Corsets have, for centuries, long been used by women and even men. Even though they have been in existence for a long time, and people have been using them since their invention, when someone from the Kardashian family started to wear one, waist training suddenly became a trend.
Waist Training Vs Corseting
What is waist training? Is it the same as corseting? The two are related, but they are not exactly the same. Waist training is about reducing a person’s waist size gradually through the regular wearing of corsets. Corsets can be worn for fashion, fun, costume, and even for medical purposes.
The first waist training were the warriors of the ancient city of Crete in Greece. To them, having a significantly small waist was a symbol of great athletic prowess. Having small waist then meant that you were a lady of leisure or a man who was lucky enough to have time to look after his figure.
Today, many celebrities have become an influence to the shift in an ideal body type — having a voluptuous yet small-waisted figure. Some of the celebrities who captured the attention of the public because of this body figure are Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Christina Hendricks, and Kim Kardashian, among others.
In corset training, it is necessary to consistently wear a corset to reduce your waist. Though wearing it few times a week can already produce a visible effect, it is ideal to wear the corset daily.
How to Start With This Training
To get started with your corset training, find a corset that is fitted to your size. It is even recommended to have it made especially for you. The right fit and comfort has to be your main concern. But as a start, you can also get a high-quality off-the-rack corset. Once you have it, start wearing it. You don’t have to wear it the whole day right away. This is not a race. You still have to adjust until gradually you get used to wearing your corset more regularly for longer hours.
The longer you wear the corset regularly, the more you see the amazing results it can give you. Aside from having a smaller waist, there are more benefits corset training can provide. Corset training increases one’s self-esteem seeing a relatively shapelier waist in the mirror. And not only does a corset reduce your waist size, but it also improves posture. And, if you have a weak back or scoliosis, a comfortable, well-made corset can be a great help for you.
When to Start Seeing the Result
If you are asking how long it will take for you to see the results of corset training, it depends on the person’s body figure and composition. Some can see the results in just a few weeks, while others have to wait longer for the results. One of the factors that contribute to these results is the flexibility of your core muscles and the firmness of your body composition. People with softer, more flexible muscles tend to corset more quickly than those with a firmer body.
Going on a corset training does not guarantee permanent results. Like having diet and exercise for a proper body figure, corset training, too, requires maintenance.
