How do waist trainers work and what do they actually do?

Waist trainers are a great tool for slimming the waist, helping you lose weight and postpartum recovery. For some, it’s hard to believe a garment like itself can give you those types of results, and they are unsure of how they quite work. In today’s blog, we will be exploring how exactly waist trainers work and what they do when wearing them. 


Waist trainers come in different styles and designs, but all generally do the same thing. They work by wrapping around your body's midsection region, primarily targeting the waistline and abdominal area.  


Compression & Thermogenesis 

While wrapped around the midsection, waist trainers provide compression and thermogenesis. The compression helps to flatten the stomach and cinch the waistline creating a slimmer waist. Some waist trainers are made with materials like Neoprene which are heat-trapping agents. They increase body temperature and perspiration, leading to water weight loss.  


Posture Support 

Waist trainers can have a boning that is made of plastic or steel. This boning gives the garment structure helping it to maintain a straight posture. Wearing a waist trainer protects and supports your core, improving your posture. 


Waist Reduction & Body Shaping 

When worn properly, waist trainers compress the midsection area and, over time, reduce your waist size. They also can enhance your natural curves by creating a smoother, more defined silhouette. This gives you a completely natural body transformation.


Waist trainers provide so many benefits to the body, from slimming and reducing your waist size to correcting your posture.
