I've seen all over the Internet about this waist trainer corset(?). I've looked but never really believed it works but now I've seen more and more....started to wonder if it really helps and curious about trying. Has anyone tried this?? Does it work??

Hi I heard on doctors that waist training is supposed to be temporary like for a month because it damages ur organs pushing them to ur chest and it's not a forever fix eventually they have to diet and exercise but as a quick fix i.e for a wedding event u can it's not safe but u can

Hi Emi,

I am current trying the waist cincher.I purchased it a few months ago and could not bare to wear it more than an hour, so I gave up. Recently, well last Tuesday I decided to try again and by Thursday I have been able to wear up to 8 hours. I have yet to see a difference as I have not wore it longer as it requires 30 days  I have been reading.

Thanks for the comment!! Let me know how you like it or if you see any changes.... From what I've read it seems like they run smaller in size. I really wish I could go to a store and try them on but I guess you will have to buy  those online.

Yes they do run small. I purchased a size 34 which I believe is a medium. They can be pretty expensive, but I found a site Google pretty girl curves and it should pop up. I paid less than 50 bucks and it should have been way more expensive. I am going to buy one for the gym. My friend uses the gym one and her tummy is soooo flat.

The waist trainer or of any kind is actually not good for your body and organs and lower and floating ribs i suggest not to use it nor try it

It's not that bad for the body, provided you're lacing and wearing it correctly. Overtightening the waist trained is what's going to do the most damage. A waist trainer is only meant to reduce your waist by three inches at max. Also, you want to be sure that you're getting a good quality garment -- circular boning is middling quality, plastic boning is just for costumes, but flat steel boning is what you want in a good waist trainer.

I'm lucky enough to have a corset shop in town; they educated me on these myths.
