We know. It sounds too good to be true. “I can shed pounds and inches from my waist while I SLEEP? Impossible!” is what you’re probably thinking right about now. And yes, it is the case that sleeping in a waist trainer is not guaranteed to work for everyone. Even if it does, finding a comfortable position might take significantly more finagling and making adjustments than sleeping without one. However, with a little patience and care, it’s definitely doable!
Maternity girdles have a unique place in the world of waist training. They are definitely similar to other waist trainers, but have a different purpose and do not usually slim the waist as much as a traditional corset or even cincher does. This is because they are designed less to produce an hourglass figure and more to provide support to the abdomen and lower back of postpartum women while their bodies recover from giving birth.
We've mentioned in some of our previous articles that just wearing a waist trainer isn't a magical, immediate solution to shedding those pesky pounds. Just wearing the trainer for the recommended 8-10 hours per day might give you the appearance of a skinnier waist and help you fit into tightest and sexiest outfits, but it will not produce any noticeable long-term weight loss effects.
But wait, you ask, what if losing weight was my primary reason for getting into waist training in the first place? What am I even doing this for?
As the popularity of waist training rises, so too do the number of articles, studies, blogs and even Internet comments sharing opinions and information on the topic. It can be extremely difficult to sort through the massive influx of text and pictures regarding waist training – and even more difficult to sort the false information from the true. For every article or blog displaying legitimate, factual information, there are just as many spreading myths.
Every field has its own specialized vocabulary, and unfortunately waist training is no exception. For new fans or waist training novices, the differences between “corsets” “waist cinchers” “waist trimmers” “butt lifters” and even between more general terms such as “shapewear” can be extremely difficult to pin down and clearly understand. This, in turn, can make it significantly more difficult than necessary for individuals to select the waist training garment – or garments – which work best for their body, their needs and their goals.
