Waist trainer you say?

Training your waist is a gradual process of reducing your waist size using a corset. Wearing a waist trainer, exercising and eating a healthy diet can dramatically reduce your waist size; instantly giving you a beautiful slimlined hourglass silhouette whilst permanently getting rid of unwanted inches around your waist.
Slimming Solutions are proud stockists of the Esbelt Bela Vest and Ipanema waist training corset, made from 100% natural rubber with triple filtered cotton designed to enhance your figure and take inches off your waistline.

While wearing the waist trainer, the tight compression will help to reduce hunger encouraging you to eat little but more often, rather than having three large meals a day.

It’s a practice which requires discipline and is best achieved when the following work in harmony:
• Healthy diet
• Daily use of your waist trainer
• Exercise

Results will be slower and more difficult to obtain if the above are not practiced as a gradual program of modifying the shape of the body.

So, what are the steps to follow for correct waist training?

Introduction: Your body must become used to the constriction of waist training.

Your waist trainer must be broken in otherwise it could become damaged.

During the first few weeks of wearing the corset you must not over do it. Start by wearing the corset for a maximum of 4 hours per day. Gradually add an hour or two to your daily waist training program until you are able to wear the corset for a full 10 hours every day. Wear the trainer on the first set of clasps. Then once it is worn-in you can then begin to use the second set of clasps making the corset tighter. As your waist becomes smaller, the waist trainer will become more comfortable to wear and will not feel as tight. Now you can change to the next size down as part of your continued waist reduction program. Bear in mind that everyone’s body shape is different.

A waist trainer will strengthen your core all the while improving your posture.

Maintenance: If you are serious about waist training then it is very important to look after your corset; over time they take a lot of punishment from regular use but if you take some simple steps you can extend the life of the garment considerably:

1. Cleaning. Hand wash your corset in cold water. Do not put in the tumble dryer! Lay out flat to dry.

2. Air dry your corset at the end of the day. They must be dried out by turning the lining to the upper side and hanging over the back of a chair. Never hang on or near a heat source as over time this will cause shrinkage and eventual damage to the stitching

3. Alternate corsets. Rather than buy one corset, purchase 2, and alternate them so that each corset gets to ‘rest’ between each wearing

Remember, for long term permanent waist reduction your waist trainer should be used in used alongside a healthy diet with moderate, regular exercise.


Celebrities are fast becoming huge fans of waist training and they aren’t afraid to let us all know, posting regular snaps of themselves wearing their trainers on social media.

Kourtney Kardashian is eager to find some time saving strategies to shed those post-pregnancy pounds following the birth of her son Reign 6 weeks ago.

The reality star turned to her sister’s favourite figure-honing gadget as she revealed in an Instagram on Friday.

She captioned the shot: ‘Gettin’ it right, gettin’ it tight…with my waist shaper! #waistgangsociety’

And several months ago, Kourtney’s sister Kim, 34, shared her love of the ‘tightlacing’ practice with a selfie in mom Kris’s foyer while wearing the corset saying: ‘I’m really obsessed with waist training!’
There’s no doubt the sisters are huge fans of waist trainers which are designed to whittle down wearers waistlines over time with prolonged use.

Their younger sister Khloe, 30, is also known to be a fan, sharing a selfie of her tiny waistline earlier last year 2014 saying: ‘Who doesn’t love to feel tight and right?!?’
Most recently, reality star JWoww (real name Jenni Farley) showed off her new cleavage in an Instagram photo where she was waist training, a trend made popular by Kim Kardashian.
