduced your waist size by a few inches. For example, if you have a 30-inch natural waist and you want to end up with a 25-inch waist after wearing the trainer for a few weeks, you will want to get a trainer that has a 24-inch waistband. This way, the trainer will still fit you after it has shrunken your waist size.
Types Of Waist Trainers
The traditional corset has been around for hundreds of years and is still a popular and effective piece of clothing today. This type of trainer is typically made from sturdy fabric, such as cotton or satin, and has a rigid structure that is designed to compress your body and reduce your waist size significantly. This type of trainer is ideal for someone who is looking to achieve a very specific and dramatic transformation and wants a trainer that will provide maximum compression. Traditional corsets are usually one-piece garments that lace up in the back. While they offer a ton of compression, they can be challenging to put on by yourself and are best worn as an outer garment (something you wear over your regular clothes).
Waist Trainer Belt
A waist trainer belt is a type of garment that is very similar to a standard corset. The difference is that a waist trainer belt is an open-front garment that doesn’t have any lacing in the back. This makes it easier to put on than a traditional corset, though it doesn’t provide quite as much compression and is less effective at reshaping your body. A waist trainer belt is a great option for someone who isn’t looking to make quite as dramatic of a transformation and wants a trainer that is easy to put on.
Waist Trainer Corset
A waist trainer corset is a hybrid garment that combines the benefits of a traditional corset with the ease of putting on a waist trainer belt. A waist trainer corset has an open-front design like a trainer belt and usually has laces in the back like a traditional corset. This makes it easier to put on than a traditional corset while still providing plenty of compressions and shaping your body. A waist trainer corset is a great choice for someone who wants the maximum amount of compression and shaping while still being able to put it on by themselves.
Waist Trainer Wrap
A waist trainer wrap is an open-front garment that is designed to compress your waist and abdomen area. While it is possible to get a waist trainer wrap that provides a decent amount of compression, it isn’t as effective as a standard corset or a trainer corset at reducing your waist size. A waist trainer wrap is a great option for someone who wants the general benefits of a trainer but isn’t looking to achieve a dramatic transformation.
Waist Trainer Tank Top
A waist trainer tank top is an open-front garment that is designed to compress your waist and midsection. This type of garment is a great option for someone who wants a trainer that is easy to put on and doesn’t want something that is visible when wearing fitted shirts or dresses. A waist trainer tank top is a great option for someone who wants to achieve a reduction in their waist size but doesn’t want to wear anything underneath.
Q: Is this a good option for someone who wants to achieve a reduction in their waist size but doesn’t want to wear anything underneath?
A: Yes, it is. It is better than wearing nothing at all because you are still wearing your normal clothes, so you won’t be showing off your waist trainer. However, it isn’t quite as effective as an actual corset or waist trainer belt because the garment isn’t as tightly fitted or well-made as a quality corset or trainer.
Q: Is this a good option for someone who has never worn a corset before and wants to try one out?
No, it isn’t. It is very difficult to put on and take off without the help of another person, so it isn’t recommended for beginners or people with limited experience with traditional undergarments. If you are new to corsets and don’t want to spend money on something that you may not end up liking then this may not be the best choice for you!
Q: Is this garment designed by The Corset Company?
A: Yes! The Corset Company designed our waist trainers and wraps to provide maximum compression while being easy enough for anyone to put on by themselves!
