FAQ

DOES WAIST TRAINING HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

The material that waist trainers are made from helps to increase your thermal body temperature. Throughout the day your waist is compressed. The compression and perspiration created helps to create a shapely hourglass figure and with less body fat around your waist.

Waist training is part of a healthy life style change. Wearing a waist trainer can help with self confidence, which can help to give you the drive and motivation to change to an all together healthier lifestyle.

When wearing your waist trainer we recommend that you drink lots of water.

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WEAR MY WAIST TRAINER?

Waist training is a gradual process, so the longer you wear the waist trainer for, the faster you will see the results.

It is recommended that you wear the waist trainer for at least 6-8 hours a day for it to be fully effective.

When you first start waist training we recommend that you build up from a few hours a day, until you begin to feel comfortable wearing the waist trainer for long periods of time.

HOW DO I ORDER THE CORRECT SIZE?

Before you order your waist trainer it is important that you measure your waist, as you need to be in the correct size for the waist trainer to work correctly for you.

Once you have measured your waist please check our Size Guide to see which size is right for you. If you are in between sizes then go for the smaller size

I'M NOT SURE IF MY WAIST TRAINER FITS CORRECTLY

Your waist trainer should be tight, but not too tight as you need to be able to breathe comfortably and carry on with your daily routine.

Your waist trainer will be difficult to get on at first and it may feel tight. This is okay as your waist trainer needs to be tight to work correctly!

SHOULD I WEAR MY WAIST TRAINER TO THE GYM?

Absolutely! Using your waist trainer at the gym will help you to achieve your results quicker, as it creates perspiration around your love handles, stomach and lower back.

We do not recommend that you wear the waist trainer for yoga or any other exercise that involves flexibility, but it’s great for running, walking and weights etc.

CAN I WAIST TRAIN DURING PREGNANCY?

No! Please do not try to waist train during pregnancy! Your baby needs unrestricted space to grow and develop.

 

IS IT OK TO WAIST TRAIN AFTER PREGNANCY?

Yes. Waist training is great post-pregnancy as the waist trainer helps to fuse the stomach muscles back together after being stretched during pregnancy. It also also helps strengthen your back and lose your baby weight quicker. It can also help to give some much needed confidence as it instantly slims your figure.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you only start to waist train after you have consulted your doctor and had your post pregnancy checkup.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO DOWNSIZE?

This is personal to everyone as everyone’s body is different and it depends on your dedication to waist training. Noticeable results can appear in a matter of days, but may take weeks or months

Results show gradually, so remember to take before pictures and regularly measure your waist.

As a general guide, if your waist trainer doesn't feel tight on the tightest hooks you are ready to downsize.

 

MY SKIN IRRITATED/I HAVE A RASH.

All of our waist trainers contain latex. If you are allergic to latex please do not use one.

If you have developed a skin irritation or rash then remove the waist trainer straight away and email us as you may be allergic.

Please note that skin irritations and rashes can also be caused by heat rashes, sweating or rubbing. To help resolve this issue try wearing a thin vest top underneath the trainer.

HOW DO I GET MY WAIST TRAINER ON?

2. Start at the bottom on the loosest hooks
3. Work your way up to the top

You may need a little help with putting the waist trainer on until you get the hang of it.
