New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. This year you’re ready to do something for yourself and with the help of waist training, ‘a new year a new me’ has never been so easily attainable. In this short guide for corset training for beginners, we’ll give you all the info you need to start your New Year’s journey off right.\r\nMeasuring Yourself for Your New Waist Trainer\r\nBefore purchasing your new waist trainer, it’s important to get your initial measurements right the first time around. Otherwise, you’re not going to get that hour-glass figure quite as easily. You’ll need to measure;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\nUnder the Breasts (right at the bra line)\n\r\n\nWaist (where you bend side to side -usually about 1” above your belly button)\n\r\n\nHips (just below the hip bone -just above where you bend when you sit)\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTorso Length (done sitting upright -measure from the base of the breast to the top of the thigh)\n\r\n\r\nNow that you have your measurements, it’s time to find the right waist trainer for your needs.\r\n\r\nFind the Correct Waist Trainer for Your Desired Results\r\nYour ultimate goals and lifestyle will help determine what size corset will produce the best results. What are your short and long-term goals? Are you planning on aggressive training or something more gradual?\r\n\r\nIn most cases, your new waist trainer should be between 4-7” smaller than your current waist measurement to achieve the best results. So, if you have a 29″ waist, you probably want to order a size 24 corset. Women with natural waists 38”+ have a little more wiggle room and can safely select a corset that’s 7-10” smaller.\r\n\r\nNew to corseting? We recommend erring on the larger side and working your way into a smaller waist cincher over time.\r\nBreaking in Your New Waist Trainer\r\nDon’t just throw on your new waist trainer and expect results. To maintain motivation throughout your New Year resolution, you’ll need to break in your corset the right way. Start wearing your waist cincher just barely snug starting January 1st for 1-2 hours throughout the day.\r\n\r\nThe first several days of breaking in your new waist trainer can be the most difficult. Listen to your body and take it slow. Around the second week of January, you should be able to cinch your waist trainer up a little more. Continue this method for at least the first couple of weeks.\r\nNow it’s Time to Start Training that Waist\r\nCorset training for beginners doesn’t actually have a lot to do with losing weight. Instead, you should look at your waist training sessions as a way to achieve a feminine hour-glass figure. Corsets are designed to gradually manipulate your floating ribs to attain a slimmer, more defined waistline.\r\n\r\nAfter you begin to feel comfortable wearing your corset, it’ll be easy to wear longer and longer. Over time you’ll be able to tighten your corset a little bit every so often and extend the amount of time you’re able to comfortably wear it.\r\nIs Waist Training Safe?\r\nWaist training is completely safe as long as you practice common sense. Whether you’re wearing a corset as a fashion statement or you’re a serious waist trainer, slow and steady is the way to go.\r\n\r\nRemember, a corset doesn’t have to be uncomfortable to achieve a stunning hour-glass figure. In fact, if your waist cincher is painful, you should loosen it immediately or remove it entirely.\r\nBe Patient with Your Waist Training Regimen\r\nRemember this is a process. Take it easy on yourself. For each new corset, it can take upwards of 10-14 days to up your waist training to 6-8 hours a day. Even then, some days will be easier than others. Pushing yourself too hard too soon can actually set your training back. \r\n\r\nA good rule of thumb is; waist train, exercise, eat healthily, and repeat!\r\nSo What are You Waiting For?\r\nCorset training for beginners can be a fun way to achieve the ‘a new year a new me’ mentality. Whatever your New Year’s resolution, a waist trainer can help you gain the self-confidence and motivation you need to meet your end-goals.
