Tips For Wearing A Waist Trainer

by Camila Davidson

Wearing a waist trainer can help you develop stronger abdominal muscles and a more trim waist. However, there is a bit of a learning curve when you first start using a waist trainer. Here are a few tips to help you adapt and ensure you're using the instrument properly.

Buy a trainer that does not roll over your waist.

Make sure you try your waist trainer on before buying. You want one that does not roll over at the waist when it is fully fastened. This either means the waist trainer is too small, or it is not structured enough to fully support your waist. Move around a little in the trainer when you try it on; make sure it does not start bunching or bulging when you bend over or turn to the side. Don't be afraid to try on a few different brands and sizes. What works for a friend may not work for you, since everyone is a different shape.

Start by breaking your trainer in.

Do not just put your trainer on for the full day right off the bat. The trainer needs to be slowly broken in, and you also need time to adapt to wearing it. At first, wearing it for an hour a day is plenty. Over a period of two weeks, work up to wearing it for about 10 hours a day. It's not really beneficial or necessary to wear it for longer than this.

Stay hydrated.

Your waist trainer will cause you to sweat more than you normally wound. This increase in body temperature can help you burn more calories, but keep in mind that your body is also losing water in the process. You may start to feel faint if you are not drinking enough. Get in the habit of always keeping a water bottle with you so you can sip water throughout the day.

As the trainer starts to feel looser, tighten it.

Most people start to notice changes in their waist after about a week or wear. You need to recognize this and tighten the trainer as it starts loosening. Most trainers have three different sets of clasps. You would start on the outermost clasp and adjust the trainer one set smaller every couple of weeks.

With the tips above, you'll have a better experience wearing a waist trainer. Remember to take things slow and give your body time to adapt. Contact a company like Skinny Roti for more information about compression waist trainers.
