Achieving an hourglass figure
Waist training...what is it? Why do it?
Don't you just love the beautiful bodies of women during the 1950s?
Who could forget those tiny waists?
Women back in the days underwent waist training.
What is it? I hear you say...
It's the art of creating a more curvy figure. It's basically the process of getting your body used to corsets and downsizing throughout the training to help really accentuate the waist.
This is also known as corset training and the “labor of love”.
Without fully committing to it, you won't achieve the figure that you want.
There are three components of successful waist/figure training.
- Proper selection and use of garment
The whole training process is after one main goal, to reduce the size of your waist and possibly, achieve an hourglass figure. Think Bettie Page, Dita Von Teese or Sabina Kelley.
Your companion to help you during the whole training process, a tightly laced training corset. The corset should be made from durable fabric.
This will ensure a successful transformation in your body, waistline, bust and ribcage.
As time passes, waist/corset training can modify the body shape. This will take time, of course and one must be very patient.
During the start of the training process, every woman should know that there is no need to put too much pressure on your corset because this can ruin the stitching and fabric of the garment.
Also, tightening it more than the recommended will not make the process faster and can even result to body aches and unhealthy waist training process.
Your training corset should fit you comfortably especially around the waistline, so you also have to make sure that the material is positioned evenly to handle the strain.
Following the lacing guidelines, the corset will do its job without causing you too much discomfort.
This type of training is not agreed upon by many people as some people think that this carries substantial risks to the health of a person.
However, there are still a lot of women who goes through consistent corset lacing that do not develop any harmful conditions.
The key to ensure the effectiveness of this training process is to do extensive research on the procedure and also take into consideration the advise of professionals.
This is just a quick snapshot of what and how but this shouldn't be enough reading to get you started. So research more if you're serious about this.
