While we’re here talking about which exercises to do while wearing a waist trainer and things you should know before you start waist training - we might as well chat about which kind of waist trainer is right for individual needs.
Everyone has different goals and needs with their waist training, and you best believe there are different kinds of waist shapers to suit each of them!
Choosing to waist train comes with many questions and confusions, one of which being what kind of waist trainer you should use. There are two kinds of waist trainers that are the best to go for, out of all the options on the market. The everyday one and the breathable one. Anything else is just confusing. So out of these two, which one is right for you?
The everyday, standard waist trainer.
You know the ones. The one you wear a few hours a day, every day under clothing and it works to slim your waist and give you more defined curves over the course of your day. They're made to be more durable and more comfortable so they last longer and can be worn every day with ease. Because they're designed to be strong and more durable, they give you more intense and more defined curves. They can be worn during a workout to help support your posture while lifting and strengthen your core. Just remember that everyday waist trainers aren’t breathable and will get hotter and sweatier - quicker.
This kind of waist trainer is right for you if you’re looking for something you can wear for a few hours every day that will help you slim down, get a curvier figure, and maintain your workout results on it's own with minimal effort. It’ll suit you if you’re looking for more intense results and stronger curves in a shorter amount of time. And if you’re looking for something that will hold up for the entire time you’re wearing it.
If you’re just starting out, it can help give you the results you’re looking for quicker.
The best waist trainer for everyday is the:
Original Figure Former.
The breathable waist trainer.
These waist trainers are a little different. Made with breathable materials that allow heat to escape easily, they're designed to be worn mostly while in the gym to support your posture and help you achieve your body goals quicker. You won't get quite so hot or sweaty in this one. This also means they're great to wear during summer, so you may even find yourself swapping for this one during the hotter months. Because they’re made with perforated breathable materials, they aren’t going to be quite as strong and will provide more subtle results to curves. (Make sure it’s a well made, sturdy trainer otherwise it won’t do anything at all.)
This kind of waist trainer is right for you if you’re looking for subtle curves and need something to help support your workout efforts. It's perfect if you’re just looking for a waist trainer you can wear during exercise to help speed up your slimming, toning or strengthening results. If you’re just starting out, this one is great if you’re looking to get more subtle results while you're getting used to it.
The best breathable waist trainer is the:
Aero Figure Former.
PS. If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between these two kinds of waist trainers, this is it!
When it comes to the complexities of post-pregnancy knowing your body is the key.
A breathable waist trainer will suit you if you run a little hotter or your body feels more tender, as it won’t be quite so intense. If you’re participating in a post-pregnancy fitness routine, this one is even better as it will feel much more comfortable.
An everyday waist trainer will suit you if you’re the opposite of the above!
If you’ve had a c-section, it’s best to wait until your doctor gives you the green light.
Who knew so much thought goes into a simple waist trainer? Now that we know the differences, do you know which one is right for you?
