    Default Corset training

    This is probably not going to be advised by the majority here, but what do you think of corset training? It's recently been increasing in popularity after certain celebrities have been said to do it.

    I'm close to trying it but the side effects are slightly worrying. Do you like the look of this? Would you ever do it? Have you done it? Opinions??

    This woman has gotten close to the results that I would be interested in getting, I've seen certain women who have freakishly tiny waists and that is not the look I'm going for. Just a more defined hour glass shape. Of course, I'm also starting to work out and I'm not relying on it for weight loss, it's the shape I like.





    And, ok, I know Kim K is the Anti-Christ but she looks amazing here :

    It works very well. You just have to make sure you actually work out and eat right while wearing it. A lot of girls think they can just wear the waist trainer and it'll magically make them slim. Nope, you have to put in the work along with it. Work out in it when you can. Lots of water, fiber, avoid trans fats, etc.

    The hairstylists I work with use them, and the only ones who are really getting results from it are the ones who actually train with it on, etc.

    I can't imagine working out with it..is that even possible? I used to wear the cheap ones with the plastic ribbing and even then i could barely even sit down lol. I haven't really researched and seen what it looks like on women who have a lot of loose skin on their stomachs...I imagine it would look very odd. Like a barbie with a melting stomach or something LOL

    Allie, the health risks are that it squishes and realigns all of your internal organs (supposedly). I didn't want to make it a continuous thing, just mild shaping so hopefully it wouldn't do any of that kind of damage. A nice, more defined curve would be awesome.

    There are things called waist trainers that are ideal for working out in. They are flimsy material and don't suck you in or constrict you. The way they work is that they cause your midsection to sweat lot, and stimulates blood flow (ever wonder why your limbs usually have less fat than other body areas? It's because these areas tend to get more blood circulation.) In turn, it helps cut stomach fat. A lot of body builders use them when they're cutting. They're a lot safer to work out in than corsets are, and you see results immediately after a workout.



    I use one and absolutely love it. It helped me achieve more of an hourglass shape.

    Oh, ok..those are different than the corsets for sure. If the corset doesn't work i will probably try those since they seem a lot healthier. I could really go for this to get my waist down for my yearly physical.

    I went ahead and bought this corset:

    I'll see how it goes and test it out for like a month or so. Even if it doesn't work, it's still gorgeous...maybe I'll use it for play time or something lol.

    I would think it would work better if worn as a child while the bones are still developing, the way heads or feet have been shaped in the past. Or is it meant to change the tummy, not the ribcage? If so, why not use a wide belt instead?

    I'm not making any case for it, one way or the other. I like the look, I'd also worry abt health implications. Even though light corseting is not that extreme, I expect.

    I mean, when I was pregnant all my internal organs were temporarily displaced. They shifted back into place postpartum. The human form is somewhat malleable.

    So I would also wonder abt maintenance requirements.

    The history is interesting, the following discusses thinness and self-starvation as developing along with the (tight-laced) corset:

    CORSETS, OF COURSE
    It isn't the first time this frustrating condition has run rampant among young women. During the 19th century -- perhaps the only other period in history when the size and shape of the female form were as widely opined upon as it is today -- a woman was nothing without her waspish waistline. Yes, if ever there was a fashion trend that changed the course of medical history, the corset was it.

    At the time, England's prim and proper attitude towards sex had a trickle-down effect that compromised the health of the nation. The common wisdom dictated that women who ate a lot, especially in public, were also wildcats in the bedroom. Those who could not control their appetite for food were similarly powerless against their appetite for sex. Nobody wanted to give the false impression that they were unable to restrain themselves, lest the nation descend into debauchery and immorality, so thin became the ideal. Painfully thin would be a better way to describe it, since the popular but cruel whale-boned corsets of the day reduced women's waists to grotesque proportions and distorted the growth of teenage girls everywhere.

    This dreadful garment, particularly favoured by women in the upper levels of society, was an extreme in itself. It employed a structural support network of fabric reinforced by whale baleen and even steel, with laces tightened by one's dressing maid to the point of near-death. Even children were given training corsets from a very young age to prepare them for the rigors of the real thing. Of course, the less body fat there was to displace, the easier it was to wear the corset -- and the more desirable the silhouette -- so legions of young ladies added self-starvation into the mix. By the age of 14, respectable young women were expected to be in full corsets, the constricting garment restricting any last possible chance at child-like play or comfort. Life, from then on, was stiff.

    The combination of fasting and fashion -- as well as organ damage in the form of liver, lung and stomach displacement caused by "tight-lacing," as it was called -- had Victorian women everywhere fainting and swooning their lives away. It actually got to the point where women were not able to support the weight of their upper bodies without their corset, so weakened and distorted did their ribcages and spines become over time. The ideal waistline was bearing down on 50 centimetres, but the smaller the better. Stories abounded of girls dying from their livers being punctured by their own ribs, or livers and stomachs being slowly cut in half by too-tight corsets, though no actual proof exists.

    Many physicians decried the practice, and great public debates ensued about the safety of corseting and the habits of self-starvation it encouraged. Still, few doctors did anything about it, nor could they had they wanted to. The fact was, men of the day were charmed by tiny waists, as well as impressed by the degree of suffering women endured to achieve it on their account.
    ETA: here someone did an MRI of corseted organs:

    I got mine in the mail yesterday. The longest I can even tolerate wearing it is like 20 minutes. You can't even sit in this thing comfortably, how do women wear this for hours on end?? I'm not even pulling it that tight and I can barely breathe or move and it's too noticeable to wear underneath clothes.

    It looks super awesome as a costume piece though lol

    Im kind of curious if this will make my stomach look worse. I mean, I don't have a flat stomach so where does the fat go? Does it pool all in the middle or something like how it looks after having kids? IDK, it was expensive so i'll give it a shot but I don't think this will be a thing i do often, way too uncomfortable. The only time i could see wearing it would be before sex or when you're sleeping.



    It makes me look like I have a tiny waist so that is awesome but it's too bulky to wear under clothes. And then I get this bulge in the back where it pushes my fat up so it looks like i have back boobs. I do feel like it helps keep your posture really well. IDK.

    Looks hot! I see it's a short version.

    I should have ordered 20", the 22 one is a bit too large, and I struggle to put it alone.
    I manage to breath too. They say that you need to start gradually, like 2 hours per day at the beginning.

    I could go out while wearing it I think, it looks decent, maybe a bit goth, but quite ok.
