Check Out The Disadvantages Of Wearing A Waist Trainer

I want you to know how your body can change if you decide to start wearing a corset or a waist trainer regularly. Here are the things you should be aware of before taking the next step.

You won’t lose weightI'm sure that you might notice that you’ve lost a bit of weight after wearing a waist trainer. This weight, however, is most likely to be water that you’ve lost through sweating and not body fat. You might lose some body fat too because the waist trainer will squeeze your stomach and make you feel full. However, this way of losing weight isn’t healthy, nor is it sustainable.

You won’t get an hourglass figureYour waist will look smaller when you wear a waist trainer. But once you take it off, it will change back to its natural shape. Even if you see some results right after you take the waist trainer off and for a short period of time afterward, this effect won’t last long.

Feeling uncomfortableEven if you believe you see some minor changes after using a waist trainer, they’re probably not worth it just because of how uncomfortable it is. A 2010 study on weight loss also wanted to see whether or not wearing a corset would help maintain a healthy weight in the long term. However, they weren’t able to carry this part of the study out because the majority of participants stopped wearing the corsets because of the discomfort.

You might develop back problemsWhile you’re wearing a waist trainer, it can help you maintain good posture. But if you wear it too much, it can weaken your core muscles. So when you take it off, you may have poor posture and even back pain.

You’ll find it harder to breatheA waist trainer can also make it harder to breathe because it can reduce your lung capacity by 30% to 60% and you might pass out. The way waist trainers affect your lungs can also lead to even more serious problems, like inflammation and a buildup of fluids.

Waist trainers can damage your organs and ribsBecause a waist trainer squeezes your stomach, it affects what’s going on inside. This compression can change the position of the organs, and it’ll affect how they function along with your blood flow in general. Wearing corsets regularly and over long periods of time can even cause your ribcage to become deformed.
