by Valentino Perrina

Getting a slimmer body is an ultimate goal for many women. Unhealthy eating habits are the real culprit behind an out of proportion body. Lack of exercise is also a factor that contributes to this problem. Some women face the issue after giving birth. The changes their body goes during pregnancy makes them gain weight. Sometimes regular workouts aren’t enough to bring the changes that they want.

And so when all else fails, most people resort to waist trainers. The new slimming trend has taken the fitness industry by storm and everyone is asking the same question. Do waist trainers really work?

To answer this question, let’s first take a look at how they work.

The Magic of Waist Trainers

Waist trainers are just an updated version of an elasticated belt. According to popular claims, the tight belt trains the tummy to hold a small and firmer shape. No scientific research has proved the science behind this method, but it has been tried by many celebrities. Because of their fan base and widespread media attention, numerous people believe that waist trainers work.

The manufacturers have instructed people to wear the belt for about 4 hours every day. But in the hopes of getting a shapely body, many people wear the waist trainers for way longer. Even thinking about it might sound uncomfortable to you but the people who have used these contraptions swear by their effectiveness.

Do Waist Trainers Work?

Following the trend set by the Kardashians, among other celebrities, many people have started swearing waist trainers. Some people prefer to wear them even during workouts. Needless to say, it is can be quite dangerous. The only good waist trainers are at is to slim down your waist temporarily. Or at least that’s what most people thought at first.

The trainers force-slim your body (yes, that’s a made up phrase, but nevertheless true). They also fool the tummy with the tight compression. All the pressure that’s on your tummy helps to reduce the food intake and also develop the habit of eating 5–6 smaller meals rather than 3 big meals.

The garment of a waist trainer causes perspiration and we all know that is good for fat loss. The idea is that when straddled in the tight waist strainer, your body will create thermogenisis. This nature process will help your body expel impurities and toxins through perspiration.

So when it comes to answering the question if waist trainers work, then yes, they do. Just maybe not in the way you hope. They are good as waist shapers but if you need permanent results, you better adopt a healthy lifestyle. Waist trainers alone might not be the best idea. If you want to take up waist training, make sure you take precautions. They compress your tummy and there are some vital organs situated nearby. Wearing them for too long can be dangerous.

So take care and fulfill your dream of a shapely body.
