On Your First Day of Waist Training:

Ensure the Right Fit: Purchase the correct size and type of waist trainer based on your measurements and body type.

Avoid wearing a loose waist trainer, as it can shift during the day, causing friction and potentially resulting in skin chafing. #ProTip: If your waist trainer is easy to hook, it's likely that you have a loose fit.

Opt for a snug fit instead, as this is crucial for effective compression and achieving desired results.

On the first day of wearing a waist trainer, it's advisable to start with just 1 to 2 hours. This allows your body to gradually adjust to the compression and allows the waist trainer to season as you begin your waist-training journey.

Increase the duration by 1 to 2 hours each day until you reach the recommended 4 to 8 hours daily for at least 4 - 5 days a week optimal results.


Can you wear a waist trainer during your period?

While some women find that wearing a waist trainer during their period helps relieves bloating and menstrual cramps, others may feel discomfort and find it less suitable due to excessive bloating.

If it feels uncomfortable due to bloating, it's advisable to take a break from wearing the waist trainer and resume waist training once your period is over, ensuring a more comfortable experience.



Waist-Train Safely. Listen to your body and remove the waist trainer immediately if you experience any pain, discomfort or difficulty breathing.
