We all know that getting back our pre-baby bodies is a struggle. At least, it is for us mere mortals – just a flick through a gossip magazine or browse blogs online and you’ll see stories of how celebrities got back to the prebaby weight just weeks after giving birth. So, how do they do it? Well, aside from likely utilizing the help of dieticians and personal trainers, many of them reap the benefits of waist training.
So, which celebrities used waist training to successfully get their prebaby bodies back?
1. Kim Kardashian
Kim K was one of the first celebrities to bring waist training into the spotlight, so of course we have to mention her first! Kim’s incredible hourglass shape helped trends transition from the fashionable boyish shapes of the 90s into the beautiful curves we strive for today.
2. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe shocked everyone when she lost a ton of weight in recent years, even bouncing back fast after having her daughter. She doesn’t pull any punches when she talks about how much work she put in – she put in hours in the gym and completely changed her diet. Of course, her tiny waist has been helped along by religious waist training.
3. Kylie Jenner
Kylie is well-known for her glow-up transformation, and it wasn’t a huge surprise when she bounced-back so fast after having Stormi, since she had the benefit of youth on her side. Of course, that didn’t mean she didn’t put in the effort – she started wearing her waist trainer as soon as it was safe to do so (six weeks).
4. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba has always taken a spot on “Hottest Celebrity” lists, and so it’s no surprise she puts in a ton of work to stay that way. After giving birth in 2011, she apparently wore a double corset day and night for three months to regain her prebaby figure. Fortunately, waist training can get you great results without resorting to such extreme measures!
5. Kim Zolciak
Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta fame is a mother of six! You’d never be able to tell, however, because Kim has a tiny waist. When accused of photoshopping her images, she showed off her waist trainer. She waist trains for five hours every day, and has lost an incredible 4 inches off her waist since she started.
Singer Ciara has always had a slim body, but after she gave birth to her son, she wanted just a little help. She decided to wear a waist trainer to workout in – she was so pleased with the results that she shared pictures of herself in her waist trainer online.
7. Snooki Polizzi
Snooki gained fame on Jersey Shore, and is famous for representing us short gals! Snooki gave birth to her daughter Giovanna just a few months before her wedding, and so she was determined to get back in shape. Thanks to vigorous workouts and dedicated waist-training, she looked incredible on her big day.
8. Farrah Abraham
Farrah is another star that had youth on her side when it came to bouncing back fast after becoming a mom, but it’s not that alone that helped her maintain a killer figure. Farrah used a waist trainer while working out to get back her flat stomach.
9. Jessica Simpson
After having baby number three, Jessica Simpson joked about doing stretches while working out in her “rubber corset”. The star had a rough time in the media for her weight gain for a while, but currently looks sexy as hell! Clearly, the waist trainer magic is working!
10. Nicki Minaj
Okay, so this one’s cheating a bit since, at the time of writing, Nicki’s baby is only just over a month old. But she’s quickly approaching the six-week mark, and Nicki has always been such a huge fan of waist training that it seems certain she’ll be training again soon!
