Are corsets and waist trainers able to help me lose belly weight?
What’s the short story? No. Longer story… sorry, no. Although a corset won’t magically reduce body fat, it can help you make big changes in your body.
Fat loss can be achieved by eating less calories than your body needs. This is done through diet and exercise. As much as we might like, corsets are not designed to target fat loss. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet that will help you lose belly fat. If you don’t want to be confined in a corset, waist training can help you achieve a curvier hourglass shape. Take a look at our Before & After photos to see how waist training can transform your silhouette.
Although waist training doesn’t cause weight loss or target belly fat, many people find they don’t overeat when they’re well-fed. You might find it helpful to feel corseted while you eat if you have trouble eating in sensible portions. It’s also known as an “external la band”, because the sensation is very similar. Another great way to reduce portions and waist train is to eat 4-6 small meals rather than 3 large meals.
How about the Corset Diet. Is it possible?
Corsets aren’t designed to help you lose weight. They can be used to shape your waist and provide support for your posture. Here are some things you should consider if corseting is used to reduce weight by eating smaller portions.
- Make sure you’re getting enough calories. You may be limited in your food intake if you’re new to corseting. You need to eat enough calories to support your lifestyle.
- You also need to plan meals more carefully if you have a lower food intake. You must ensure that the calories you consume contain the proper nutrients, vitamins, and complex carbohydrates your body requires to function at its best.
- You can loosen your corset if you feel you aren’t getting enough nutrition or calories. Or you can just take it off completely when you eat. Feeling deprived almost always leads you to binge-eating later. Corseting doesn’t work with all foods. Corsets don’t work well with heavy fried foods and carbonated drinks. You may experience unwanted gas and discomfort from the carbonation trapped in your waist.
What exactly does waist training accomplish?
Consistent waist training will make your waistline smaller over time. Your corset will also fit more snugly than it did at the start of corset training. The corset shapes your waist to a classic hourglass shape, but it doesn’t reduce belly fat.
What can my waist trainer or corset do for me?
Corsets can be used as part of your weight-loss journey to increase the impact. These are some tips to remember:
Tip #1: Be consistent. Consistency is key to the best results in waist training. You don’t have to wear corsets all day. However, it is important to dedicate a few hours every day.
Tip #2: Diet. Although everyone is unique, there are some things you can do to make your body feel its best.
- Plenty of water
- Fresh fruits and veggies
- Get enough protein to meet your daily dietary and activity needs
- Reduce your salt intake and add sugars
Tip #3: Regular Exercise. Although everyone is unique, there are some things that can be done to make sure we feel our best.
- To keep your progress going, you can work out in any of our waist cinchers or shapewear pieces. You won’t be able to workout in your steel-boned waist training corset.
- Are you looking to sweat it out? To really feel the heat, some people wear a cincher while doing HIIT.
- Planks can be a great way of working your entire body. You can do them on your forearms or your hands if you have weaker wrists. Or, you can do them on your side to focus on your oblique muscles.
- Leg Lowers target the lower abdomen as well as the whole belly. You can add ankle weights if you are ready to go faster and really increase the effectiveness of your workout.
- Superman requires you to use your glutes, hamstrings, and lower back together with your abs. While wearing a corset can give you a great posture, strengthening your back muscles without the corset will allow you to keep that healthy posture even if you aren’t laced. This is a difficult one. Listen to your body and don’t strain your neck or back.
- Windshield wipers are great for helping you lose your muffin top. This is one of the most problematic areas people try to eliminate when they are waist training.
Tip #4: Hydration and rest. Hydration has been shown to promote healthy digestion. Anyone who has felt constipated can tell you that this can often be accompanied with visible bloating.
While we sleep/rest, our bodies can recover. Our natural collagen can be rebuilt and our muscles will repair themselves. Our body cannot take care of itself if we’re not well rested. Everybody is different. However, it is a good idea to get to bed and wake up every day at the same time. Some people are able to thrive on 8+ hours sleep, while others find that they feel more rested with 6-8 hours. You should do what makes you feel the most amazing.
Tip #5: Keep a journal. We encourage you to keep track of your progress and your results, whether you use a journal app on your phone or a paper journal. Although it can be hard to keep your eyes on the big picture when your results don’t seem to be coming in quickly, we recommend keeping a journal that tracks your natural and corseted measurements, how much time you can squeeze in, and any comments about comfort and fit. A journal can help you enjoy your waist training journey. Waist training is about listening to your body.
Here are some inspirations to help you get started with your own Waist Training Journal.
- Set realistic goals for yourself and keep track of them.
- You can track your natural measurements and your corseted measurements.
- Keep track of the hours you spend laced up.
- Did your corset help you today?
- Take photos of your corset and create an album!
- Ask yourself this question: How does my corset affect me?
Tip #6 – Sleep in your corset You read that correctly! Your corset can be worn safely. Many people prefer to train while their bodies are at rest. This is because some people are unable to corset while awake. Others prefer to do it to train for their waist.
Tip #7: Make some corset friends! Although it may not seem important or relevant to your results, this tip is actually the most important and overlooked. You will feel more confident about your waist training choices if you have support. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to seek out advice from experienced waist trainers, have more fun, and meet like-minded people who share a passion in corseting.
