It's no secret that corsets, cinchers and other waist training garments are the most effective and efficient way to achieve the hourglass figure of your dreams.
Will need a LOT of pictures, esp if we can get any like step by step image sequences of lacing up a corset
We admit it: corsets are pretty intense-looking garments. At first glance, it can be difficult to tell what is up, down, wrong, right, backwards or forwards. To those just entering the exciting world of corsets, simply putting one on can seem like a daunting, near-impossible task. After all, there’s probably a good reason why the women of long ago often employed servants whose primary task it was to help them in and out of their corsets, right?
We've already said so much about the many ways that corsets can improve your life. Skinnier waist, sexier figure, greater confidence, more intense workouts...the list goes on. But did you know that corsets can even have medical and therapeutic benefits too? That's right! Corsets can improve your posture, prevent or heal various injuries, and help manage chronic pain and a variety of mental conditions.
Corsets have been around for hundreds of years. For the most part, we're super psyched about that fact - who doesn't love the knowledge that they're part of a centuries-long trend which includes everyone from royalty to movie stars? But, there is one less than amazing side effect of this amazing history: Corsets have had a lot of time to change and develop, and corset makers and wearers have had a lot of time to experiment.
Until recently, corsets seemed to be a thing of the past. The word “corset” would bring to mind actresses in elaborate, period-accurate costumes, not an integral part of a modern, stylish wardrobe. But then, suddenly, everyone from fitness trainers to fashion bloggers to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba started talking about corsets – specifically, talking about how corsets became an important part of their successful weight loss journeys. The question is, of course, is it true? Is there really a connection between wearing a corset and shedding off those pesky pounds?
