Waist cinchers are the latest fad in the industry for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. This trend, also promoted by the Kardashians, is used by women for the prime purpose of body shaping, followed by waist training. In short, wearing a waist cincher will not only give you the illusion of a shapely waist, but will also help in gradual reduction and reshaping of your actual waist.
Before and After Results
Waist cinchers give the illusion of reshaping the waist as is evident from the image above. Waist cinchers also end up ‘slimming’ the waist for a better fit of clothes. For example, the FlexeesMaiden form Women’s Shapewear Torsette is nude colored and gives the illusion of real skin through any color of clothes.
The essential and primary function of wasit cinchers is to take off a few inches from the waist, and give it an hourglass shape. Contrary to popular belief that only women are the audience for this kind of product, waist cinchers are also available for men for reshaping their bodies. For example, a commonly favored waist cincher for men is the Squeem “The Trimmer” Firm Compression Waist Cincher.
How does it work?
Waist cinchers achieve the promised results through the following ways:
- By gripping the waist tightly, waist cincher provides little room for any movement or air to pass through. This increases the thermal temperature of the body.
- When it is worn throughout the day, there are certain routine activites such as walking, sitting, standing, which result in sweating and perspiration of the body. When the body perspires, the waist cincher is tight enough around the waist to bring about a multiplier effect. As a result, your natural weight loss through sweat is augmented with the help of a waist cincher. Consequentially, the body ends up losing more weight with a waist cincher than it would without a waist cincher.
- The constant compression of the waist along with complementing workout sessions can help increase the impact of the weight loss. This is where the factor of waist ‘training’ comes in. if somebody wants a drastic effect, then the waist cincher to go for is the Beauty Classic Waist Cincher (Latex – Fajestec’s Womens). For the purpose of waist training i.e. wearing the cincher during workouts, a cincher to try out is the Waist-Training Workout Corset by LMB.
How does it feel?
Waist cinchers are far from comfortable. They are tight, and make it all the more difficult to breathe. An easier cincher on the waist would be the Leonisa Firm Control Waist Cincher since it comes without hooks and can be just slid up to the body. However, there is an element of discomfort in all waist cinchers.
When wearing a waist cincher, expect to feel some discomfort and expect some instantly visually different look. However, permanent changes to the waist are dependent on how prolonged the usage is and whether a complementary workout session is being conducted or not. Moreover, different kinds of waist cinchers produce a different look especially when other clothes are worn over it. Hence it is better to go for the one which gives the most natural look.
