What Are The Different Types Of Waist Trainers?
There are basically two main types of waist trainers: steel-boned corsets and latex waist trainers (sometimes called cinchers).
- Steel-boned corsets are laced up at the back; pulling in the waist and making you look several inches smaller.
- Steel-boned corsets are stronger than latex waist trainers and give you more hourglass shaping and better support for your posture.
- Latex waist trainers or/and cinchers are typically made of latex, nylon, or spandex, and some even have some boning made of plastic.
- Latex waist trainers are more comfortable, and easier to work out in and even sleep in.
What Do I Do Before Buying A Waist Trainer?
First, measure your waistline. This will help you choose the best for you.
Before taking your measurements, you have to:
- Take off any clothes you have on, especially if your clothes covers your torso.
- Using a measuring tape, measure the narrowest part of your torso (the part that bends from side to side.
- Sucking in your stomach will not give you your true measurements, so don’t do that.
- The tape should wrap comfortably around you, and not be tight.
Once you know your size, you can start looking for where to buy a waist trainer.
