Working for the Shape

I’ve always had a bit of a thing for the old Victorian style corset. Even when I was a kid I used to look at pictures of women back in the 19th century and admire their tiny waists and wish I could achieve that look myself. Now that I’m well and truly an adult, I want to slim my waist even more! I’d love to have the perfect hourglass figure so I’ve started going to the gym. To get the most out of my exercise regime, I’ve recently discovered the waist trainer – basically like an old school corset, but designed for wear in the gym to help you to sweat and to lose even more weight from those problem areas around the middle of the body.

 

Waist trainers, sometimes called waist cinchers, are a kind of undergarment which is worn around the waist to slim down the waistline, and when it’s used along with a healthy diet and exercise, it is extra effective in helping the wearer to get into shape. There are two kinds of waist trainer out there, the ones with sturdy metal boning and the ones that have flexible plastic boning. I need a flexible one, since that allows me to exercise properly while wearing it, and I can easily wear it under my clothes.

 

Waist training helps the wearer to get a smaller waist much more quickly with permanent results when used in conjunction with a proper diet and workout regime. It also helps to improve the posture, so it’s something I’m definitely keen to try.

 

I’ve been doing some research to find out which is the best waist shaper for me. There are lots of reviews of the best rated waist trimmers out there, but I’ve been reading through them all and come up with three that I think will do well for me.

 

SEXYWG Workout Trainer

SEXYWG Workout Trainer

This really affordable waist trainer is functional, durable and well-designed. Thanks to its compact size it is easy to work out while wearing it, but it is also sturdy and supportive. It is also breathable to make it more comfortable to wear. With its narrower width and tapered design, it trims in just the right places without impeding motion while the wings prevent bulges or rolls.

 

Thanks to the latex core, it is very durable and its wire springs are supportive to the posture. As the backing is also mesh, it dries quickly preventing sweaty odors, and it fastens easily with velcro for extra ease of use. On the downside, it is pretty obvious under my tighter gym wear and apparently, the colors might come off on light colored clothes.

This popular waist trimmer has well-placed supports to improve posture without affecting motion

range. It is very good for strength training exercises and has been designed to protect the back, helping to eliminate back pain. With its canvas perforated construction it is very breathable without causing overheating, and yet it still stimulates fat burning from around the waist. With 2 stage adjustments using velcro, it’s easy to get the right fit and it still comes in at an affordable price. On the downside, it runs small and the smaller width doesn’t give quite as much coverage.

This designer model offers superior flexibility and support thanks to its latex sturdy core and as it has a perforated structure, it ensures extra breathability. Perfect for use while working out, it is slim and not bulky while offering a great range of movement. Even though there are no bones in this trimmer, it offers plenty of support without any stiff parts and the quality is obvious with this garment. On the downside, it’s still very obvious when worn under tight clothes and it is still quite hot to wear when compared to some of the other models. It is also very small, so a size up might be required.

 

I think I might go with the SEXYWG trimmer since it is really affordable and is said to work well. I can’t wait to get to the gym with my new waist trimmer and get that great figure I’ve been dreaming of!
