How Long Do Waist Trainers Take to Work?

So you’re interested in buying a waist trainer – or you’ve recently bought one – and you’re asking that question all waist training-newbies ask: “how long do waist trainers take to work?”

We’ve all asked that question because we’ve seen the amazing results other women have had, and we want them ASAP. There’s no shame in that! But how long will it actually take to see results?

How Long Do I Need to Use a Waist Trainer to Get an Hourglass Figure? 

Unfortunately, there’s no specific answer – it depends on several different factors, one of the biggest factors being how frequently you wear it. If you want to see fast results, you need to be wearing it religiously every day for as many hours as you can, up to the maximum. While it’s important to build up the amount of time you wear it over time (this is often called “seasoning”), once you can wear it all day you’ll see better results – while losing 1-3 inches instantaneously!

You can even wear your waist trainer while working out, and if you’d like to know more, we’ve told you everything you need to know in this blog post

Another huge factor is your body and your lifestyle. While using a waist trainer alone while maintaining your diet and lifestyle will give you results, improving your diet and exercising regularly will help you see more dramatic results more quickly, as your core tightens up and responds to the waist trainer.

Of course, unfortunately, genetics is also a factor, as if you naturally have an hourglass figure or a slim figure, you’ll see your results quickly, while ladies with a model shape, apple, triangle, and some pear shapes will have to wait a little longer for their hourglass figure.

How Do Waist Trainers Work?

Waist trainers work using a combination of compression, reducing your appetite, positive motivation, and improved posture. To find out more, read our blog post here answering this very question. 

How Can I Speed Up My Results?

You can speed up the time it takes to get an hourglass figure through:

  1. Wearing your waist trainer for as long as possible (2 – 8 hours a day, building up slowly)
  2. Sizing down when it starts to feel loose
  3. Eating more healthy foods
  4. Exercising regularly (and wearing a waist trainer while you train)
  5. Wearing other shapewear garments (like our butt lift jeans) which will help accentuate your booty
  6. Restart the seasoning process when you size-down your waist trainer, don’t jump to full-day wear when you reduce to a smaller size, ease back into it – you’re training your waist, remember! 

What Waist Trainer Will Give Me the Fastest Results? 

There are a range of different styles of waist trainer available, and provided you have bought the right size from a reputable brand, it will help you train your waist to give you that hourglass figure we all desire.

If you’re going to wear your waist trainer while working out, it’s a good idea to have a couple so you can wash one when it gets sweaty but continue to waist train with the other. This ensures you don’t miss out on time you could be training while you wait for your waist trainer to dry – don’t put them in the dryer!

We offer a wide range of styles to choose from, all of which are of the very best quality and have helped our customers get some amazing results.

For a great all-round waist trainer you can use while working out, we recommend our Sports Latex Waist Cincher (1026) , which is affordable and hugely popular (as you can see from our customer photos)

Classic Latex Waist Cincher (1021)  Both of these waist trainers help you burn fat (accelerating weight loss by x 3!) and are super comfortable while ensuring you keep that all-important good posture.
